A blog by Jorge Garcia.

Monday, August 25, 2008


When I plan my own trips to California I usually have to rent a car. And to save money I went with a "cheaper" company. You quickly notice the little things that the less expensive companies do (or don't do) so that they can actually charge a hundred dollars less a week for the same car. 
For example not having air conditioning in the office. Which brings me to the shuttle. It's out of focus but, check out the seat on the right. 
Now this is just one of many seats on this bus that had a ring of sweat (We're going with sweat. Please say "it's sweat." I mean even if it isn't sweat, say "it's sweat" because I can't imagine how I would handle anything grosser than a sweat stain on a seat.) I blame the (no) air-conditioning. 
And I went with my parents to Little Saigon and was browsing the aisles. Um, is this candy?

Tuna fish, how could you not like it?! :D

Jodi said...

Jorge, it is sweat, don't worry...just sweat. It is just that hot in there.

That candy...gross!

Julia said...

I feel sorry for the seat... And that candy, eww. How stupid do you have to be to make candy with tuna fich taste!? :O I wonder who buys that.

Apex Zombie said...

I suppose it'd be similar to crab candy, only less crabby, more fishy.

redelf said...

First EEWWWW!!!!

Second EEEWWWW!!!!

Melissa Markham said...

I like Tuna fish...just not sure I want it in a candy...

As to the stain...well, I don't think it's sweat, but more likely a soda spill...yeah, that's it....soda...sure!

Honeybell said...

Um, that is totally NOT SWEAT. Maybe it's the result of someone who has eaten the fish candy?

Dan said...

It could be from a roof leak, right? A very, very unfortunate roof leak...

Topanga said...

Wee wee. Not sweat.

Once I was flying home from Florida and my seat was soaking wet when I got on the plane. Standing in the aisle blocking traffic, unwilling and unable to sit down, I turn to the flight attendant and asked her WTH was I suppose to do on the 4 hour flight between Orlando and Halifax. Just sit there in somebody else's puddle, getting my arse wet? She assured me it was "just water" (yea... right.. because I'm "just stupid" enough to believe that), took the seat cover off leaving the saturated foam rubber behind (How is a seat cushion suppose to serve as a flotation device if it can hold so much liquid?). Then she piled on heaps of airline blankets to provide a buffer zone. It did work pretty well but by the end of the trip, when I finally stood up to disembark, I did feel that a bit of dampness had indeed managed to seep it's way through to my very own butt-cheeks. I was not a happy camper but I was so relieved to get off the damn plane I didn't stop to complain.

You've been busy! Good luck with the move and starting back to work... and heartiest of congratulations on the ALMA.

However, I think the Emmy nomination process should be overhauled. How it was that you were not considered for "The Beginning of the End" I will never understand! Maybe because Hurley is often the comic relief, people don't see you as the fine dramatic actor you are.

Anyway, ease into the re-entry into the reality of your job... and please share a non-spoiler tid-bit now and again?

: ) P

Irishcoda said...

It's just sweat, really, just sweat but...you didn't sit there did you?

insaknitty said...

it's not candy! :) it's like the tuna version of beef jerky - tuna jerky? they just like to wrap it in shiny wrappers and put them in a plastic tub.

Unknown said...

Maybe it's like Swedish Fish?

Unknown said...

are you sure its not your own sweat ??
jaja, just kidding Jorge, and good luck on Season 5, i´ll be waiting for this new season, i believe had to be spectacular... regards!!

lostinphilly said...

Rain forest sweat!! That tuna candy is just freaky! Anyway, glad to see you're back.

Merujo said...

Mmmm, the sweet flavor of tuna!

Last time I was in Thailand, I saw these cuttlefish on a stick that were covered in a variety of sugary substances and sold as sweet snacks in a classy little department store. Some were just sugar-coated. Some had honey and nuts, and others were dipped in chocolate. Yep. Little squids on a stick, dipped in chocolate. Mmmmm, now that's fish-a-licious!

Bethany James Leigh Shady said...

you failed to mention the fact that the car sounded like the entire bottom of it was going to drop out every time we rolled over a pebble.

Nikki said...

I am really hoping that is sweat. the alternatives are just...eeeesh. I have noticed when I go to stores with alot of Asian items, that there are a great deal of those items in shiny wrapping. I usually just look at the pictures and try and decipher what the hell is under all that wrapping. I am scared to death of anything with pictures of fish. My friend eats these freeze dried little fishy things that look like guppies. *blech* She tried to get me to try them. No way, no how, no where. ever.

Mom2haylil said...

Yay! So glad you are back, although I am sure with being back to work it will be harder to keep up. Still glad to hear from you.

WendyWings said...

It's like fish biscuits but not.
That is the mother of all "sweat" marks.

Unknown said...

It's like which is the lesser of two evils? If it IS sweat then it's butt sweat - and copious amounts of it. Hmm butt sweat versus mystery fluid (potentially bodily) - equally gross... seems like a moot point to me!

James Hernandez said...


Sweat it is! A few years back a cologne company was marketing sweat based cologne. I don't know if they could have handled this much sweat though.

Unknown said...

Oh my god..
Is this really my hero Jorge's blog?? I can't believe this.

First of all, I really liked your act and your character on LOST.

When I was working in Korea, CTO of one of my company looked similar to you. I really liked him, and like you too.

Regarding that seat, I think it is 'sea water' stain. I believe 'Charlie' was there, waiting for you. :)

Anyway, as one of your big fan, I wish all the best lucks to you. Not by numbers 4 8 15 16 23 42, but by god's bless.

From one Korean in Japan.

TUNA candy? Ewwwwwww!

Not touching the sweat thing with a ten foot pole.....LOL

Koshka42 said...

Eeew. To both photos. Sometimes the extra cash is just worth it.

Chelsea said...

ew, Ew, EW!

Why does that seat remind me of Monica Lewinsky?

If you want to seriously get into the RC helicopter hobby, then a glow engine chopper is perfect for realism, building, maintaining and flying! You will be able to personalize your chopper exactly the way you want it, like hover time and rotor speed. Once you get a feel for your helicopters, and have everything adjusted perfectly, your rc airplane will fly just the way you want it and not the way some factory decided it should. Vantage's compact size and tail-light feature, in combination with its powerful C4 led, make it the perfect tactical hands-free light for firefighting personnel and other first responders who require lighting tools with extreme brightness and long run times, said wolf-eyes light Chief Operating Officer Ray Sharrah. Its integrated bracket design makes it extremely easy to use - firefighters can attach or remove the tacticale flashlight in seconds without the need for tools, and rotate it 360 degrees on the swivel clamp

it reminds me of the shuttle I had to take at LAX! I really do hope that was sweat!! Nasty either way though

Who doesn't like their candy to taste like tuna? That is the only kind I eat :-D

rakel said...

Oh dang, didn't you have Tuna Fish candy growing up? I love to eat it with candy pickles.

*gags* :P

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.
