ugh. lost keys sometime before we went home this past weekend. thought i’d find them when i got back to my apartment.

i didn’t.

now, all sorts of worst-case-scenarios running through my head. (most involve psychopaths using the internet to find my address. you see, there was a scientific poster with my name on it stored on the usb key attached to my keychain.)

i know exactly how i earned the bad karma responsible for this mess.

    you know, i lose my keys all the time.

    so i did 2 things:

    1) made a new google account just for lost keys, and put the email on the keyring.

    2) put a chain on the keyring with a clasp, which i then clasp to something on my person (like a belt loop) *ALL THE TIME*. it is dorky as hell but i haven’t lost any keys since.

    try not to worry. if chaning the locks helps you try not to worry, ask someone for new locks for an xmas present.

    I haven’t lost my keys yet, but I lose my cellphone all the time… in the washing machine. I also found out that motorola phones (the razr) does not like water and will malfunction after a wash (my LG was like a submarine) motorola even puts a literal watermark on the phone in the form of a dot that turns red when it gets wet, so you can’t just return the phone if you got it wet. Thus, the lesson here is, purchase insurance for your phone :)

    those are great ideas. when i rebuild my keychain, i think i’ll definitely go with #1. i don’t think i’ve built up enough fashion confidence for #2 though :)

    sadly, i fear i will have to ask for new locks for christmas. we’ve posted “lost key” fliers throughout our neighborhood; i now realize they provide an easy breadcrumb trail for a thief with our keys. the fear that someone would just follow the signs to our house, pressing the “unlock” button on my car remote, until they found my car, drove me to buy a “club” at 9 PM last night.

    neurotics should not be allowed to lose their keys.

    you’re @ MIT. one of the glories of being at MIT is that nerds rule and it’s ok to look dorky as hell. run with it.

    chef: mind giving me a hint regarding your identity? i can’t go on picturing isaac hayes wearing his keychain clipped onto his belt.
