yesterday at a pet shop in Santa Monica where I get my cats' food . First, I thought I was halucinating when I saw him and it took me a second to realize it was really him. He had his daughters with him. I ignored his bodyguards and said hello Mr. Governor and went up to him to chat. There were 3 big guys in suits snd sunglasses--one inside the store and two outside.
Instead of uprooting his kids from LA and moving them to Sacraemento, just to have to move them back to LA in 3 years, he left the kids in LA and he comes home on weekends. I told him to do Terminator IV.
Funny thing if he was just a movie star he might have told me to get lost, but now he represents the people, he has to be nice , especially since I told him I voted for him. He was still in great shape--arms bigger than mine. But he didn't seem as tall (he's always been listed at 6'2") as I thought. He's the third celebrity I've seen since I've been in LA. in '99 I saw jean-Claude Van Damme in Gold's Gym in Venice, CA and last year I saw the male model Fabio in a restaurant in Sherman Oaks, CA.

Yeah, I know a few folk in the visitor industy who have seen him and say the same -- great shape, but didn't expect him to be so small. But, who's going to tell that to Der Terminator? Ah, international business degree, uber muscles, and more money to back those up? I wouldn't care 'bout my height.
Celebrity sightings a-plenty in Maui (where I heard you can find a Pierce Brosnan shopping at Foodland or Prince jamming w/a local [gulp!] Jawaiian band).
I used to be in awe of celebrity sighting-ness, gawk at 'em and all. Now, I just kinda' take one look, OK, I lied -- a double take, then go on my own merry way. Figure they need to dine, shop, whatever, as others must needs do as well.
