I like to cook too. I wouldn't say I'm extremely good at it, but my husband loves it so that's good enough for me.
And back on topic, after almost 3 years of no contact my ex IMs me suddenly last night. He goes on about how he's grown up and how he was a little kid before and that he's sorry for the mean things he did and said. He wants to be friends. Also, his new email is apparently starwars_fan_80, which mine is starwars_fan_77. 77 for the year ANH was released, so obviously his 80 is in reference to ESB. Which I believe was a (somewhat pathetic) attempt to make me think he's being cute. Actually in the last while I've considered changing my email to something with less underscores. But anyway, I told him that I was married now (which only seemed to make him hesitate a little before he went on some more about wanting to chat and see how I am doing) and that I didn't want another friend right now.
I blocked him, but I am kind of curious, I mean, did he ever grow up for real? Ever man up? Is he still living at home? Did he ever get a job (or in these times I'd have accepted him trying to get one anyway)? Still adding delusional drama to everything? Still practically worshiping mommy-dearest? Or is he still a whiney fat emo kid? And while I am curious I, and my husband agrees, that it's a bad idea to chat with exes. I've never had an ex before, and it kind of feels weird even having anyone to call that. And we've never had any interaction for, like I said, almost three years. Just really weird.
