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.


DDD Progress

I have tentative playlists for my Dual Disc Debacle cds. I'm doing an Abecedarium, with some license because I figure Magpies aren't too persnickety about their alphabets and because 26 songs isn't enough to fill up two cds. Test discs are burned for the MO to try out in the car tomorrow. I expect a ... moderate ... reaction because I know that he really hates some of my music, but it's quite a mixed bag (I defy you to put together a single-genre abecedarium (by artist, not by song) from your existing collection) so I think there's something for everyone, even a headbanger like him ;-) and while there are a couple of rough transitions, as a whole I think it works.

The next task is the artwork. Yippee!!
