Minutes for 1/25

Laura: Ethiopian food was a success! Coupons yet remain and are valid until april, so talk to one of us if you'd like to go in the future.
100% participation in house survey! Bravo. A passionate round of voting yielded a dead heat between White Castle and Taco Bell for the Super Bowl party.
Volunteer to help your lovely secretary cook dinner for the service auction!
We may or may not do a winter barbecue before BJO.
Jonah: BJO game? After discussion and a veto of any bodily-fluid related activities, the game is still undecided.
Anees: service auction! Many services already, but he will email us even moar ideas. Keep signing up! Also, help Blair make food. You will get good karma and first dibs on dinner.
BJ Iron Chef: Feb. 14th. An all-day, themed cooking fest to which Laura exhorts us to "bring our A game" Despite no upperclassmen having participated last year, Anees assures us it is fun.
Also Feb. 14th: KSO show! Watch Dorian and Anees do active, physical things onstage. (Not to each other, but there will only be a few people in between them...) Delicious Korean food as well. Around ten bucks, and Anees will have tix.
Sign up to go to Fogo de Chao, because it's cheap and awesome and delicious and full of the company of your housemates. Feb. 13th at 1pm-ish. Dorian will be skipping lab to go, so you should too. Email Nadji.
Basketball on Tuesday, Broomball on Thursday. Go to both and be active and do things.
Vincent vs. Vincent soccer game: we won!
Nichole is planning a trip to Cafe Bolera (Cuban food) on Saturday. Around $15 and she will drive you in her car. Email Nichole. $2/person subsidy.
IHC is setting up chairs to wait for shuttles in front of the Reg. w00t!
Sign up for Relay4Life! It's fun, so email Elaine at esvatos@uchicago.edu. Yay cancer research!
Prospies are here Feb. 6th! Dorian will email us, and the more the merrier. Host 'em, hang out with 'em, show 'em a good time.
Avi: Cups are leaving and not coming back. If you have one in your room, bring it back, ya DAB.
Spirited discussion of appropriate use of house funding led to suggestions of proposals and discussions prior to major purchases/redecorations.
2 Vincentians are southpaws (just like our president!)
Buy Shamrocks and save the endangered shamrock...that is, raise money for Muscular Dystrophy research. If we buy 150 shamrocks, Laura will make us a bonus brownie study break, so buy early and often.
A raccoon then ran down the sidewalk outside and provided a brief distraction from the meeting's proceedings.

Word of the Week: Kuvia
Vinnie: Jordan for playing soccer until he vomited. That's dedication for ya.
Weenie: Ting for not knowing Montana was a state and Jonah for an unfortunate use of the verb "to milk"
