Well, it's what he really wants. <mimishrug>
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.

Oh I forgot...I also have a valet key on one of those detachable key ring things that's connected to my main ring. Realized it when I went out earlier. LOL

I have not seen those. Will have to look into that if I ever need to replace my garage door opener. My friend told me about one that is wifi enabled so if you leave the house and can't remember if you closed the door, you can hop on the web and do it. That would be cool.

That would be very cool.

My garage door opener was issued to me by building security. It's a parking garage, not an individual one. Maybe that's why it's different?

Last night, I was thinking about my college boyfriend. Nothing scandalous, and I haven't really thought of him in quite a few years, and I was only wondering how old his kids would be right now. NO big deal.

Then today I Get an email from him. He's living in a hotel, is on his second divorce (First one wasn't his doing)... and he thinks he might be a woman on the inside. Reached out to me because of my PFLAG/GLBT background.

Holy. Crapoly.

Is that a variant of praying away the gay?

Hee, hee -- doubt it PEllen (and yes I know you were kidding).

Wow. An old boyfriend. He obviously was careful who he chose to speak to. I hope he finds his way.

It's called Noetics.

Last night I dreamt I was eating a giant marshmallow.

When I woke up this morning, my pillow was gone.

Speaking of dreams... last night I dreamed about Jasper moving away and us breaking up. In the dream, I was *devastated* but when I woke up, I remembered that my pain is less than that now. It was the opposite of what has happened a few times over the past several months: dreaming that we're still together and waking up to realize we're not, and being sadder IRL than in the dream.

Progress?
