And yes I can't thank you and Blondie enough for letting me join in on watching this... I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to shoot with Gene... first I've seen his work and his stuff is awesome, but then to see HOW he works! Really puts you at ease!! I'll have to contact him and see if he will be at Jr Nationals in June..

And that offer stands, even if last minute and you can go to Jr Nat'ls you have a place to stay and a way to get around! I'm going anyhow and to go and hang with you would be icing on the cake...

I probably need to do that stuff with you to get lower to shape up! I bet it kicks your butt in every sense of the word!

~gymdiva~
03-09-2009, 01:20 PM
ok so while I take a short break from unpacking I'll type about HHH...


first of all, Kim has THE BEST SHOT EVER!!!!!!!!! you'll see when she comes home and starts posting...can I just say how much I wanted to be Britt behind that booth!


anywho, the actual experience of waiting for him to appear was one of the worst ever...I staked me out a spot right up front and Athena, Joel, Colette all were like, don't go anywhere! hahaha...they knew what I was waiting for! but more and more people kept coming up and just creating this mass of people...and it finally got to the point that we were literally stuck against one another like a pack of straws for a good 45min...it wasn't too bad for about the first 20min but as the people kept coming I kept getting pushed further and further up...and some people were just so dumb about it trying to be slick and slip up there...yeah um, no...that's not working for me...and Joel, thank you again for making sure no one cut in front of me again! :o


so he finally gets there and by this point I almost could care less...I just wanted someone to move so I could breathe...I was literally having some shakes at this point b/c it was just not a fun situation...long story short, it took about 10min after his arrival to get the sea of people in line and sorted but I finally got a pic with him...and I think b/c of the situation I was actually able to speak! hahahaha...I put my hand on his arm and started rubbing it and said, I'm so sorry this is such a clusterfuck! he just chuckled and said it's ok! and I thanked him and he said you're welcome and then I bolted the hell out of there so I could breathe again...by this point my blood sugar had dropped and my head was absolutely pounding so Kim and I regrouped and found Kristen and decided coffee outside away from the madness was in order!



he was there on sunday, too, and it was WAY better than saturday...the smaller crowds made for a much better controlled situation...and the three of us were on a coffee break outside when he left and we just stopped and watched him walk away...damn he's hot! and in all seriousness, dave's diet suits him so well...he was looking awesome...probably his best conditioning since he came back from that first quad injury...

**blondie**
03-09-2009, 01:40 PM

03-10-2009, 03:29 PM
staybridge...I've paid upon leaving at a hampton once before but it seemed like everywhere else wanted me to pay then...which was fine b/c then I knew it was taken care of...I guess maybe it prevents people from sneaking in an extra day or not checking out on time?

BEAST MODE
03-10-2009, 03:36 PM
Probably in case you had any extra fees...adult movies, phone, etc. Usually you can't get in your room if you're supposed to be checked out. Happened to me once in Sandusky, OH. Went back to get in our room because we were supposed to be there another day and they'd taken the privilege of checking us out a day early and locking us out of our room.

I think I may try to make a separate thread for the youtube videos b/c I think they're getting lost in this one...I'll do that whenever I get them all uploaded...god bless youtube and their slowass selves ;)




so in summary, this was the best arnold trip EVER! the company was AWESOME (yea kristen!), the events were great, and as always, it was sooooo much fun to meet and meet up with friends within this crazy industry of our's...


but I do have to make a shoutout to "god"...trust me, this person gets that reference...but we were blessed with a very caring and giving person who wasn't able to make the trip and bestowed us with VIP tickets...which is why we actually made the finals shows! although saturday was very much a blur...we were so tired as was evident in our posts...Kim, I probably should have had you tape the two of us then! hahahaha...oy...anywho, god, once again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for turning this weekend into something beyond special...the weekend would have been fun regardless but b/c of you it was unforgettable :)
