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.


An Example of AM Autopilot

I've proved to myself that I'm not really awake for the first couple of hours that my eyes are open. One of my regular morning tasks is to scoop the catbox. I use those little brown lunch bags and toss them in the outside trashcan. This morning it was cold, so I figured I'd wait til I was ready to leave to throw it away so I wouldn't have to go outside twice. While I did manage to remember to pick up the bag on the way out the door (I've left more than one real lunch at home), apparently I forgot about it between the back stoop and the car, because when I parked in the garage at work and reached over to pick up my purse, well, there it was. I'd just transported a bag of cat poop across downtown Houston.
