Keys.

My car key is on a separate ring with the electronic door unlocker

House ring
house key
mom's house key
locker key
bathroom key from an office I worked in maybe 10 years ago
about 3 others that I don't remember but keep so there are enough on the ring to find in my purse.

Office has all electronic key pads and biometric ID entry system( aka the security guard downstairs recognizes my face)

But we dont know the moment the decision was made. When the door is opening? Sure thats a snap decision, but how about when he parks his cruiser. Now he makes that decision, and he has the time while turning off the motor, getting out of the car, meeting with the other cops (who never fired a shot) deciding which door to pound on.... Clearly time to reconsider or at least reign in your emotions.

I'm on Team Tonka. It's definitely manslaughter. From Wikipedia (sorry -- it was quick though):

"Voluntary manslaughter occurs when a person intentionally kills another person after "adequate provocation"; that is, there has been action that was sufficient to incite an "ordinary person" to "sudden and intense passion" such that s/he loses self control. It should be noted that the time between provocation and the killing should not be long enough for the passion to have cooled off.

Involuntary manslaughter generally occurs in only two cases. The first is when someone is killed due to criminal negligence, and the second is when someone is killed during the commission of another crime, where the intent was not to cause bodily injury or death.(This is often called "misdemeanor manslaughter".)

Murder is the act of killing another human being with "malice aforethought". Malice aforethought is defined to be the intent to kill or to inflict bodily injury, either express or implied. If a deadly weapon is used, intent to kill will necessarily be implied by a court of law."

Oh, I want to play the key game!

1 for my Odyssey
1 for my house
1 for my husband's CRV
1 valet key for the CRV (don't know why)
1 for the top lock of my Grandmother's apt
1 for the bottom lock of my Grandmother's apt
1 for my Grandmother's mailbox
1 for the padlock to my Grandmother's storage locker
1 key fob to my Grandmother's apt building

They are separated onto 3 key rings on a carabiner.

How is it going around your house? Are you taking either of th boys to the wake?

Paranoid impulse. Have someone house sit at your inlaws house during the wake and funeral and at your house unless you have a sitter there with Ry and E.

Not just the in-laws' house, but maybe Jess's house as well. I read about burglaries here in the metro where thieves targeted the homes of the adult children of the dead person! THey knew they'd be out for the funeral. crazy.

Hi All!

Leaving for the wake in less than 2 hours. It is snowing here and I hope that doesn't affect the burial tomorrow. I went out and bought a new outfit to wear to the funeral because all of my clothes are either too summery or have been worn to family funerals recently. OMG am I going to look good.

We are bringing both of the boys. They have been through this several times in the past couple of years between my Grandfather, my husband's Grandmother and his Uncle all dying and having formal services. My neighbors are going to keep an eye on our house and my in-laws' neighbors are going to keep an eye on their house. Also, it helps that the wake is going to be fairly short - 5-8 pm- and right down the street from my in-laws' house.

The funeral tomorrow is going to be harder. 8.30 service, 9 am mass, followed by lunch at a Portuguese restaurant (I hate that place, but we always go there after funerals). My Grandmother asked if I could give her a ride either tonight or tomorrow, but that's not happening. She then asked my Aunt to drive down from VT so she could drove her, and my Aunt was considering it. Thankfully that's not going to happen, either. I don't have time to entertain them. My husband's family causes enough drama. I'm sure I'll have stories for you guys.

Hot mess or not, on her best day Hope still loses to Mila. But yeah, quite the hot mess she is.

I caught a bit of Rules of Engagement last night (with David Spade), and one of the couples was having a talk about what they each wanted on their birthdays. The woman went first, and she said something like she wanted him to give her a footrub, then breakfast in bed, then draw her a bath, then a backrub, then watch The Notebook with her. He looks at her and says "So, no hot freaky sex?" She says, no, I can get that from you anytime. For my birthday I want something I couldn't normally get.

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?

I can understand people who carry keys to parents homes. But I don't live in the same town as mine. There is no need for me to carry that on my key ring. I only bring that if I'm headed out of town for a visit.

Mine is a little fob-style one that comes on a keychain. I *could* attach it to my keys but I choose not to.

I don't think I even have a key to my parents' house anymore at all.

My friend A has a key to my apt and I'll be getting a key to her house, but I won't carry it around with me. I'll leave it on the key rack at home and grab it in an emergency, which is what our key exchange is for. Other than that, I have no need or desire for extraneous keys.

I routinely let myself into my in-law's; did it this morning and will do it again tonight. So having their keys on my ring make sense.

I leave the other two parent's keys on because I know if I ever need to use them, it will be in an emergency and I don't want to have to go hunting for them.
