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.


Surreal Phone Call of the Day

We are short-staffed this week so I get to answer all the phone calls at work. 99.9% of them are AT&T and the others are wrong numbers. This one was particularly amusing.


Confused Guy: Do y'all do watch repairs?

Me: No, we're a software company.

CG: Man, I don't know what is up with Yahoo. The first number they gave me was for a flooring company, and now you guys.

Me: .... Wow.

CG: Well, I've got another number. Third time's a charm, right?

Me: Good luck with that.


My very own Not Always Right episode ;-)
