Fancy seeing you here...
Kate and I bumped into Wei last night. We were both going to see Robot Stories at the Fantastic Film Festival. She'd come because of interest in a movie made by and starring primarily Asian-American people, but which wasn't about being a minority. Kate is always up for a screening where the director does a Q&A session afterward. Me, I came for the robots.

It was more than a little awkward. I suppose asking how Kurt was wasn't the smartest thing I could have done. Wei said he was pretty good, and then started to kind of babble, feeling the need to explain why she said everything along with just saying it: "He doesn't talk about you much, but I think he's kind of paranoid that someone might be reporting back to Olivia and then she'll tell her sister" or "it was a little tense between them last weekend, but I'm not saying that because it means you might be able to get back together."

Kate snorted, saying Kurt was a fool. Wei looked uncomfortable at that, so I pointed out that "I" was kind of a bitch the night "we" first met, and that might have played into it. That seemed to relax Wei a little. "Yeah, I think that was a factor. Don't take this the wrong way, but you seemed like a completely different person that night. The whole time you and Kurt were dating, I was waiting for the other shoe to drop."

We took seats in different parts of the theater - Kate and I like it up front, Wei not so much - so that was the end of that. I tried to get her off the topic of Kurt by asking how her "thing" was going.

"George? I don't know. He's nice, we like a lot of the same things, he's good in bed. Maybe something will happen. Still, I don't think it's quite serious yet. But back to you - are you going to jump right back in?"

Hell, no. "I don't really feel the need for another man in my life right now." I'm quite enough man for my life, thank you.

"You sure? I hear Carter's girlfriend is moving back to Atlanta."


"Oh, so you are interested..." she smiled smugly.

I told her, no, I just like to gossip. That was cool with her, and she said that the girl's family was all down there and she'd never been out of the area and didn't like it. I said I guessed I could understand that. Kate started to ask about my (that is, Michelle's) family, but fortunately the movie started

Might have to do some research on that.
