Lady T's Cornertime With Kismet
<Cameras focus on the fidgeting form of Lady Trish. She is sitting on one of two bar stools. Kismet comes into the room. She looks tired and flushed, and is carrying a cup of coffee. She smiles for the camera and begins speaking.>
Good Evening Survivor Blows community. Joining us today is the infamous Lady Trish. LT has been a part of SB for a very long time under varying aliases. She was a summary writer at one point and has contributed to our community in many ways.
<Kismet arrives near Lady Trish and they shake hands. Kismet seats herself on the other barstool. We see that Lady T's timer reads 10:14:05>
Thank you for the interview LT. What exactly did you do that would land you here for such a long time? Who sent you here?
Don't you remember? You did. I begged and pleaded with you to be part of this until you had enough of me and said Yes, just to get you off my back.
Oh that's right I did... Yes excessive whining always gets you some cornertime. To be honest though you excel at whining, really I mean it. I do not think I have ever met a more proficient whiner in all my life.
Can I have some cheese with my whine?
<Kismet add an hour to LT's clock>
Did I mention I hate bad puns almost as much as I hate whining? Well, now you know. Let move on to the next question. You may want to be here all night, but I have things to do. How did you find this board and why did you stay?
I was a member of SS before the CAPSLOCK incident, After that, SS became famous and was flooded with people. If you expressed a differing opinion, especially one of the in crowd, everyone jumped all over you. It was so awful, it wasn't very much fun. When they initiated the voting off of posters, that was the last straw. I am proud to say that I received one vote to be kicked off of there <LT laughs>. I saw a post from Dee Smith, who invited people to SB. So I went and got such a warm welcome that I knew that this was the right place for me.
Who are your favorite posters and why?
The dreaded question, but the one that everyone looks to see if their name is here. <LT winks into the camera> I will start with the people who started with me. BA, Vamps and EBug, who really worked hard to make this place a fun, creative place. They deserve a lot of credit for keeping the bar active, especially in the beginning of S2. Last summer wouldn't have been the same without them. The two Supers, Pole and Man. Wouldn't that make a great name for a cartoon? Well, maybe not hehehe...
Lisapooh makes me laugh so much. She's helped me discover my innate hotness. Monkeyboy, Aym, Lizzlover, GT, The twins. I have had great conversations with the Twins, and look forward to many more. Surv is the kindest person, I wish there was more people like him around. And of course, the couple of the year here, you and Pen. Both of you are so talented and deserve a lot of credit for keeping the board alive in the offseason.
<LT tries to look innocent and not like a suckup but fails miserably. Kismet glares at her for a moment and when LT cowers, she makes a motion for her to continue.>
You know Kis, this is the hardest question. I feel like I am leaving so many people out. Why must you ask this?
Because I want to know. You were known as Kismet on SS, great name and I'm very glad you switched when moving here. When you arrived here you took the name Irish Eyes. Why did you change your nick again?
I am so glad you asked this. Regrettably, I was once here under the moniker Irisheyes. She needed to die. Irisheyes did a lot of things that she shouldn't have done, was manipulated by people and acted out before knowing the whole story. As IE, I have apologized to the people I hurt. I didn't want to leave, but wanted a fresh start. So Lady T was born. I also got a computer at my place, instead of at Mom's so I just decided to start afresh.
Why did you choose the name Lady T. Is there any significance in that name?
Obviously, T stands for Trish. My name means royalty so I wanted to incorporate the T, and needed another name with it. Queen was way to pretentious, Princess seemed to Barbie and Ken. Countess, well I so won't go there. Can you imagine the jokes with that one? So I decided on Lady. Added incentive was that I love the song Lady by Kenny Rogers.
On a funny note, my last name in either Celtic or Gaellic means my ass. So my full name means royalty, my ass. <LT laughs>
What is the funniest thing you have seen on this board or in chat?
OMG. I don't know if I should repeat this. The infamous night in chat last summer where I found myself to be sandwich meat with my two favorite pieces of bread, BA and Pole. The bar was christened that night, in more ways than one. However, I will say this, it was all in fun, and NOTHING happened,
regardless of what has been said in the past.
<Kismet raises an eyebrow>
Ok, I lied. Something did happen. I laughed so hard, I almost had an accident. Thank God that the bathroom was close by. Pole and Vamps had me laughing so hard, I ran out to get some Depends.
I've been told that you have all of the dirt on the ex-evil overlord(before I took over) known as BadAs. Tell us all of his dirty little secrets.
I can't reveal much, cause he knows too many of my secrets. But I can tell you this... <LT laughs> He likes to dress in women's underwear and wear high heels. OMG, did I say that? Just kidding BA.
He has been known to come to chat, not recently though, and carry on conversations with posters, all the while the poster thinks he's a newbie girl. I remember a girl who worked as a secretary and lived in DC. He had us fooled.
<Kismet mutters something about sheep.>
He is a wise all knowing man.
<Kismet chokes on her coffee>
Seriously, he is very cool and I think he is the greatest. His book is hysterical, even for a yank like me who had no idea that the word hokie existed.
I really enjoy the Brady Bunch series. How did you get the idea to do the Brady Bunch with SB posters? Will we be seeing a new one soon?
I love shows like the Brady Bunch, Facts of Life, Partridge family, Charlie's Angels. I liked writing the Charlie's Angels, so I thought I would use the Bradys, since I could use a lot of different people.
I was going to originally to the Love Boat, and have special guest stars Jason Bateman, Tori Spelling, Andrew McCarthy and Kathie Lee Gifford, but it got way too hard. I like to do parodies.
And yes, the next Brady will be out this weekend by the latest.
I look forward to reading it. Now LT, It is time to tell us about yourself..
I am happily single, never married. Who would live with me? <hehehehehe> I split with my ex in Feb when I realized how much smarter I was than him. He really was a dumbass. I live alone with my cat Cleopatra, who ran away but thankfully came home. One of my favorite things to do is send hate mail to the radio station I live next too, because they annoy me and its the only radio station I can get.
Here comes the sad story, be prepared. My Mom is my best friend. The defining moment in my life was April 17, 1999. I called my parents that morning to say Hi, and my mother told me my father hurt his back and she was taking him to the hospital. I met them there an hour later. I was greeted with the fact that my father was going to have emergency surgery for an aortic aneurysm. He made it through the surgery, but never awoke. He died twelve hours after feeling the first twinge of pain. As horrible as this was, it brought me closer to my mother and sisters. My parents were together for fifty years, and I moved in with my Mom for a year. Until we discovered that we were sick of each other. I live five blocks away from her.
The point of me sharing this is that laughter can get you through anything. To live everyday to its fullest because you never know what will happen. I discovered so much about myself that I never knew existed. To quote Dickens, it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
I love to laugh, I love to write and I love taking pictures. I get up every morning and look in the mirror and I laugh. That puts me in a great mood and I try to maintain that happy feeling.
It is good to meet such a positive person. Thank you for sharing that story with us. Is there anything else we should know about you?
Lets see, you all know how sensitive I am. That is by far my worst trait. I don't have any neat tricks like applying lipstick from my cleavage, so I guess that's it.
Thank you the interview Lady T. It was very enlightening.
<Kismet gives LT's stool a spin until she is once again facing the corner. Kismet faces the camera. >
Thank you for joining us for this episode. I have no idea who we will see in here next time.
