Doctor Sloth

Well, this week I was awarded my doctorate. It’s a very good feeling! I’ve spent the last 3 and a half years doing this and it’s finally finished.

I won’t graduate until next year, so the celebrations get pretty stretched out!

So this is one happy sloth :)fabsloth

Fangirling Sloth

Oooh mah Gawd… Met my science idol for the second time ever today. The first time I met her (at a conference last year), she was surrounded by a bunch of big-wigs, so I burst into the middle of the circle, said “Hi! Big fan! Read all your papers! Come look at my poster! Bye!”



BUT IT WAS WORTH IT. She DID come look at my poster. AND… today she says “Oh yes! I remember YOU!” WINNING. Anyway, actually got to have a proper sit down meeting with her today to discuss my work, which was great. #nerdlyf

One month since the best day evah

Sad day today. It’s been a month since the greatest day evah, the day I met sloths for the very first time. It was so very very amazing and I can’t wait til the day I get to be that close to a sloth again! Ahh nostalgia…slothdaywinning 2

Sloth Week

SLOTH WEEK was last week! (seriously, click the link, fantastic)

Sloths do most things upside down- eat, sleep, mate and give birth- and because of this, most of their internal organs are in a different position to other mammals.


A Sloth in Paris

Oh wow, it’s been so long since I posted :(

I’m sorry! After Paris, the wi-fi for the rest of the trip wasn’t that great, and then I got back and have been SO BUSY trying to catch up I just hadn’t got around to posting before now. Also I missed Sloth Week! Last week! Gah! Oh well. From now on I promise I’ll be more diligent in keeping you up to date.

Here’s a few more pics of Doza in Paris. This place was so old and lovely and just different from anything I’ve ever seen. I hope I get the chance to go back there one day. DozaParis DozaLouvreThe other amazing thing about Paris was the BAKED GOODS. So many chocolate croissants and baguettes and cakes and macarons and crepes and just everything was so AMAZING! I had pancakes for breakfast on Sunday and it just wasn’t the same…

This giant macaron was called a “macarola”.DozaMacarona
