Cookies, as well as cake, will be provided upon completion of the test--I mean seminar.
The lecturer actually looks petrified.
Today I went to the aperitif after a friend's Ph.D. defense and got food without actually going to the Ph.D. defense. I am a ninja. And not a very good friend. (I did proofread her thesis, though, so I knew approximately how much of the presentation I'd understand.)
The cake is a Lie group!
That was so naughty that words fail me...
Ok, you had the excuse of having proofread her dissertation.
And you didn't go to the formal dinner...
In general the principle in these parts is: no pain (of sitting thru the defence), no cake.
But you have to understand, I had something very important to do during her defense; I was invited to go out for kebab instead of eating in the canteen! And I had to make some slides.
Also, she didn't invite me to either the defense or the aperitif (she was trying to keep it a secret for some reason) so I figured it would be more polite to only gatecrash/show up to offer unexpected support once. She thanked me for coming and gave me extra food to go... oh man, I just remembered there is still a mandarin in my jacket pocket. Bonus!
I think I deserve extra cake for all the times I've listened to Science Groove's album, 'My Dissertation', anyway.
ah, yes! a classic story of singletons and simpletons
The Archimedians in Cambridge drew in their audience with pizza!
I like how the detail of the characters reflects how many people are looking at them.
I think there may be a bit of a correlation here.
Do remember that correlation does not imply a causal connection :-)
We used to have a motto at Campus Ministry: "If you feed them, they will come."
meetings at my office are way to boring without the eatings
This is so very, very true.
Furry cows moo and decompress.
