I love it - - National Nap Day sounds like a great idea. Time changes always mess me up for a few days.

Yes, it is. Sounds like a good day to have a pi(e) and then a nap.

I hate pi day- it reminds me of 40 years of pi usage on a daily basis.

Every day is nap day for DH. He's wearing his "Nap for the Cure" t-shirt, though.

I made pie last week... don't feel like making one today.... so I'll just draw a lot of circles in honor of Pi.

I just decided to sleep an hour later, so it was no problem for me.
