I think I will have to sign a contract and give my credit card number to put the whole thing on, but I have no problem with that (yay, miles!). With the way my billing cycle works, I don't think I'll need to ask for money until that evening.
I need to give her a final number 72 hours beforehand, but that shouldn't be a problem either.
We may need to choose the menu a bit in advance, so start thinking (unless you want me to make an executive decision, which would be fine)
Here is the one we are doing.

But hey, as I said, that's just me. I know I'm weird.
My nieces (who are 7) are always correcting me when I call something "yucky". You're SUPPOSED to say "I don't care for that".
Oddly I eat almost anything (and everything). Strangest things: ostrich sashimi, kangaroo, fried cactus, bugs (in several styles), teriyaki alligator ribs, haggis (yucky), and a scottish dish called "spotted dick" (which is actually just cake with raisins in a cream sauce, but it has a funny name). If there's something on the menu I haven't tried I've GOT to order it. BUT, I could just as easily make a meal out of Dorritos, ice cream and soda.
