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.


What I Know about Basketball

You could easily write everything I know about basketball on a post-it note. So of course I set up a bracket when invited by the intrepid Fiberglass Badger to join the Collegiate Metal group on the ESPN site. I picked based on whether or not the school was UF and how much I liked the name, thus Gonzaga will lose by a mere two points to Florida in the championship game.

I have been informed that this was a very silly way to pick my teams, and all I have to say to that is
Go Gators!

(I found Lettering Delights today and for a dollar, I could not resist the funny gator alphabet. You have to use their proprietary browser hickey to access the stuff you download, but you can copy it out from there to other programs, so I guess it's not too restrictive. Kind of a pain in the butt, but they have some realllly cute stuff, and pretty much everything is only $1 this month.)
