Ring Ring. "Hello." 'SAFAREE!!!!'
May 28th, 2011. 5.59am GMT. I spoke to Safaree Samuels!!!
Dee (@BossBarb) and I had been calling and calling to no avail. Busy tone. Voice mail. Ring with no answer. Over 24hrs. She had been saying for ages she was going to bed but was still up tweeting. My Saturday plans were up in the air so getting up early was a myth. My internet had been fxcking up all day, I missed the DIOE premier *sniff sniff CRIIIIIIIIIIES*, couldn't load twitter and my phone was acting bookie. For whatever reason, Masha'Allah, the hour before, everything suddenly seemed to function again.
@SuperStarStorme: @BossBarb Yo, you're obviously not gona sleep lol jump on Skype lets call SB hahaha"
@BossBarb: RT @SuperStarStorme: BossBarb Yo you're obviosly not gona sleep lol jump on Skype lets call SB hahaha< chileee im theeere tryng now ¬_¬
Dee and I jumped on Skype lol-ing about how much we had been calling. Dee's call list was maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad! And we just kept calling, with no real belief that we'd actually get through, just a bright hope that maybe this time we would. I called. Voicemail. I called. Busy signal. I called. It rang! Busy signal. I called. It rang. Voicemail. Depression.com. I've never felt such a rollercoaster of emotions. Dee was like she's gonna keep trying too so we conference called on Skype. We heard ringing. Again.
Dee: Is that you?
Me: No it's you.
Dee: Oh ok
Dee: We're from the UK! Me: *screams*
And that's how it happened. Random. Surprising. Perfect. First time we'd tried the conference call together to a non-skype phone and we got through straight away! We were DIED!! I mean DEAD!! PAM PAM! Nearly 9mins we were on the phone with him for. It was sooooooooooo amazing. We couldn't believe we actually got through to him. One of the first things he said was "I know ya'll can't believe someone actually picked up." LOL We we're crying and laughing and screaming. Safaree was cracking jokes, asking us where we're from, showed us mad love, followed us on twitter, read our timelines - it was just mad! I won't transcribe it here 'cause it feels personal. It wasn't a ustream moment for a reason, you know? Just know it made our week/month/year! We just kept thanking him for all he does and oh, *sighamese twins* he was the sweetest!
Thank God Dee recorded it cause I was too gone out my head to remember to do that LOLOLOL That was truly a Moment 4 Martha-funking LIFE!And I'm sooooooooooo glad I had someone to share it with. That was God working in that mysterious way again Beleedat 'cause Dee & I only started talking randomly the other day!
He made us a Jim'll-Fix-It promise too, and if it happens like I pray it will I swear I will log out of life cause I will DIE!!
LOVE YOU SAFAREE!!!! THANK YOU!!!xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
And S/O to everyone else that got through to night! And to those who didn't keep trying, it's worth it! xo
