Not To Be Trusted With Knives

The Internet’s leading authority on radicalized geese

About Beth

Beth is a freelance scientist, educator, artist, model and social engineer. You’ve been warned.

Beth started blogging back in July 2005, with the sole purpose of procrastinating on the writing of her thesis1. From there, her blog grew to encompass things beyond merely complaining about how she was procrastinating on the writing of her thesis. Things that other people might want to read about. Like the Vancouver Canucks and funny things she found on the Internet while procrastinating. And tales of shoes she bought on eBay.

Other things of interest:

Today her blog has a readership well into the double digits2.

1Despite her valiant procrastination efforts, she did eventually finish her thesis.
2This joke is stolen from this guy. She heard it at a talk he gave one time and it totally stuck with her.
3You know you do. Admit it.

    Dude! This is the first blog I’ve seen with footnotes.

    Model AND scientist? Promise not to build some sort of nuclear hovercraft and take over the world, OK?

    Just followed a link to your blog from a comment you left on another one (TheblogaccordingtoBuzz, I think?). Had to laugh at your commentaries on UBC’s PhD gowns and parchments and frames from the bookstore! I defended my PhD five years ago; my framed diploma is tucked away somewhere in storage in Vancouver, possibly to never again see the light of day. And being so close to the anniversary of my defence (infamous in my department as the second-scariest defence in its history), I’ve recently had nightmares about it. Oy! So, long story short, I loved reading your recollections – although I won’t be surprised if another UBC nightmare haunts me tonight.

  3. Beth says:

    Oh no! I’m sorry if I’ve given you defense-related nightmares! What department were you in?

    I managed a couple of lingering test-taking dreams, but nothing defence-related 🙂

    I was in RMES.
