Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


Fishsticks of Doom

I'm sure I heard it wrong, but the angry punk song I heard on KTRU on the way home sounded an awful lot "fishsticks of hell.... fishsticks of doom...." which then segued into "I hate Se-aaaattle, I hate Se-aaaattle," all in an appropriately gargly kind of voice. It was appropriate for my mood, at any rate. Although I don't particularly have anything against Seattle.

---pause for a little online research---

No way. It really was Fishsticks of Doom!!! I can't believe it....
09:24 PM- rusted shut / dying up here / i hate seattle [s/t] on the fleece label.
09:22 PM- sad pygmy / fishsticks of doom [tomato halo] on the lazy squid label.

I have no idea if that link will continue to work. At any rate, KTRU comes up with a winner, as ever.
