Pie and Pushing Daisies

Today is national pi(e) day!

March 14 is 3.14 on the calendar, which is the first 3 digits of Pi, and it deserves celebration.

The best way to celebrate it, of course, is through the gluttonous consumption of pie. But, if you can’t do pie, any circular shape food will suffice, as pi is the circumference of a circle divided by its diameter.

If this kind of math excites you, just wait until next year – we’ll have even more pi.

March 14, 2015 (3/14/15) at 9:26 a.m. and 53 seconds and 58 milliseconds (if your watch counts that precisely) will give us 3.14159265358, a full 10 digits of pi.

While I was originally going to post a review on Conan Doyle’s The Sign of the Four today, that will have to wait, as there are more interesting things going on at the present than what I finished listening to at work. I’ll post about that some other time, to satisfy those who were curious.

Anyways . . .

Tonight, my husband picked up some yummy pizza pie (a little redundant of a name, I know) for dinner. Check it out – it doesn’t look pretty, but trust me it was delicious.


Typically we get chicken, bell peppers, and olives when we order take out pizza, but tonight was kind of a spur of the moment event and this is what we found.

And of course, the actual pie! He bought this from the grocery store near the pizza place.

Oh gosh – so gooey and flaky and golden and perfect.

And, we watched Pushing Daisies: Season 1 while stuffing ourselves with glorious amounts of pie.

Why Pushing Daisies, you ask?

Because this delightfully colorful TV show is about a pie maker, and he makes such amazingly perfect pies that you can’t help but crave more pie every time you watch the show. What better way to celebrate national Pi day than with pizza pie, apple pie, pi, and pie makers?

There is none. NONE, I tell you.

But, I guess if you did happen to celebrate it differently,
what did you do for this fantastic holiday?
