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.


Signs a Man Really Loves You, #12

If you receive a random IM asking this:

[14:10] MO: what size ring do you wear?

and after you respond the conversation goes like this:

[14:11] MO: carry on
[14:11] Me: whywhywhywhywhy....
[14:11] Me: ?????
[14:12] MO: because a pistol should not be your only birthday present and I found something badass

and then it turns out he knows you well enough to realize that you would agree that this is totally badass and he can't actually wait til your birthday so you get to wear it right away....

Thank You Swarovski

[Go Swarovski!]

Well! Then you know your man really loves you.

Of course, the fact that you already have a new pistol waiting for you is the real tip-off.... The wearable bling is the icing on the cake ;-)

[Meet Tim Gunn. Yes, I've seen it. I've even fondled it. But no shooting til The Official Day....]

I think forty-one is going to be a seriously pretty shiny year!
