This past weekend was definitely full of labor (of love.)
I headed out to Oakland on Friday to work on Sanjay’s book. I knew there was a lot to do before Tuesday’s deadline, but I didn’t realize I would be at his place for 4 days straight! It’s been great seeing this book from its early stages in March ’07 all the way to the final details. It feels special to be part of this project and to have Sanjay in my daily life ever since I got to SF. I’ve dedicated myself to *PMH and it’s inspiring to have someone close in my life working on the same foundation, South Asian pop culture.
I can’t wait for this book to drop, it’s gonna make a lot of waves.
We went thru every page on screen and in print a number of times, bringing out a finer tooth for each round
After working nonstop, we started taking shifts, so we wouldn’t burn out.
Time to clock in….
We took a nice break on Sunday and headed to Marin….
hung out at the beach for a minute….
and then headed back to work….with some breaks in between….
added some late night tacos in the mix…..
This massage chair at Pixar is so intense, I need one!
The 5 days were fueled by chai, eggs, coffee and take out.
I finally got back home on Monday night. Cleaned up, made some final changes on Tuesday morning, and dropped off the final files to Chronicle. Here’s Emily the Editor holding the final book on the thumb drive. Thanks for the lunch Chronicle! Man, I definitely got loopy after that daytime wine. Look for the book on March 1, 2010!!
