Fingerprints & George Clooney!

This morning Patrick and I went down to the USCIS office in Cincinnati to get fingerprinted for our I800a application.  Our appointment was for 9am but we got there early hoping that they would take us sooner because Patrick had a 10am meeting for work.   The women in the office were very nice and took us right away.  Patrick had a small cut on his thumb from putting drywall up this weekend in the basement but after looking at it under a magnifying glass they decided it wouldn’t interfere with his fingerprint (they hoped).  We were in and out of the office in about 10 minutes and it was such a great experience.  It was so nice to go in and have the people who work there seem so happy and nice!

On our way back to our cars we saw George Clooney in Fountain Square filming a scene for his new movie.  It was pretty cool to see everything and George Clooney was right there in front of us!  Maybe 20 feet away at most.  We couldn’t stay long and didn’t actually see them shoot anything but it was still very cool.

All in all, it was a great morning!
