Today is International Kristine Blauser Scalzi Appreciation Day
Posted on April 18, 2014 Posted by John Scalzi 79 Comments
On account that it is also her birthday. Allow me to go first and to simply say that I can’t imagine what my life would be without her; probably it would me being alone in a small apartment, eating cold cereal from the box and weeping, every day, all the time. And, yeah. Don’t want that. So thank you, Krissy, for being my wife and making my life a joy every single day you are with me. I love you.
If you wish to leave my wife birthday greetings, by all means feel free to do so in the comments.

Happy Birthday Krissy!
Happy birthday, Krissy, and thanks for putting up with John so that we can also put up with him. Wait, no, I mean “enjoy” his work. Yup. (Also, Kyle Cassidy’s author photography is consistently brilliant; has he won or been nominated for any awards for his work with sf/f authors? When I think of the iconic sf/f author photographs of the past 10 years they’re… pretty much all his.)
Happy birthday, Krissy! Thanks for making John happy so he can write awesome stuff for us to read!
Happy birthday, Krissy! Hope you have a wonderful day.
Happy Birthday, Krissy! I hope it’s a great day.
Happy Birthday Krissy! I hope your day is full of all your favorite things.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMPRESS KRISSY!!!
Happy birthday, Krissy! I hope you have a wonderful day. :-)
Happy Birthday Kristine!
Have an absolutely fantastic day!
Happy Birthday! (it’s also my birthday, my best friend’s, my niece’s, my boss’, my friend Mable’s, and another friend’s too… What the hell is up with 9 months before today???)
Happy birthday! I hope it’s a beautiful day and a year full of everything good. :)
Happy birthday, Krissy, and congrats to you both on having found each other and created what seems (from the outside) to be a great life together.
Indeed; happiest of anniversary of womb ejection to Mrs. Old Man’s War. Many joyous returns on the day.
Happy Birthday Krissy!!!
Happy birthday Krissy. I wish I knew you so I could send you a great big hug. Consider yourself virtually hugged anyway – please ask John to deliver.
Happy birthday Krissy, and many more. May all your birthday wishes be granted.
Congratulations, International Kristine Blauser Scalzi!
She rocks. You and I were so lucky to “marry up”
Happy Birthday! It is also my wife’s birthday today. Look at us kindred spirits.
Many happy returns of the day.
A most wonderfully happy birthday to you, Kristie!
Happy birthday to you, Kristine, and may your happiness only increase.
Joyful felicitations on the day, Mrs. Scalzi! I hope your spouse makes you as happy as you have clearly made him. May you enjoy many more years of laughter and love!
Happy B-day, Kristine Scalzi!
Many happy returns…and cake.
@John: Dude, who’s that goddess in the picture with you, and does your wife know about this?
Happy Birthday Krissy! And many happy returns of the day!
Happy Birthday Krissy! I really hope you have a great one
10/10 – would bang. (If that’s sexist, it’s the good kind.)
You’ve got a lot to be grateful for. It’s got to take every day effort, consideration, and thanking the heavens to earn your keep with her.
Happy birthday, Mrs. Scalzi. Wishing you many more years of happiness.
Others besides myself who share this birthday include actors James Wood and Barbara Hale. On this day, there was quite an earthquake in San Francisco, Rhodesia became Zimbabwe, Doolittle lead an attack on Tokyo that brought the war to Japan, and Einstein died…
Happy Birthday, Krissy!
Happy Birthday and many, many more!
Happy birthday, and may your zoo be as well behaved as in the pictures John posts.
Happy Birthday, Ms.Scalzi!
Happy Birthday Krissy! It was nice to meet you on the cruise.
Happy birthday! That is a gorgeous picture.
huzzah! Happy Birthday! And many more!
Happy Birthday Krissy
Happy Birthday, Krissy! From a fellow April 18ther. :)
A very happy birthday to the fabulous Krissy!
Happy birthday, Krissy!
Have a very happy day. What a wonderful tribute from your hubby. He has a really great way with all kind of words.
Happy Birthday, Krissy! Thank you for making him happy and tolerating his oddities (among them writing the books we love). And thank you for Jane Sagan (yeah, I know he wrote her).
Happy birthday, Krissy! Hope you have a great way to celebrate the day. Also thank you for saving your husband from a life of closet-sized apartments and eating cold cereal daily, co-producing the wonderful Athena, and being co-custodian of a wonderful four-legged menagerie.
Happy Birthday! I always side with you when John lets us know your opinions. (Erm, ensures I won’t get mallated).
Happy Birthday! May there be many, many more!
Happy Birthday! I only know you from what your adoring husband says, but that’s enough to make me think you are a great person.
Three Cheers for Mme. Scalzi!
Happy Birthday! Wish you much happiness in the coming year. Then more.
Happy Birthday to Krissy!
Happy birthday and many happy returns!
Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag (Literally: Cordial wishes of luck for your birthday) or Happy Birthday Krissy. Many happy returns.
You guys are so cute! Birthday and holiday wishes from Montana!
Happy birthday, Krissy!
I’ve read the first three books in the Old Man’s War universe, and my understanding is that you, Krissy, were the first to read all three, to tell their author if he was on the right track.
So it goes that you’ve been instrumental in the delivery of many hours of my amusement (and many minutes of reflection, too). For that, and for all of the manifold other ways in which you make it easier for your Mr. Scalzi to write, I thank you.
…And offer my best wishes for the year to come.
Happy Birthday Krissy! I hope you, John and Athena are having a wonderful day. Today is also my mother’s birthday and she would have loved that picture of you two.
Happy Birthday Krissy!
Many Happy Returns, Krissy, and may you have a fantastic year.
Joyous returns of the day, Ms.Scalzi. my dogs send many sloppy kisses.
♪♫Happy Biiiiirthdaaayy Krissy!♪♫
All smart men marry AT LEAST one level up. It makes them try to be better men. Krissy, thanks for making John a better man. :-)
Happy Birthday, Kristine Blauser Scalzi! (Not sure if that counts as something I think, really, but happy birthday anyway.)
Many Happy returns!
Aww so sweet. Happy Birthday Krissy.
Happy Birthday, Krissy!
[Deleted because Krissy saw this and just laughed her ass off at this total loser – JS]
Happy Birthday! I hope your day is full of awesome
I’m a tad late, since I spent Krissy’s birthday in the English Channel, en route to Southampton, but I hope you all had fun, and that you have many more happy birthdays to come…
Same here, a belated but very heartfelt happy birthday, Krissy!
Happy Birthday and many happy returns from the frozen north!
Happy birthday! If only of a fraction of what John gushes about you, you are an amazing wife and mother. Best wishes and have fun on this special day.
If you didn’t have Krissy, I think it’s more likely that… well, Tim Minchin said it best.
But happy birthday to the lovely woman who makes John happy!
I was on a trip yesterday, but…Happy birthday, Mrs. Scalzi!
Very late to this party, but a very sweet gesture on your part, John. Happy B-day to Krissy, and I hope she ate lots of cake!
