The Good Ship Mary

In other good news today comes a streak from my dear friend Mary Robinette Kowal. In the last week:

* Mary turned 40. She dressed like Cinderella for the formal dinner held in her honor.

* She won against me in Iron Chef Pear Battle (But only by the skin of her teeth. And I did have one arm effectively tied behind my back).
* Her infamous grandmother turned 104. (The almond-flavored birthday cake was divine.)
* She accepted a 2-book deal from Liz Gorinsky at Tor books for her "Jane Austen with Magic" series, the first of which is entitled Shades of Milk and Honey.
* Today is her mother's birthday.

If you haven't stopped by her website to wish her felicitations on one, or all, of these events, I encourage you to do so. As an added incentive, I offer you this special treat that Mary's father performed for us after dinner.

Cheers to you, Mary. May your lucky dirigible keep sailing the skies!!!

Is THAT where that birthday cake was from? The birthdays were so thick on the ground it was hard to guess. :)
