Bonus Pre-meeting Quote: ``It's a heliobacterpylori! It's so cute!!!'' -SEB
MITSFS meeting called to order, 1700 SST, Ed Keyes, President and Skinner, presiding; Kat Allen, Onseck, recording.
Move to accept the minutes as being subversive Passes 3-1-1+Spehn
We have a third copy of the Dune short story, and two of them have CDs.
MobComm bought a new kind of double... New Shelf code!
We have a whole series of ``Angel'' books, because a Long Long Time Ago, JFC was told to get the Buffy books, but had not been aware that there were also Angel books, so we got all the ones that should've been trickling in over the last three years.
Discussion of why remaindered books are not always bad books, and ``The Book That Almost Killed Baen''
Our copy of the new Bujold book is a signed first edition. The door is now a signed first edition--or so it claims, though we have not found anything other than ``Jade's mark'' that could be a signature.
Motion: invite T.C. Skinner to come and sign the Library
Liz Barnes came in and donated a new book.
As requested at the last meeting, though more or less by coincidence, JFC has requested a Bananimelephant.
Albanian Motion against Brad (again)
Does nothing 4-4-2+Spehn
We have a banana-colored heliobacterpylori.
Discussion of which buildings at MIT would be best defensible when attacked by rampaging armies or a siege. Brad suggests Draper.
Motion: Condemn the lack of banana-colored architecture around MIT.
Discussion of cool things in Salem.
Discussion of cool Halloween display in Pearl Art in Central
KHA is evaluating our need for office supplies. We will be investigating the possibility of finding more small orange dots.
We're out of Membership Cards -- APO has not gotten back to us, but we've gotten 60 new people (not renewals) since May.
The Vice got us new pillows! Pillowcases are coming.
She also got a fine.
``Can she use it as a down payment?''
Albaniam Motion to Malcolm:
``Is there any business at all?''-ED
``Somebody Sing!'' -JFC
``There's NO business like SHOW business, like NO business I KNOW!'' -Brad
Meeting adjourned as the Skinner flees the show tunes.
