Underwater flight


You can call me Ray, or...*
Atlanta, Georgia, January 2008


I swear he's smiling. I suppose anyone would be happy living in a $250 million state-of-the-art facility, cared for 24/7 by some of the top marine biologists on the planet, staring out all day at thousands of people who adore you.

It's the watery equivalent of a rock star's life. Too bad I lack gills.

Your turn: Life in a bowl. Please discuss.

Wait, I'm not done: Still accepting captions here. And still giving away a free iPod here.

* Does anyone remember the old commercial from which this line is shamelessly cribbed?

I used to live in a small town where everyone knew my business. It was life living in a fishbowl. Now I am in a foreign country where I get to reinvent myself and like the fish--I'm smiling!

I always wanted to do some underwater pictures or the likes. The prob is I dont have a camera for that and there is no sort of aquarium here for fishes unlike at home in Bergen.

He is TOTALLY smiling! :) I needed that this morning! I explained in my newest post.

I looked at "Ray" and he is smiling! How cool is that! I don't know how people deal with living their lives in fishbowls. I think celebrities and political people have it rough...with everyone in their face all the time...and putting their business out in the street - so to speak!

If I were a celeb and had all those people following me around - I think I'd be a very mean nasty person - and probably swinging a baseball bat at a few of them.

I don't recall the commercial - but maybe it wasn't this side of the water..
He is smiling but is he feeling it?
We all need to get out of our bowls occassionally...or we need a rock to hide under....:)

Beautiful pic. I don't know if I'd want to be stared at all day like that, but after working with sharks every day in a law firm, it'd be a welcome change.

Before I saw what you said...I said to myself....'Awwwwww, He Is Smiling'!! He really looks as happy as he can be....That smile is a look of total and complete contentment!
Michele thinks so too, Carmi...And we both LOVE this picture! You had quite a time there, didn't you...!

I don't remember the commercial. However, I do recall a character who said that line frequently: Raymond J. Johnson, Jr. from the David Steinberg Show.
