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 Did I Just Read?

In an article in today's Chronicle, I find this sentence:

In the classic play Pygmalion, the importance of an accent is proved when character Henry Higgins alters Eliza Doolittle's speaking style and changes her life.

Wow. I have to admit a gap in my cinematic education regarding Henry Higgins and Eliza Doolittle (yes, I know Joe and Marianne are just dying inside right now ;-) but I do know that they weren't named by the ancient Romans. (I'm sorry. 1910 is not "classic" when the original story goes back this far.)
