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.


KTRU Rocks, as usual

08:32 AM- crack: we are rock / cold as ice [silent fantasy] on the tigerbeat 6, 2003 label.
08:28 AM- de novo dahl / be your man [cats and kittens] on the theory 8 label.
08:24 AM- fiery furnaces, the / i'm leaving [sunday nights: the songs of junior kimbrough] on the fat possum label.

Ok. This was what I heard on the way to work this morning. The Fiery Furnaces things was weird funky blues with a disco whistle. De Novo Dahl is the band that Jet wishes they were. And the Crack cover of Foreigner's Cold as Ice has to be heard to be believed. I want all these records.
