House Minutes 5/31

  • Last house meeting of the year! Cue sad-sounding awwww. Emotions to be postponed for the end of the meeting.
  • Laura sez: check your email for how to leave BJ after finals. Basically, they don't care where you sleep, but you can't sleep here. Leave by 3pm Saturday or incur $25/hr fees. Scrape your crap off the walls, throw away your trash, and repaint your walls if need be.
  • Study Break on Tuesday and Movie Nite Thursday, as per uze. House BBQ Sunday at "probably like four in the afternoon, maybe, or five?" according to Laura. Gardening and good times to be had by all.
  • Study Breaks galore during finals week, either Chez Schwabley or from Josh. Delish.
  • 24 Quiet Hours start Thursday, so shut up and get studying.
  • Anees (in his last Vincent RH meeting evar): I have finally given up on Clark St. Better luck next year?
  • Anees is also having dinner with Nick The New RH and you can pass along any salient information you may have for him.
  • Vote for DVD player with pushable buttons: A resounding yes! 69 or so dollars will be withdrawn from house savings to buy it.
  • Dr. Osadjin will be swinging by for lunch at 12ish. Stop by and talk nutrition, exercise, or even non-bio topics.
  • Felipe sez: report is forthcoming from the SCC survey.
  • Vinnie awards will be Tuesday during study break. Eli and Tyler are cooking up some crazy scheme.

  • Felipe successfully herded us in for another meeting.
  • Lawruh: DUNES TRIP this weekend! Super fun. If you want anything special, let her know.

House Meeting Minutes 5/5

  • Tonight's meeting is an "intimate mini-meeting," to quote Lexie.
  • Laura: sign up for the Dunes trip! Spots are limited, so sign up early and often.
  • Movie Nite is Fight Club, sans RHs due to baseball tickets. It will still kick ass, however.
  • SCAV is WEDNESDAY AT MIDNIGHT. Show up in the Judson Lounge at 11pm Wednesday. Everyone should participate or you'll regret it for the rest of your life.
  • If you are burning to see some soccer (har har har GET IT), the Fire trip is Saturday at 6:30.
  • Avi's going to bleed for charity tomorrow at 12:30. You, too, should be so generous with your precious erythrocytes.

  • Lexie is hosting a lovely picnic next Thursday at 3:30ish at the Point. Promises to be splendid and lovely.
  • Anees hopes you all read his email to the listhost.
  • In the interest of keeping house meetings short(er) and sweet(er), we encourage you to think carefully about what you present and whether it wouldn't be better suited to emailing the listhost.
