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.


"Billy the Kid was NOT gay!"

Best quote from tonight's episode of Sheer Dallas....

We watched this show last week out of Sheer Curiosity and it is actually quite good, despite the bizarre promos. The two main characters (guys) are hairdressers, one straight and one gay, and each week they also weave in two or three other people's stories. I expected it to be very much a "look at these stooopid big-haired wanna-be-cowboy Texans" but they manage to portray even the Miss Dallas County contestant (last week) with some dignity.

The show is big on camp and silly situations and there are lots of laugh-out-loud lines and basically the stories are of the "feel good" variety so the whole thing is light-hearted and fun. So far, I love it.
