MITSFS meeting called to order, 1700 SST, Ed Keyes, President and Skinner, presiding; Kat Allen, Onseck, recording.
Jackie is an E-Bay addict, but has never sold anything. She naively volunteers to sell books for us.
Motion: Commend the reading of the minutes as eloquent, multiloquent,
grandiloquent and (polysyllabic)
Chickens 2-0-4+Spehn because ``big words are scary''
Motion to commend the minutes as ``everyone else sucks''
Does nothing 3-3-2+Spehn
One of the Bluebellcomm prentices
Motion: to commend Jamie for sounding like a Dirk Gently character.
Motion: to stare at Cassie, who is not Margaret
Motion: A suffusion of Yellow
Discussion of books mutating into Sandman, Cassie's response to being stared at, and the people in the Gor books.
Motion: Albanian Jackie and anyone who touches the Gor books
We did, however, get some pointers to other potential sources of funding or ways to pay back loans. (Readercon, not Boscone since they get their money from NESFA, Arisia)
There is a likely chance that some messages have been passed to levels of Benedict's infrastructure and not been passed to WarCouncil.
Sunday and Monday people unofficially from the Cambridge Public Library came by and went through a bunch of our excess and picked out 400ash paperbacks and 100ash hard backs, which we sold them at a 50% discount to replenish their science fiction section. They also took about 2/3 of the non-sf romance box, and some mysteries.
7-8 boxes of Hasslecomm disappeared, and were exchanged for money! Hooray!
Timewarp to WarCouncil:
ARM reports: ``We need a formal proposal from CRSP, yuck Benedict will get back to us about the money.'' CRSP gets involved in anything $10,000 or more, and anything involving 2 or more construction trades. ``This explains why Stata was done as 9000 separate projects''-BTS
``And that would explain the angles...''-JM
``I've heard that a camel is a horse designed by committee, but this is the first time I've seen a demonstration''-Y
Joe has completed the shelving!
Motion: Barr all plants from the Library
Discussion of Mandarin and Cantonese pronunciation, and printing presses which do and do not have moveable type. Discussion of Kanji as the world's longest-running practical
Motion: Use Jackie's banana-tassled sword to carve LaVerdes bananas
into kanji characters
``Thus my sword has been used to cut the meeting short''
Meeting adjourned, 1730 SST.
