How do you like me now bitches?

I am better than all of you. From now on, please address me as Dame Pru. For I, Dame Pru of humble BarrenAlbion, earlier stood a mere 3 feet away from the good Queen of England herself. Her helicopter landed on a rugby pitch next to the building where I work, so naturally we took a few minutes to go peer at the old bag. One's motorcade passed within feet of us, with the Queen clearly visible and waving, with the rather dim-witted and demented Phillip drooling beside her. I couldn't get my camera phone to work when she was directly in front of me, so I only have a photo of the car driving toward us. My colleague has a lovely profile shot of the Queen, which is essentially composed of a rather large hat.

I'm no monarchist, in fact I think they are a waste of space. However, this makes my rather terse, nay, nearly non-existent list of famous people that I have seen in person more numerous by one, and could not be more random if I tried. In chronological order (earliest to most recent):

1) Jarvis Cocker, lead singer of one of my favourite bands, Pulp.

2) Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, aka Prisoner Number 93A234, Simon Adebisi from Oz. Easy Lumi, down girl. For those taking notes, he is h-o-t. Yum.

3) The Queen

Now...where can a girl find Bea Arthur...

I bow down, seeing the queen must make you a duchess or something!

I have no great/exciting celebrities, only lower rung people.

I always knew there was something special about you. And now my suspicions have been confirmed! I saw the guy who played Ira on Mad About You in the subway a few weeks ago. I thought about saying hello, but decided on a "We're both famous so let's not bother"-nod of acknowledgment. I figured that we could both save the energy for our fans.

~bowing at your feet~

Can I touch you?

Who CARES about the Queen... the dude who played Adebisi?!@! Now THAT... is worth a title of some sort... maybe... Prison Bitch?? Oh... and did you ask him how he used to keep that white beenie on his shiny bald head? Velcro?? Always wondered about that...

T said...

uh - you don't think the Queen is hot? What kind of weirdo are you?

Panda said...

Ugh! The Queen is soooo passe. I've MET and BEEN INTRODUCED TO Princess Di. Yeh. How d'you like them apples!

AND there's only 5 degrees of separation between me and Kevin Bacon.

Hah.

As we like to say in Australia: suffer in yer jocks.

Umm, I once saw local Channel 4 news sports caster Marc Rosen in the Mall of America. Umm.

Haha! Actually, my family is quite fancy too. When they lived in Scotland, the Queen (and the Drooler) visited my sister's school for its 500th birthday and my sister got to give them a tour! And another time the Queen was in town attending some church service and my little brother gave her flowers. It made the front page of the Scotsman! So bow to me!

Is she a wrinkly as she looks?

I spotted the guy who played the son on the british sitcom May to December whilst on a walk in the Cotswolds.
I've also seen a few choice celebs in AA (won't name names though!).
I love that about UK, especially London. So many celebs to spot.

I touched(!) Gavin Rossdale at a concert. He is also h.o.t.

I also worked as a nanny at a photo shoot with Jenna Elfman. She was nice.

Living in Los Angeles for a few years provided me with lots of celebrity sightings. But I never saw anyone as fancy as the Queen!

Mony said...

Wow.
The Queen! For all you know, she may now be typing away on her blog about how she saw YOU!
You did get a little excited, no?

Bea Arthur resides in a wicker-filled beach house in Miami, silly, with her friends Rose and Blanche.

The Queen.... Impressive....

I was on MTV with Nelson (yup. Matthew and Gunnar) They were guest VJ's and were filming at the union when I was in college, so I was standing behind them.

It was all downhill after that...

All the americans won't care about this, but I saw Vanessa Feltz yesterday. And my husband saw Dermot O'Leary. And for all you poor Americans out there, he is h-o-t.

Millie said...

But what about her ipod??? What was she listening to under that big hat of hers?
