Sorry to keep everybody in suspense, but I did go on the Zero-G flight. And it was a blast!

When you show up, you get a goodie bag containing a flight suit with a name badge (upsid down — his is an old NASA tradition - astronauts would wear their name badges thus until they completed their first mission) and socks, along with a souvenir T-shirt and hat. There was a light breakfast available (they recommend this for minimum risk of nausea, but I'd read the material they had sent me, and had already had a light breakfast). Then there was a video, showing how the process works, what to do, what not to do, and various tips and tricks.

For those interested, you can download a brief movie of my flight here.
