Perspectives: Happy Π day!

Shamelessly stolen from Fr Scott

In the category of esoteric and extremely-geeky holidays, today is Π (Pi) day. Today's date is 3.14, the first three digits of this significant mathematical figure (if you multiply a circle's diameter by Pi you get the circumference, woo hoo! We should have a moment of silence at 1:59:26, the next five digits. Gee, this could get fun!
While some people will get together to recite as many digits as they can, I, personally, advocate eating a lovely piece of pie -- the kind and flavor is up to you. If you are strictly observing Lent with no sweets, have some Quiche! Or, just think of the pie you'll have on Easter morning! :)
Here's my vote... : P

It might be silly, but I have a book called "the joy of pi", with all curiosities regarding the number!
