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.


Speak, I Say

From Hog On Ice: I Grow Unfair, I Grow Unfair

He's all pouty now because I canned his link and refused to let him speak TRUTH to POWER!
God, how I hate that expression. You can't "speak to power." Power isn't a person. It can't hear. Speaking to power is like speaking to entropy or size or any number of nouns that represent abstract concepts which have no consciousness and no location.
He didn't actually say "speak truth to power." I'm just drifting here.
Some people speak truth to power. I speak flatulence to width. I speak menopause to arbitrage. Top that, pretentious pinheads who screw up the English language.

(What the web needs now is a "speak this to that" generator ;-)
