Kay and Jourdan here. We’ve decided, due to the success of yesterday’s liveblogs, to experiment with an InnermostParts senate liveblog. As a disclaimer, we are not affiliated with any senators or union members. Feel free to comment. Jourdan will be snarky. Kay might be.

Senate Money Resolution is introduced to get money for tuning up 2 new bikes for the DeisBikes program. Someone donated them, but they need work. Maybe the newly chartered Motorcycle Resource Club could take care of this?
issue is tabled.
Can you tell us who is in attendance?
This is very cute, you two! Haha.
We could be environmentally friendly and all learn to cross country ski, that way we don’t need snow plows. They plow my car in and then I pathetically try for 30 mins to free my little blue car from the elements.
snow plows vs. compost bins….the snow plow won (awww)
Compost bins for Charles River and the Mods… smelly, but environmentally concious… the previous ones met an untimely end at the hand of snow plows
there is no opposition. you got your wheels kids!
Deis Bikes! I know a lot of people who seem excited about this project. There is a motion to vote.
Now on to “unfinished business” that sounds a tad ominous.
Maybe they should have a regular driver’s resource center. I know a lot of kids from “the city”, and the only thing most of them know how to drive is a mario kart.
Motorcycle Resource Club gets
charteredrecognized… the roads of Waltham are now slightly safer.
oh i think this is the Motorcycle Resource Center that was MIA at the last senate meeting. Personally, I don’t like motorcycles, they’re loud, and I’m always worried I’m going to kill the driver when I switch lanes. Good think they honk at me before I do.
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Licenses.
There is a french fry maneuver taking place
decorum please! french fries briefly distract the senate.
Global Business Brigades is now chartered. and the next batter up is….
No objections, that’s a nice change from yesterday evening.
So from my understanding, these guys are kind of like Kiva.org
apparently they microfinance for 3rd world countries (i think the politically correct term is “undeveloped world”) it’s a national organization, this would be one branch that would do local on-campus fundraising to get money to take an annual trip. I don’t know if they’re heard, but college kids are poor 🙁
Global Business Brigades has the floor… I feel like these guys should have a theme song.
Global Business Brigades! (idk what this is yet, but you learn s.thing new every day)
Andy says that the ongoing lack of reception in usdan is not his fault. we need a cable. we dont have said cable. maybe we will have it soon so that we can stop missing calls while eating?
We’re getting doorhangers with a handless Ollie… is this a threat from the Union?
Andy’s working on the “Stall Street Journal” so yall can practice your reading skills while on the pot.
Jason wants to know what needs to change… brainstorm, people!
Justice Rachel is now present. I wonder what the verdict from yesterday is? Curious, curious.
Lev mentions possibly hosting a town hall meeting to provide information on the Ayers event since we are all deeply uninformed.
How do yall feel about Bill Ayers? Personally, I think he was one handsome fella in the 60s.
Uh Oh… Jason drops the “A” word… dun dun DUNNNNNNN *whisper*Bill Ayers*/whisper*
Melman serranaded me once….sorry got distracted.
Jason likes the idea too… sort of.
Jason asks that people wear clothes to the State of the Union. (No naked people painted green) There will be musical performances before the speech!
Alex wants to know if he can perform a song for Jason at the State of the Union… I think this would provide great publicity for the event… Do it, Alex!
Advisers may be able to speak on behalf of students in scenarios where the students speaking for themselves would be uncomfortable or dangerous (rape, assault, etc.) …this is actually a great thing, and might allow certain crimes to be taken care of more thoroughly. Very happy with the union on this one.
Tentative agreement on the Student Bill of Rights. Awesome. We will soon have privileges… a great step forward 🙂
Jason encourages us to speak up when we don’t like stuff… good to know.
The Business Major and Optional Justice Brandeis Semesters were passed at the last senate meeting. Jason gives props to the Senate resolution. Yay senate!
Rappaporte Treasure Hall (hmmm do we think there will be leprechaun gold hidden beneath the tables)
go listen to Jason’s State of the Union and then get drunk. It’s St. Patrick’s day.
State of the Union is March 17th at 6:30 pm. That is Jason’s State of the Union. Wear green or you might get pinched!
Aramark makes the vegan noodles? Woah, i did not know that.
1776: The Musical…Brandeis Edition
Jason gives verbal props to Jenna while the Senate knocks. The knocking always reminds me of old men sitting with the old fashioned whigs in some ancient Philadelphia court-room. Sorry my imagination gets the best of me s.times.
Nathan demands SmartBalance, seeing as it is a Brandeisian invention. He is tired of being inconvenienced by having to go to Hannaford to obtain SmartBalance.
Jason made a suggestion to put some tables outside, so we can eat al la fresco (sorry i speak french, idk if this is french) but it sounds good to me! then I won’t have to get my jeans muddy and wet from sitting on the lawn out front of usdan.
Lev wants kombucha in the c-store… he is very adamant about it.
Hey yall, we’re being updated about dining services…in case you hadn’t noticed we now have a permanent “waffle bar”. The vegan noodles are back in the c-store and can be used on a meal.
all-day waffles and kosher-to-go by request… woot?
