yeah so i realized we're all <s>incestuous whores</s> very friendly people who like to talk to each other and sometimes we talk to each other on the phone! so i wonder: have you talked to people from the internet on the phone that you haven't met in person? if so, whom?

all my internet phone conversations have been from eoff and they've all been with ladies and the ladies have all called me rather than me calling them :smug: :ezpimp: :jokey: :otherrelevantsmilies:

said ladies are (in chronological order) freya, jojee, rye, shorty, tifa's boobs. i hope i'm not forgetting anyone because good lord that would be embarrassing

i have met sarah but talked to her on the phone first.

i know some of you are much more whore-ish than i am so LIST SOME NAMES MOTHERSMURFERS


hahahah : ezpimp : turns into a cat that's great

I use to text a few people from here rather frequently, and I think I've even spoken with Freya on the phone in the past. I know I've skyped with her and Markus D., but that was years ago when I was way more active on the internet than I am now. I went on a semi rode trip in 2011 and spent most of the drive on the phone with a friend that I met on the internet. I convinced the poor dear that the ghost in her house was going to get her.

Hmm...lemme think. I can remember talking on the phone with Shoeberto, Justy, foa, rubah and her bf. I am probably forgetting some people.

I feel weird about talking on the phone under any circumstances, so no. I get all shy, and my fauex American accent emerges. Horrific. :D

I once rang M4tt pretending to be animal control, saying his neighbours had complained about noise so I was coming to take away his dog :D

I'm not good with talking on the phone either. Also long-distance calls. I did talk to Shorty a good deal on the phone before I met her, though.

I don't think I've ever talked on the phone with another EoFFer without also having met them at some point. Not super into phone calls tbh.

I have been on the phone with one or two of you lot.

BoB, smitten, Zeldy, Jiro. Lenna.

I think that's it.

I don't mind phonecalls. I am super nervous at first, but I ease into natural conversation eventually. xD

Let's see...

Phone: Freya, Psychotic, NCG, Shorty, Happy Noodle Boy, Laddy, Denmark, Jowy. Hmm. I feel like I'm forgetting someone.

Some of those conversations were pretty brief/for practical reasons.


Text: Freya, NCG, Laddy, Clo, Shorty, Denmark, Jowy. Again, feel like I'm missing someone.

NCG sends me picture messages. Of what, you ask? I'll never tell. ;)

I've only spoken to two or three internet people on an actual phone and none of them were from EoFF.

I occasionally send random whatsapp messages to Jiro or Iceglol or Shauna.

Of course, there is also Eoff Skype Cru. We sometimes have group voice chats that I think should happen more often and with more peeps!

I feel weird about talking on the phone under any circumstances, so no.

This for me as well. I've had two internet friends try to call my mobile before, out of the blue, and both times I just sat there staring at it like a deer in the headlights before eventually rejecting the call ^^'
Same with Skype where a few have done that.

I'd say give me some warning first, but that would just give me more time to worry about it anyway.

I'm just really not good at random chat calls. In round table stuff like forums I am comfortable chipping in, but am not very good at 1-to-1 conversation, I don't know what to say. The phone brings out the worst in this as it's instant and you can't even grin at them awkwardly or busy yourself with taking a sip from your drink or whatever, it's just "{long awkward silence} soooo......"

Shauna

I will phone you and be all like "Hey Parker!". The rest of the conversation will be awkward silence until one of us have to go do something. :3

More people should call me or something. I don't mind, even though I'm probably boring to talk to. I've spoken to several people over the phone from EoFF/Internet.

Anyhoo, I've spoken on the phone to HNB, Jiro and Loony BoB.

If you're British then I probably have spoken to you.

Perhaps my favourite was my 30 second phone call to dear Jojo, however. I think we talked about eggs.

Back in my chat heyday I used to talk to various people on the phone.

Raistlin
03-10-2013, 11:00 PM
Geez, let's see if I can list them all: Emerald Aeris, Jojo, Lynx, Kalilung, krissy, Rye, Freya, Shorty, foa, Clo, and Boobies (though she forgot about me :mad2:). I feel like I'm missing some. Oh, and I did talk to PG briefly one time when I called Lynx and he (PG) happened to be there. That was... an interesting experience.

I've exchanged texts and voice-chatted with Shlup, though I don't remember any phone calls.

Haha, one time I messaged Laddy on Facebook and asked him to call my phone cos I lost it. xD We hadn't spoken on the phone at this point!


Oh yeah. I've talked to Raistlin on the phone.

I can't keep track of you all. You're like fucking rabbits.

over ten, less than twenty. i'm gonna call someone right now.

someone who DOESN'T ANSWER HIS GOD DAMN PHONE

PG

oh trout yeah i briefly talked to PG when we were coordinating finding each other in nyc. then my phone died and i had forgotten my charger. lolz. also briefly talked to JKTrix for the same reason. faris did we talk on the phone too i don't remember

those were all brief though. the ones in my first post were legitimate conversations, every single one of them

I thought this thread was going to be about using google to send messages to people's phones or something. Because apparently you can do that.

But yeah I've met a lot of people from around the internets in general, and I would text a ridiculous amount of people every day and occasionally talk on the phone even though I hate talking on the phone. Hopefully that pattern will resume when I escape this facility >.>

This is surprisingly true. I can't even begin to tell you how true. He just calls me up, leaves a voicemail asking me to show his students how to use a blade, calling me a turk and generally being offensive. In return I phoned him up and left a voicemail the other day declaring him to be Mr Eko.

DK once called me and left a full on 15 minute voicemail ranting about how I sold him a table with snot on the bottom. I was on a date at the time, it was fairly hilarious. I ended up laughing so hard I had to play the voicemail on speaker phone for my date to hear, no wonder we never lasted very long...

Daniel Towns has had me on the phone demanding answers before, not my phone though he had me on Baloki's phone.

Agrias had several huge conversations with the british EoFF crew well us and TUH. Who has also spoken to me before on the phone.

A fair few other british eoff members have spoken to me on the phone and more have spoken to me on XBL or Skype or back in the days of PG's Ventrillo server we'd hang out there and chat.

Parker Whatsapps me a fair bit. This is how certain stories about myself and certain admins are born.

If others wish to have my number so that they may call me, leave me abusive voicemails or whatsapp me senseless messages or nudes like Parker does. PM me, it's fine.

People leave their phones on on a date these days and even listen to voicemails? I thought they were kind of like job interviews and therefore a big no-no :p (I wouldn't know, never done dates, would rather just make friends naturally and develop things from there. I'm weird though.)
Well if they can't take a voicemail about table-snot being played around them they probably weren't worth keeping anyway :D

Steve
03-11-2013, 03:33 AM
When I say date, we're talking the girl came to spend the weekend at mine. I ignored the call coming through (we were somewhat occupied at the time ;) if you get what I mean) but since at the period of time in my life I was job hunting pretty extensively I figured a voicemail would be to do with a prospective interview, not DK trolling the shit out of me, when I listened to it and began laughing my ass off it would have been rude not to share what was so funny.

That being said; if I go out on an actual "date" date, the whole world can go to hell in a hand basket before my phone gets answered, or taken off silent.

03-11-2013, 03:59 AM
faris did we talk on the phone too i don't remember

Don't think so, we mostly texted. If we did it was "where are you? oh see you soon kbai"-type thing. I'm really phone shy, especially back then xD

Actually, I'm hopelessly awkward on the phone. Dunno why, as I'm okay enough in real life. Just, phones make me come off as scatter-brained and a bit of a mouth-breathing imbecile. :lol:
