Pi Day 2015

March 14th is always Pi Day, but this year is special.  Especially at 9:26 AM (and 53 seconds).  Because the first 10 digits of pi will all play out in listing the time: 3.141592653.  Get it?  March (3) 14th (14) 2015 (15) at 9:26 (926) and 53 seconds (53).

I don’t really have a bucket list, but I’ve always thought it would be nice to memorize beyond the first 10 digits of pi.  For what reason?  I have no clue.  Numerical meditation?

With all 10 digits lining up, it seems like a good time to tack on a few more.  I think I need to get Joshua Foer’s Moonwalking with Einstein and read about memorization techniques.  Wish me luck.  If all goes according to plan, I’ll wow everyone at BlogHer this summer by standing in the hotel lobby and reciting pi.  Nothing nets you more friends than reciting numbers to yourself.

It’s the only pi day when the important moment will be 9:26 in the morning vs. 1:59 in the middle of the night.  I feel like I need to make the best breakfast ever.  What should I make?  Give me your best breakfast recipes or ideas.

Side note: Don’t forget to work on your #MicroblogMonday post for tomorrow.

Well, you should make pie, obviously. *eyeroll*

Quiche or frittata, because they look like pie. Definitely.

French toast and warm berries with scrambled eggs.

I like the frittata idea. But honestly, we eat apple pie here for breakfast more often than I care to admit. How about the hundred digit pie? http://mentalfloss.com/article/49444/10-pies-pi-day

Waffles with blackberries in the batter. We’ve been making them constantly, served with butter and cinnamon sugar. They are delicious.

But, I like pie for pi. 🙂
