It's almost Pi Day (3/14) and it's time to par-tay!
When my boys attended the private school school gifted children, Pi Day was da bomb, truly a cause for celebration. Alas, at public school it's just another excuse for shoving the nerds in their lockers.
No matter, this year Pi Day falls on a weekend. I asked my Twitter peeps for celebration tips and here's what they told me.
Amy from Selfish Mom suggests making a pie and having your family calculate the circumference (for those who have been out of school for too long, it's Pi x Diameter).
Luann from Training For Fun knows how to get her geek on; she is a rocket scientist! She suggests a contest to see who has the most digits of Pi memorized. (Or maybe she was issuing me a personal challenge?)
ThinkGeek says break out the Einstein wigs! Which, oddly they don't sell. They do have other totally cool Pi Day items; click for deets.
Christine from Boston Mamas thinks maybe Pi cookies are the way to go.
And Rachel from Hounds in the Kitchen is, not surprisingly, rockin' it old skool and is going full throttle not just posting a pie recipe, but hosting a Pi Day blog carnival, so others can share their celebratory recipes, too.
