12th Day After Christmas
MITSFS meeting called to order, 1700 SST, Brian Sniffen, Vice and Pseudo-Skinner, presiding; Kat Sniffen, Onseck, recording.
Minutes from 12/22 are read.
Motion to condemn the 12/29 pseudo-onseck for not getting his minutes online passes 12-4-5+Spehn. The 12/29 minutes are also read.
A motion approving those minutes as being brief and to the point passes 8-1-2+Spehn.
John Greever sent us a story about the founding of the society and the backroom deals among Phi Kappa Sigma brothers who helped us get recognition. He is also sending us a donation of books.
A motion to add him to the Socity's Christmas List passes 12-0-0.
We should probably get a slide for the Sci-Fi Marathon. They will probably not be showing Snakes On A Plane 5 times, because it's really expensive.
There is a really cool video on YouTube with Snoopy fighting the Red Baron. They actually built the barn, and flew it. (Small-scale) It is a U2 video, though apparently they have a neat video for several of their new songs.
Hicks in Florida have been being abducted by aliens and have had their city cousins made them a blog. It appears to be an advertisement for a movie about said Floridians.
Discussion about bad movies ensues.
``David Bowie made good movies. At least in Labyrinth he entertained
half the audience by wearing leather pants.'' - BTS
``Ooh! I need to go watch Laybrinth again!'' -Andi
Arisia is this coming weekend! They may overflow, because they have a really small hotel. Check online and prepare to be potentially turned away. (They lost the Park Plaza because some mundanes got freaked by the FFF, and the hotel management decided Arisia was too similar to risk.)
``Sounds like they need pants.''
``They could borrow them from David Bowie''
A motion to flay and tan enough banana skins to make leather pants for everyone in the Society passes 11-4-2+Spehn.
BING! Meeting adjourned, 1830 SST.
