  1. 9:26 Eastern but OK; that gives me 2 or so hours to order up a coconut creme pie.

    Mmmmmmmm, coconut creme pie…

  2. … except that April has only 30 days! D’oh!

    In which case it occurred on 3-1-41 when the Europeans will have had other things on their minds.

  3. And yet, what I take away is that I’m apparently not the only one who likes to sit in a chair with one leg curled under me.

  4. It was indeed a very special pi day.

    I figured you would post something even though you are so busy, because of course, you like pie.

    Our kids’ school did a whole week of activities, which I thought was wonderful.

    And yes — Gene Wilder IS Willy Wonka.

    I really do like pie

    Our local baker is making a lot of the ones you usually have to special order. The only choice is what flavor of diabetic coma do you choose for your descent.

  6. I’m looking forward to next year, which is going to be the correct approximation to 4 decimal places (3.1416). Get your rounding right, people!

  8. i would never do a pic like that unless I had people I could give the pies too. I am a human trash compactor. That is a dangerous thing for someone wirh a sedentary job to do.

  9. Unless Scalzi is intentionally trying to lead us all astray or blow up the internet I don’t understand the, er, math, behind 3.14 (3:14:00) and 9:26 am.

  10. @lee s: And, of course, you can use the entire number pi. 3/14/15 9:26:53.589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592307816406286208998628034825342117067982148…
    (Gotta go now. I’ll come back and put the rest in my next comment.)
