Exchange rate: I'm not attending Fantasia, but my wallet is

I’ve attended Montreal’s Fantasia Film Festival twice in my life, and will sadly miss out this year. But, my wallet will be there for a – hopefully – short time. Alamo Drafthouse owner and Fantastic Fest chief Tim League made a stop in Manhattan on his way to Montreal last night, and I happily offered him my meager sofa as a place for him to sleep. He did, it was good seeing him. Then, I get up this morning to a text message that says something along the lines of “Damn, I accidentally picked up your wallet when I left this morning and I’m already at JFK. Can I Fedex it?”

Granted, this is not the worst thing that could have happened to my wallet. I think it’s pretty amusing, in that “no way!” kinda way. And, why do I bother blogging about it? Well, because I’d otherwise be at lunch right now… but I have no cash or credit cards.
