Ivan, Thomas, Cheng Puay and I joined Adrian at RICE 2008. I met a few of Adrian’s kakis whom he had told me about as well as his entire biology team; a very nice bunch.
Meanwhile the Toddycats had setup a booth to capture the lunch time crowd.
The Biology Refugia trio of Cheng Puay, Adrian and I had a mini-seminar session in which CP finished in ten minutes (!!!) and Adrian reached new heights in digressions, incorporating a dream and a mer-dog. His colleagues say this is apparently a common occurrence. Many of the audience were familiar faces they went with the flow.
A very nice thing was Cheng Puay bumping into his former students so there were cheery voices wherever we went as they looked up their ‘old’ teacher.
We were hungry for more so we lads had out own debrief after. I thin we could have just have had our own symposium like we did last year at the Macaddict’s Biology Symposium. Trouble is, no one would have written an abstract!
