Happy Birthday, Greta Christina

Happy Birthday to FTB’s beloved Greta Christina, who turns 50 years old today. After years of only admiring her from a distance and occasionally linking back and forth to her blog, I was very happy that she agreed to join this network when we asked her. And even more happy to finally get to meet her in person at Skepticon, and her partner Ingrid as well. She rocks in pretty much every way a person can rock. And if you’re a drinker, you should try the cocktail she invented for her birthday.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    Here’s my favorite rye whiskey: http://catoctincreek.com/products/mosbys

    Not sure if the banana flavor will work with her cocktail, but this is some of the best straight sippin’ whisky I’ve ever encountered.

    Gretchen referred to her nuts. Heh, heh, heh.

    I’ll be drinking my favorite scotch tonight, Lagavulin (the standard 16-year product): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagavulin_Single_Malt . We will almost assuredly not make it to midnight nor do we care to even try. I’m eager to get some time with my 1 year-old nephew early this evening who I think looks just like me and has the energy level of excited atoms.
