Elections are in a few minutes. If you didn't already know that, there's probably no hope for you.

Picnic tomorrow! We got Nimbus a really big watermelon so hopefully it won't rain PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! Last year's watermelon was insufficiently virgin.

All other committees have been decreed (Skinnerially) to be unimportant.
