FedEx anxiety disorder

So, I ordered my camera yesterday (Tuesday) with 2-day shipping. It is now 5:30 on the East coast, and I am increasingly becoming overpowered with fear that it will not ship until tomorrow. If this is the case, then I will not receive the camera until Monday evening. This possibility paralyzes me with fear. I am nearly too distraught to work. It destroys my life.

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

UPDATE [5:32 Pacific]: My camera has indeed shipped. Mental anguish: reduced. Waiting: intensified.

Man, I think I speak for all of us, your tastes in basically everything suck

You're referring to my taste in... cameras? Litanies against fear? Package carriers?

Yeah, that one sounded too much like Matt to be anyone else.
