MITSFS Meeting Minutes

Friday, May 23, 2008

MITSFS meeting called to order, 61.2 Ksec SST, Kendra Beckler, Vice and pseudo-Skinner, presiding; David Nawi, pseudo-Onseck, recording.

Minutes read.

Kendra: ``Are there any motions? Anyone?''
Michael: ``Hey, we voted on 'no' once...?''
Kendra: ``Motion to condemn you all for not speaking up!''


``Fine, whatever.''


Committee Reports


We did work.

Donation letters were written, but there are a lot left to be written. They will get done eventually.


Kendra: ``Do tell, good angel of Hasslecomm!''
Naomi: ``Work was done, but there are lots of boxes left.''
Kendra: ``We should really start kicking our prentices to start shelving books.''

Kendra: ``We told the keyholders to go forth and finish finals, which they should have done, which would explain the little work that's been done.''


Old Business


Kendra: ``So, the universe was created a week ago...''

ALGOL, but the usual objection was almost missed.


New Business

(Pseudo-Skinner chides the psedo-Onseck for taking too many minutes.)

Finals should be over now (as of 1.5 hours ago).

Neil Gaiman is lecturing at 7 PM.

Robert Aspirin died at the age of 61.
Kendra: ``No more bad puns about myths and phules... <sniff>''
Agreed that Aspirin couldn't kill off his characters.
``He should have partnered up with George R. R. Martin!''

One more week of normal meeting hours, then meetings will start at 6 PM.
The Skinner will send a message about it... eventually.

Summer is here!
All of the Star Chamber is here for the summer for the first time in... a long time.

Michael links weather with giving up soup for lunch and compares Wagamama to Pu Pu Hot Pot.

Motion to have banana soup for dinner: fails for lack of a second.


Future Business

Naomi: ``In the future, there will be more Dr. Who.''

Kendra: ``We'll all be unhosed... Oh, isn't that supposed to be now?''

Dr. Who is referenced in today's comics.
<Michael describes the comic in which it appears.>
Michael: ``Poor Toby, he gets no respect.''
David: ``It sounds like he deserves no respect.''

Motion to worship a banana as Satan to put us out of our misery: 3-0-0 plus Spehn

BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
David Nawi, pseudo-Onseck
