Wanted: Keys any kind of key that opens any kind of lock. (In Dubuque.)

Posted to Dubuque Freecycle list:

Playing a game and need as many keys as I can get ahold of. Prefer keys that belonged to master locks (not house type keys so much, although I’ll take them too). The “Key” to the game will be to find the right key in a bowl of keys to unlock the paddel lock to reach the prize.

Thanks!!!

    Oh my god.

    The subject line is just about the best Freecycle subject line I’ve ever read.

    Shelia, I have many keys for this person. They need to pick it up from the sketchy bar I’ll be at this evening. It’s called Caddyshack.

    I’m sorry, Erica. You must be willing to drive to Dubuque. It’s part of the Dubuque Freecycle deal.

    I am sorry for both of you.

    Well, if you meet me for a late dinner, I guess I can drive to Dubuque.

  6. Sheila Ryan on February 24th, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Maybe we’ll be invited to play the game.

  7. Casey Cichowicz on February 24th, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    That sounds like a really fun game.

  8. Deron Bauman on February 24th, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    Drink.

  9. Sheila Ryan on February 24th, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    What was that drinking game I thought up the other night? It was really funny. But I forgot.

  10. Deron Bauman on February 24th, 2012 at 2:36 pm

    It was when you forget, you drink.

  11. Deron Bauman on February 24th, 2012 at 2:36 pm

    Drink.

  12. Sheila Ryan on February 24th, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    What if you forget to drink? Do you drink?

  13. Sheila Ryan on February 24th, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    Wait. No. First you drive to Dubuque, then to Wisconsin. Then drink.

  14. Deron Bauman on February 24th, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    I don’t remember.

  15. Sheila Ryan on February 24th, 2012 at 2:55 pm

    It might be Wisconsin, then Dubuque. I know drinking enters into it.

  16. Erica Braverman on February 24th, 2012 at 4:03 pm

    Shelia, what’s for dinner? Besides drinks.

  17. Deron Bauman on February 24th, 2012 at 4:05 pm

    I will speak for Sheila when I say I forgot.

  18. Deron Bauman on February 24th, 2012 at 4:06 pm

    Drink.

  19. Sheila Ryan on February 24th, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    For dinner? Drinks. And despair.

  20. Sheila Ryan on February 24th, 2012 at 4:26 pm

    Meet you at a supper club in Dubuque for dinner and drinks. And despair.

    Sorry, off topic, but has anyone else stopped getting their notifications when they’re subscribed to comments for a given entry?

    I also noticed the addition of “notify me of new posts by email”. For a second I thought it said “by mail”. Feature request.

  22. Deron Bauman on February 24th, 2012 at 4:34 pm

    From the spam: What happens with my computer? I can only see half of words.

  23. Deron Bauman on February 24th, 2012 at 4:35 pm

    Yeah, seems like since we switched servers the email notifications haven’t gone through.

  24. Sheila Ryan on February 24th, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    I’ve noticed some glitches in terms of timely display of comments that I know have been posted. Sometimes I’ll need to go to the page for a particular post, then refresh it in order to see the entire comment thread.

  25. Casey Cichowicz on February 24th, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    Aha. Please fax me if anything new develops in the meantime. Sorry about the troubles.

  26. Sheila Ryan on February 24th, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    Also, I can only see half of words.

    Drink.

  27. Sheila Ryan on February 24th, 2012 at 4:45 pm

    Casey, do we need to phone you first so you can switch over to fax?

  28. Erica Braverman on February 24th, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    Casey, I have an ancient fax machine you can borrow. Let me stop over after Dubuque. I’ll check the freecycle list to see if there is anything I think you need. I can always come bearing cats, too.

  29. Deron Bauman on February 24th, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    Quoting the special needs woman I worked with — and dearly loved — my first job out of college: a keys, a keys, a keys, a coffee.

  30. Sheila Ryan on February 24th, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    A keys, a keys, a keys, any kind of key that opens any kind of lock. In Dubuque.

  31. Sheila Ryan on February 24th, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    Erica! You could check all of the Freecycle lists between where you live and where Casey lives. And pick up lots of cool stuff. We could all do that whenever we go visiting. Just scan the relevant Freecycle lists and arrive bearing presents.
