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.

 

Accomplishments

Things are finally starting to come together. Thursday we got internet. Yesterday we got cable, and the tv was delivered. The MO is now a much happier man (sooo many more channels than at the hotel ;-) I was able to get online and do some work and boy did that feel good. Today we're planning a mad furniture hunt to take advantage of the Chinese New Year sales, and hopefully get some stuff before everything shuts down for the holiday.

Houston, we have Cable.

 


I've been getting to know the washing machine and I have to say that so far I hate it with the burning hate of a thousand hating haters. It doesn't like me much, either. Srsly, folks, an hour and a half to wash the tiniest little load of laundry you ever did see? And then two hours to attempt to dry it? Which only works if you take out most of the wet clothes before you start? This side of the world may have niftier electronics (our tv is Hot) but they don't know squat about washing machines.
