Dave!And so tomorrow I'm flying to Atlanta.

Assuming the snow that's been forecast doesn't close down the airport. That would be a huge problem for me. On the bright side, being stuck at home would mean I could stay in bed all day. I've been working from the time I wake up to the time I go to bed every day for the past three weeks, so I could use a break.

Hopefully all will go as planned, in which case I'll just have to take my break on the plane. I've become addicted to digital comics, so I've got a bunch of those loaded up on my iPad... along with episodes of the Hey That's My Hummus podcast... so I should be good to go.

Well, maybe not "good" to go... probably more like "good enough" to go.

In other iPad news, one of the best iPad games ever, Ticket to Ride, has been shrunk down to fit on the iPhone with Ticket to Ride Pocket. It only has the USA map, and internet play is absent, but it's a very good translation (and you can still play against somebody on iPad/iPhone/iPod locally via Wireless or Bluetooth!). I thought the game would be hard to play on the small screen but, thanks to the iPhone's Retina Display, it's actually quite easy...

If only I had time to play it.

   

And now it's probably time to pretend I don't have insomnia and go to bed.

I've got a long day tomorrow.

    Omg I love Ticket to Ride, I WANT TO PLAY I WANT TO PLAAAAAY! They better make it for android!!

    I played the online version of it, they have a trial version where you can play 5 games for free, but I’m too cheap to pay for a membership haha

    Wait, when did you get an iPad again?

    This game suggestion reminds me of the game I play on my iPad: Train Conductor 2. I love that game and it’s a blast to play and unlock different cities.

    Ticket to Ride is such a great game. I’m addicted to the real life European version.

    I’ve also recently discovered reading comics on my iphone since I can’t get the new Ghostbuster comics over here.
