MITSFS Meeting Minutes
Friday, November 10, 2006
MITSFS meeting called to order, 1700 SST, Kevin Riggle, President and Skinner, presiding; Kat Sniffen, Onseck, recording.
A motion to approve the reading of the minutes as rapid and clear fails 7-9-1+Spehn. The Onseck complains that that is the slowest she's read the minutes in some time. This is only partly because she doesn't read them out loud at home, though she does always read them.
An alum appears, Whitfield Diffie, announcing that ``I try to come every decade, whether I need it or not''. He last appeared June 2, 2000.
Discussion of Arabic and German membership sheets
Cecila Tan is running an eBay auction to have someone write a short story to ones specifications. BTS reports that the bidding is going extremely high.
Alumna Ariel Segall is the Pandemonium Iron Gamer Miniature Painter.
Some complaints about the fact that the Skinner announced the New Business are resolved with a motion to timewarp back and not announce it. The motion passes by Skinnerial Decree.
JM tells us about the Star Trek Barbie in the Sacks, frightening the Skinner. It is not brought out, on threat of violence.
Discussions about Amazon shipping delays and the fact that Ingram did officially refuse to deal with us result in a lot of quietness.
KR has a friend at CMU, where they are filming a Dennis Quade movie about smart people.
In the Future we will acquire a new picture of WDS. It will not have a collar, because ``I don't do that'', says AlohaLenscomm. Discussion about
The Skinner moves that the next TZ cover not be Banana-colored. It passes 18-0-0+Spehn. Onseck notes that I intend it to be blue. Bananas should not be blue.
