Pi Day Giveaway

I'm a geek in a house full of geeks. And we are not too proud to admit it. We celebrate our dorkiness and revel in the fact that one day each year we can proudly say "it's our day!" and this year, we are once again celebrating with a Pi day giveaway. That's because our big day is not the anniversary of the first Big Bang Theory or Bill Gate's birthday, it's March 14... or Pi Day (3.14, get it?).  It's a legit national holiday folks.

Around the country there are celebrations, such as Einstein look-alike contests, pie-throwing at schools - typically Math teachers after students have memorized a whole lot of Pi, and the mailing of acceptance letters at the holy grail of geekdom, MIT.

By the way, for those who, also like me, have forgotten middle school math, Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter. Meaning, for any circle, you can divide the circumference (the distance around the circle) by the diameter and always get exactly the same number. And that number is irrational... which means it never ends. {yes, Chloe, I googled that!}

The giveaway: we have 2 t-shirts to give away (pictured above) from the super-nice geeks at ThinkGeek. This treasure trove of loveable geek paraphernalia is letting us give away 2 of these adorable navy blue 100% cotton babydoll t-shirts. They are fitted, not baggy like the guys' tees, with a Pi symbol printed on the front in white using the first 4493 digits of Pi used to construct the Pi symbol itself. That's a whole lot of Pi. Enough for everybody to share.
