Locked Out

1. I'm a little obsessed with the song "Bed" by J. Holiday. It's an R. Kelly style R&B "we're having sexy sex" type of song, which is generally not my chosen genre, but there is something oddly romantic about this one... especially the following lines:
"First rub my back like you do, right there, you touch me like you care. Now stop. And let me repay for the week that you been through, working that 9 to 5 and staying cute like you do."
What can I say? I'm a sucker for a guy who notices that you (his lady) have been working your ass off and still looking good. That's sweet. Hey, I never said the lyrics were Nobel prize-worthy, but they do have charm. Something a lot of Nobel prize-winning books lack.

2. A lot of people liked the key necklace from the last post (which was, by the way, very affordable at $30 for sterling, $38 for vermeil and $130 for 14K). Here are some alternatives:

Clef de Cour Necklace, $58 and Wood Skeleton Key Necklace, $38 (both by Dejarnette NOLA)

Mini Golden Key Necklace, $10 (Fred Flare)

Antique Model Sterling Silver Key on Chain by Lost Button Studio, $40

Iwona Ludyga Tony Key Necklace, $160

3. Did you listen to "Bed" yet? Listen to it!

Having lived through the high point of the 'we're having sexy sex' movement (the era of Silk's "Freak Me" and its litany of similar competitors), I cannot support this song for fear that somewhere, Boyz II Men are lurking again.
