I seem to have had a birthday this year too. Thank you everyone for the well-wishes and thank you [livejournal.com profile] hildejohanne for the cute v-gift! I also got a couple of beautiful stories:

[livejournal.com profile] sgamadison wrote The Best Gift of All, a birthday story set in her lovely Cabin series.

Thank you so much everyone! You really made my day :D

I've been insanely busy lately. My choir is having the annual autumn concert this weekend and there's been a lot of extra practices, plus I managed to get roped into helping to plan next year's spring concert so I've had extra meetings on top of everything. I almost had to admit defeat and go buy a cake for work last Friday and I haven't bought a birthday cake since... I actually don't think I've ever had a store-bought cake. However, I somehow found the time to bake - lemon-lime pie instead of cake, but it was delicious and my co-workers liked it.

My family came over for dinner on Saturday and I fed them salmon with blue cheese sauce and more pie. I got the latest Pratchett from Mum and a new coffee maker from dad (my old one broke two weeks ago and since I've mostly switched to tea anyway, I had put off getting a new one, but dad was worried he won't get any coffee when he comes to visit...) My sister got me a set of cheap wineglasses that I can break with a good conscience. She knows me so well. Best of all - Mum promised to pay for my dentist appointment next week! I'm having a new crown put in and I've actually been more panicked about the cost than the actual procedure. I might be able to afford to eat this month after all!


November is getting closer and I still have a lot of NaNo plotting to do. I seem to be having the same problem as always - my group of protagonists are fine and fleshed out, but I have no idea who my villains are. Ah, well. There's still another week to go so with a little luck I should have it figured out until then.

So, what's going on with you?

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] bluespirit_star! I hope you're having a wonderful day :D Here is a little Entangled Particles ficlet for you:
