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.


Tonight on TV

The History Channel is currently airing a show (okay, old news, but hey) about navy ghost fleets (yes, plural, and I didn't even know there was one) and, among other things, about how the Navy is recycling steel from the WTC buildings into a new Navy ship, appropriately named the New York. The WTC steel has been cast into the very prow of the ship, which seems to me the best possible use of that particular metal. Having finally watched Team America, the MO and I simultaneously raised our glasses to the fine men at Amite shipyards and shouted, "America, FUCK YEAH!"

(If you haven't seen it yet, run, do not walk, to your nearest video source. Drink any liquids quickly and in small quantities, otherwise you will have a messy living room due to explosive laughing.)
