I wonder whether any bakery or pizzeria plans to have a special sale on March 14, starting at 9:26 a.m., selling little pies for 54 cents each. And with that, it must be time to sign off for the day...
I'm either not geeky or not mathy enough to get this. all i get is the 3/14 part. clearly I need help. - ellbeecee
(and I don't know whether it's geeky or mathy that I'm missing here. I suspect mathy, but I'm not sure) - ellbeecee
Pi is 3.141592654 (rounded up) - Johnny from iPhone
see, I knew it was probably something so simple that I'd be embarrassed for asking. and I was right. Thank you. :) - ellbeecee
elbee: Sorry, I was off most of yesterday. It's not "so simple"--I'm just one of those nerds who somehow accidentally memorized Pi to exactly that many decimal places a very long time ago, and since 3/14/15 happens this year, it just seemed natural. More likely, even damn near certain: Some places will sell pie--a slice or the whole thing--for $5.36 starting at 9:26 a.m., but it's possible nobody will be clever enough for that. (That's rounding to one more decimal place.) - Walt Crawford
I'd say it's geeky, not mathy; pi is just a constant and has almost nothing to do with math outside of geometry. - Walt Crawford
Joe was there first. This is not surprising. - Walt Crawford
hey, anyone who want to bring me pie for my birthday would be totally welcomed! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
The little pies for 54 cents is still a great idea. - Joe

All 108 Sleater-Kinney Songs, Ranked [SPIN] - http://www.spin.com/article...
All 108 Sleater-Kinney Songs, Ranked [SPIN]
From the article: "In 1995, the Olympian monolith that is Sleater-Kinney rose and went on to wreak blissful havoc on rock fans' eardrums (and hearts) for the next ten years. The trio's raw (but never undercooked) early albums received that rare combination of attention that was both early and earned. And once they found the perfect drummer, they carved new crevices in their own unmistakable punk sound, from bubblegum pop to psychedelic metal. Then they stopped. But in another triumph that defies typical careerist narrative — just like making seven straight great albums does — they returned this week, after a nearly nine-year hiatus, with No Cities to Love: an album with no loss of quality, instrumental facility, or even volume. Greatness and longevity in tandem are somewhat of a rare combination. The Who came back, sort of. The Clash, the Beatles, and Led Zeppelin did not." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
There's zero point in arguing over personal preference, but my own top 12 would be: 12. Off With Your Head (Future Soundtrack compilation) 11. Oh! (One Beat) 10. By The Time You're Twenty-Five (Get Up single b-side) / 9. What If I Was Right (off "Jackson's Jukebox" compilation) / 8. A Quarter To Three (The Hot Rock) / 7. Everything (The Woods) / 6. Little Babies (Dig Me Out) / 5. Tapping (Get Up single b-side) / 4. Dig Me Out / 3. Hot Rock / 2. Words And Guitar (Dig Me Out) / 1. Get Up (The Hot Rock) - Stephen Mack
Hmm, actually -- I need to rearrange my list to get "Burn, Don't Freeze" in the top 5. - Stephen Mack

Busted my bum last night at the party. Nearly everyone there remarked on what a great job I was doing, at least three folks want to hire me when they have their next party (mostly joking I think), one inebriated fellow wanted to divorce his wife and take me home, and the hostess was so happy she doubled her offer...$200!
Told the drunk dude I don't clean my own house and I darn sure wasn't going to clean his (we were joking...he was funny) - Shannon - GlassMistress
just for future reference: I met with an event guy to scope out options for work. He's a brand new official self-proprietor so I thought establishing a relationship could mean work for him and a price break for us since he's starting out. Day-of on-site management = $250. Prep in planning and day-of coordination = $500 w/ half upfront. And I will gladly pay it for an event that needs to go off without a hitch. Wish I had it for the big to-do coming up this week. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I was more of a bus-boy, tray runner combo. I cooked rice, and pulled things from the stove and oven on time but did no prep. I assembled a few trays - cheese and veggie, and kept the platters full. Washed a ton of coffee mugs as the hostess wanted to serve chowder in her mug collection ... 10 mugs for 60 folks, lol. All in all it was 5 hours of my time and I was offered all the food and drink I wanted (too busy to partake) and she sent me home with cake...win win ;-) - Shannon - GlassMistress

My friend who took Daisy has an upstairs neighbor who's living there on false pretenses under her mother's section 8. The owner has conflict with her, the other tenants don't like her. Andrea thinks she will be put out soon and is telling the owner wonderful things about me :-)
It's walking distance to Angie's house, and the elementary me Angie & Andrea all went to in kindergarten & 1st grade - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

OMG, Yes, Yes, Yes ... praying for you ... does the owner know about these false pretenses? (Not suggesting the bad karma of ratting someone out but honestly, she is taking spots away from awesome families like yours.) - Laura Norvig
I'm not sure what he knows of it but I have a feeling Andrea is ready to snitch lol. I agree that it isn't fair when I've complied with everything required of me while this chick & her mom are getting over. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

I wonder if this massive measles outbreak will even get a fraction of the MSM attention that U.S. cases of Ebola got. Measles can definitely be fatal. And while the mortality rate isn't anywhere near as high as Ebola, it's *way* more contagious.
But there's no Ebola vaccine for people to argue about. - Mary Carmen from iPhone

Woke up treating my arm as gingerly as ever. Did a few things around the house & realized it wasn't hurting. Tried moving my arm, and I can raise it a couple inches and also reach out away from my body. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I can also make a real fist again. That should help with the annoying dropping of stuff for no reason. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Packed up the bookshelves, and the towering pile of books in my room. Took them & some other stuff to the storage space; my neighbor's boyfriend helped. He asked me "who packed this up? You?" which I thought was kinda odd.
Then at the storage, I was showing him where to put the books, and where to put the fragile boxes, and told him a lil bit about how I plan on filling up the storage - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
He said he used to work for a moving company, and my stuff looked like pros had packed it. And he was impressed with my plans for safely fitting everything in the storage. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
And he said the worst part about moving clients who packed their own stuff was how many of them packed books in big boxes. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Man, I only made that mistake /once/. Ugh. My arms hurt just thinking about it. - Jennifer Dittrich
I needed to hear that because I feel like everything's so chaotic & it's good to know I'm doing something right :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'm so glad you had the help - and the boost! :D - Jennifer Dittrich
Ha my ex thought he was helping with our move & packed up a bunch of stuff while I was at work. He'd put almost all my books in one giant box and was hella butthurt when I read him the riot act, lmao. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
And friends who bring you boxes, who also love books, bring you plenty of the perfect size. And I didn't even have to relabel them <3 - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
