Last Night in Dublin

and I'm hanging out in a hallway to use the internet. The building in which I am staying is a new addition to this hotel and does not have wifi. But here in the basement of the main hotel there is access. Luckily here in the basement there is also a chair. 
It's become a bit of a game because this hallway is designed to save energy. So when you walk down it, the lights will switch on and then off after you've passed. So sometimes I'm sitting in the dark answering emails and I try to see how much I can type without triggering the motion sensors again. It's also fun to surprise unsuspecting hotel guests who pop out the elevator and see someone typing in the dark corner. And then he ends up being "Hurley."

Always keen to start blogging! Haha, keep it up!

I live in London, quite far from Dublin..Loool. Oh well, have a great time there dude!

maven said...

I think I would definitely scream for both: Seeing someone where I did not expect it and seeing Hurley! LOL

Just Julie said...

I'd probably pee my pants.

Wegg said...

Ha! I still think of you as "that funny bugger from Becker!" Not that that would soften the shock any. :-)

James Hernandez said...


I was thinking it would be awesome if one of the people who was at the hotel was Hugh Grant. You could surprise him and say "I'm Hurley and this is what's happened since you left me".

Lisa-Maladylis said...

I wish I would come around the corner to meet Hurly. sounds like your having fun but it must be getting old by now. have fun !!

Tony Killen said...

I'd be worse if it was 'Locke'..

Tony Killen said...

*It'd be worse... Apologies.

NOlo said...

Hey, I did that also! somewhere in Europe too btw...

But I had to sit in the carpet since no chair was available :(

Cefenix said...

What would really make 'em lose their poo is when they get off the elevator, just start chanting "The Numbers" softly while rocking back and forth in the glow of your monitor. Heh.

Debra said...

That whole double surprise thing is potentially the best thing ever. :)

tony killen, I'll see your Locke, and I'll raise you a Ben! In such a situation, they might as well order me a hearse in advance. ;)

Rachel Snyder said...

LOL I can just imagine that. Of course, if it was me I'd probably assume it was just someone who looked like you.

And Tony and Deb, you know what would be the creepiest? If it was John Terry sitting in the dark, and--if he really wanted to spook people--jumping up suddenly and saying, "You can go now." Eek!

Unknown said...

Hi! You're so lucky to be in Ireland. I hope to get there some day to look up my family. Haunted castle-awesome!! Figure on roof at night- Jacob, dude! Have fun!!

uncle soupy said...

great fun...thanks jorge.

BillyPilgrim said...

you is funny.

redelf said...

lol that would be funny, people screaming HURLEY!!!!

Me....I would scream and then smack you in the shoulder for scaring me.

Steph said...

Oh man, "Hurley" or not, if I turned the corner and realized there was someone there, I'd die of fright. I am that jumpy.

Anonymous said...

If I didnt expect anyone when I came out the elevator - I would def scream my lungs out... and when Id realize it was you... I actually think Id ask if you were typing the numbers, LOL. Hope you enjoyed your stay.

Apex Zombie said...

If you spoke Korean and were wearing the Mr. Cluck's chicken suit, that'd be a slightly bigger freak out.

Miss Scarlett said...

After clutching my throat in terror, I hope I would have the good sense to say: Keep enterin' those numbahs brutha

Then I'd be blogging about you blogging.
The circle continues.

Liz said...

Last night in Dublin! Nooooo! I haven't run into you yet!

Hi Jorge,
what you experienced in that corner of the hallway is called
movement-sensitive lighting!
It is usually more used for outside lighting and very common in Europe, but as a hallway lightning rather unusually.
How good the Hatch hadn't had such an outside lightning, perhaps the Aliens wouldn't have understand that mess of morse code then?!
Hope you enjoyed you 108-typing in that mysterical corner of an Irish Hotel!
Have fun and have a great summer!

FinoBlogger said...

Jorge, You'll have to come to Spain!!!!!!


bye bye!!!!!

Mara said...

jajaja yo me hubiera vuelto loca :p hubiera flipado :p besitos!

Jodi said...

I would be so happy to see "Hurley". If it was "Jacob" then that would be a whole other story!

Hope you & your girlfriend are having a WONDERFUL time Jorge! Safe travels to you!

chefmom said...

Your too funny. I bet the guests got a kick out of it though!

Topanga said...

I have to say how much I appreciate how dedicated you are to your blog and to us that you take the time to make entries while on vacation. Jorge, the simple every day things that you share with us makes it feel like this is more a friend/friend relationship than a celebrity/fan relationship and I think the down-to-earthedness you exhibit in your posts speaks volumes as to the gentleness and warmth of your character.

A wave and "thanks" from Nova Scotia, across the Atlantic to Ireland as you continue your tour. :-)

Hey Jorge, How long are you in Dublin for! I have been living here all my life, will you be heading out to the penninsula of Howth at all.

~Karen~ said...

In that kind of atmosphere, I'd have to ask if Mr. Eko is nearby!


www.kate06.skyblog.com said...

Oh why don't you stay I'm going to go to Ireland in 2 weeks =(
I won't see you ='( *Crying*

Hope you had a good time over there =)

Big kisses from France, Eva

His whole mind was flooded with fear.free shipping shoes He was afraid that she might have found someone new or no longer had the same feelings anymore..... For once, he felt the fear of losing someone.
As it was Christmas eve, the line was quite hard to get through, especially an overseas call. He tried again and again, never giving up. Finally, he got through......precisely at 1200 midnight.

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.
