autistic arnold cunningham
  • the first time we see him is when hes trying to speak to someone abt mormonism at the door, but ends up yelling too loud and saying the wrong thing
  • admits he has a lot of trouble making and keeping friends 
  • can be blunt (’i lie a lot!’)
  • has a lot of trouble telling when kevin is uncomfortable with him
  • nooo sense of personal space
  • huge special interests in sci fi and fantasy!! its how he tries to relate to kevin, and compares their situation to lord of the rings, etc. and probably used his sermons to infodump which is how so much star wars/lord of the rings/etc got in there
  • relates more to fiction than the real world, and has to use concepts he learned in fiction to understand the real world (ie, associating africa with the lion king)
  • repeating phrases he hears from tv/movies/etc, even if they dont exactly fit (’if you order now we’ll also throw in a set of steak knives!’)
  • takes some things literally (kevin regarding an epiphany: ’i woke up!’ arnold: ‘of course you woke up, you drank 12 cups of coffee!’)

Hi, just a little sunday story: I always was fascinated about Africa. And 30 years ago I had the chance to go to West Africa for work. That was the most amazing time of my life. To see and live the real Africa, not tourist places, is something special and something you'll never forget. After 1 year living there, I decided to always go back during my holidays. I did that for 7 years. SA is different, but I think, that SC will enjoy their new home for the next few months. Fingers crossed.

That’s lovely! I’ve never been to Africa. That and Australia are the only two continents I have not visited and would love to go to both.

I know they are there to work, but I hope they all get to do some fun exploring as well.

Happy Africa Day! Let’s pray for REAL unity in Africa. I’m so proud to be African, God Bless you Mama Africa. 💚💛❤️
