Perfect Time for a Post

On the fourth day of Birthdaymas, my blogger have to me,
Salutations from a paranoid Honda!

And on the fifth day of Birthdaymas, my blogger have to me...
A belated Boxing Day post. And her apologies.

Yep, that's right readers and fans, I'm trapped in a paranoid vehicle!

By "paranoid" I mean that I accidentally set off the panic alarm (I didn't know that pulling up the door-locky indicator stick thing would set it off!) and, though it turns itself off after a while, when you open the door, IT STARTS GOING OFF AGAIN. And so goes the story of how I got myself trapped in a paranoid minivan.

And I think that I myself am having a panic attack. Or I'm on the verge of one. Either way, it sucks.

I'm especially worried about what'll happen when Mom gets back and tries to open the door. She'll have to unlock it first, but she'll still be OPENING THE DOOR. When I opened the door, the van FREAKED OUT on me. And it was scary!

I'd like to see YOU try being an anxiety-ridden teen in a van with the panic alarm going off! 

Plus, I think my white chocolate hot chocolate has coffee in it. And while I like coffee, I don't really like coffee. 

I really want to lean my head on the steering wheel, but it'll probably make the horn go off. 

Oh, I've almost forgotten the Boxing Day Year-In-Review!

Quotes from a post that were also from drafts of posts:

"Yesterday, I auditioned for the school musical this spring, which is, as alluded to in the title of this post, the Wizard of Oz."

"Ash doesn't have a dirty mind, she has a sexy imagination..."

"How to pimp your trumpet. Use a mute-saddlebag and an automatic valve-oiling system."

"Now, we're at lunch. Some of us are talking about when their mothers get old.
Tess is talking about pseudoscience now."

"Adam says: "It depends on the size of the deer.""

Etc:

One of my cats had kittens. 

I like existential questions. 

I have no idea what to put. It's the fifth day of Birthdaymas now, and I forgot to post yesterday. Sorry. 

Salutations from not at home,

Another Day, Another-- WHAAAT?!

On the third day of Birthdaymas, my blogger gave to me...
A race against Sims 4 downloading

Yep, that's right m'dears, I got THE SIMS 4 for Christmas! Along with a BUNCH of other great stuff. But SIMS FOUR!!! I've wanted Sims 4 since THE DAY IT CAME OUT, which was September 2. So, I've wanted it for 2 months and 23 days. And it's 23% downloaded! Wait, 24%. 

Like when I first got my laptop(and Sims 3), I will type as much as I can before the game completely downloads. That will be rather difficult, though not because of time constraints, but because of my own creative block. 

27%, 28%, 29%...
It's almost a third of the way done. I'd better get cracking then. 

Other presents I got: a Keurig brewer( yay!) along with multiple flavors of hot chocolate (milk chocolate, dark chocolate, Irish creme, and salted caramel); wireless headphones (they look really durable, so hopefully they can stand up to me); a thermal coffee mug (stays hot for 3 hours and cold for 6); a soft, fluffy, purple robe; 2 pairs of pajama pants; a pi shirt and a Loki shirt; a sticker for my door that says 221B Baker Street; a router/repeater (yay for hermitry!); a particle physics book; a college prep book; a necklace that says "I am burdened with glorious purpose" (cuz I am); two pairs of socks; a new pair of black loafers...
46%, 47%, 48%...
...treble clef/bass clef heart earrings; an infinity ring; and (not the last gift, but I can't list everything I got) a new phone charger (I go through those about as much as I do headphones).

56%. Over halfway there. 57%.

I'm sorry I didn't post between early May and Tuesday, but I got a bit caught up in my year. I typed up (or at least started) two posts in July, but they didn't make it out of the drafts. Again, sorry. 

61%, that's almost two-thirds. 62% now. 

63. Creative blocks SUCK. I want to type SO MUCH post for you, but I just can't!

65. Sorry about all the numbers, but I'm excited to finally get to play Sims 4. I got the free demo in the summer and made some Sims on it, so I'm gonna use the ones of Mom and myself to try the game out at first. 

69%...70%! Nearly 3/4 of the way through. 

Later today, we're going to my aunt and uncle's house for Christmas. I'm rather apprehensive about it. 6 annoying cousins are annoying. One of them calls herself "antisocial" and yet she jabbers on to me about her friends. Plural friends. I barely have plural friends. There's Time Lord (the other tuba player), Ernest (fellow Schol Bowler), Mr. Bean (his birthday was Saturday), Band Buddy...

Okay, maybe I do have more friends than I think I do. Whatever. I was trying to make a point. 

83% now. Over 4/5ths of the way done. Now 84%. 85%. One of my molars hurts. Agh. 86--87%. SOOO CLOSE! 88%. My cat, one of my cats, had kittens two weeks ago yesterday. 89%. I'll put a picture at the end.

90%!!! 9/10 done!! 
91%
92%
93%
94% (shut up, stomach!)
95%
96%
97%
99%
Once this is done downloading I'm gonna go have salted caramel hot cocoa. 
99%.........communicating tension...
INSTALLING..
READY TO PLAY!!!!!

Im gonna start this thing up and make myself a nice cup of caramel cocoa. See you tomorrow!

Happy Stuff and Merry Things,

Merry Happy Birthdaymas!

On the second day of Birthdaymas, my blogger gave to me:
Two Christmas links to satisfy Christmas impatience!

And thus begins the second post of Birthdaymas. Plus, links!

Somehow. I haven't tried making links from my iPhone yet, so the links may just end up being urls that you have to copy and paste into your browser's address bar. So, first up in the links...

NORAD Tracks Santa!
Link: www.noradsanta.org
You're gonna have to copy/paste that for it to work, I think. Sorry. 

And next up, another of my Christmas favorites...

Make-a-Flake snowflake maker!
Link: snowflakes.barkleyus.com
Copy/paste again, my readers. 
Check out flake #29292540!
It's pretty cool, if I do say so myself. 


So, later today, I'm going to my mom's friend's house for Christmas dinner. I'm kinda apprehensive about it, since I'm not all that much for socialization, but of course, it's Christmas, so... What can ya do?

Right now, Santa is in the Maldives. Or at least, he was there recently. NORAD Tracks Santa is awesome. 

I have nothing else to say, so... See you tomorrow!

With Birthdaymas cheer and impatience,

23 Days of Birthdaymas

On the First Day of Birthdaymas, my blogger gave to me...
An explanation as to what Birthdaymas is.

Merry Christmas Eve-Eve, my dear readers, and welcome to the first annual celebration of the 23 Days of Birthdaymas!

According to my careful calculations, there are exactly 23 days (including today) until ITTBM's fifth birthday. So, in celebration of Christmas, New Year's, and ITTBM's birthday, I have decided to start celebrating Birthdaymas! Each day from today until January 14, you will get a new blog post!

Including the Boxing Day Year-in-Review! In which you shall hear about my year. 

And each day, I shall come up with new lyrics for the 23 Days of Birthdaymas song. On the last day, I will give you the whole song as a 23rd Day of Birthdaymas gift. Isn't that lovely?

I can't think of anything else to say, as Birthdaymas is pretty easy to explain at the moment, since this is the first year of it. 

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and good Birthdaymas to all, and to all, a warm fire!
