He May or May Not Be Back

Who has two thumbs and got to spend time with the Prime Minister and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger? *Points thumbs at self* This Girl!!!

We got an email today from the Government Whips office that said Ahhhh-nold would be stopping by Conservative Headquarters today and MPs were welcome to attend. My boss decided that my American-ness was more than enough to justify bringing me along despite the fact that I was not invited. We stood around with lots of other MPs who has conveniently left their staff at the office and I was feeling a little conspicuous but it was worth it. We didn’t get to take individual pictures with them but it was still a really cool time!

PM David Cameron and the Gubernater:

Close up of Arnold:

Proof that I was RIGHT THERE!! (He’s the head in the pic below) He made EYE CONTACT with me. Twice. For Real. All I could think of was that movie poster with the laser coming out if his eye!

It was a pretty cool day.

    That is really cool! You should have waltzed your Texas self up to him and introduced yourself!!

    You never know who will meet. It reminds me of the Dr. Seuss book. “Oh, the places you will go”. Thanks for taking us along.

  6. Dad says:

    Why didn’t you just go over to him and kick him in the butt for being such a sorry conservative. That would have gotten his attention!

    Arnold! I can’t stand it! You keep meeting all of these PEOPLE! If you ever get to meet ‘The Doctor’ I will die. Yes, die. And it will be your fault. No, actually, I’ll blame Mike. He’s the reason you’re there so he gets the blame. As Charlie Brown says, “Aaarrgh!”
