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.


Wet People are Unmentionables

We had lunch today at one of those places that uses white butcher paper for tablecloths and leaves crayons on the table, and Lee was drawing Chinese characters and telling us what they meant. At one point, he drew a character that he said meant a person, and another that he said meant water. So I drew them next to each other and asked if that was a wet person. He laughed and said that, actually, I had just drawn "slut" and, after some giggling, we all agreed that, at some level, a slut was indeed a wet person....
