Committee Reports


There were a bunch of people running around last week mumbling nonsensical things. When the stack of strangely-marked papers has been fully processed, we will know whether Inventory was a success or not. We're a little worried since it appears that book-loss per unit time has increased since the last Inventory. There may be other Societies in parallell dimensions, but they're not really our concern for Inventory purposes at this time. (We might want to annex them to store our overflow, however.)


Margaret shows off her vestments.


Obligatory whine.

Vox Sciurorum (Mumbling about Rats)

The sparrows are getting better at stealing John's squirrel food.


Old Business

There are squirrels here.

The 20th anniversary of the Challenger disaster, the anniversary of the Apollo 1 disaster, and the anniversary of the Columbia disaster are all coming up within the next month or two. Sorry, NASA.



New Business

``Ah, IAP, that wonderful springtime of MIT when we don't have classess--except that it's during the winter.''

MHG: ``AG.001 (Assassin's Guild): How not to be harvested for your spleen''

The LSC Science Fiction Marathon is tomorrow night. It starts at 7ish and runs all night. They're showing Serenity, E.T., 12 Monkeys, The Empire Strikes Back, and Red Dwarf episodes. MHG: ``Oh, it's a good lineup.'' JM: ``No, no, it's supposed to be a bad lineup--the classic LSC Science Fiction marathon showed movies like Zardoz which you couldn't stand to watch sober.''

We need to schedule a Star Chamber meeting with the Dexmistress to set upcoming Library policy.


Future Business

An Albanian banana motion passes 10-1-5 plus Spehn.

Meeting adjourned, 1830 SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Kevin Riggle, Onseck
