Under no circumstances whatsoever will I be doing a matrix motion for you people.

I am not going to make the Onseck do a matrix vote.

``Why are the minutes inaccurate?''
``Because I wrote them that way!''
``The minutes are always right!''

Various non-matrix motions chicken.

Committee Reports

``I'm going to channel Kevin very loudly.''

Pain of Space-comm


``Still no word from NESFA, despite them claiming they'd get word to us about the money after their meeting on Feb 1 (and despite my poking). If I don't hear from them soon, I'll corner their president at Boskone.''

Cell 25 Morale Officer

``Is there interest in Friday SF showings?'' ``Yes.''


``Are you interested in selling things at Boskone?''

``Signing up for hours makes you a better person!''

``I'll sign up for hours!''

``I smile! I'm friendly!''
``Ignore the brains!''


``You need to poke people who owe you money a little more vigorously.''
``Oh. Yeah. Karl, you owe us money.''

``The Student Society of Physics Students? You guys need to talk to the Society of English Majors.''


``Lord help us all, I hope they get back to me soon.''


Old Business

``Oh, oh, oh, Committee Reports!''

``It's official, OK? Move on.''

``That groundhog was a lying bastard.''
``Burn him! Burn!''

``How does he talk back?''
``He writes letters!''

``I want to Albanian the universe.''
``I don't think that works.''
``It worked for Albania!''

``Second the motion!''

``Oh whatever, you're asleep like a groundhog. Motion fails.''


New Business

``I passed 18.06!''
``I think we're obliged to have a matrix vote!''

``There was a new Trek trailer. It was good. It was during the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is a game ...''

``Term started! It's kind of like Blood Bowl!''

``Unusual repetition of the usual motion!''


Future Business


``I guess all motions chicken. I guess we're still here.''
