RudyRules Cornertime with Kismet
<New cornertime introduction, followed by Kismet smiling into the camera. We see Rudy Rules sitting on his stool facing the corner. The timer reads 02:05:46.>
Thank you for joining us SB community. In the corner today is RudyRules. He is a relative newcomer to SB and save for Market players, he was a relative unknown until shakes cast him for Blowsvivor. He has been a fixture of the OT boards ever since. Welcome RR and thanks for the interview. Why are you in the corner and who sent you here?
I am in this corner because I was ordered here; AyaProbe and you told me I'd endure a "Skupin" if I didn't show up; but then you already knew that didn't you?
Yes I did, but the viewers did not.. How did you find this little community and why did you stay?
I originally found that other place, the one with my doggie's initials, <muses for a moment about the coincidence> then one day their site was down, I went to a search engine and found SB I found this site to have a wonderful variety of spoilers, some good, some a bit, shall we say, "out of the box" <rolls his eyes> as well as people with a sense of humor and good banter between members.
Then when Survivor Market was featured, that cemented it for me! <RR writes yet another letter to Webby, begging for return of SurvivorMarket-type game>
Okay, so who are your favorite posters and why?
As just about everyone says, I'm afraid I'll leave someone out, but here goes:
Kismet of course, the semi-evil news queen and Surv Market pal; OFG for her literary knowledge and analysis; Lady Trish - just because <wink>; Vamp - esp. now that she has expressed her undying affection for me LOL; flying squirrel - love the analysis and his pic plus Rocky and Bullwinkle is one of my all time favorite cartoons; sleeeve - always interesting spoilers; Shakes - same reason; JV - the resident Whine-o; Superman and his TTL; Surv - A really nice and funny guy; our benevolent dictator, AyaK; DangerKitty; GG; Moon - my favorite heavenly body; Misto; ItzLisa; IceCat; SChick; Mon Cherie; Pepe; EBug; KoKo; ZZ; the twins - Rio and Roni.<shaking at the thought that I've run out of breath and those whom I didn't name will be offended.>
Don't worry RR.. Why did you choose the nickname Rudy Rules?
Well, as one might surmise, I was really pulling for Rudy to win Survivor I. I admired the way he said what he thought and meant what he said. I believe Rudy Rules, hence the nickname.
How do you differ from your BV counterpart? Do you like the way you have been portrayed?
Frankly, I was surprised that Shakes picked me as a cast member, thanks Shakes! It's been a fun time. Well, as to your question: I don't take naps every ten minutes, although sometimes I'd like to. I have a lot of "survivor" type knowledge and would be far more active in building shelter, finding food, etc. I am a bit like RR, in that I'm not an extrovert and I don't do drugs. Overall the way I've been portrayed has been cool; I've enjoyed it immensely, esp. when new things come out like my supposed special forces training and assignment infiltrating the draft dodgers in Canada.
Yeah, the Canadian thing. Are you from Canada or not, and how did we get you so confused?
I am NOT Canadian! I live in Michigan. Perhaps being in rural Michigan is a bit like much of the great white north but I am not now, nor ever have been from Canada. My father was born a French-Canadian but moved to the U.S. at an early age and became a U.S. citizen, fought in WW2 and earned a bronze star for bravery in rescuing munitions while under constant German fire. Perhaps the picture I have of Rudy with the Canadian flag is part of the confusion, but I thought it a great pic., and shows my solidarity with the Canadian people. They are a much maligned lot among some of us here in the States!
Tell us more about yourself RR..
I do have one pet: Chips the wonder beagle, aka: SnoopySucks. It was great that I got to take her as my Luxury Item and I believe she has added a lot to Blowsvivor. I love to fish, swim, go boating, camp, work on genealogy, do dog training, and ski. I have a nice little family, including one daughter, whom I cherish. I have a faith in God, and He has seen me through tough times.
You are a massive flirt in the bar. Who do you enjoy flirting with the most.
Me, A Flirt?!? Surely you jest! <RR flashes a look of incredulity at Kismet who rolls her eyes.> Well, I believe a little harmless flirting keeps the old heart strong, of course I wouldn't engage in any myself mind you. But, IF I were to flirt, I would say the following members would be among my favorites: Lady T, Moon, Vamp, Ameylek, Misto, among others. All the beautiful women of SB deserve some harmless fun! BTW: You can flirt with me anytime Kis!
Oh yeah, because my own flirting is legendary of course.. Do you have any odd quirks that we should know about?
OK, my odd quirks, should I really be sharing this sort of thing? Well, When I get change I always arrange the bills so they all face the same way and in the same direction before depositing them in my wallet and I always give coins to the cashier all heads up. Am I neurotic??? You the viewers be the judge!
You are a speech therapist. Do you enjoy your work?
Actually, the correct title is Speech-Language Pathologist, but I won't hold that against you. Yes I do, there is a real satisfaction in helping people to be able to communicate, that is after all such an important part of being human.<Wishes he could help some of the SB members to communicate in a more human way! LOL>
Okay RR. Is there anything else you want us to know?
<RR scratches head, scratches Chips' belly, scratches Kismet's legs. Kismet slaps him and adds 3 hours to the timer while snickering.>
Ummm.Not really, just that I've enjoyed getting to chat with you wacky people and reading the posts, a few of them even make sense!
Thank you for the interview RR and thank you ladies and gentlemen for being so patient in between Cornertimes.
