When I use connect() to call a function, how can I send a argument to that function?

I am currently trying out the timer node to call a function, but at first glance it seems to be unable to activate a function that has an argument because I have to call the function by its name only.

func ready()
     timer = Timer.new()
     timer.connect("timeout", self, "activate")

func activate(arg)

How can I use connect() in a way that lets me send an argument (a String in this case) to the function it calls?

timer.connect("timeout", self, "activate", ["arg_value1", "arg_value2"])
