Pi Day Pi-ku

Project slip.
No need for sleep.

Hot caffeine.
No need for sleep.

I love you!
No need for sleep.

In honor of Pi Day, I wrote a few pi-ku.1

  1. A pi-ku is a three-line poem, like a haiku, but with three syllables in the first line, one in the second, and four in the third, following the pattern of the first three digits of pi: 3.14. 

“What kind of idiot are you?” Those used to be fighting words. Now they just sound like another Buzzfeed quiz.

How to Name a Baby. Among other things, why Ashley will be an Old Lady Name. Good to know…1

  1. Though it’s too late for us. Yet, when discussing her name’s fate with her, Ashley seemed quite comfortable with it. 

Biking Recap for February 2014


Two months in and I’ve already biked farther than I did in the first half of last year. Woo hoo!

My February Bicycling Accomplishments

  • I biked to work almost every day I worked in Hillsboro. I skipped one day because I drove Jamison and some others to an engineering field trip later in the day. And, well, I drove a couple more days because there was a lot of snow in the neighborhood, snow on the bike lanes, and too much traffic to want to take the lane. And I didn’t bike the day Heather and I went to the beach earlier this week. And I worked in Folsom a couple of days. And February is a short month to start with. Huh. I’m starting to wonder whether I biked at all this month… ;-)
  • The first day it snowed, I biked. Most people stayed home. I probably should have. It was an exercise in balance getting out of the neighborhood. The bike lanes were covered with snow. But there was virtually no traffic, so I just rode in the lane. Maybe three cars passed me in two miles — wondering who that idiot was riding his bike to work. Ha! :-D
