A happy coincidence

So I was at the station booking tickets to go to my not-so-little sister's birthday party next weekend. And I happened to glance at the next window and who should be there but AM! She being a good friend of mine from roleplaying, but she has been post-docing in Austria since October and I'd been too busy to keep in touch with her properly. Turns out she'd been in Dundee all week seeing RP friends, but since I've been such a hermit recently I'm rather out of the DURPS loop.

Anyway she had an hour to wait for a train, so we went out for tea and catchup. She was gratifyingly impressed and congratulatory about the famous submission, and told me about all the cool stuff she's been up to with RNA in Austria, and we're going to renew contact properly, and generally yay. She's very happy in Austria and her fiancé is apparently enjoying being a househusband.

And I have done some actual lab work, which is a nice change after months of just writing up. Right now I have a PCR to attend to, so I'm off to deal with that.
