You say you have relative pitch, that's pretty much how the general populace understands music - by the intervals. Us absolute pitch possessors actually attribute something to the notes or key, as you obviously do. So in a way, it's right. We actually listen to each individual note, so it's not surprising to have you attribute something to the piano keys.

G or G Major is usually an optimistic key/note for me, C Major is neutral, E flat is an annoying buzzing fly, A/A Major shouts overconfidence and arrogance. *shrug*

The whole 'being off slightly' is normal. Most absolute pitch studies I've read, participants were usually able to identify notes with a ~90%+ accuracy with a semitone error margin.
