To hit on. Learned this messaging with an aussie online who promised he wouldn't try to 'crack on to' me. Apparently it's aussie slang.

A disparaging term often used to refer to riders of a Special Needs bus. So-called because they often assume that we are all 'Retards', which is not true for several reasons,

A. being that many of us are autistic or have cerebral palsy, a seizure disorder or some sort of physical disability, or require a service dog due to phsychological problems, blindness, or deafness- none of the above being neccesarily congruent with Mental Retardation in any way, and in fact most often being accompanied by a normal or even Above Average, Gifted, or Genius IQ.

Reason B. is that while some children and young adults riding the so-called 'Retard Rocket' may have Down Syndrome or Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (fas)or, some other disability accompanied or characterised by Mental Retardation, they are in fact not 'Retards,' they are people, with personalities, emotions, talents, and challenges- and especially considering that there is no such thing as a 'Retard' because the word RETARD is, in fact, a verb, meaning 'to slow or stunt'.
Jerk #1: Hey, look, here comes the Retard Rocket! Here comes your bus, John!

John: Shut up! It's YOUR bus, noob!

Special Needs Rider: Actually, it's MY bus. I'd positively LOVE to stay and chat with you two LOVELY young gentlemen, but I'm afraid that I have AP Literature first period and I would just hate to be late for that, especially since we're doing an in-depth study of Snorri Sturluson's Eddas, both Poetic and Prose, and I am eternally enamoured of Norse Mythology. Although I must say, one of my favourites actually has to be Ragnarsdrápa, wouldn't you say? Well, I'd better go, or the aide will get angry. She's so testy! *to aide* Coming! *to jerks* Bye now!

*blank expressions*

Jerk #1: *Drools stupidly* Uhhhh...whaaatt?

Johnny: Uhhhm...Eye-Dee-Kay. Something about....Eddie?

Jerk #1: Isn't he, like, in our math class?

Japanese word for doll or stuffed toy, literally meaning, 'sew-and-wrap.' Examples are Gloomy Bear, Ugly Dolls, Hello Kitty, Monster Dolls, Sugar Bunnies, Tokotoko. Despite some of their scary names they are all very cute. Nowadays, you can obtain many complex nuigurumi patterns on the internet and in catalogues, etc. Dekora-chans (sometimes spelled Decora-chan) usually wear them hanging on chains or ribbons from their clothing or perched on their hats. If you visit Harajuku you might see a few of them gracing girls' headwear, tied to wrists, or peeking out of purses.

Eiri-chan: "I just found the most kawaii nuigurumi at the store the other day!!!"
Rai-chan: "Sou desu ka! Let me see!"
Eiri-chan: "Here, look. His name is Loki!!"
Rai-chan: "Aah, soooo kawaii!!!" ^^

2.
Reiku-kun: "My little sister lost her nuigurumi this morning at the square and now we can't get her to smile."
Raiji-kun: "My mom makes those. She can make her a new one. I can get it for you."
Reiku-kun: "Would you? She'll be so sad otherwise."

::later::

Reiku-kun: "Tadaima! I'm home! 'Mouto-chan, look what I brought you!"
Yomi-chan: "Nuigurumi!! Aah, kawaii desu ne! Isn't she cute?? Thank you, 'nii-chan!" <3
Reiku-kun: "I just knew you'd like it!"

Person With a Developmental "Dis"-ability With Attitude!
Such a person has a DD, and ain't afraid to show it!

A PWDDWA is a self advocate, and KICKS BUTT, more butt than any "typically"-abled person (PWOD), as they crusade for the right to do everything you 'normals' do and to be accepted for it.

PWDDWAs don't hold themselves back and aren't afraid to get married --even to, *gasp*, NORMAL people-- to drink alcohol if they please, rear children, and listen to metal music. A PWDDWA practices self-determination and makes as their own lifestyle choices, not limiting themself. A PWDDWA stick up for their DD family when someone starts "retard-bashing" and downtalking PWDDs. And YES, a heckuvalottta PWDDWAs ride SHORTBUSES!! And are PROUD of it!

PWDDWAs are not afraid to be just who they are and like it that way--so the 'normal' world can just DEAL WITH IT!
"So yeah, we're different.
So what?
We still have right to do the same things you do; we'll just do them differently."

I'm proud to be a PWDDWA!

An extremely powerful yet little-known film by British filmmaker Mike Leigh, starring David Thewlis as the angry, misogynistic main character Johnny. Running from his past, Johnny in the course of the film manages to track down an old ex girlfriend, get hooked on drugs, and end up living on the streets- all whilst maintaining a powerfully sharp wit, stemming from the brilliant mind of Actor/Author David Thewlis.
P1: "You know who David Thewlis is?"
P2: "Didn't he win a Cannes film award for his role in Mike Leigh's Naked?"
P1: "That is correct."
P2: "Man, that film was so brutally raw, man."
P1: "I know. Affecting, for sure."
P2: "Oh, definitely. Thewlis is such an excellent actor."
P1: "Did you know he also wrote his own lines in that one?"
P2: "Really? Wow. Man, Mike Leigh would be such an amazing director to work with."
P1: "Defo. Too bad they're both so underrated, man."
