Year of the Cubed Slip Jig

Twenty-seven is an interesting number, since being 3 x 3 x 3 makes it not only a cube but a slip jig. Also, slip jigs often make good cross-step waltzes, which is another reason this is a good number. It also reminds me somewhat of 25, in being very pointed, though I think it has more motion and less stability to it. But all the nines involved make it also very secretive.

On a final note, apparently I share a birthday with Scott Adams.

27 for me has been a year of major obstacles and major accomplishments (hopefully culminating with passing my qualifying exams tomorrow!)... I think "less stability" qualifies as a good adjective. :)

Happy belated birthday to you, and may your year of 27 have movement, but in less of a rollercoaster way than mine has. :)

The next cube would be 4*4*4= 64

I hope I live to see it.

We have many cube options and they have their variations. Any way happy belated b'day.
