Blast from the past: I’ve had great students

Carol came by for dinner tonight.

dp.lab.apr.2005She’s only been living in Australia for 9 years, Amy and I met her in Paris in 2007, and she worked in my lab in 2001.

She’s the one in the pink top, on the left.

Carol from Ireland has worked for all kinds of food companies, still remembers my dictates about check your damn e-mail, but couldn’t figure out how to e-mail me.

Regardless, it was great catching up, and she’s now experienced enough to have some of that shared cynicism.

She even said she learned a few things from me.

I don’t miss being a prof, but I do miss guiding students.

So I coach hockey.
