LAST EDITED ON 07-15-01 AT 00:55 AM (EST)Ronnet's Cornertime With Kismet
<The first scene we see is the area pan showing a wealth of activity in all of the corners. The overhead camera follows Kismet as she makes her way around the room. Standing in one and dancing to the very bad Cornertime intro music is Ronnet. Kismet begins heading her way.>
As you can see..
<Kismet ducks under a swooping butterfly and then glares at the Ebug corner.>
As You can see, we have a lot of Corner activity going on right now. Today we are going to focus on Ronnet. Roni has been posting on this board from almost the very beginning. She is the new News reporter, a 'bar counselor' to many, and a valued poster to this board.
<Kismet arrives in Roni's corner and they shake hands. Roni stops dancing and both of them sit on their respective barstools. Her timer reads 1:20:37. >
Thank you for the interview Roni. I am surprised to see you in here. You are so rarely naughty that I knew I had better get to you first. So what did the 'good' girl do to land in here. Who would be so mean to you?
<Kismet snickers as she reads that line, knowing it is obviously not true.>
<Roni pouts> Monkeyboy sent me here - one night in the bar, I tied his tail in a knot...
That would do it. Well, I'm glad to see that you are unrepentant. Can you tell us how you found this community and why you stayed among us?
Same old story - SS was closed to new people and I read the posting telling about SB. When I first started here it was under a different name. On my first or second post I was flamed so bad, extra crispy to be exact, I never used that name again. After that, I stayed under the radar, posting wise, for a long time.
I am glad to see that you have come out from your hiding place Roni. So who are your favorite people on the boards?
<Roni grins> Why you of course...
That isn't going to cut it Roni. I have let too many people slide on that answer of late and you aren't going to get away with it.
Everyone is my favorite. Each a unique and wonderful individual. Impossible to pick just a few...
<Kismet adds 3 hours for being so vague and to make an example of Roni for future penitents.>
Where did you get your nickname from?
Nick didn't need it anymore and when I asked if I could use it, he said sure.
Alright Ms. Mystery woman. You are kind of shy in chat sometimes, and at other times you are the life of the party.. What determines your moods? Are you shy in real life?
I'm not shy or quiet. If I'm not saying anything it's because I'm transcribing what everyone else is saying. You never know when that kind of information might come in handy.
Is that how you got the reporter job? I'm only kidding, that's how I got my gig. You are a 'real' reporter for SB. How did that come to pass?
I'm one of those people who read the directions only after I've tried to do something. Well, a few days ago it was pointed out to me that there is a news section on the board . This was after I had already been posting news items under different topics, with wild abandonment for sometime. I think Webby decided to ask me to be a reported with the hope it would restrain me from splatting news items all over the boards.
You are single and we have some very good looking men around here. Would you ever consider having a real relationship with someone you met online?
<Roni blushes, her eyes twinkle> No comment...
<Kismet hums the tune to "Matchmaker" from Fiddler on the roof.>
Speaking of musicals... Rumor has it you are a real life ballerina. Is this true?
Yes, it is true. I was small as a child but I was not allowed to stand on a chair to get things off a shelve. Therefore, I had to go on pointe to reach things.
Tell us about you Roni. What do you like to do besides dance?
One of the things I enjoying most is welding. A joint welded well gives a sense of great accomplishment. This also allows me to contribute something to others - to the greater good so to speak.
Is there something unusual that only you can do?
Well... anything you can do, I can do better. I can do anything better than you.
<Kismet> No you can't
<Roni> Yes I can
<Kismet> No you can't
<Roni> Yes I can, Yes I can, yes I can, yes I can
<Kismet giggles and whispers to Roni "We just put that song in everyone's head. You could make EO status yourself one day.">
Ok, I think that is all I have. Is there anything else you want us to know about you?
I can eat a Tootsie Pop without biting through to the chewy center
Well, if you ever get out of here I will bring you a Tootsie Pop. Thank you for the interview Roni.
<As the cheesy music plays and the credits roll, Roni turns around and resumes dancing in the corner.>
Thank you again for joining us. This concludes this cornertime segment.
