Did I ever tell you...

about the time I tried to steal a dolphin?

As you can see I clearly had some liquid courage flowing through my veins at the time.

But unfortunately I didn't really have a plan.

It was more of a crime of passion that fizzled out once I realized I couldn't lift it by myself.

But look at him. Honestly, how could I resist.

Once I tried to steal a shark but it stole a chunk of my left leg. And my honour.

Capcom said...

Wow, I have always wanted to swim with the dolphins! Well, who can blame you for trying, a Flipper living in the backyard pool would be a great pet. :o)

Deneph said...

Were you going to feed the dolphin to the cats? J.K.
You're probably better off not keeping it, think of the maintenance involved.

christa said...

aw look at that faaaace.

they're quite heavy tho no?

Dolphins are great. Having one around keeps sharks away. I know it's true because the "Mythbusters" said so.

Eris said...

My gooooood!!! how great!! that is something I've always wanted to do.. and I will some day :P

They're sooo cool!

Honeybell said...

Awww . . . what an amazing experience! Somehow I doubt he would have fit in your bathtub though . . .

lyly ford said...

I think someone would have been suspicious seeing you carrying a dolphin away LOL

That's you living my dream in that picture. I've always wanted to swim with the dolphins. I don't know how many times I took one of my kids whale watching out on the Channel Islands and wanted to jump off the boat when the dolphins came to play. So enjoy them for me, too.

Daryl said...

What a great experience but seriously where would you have kept him? They just dont make fish bowls big enough.

Oooooooohhhhhh, adorable!!

groovymom said...

One of the coolest pictures EVER - thanks for sharing!!!

marcia said...

Once I had a chance to swim with dolphins in Moorea (coolest connection from São Paulo - Santiago - Ilha de Páscoa). The most amazing pet experience I had in my life... but the naughty thing made caca (or poopoo - hell, I never really wrote that) in my arms. I wouldn't want one of those in my bathtub.
Did you really had your hair cut short or you had just pulled it in a pony tail? Looked good. A lot younger ;)

Irishcoda said...

That is such a cool picture! The closest I have come to a dolphin has been at Sea World...just not the same!

maven said...

Great picture, Jorge! Looks like you have soooo much fun over there in Hawaii. I'm sure that Dolphin would have loved to come home with you; however, there's no "Dolphin food" aisle in the supermarket unlike for the cats you were feeding at Roy's! LOL

Marina said...

I wanna a dolphin too! maybe we can make an elaborate plan like misson impossible or james bond movies! what do you think? If you need any help I can be your wing man! (or wing girl... you got it...)

Eldrich Stewspoon said...

Heather (a.k.a. Bella) said...

I wonder where could I hide a dolphin if I stole one. That must be hard! Maybe you could feed many cats!

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.

In 1981, ed hardy and his wife formed Hardy Marks Publications. In 2004, Christian Bale licensed the rights to produce the high-end Ed Hardy UK line, which is based on Hardy's imagery. Prior to the ed hardy clothing line, Bale was the Head Designer at Von Dutch Originals, which marketed the imagery of Kenny Howard. Don ed hardy, commented, As demand for my artwork continues to skyrocket, I felt it was ed hardy clothing time to take on a partner that could help me manage the demand and opportunities for the ed hardy T-shirts name. Iconix is at the forefront of brand management and clearly has the capabilities to dramatically grow the Ed Hardy UK business. I'm thrilled to have them as a partner. Cheap Ed Hardy are located in everywhere. We also believe that by owning the brand alongside ed hardy clothing, the founder, there will be opportunities to further leverage his iconic name along with his new artwork.
