Oh no, not again!

Oh no, not again!

Ayayay, it’s that day of the year again when you don’t know if you’d be happy or sulky. I remember I used to love this date, but that was decades ago. So, I have resolved that I will treat this day like any other day (except maybe for Christmas or New Year). No nothing — zero, none, nada, nil, zilch, 404.


I actually stopped counting the digits when I was 25 and that was four years ago. The worst part is, I will have to edit that paragraph-long tag line on my blog masthead that says “in his mid-twenties“. *hehe* My mom’s story about how I should have been named after George Washington (born: February 22, 1732) instead of Abraham Lincoln (born: February 12, 1809) is still fresh in my head.

Several people have texted me earlier with greetings, as well sa YM messages, Friendster messages and emails. But then again, we’ll have to greet the good ole’ Abe Lincoln George Washington a happy birthday.

Abe is the founder and Editor-in-Chief of YugaTech. You Can follow him on Twitter @abeolandres.

    Washington, and Lincoln ba? Well, as an atheist this are my favorite quotes from them:

    “The Bible is not my book nor Christianity my profession. I could never give assent to the long, complicated statements of Christian dogma”

    – Abe Lincoln

    “My earlier views of the unsoundness of the Christian scheme of salvation and the human origin of the scriptures have become clearer and stronger with advancing years, and I see no reason for thinking I shall ever change them.”

    – Abe Lincoln

    “The only person who is a worse liar than a faith healer is his patient.”

    – Abe Lincoln

    “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.”

    – Abe Lincoln

    “I beg you be persuaded that no one would be more zealous than myself to establish effectual barriers against the horrors of spiritual tyranny, and every species of religious persecution.”

    – George Washington

    “To give opinions unsupported by reasons might appear dogmatical.”

    – George Washington

    “There is nothing which can better deserve our patronage than the promotion of science and literature. Knowledge is in every country the surest basis of public happiness. ”

    – George Washington

  42. ManuelV says:

    Abe, maybe you can treat yourself (and three of your friends) to a trip to Bora?

    There’s an on-going contest where you can win a free trip to Boracay.

    I’m sure that you have tons of “oops” moments or life stories where you were able to creatively get yourself out of whatever dilemma you were in.

    I wonder if all the winners of the contest turn out to be bloggers.

    Anyway, sali ka na! :-)
