Dave!To the hundreds of people who asked me why I didn't set my iPhone alarm instead of using the crappy hotel alarm clock in my last entry... I did set my iPhone alarm clock. I always, always have a backup alarm when I'm traveling, because the consequences of missing a meeting or a flight are too dire to contemplate.

But I woke up early. There was no danger of over-sleeping. So I canceled my iPhone alarm and put it in my coat pocket so I wouldn't forget it. I then verified that the alarm clock was set, and went to work reviewing a massive stack of documentation and sketching out some concept roughs. Except the alarm never went off.

Oh well. It all worked out in the end.

As for today? My flights back home were completely uneventful.

Which is a good thing.

Though now I have nothing to blog about except how tired I am.

Perhaps next time I'll get lucky and my plane will have to make an emergency landing or something.

    Yeah, but you totally had delicious chocolate ice cream for dinner. I am awed and jealous at the same time.

    I guess it would have helped if I had read this post too instead of commenting on yesterday’s post.

    No need to say “Duh” or slap me with a wet noodle or anything like that.

    I totally love that picture with the cow that has glasses.

    Well yay for being back home where shit works correctly! Erm, mostly ;).

    If you and I am ever on the same flight, you have at least a 50/50 of the plane needing to make an emergency landing for one reason or another.

    I’m unstable.

    I feel so much better now. Thank you. ;P

    I completely understand – whenever I have a flight to catch (or some other really important thing for which I can’t be late), I set two alarms, too.

    Glad it’s not just me 🙂

  7. Talena says:

    I feel your pain. I bought a new alarm clock with a dual alarm so it would be easier for my fiance and I to get up. But I can’t set the damn thing! So he uses that one and I still have my old one on my side of the bed! Yay technology! >.

    it’s funny that you always talk about the iphone and i have to talk about it all day long as it’s my job
