Today’s episode has some bad news, some good news and a bit of the power of vox in it.
The Bad News: I was in my office discussing some interesting results with one of the chemists on one of our programs, when klutzy me knocked my empty coffee cup off my desk and broke it cleanly in two. I was bummed because I had gotten this mug in New Mexico and was pretty sentimental for it.

The Good News: Later, I was bemoaning my broken coffee cup to one of my co-workers and she scooted out of my office and quickly re-appeared with something hidden behind her back – saying that she knew my birthday was next month, but since this was a coffee-cup crisis she was prepared to act now.
