The Mathematics of Attraction on the Euclidean Plane or Pi in Your Face

I almost heard a big screen tintinnabulation
when you flashed that block-buster smile.
And though your algorithms are charming,
your prime number calculations compiled
fail to resolve me.
For I am Pi,
infinitely irrational,
and in the big picture
you'd find me
a fraction in your side.

If you are willing to buy a car, you will have to receive the loans. Moreover, my father commonly uses a car loan, which occurs to be really reliable.

Something really cool happened today. This page was open on my comp when i left the house earlier today. when i returned, had internet probs and so  . .. long story short, my 19 year old was sitting at my comp and my comp was open to this page while i was working with the server dudes. Ok so? So . .. . you know teens? attitude and they think "yourra  'nerd' mum" for liking / writing poetry.  OK so she walks out and she says: hey mom: and she starts quoting your poem!! "for i am pi infinitely irrational" and she kept saying it over and over . .. then she says: 'that's really cool' . .. .  i didnt say anything (worried id break the spell):) Really nice . . ..  something other than mtv crap . .. and she was actually reciting it . . .. so thanks for your poem.

Thanks Isabelle--I'm rather math-challenged but so many of the terms are poetic.  Either that or I'm really more of a geek/nerd than I realize....LOL!

F--thank you so much for taking the time to share what happened with your daughter.  It's nice to know that something I wrote made had an impact.  Tell her I challenge her to write a poem using those two lines!  Thank you as well for your first comment--yeah--I'm a woman--but not much of a girl!

Frac--hugs for the fave.
