Her co-workers found her not very far from very cheap and frugal when it came to her day to day business. For example did she always buy one piece of microwave food plate at the beginning of her week at work, sliced it up in 5 pieces. Like that she managed to save plenty of money although others shaked their heads in disbelief.
Now when she had a house you would think that she would relax a little bit, but she did not. Instead she made sure she drank 2 sets of energy-boosts (at least) of her own brew each morning to be at her sharprest.
She found a new unexpected pleasure in using the micro-microscope at the lab. At times she could actually get some really satisfactory prints out from them. Delilah knew that it was not OK to bring the prints home. But she reasoned that with all the grants she did bring in to the lab with her genious mind she kind of had earned it.
One morning when she was tinkering with the coffee machine to make it the perfect cup of coffee with longest lasting effect she was hit with a stroke of genious and she was very giddy all through the work day until she could go home and test her theory out.
Recently she had had some thoughts on upgrading her personal sim-ray (That she named Ray-månd). In theory it should not only be possible to freeze things right? If she could get the molecules to move slower, she should also be able to get molecules to rearrange themselves, right?
-Eureka! Water cooling! Of course! That would do it for sure!!!!!
