cookbook fun.

Who thinks MJ did not know what she was getting herself into when she volunteered to help out with the cookbook? Here are some problems.. from this years' fun bday project"
- people still submitted entries days late
- people asked if they could change their entries
- formats were funny (I had to redo pages because of formatting)
- we didnt realize the amount of work involved in doing the final pages
- TOC's were a nightmare [lining up dots, constant page changes, making it fit on 1 page]
- people DID NOT follow directions (good thing MJ's computer recognizes chinese font, and so did her computer)
- people used backgrounds that were too dark, MJ and the team had to edit
- MJ was brain dead and cut it wrong.. so then subsequently had to reprint, and recut all the pages
- some of the actual pages were smaller than the rest of the CB, so if MJ forgot, she had pages that were cut off (this happened like 4 times)
- last minute recipes were given (though, the very last one is forgiven)
- last minute phone calls/ripping apart envelopes
- people did not pay

After countless hours of talking via IM/MSN/gtalk/sms the cookbook was finally printed, cut, and taped/glued and sent to Canada to get bound and sent to the PO box. Yay! Bunkee i would offer to buy u a drink, but u live ini canada.. have fun.. sorry i had problems with my cutter on some of the edges :|
