Since the beginning of 2015, I've been the honorary cookie person for the group. My job is to bring tasty treats to the group meetings to compliment the delicious coffee that Kieron makes.

Every so often, we collect money from everyone to pay for the cookies, and our funds are running low. We'll have to get some more cash during the group meeting today. Wanting to make this a smooth process, I dove into the recesses of our old minutes from previous group meetings to find out the rates each person pays ($5 for grad students, $20 for profs etc).

Using my mad UNIX skills, I started grepping around for the word "cookie" and oh me oh my did I find something marvelous. The following is the output I received after typing "grep cookies *.tex" into our minutes subdirectory:

130723.tex:Kevin also has to pay but wonders if not eating the cookies means he can get out of it. There is a cookie mandate, however.  The tax collector is Raphael for those who still need to pay. No visitors are charged.

140422.tex:Justin:  Are cookies ever accomplished?\\
140603.tex:The cookies are slightly stale and in low supply.  Raphael was doing so good as temporary group manager.  Was.
140708.tex:Kieron just stole Tony's cookie.  Justin laughed hard -- maybe unreasonably hard.
