i just want to share my story from last night...
so first of all, i'm a HUGE Shannyn Sossamon fan. and when i learned that she would be coming to Hawaii (where she was born, and even has a bit of Hawaiian blood in her!) as a guest DJ at an event, i screamed with joy and had to get my hands on tickets to see her!
it turns out that my coworker at J.Crew (who is also a club promoter) would be one of the hosts at this event. and further talking to him about it, i learned that HE was the one who would be picking her up from the airport....!!!!! i almost died when i found this out.
so i begged him to hook me up with VIP tickets and get to meet her and everything (as i literally jumped around our store with joy), and he of course kindly obliged.
so last night, me and my other friends show up to the event, have a couple drinks, watched the fashion shows and other DJs playing as we impatiently waited for Shannyn to arrive. my friend later texts me that she was running late and had to catch another flight because she was caught up doing a movie event in the mainland. so we continued to wait, and soon made our way up to the VIP lounge where Shannyn would only be spinning. we made ourselves at home RIGHT in front of the DJ booth, where there was a lounge bed that we could relax on and continue to wait as other people were DJing in the mean time and other guests started to make their way up to the lounge as well....
a little more than an hour passes (it's already around 1am), and we just figure that since she's a busy celebrity, of course she is going to arrive fashionably late. i then text my promoter friend and ask whether Shannyn is still coming or not... and it turns out that she completely missed her flight and was not coming at all!!!!
how sad is that? we were completely devastated.
i guess that's the end of my story. haha :-(
