TGIF! Weekend plans?

Tonight: meeting A at the mall to shop. I'm focusing on work clothes and Vegas clothes.

Tomorrow & Sunday: get my brows waxed, get a pedicure, go tanning, do laundry, clean the house, REST. I'm still fighting this cold and really want to be 100% better before flying next Saturday.

I've locked myself out of my own office a couple of times. That's what I get for trying to separate office keys from house keys from car keys (I hate having a giant tangle of keys).

My key chain.
-1 car key
-1 house key (opens front door and door from garage into house
-1 mailbox key

I'm not a big wig enough to have my open closed door office, but if I did, that's 4 keys. What else you got making it a big tangle?

Also, you've reminded me that I'm hungry. I've been routinely forgetting my apple lately, to the point where I can't even say I bring an apple every day anymore. I have a second chance each day to grab it when I go home for lunch but almost always forget it then too.
That was what saved me from complete panic when I couldn't find them...it was just one key, since I hate having them all together. Makes me feel like a janitor or something. It was on the floor of my car.

The apple in the morning thing has been working out well for me. Kind of a natural burst of energy.

No hockey, no girl's nights, no nothing. Hoping to have a date night with J tomorrow.

It's Friday? Seriously the days are just melding one into another over here.

Weekend plans: Writing, writing, MORE writing. Hopefully I can hurry up and write my way into the PhD program and forgo the rest of the Master's...it's only a year, but a year is a year.

Me too! I also have a little square dangly thing (very little) with a Jag logo on it but that's it. I HATE big ass dangly tangly key rings.

-car key (which is really a fob so it's bulky)
-house key
-mailbox key
-fob that lets me in my building (home)
-2 office keys (one to the main office space, one to my actual office)

I've tried different combinations but since I can't be trusted to remember to GRAB what I need, I have a detachable keychain and the house key, mailbox key, and building fob are on one side and everything else is on the other. Since I walk to a lot of places from home, I don't need to be dragging around my car key fob or office keys all the time.

Mine qualifies as a big tangle:

-3 keys to my apt (vestibule, front/back door, basement)
-2 keys for in-law's (vestibule, front door) but I still have an old key of their's on my ring. Too lazy to remove it, I guess.
-2 keys to my mother's house
-1 key for my dad's house
-1 key + remote for car

I have them all on a lanyard which helps me find them in the bottom of my commuter bag.

I also carry my office and desk key in my wallet.

And if they are too heavy, they can damage your ignition/starter.

Yep, I've heard this. My car has a push-button ignition, but still. And because the fob charger is lower in the car than the ignition, long dangly keys would touch my knee as I drove and that would bug me.

J and I watched Wreck-It Ralph last night. I think that movie is more for people our age than it is for kids. Very fun.

Has anyone seen the interview between Mila Kunis and the English guy (kid)? She is ADORABLE! The guy is very nervous, and she basically takes him off script and just talks to him for a bit. There is a short video about it on the front page of CNN.com . If I were to switch teams, she would be my first, second and third choices.

I just got something that will get the tinfoil hat-wearers in here riled up. The American Comunity Survey from the US Dept. of Commerce. They are quite the inquisitive little bunch.
