Office copies of the Vera McGinnis issue hit yesterday. Everything looks great but the bindery has screwed up for the second issue in a row. Page 14 jumps to 17. Half the issues sent to us cannot be used or sent to advertisers. Very troubling. I have asked Robert Ray to look at printing bids. If you get your issue this week and the page count is wrong, please contact me right here and I’ll send you a good one.
Tried to work on BOW cover but didn’t get much accomplished. Too much going on in office. We gave the ad department an extension and this causes much grief in production. Talked to Robert R. long after everyone else had gone home last night and his valid question is: “Why am I the only one with a real deadline?”
Deena came in from NY at about noon. She has a dog named Buddy with her (air-freighted two days earlier and kept at her old boyfriend’s house in Tempe). We met her and Pete and Buddy at El Conquistador for dinner (it was mole night, $28 cash). Deena had to go outside and sit with the dog while the rest of us ate (good training for when she has kids). Got everyone home around eight in the evening. Of course Peaches is real thrilled with a new dog in her space and she is a border collie so the nipping and sniping began in earnest about 8:10. Deena was also upset because she wanted to keep Buddy in her old room but Kathy said no, so the two of them are asleep out here in the studio.
