Thanks Henley, and everyone. That was the very last letter I got from him, his last words to me, in a way. "Take it to them guy. Don't let them wear you down. We love you and are proud of you." I can't think of anything better or more appropriate.

After this morning's little episode, I am wondering what day it will be tomorrow when we all wake up. Watching Wesli's fav show: Firefly.

I just realized I have had time for only 2 teas today: a 2006 autumnal darjeeling and an oolong. Dragged out the stuff to make matcha but remained unmatchified; and my poor adorable shincha just sitting there looking at me with puppy eyes!

It's time for the hard choices around here:
    1) get on a more rigorous TeaSchedule,
    2) hire a personal TeaTrainer, or
    3) advertise for assistants willing consume as my TeaProxies.

OK, I'll be your Teaproxy.

Double X-chromosomes... check.
Loves tea... check.

That's all you need... right? :wink:

I am definitely not male, so as long as you have nothing against blonds, I'd be willing to be a Teaproxy.

I am finishing up my day with some iced Peach Oolong. At first, I wasn't overly impressed with this tea's flavor when I made it as hot tea, but it tastes really nice when it is cold.

Wow, Space, what a great story. Thanks so much for sharing. I've been OD'ing lately on John Legend's "Coming Home" and this fits right in. My husband's getting ready to retire after 23 years in, so I guess I'm feeling a little nostalgic about these things!

Leave it to a Mom to be so perceptive! :wink: 4 year old came in at 2 or so and he and hubby started snoring in 8 part harmony (I swear it's possible). So I waved the white flag, came down for a cuppa chamomile and tried again at 4:30 in the ... guest room! :D

Let's just say hair color is not helping your application, though we do strive to be an equal opportunity fantasy.

Actually, I had you in mind when I created the position, but I doubt I could afford your rates. Your mutation toward the green has always been suspected in TeaChat. It's good to finally know the genetic details.

Tempting, but I worry about the potential for misunderstanding.
