Not To Be Trusted With Knives

{April 19, 2006}   Fucksocks, Sarah & Dave Rock!

Sarah and Dave have left the province =( They are sadly missed.

We had a wicked good time while they were here, as Sarah & Dave TOTALLY ROCK!! If you ever have the opportunity to hang out with Sarah and/or Dave, I highly recommend that you do! They are two of the nicest, most generous and most fun (and hilarious) people ever and I really wished they lived closer to me!

As previously mentioned, you can read all about our adventures over at Dave’s blog. All I have to say about the matter is that I want to have Brendan Morrison’s babies. And Anson Carter’s. But not the Sedin twins — that’s just crazy talk.

Also, I got a pleasant surprize this morning when I checked my mailbox at school. I received a letter saying the following:

Dear Beth,

Congratulations! I am very pleased to formally announce that you won a 2005/2006 UBC Graduate Teaching Assistant Teaching Award. With over 2000 teaching assistants at UBC, winning such an honour amoung your peers is a remarkable achievement.

And it goes on to talk about how wonderful I am. I actually co-won the award (presumably with a TA from Forestry, as my Faculty and the Faculty of Forestry are both very small Faculties and usually share the award), but my Faculty is topping me up to the full value of the award. So yay!!
