MITSFS Meeting Minutes

Friday, June 11, 2004

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

Minutes read.

A shriek from the Vice passes 9-3-0 plus Spehn. Hanh-hanh, says she.


Committee Reports

Frustrated Author Comm

She says she is as whiny as ever. She has become one of those whiny bitter pseudo artists.

A motion to send the intelligentsia of the Library into a very small room to find an intelligent reason not to write passes 7+Slinky-3-4 plus Spehn.


TV Guide asks if anything can be done about American Idol. They suggest allowing nonviewers to vote.

A motion to have reality TV destroyed goes unseconded for a while. Then a motion to have reality destroyed happens, several seconds happen, and then a vote is held which passes 12-0-2 plus Spehn. A motion for a matrix vote fails for lack of a second, though the Thunderbunny says it's a bad joke. All other motions on the floor fail by Skinnerial decree.


The ASA has been told whom to talk to regarding stuffing envelopes, Jen Clay.


Old Business

We still have a disturbing stuffed animal.

We have a spare shelf. The skinnner, in her omniscience, knows why, but asks Jamie to amuse him. He says it's the same reason as last time.

We got mail from Andy Su about his new address.

If J is still VGG in seventeen years and fifty-one weeks, and no other keyholders born in the interim are available to take the job, BTS agrees to take it.

We can charge fines to bursar's accounts. This is particularly terrifying to those still in the thrall of the Bursar. The Onseck, having been released from bondage, giggles.

Some evil laughter chickens 4-1-6 plus Spehn.

Usual Miller Motion fails 7-13-1 plus Spehn.

ALGOL(Condemn the UA)1BING!

New Business

Chronicles of Riddick looks like a WH40K movie -- well, Vice and Onseck think so.

The Onseck raves about Hackmaster.

The Libraries want the Pinkdex. They will pay us for it. Shadowrunners will be dispatched to exfiltrate it.


Future Business

There'll be a Firefly movie.

The shelves from Avenue Victor Hugo have become ripe and are indeed overripe. They want us to arrange a pickup. This must be done by the fifteenth or unspecified terrible things will happen.

It is observed that the Library is seeming really fried tonight.

A motion to use lower-fat oils to fry the library, such as banana oil, passes 7-1-7 plus Spehn.

Meeting adjourned, 1600 SST. No, shoot. Oh, whatever, we'll deal with the time shift later.

Respectfully submitted,
Brian Sniffen, Onseck

Wait, that's indisputable!
