Yeah, I think it's fair to call it manipulation. In more of a 'withholding the truth' sort of way. It was a flat-out lie, though, when people asked me if I was surprised and I said that I was.
edit: I'm usually pretty blunt, direct, and truthful--especially with those closest to me. For some reason, I thought it was more prudent to withhold the truth here. Probably because I'm not a fan of parties being held for me, but I'm a fan of parties; and using something like a birthday as an excuse to party; but people like doing things for people on their birthdays so whatever. In my mind, it was for everyone, not just for me.

i get overwhelmed and don't know where to start and then i do nothing and waste more time. this causes stress. which causes more shutting down and distraction.You hem me in -- behind and before;
you have laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.

Cock is a word for rooster
Hen is a type of chicken?
Kit kats are good
Nice chickens don't belong in the

Another is that I think about the 'next' thing I want to do, the thing that I am really excited about, and I think of this thing as a chore blocking me from what I want, and needs to be obliterated.
If it's a personal project, usually my lack of enthusiasm means that the end result isn't engaging enough to qualify it as a personal project, so it needs a rework, or to be shelved until I get a new perspective.
If I have multiple projects, I'll just switch to another. I do well on doing chores while I'm gleefully escaping another chore. Sometimes I can find a way to slip back into the original one.
The final 'no-avoiding it' solution is to recognize the pattern, expect I am going to waffle for the next couple of hours and just stress myself out. So I drop it and just go do something fun instead. During fun, my brain still attaches to the task and feels it out. This may not work for a 7.
I spend a lot of energy bluffing, double bluffing and otherwise manipulating myself.

When I was 14 I got it into my head that I could totally pierce my own nose, and like with all of my other dumb ideas, it didn't stay an idea and now I have a small raised scar on the right side of my nose which I will have to pay to get painfully sanded down or something.
Why 14 year old me, WHY?!
