It probably doesn't matter anymore, but just for the record, the translation is "I saw that you have called me"... methinks.
"I saw that you were calling me."

She was talking on another line at the same time.

I saw she was calling me, but I was on the other line. Call (me) again if you want to.

Please correct me.

Чьё пиво пьёшь, того пой песню.
It looks like an occasionalism, quite odd and it doesn't sound well in Russian, although is grammatically correct. At least, пиво should be ruled out.

An equivalent proverb would be Кто платит, тот заказывает музыку.

I guess it's OK to explain Russian grammar in English, just as in any other language, making it more accessible to non-native speakers.

I wouldn't consider Google or any other Internet stats in this regard. The correct form is Я вижу привидения.

Living creature or not - refers to the school grammar only which was made simple on purpose.
