MITSFS Meeting Minutes

Friday, November 3, 2000

MITSFS meeting called to order, 1700 SST, Jade Wang, President and Skinner, presiding. Ed Keyes is the black-clad Onseck.

Minutes read. There were no motions regarding the reading of the minutes. The Onseck threw a dirty look at Apathycomm.


Committee Reports

Panthercomm: Did lots of work, lots of stuff got processed.

There followed a confused discussion about updating the labels on the Keyholder Board.

Alohalenscomm: We have prints of various photos, including one of Yevgeniya hugging a door.

Bluebellcomm: Is covering a book as we speak. And making a horrible botch of it, too.

Pseudo-Pianocomm: Would Pianocomm like to say something?

Pianocomm: Foley's a keyholder now.

[Jamie] ``He looks just like that drawing except three-dimensional.''

Jadecomm: Need to issue Foley his robes for the worship ceremony. The Keyholder Notes now say, ``Thou shalt worship me.''

Motion: Approve the Skinner for being explicit. Passes $12-$0-$0+Spehn.

What money do they use in Spain? Liras, spainos, and rubles were proposed.

Motion: Send a special ambassador to Spain to find out what they use. ``What they use for what?'' Passes something-nothing-nothing+Spehn.


Old Business

Discussion of aging effects. Realizing that we're already as old as we were going to be in the year 2000.

Motion: Condemn the young people! Passes infinity-3-2+Spehn.

Waiting for the Alumni Office to get back to us. Ugh, cliffhangers.

[Jamie] ``You can hang my cliff anytime.''


New Business

A slightly new reimbursement form, with our address on it now. Is that a new font, or just bad old copying masquerading as bold? It needs a banana-shaped watermark, or perhaps a font composed of bananas.

Bluebellcomm is still attempting to cover the book.

Jade says something about cute dragons. ``It's cute, that's all that matters.''

The safe is now officially ``The Sacks'' after Robert Sacks, who recently passed away. He was responsible for setting up our library fund and more than a little responsible for its growth, including right up to the end, with a final donation made through his life insurance policy.

The Onseck attempts to record the next part of the meeting, but all that comes out is a loud BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! courtesy of the MITSFS Minutes Censoring Bureau.

Motion: Approve all MITSFS minutes, past and present, as being inappropriate. Chickens 4-0-4+Spehn.

``I'm not wearing any pants, film at 11:00.'' Discussion of Jade's clothes.

Our door got painted, including the parts you never see. A call for a tall person to replace our sign. Discussion of lighting inside and outside the Library.

A MITSFS entry was submitted for the upcoming printed IAP guide.


Future Business

A donation will be picked up tomorrow.

[John] ``We can't end the meeting before I finish this book. I did a really bad job, but I'm sticking with it.''

Discussion of the new Vice pictures. ``Wow, you look like Jayhawk!''

No one is seconding anything, despite several golden opportunities.

Motion: Have a motion with a banana and just get this over with. Passes 10-2-6+Spehn.

Meeting adjourned, 1720 SST. ``And I sort of like almost finished the book.''

Respectfully submitted,
Ed Keyes, Onseck
