When the Moon Hits Your Eye

So, what are you doing for Pi day?

I've been waiting nearly a year for this. Last year I heard about it, two days after it had passed. Pi day, celebrated mainly by uuber geeks and math classes, is on March 14 (3.14). A day to enjoy that mysterious mathematical magic that is Pi.

What we're doing:

Eating Pizza Pi(e)
Dessert: Peach Pi(e)
Making ourselves Pi t-shirts with a homemade stencil or iron on (I haven't decided yet)
decorating the house with circles and equations
maybe we'll go on a Pi hunt - looking for circles

you know, all the normal stuff any everyday family would do, when they're totally geeking out. Heh.

Do you celebrate Pi? Come on, it's fun!

My celebration is coincidental, I'm composing sketches for a circular painting composition. It's like running over a bunny on the same day protestants celebrate Easter.

Purely coincidentally, Fiona has a date with her grandmother to make chocolate cream pie. (She wanted to do it today.)

So, consider me celebrating when I have a big ole slice.

My wife and 3.14 kids already look at me like I'm a weirdo. I guess I have nothing to lose with Pi day. ;-)

I've not heard of that one before your post but I am in favor of any new holiday. I don't know if I qualify as a geek or not but my wife bought me a geek coffee mug on our last visit to the Microsoft store. I like it a lot.

Our daughter participates every year in the pi bee at school. She knows 150 digits of pi and she only came in 3rd! :)

We are having cherry pie for dessert tonight!

I wish I had known about that. My hubby would have loved it.
