Happy Birthday Krissy

This seems to happen every April 18: It’s Krissy’s birthday again! And, as ever, she’s just fabulous, and I love her tons. For her birthday I bought her a rice cooker (this one) and will be taking her to dinner. If you were to wish her a happy birthday in the comments, that would be lovely. No pressure, however, she’s fine either way.

    It is good that you’ve noticed a pattern. Happy birthday. Krissy!

    And a special thanks for helping that husband of yours bring us many hours of enjoyment and escapism. By doing so you are definitely helping make my life a bit brighter.

  9. Happy Birthday, and wishes for many more! Another lap around the sun completed.

  10. Hippy Birdday, Krissy! You did a great job raising those two kids (Athena and John).

  11. Huh. When you said you bought Krissy a rice cooker, I thought maybe it was a, you know, person. A chef. And that dinner was going to be Asian, where the person who cooks rice would be.

    Well, okay then. HAPPY BIRTHDAY KRISSY!

  12. Happy Birthday Krissy. I am pleased and proud to share a natal day with you. Enjoy this day and all the many more to come.

  13. A rice cooker??? Scalzi, you are one of the true romantics. At least it wasn’t a vacuum cleaner!

    Happy Birthday to Mrs. S, he must have other redeeming qualities…

    A rice cooker?

  14. Happy Birthday! That is a great rice cooker. I’m a rice cooker convert: my thought was “I make great rice on the stovetop, I don’t need this.” Someone gave me one and I learned how useful it is to have something that turns itself and on and off. My boat-living SIL uses hers constantly. I hope you have a good rice cooker cookbook to go with?

  15. Happy Birthday, Krissy! We have a slightly different model of the same brand of rice cooker; I hope you like it! :-)

  16. I, too, wish you the happiest of birthdays, and many more to come.

    How nice to hear of something good on this otherwise grim day of Infernal Revenue…

  17. Another Happy Birthday,, Krissy… you put up with a LOT! Lots to enjoy, of course.

  18. Happy Birthday Krissy – we don’t know each other, but thanks for keeping John is a state that allows me to keep enjoying all these great books and Whatevers and stuff :)

  19. Hope you had a wonderful dinner and that everything else today was as enjoyable as everyone here would want for you.


    I use the rice cooker for rice, veg, fish… lots of things. It’s one of the best presents I ever bought someone else. :-D

  21. Happy belated birthday, Krissy. Since your husband seems just too perfect in his virtual persona, I suppose he’s hiding some flaw for which you deserve a medal for putting up with him. Although I also suppose his entertainment skills are legit, and that’s all anyone wants in a partner, right. :)

  22. Happy birthday, Krissy! A day late, but heartfelt nonetheless. Hope you enjoy the rice cooker. We have a similar model, which I discovered from following the Twitter account of Aliette de Bodard – apparently SFF and cooking overlap. πŸ˜„
