March 14th -- 3.14 -- Pi Day!!!!! I'm totally unashamed to admit that I was kinda' a math nerd back in the day. My calculus teacher in high school didn't believe me when I told her that I was going to study interior design in college. She had no idea that underneath the mathematical, order-loving crust of my persona was an artist who had been patiently waiting for her day in the sun. I still love math. I really, truly do. Here are some fascinating facts about Pi:
Just ignore that it contradicts itself by saying Pi has been computed to over a trillion digits, but there are only 6.4 billion known digits. Whatever. The rest is really interesting. At least I think so. My family? Not so interested in Pi. But they do love PIE so today we celebrate!
Who am I kidding?! I'm a bigger fan of PIE than Pi myself. I've had a Marie Callender's Chocolate Satin pie instead of cake for my birthday every year for most of my adult life. It's my very most favorite decadent treat.
