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.


Rita Update

The MO is your source for personal updates during Rita. He's going to "disaster-blog" as long as we have power and internet connectivity. For a list of local bloggers, see Laurence Simon's This Blog is Full of Crap. (And don't miss his explanation of hurricane categories!)

This morning we bagged art. I already packed my duffel bag with desperation essentials so now I am just following the MO's instructions. He is much more organized than I am. I am operating on a cup of coffee in one hand (those of you who know realize how odd that is) and a cream soda in the other. This way I can use either hand to swill sudafed as necessary to dry up the snot that is being generated in copious quantities by all the dust we're stirring up. I guess as soon as I have a beer, I'll have all the major food groups represented in my bloodstream.

In all seriousness, the MO is in charge and taking care of things.
