Dude, where are my pants?
I have, had, a really nice pair of dress slacks. Microfiber, and the high tech stuff that food and spills would just fall off of.

I gave them to the hotel laundry to clean at last hotel, and then just packed my clean clothes uninspected. Mistake.

I needed to wear them today, as my other pants needed to go thru the laundry. And they had shrunk, and were uncomfortable, and not nearly as good looking. And I was thinking, crap, the dry cleaning or the hot dryer or something has ruined them.

No, I just checked the tag. These are not my pants! They are the pants from some cheap men's dress rental.

So this evening, I will have to call up the hotel, and say "Dude, where are my pants!", and also probably go to the mall and buy a new pair anyway.

Where are you today? I am beginning to think you travel around like the game "Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?"

Oh, yes, I do hope you find your pants. It seems that you have to double check everything--from sales slips to laundry returns.

When I arrive at an airport or hotel, I send a message that ultimately ends up in Livejournal in the posts titled "Tweets for Today".

You can also see where I am and where I am going to be on http://www.dopplr.com/traveller/fallenpegasus/public
You can take the magic link "http://www.dopplr.com/traveller/fallenpegasus/feed/mytrips/a619bfd1f7f434e5c29f4379cf8e4679fb05057aa840ea39410c6963f90135a4/all" and add it to your blog reader if you use one, and track me that way.

But to directly answer your question, I am in Minneapolis today
