I am also adept at using the whip handle that is supposed to be my "horseyboy" tail to tap on the keys. And you thought I was talking out of my ass before!?

I tend to find solutions to coding issues by jumping from pondering it to something else and back again. Plus, I work from a home office and use the pc not connected to my company's VPN.
My answer is yes.

Self employed sounds better than submissive. I like pyjamas more than a gimp suit and my pony boy outfit.

Occasionally in the mornings before things get going. I usually arrive early (30 minutes, or so), and check BF while I'm sipping some coffee.
