Tripping

Seriously, has it been a year already, since last winter?
.

I heard Leona Lewis on the radio last night and it brought me instantly back to the pharmacology lab in the SIPBS building. It reminded me of the radio, nay, the songs we used to listen to in the lab. It brought flashes of us; the Glaswegians and Malaysians alike peeking out the lab window at the first snow of the season. Hot soup for lunch, and sandwiches. Ricardo gulping espresso. Nicole singing crazily. Fiona laughing at Nicole. Jin Werne made an almost Freudian slip at Trevor. Trevor being the scary giant. Tony dropping candies into our lab pockets the last day before Christmas break. Andy opening the fridge. Luke, with his guinea pig ileum dangling form his forceps. Mimi and her camera. Stuart, his mysterious lanky figure at the back. Loni and her shy smiles. Lisa and her confident strides.
.
.
And the songs never stop playing. They'd play Christmas songs. They'd play Take That, of course, and that Morrisons jingle. And that JCB song. And of course, there's Bleeding Love.
.

Good memories. They make me smile.
