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.


Nooooooooooo! It Won't Go Away!

In last night's dream-time episode of Consulting Gone Wrong, I learned that the traveling consultants were getting a $53 per diem to cover the costs of wearing out their shoes (what, were they walking to the client site instead of racking up frequent flyer miles?) and I was tasked with taking an out-of-town partner to dinner. He wanted fish. I said, great, I know several good places. He said, no, he'd only eat at the Hilton. I said the food there sucks. He didn't care. He wanted quick and convenient. I said, why don't we just get McDonald's? It'll be cheaper and taste better.

So I'm batting 1000 on CLMs in my consulting dreams. Great....
