Tie×r²

Well, it’s just been a plethora of holiday-esque days lately. Last week was Mardi Gras and the ensuing Ash Wednesday, followed by Saturday the 12th, which of course was St. Patrick’s Day (observed, and paraded) around here, at least. Today (or yesterday, actually, at press time) was Pi Day. Get it? 3/14? 3.14 (plus a gazillion numbers) is π, of course, which is used in various mathematical formulas to make the SAT & ACT more fun. Or stressful.

I saw that there were lots of references to pie, in the social media stratosphere. That’s more sale-able, at least at places that serve pie.

Anyway. Back to ties.

My Pi Day Tie (or Tie du Jour du Gateau) hails from Italy, according to the labels. From the house of Zanzara, this silk TdJ is from the Carnaval de Venise collection. It’s blue with tiny red polka dots, and I can’t for the life of me remember where I got it. Sorry.

Well, there is something of a milestone coming up, I guess in keeping with Pi Day, and real St. Patrick’s, etc. Wednesday, March 16th will mark my 1-year anniversary of the first tie worn on the blog. Since today’s is Tie No. 242, that’ll make 244 different ties worn in a year. But who’s counting?

Thanks for reading…Brooke
