Deirdre dress update

Both designers are set up with PayPal now.

For those of you who said you have PayPal but only THINK it might be bank transfer, please double check. If you make a payment and it turns out to come from your credit card -- it will cost the designers a fee. We don't want them to have to pay for helping us with this gift. Please check your PayPal set up and make sure it's not coming from your credit card.

We have one straggler left. Once I get a hold of him and find out how much he is contributing then I will let you all know where to send the money. We are still $15 short for the white dress. I'll be in touch with those of you who said you might be able to contribute more than $5 so we can make up the difference.

There are only 4 so far contributing toward the black rubber dress. Once I get in touch with the straggler I'll e-mail you all with how much we need. But most likely it will be $20 each. Or more/less depending on what each can afford.

I need to hit the road. I should have extended internet time again by Wednesday and hopefully finish up contacting everyone by then. I hope to have payment instructions to you all by the end of the week.

Thanks everyone!

Just in case...

I have more boxes and luggage packed now than can possible fit in my little truck. I have no idea what I'm going to do. Wondering now if I can just pack it to the ceiling?

A trip like this is not without risks. Especially since I don't know how to drive on ice or in severe weather conditions. So just in case I wrote a last minute will and gave it to my roommate to keep. I'm really glad I did that because I feel very complete knowing directions have been left to take care of everything.

If something does happen to me one of my friends will be very surprised to find that I left them some money with instructions to use half of it for a wake/party at the Mercury (the other half is a gift and payment for planning the event). I did not, however, leave any details for the actual party. So I'm posting them here:
