Many happy returns!
NaNo update: 7829 words as of midnight last night. Still not writing as much as I should daily. Must fix that! However, I did introduce a guest character, and moved the plot along, and wrote a very amusing bit of banter which I hope I can keep in there when I edit (after NaNo, of course).
p.s. i am totally going to use my charlie + math icon for every NaNo update post, stupid word count....
