Committee Reports


We got about one-eighth of the freshman class to sign up at the Midway.

We need to get rid of lots of boxes from the library this week. A keyholder who can rent a Uhaul should help.


Old Business

PW: The TARDIS rematerialized on the Great Dome from Sunday night to Monday night.

ESK walks in and asks why there is a coffin.

That's not a coffin, it's a pirate chest!

ESK may be a pirate.

Discussion of the incompetence of Somali pirates who attack US Navy ships.

ESK doesn't know the current going cost of AK-47s. PW and KCR think they must cost on the order of ten dollars. Ammo might cost more.

Unusual motion. Unusual second. Unusual vote. Unusual complaint. Usual dictatorship.


New Business

PW: The frosh are here! But not in that coffin.

DWR: Seldon showing of Fourth Doctor Doctor Who tonight if anyone actually comes to it!

ESK: Jesus Christ Superstar tonight and further nights, being performed by Musical Theatre Guild!


Future Business

PW: In the future it will be term!

ESK: In the future there might be frosh here.

PW: Maybe next week?

PW: In the future I will get rid of these boxes. And an electronic checkout system. And a Twilight Zine. And Duke Nukem Forever will come out.

DWR: Actually, according to PC World, that's happening in 2011!

ESK thought that SIR was going to be here, because Zephyr said so. She checks for him in the pirate chest.

And the Skinner was driven into a pirate chest through singing. Sadly, it was not a very sturdy pirate chest.

BING! Meeting adjourned, 68.4 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
lemur (DWR), Onseck
