Happy Octopus Day!

Yeah I'd never heard about it either. I think the dog made it up.


Updates about Hanna said...

Happy Octopus Day, Jorge!

Julie said...

My cat Ivan used to have that exact toy! Lol

lisagh said...

Octopus Day can be traced back to the 18th century when villagers used to samba in the streets during the mid-April full moon in celebration to welcome the octopus back from their spring spawning.

What a glorious time it was. So glad to see you and Nunu upholding the tradition!

Penny said...

Not such a happy day for the octopus!

PoshDrosofila said...

Jorge, you are the funniest guy ever!
Hi from Canada!

Sarah Elizabeth said...

I like your dog, and I will rememder octopus day for years to come.

@bloggerbrasilis said...

Hello Jorge!

I like your work in Lost,

I am a brazilian blogger,

My name is Luis Hipolito @ The Blogger,


redelf said...

We celebrate Octopus Day but with a green one. We also celebrate the much misunderstood "Bark at the next door Dobermans even though they could eat you in one bite until they go crazy Day."

Eugen Caitaz said...

You have a very good dog!

Catherine said...

It seems as if you dog likes to eat everything. ;)
Btw. Heard that you will be in Munich next week. Hope you enjoy your stay in Germany!

Unknown said...

Again... LMAO!!

Nikoli said...

What Penny said. I don't think that Octopus is happy.

Tammy said...

We celebrate the Invisible Fence Being off and the Garbage Can Full Day.

It's quite the party, confetti everywhere, plastic shredded, and packages torn. We don't ofer food, just the guests of honor get the food-they clean the food quite well, its the party goodies that bother me.
BTW-I HATE this Holiday almost as much as The Toilet Lid Is Open, Happy Hour!

fernando said...

Greetings from Brazil and congrats for your blog and artistic work!
; )

ValMo said...

Hmm...This looks suspiciously like "Happy Easter" with a different "creature". I wouldn't believe a word she says. ;-)
Happy Octopus Day to you, too!

Heather Cherry said...

The Nuners sounds a bit like a weedeater.

aims said...

Okay - your dog? is even funnier than you!

Ralph Roberts said...

Okey, I'm sensing someone doesn't like octopuses.. or bunnies.
From now on Octopus Day will definitely be a tradition here in Sweden!

Cat said...

Seriously awesome. I wish my dog would play with different toys. Nope. Just the same toy for her. Makes a similar noise, but bigger, because she is a bigger dog. HAHA. I am lame.

Please Type Legibly said...

And a very Happy Octopus Day to you, Beth, and Nunu.....Sushi all around!

iaintnopeterpan said...

Must be a Kailua dog thing, my dog is doing the same thing with her "JubJub" neopet toy as I type this.

Lynn Faruque said...

She's way more active than my doxie! I love it.

Much as I love the show, I start getting bummed about now, because I know that the final episode for the season is soon.

I love how Hurley asks the questions and IS the audience. He will ask something and we at home will be thinking "Yeah, what ABOUT that?!"


Mother of the Wild Boys said...

Zabarov said...

Oh, Nunu -- you have many issues to work out. Poor you.

She's so adorable, with those giant ears and that body that's so small it's almost invisible.

mabochda said...

be glad it wasn't a box of crackers! my daughter left a box of crackers on the floor by her bed. the dog thought he had a prize :) needless to say we had a tug of war with the box. i won but had to get out the vacuum cleaner

Kate said...

The funniest thing is to listen to this video but not watch it. The audio cracks my sh*t up!

~Karen~ said...

Is there a parade for Octopus Day?!

Oh man, I'm so jealous again. Your dog's totally got your back if an octopus decides to comes pay you a visit! When an octopus comes creeping in my house, my dog offers him a drink and a nice fluffy pillow.

Oh, and Happy Octopus day. What's next? Mollusk Of The Year? O.o

sneakers shoes She continued,
"Why...? Don't you need someone to pose as your girlfriend this year?" Then he answered, "No, there is no need for that anymore......"
Before he can continue, he was interrupted, discount nike shoes"Oh yes! Must have found a girlfriend! nike shox r4 You haven't been searching for one for the past years, right?" The man looked up, as if he has struck gold, his face beamed and looked directly at the drunken girl. tn dollarHe replied, "Yes......you are right! I haven't been looking for anyone for the past years."
With that, the man darted across the floor and out the door, cheap nike shoesleaving the lady in much bewilderment. He finally realized that he has already found his dream girl, and she was.....the Vancouver girl all along! The drunken lady has said something that awoken him.
All along he has found his girl.nike tennis shoes That was why he did not bother to look further when he realized she was not coming back. It was not any specific girl he was seeking! cheap nike shoxIt was perfection that he wanted, and yes.....perfection!!
Relationship is something both parties should work on. Realizing that he had let away someone so important in his life, he decided to call her immediately. 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. He confessed his love for her and the girl was moved to tears. nike shoes It seemed that she never got over him! Even after so long, she was still waiting for him, never giving up.
He was so excited to meet her and to begin his new chapter of their lives. He decided to fly to Vancouver to join her.

Two days before he was supposed to fly to Vancouver,cheap puma shoes he received a call from her father. She had a head-on car collision with a drunken driver. nike shox shoes She passed away after 6 hours in a coma.
The guy was devastated, as it was a complete loss. Why did fate played such cruel games with him? He cursed the heaven for taking her away from him, denying even one last look at her! How cruel he cursed! How he damned the Gods...!!nike free shoes How he hated himself....for taking so long to realize his mistake!! That was in 1996.
The moral of this story is :
Treasure what you have...
Time is too slow for those who wait;
Too swift for those who fear;
Too long for those who grief;
Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who love...
Time is Eternity.
For all you out there with someone special in your heart, cherish that person, cherish every moment that you spend together that special someone, for in life, anything can happen anytime. buy shoes onlineYou may painfully regret, only to realise that it is too late.

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.
