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.



  • FarScape-o-mania: We've watched six (or seven?) eight FS episodes in the last few days. Finished up season two (most of which I hadn't seen) and had to squeeze in the first episode of season three since the season two finale was a To Be Continued.... This has been fun, catching up on the backstories, and especially nostalgic for me since the very first episode I ever saw was the third one of the three-part series that led up to the season two finale.

  • New Shoes: I actually went shoe shopping. And bought something. Two cute new pairs o' peds--pink sandals and brown mules. I am a sucker for mules, even though they're stupidly impractical.

  • Bad Dream: Last night I dreamed I was still working at That Big Six Consulting Firm and experiencing the project kick-off from hell. I was late to a meeting, got called for looking "less than enthusiastic" during said meeting, executed a CLM by making an unpopular (with the Firm) suggestion, etc. Ugh. I woke with all my muscles clenched and my neck is still sore. It was worse than a "OMG, I slept through my final" dream. After all, I've missed finals for real. I can handle those dreams!
