Because every time this day of the year rolls around, I make a brand spankin' new BANNER! UMF, YEAH!!!
God damn, Sayu does make a glorious theme for a new banner, doesn't she? And what better way to celebrate today than with CAKE!? Like, seriously!!!
November 18th, my Blog's official Cake Day! You can also call it an Anniversary, Birthday, the day this blog came to life... anything you want, but to me it is officially a Cake Day and I am ready to celebrate it with all of you! Oh my gosh I have been waiting for this day so much, I'm just sitting here all like EEEEEP! Honestly, I am bouncing in my seat and typing like a lunatic, I'M THAT EXCITED! FEEL THE EXCITEMENT, PEOPLE! GYAAAAAAH!!!
I don't know what's gotten me so excited, aside from the fact that today, oh my gosh today, my Blog is 4 years old. FOUR YEARS OF AGE, PEOPLE! That's... wow, that's incredible and yeah, I'm ecstatic about this. I'm so happy, so overwhelmed! I don't think you have any idea how happy and hyper I am right now, and just so downright proud. I feel like a Mama bear who's cub successfully stole that pot of honey. Ma gosh!
Okay, so I know I haven't written as much as I could have this year due to my life becoming... well, a big thing. University has really swamped me, I'm now on the University newspaper as well, and I'm just trying to work my hardest to get good grades. But even with all this I don't forget my blog, my lovely 4 year old blog... it's still here for me, and to know that I have made it this far, even when life has become busier and my mind more preoccupied with schoolwork and my own life, well... it's wonderful. I'm so happy that, through everything, I have come to the 4 year mark with Okay! Musume Time and returned to celebrate another Cake Day.
If I thought that my 3rd year Anniversary with this blog was a big thing, then I feel like I'm making an even bigger to-do out of this years anniversary; it feels special. Then again, this blog is special. It's my baby boo and I love it!
So of course I wouldn't miss the Cake Day of my blog for the world, because damnit, it's my blog and I want to celebrate this day with you all! Everyone who reads what I write is just as much a part of this blog as I am, so it isn't just a day to celebrate 4 years of this blog being around, but also 4 years of you guys being here, supporting whatever terrible things I write and for just giving me a chance to use my voice, to hear your voices, and also for being a part of this community. I would love to say that it was my pure passion for Idols and writing that kept me going this long, but I wouldn't be telling the whole truth, because it really is you guys I have to thank. Without your inspiration, comments or suggestions, I would probably not be sitting here today.
So, thank you. 4 years have gone by, and I hope 4 more pass as well in the future. Today, on my blog's beloved Cake Day, we shall celebrate together; let us celebrate the blog, the cake and, of course, the readers behind the screens.
Okay! Musume Time, OMEDETOU!!!
Now that the speech is over and done with, let's celebrate! It's time to GET YO CAKE ON!
First up... CHAYU!!!
I see Chayu's getting her Cupcake on for the Cake Day Bizarre...
But which one will she choose!? The yellow cake or the pink cake...?
Of course, it has to be the pink one!!!
Actually, I have my own cupcake to celebrate Cake Day Bizarre, so HA!!!
Oi now, you cheeky mare! This blog may have been around a while, but 20 years is 16 years too many!
Got cake? NO!!! But Chayu DOES have a few gifts for me right there, I see...~
What is it with these Idols and claiming this blog is 20!? Geez...
Still, at least they bring CAKE!
Ooooh, looks like we're gonna have a party! A MUSUME PARTY!
My ever-reliable Honey-bo, breakin' out the wine for us adults! Good to know you celebrate in style, Honey~
Chayu's bringing the balloons 'cause you can't have a party without the balloons!
Meanwhile, Gaki comes with a delivery of even more cake... and herself!!!
CHAYU! That is NOT what the Balloons are used for!!!
This Cake Day Bizarre would not be complete without moar CAKE!!! Gimme some o' that cake, Dayashi!
Mayu: "Do you want some cake with your cake?"
Paruru: "Indeed I do!"
Cake be GOOD!
As long as cake is involved girls, I don't care what you dress up as during whatever season.
That said, why not just dress up as CAKE!? Gives me a Sugar Rush!!!
Goodness gracious me, even Arashi have come to the Bizarre! Didn't know it was that popular!
Sho thanks me for the cake, I simply smash it in his pretty face as a 'You're welcome'~
Hows about some cake from the group I fail to boycott?
Look who finally turned up with her share of the cake! Come on in, Sakuranbo, you don't have to feel ashamed!
Dayashi: "Do I see... CAKE!?"
I think Riho's more excited than I am at the prospect of cake!
And gracing us with her presence once again is Chayu, bringing with her... well, CAKE!!!
Oh look, just in time! Juice=Juice have brought us all cake, though Uemuu doesn't look too happy at the prospect of sharing it with me...
Good thing KanaTomo came along with extra snacks, then!
Risako is excited for cake! And why wouldn't she be!?
S/mileage went a little overboard though and decorated theirs in their image... girls, it's MY blogs cake day...!!!
I think the boys have realised that the cake is three candles too short as well... thanks for clarifying, lads! ^^
That face worries me...
and yet I still trust the cake itself!
Oh wow, that cake sure does look delicious! Can I share some?
And yet, Koha refuses to share her cake with me ;^;
But no matter what, you can always rely on this fact;
THERE WILL ALWAYS BE CAKE!!!
And where would this Cake Day Bizarre be without a little music!? HIT THE DECKS, DJ!
Because... PAPANCAKE! All cake is good cake~
BECAUSE TODAY IS THE BIRTHDAY! YEEEEAH!
... Nothing beats a classic ;)
But nothing can beat AAA and their Birthday ballad, either!
And yet... nothing can beat the greatness that is Arashi no Yoru ni...
I miss Sea*A...
No matter what though, let's all have a SUPER Happy Birthday together and many more after!
Thank you for celebrating with me. I love you <3
