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.

 

Bad Logo

I received an advertising email sporting this logo:.

Now, who thought that was a good look? It looks like they didn't have quite enough room on the page, so they smooshed it a little. If all the words were jumbled, maybe it would fly, but as it is, it seems like a mistake. And if you have to jumble up that middle word, why not jumble all the letters? What's the matter, O and U are just too straight-laced to jump up and down with their friends? And while I'm at it, I don't like that conjoined OO in the last word, either. "Infinity" is not a good connotation for a consulting firm or project. (This is going to last/cost/suck how much? Infinity. Right....) Bleah. The whole thing is horrible.
