Committee Reports


Our august Thunderbunny, Miss Katie Ray, sent the library a holiday card. It has a knight and princess riding on the back of a huge flying (but wingless) pig.

She reports that the Singapore Zoo has Bornean and Sumatran orangutangs, and that she almost sent us one, but then decided we wouldn't have room. She reports that the weather is warm, but that she can't get avocados (the two places that have claimed to sell them have in fact sold (1) peppers and (2) salsa) or chocolate and that this is very sad.

Motion to wish her a happy new year PASSES by pseudoSkinnerial decree!

Also, Aaron Ucko (Vice, 1999-2001) and Yevgeniya Ucko (member, similar vintage) sent us a holiday card with photos-they spawned!


CAK (Keach) is joining Pianocomm.


We have a new keyholder, Kaleb Ayalew (KAA). He will be on Picniccomm and Hasselcomm.


We will be doing a showing next week. We haven't decided on the film yet, though, so you should tell us if you have ideas.


Old Business

In the past we sold books at the science fiction marathon!


New Business

Tonight is the Harry Potter: Year Seven Yule Ball!

Tomorrow night is the Shakespeare Ensamble's 24-Hour Show! It's 20:00 tomorrow Twenty Chimneys in W20.


Future Business

In the future DWR will stop being confused by the geography of this campus.

In the future one of our members will no longer be attending meetings because she will be across the Atlantic.

In the future we'll get the real Skinner back to run meetings!

In the future Emi will stop eating books and become a member.

Discussion of eligibility of babies for membership and the ADA ensues.

Motion to replace all books in Emi's diet with bananas PASSES 10-2-1 plus Spehn!

BING! Meeting adjourned, 68.4 Ksec SST.

Respectfully submitted,
lemur (DWR), Onseck
