Staff Reporter[/size]Sixteen Questions with Mona Oliveira
Who is this fashionista that travels the RhyDin City streets? We wanted to know too! So grab that cup of coffee and get to know Mono Oliveira!
1> How long have you been in RhyDin?
Five months, give or take? Sometimes it feels like forever and sometimes it does not seem so long at all.
2> What is the one thing about life in RhyDin that you love?
The variety! RhyDin is so diverse. It keeps things interesting, and half the time I feel like some child lost in a fairy tale acid trip, because I never know who- or what- I will encounter!
3> Is there anything about RhyDin that you would change?
I do not think anything bugs me enough to actually consider changing it. It is a place where 'govern yourselves accordingly' actually seems to work for the most part, so who am I to complain, you know?
4> Where are you from originally?
I am from a place called ?vora, which is in Portugal. Very pretty but very hot.
5> What do you do for a living?
Right now? Nothing. I might go into real estate though, because I think I am very good at it. I just sold the house next to mine to a girl named Serah Farron. If you are reading this,Ol? Serah!
6> Is there anyone on Earth who misses you? Is there anyone that you miss?
Most of the people I knew back there have missed me at one time or another, which does not keep them from still taking aim. It is one of the reasons I am better off in RhyDin.
Oh! The people themselves? My mentor probably misses me. I certainly miss him. We write letters back and forth, because he is like my big brother. He has taught me how to be and how not to be, and while it pains me that I do not get spend the time with him I once did, he is a very busy man. I understand that.
7> If you knew you were going to be stranded on a deserted island - what 5 things would you take with you?
1) Bart Fitzroy, because even on a deserted island, being left to my own devices would be a very bad thing
2) My parrot, Batata, so that Bart will have something to argue with.
3) An empty truck
4) A copy of Lord of The Flies, because I think it would be appropriate
5) A cellphone to call someone for when we do not want to be stranded anymore
8> What is something most people don?t know about you? What do they miss when meeting you?
I do not think there is enough paper in the world, you know? I think people believe I am just bored with the world, but inside I am a very big dork. I love the game Teddy Bear: The Cuddling, and old campy vampires movies.
9> Who do you think is fascinating to watch?
Artsblood Shusberg. We do not see eye to eye sometimes, but the way she moves is very much like a spider always looking for something that is trapped in its web.
I think Cianan, he is very funny to watch. He is like if someone made a drow cartoon character and it came to life.
10> What do you admire most about your best friend?
What I admire most about Bart is that, no matter what, he is so laid back. Just being around him is very calming, very cool. He keeps me sane.
And Tegan Milburn, who is more family now than friend. She puts up this front, you know, where she seems all mysterious and spooky, but inside she is all hearts and kittens. Her room looks like Lisa Frank exploded in there! I admire that duality.
11> Who is your favorite bartender?
I do not know his name, but the one who plays the piano.
12> Who is your favorite shop owner?
The woman who runs Dangerous Duds. I keep a weird schedule, so when she closes for the night she leaves the back door open because she knows I always ring myself up!
13> Do you like sweets? What kinds of sweets are your favorites?
I am not a fan of sweets, but sweet people? Zofie Kaminsky, hands down, and Damian Osiris. They make my teeth ache.
14> How do you feel about marshmallows?
I don't care for them, but I enjoy watching my dog try to eat them!
15> How big is your tab at the Inn?
Oddly enough, a tab does not exist for me there. I pay upfront.
16> Have you ever fed the stew?
No, but I have heard tales. I am in no hurry to meet it, either.
