MITSFS Meeting Minutes

Friday, August 15, 2008

MITSFS meeting called to order, 17:00 SST, John Carr, Vox Sciurorum and Pseudo-Skinner, presiding; Susan Shepherd, Pseudo-Onseck, recording.

Minutes read.

Motion to commend last week's group for a successful revolution. Passes 10-0-1+Spehn.


Committee Reports

FrustratedAuthorComm: I feel like my head is on a chopping block.

The Pseudo-Onseck is silly.

Pseudo-FweekComm: Some freshmen are coming. The Freshmen Arts Program folk were here earlier taking pictures of the library to impress the new freshmen. They've shot a scene in which the librarian readily gives out information about patrons.

Pseudo-FweekComm2: There should be someone here to indoctrinate the freshmen.

PhoneComm: Someone has an idea for a science fiction TV show and wants to know whether his science will make nerds cry. He may send an enquiry via email later.



Old Business

A long, long time ago, when dinosaurs ruled the earth, MHG was an engineer... and she'd make stuff. Like blaster guns out of WarHammer.

Once upon a time, MGH stabbed Hello Kitty and took her place among the cool kids.

Usual motion. Usual second, usual vote...



New Business

Gray keebles! Bananas!

The meeting now has more than four people! Yay!

Discussion of giant wrenches and assorted-size gavels ensues.



Future Business

...and the LORD did grin, and they did feast upon the lambs and carp and orangutans and breakfast cereal...

The Pseudo-Skinner commends MGH and her ability to recite dialogue both well and faster than the Pseudo-Onseck can type while laughing.

The Pseudo-Onseck will eventually stop hugging the book ``The Name of the Wind.''

Motion to have Han Solo banana the banana of bananas: Fails 6-2-7+Spehn.

Motion to harness the power of the banana-colored sun to vaporize Panhel and take their space. Passes 4-2-4+Spehn.

BING! Meeting adjourned, 17:31 SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Susan Shepherd, Pseudo-Onseck
