damn you for making me hungry at 2:50 in the morning when I can't/won't cook anything. I'm gonna go pass out now and get Loser's Lunch in the morning, then I won't have to cook and it'll make you jealous, so there.
I'm drunk now so pay no attention to the words in front of your face. bye bye

Darn shame Seattle is so far away from Pittsburgh. We're kicking off Pittsburgh Pie Night with a Pi day Pie Party! 3.14 seems an apropos day for the kickoff. We'll eat a piece of pie in your honor.

Now I just have to figure out what kind of pie to make!

Sweet! Let me know how it goes.

I will! I'm thinking salmon-leek savory pie... and a standard apple... not sure what else yet.

Sadly my friend who was born on Pi day no longer lives here... else I'd have her be guest of honor.

If I know I'll be in Seattle in the future I'll let you know- maybe there can be pie!
