My kid is pretty great. And she’s 19 today. I hope this year of hers is everything good.

  1. Stunning shot! Beautiful girl who I am sure is smart, funny and self aware. As they get older it’s hard not to worry about the world they’ll be handling in the future. I am pinning my hope to this next generation.. and praying they’ll take no prisoners! HBD

  2. phattsphlightsofphancy – Phatts is a professional short, fat, bald guy, one-time searcher for the Holy Grail (before that american archeologist git found it), and enthusiastic looker-out of windows. He can usually be found killing time in Hotel Lobbies or at FL410 planning World Domnation....

    Congrats to your lovely young lady! You and I have at least those two things in common – our youngest have just turned 19, and we are both blessed by ethereal riches far beyond our measure! Best of the season to you and your!!

  3. To Athena: Happy Birthday!
    To everyone: How strange to go from a 2003 “random whatever” playing Uno “take two cards Daddy” to 19.
    I say: Let’s enjoy each other every step of the way.

  4. @Athena Pro-tip: Don’t do something dumb like going to Ft. Lost in the Woods. Keep up with that college/university education. Sure, you’ll miss out on stuff like making your bed in a certain way every day, but! you’ll be able to craft a better life for you and yours. ESSAYONS!

  5. Happy birthday Athena! 19 is a pretty good time (I say with 6 months of experience…). Hope you enjoy it!

  6. She’s definitely a blend of the two of you, looks wise, and in the best possible combination. That and the mad photographer skillz makes for an absolutely lovely photo. Merry Christmas to you all.

  7. Hey! My middle child has the same birthday, and his name is made from the same letters. Happy Birthday Athena and Ethan.

  8. This is my annual tradition of wishing happy birthday to John Scalzi’s daughter, whom I have never met, but who is precisely forty years you ger than I am. Have a lovely year, Athena!
