MITSFS Meeting Minutes

Friday, June 19, 2009

MITSFS meeting called to order, 61.2 Ksec SST, Paul Weaver, Lord High Embezzler and pseudo-Skinner, presiding; Susan Shepherd, Onseck, recording.

Minutes read.

Motion to ``Fist of an angry god!'' passes 18-4-2 plus Spehn.

eKate: Think about what happened to the last guy who used his fists! (Everyone stares at her) No, guys, I didn't mean that in a sketchy way!



Committee Reports


Someone is obsessed with Philadelphia.

Discussion of a recent trip to Philadelphia ensues, touching on the interesting condom sign, the tiger exhibit with ``the other leopard'', the kitties, some of whom were big and striped, because they were tigers, and the phallic fountain in JFK plaza.

Scanners do not live in vain

We are going to receive a grant from NESFA. Essentially, we have a lot of magzinges stored on microfilm, which is not a very durable format (and has the additional problem of being not terribly useful). We would like to move it from microfilm to a better, more durable format, such as the Intarweb.

Discussion of Cordwainer Smith ensues. He was pretty awesome.


Old Business

Usual Albanian election! Usual Albanian protest! Usual Fist of an Angry God! Usual Iranian dictatorship!


New Business

Stuff is happening in Iran.

ConCertino is happening this weekend.


Future Business

In the future, eKate will go ``Poof'' and appear in Ohio.

In the future, Tennesee will be hot.

The Skinner has no tail at all...

The meeting ends by song and by pseudo-Skinnerial decree.

BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
Susan Shepherd, Onseck
