MITSFS Meeting Minutes
Friday, December 18, 2009
MITSFS meeting called to order, 61.2 Ksec SST, Paul Weaver, Lord High Embezzeler and pseudo-Skinner, presiding; Susan Shepherd, Onseck, recording.
Motion to commend last week's minutes for accurately predicting this week's Ice Age fails 3-6-3 plus Spehn.
Usual motion. Unusual silence. Usual dictatorship.
ESK: I hear Joe Haldeman is the new SFWA Grand Master.
There is chocolate in the library if anyone wants more. SAS: Wait, there's CHOCOLATE?!? (Shortly later) Om nom nom nom.
In the future, there may be more Doctor Who Christmas specials.
In the future, more people should read The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie.
In the future, there will be winter break and IAP. And hopefully, there will be more people to see Avatar.
In the future, our collection may become more complete. We have the one book written by God, but not the other two. We have the Bible and the Bhagavad-Gita, but not the Torah or the Koran.
Motion to make the signs in MITSFS banana-colored in order to make them more prominently visible to patrons fails 3-10-1 plus Spehn.
The pseudo-Skinner has no bing at all, bing at all, bing at all, the pseudo-Skinner has no bing at all, just a little thump.
BING! Meeting adjourned, 66.6 Ksec SST.
