I’ve been sick for ten days and I’m out of pre-prepared posts, so please have a bunny thankyou.
“I do not want to adult today. I don’t even want to human today. Today, I want to bunny.”
You know you’re legit sick when reading an exciting new book feels too strenuous.
Enjoy your weekend!

When the suckage just sucks too much.
Happy Pi Day!
I’m the kind of geek you can (within reason) egg on to doing something by saying most people don’t act in a particular way or do whatever it is you’re describing.
Case in point: our high school math teacher told us that most people won’t ever learn the approximation for pi further than 2 or 4 decimals places. So, I had to go and memorise it to 8 decimal places. I can still remember it: 3.14159265.
Don’t ask me why it was so important to me—I can’t remember anymore. I am, however, surprised that I can still produce it without any hesitation whatsoever even though I haven’t used it in decades. (It only works in Finnish, though; clearly there’s some connection with the rhythm and sounds that made it easy for me to memorize.) I wish I was as speedy with my U.S. social security number, for instance. 🙂
P.S. For a full appreciation of my dorkiness, look at the tags for this post. :p
Messing with numbers is messy.
“It’s the large things in life that drive us, that we measure ourselves by; but it’s the small things, the daily things that–that become precious to us.”
– Rowan in Rosemary Kirstein’s The Outskirter’s Secret
As I get older, I see more and more truth in this trite-sounding idea. Or you could say that it’s yet another way of putting the concept that life happens in the cracks of bigger things or while waiting for something grand to happen.
