Why am I such a happy HellZiggy?

Besides all the pretty stuff I got from Amazon, I also how have plans for

Attack of the Nibleys 3: The HellHouse Invades!

Hee hee. hellbob and I have set a date to go visit Chicago. We will be leaving Minneapolis as soon as I get out of work on Friday, March 9th and getting to Chicago sometime late that night. We will then spend 3 1/2 glorious days doing Stuff.
No, we don't know what kind of stuff yet, other than the Blue Man Group. And then we'll be heading back home on Tuesday afternoon.

Are any of the rest of you out there on my flist in the Chicago area?
