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.


Stupid Phone Conversation of the Day

At a small company, phone answering duties tend to get spread around, so fairly often I end up answering the main line, and then transferring the caller to whoever they really want to talk to. This call, however, left me puzzled:

Me: "Company X"
Stupid Caller: "Person Y please"
Me: "That person is no longer with the company"
SC: "I'll call back in a few minutes" ::click::
Me: " "

So what does this guy think, we're going to go out and find Person Y and re-hire them before he calls back?
