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.

Thank you, Danny!!!

My friend Danny loaned me the Karaoke Revolution xbox game

with assurances that it was at least as hilarious as Dance Dance, and OMG was he right. Andy and Louise came over for a sumptuous venison dinner (thank you John for the M.E.A.T and Mr. Man for the chef-ing) and after a few bottles of wine we were ready to tackle the karaoke game. Mind you, none of us has ever done this before. And I don't know about the others, but I have severe reservations about my singing ability. (Thus the wine.) But we ponied up, went through the training, and jumped right in. What a LAUGH RIOT this game is!! I honestly can't remember the last time I laughed so hard. The highlights of the evening both came with the male renditions of Donna Summers' Hot Stuff. Holy cow. Let's just say I'm going to be hearing "Hot hot hot stuuuu-uuufff" about three octave lower than intended for days now, and with Andy's alternative (not-safe-for-anybody-anywhere) lyrics.
