Rio’s Cornertime With Kismet
<The Camera focuses on the small form of Rio standing in a corner looking incredibly pissed off. She and Kismet seem to be in an argument about something. We hear a brief snippet of Kismet saying “I will destroy you”, before turning towards the camera and placing a forced smile on her face.>
Oh we’re on the air already. My, someone forgot to inform me of that little tidbit. Welcome to a new Cornertime ladies and gentlemen. With me today is Rio a.k.a Riordan. Rio has been a poster on this board for some time. Until very recently she was very shy and sedate. Something or Someone has changed all of that.
Welcome Rio, and thank you for agreeing to be interviewed. Why are you in the corner today and who sent you here?
I thought it was for flirting with your husband.....
<Edited out Kismet’s “You know Damn well that you weren’t supposed to say that you little *&&^&^%^%76%,.” rant. Kismet then gives a small laugh and turns away from Rio toward s the camera again.>
Don’t be silly darling Rio. You know that I do not mind anyone flirting with my husband…Let’s move on to the rest of the interview shall we? You have been a member of this board longer than most people realize. Tell us how you found this wonderful community, and why you stayed.
Simple, I watched Temptation Island and thought it sucked....I discovered
Off-Topic and became enthralled in the Monkeyboy Island saga. I intended to
always lurk, but I needed pavement.
I can show you some pavement. Hahahaha Tell us who are your favorite posters and why?
Ah! Such an unfair question. Would you answer this? The shorter list would be my least favorite. The people I am most fond of already know and I trust they wouldn't need to be mentioned by name (especially the one whose wife is interviewing me).
<Kismet leans in and whispers something to Rio whose eyes widen. >
I will mention two for the sake of your interview: Sir Erist, he has a gift for making the day brighter. He never fails to make me smile. And shakes, I am still a fan. Disregarding LC and shakes(blows)vivor (have never been overly concerned with either), I have always been impressed and entertained with his summaries, posts and writings.
What do you love/hate most about this community?
I love the people and the dynamics of different personalities on the boards.
I dislike conflict and have mainly tried to avoid it thus far. That may
Let’s hope that you never even have to avoid it again. You seem kind of shy on the boards, and yet in chat you are a crazy woman. Why the different personas?
I wouldn't say shy, but perhaps reserved. I am normally more the type to
stand back an observe rather than participate. Helps to keep me from putting
my foot in my mouth, and I do that often enough as it is. In chat I feel as
if I am with friends. I am more comfortable just being myself.
You are one of three Lisa's and some people get you and Roni mixed up in chat. What is the best way to tell you apart.
You can't tell Roni and me apart, we're twins, right?
<Rio winks at Roni, who is standing in another corner with what looks like a rhinocerous and a Genie>
No fraternizing with the other penitents now. Can you tell us more about the secret Lisa's Society? Lisapooh wasn't necessarily forthcoming...
Only three? Surely there are more. There are always more. Secret society?
Don't know anything about it. <Rio looks over shoulder, up towards ceiling,
combing fingers through hair...> I have no idea what you are talking about.<grin>
How did you become a chat goddess? What exactly does that mean?
Title given by Idiotcowboy (thanks!). I'll never tell. <Rio blows a kiss to cowboy in the camera. Kismet glares at Rio and raises an eyebrow.>
You will not tell me? Are you certain??? Because I have a source that…
Due to my resident status, I have tried to be helpful in the bar. Answer questions, pass messages, etc.
Oracle would likely have been more appropriate, but my ego likes goddess better.
How did you pick your online name?
And ItzLisa2 would have been accepted? (I actually tried Lisapooh, and it said it was already taken! How weird is that?) I make a hobby of finding unusual names. I will not name any children I have a name as common as mine (#2 most common girl's name in the US in 1970), yet neither will I name them Moon Unit. I just happened to find it the day I registered here. And as it turns out, I think Rio suits me well.
Your husband also reads and posts on the board. How do you feel about that?
In a way it is good. He certainly understands now why I spend so much time here. In another way, I am selfish and don't want to share.
What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
I am very boring and not given to insanity. I have never done anything crazy. And keep your mouth shut, Merrick.
My husband has a crush on you. Should I worry?
Of course not, sweetie. <Rio pats Kismet's hand and gives a wink at Pen in the camera>
Seriously, I cannot compete with the beautiful Kismet, yet I cannot leave him alone. He is simply irresistable.
What is something unusual that you just can/cannot do.
This is not unusual, but I am a wonderful cook. However, GRITS (girls raised in the South) only learn to cook food that will give you a coronary at the table. So, feel free to come to dinner, but I'm not paying your
cardiologist's bill. I cannot sing. I cannot carry a tune in a bucket. Dogs not only howl, they cry if I sing.
If there anything else that we should know about you? What are your pet
I have plenty of pet peeves, and of course can't think of any right now. I
will tell you that I am a smart-ass. And I don't say even half of what I
Thank you Riordan, for the interview. You may go back to your corner now. This concludes this segment of Cornertime with Kismet. Stay tuned next week for more..
