Help me make my life a little bit more obsessive.

Can you recommend a calendar/to-do app for the iPod Touch or the iPad? I want to be able to schedule events in my calendar, but I also want to be able to specify a list of tasks within each event that can be crossed out as they are done. I don't care about reminders or syncing.

I'm seriously starting to think I should learn how to develop apps for the iPhone/iPad and just write these things myself.
I've been using ToodleDo, which is great for projects, but not so great for a visual planning of how I'm going to spend the rest of my work day. I'd like to be able to specify that I'm working on "Updating Website" from 5PM to 8PM, and that within that 3 hour slot I want to copy edit Pages 1, 2, and 3, and add Page 4. It'd be awesome if I could check off the tasks as I finish them.
Normally I would schedule to-do items as calendar events, but that gets highly tedious if a time-sensitive project has a bunch of tiny tasks to do. Entering them in the 'notes' field of calendar events is a sort-of-okay kludge, but having to click through to the event to see the notes is really annoying.
Ideally this app would be available for the iPad, though I'll take it for the iPod Touch. I don't care if it syncs or if it gives me reminders. I don't really care how it handles unfinished tasks in past events... ideally it would just ignore them and let me schedule a new event/project for them. Does my dream calendar app exist?
