Strange you should put the last sentence that way, Lee. I was finally able to nail the mommybitch's personality in psychiatric terms that have escaped me up until now. Narcissism (NPD). Do your own Google. Very enlightening.

(As for your live music group, try the bar scene in "The Four Seasons" and their rendition of "Strangers in the Night" on an untuned upright...I think dark_empathy would find it especially painful).
