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.

 

A Fashion First

Dear Internet,

Last night, I received three compliments from non-friend women (ie, unsolicited, unexpected, unbiased) on my outfit.

Me. Compliments. On my clothing. If the world has spun off its axis, it's my fault. I suspect I owe it all to the heels. You can't tell from this picture, but those are three-inch heels. I was crippled until at least noon today, but it was so worth it.

Yippee, New Clothes!

Let's hear it for the lovely clerks at White House/Black Market in the Village. You rock!

I am still in shock. And the MO is going to explode if I talk about it any more. So that's where you come in, dear Internet. Always there, ready to receive the minutiae of all our little lives. Unable to protest or turn away.... (Although it's taking an abnormally long time to load the photo to flickr. Hmmm.....)

Anyhow, thanks for listening,
Darcy
