about this blog
Why chai at six? Because growing up, my family and I would have chai every evening. Those moments of my youth are among my most favorite memories.

Who am I? A twentysomething working fulltime in Knoxville, Tenn.

    chai at six
    A man in Oak Ridge has been writing on his blog, AtomicTumor.com, of his wife being hospitalized due to an unknown illness. Unfortunately, she died last week. His account of the experience is so intimate and so tragic and honest and very sad.

    You need to read it.

    Go watch it. Everyone needs to watch it. I watched it last night at a sneak and felt I could only exhale once the credits rolled.

    I hope this movie garners lots of Academy Awards.

    We're back in the U.S. I'm tired and need to unpack my bags, but I'm happy to sleep in my own bed. I think that's the biggest thing I missed.

    I'm at Panera right now using the WIFI since I can't get Internet in my apartment.

    I'm perusing blogs while editing captions for our Mexico photo gallery and read on several blogs that NBC execs may cease 'Studio 60.'

    That would be a great shame. I'm really enjoying the show and love the smart cultural and current affairs references. So, if you're a fan of Studio 60, please join the petition to save smart TV. We don't need the broadcasts to be feeding us crack (a la reality TV that is cheap to produce). Visit http://www.savestudio60.com/.

    Thanks.

    Kent, Sonny and I are in the last leg of our Mexico trip and are staying at a luxurious hotel in Talequepaque, which I think is considered suburban Guadalajara. It's a pretty ritzy neighborhood and we had a real nice dinner last night at a place called Rosa Morada.

    The hotel has laptops we can use and cable TV; we're getting CNN and VH1. This is why I'm surfing the web and not just checking my bank balance. It's been good not to be aware of what's going on in the world or being a blog junkie.

    The trip has been really cool and the Mexican folk are very nice. We've only had one bad experience with a taxi driver yesterday trying to inflate the cab fare.

    Yelapa so far has been most enjoyable. It was so peaceful and so quiet and there weren't many tourists. Plus, I got to swim a lot in the ocean and go parasailing. Kent sent a picture of the view from our balcony in Yelapa to coworkers and made them jealous :) Old Guadalajara was beautiful. Puerto Vallarta was too touristy. I can imagine it being like Disneyland/Disneyworld in Florida. Plus, we saw Walmart.

    We're hoping to shop around for trinkets today in Tonala and Tlaquepaque.

    The vacation has been great and aside from some sunburnt shoulders (yes -- happened to an Indian also!) and mangling the Spanish language (Pardon) it's been a very successful trip.

    We return to the U.S. tomorrow. Hasta luega!
