O hai thar. 

I'm a little bit tipsy, and a lot pissed off.

I went to visit a friend of mine who just moved to New Orleans. Let's just call him my ex-boyfriend.

Now, my ex-boyfriend has been lonely in the few months since he moved to NOLA and started getting his PhD in mathematics. He apparently met this interesting young woman with whom he's been hanging out, and recently they started making out and talking about 'seeing' each other. Fine, fine. All's well.

Except... well, she acts like a psycho. This was immediately apparent to me upon meeting her, and said impression was only hugely bolstered by tonight's shenanigans, in which she met us at the fancy restaurant at which we had dinner FUCKING WASTED, insulting the waitress and generally under the impression that the world would excuse her assholish behavior because she's coltishly adorable a la Natalie Portman.

I won't go into the whole sad story. Suffice to say, I pretty soon had my fill, which she could tell (she told my friend 'I think she hates me'- no, sweetheart, I don't hate you- I think you're obnoxious and irritating and I want to get as far away from you as possible as soon as possible, but 'hate' is reserved for those I respect or feel threatened by). So I left.


So far, NOLA is not impressing me. Though the architecture is lovely. And I hear John Goodman lives here.

It sounds as though you unwittingly threaten the bejesus out of her. Be gracious and send her a note that is kind and understanding: either she'll be touched and start acting rationally or she'll be too terrified of you to ever again be in the same place you are. Either way is a win! More sensibly, it does sound as though you've done everything right and made the best of a bad situation, other people's crap is not really yours to take responsibility for. Good for you for trying to keep the ex-boyfriend friendship working, though. I have moved continents to escape that sort of effort in the past. I doff my hat!

I can has a question: I need a piano player to accompany a silent film I'm going to screen. It's eighty minutes long. They have to be able to play in an old timey silent movie accpaniment style. And it's possible that they'll need to bring their own keyboard, I don't know if the theatre keeps one available to those who rent the space.

I thought maybe with your theatre or general people connections you might know of someone I could rent out for a couple of hours?
