So the day started out with a few of us meeting at Marble Arch, to assist Doctors of the World in canvassing neighbourhoods regarding their free health clinic services. We were supposed to be also looking out for "the guy" while we were volunteering. I had a pretty good response with that, several people were very excited to hear about the services. One guy on the street even chatted me up about how much he needed them.
Turns out that the guy that was chatting me up, was "the guy". He revealed some horrific things about BB, and said that "songbird" was keeping in contact with him. I have two longish clips concerning the guy but I think marklowkey has a shorter better quality one on qik. He told us to find a dead drop at the Little Golden Dogs at the park, which I totally forgot about till now.
Then we had to make a mad dash to HQ in time for the skype call with Ian Briggs. We were supposed to wear black masks to cover our faces, but it was so hot, I was just like eff it. I thought Ian was just going to do a PR spiel on how we were all misguided, but he pulled a fast one by holding Ann Marie hostage for the contract and any documents we had. (I got to throw in a few barbs--and even texted him that cyngs and team america was going to take him down)
We tried to develop a few strategies but some random dude kept derailing the conversation to irrelevant points, at which point I kinda gave up on trying to formulate a plan. Eventually it was decided that we were going to hand everything over minus one page. Of course I insisted on taking pictures of the contract first, which I can't imagine WHY COPIES HADNT BEEN MADE UP TO THIS POINT.
Ian Briggs came in an SUV, with his goons, with Ann Marie. I threw gummy bears at the car. While others worked on the exchange I hopped into the SUV to check to see if it really was Ann Marie and not a ploy, it was. Briggs left and I threw gummy bears at the car again.
We hightailed it back to HQ. Ann Marie was freaking out about the contract being gone and about David Nsofu, wanting to know what happened to him. I missed a portion of this because I was trying to finally get into chat to talk to you peeps.
Anyways we were deployed out to find remaining evidence about Nsofu's whereabouts using the nokia point and click. I found it rather boring grunt work and a lot of walking and wish I had stayed back at HQ to coordinate the forces.
BB's were out on patrol. Some passed by asking to take my picture. I gave them the finger and turned my head, but they already saw my face on skype, so whatev.
Somehow we got access to a babbage video of David saying how much he failed. It was pretty emotional, and a few of us cried. It was also a bit of a thrill to hear crickets again.
One of the camera's led to a site left by Jack. I'm really not sure about the details on that one. But we tried to figure out a password. Then someone found a package left by Jack. It contained--what else--images of kittens. And some letters in the text below (just random quotes) contained spades which when deciphered read out, "Spades is a genius". This turned out to be the password that led to a video. I really think everyone needs to see the video for themselves. I've posted a little bit on qik about it, but it's really important you see the high quality version. I will pester Marcus and Brian for the link.
Pretty much we were pretty stunned by it and took awhile to recover. Then Ann Marie said some closing remarks to rally the troops for next week.
I found most the day pretty frenetic with no time to catch our breathes. It was fun, but mad. And wished Team America was with me.
The party was great. Met a lot of behind the scenes people. Apparently, to the behind the scenes people, I'm "the celebrity" as one person put it--which I personally find too ironic. And like 10 people asked, has she met Spades yet? And then broke out in evil laughter.
And got to party with Marcus, Brain, Nadirah and Ann Marie, but most importantly the British Contingent.
