Friday, October 17, 2008

MITSFS meeting called to order, 61.2 Ksec SST, Ekaterina Kuznetsova, President and Skinner, presiding; Christian Ternus, Onseck, recording.

Minutes read.

Motion to commend the minutes for causing Diane to appear, not only on time, but early passes 15-4-1 plus Spehn


Committee Reports


Today we are trying something new. Today we are trying to bing in such a way that doesn't cause the Onseck to lose hearing.

Motion to commend the glorious and alarming Skinner for her slightly glorious hair color passes 14-2-4 plus Spehn


Still want prentii! Where'd the prentice go? It-prentii-prentice-pronoun may be hiding back there.

Motion to reboot Libcomm passes 14-5-4 plus Spehn

The Transparent Committee

David Brin is still coming to MIT on October 29 at 8:30 PM. He said he wanted to come, but he never mentioned leaving!

Motion to create a shelfcode for visiting authors passes 14-5-6 plus Spehn

We haven't had a sticker prentice in some time.

Lee's brain isn't working right now. If she expects the Inquisition, we obviously can't have it.


Old Business

The Saga Continues: BTS got his check! Any number of Ns will do. ``I'll hold on to this for a year or two, thank you.''

A member shows up to inquire as to the status of his donation.

Katie voted!

A few hours ago, there was a student protest in Lobby 7.



New Business

There is no usual debate, this is the usual (benevolent) dictatorship.

There will be a Forever War movie!

The Onseck's sister is here. Oh, that's who you are! She also does a surprisingly good job of Ternus' facial structure. ``Um, thank you?'' Now we're just going to move on.

BTS: ``I proposed a series of slash fiction involving Kirby, the video game char-''
BTS: ``-acter, and...''

The Onseck should stop ending his sentences with backslash-N.


Future Business

There will be a run of Final Fantasy during Halloween - you can get a two-for-one on your costume if you so choose!

In the future, we will run a third-party candidate for the Banana Party.

We need to take the motion off the floor and dust it off a little.

Some motion or another chickens, it's unclear.

BANANA! chickens 13-13-13 plus Spehn

The meeting ends with the Adjournment Song.

BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Christian Ternus, Onseck
