I've been sitting here for hours, doing nothing but watch the clock, as the hands slowly moved toward midnight Pacific time. I was waiting for the start of the biggest event of the year, and now it has arrived. It's Pi Day! Yes, when it's 3.14 on the calendar, we math geeks come out to celebrate, and there will be a fleeting (infinitesimal, in fact) moment of happiness when the time reaches 15.926... hours past midnight (just before 4pm). We each observe this wonderful holiday in our local time zone, for the Grand Pi plays no favorites, despite being irrational. Unless you are deep in transcendental number meditation, you might enjoy these pi-ish diversions: Enjoy prose about pi within 22/7 circles! Read poems with word lengths matching the digits of pi! Splash on some Pi cologne for men! Listen to "Pi" ([playlistId=159504308&s=143441&i=159504348]iTunes link[/playlistId]), a song by Kate Bush with incorrect pi-based lyrics! Or is there actually a hidden meaning? For those of you in the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrate Pi Day at the Exploratorium! Maybe you'll get some pi-zza! And if you just want to sit back and enjoy the fun, I'm pretty sure that this chair I spotted at Staples has a pi symbol on the backrest!
