Meg and I had ourselves a fun little trip. Sunday morning we drove through Chicago to Six Flags Great America. Their Fright Fest is currently in progress. So we went through one haunted house and did a bunch of rollercoasters. Yay, lots of fun. It got pretty cold by the end. Then dinner at a very good Italian place.

Monday morning we spent in downtown Chicago. We went to a spa and got massages and manicures. The manicure was an interesting experience. I didn't get any nail polish, but my nails are very shiny from being buffed. They also put on some pumpkin exfoliating stuff. All I could think about while this stuff sat on my hands was that while I was using food to make my hands smell funny, countless others had no food at all. The best part of the manicure was a really good hand massage. I don't feel any need to do any of the rest of it again, though.

We ate lunch at foodlife in the Watertower, then went up to the observation level of the Hancock Building. It's oh so tall.
