For those sane people who don't know, March 14th is pi day, because if you write March 14th the American way, it's 3.14, yes? Actually, the first five digits of pi are 3.1415, which made this year a bit special. In fact 9:26:53am was super special because pi is 3.141592653 (and the rest). It's tradicional to eat pie on pi day, which is probably why the idea caugh on. I mean, how much of an excuse do you need? But as usual I was too busy to muck around rolling out pastry, so we had shepherd's pi.
