- Meeting opened.
- This is the fully official meeting no matter what Owen says: Passed
- Votes to censure Martin for being mean to Alison: Passed
- Votes to censure Owen for not being here: Failed
- Votes to demonstrate dust resuspension using Martin: Failed
- The meeting arrives at 1, 3 Selwyn Gardens.
- It is followed shortly afterwards by a huge number of Old Pembrokians.
- Jenny bounces on the bed.
- Some (presumably) very old jokes. I donít understand them. They seem to amuse the Old Pembrokian contingent.
- We have two virgin PoohSoc-ers.
- Everybody down! (Jenny)
- Minutes of the meeting on the 15/3/03 are read.
- Votes to censure the meeting take 1 for not having a reading.
- It is pointed out that as another meeting was running in parallel to it (however briefly), Take 1 was unconstitutional and didnít need a reading.
- Owen, I do apologise, Iíve just made a wet patch on your bed. (Jenny)
- High-pitched anti-microsoft noises by Ben. More indecipherable jokes.
- In the fluids department you have to drive tanks. Passed
- The "Two Fish" and "Two Parrots" jokes resurface.
- Michaelís trousers. (I was told to minute them, I donít know why.)
- First occurrence of the Mr. Kiplingís Tarts joke.
- Granny hijacks the minutes. Ben makes ye olde Mr. Kipling/ tarts/ cream joke.
- In an outbreak of politics, should the buns be "Freedom Fancies"? As ever, no conclsion is reached.
- The meeting begins to fragment into cliques, but is brought back on course when half a Bakewell Tart circumnavigates the room.
- Granny has the minutes but isnít actually minuting anything. Obviously this statement is false.
- a) Ben prances around the room on a broomstick. Like his women. b) He then discusses techniques for games with biscuits. (No doubt this minute has been done before, but the old ones are the best.)
- Arizona State University has lost its Pythons and Hyphens (and a tiny nosserous too)
- As Iím minuting I should probably have taken an interest in whatever that vote was. Robert and Friend leave. "Goodbye Rob" is shouted.
- Vote to postpone the (third set of) minutes until Benís not here: Passed
- The Reading: "In which Pooh goes visiting and gets into a tight place."
- Martin has a PURPLE shirt. How things have changed since our day.
- Martin and <insert name here> (Alison) leave.
- ?? No. But surely? Perhaps not? Maybe? Martin? (I transcribe verbatim from Grannyís notes)
- Michael is talking about tentacles. Some things donít change.
- Jenny accuses Joy of making a disgustingly sexy comment.
- Mr. Kipling vote:
Red Nose Cakes: 1
French Fancies: 1
Angel Slices: 0
Hung, try again
Red Nose Cakes: 1
French Fancies: 2
Angel Slices: 0
French Fancies win. This means nothing except that it goes on the website.
- In the interests of taste and decency, a pause in the minutes.
- Ben had a lot to drink last night. He wasnít the only one...
- "You utter bitch I hate you and I want to tear your face off" I think Iíve upset Mike. He changes his mind "I apologise for my bitchiness".
- Jenny wearing just a gown, a drag queen in a pink wig, and a fellow, all passing on the staircase. "It happened in your room, on your bed"
- He would have gored me to pieces. (Michael)
- Owen has radioactive piles and a huge box.
- Votes to close: Passed
