Ahh I always thought that Izumi had her birthday done already but I guess THAT wasn't her birthday at all.

Anyone else get the feeling that this manga will end when the storyline reaches the one year mark; as in on Christmas eve? If so then, at the current pace Hata is going on right now), this manga aren't even half way done.

Even saving Izumi when they were kids he didn't really do on his own volition, it wasn't until he remembered Athena's teaching that he turned around and fought off Lucky for her, and when he's protecting Nagi, it's because he's acting as her butler, not for his actual personal wish.
When he was working, during the ten years after the separation from Athena and the beginning of the story, he was either working for his parents, and thus under their orders, or they had probably ordered him to get a job (or he had realized that they wouldn't support him, and thus needed to make his own money).

What Hinagiku told him, about never being happy if he's not a little bit selfish, will probably be big when he realizes what she intended.
Definitely agree with Mentar's observation too, which really explains well his relationship issues with possible love interests, so it would make sense for Hayate to only pair up after he resolves the issue of his sense of self (something I expect to only occur near the end of the series).

I think most of the fandom would agree with you there.

I do find it strange that little Athena mentions something about restoring Athena Tennosu's memories, wonder if that means little Athena could be a doppelganger?

Alice not having most of Athena's memories actually makes a strange kind of sense. When she was de-aged, she lost (most of) her memories, and needs the power to restore them.
It gives some reasoning to Aika being part of her plot as well, being a secret keeper so that Alice would know that she needed to restore her power, in case that memory was lost, otherwise, the Alice personality could have lived a normal life, not realizing that she was actually someone else acting without all of her memories.

There are clues of another character of HnG having followed the same path, but didn't have a secret keeper, and thus doesn't realize that there are memories just waiting to be unlocked.

Care to clue us in on who that is, then?

He's most likely referring to Maria.

Since I talk to you on other forums, you already know.
As for those who I only communicate to on this forum, there's only vague clues, and nothing substantial, so I'd rather not say outright.

You know things are getting bad when someone I don't talk to regularly can decrypt my phrasings easier than someone who's had quite a while to learn how to.

This quatrain should be carved on Hinagiku's tombstone:

Einförmig ist der Liebe Gram,
ein Lied eintöniger Weise,
und immer noch, wo ich's vernahm,
mitsummen musst' ich's leise.

I think A-tan, Hina and Chiharu are the only people who get a proper amount of sleep in that house.

For once the google translation is not extremely off.
My attempt at a poetic translation:

Unchanging is love's sorrow,
a monotonous song,
and still, where I descried it
I softly hummed along.

It looks like A-tan's morning habit hasn't change, and Nagi with her otaku status. I don't know whether it's a good or a bad thing now that Nagi has Chiharu for a partner. Although, thing isn't looking so good for Hayate, if he needs to sleep like a normal human being that is. Being able function normally with only 1 hr of sleep, I guess his mind is as durable as his body...Or maybe he would just go into his REM state immediately in the next chapter....

Although A-tan said she needs Hina's presence to restore her power, it will take awhile if they hardly being together for 5 days out of a week.

The body will not function if someone doesn't get enough sleep, and the Mythbusters have actually proven that lack of sleep is worse for functioning than being drunk.
Hayate, and everyone else apparently, seriously needs to either get more sleep or start getting sick more often. Once he chooses someone as his partner, they'll probably force him to sleep more often (and he's a 'not distracted by the fanservice'(trope), so it wouldn't be the 18+ 'more sleep' -_-), so maybe the cannot spit it out(trope) needs to end before he causes someone else problems.

And while Alice said that she needed the power of the blade and Hinagiku, her statement about the house seemed to indicate that she could regain power for herself and just needed the blade's power to do something else entirely, or maybe it's the cap on top, rather than just powering up by the sword.

It's not really a surprise that Hayate and Maria don't get much sleep. There was a chapter or two before where it was pretty much stated that, even in the mansion, they only got 3-5 hours of sleep each night.
