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.


Public Service Announcement

The MO is gathering up some music to share with a young co-worker who actually has a clue, and one of the offerings is Basehead's Play with Toys. This is one of my all-time favorite thank-you-for-telling-me-about-this records. (Aside from Morphine, to which I lay full and undisputed claim (thank you, Michelle), the MO has all the cool music. It pains me to admit that.)

Someday he should put together a list of Necessary Tunes. We would have some overlap, mostly stuff that he's introduced me to that I now consider essential listening, but then his would veer off to metal-land and mine would go more ... I dunno, singer-y? Plus Billy Squier, of course. Hm. Might be a fun comparison :-)

Anyhow, here's a link to the Basehead record, just in case your musical education is as lacking as mine was.
