Committee Reports


CJT's review of Little Brother will be going up soon.


A box of magazines was sent off Monday.

We have books to give to the prefrosh!

We have bookmarks to give to the prefrosh! Jasmine drew them and KR cut them out. Yay Jasmine and Kevin!


Hasslecomm injured Libcomm last night. We hope they will work out their differences amicably.

Robert Jordan writes too many books.


Submit to TZ! It will be published RSN!

JFC is writing reviews of books by authors he's never read before. There is a reason he has not read some of them before.


Smilescomm did some work.

The ring-tailed purge made the A-K hardcovers pretty. Why is it called the ring-tailed purge? Animals, handwave handwave. The next one can be called the tufted purge.

Panthercomm was done.

Bluebellcomm is being done by YT.


Old Business

Nothing happened last week.

Battlestar Galactica had its season premiere. So did Doctor Who. Torchwood had its season finale; KR will watch the next season.

Apparently the Doctor Who Christmas special will involve the Titanic.

In the past, there were dinosaurs. In the future, there will be intelligent octopi.

It is observed that the cover of a new book looks like clipart, which inspires JSB to give a dramatic back-cover reading.

People like cheese and bacon, not always together.


New Business

YT got in the usual debate at the last second.

There are prefrosh EVERYWHERE AAAAAA

Books are forced upon the prefrosh in the library.

We need a For Sale Bucket.

We will have a booth at the Activities Midway. Help move books! Help force books upon more prefrosh!

Google Maps does not understand Boston traffic.

Ash doesn't believe that we don't bite.


Future Business

In the future, there will be more Doctor Who.

In the future, we will need a clone of JSB. Katiecomm may consume Hasslecomm.

Katie appears! Speak of the devil.

The Skinner has to do everything himself this meeting.

UROPs are coming out of the walls.

Motion to put out ripe bananas to attract more UROPS for Jake (catch and release, of course) passes 10-0-2+Spehn.

BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Carrie Keach, Pseudo-Onseck
