Fun with numbers

The Munchkin is, at this moment, 1 year, 1month, 1 day, 1 hour, and 1 minute old. The next cool numerical birthday will be June 20, 2008 2:40am, followed by May 23, 2011 12:41am and March 30, 2020 10:47am. Yes, we do celebrate Pi Day at our house. Why do you ask?

Nerds! ;-)

Does my running around yelling "Happy Pi Day" while you say "What are you talking about?" really constitute a celebration?

Dan held forth

You should also begin to celebrate Jedi Day, beginning in 5/4/2009.


Why Jedi Day?

"May the Fourth be with you"

What kind of pie do you eat on pi day? At the middle school, the kids bring in different kinds of pie. Also, do you have a pi plate? The first time I saw one was at an LBIS "cajun pirate gift exchange" party, where it was the most coveted item. Then I started seeing it in the Signals catalog.

In David Sedaris' new book, he's talking about art and "crafts" and he mentions "my mother's kitchen witch." I was floored. This is not a term I'm familiar with, so I looked it up. I'm guessing that the kitchen witch he refers to looks something like this one:http://fantes.com/images/23558fun_kitchen_stuff.jpg
