HaPi Birthday David!

Pi Day is a special day in the lives of many-a-nerd (celebrated on March 14 at 3:14pm). Just like normal people celebrate Valentine's Day or National Pancake Day, nerds around the world will gather and join hands in the shape whose ratio of its circumference to its diameter is the most revered mathematical constant in the known universe.

It also happens to be my beloved husband and my niece-a-Lisa’s birthday.

DH is getting banana cream pie for his birthday instead of cake. Last night we took him out to dinner and afterwards went to Wal-Mart to pick up some pie treats. We ended up getting Lil’ Debbie marshmallow pies (a.k.a. moon pies) to give to the students in his class. As it happens they are currently studying the phases of the moon in class, so the moon pies serve as a treat for both events.

Nerds are welcome to join me in a circle as we sing those popular Pi carols:

Oh Number PI

Oh, number Pi
Oh, number Pi
Your digits are unending,

Oh, number Pi
Oh, number Pi
No pattern are you sending.
You're three point one four one five nine,
And even more if we had time,
Oh, number Pi
Oh, number Pi
For circle lengths unbending.

Oh, number Pi
Oh, number Pi
You are a number very sweet,
Oh, number Pi
Oh, number Pi
Your uses are so very neat.
There's 2 Pi r and Pi r squared,
A half a circle and you're there,
Oh, number Pi
Oh, number Pi
We know that Pi's a tasty treat.
(to the tune of "Oh Christmas Tree")

Pi Day Song

Pi day songs
All day long.
Oh, what fun it is,
To sing a jolly pi day song
in a fun math class
like this. (Repeat )

Circles in the snow,
Around and round we go.
How far did we have to run?
Diameter times pi!
(Refrain )
(to the tune of "Jingle Bells")

On a completely different nerd front, here is my latest scrapbook project, featuring my nerdy son and his nerd friends. I am doing some catch up on my pages. This is L during his 12th birthday sleepover party.
It was a fabulously easy event, no party favors, no cute hats, no silly games involving balloons. I simply threw the kids in the basement with some PS2 games, candy and a pizza and sent them home in the morning.

I did the entire layout using scraps and supplies from my stash:pp from my stash TreeHouse and Paper LoftCreative Imaginations cardstock photo cornersAmerican Craft letter stickersMaking Memories rub onsI'm thinking the brads are MME, but I'm not sure

These new holidays are just so confusing, mercy what is the world coming to. (said in a quavering old lady voice, throwing lace mitted hands into the air)

I wondered why your DH blog name was Pi Dave. Happy Birthday!
