Not Pi Day Anymore? Then It’s The Ides of March!

Inside of a dog it's too dark to read

According to Wikipedia, the Ides of March, as famously remarked upon by Plutarch and referenced by William Shakespeare in Julius Caesar, are celebrated by a toga run through Rome, and by a bar crawl in San Francisco where everyone participating wears thrift-store wedding dresses.

Oh. They call that the Brides of March?

Well, look, they can’t all be π Day, with its entertaining and informative videos and it’s baked goods. But some of us were English majors! (Okay, a minor.) Some of us like Shakespeare! (Ok, when the professor isn’t super boring.)

Eh, you know me. I’ll worm a good Shakespeare quote into something given the slightest opportunity.

Have a tip we should know? tips@themarysue.com

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
