MITSFS meeting minutes

Friday, October 15, 1999

MITSFS meeting called to order, 17:00 SST, October 15, 1999.

Jade Wang, pseudo-skinner presiding.

John Carr, pseudo-onseck (so whatever happened to Natasha?)

The pseudo-onseck read the minutes of last week's meeting.

On request from the skinner, the pseudo-onseck read the minutes of last week's meeting out loud.

Motion: commend minutes as the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth! Despite what Jade may say. Passes 13-4-2+Spehn. BING!

Pianocomm: J. Goldstone wants to de-dormant.

Pianocomm2: A prentice (Stefanie) shelved books! Just like the ``So you want to become a keyholder'' document says.

Pseudo-Jadecomm (Justin): Roswell was ehhnnn.

Pianocomm3: Armanard is here. Motion to say ``hi'' passes 9-1-6+Spehn.

Motion: ``I think so'' passes 4-0-3+Spehn (Spehn is apparently less than 1).


Old business

JM reminds JPW to bing.

Motion: Commend Jay for having been clairvoyant. Passes 9-2-1+Spehn.

We have a person here who was a keyholder before someone was something.

T-shirts in another week. Add ``T-shirts RSN'' to Algol.

Justin has a pointy knife. Jade has a gavel. Hers is longer.

Jade adds ``weight also matters.''

Jamie: query about ex-MITSFS member Russell Seitz led Jamie to find a ``Boskonian'' reprinting a Globe article from 1969 saying that he had the parts to make a nuclear missile.

Justin feels old. Jade feels ancient. ``13?'' asks Jamie. ``No, 100'' replies Jade.

The usuals

New Business

There is food here.

Jamie: We got spammed by a company I won't name.

There is a brief discssion about Pinkdex changing fonts from Bookman to Times.

Future Business

Motion: Print Pinkdex in London? (fails, no second)

Motion: ... or Dingbats? (fails, no second)

There is talk about mailing Andrew back to IBM, followed by a motion to squash any proposals that would involve stripping Andrew. Motion passes lots and lots to some to very little plus Spehn. Andrew remains unstripped.

Motion: say ``hi'' to eggplant. Chickens a few to zero to lots plus Spehn.

Motion: commend pseudo-onseck for being incapable of writing and listening at the same time. Passes 8-0-2+Spehn.

The ASA rerooming process is starting. There is a long discussion including ``Damnation Room,'' ``Annex Laverdes!'' and discussion of taking over the LSC space when they go broke.

Motion: Just kill LSC and get this discussion over with! Passes 8-0-1+Spehn.

Jade laughs at Justins little, pointy ... knife.

Sitcom: ``Battle Jade'' premieres next semester. Everyone ``aww''s Jade.

A motion to end the meeting is declared out of order by the pseudo-onseck. ``You should at least put a banana in it'' passes a lot to very, very little to less plus Spehn.

Meeting adjourned at something like seventeen-something SST.
