Prepare to enter the wild and wooly world of an adult with Aspergers Syndrome, a form of autism characterized by intellignce, quirks, social difficulties and downright strange and oddish behaviours.

People with Aspergers generally are high functioning in everyday life but have great difficulty connecting with others due to the inability to read faces, body language and subtle verbal clues. They also tend to take words literally and have a hard time multi-tasking.

Oversensitivity to touch (clothing has to be soft and often the tags removed), light (do not leave home without the sunglasses), sound (loud noises and noisey places are avoided), taste (many Aspies have quite a limited diet and are frequently very picky eaters) and smells makes the everyday existence more of a challenge.

Fasten your seatbelts and come on in...

Voodoo Donuts Tres in Eugene, OR

Ah, I should have taken more photos of the interior for my first visit here. I guess I'll have to go back! It's a small store that is packed with fun, creative memorabilia. There's the large black sasquatch, the pedal bike with delivery box, cool posters and wall hangings, stacks of the fabulous Voodo Donut pink boxes and of course, a few dozen varieties of donuts.
My son and his teen friend loved the three vintage video games and stole all my quarters. It's a fun place simply to look at the eclectic collection!
Being gluten free, I wasn't able to sample anything but my son thoroughly enjoyed his pink with sprinkles and purple sugared donuts. My son's friend was a little less impressed with his bubblegum, marshmallow pink frosted with a genuine piece of bubblegum candy on top.
I saw donuts sprinkled with fruit loops and Cap'n Crunch, shaped like voodoo dolls and keys, filled with various jellies and frosting along with the good old fried donut with chocolate frosting.
It Is a fun experience!!! I want to go again!!!
