OK I tried the following in IRB and I get the same type of error?

root@karma:/opt/ruby-1.9.3-p194# irb
irb(main):001:0> require 'erb'
=> true
irb(main):002:0>
irb(main):003:0* weekday = Time.now.strftime('%A')
=> "Friday"
irb(main):004:0> simple_template = "Today is <%= weekday %>."
=> "Today is <%= weekday %>."
irb(main):005:0>
irb(main):006:0* renderer = ERB.new(simple_template)
=> #<ERB:0x000000033558b0 @safe_level=nil,
@src="#coding:UTF-8\n_erbout = ''; _erbout.concat \"Today is \";
_erbout.concat(( weekday ).to_s); _erbout.concat \".\";
_erbout.force_encoding(__ENCODING__)", @enc=#<Encoding:UTF-8>,
@filename=nil>
irb(main):007:0> puts output = renderer.result()
NameError: undefined local variable or method `weekday' for main:Object
        from (erb):1:in `<main>'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.9.1/erb.rb:838:in `eval'
        from /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.9.1/erb.rb:838:in `result'
        from (irb):7
        from /usr/local/bin/irb:12:in `<main>'
irb(main):008:0>

What's am I missing??
