On this week's episode of FUUUUUUUUUUCK!, FedEx has informed me that the suitcase containing the majority of my clothes is lost. I'll have to file a claim on Monday to collect the measly $100 of shipping insurance.
Ah well. As the Buddha says, things are just things, or whatever. Unless you are a real person who takes proper precautions when shipping things across the country. Then you wouldn't have to pretend to be Buddhist.
Some clothes did get to me. Suits, old ties kept for sentimental value, sweater dresses. They'll be perfect for sopping up sweat and tears while I wander the steaming July streets of Austin, naked.
