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.

BuyWord by Face 2 Face Games. The MO had finally reneged on so many games of Settlers that I proposed he buy me a new game to cancel the debt ;-)

So this afternoon we dropped by Nan's and picked out BuyWords, primarily because it wasn't very expensive ($25) and it has a solitaire varaint (big plus in my book). We're a little wary of word games because Quiddler is just so incredibly ridiculously insanely good that it's really hard to have patience for any other word game. But BuyWord has promise. The rules are very simple and the strategy is pretty easy to figure out (make long words) but there is enough luck involved that so far we've ended up with fairly even games. I'm looking forward to playing with more people and trying some of the variants suggested in the rule book.
