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.


Mildred Dieselboy

Sometimes you're just wrong. In this particular case, I've admitted it several times. "I'm sorry, sweetie, you were right. That subwoofer was worth every penny." And I'm sincere. And he knows it. So tonight, after a shared entree at Ibiza and a bottle-an-a-half of good red wine, we used our technology to host our own private techno club in our living room, as we are wont to do now and then. I scored the Central Listening Station and floated off on the buzz and thump, thinking about my grandma. Which is kind of silly, because I sure can't imagine her listening to Dieselboy, but of course, she's on my mind a lot lately. Hang in there, grandma. >boom boom< There is still a lot I need to know. I want to hear your version of pushing the Singer out of a not-ground-floor window. [thump] Why did you never learn to drive? [thumpthumpthump] Tell me about grandpa when he was young. >boom< >boomboom< Is there a story behind that white chenille bedspread that, for me, defines your bedroom? Because maybe it's just some random thing you got on sale one time. [bzzbzz wheeao wheeaaaaao] But mostly Thank you, and I love you, and Don't go yet, okay? I'm not ready.
