MITSFS Meeting Minutes

Friday, May 14, 2004

MITSFS meeting called to order, 1700 SST, Kat Allen, President and Skinner, presiding; Brian Sniffen, Onseck, recording.

Minutes read, though it is noted that many details have been lost to history due to the vagaries of MIT's wireless service -- and because the Skinner and ex-Onseck doesn't have Emacs installed on her laptop..

JFC moves that archaeological expedition be mounted to recover the minutes. Passes 9-4-7 plus Spehn.


Committee Reports


Ave. Victor Hugo is still closing, now at a 75% discount

JFC has arranged to buy much of their remaining and interesting stock.

The Skinner accidentally moves that all somethings are somethinged, Margaret leaps on and seconds this in an insubordinate act which passes 10-1-2 plus Spehn

Malcolm is noted to be in Albania with something that sounds much like a weak pun, 10-9-0 plus Spehn.


JFC has taken annoying


Old Business

The Skinner also accidentally moves that she get better at the Bing. The Onseck joins the Vice in rebellion and seconds this, and it passes 10-0-1 plus Spehn. The Chancellor, sniveling toady, cements his position as Vizier

JFC's sister once ate too many strawberries and got a rash.

JFC begins describing details of octopoid sex, and is rapidly sent to Eastern Albania, where they're incomprehensible even to Western Albanians. Passes 7-5-0 plus Spehn.

Vice motions to commend the Skinner on her binging 4-0-4 plus Spehn. They got to her, too.

Term is ending. To this disappointment of the students, this fails 3-4-1 plus Spehn.

``Margaret, are we going to have to tell you the story of the Man who cried Albanian?''
``Is this the one who got eaten by a Oolf?''

Aaron and Zhenya Ucko visited us for the picnic, then went away. They may be back. Yevgeniya volunteers to be jourcomm. They also checked out 9 books between the two of them, which they will mail back to the Book Drop with some potential late fees. The VGG, she has Ways of Dealing with This Sort of Thing.


New Business

A motion to Not throw things at the skinner, using only self-propelled or melee attacks, passes 7-0-0 plus Spehn and 5-3-0 plus Spehn respectively.

Emily Warman is moving to Ohio. The society says ``Noooooo'' in unison, and is sad. One less Keyholder.


Future Business

A motion to commend the Skinner for discovering her new lusts for absolute power fails by Skinnerial Degree. By the reverse-Skinnerial rule and its applicability, this may be irony.

Brian shows off a picture of his Banana Slug, which passes 9+$31 - 4+$19 - 1+cows+$-6.

Meeting adjourned, 1730 SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Brian Sniffen, Onseck
