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.

 

International Cats

Here is a muvee I put together to celebrate the arrival of Lorax and Melvin to Singapore.



International Cats from Darcy C on Vimeo.



WARNING: This is ALL CATS  and NOTHING BUT CATS. If you don't already know and love our cats, you are probably COMPLETELY UNINTERESTED in the following video. (Although the song is Very Good, so you might want to give it a listen anyhow. Just close your eyes if it's too much catness.)


The music (ever so appropriate, don't you think?) is from Hôtel Costes: Quatre by French house DJ Stéphane Pompougnac. They were playing this at OChre the night we spent several hours and bottles of wine there. I shazam-ed this song and bought the record the next day. The whole album is awesome, and it comes with each track individually and a full-length single track (over an hour long). (At least if you buy it from iTunes it comes that way.) Now that I know there are a bunch of these.... Could be dangerous.
