It’s the last day of September today.  The month wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t devote some space to featuring another blog I enjoy reading.  This month’s featured blog is "Quemino’s World," the musings of a very nice and eclectic lady I met last year at the APEC Summit in Busan (check out the November 2005 archive for more details).  Quemino is my favorite blogger name–I always thought Quemino sounded like a cool brand name, perhaps a clothing line or an upscale establishment.  Nah, in reality, it’s her name transposed in such a way that it fits her personality.  She’s a deep thinker who offers acute observations about life and leads you on a meandering journey through her life in fits and starts (she stopped blogging for awhile but returned earlier this year).  She has been all over the world, from Korea to Thailand to her former hometown of Seattle (we are fellow Seattleites), to Washington, D.C., where she now resides.  We’ll probably cross paths again when I return to D.C. next year en route to Paraguay. 
 
Quemino will challenging your senses with some profound observations on an diverse variety of topics ranging from squashed pennies to Starbucks coffee.  She is a "hip chick" despite letting her blog languish from time to time (lately, I have no room to talk–it seems I take a week off every two weeks).  Her lists featured web sites, blogs, and books for just about anyone.  While she really wants to do what I do for a living, she undoubtedly has a brilliant job that takes her to exciting places.  After I post this, I plan to write her an e-mail to let her know I featured her blog and hope that she will post a few new entries for you in October.  I don’t think she has enough time to do it in September!
 
Blog Notes:  I survived an extremely busy week last week.  I’m just starting what will be a 10-day vacation at home with my parents in town (hooray!).  I will try to blog more in the coming weeks, especially if MSN features my blog again, as one editor hinted they may do.  That would be really cool!  I would be honored, as always.
