I've told more than one former crush that they were a former crush - not in so many words. So far each time it seems to have gone over well. We're talking about telling married people with kids here! I'm also tied down, so it's not on the skeevy level (though in my crowds those are often options). It's just fun, especially as I find that they were just as awkward and insecure as I was.

I feel like I"m comfortable in my own skin, but some of that is the realization that I live in a different world. I am either muscular enough or look confident enough without reason that people leave me alone. Or I'm just too old to fuck with for manpoints. Whatever it is, I compare it to life when my friend when from flubby to thin - you go to the same places and see the same people but are treated completely differently. You don't forget, but over time your expectations do change.

"Impostors" are what the cookbook I pulled the recipe out of called them. I guess it's because they look like chocolate bars until you cut into the pan and discover the peanut buttery deliciousness underneath. I started making them in high school, when I needed a dessert to take to forensics potlucks and such. I've not made them in ages, though.

Last week I was going through the recipe box taking photos of the ones I wanted to save, and the impostors recipe was one of those. I transcribed it from the photo on the plane out here. And then in the grocery store I saw the boxes of Baker's chocolate and remembered that Erin, who doesn't normally like sweet things, likes Reeses's cups, and said "Hey, I could make impostors!"

The nice thing about this recipe is that it is basically impossible to screw up sugar, butter, and peanut butter. It's possible to ruin the chocolate, either by scorching it or apparently by allowing even a single drop of water to come in contact with it, but taking it slowly reduces the likelihood of that as well.

Dear self,

The next time you give yourself a good bash on the head while trying to plug something into a floor outlet, could you please at least hit someplace that will give a nice big bruise?  It's pretty pitiful to have this painful a forehead and nothing to show for it.

Alternately, you could just stop trying to plug things into outlets with nearby chairs.  Floor outlets, good.  Hard chair arms, good.  Combination, bad.
