MITSFS Meeting Minutes

Friday, March 30, 2001

MITSFS meeting called to order, 1700 SST, Jamie Morris, Chancellor and Pseudo-Skinner, presiding. Ed Keyes is the Emotion-Engined Onseck.

Minutes read.

Motion: Condemn the minutes as fast and abbreviated. Chickens very philosophically philosophical conundrum-philosophical quandary-0+Spehn.


Committee Reports

Mobcomm: Eight books this week, restarting the cycle. We'll fit a curve next week. One-point fits are easier, though. We got the Ultimate Mallworld for jhawk.

Hasslecomm boxes are being converted to for-sale boxes at a good clip. A discussion of ``used-book arbitrage''.

Pseudo-Rosfap: The pile is a little larger.

Pianocomm: A dormant prentice, Kat Allen, is un-dormanting herself, yay. John proposes a project to look up books we don't have, in order to fulfill the library's purpose in becoming complete. The next step in Gapdex, perhaps.

Pseudo-Jourcomm: TZ RSN.

Jadecomm: Jade is feeling ill and is hiding in her room. The squad has been dispatched.


Old Business

The donation from last week was picked up, consisting of six boxes including all Tolkien stuff imaginable and some multimedia additions to our collection.

The extra shelves were ordered.

Bluebellcomm is lame, lazy, and shiftless. John covered one book, and didn't sniff any more isopropyl alcohol.

We're getting even more rain, and John is worried because he's only fifty feet above sea level. John has a spider in his apartment and is happy about it.

The ALGOL is immediately triggered to prevent John telling his cockroach-in-the-mouth story.


New Business

We should put up the plastic sheets before we go. Eeek! We have a leak now! No, wait, it's just Jamie hallucinating.


Future Business

In the future a section of shelving will be dedicated to the memory of the Schultz. The wording of the plaque is being worked out.

John suggests we build a dock out the window to prepare for flooding up to the fourth floor.

Motion: Come out from under the banana-colored couch and pray for the return of the banana-colored light in the sky (amendment) while reaffirming the Society's faith in the Great Pumpkin. Passes philosophical conundrum-philosophical quandary-rainbow-colored Slinky+Spehn.

Meeting adjourned, 1745 SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Ed Keyes, Onseck
