       went to opera!
       did a bunch of other things saturday
       boring non-activity sunday
       is now a zebra (pronounced in the pretentious British way)
       eforney's eating a muffin
       Had a weekend!
       Played mafia at halloween party. We should do that more often.

       friendly reminder not to kill anyone at all during Booth discussion
       Had a weekend!

           had lots of chili instead
       did OS stuff-that's kind of boring
       Ladies and gentlemen of the KGB, We will pass through the American patrols, past their sonar nets, and lay off their largest city, and listen to their rock and roll... while we conduct missile drills.

Committee Reports

   The Committee to Groan at Ben Wolf's Jokes misappropriates the Storytelling Committee
       story about land wars in Asia: the unhelmeted army won, because cooler heads will prevail
   The Ad-Hoc Small World Committee, in conjunction with the Misappropriated Creepy Stalker Committee and the Ad-Hoc Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover Committee: was at a music festival, got a hotel room with creepy dudes, random girl comes back to room with one of the guys. Turns out she goes to Pitt and her brother is at CMU. Guess what: her brother is Glisson
   Booth Committee Report - Booth Theme Discussion
       My Little Pony and Doctor Who have been removed as choices. Too divisive to the org. We have 10 options (list below)
       Oren: Star Trek should go back up on the list (dkirby concurs)
       Xander: no it shouldn't: if we don't do it well enough, people will be disappointed. It won't look real. It's too iconic.
       vote: it does not go back up
       What's a giant TV booth? it's the inside of a TV. Would we have a projector inside? maybe
           would probably be a CRT model
       Crime Scene: not based on any particular show, just a general crime plot but also kid-friendly
       What would Wonka be?
           just the candy room. Art-heavy. "WE ARE NOT DOING A WATERFALL" - Scorri, all other Booth chairs
       pcd: how is Wonka on TV? it's a movie? (but it's been on TV)
       memcginn: why are MLP and Doctor Who missing? (topic for later, not this discussion)
       Marlena: crime scene (-): it would be hard to do because not kid-friendly
           price is right (-) because you can only reproduce the set, not much else you can do
       dkirby: agree crime scene (-)
           twilight zone (-) because very character-driven, not memorable visuals (note: itym plot-driven?)
       kharring: idea of twilight zone was to make a twilight-zone story at CMU
       Avi: dexter's lab (?) how well can we reproduce the animation style?
           art people say they can do it
       Xander: we have many more art people than before
       pcd: crime scene would have to be the tropes. But that wouldn't be very interesting for those who haven't watched lots of those shows
       zac: dexter's lab (-) for would be uninteresting those who haven't seen it
       Sully: things people need to think about: every booth needs visuals, game, education 
           eforney: (except not educational content this year, they took it out because everyone just BS'd it)
       Oren: Would Wonka have any edible components?
               answer:wonka would not be edible
               oren: that might disappoint people
           sesame st: how feasible would having people manipulating muppets be? (somewhat...)
       dbesse: Futurama (-), Schoolhouse Rock (-), Twilight Zone (-): these might go over kids' heads
       Marlena: most of these there's only one thing we can do with, except Giant TV and Animal Planet
       Margarita: one theme similar to wonka is Alice in Wonderland. (But it's too late for new ideas)
       tbroman: @Marlena: keeping our options open now does not actually mean we will have more stuff in our booth. It's an 18x18 box.
       dmeng: would schoolhouse rock have the songs? (Quite possibly)
       pcd: does no eatability apply to the prizes? (yes)
           is the 2-people-per-shift thing a rule or our manpower limit? (not clear)
       dkirby: Animal Planet: what's on it?
           each room would be a different biome (eforney)
       tvaughan: if you're afraid of things too show-specific, remember that the whole carnival is show specific. Tons of show-specific booths
       vote: Dexter's Lab 21
           Futurama 7
           Giant TV 38
           Twilight Zone 13
           Crime Scene 4
