Committee Reports


A break is taken for the Onseck to open emacs, as she was taking minutes by hand, and this is condemned as old-fashioned.

"It was a lot slower to start up when you had toget graduate students to sing your .emacs file before you could open anything"-Jamie


Kendra is great! She shelved the To-Be-Shelved books. Of course, there was an overflow box hiding, so now the shelf is full again, oops.

Eric wants to be a prentice. Kevin said so.


Naked greased muppets with most of the fur left on

Move to catapukt the Onseck into a randomly chosen area of space time, and catapult the Vice in the opposite direction. Fails for lack of a second.


Kevin is on the CAC Advisory Board. Phil Walsh volunteered that the should talk about getting us more space, because we're too crowded.

Motion to sacrifice a fatted ox to Phil Walsh Passes 17-0-1+Spehn


Old Business

Meanwhile, the Vice is waging an (unsuccessful) series of assassination attempts against the new Skinner. Vice: ``My coup will succeed by ranged weapons!''


New Business

Margaret is moving to the Hinterlands. "We oculd just glaze her" "She looks pretty glazed already"

MHG will have money, which she wants to give to the library.

We got four boxes from Amazon today, and a review copy! The Dexmistress and Mobcomm are planning to put up NegDex, books so new they haven't arrived yet.

There is a new review dex!


Future Business

``10s of thousands of books will be vanishing from libraries across the world next Thursday''-BTS
``Thursday? What will happen with them?''-Jamie
``Mostly they'll just get checked out'' -BTS

Motion to dispatch a representative to DC with books, to talk to the peopel and read books to keep from going bananas.

Motion to send both Kelseys to Switzerland with a Banana
Fails 6-8-2+Spehn

Miller motion 5-4-1+Spehn
Miller motion 1-0-5+Spehn
determinant : 0, all motions chicken

Motion to properly lubricate all the consonants in the alphabet and feed them to Jamie with potassium supplements thus enabling him to have a banana-based vowel movement.

Things are thrown at the Vice, but somehow the meeting ended, so apparently it passed by Skinnerial headache.

BING! Meeting adjourned, 1830 SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Katherine Allen, Onseck
