MITSFS Meeting Minutes

Friday, November 5, 2004

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

Minutes read.

We commend lyrical spherical diabolical denizens of the deep for allowing the blue shinies to make it into the minutes. 12-2-Squirel on the gavel block plus Spehn.


Committee Reports


Paige and Hillary are new Prentices. Yay.

JSS points out ``Don't be like me''


OSC. Soon. Sunday, November 7, and there are still some open slots for the dinner with him.

Also, we could use workers for crowd control.


The small change policy has been discontinued. We can't make reimbursements out of even petty cash.


We have received two funny Aussie books. There's a box of miscellaneous other books on the way. And a box of...something else. I forget what.


The boxes of books to be rebound will be leaving soon.


TIF rotation really, really, really soon.


Old Business

The Onseck is almost albanianed for understanding Malcomm's jokes, and then declared a Blue Shiny 12-4-2 plus Spehn, and thus more powerful than we can imagine.

It's pointed out that we have a crowd. Paige explains this as ``I poke people until they come!''.

Still no right lock on 401-D. TZ real soon now. We're down a couple of active keyholders -- they're still around, just boring right now.


New Business

A squirrel has been brought to the library. It is duly blue-stickered and removed from the library, with help.

"Remember, remember the fifth of November.
Gunpowder, Treason and Plot.
I see no reason why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot."

It's the 399th anniversary.

Justin is Albanianed, I think for understanding the Onseck's votes.


Future Business

The Onseck moves to have the pope burned, and it is instead decided that we should blow up Parliament on the 400th anniversary next year.

First Miller motion fails 6-20-4 plus Spehn.

We still have a ladder. Perhaps we'll throw it out.

LHE moves for an explanation of bananas and such, this is finger motioned.

Jamie moves for an explanation of bananas, finger motions, miller motions, and skinner has no tail at all 16-1-0-3 plus Spehn. Yes, really.

Meeting adjourned, 1730 SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Brian Sniffen, Onseck
