Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

Do I get to be irrational on this day? (I know it was a few days ago...)

ETA: Oh, cool! I just googled "irrational number" because I wasn't totally sure pi was irrational, and I found out it is: by "irrational", mathematicians mean a number that cannot be expressed as a fraction- that is, as the ratio of two numbers. I vaguely remember learning about irrational numbers in high school math classes. But I love the pun anyway.

GAH. Please disregard my post above... I was in a hurry and I think I got the definition of "irrational" wrong.

Tom, you are correct! Pi is an irrational number: https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irrational_number

Science fiction trivia: In Carl Sagan's sci-fi novel, "Contact", mathematicians discover that pi does, in fact, repeat itself (at a very distant decimal place). The repeating pattern forms a message. "Contact" is a good read (but not a good movie).

I'm sorry, it's raining here. There's a bad connection. Did you say, "Please help me eat these pies!"?

lol. Admittedly, that raw avocado key lime pie in the first pic, I made the mistake of taste testing a little bit, and then ended up eating the entire pie myself. I had to go out and buy ingredients to make another one for a family get together. I gained three lbs that day, but back then they were much needed pounds. I'm pretty sure if I ever have a last meal request before I die, that pie would be on the top of my list. But I would happily make some pie for any vegan visitor to my house.
