How am I preparing for the big four-oh? It’s a strange combination of acceptance and indifference. Think of it this way: it’s like accepting something then shoving it immediately into the pocket of your pants so you can forget about it.

My insurance agent met me over lunch today. Go, free lunch! Two months ago I received notice that I had already fully paid my first insurance/pension plan. Good gosh, has it been five years already? So now my agent wants to sell me a new insurance plan that promises bigger benefits. Tempting, but the payments are also more expensive compared to my last plan. Considering that I’ve not had a significant pay raise (take note, significant) for the past two years, the new plan is too expensive for me.

Dear Manny Pacquiao, can you give me some money, Manny? Heck, your logo-studded shorts earned you five million pesos.

Meanwhile it was only last week that I noticed this sign in a street I always pass through every morning on my way to work:

I think I need Adam to touch me all over. I’m getting tired of the same old dull routine. (So I wrote to the paper, took out a personal ad. And though I’m nobody’s poet, I thought it wasn’t half-bad.) (Name the title and artist from where those lyrics came from.)

It's "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)" orginally by Rupert Holmes.

Additional trivia about "Escape". It was the last #1 record of the 70's, the first #1 record of the 80's, and a #1 record to top the charts in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, and Japan. :)

Congrats, Benj! And thanks for dropping by.
