Transcript Editor in Chief Well, kids, it has been an eventful year, hasn't it? What with every last person (including myself, Dick and people who don't even work here) being fired each time they walked through the door, I suppose it's a wonder that we managed to get a book out in the first place. I guess sometimes it's a good thing that people weren't listening, Matthew. If the constant firings weren't enough, we had to deal with the inexplicable - but unbelievably loud - banging coming from upstairs, an icy cold office environment, proofs that took three months to come back (and always arrived during a deadline), and missing pictures because our ghetto computers didn't collect right. On top of that, there was the combination photo week/deadline on Valentine's Day (sorry, Michelle), and of course, my freaking out. Ladies and gentlemen, I truly don't know how we made it through. And yet we did. We made it through in spite of pictures not coming out, writers falling off the face of the earth, messages that never seemed to get to the people to whom they were sent, club officers who refused to acknowledge us after agreeing to come for an interview, and scary darkrooms whose light bulbs kept disappearing. At least we always had Matthew's emails to look forward to. I can't speak for anybody else, but I know that, despite occasional appearances, I had a really good time Whew! Editor in Chief Ashley Grubbs, incredibly, put a picture of herself on her page. This was done because Matthew threatened to find a picture and put it on himself, without Ashley's knowledge. Photo by Amarinthia Grubbs (Ashley's mother). this year. I learned some things that worked pretty well (offering pizza as incentive to attend meetings), and some things that didn't (simply calling meetings and expecting everybody to show up). And, miracle of miracles, I get to do it again. To those of you who are returning, God bless you all. Nobody knows better than y'all what you are up against. To those who are leaving the Houstonian in favor of a career, a part-time job that actually pays, or simply the opportunity to get away from me, I thank you for your hard work this year. I know it wasn't always easy, and sometimes it wasn't even fun, and I wasn't the easiest person to deal with all the time (no no, it's true). But I think it turned out really well in the end, and I believe each member of the staff has left his or her own mark on this book. Despite my propensity for rambling, I realize that I don't have the space to thank everybody who worked on this book. There are, however, a few people who deserve some mention. Cortney, thanks for taking the People section - otherwise, I'd have had to do it. Michelle, thanks for taking on extra pages, and thanks for listening to me whine. Lacie, thanks for doing the Sports section, because, yuck; and thanks for dealing with the fact that I hd no idea what to do with any of it. Sadaf, thanks for hanging in there - I know you felt like you got more than you bargained for. Lauren, thanks for hunting the Daily Cougar people down so I could bum pictures from them. Daily Cougar people, thanks for letting me bum the pictures. Kena, thanks for dropping everything to run off at my whim and take random pictures of things you didn't care about at ungodly hours of the morning/night. Richard, thanks for everything - especially your persistence. And Matthew: thanks for dealing with me. Nobody else really understands what you had to go through in order to maintain my sanity (as well as your own). Thanks for putting up with things we both know you'd rather have walked away from, and for doing this even though you were never really interested. And thanks for coming back. And we're still not using Times New Roman. It seems I've talked enough, everybody. For those of you who read the whole thing, I congratulate you. I'd give you a prize, but I'm all out of candy.
