    So as we speak, I’m sitting on a plane waiting to go to E3. I’m not breaking any rules though; the plane is currently parked because *someone* laid fresh tarmac last night and it’s currently all over the wheels.

    The chances of us making our connecting flight to LA are apparently getting slimmer by the second.

    Fingers crossed we get there.
