Committee Reports

War Council

Warcomm: We're talking to Phil to kick the ASA since... they haven't moved!


Pianocomm: Yay, we have prentices


Psuedo-Panthercom: We have overflow for the first time in a while. Its either the fault of the snow, or the boxes of new books.

If you put RJ books in a compressor, you get two types of juice that *don't mix*. Its extruded fantasy prduct!


Jourcomm: We found Andrew and hes looking for someone to do layout. Same as a year ago, but now Kat is willing to layout, so maybe its really real soon now now.

Move to apoint Rebecca Ass(assin)com passes 12-4-6 plus Spehn.

Jamie: When you're not expecting it, thats when you get the subtle chainsword in the back.


Old Business

We got new stuff, now in panthercom.

We still have extra Analogs, since they're coming to us twice.

Margret: Extra analogs make good armor inserts

Jamie: Like spam containers.

A boring discusion about which zines we have occurs, which is not nearly interesting enough for me to record.

Margret: Does this mean that RJ books could be an inexpensive alternative to Tank armor?

Jamie: It would be too heavy to move.



New Business

Rebecca tries to assassinate Skinner, but fails to remember that Kat is omnipotent inside the library.

Speculation about what powers the skinner's powers occurs in which the souls in the gavel are brought up, but we eventually decide that its the gavel.

Margret: Burning souls smell bad, like burning hair.


Future Business

In the future there will be a TIF, and a Spring Schelual

In the future there will be term.

Miller Motion: Fails 19-14-2 plus Spehn.

Motion: Send Margaret to Florida for the recount fails 5-7-3 plus Spehn.

Malcom says something inscrutable.

Albanian the usual suspect: Maclom 24-22-3

People note that our albania link now goes to a wiki, meaning that... something.

Miller Motion appears to fail 16-7-2 plus Spehn.

Move to reserve ``America is a banana-colored'' fails 1-5-2 plus Spehn.

Matrix Motion passes 7-5-8+Spehn

Looks like arithmetic was weird that night.

Meeting adjourned, 1800 SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Brian Sniffen, Onseck
