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.


I Have Become My Work

Talking to a customer this morning, he told me about an IT meeting he had been in where several of the attendees were unfamiliar with the technical details of the project he is implementing. (My product is a tool that he is using on his project.) He and the others that I have contact with kept saying things like, "Okay, we'll have Darcy do that," and finally one of the other folks asks, "What is this DARCY system that is doing all this stuff?" leading to comments about HAL and whatnot... So I'm not just a programmer any more, I'm a whole system!!

[Hm. I noticed I don't have a Work category. Mostly I guess my work isn't bloggable....]
