We can haz Nibleys!

hellbob and I are going to Chicago for a weekend next month! :)
We've got tickets for a live taping of This American Life on April 19th, and so we'll be going out to spend the whole weekend.
It feels so utterly decadent though. Instead of driving to Chicago we are going to fly!
Southwest airlines just started doing Mpls-Chicago flights, and so it's only $100 each round trip. It's going to cost a little bit more than gas would have, but it's going to cut out over 10 hours of travel time, allow us to get a full night's sleep on Sunday, and I won't have to miss any work to drive there or back.
And there are Nibley's in Chicago!

I'm really looking forward to it. It has been over 2 years since we've seen kniblet & dibsy!

Yay!

vanaabegra was just marveling at the price change from last week.

The price of a RT ticket to Chicago went from $800 to $100 overnight - granted that night was the one where Southwest started offering flights out of MSP, but still. :)

Yeah, fucking NWA! The same thing happened when Sun Country was briefly out of business a few years ago. As soon as there were no Sun Country flights NWA prices went up by about 7x. Then when Sun Country came back, prices dropped.

Had a friend who had to go to Chicago for a weekend and they drove because the flight would have been $300 each and taken 7 hours because it had a layover in New Freaking Jersey!

Nibley's?? Sounds like a candy. 0_o

Meant to ask you: what is the price for film scanning? I have a roll that I developed that I'd like to have scanned. 36 exposures of B&W.

LOL! Nibleys are what you get when kniblet marries dibsy. We met them through LJ and they are super awesome! And we haven't seen them for two years now. :(

For scanning, it is supposed to be $.75/frame when people bring negs in but if they are still in a long strip (or, you know, people I know) I do it at the "time of processing" price of $.20/frame.

I thought about getting tickets to that, but then I procrastinated, and now I don't know if any are left!

Eh...I usually work 80 hour weeks in April, anyway. No time for fun.

Well, if something happens and we have to cancel the trip, or if the Nibleys can't make the show we'll pawn off the extra tickets on you. :)
We're gonna have to do lunch or dinner while we're in town.

Thanks. :)
It's so nice to think of a weekend in Chicago without having to think about 15 hours of driving!

Yay! We can't wait.

I'll be back in Chicago on Friday (in Atlanta for a meeting). We'll phone this weekend and make plans.

I can't wait! It feels like it's been years since we've seen you... Oh. Wait. It has been years. :(
I can't believe it's been two years since the last HellNibley gathering! I'm so glad we're going to fix that. :)
