Minutes so far of the Extraordinary Elevenses Meeting, 07/08/99

Held in: 11 Manhattan Drive, Cambridge.
Present: Jon, Kirsten, Benedict.
Apologies: Granny, Becky, Gina, Jeremy, Richard (Boulton), Micheal.
Guests: Clare Boothby, Ben Harris.

  1. We open the meeting at the behest of Clare in Manhattan Drive, where we have retreated under rain, since our delaying tactics have seemingly proved successful and the enemy-that-is-called Sheila (spit) have left their fortress, where our meeting was originally scheduled. [Information from Gina who provided an advance scouting party establishes that they had abandoned ship already when she arrived on time: another clear victory for the Society!].

  2. We debate women's underwear and who is likely to have an affair with Jon.

  3. Kirsten recites 'The Mirror' by way of a reading, our survival kit and war rations not having included a set of testaments. She does it very well.

  4. Vote to allow the visitors to vote, since they live in the house: F., 2, Ag., 0, Abs., 0, Asleep, 1; carried.

  5. Vote to censure Granny, Jeremy, Becky and Micheal for not assisting the war effort because it was raining: F., 3 (including Granny by proxy), Ag., 1, Abs., 2; carried.

  6. The minutes of the last meeting are read by Clare.

  7. Corrections: Jon has capitalised goth, thus accidentally implying that there was a conference of Black Sea barbarians under cover of which the rest of us ate cake. Since as a historian Jon has to admit that actual Goths would certainly have nicked the cake and sacked Rome, we vote to amend it to goths: F., 3, Ag., 0, Abs., 1, Dribbling, 1; carried. We also vote to amend the minutes to record that it is Gareth, Marcus's housemate, who is the Sheila (spit) type, not Marcus himself: F., 3, Ag., 0, Abs., 2; carried.

  8. We officially record our victory over the evil Sheila-type foe.

  9. Vote to feel sorry for the British Academy for not ever going to get the answers: F., 3, Ag., 2, Abs., 0; carried.

  10. Further vote that the British Academy are all persons of unknown filiation: F., 4, Ag., 0, Abs., 1; carried.

  11. Jon has to get ice-cream, so we vote, unprecedentedly, to suspend the meeting while he does so. The vote is interrupted by a phonecall from Richard and James Aylett (whom Jon originally minutes as Jones because Clare is randomly Led Zeppelinininininininining, as he puts it; she has a plant called Robert you know. Anyway... ), but eventually falls out: F., 3, Ag., 0, Abs., 1, Asleep, 1; carried.
To be continued...
