HASH TRASH - Run 641

HASH TRASH - Run 641
Thing Are Heating Up...

It was very hot (but not as hot as it was in London, we hear*). A tough kernel of die-hards gathered in the middle of Tel Aviv's glamorous Kikar HaMedina, met by Dr. Dolittle, all on his lonesome, his co-Hare having been called away for reasons that had us all looking skywards and wondering whether our bomb shelters had been swept out recently.

The threat of missile attack notwithstanding (we did run in Hadera last week, so that doens't bode well for Tel Aviv), the runners set off, only to be called back for a re-start. But this was a good thing, as our numbers were suddenly increased by one-third with the arrival of Nelly, who came several weeks ago, and her Hasher hubby Rusty Ring, who had just come. From Baku, that is.

The runners ran, the walkers walked, and a round of Father Abraham was sung in Kikar Rabin. After the halfway point it got very very hot** and a hold was missed somewhere along the way back to Gucci central. Fortunately, the hounds had the hare on their heels to whistle sharply and guide them into the sharp left turn they'd missed***.

Let it be noted that at Zusya Park, the runners were very good and did slide down the kiddie slide as instructed. Let it also be noted that it was a very good run (two thumbs up!), Dr. D. having stepped into the breach again when duty called but - once again - did NOT volunteer.

"President Bush told People magazine this week that he's working on a solution for global warming. He says it will be ready in less than six months. Yeah, it's called winter." --Jay Leno

"When it gets hot, so hot you can't stand it and the steam is rising from your scalp, do you worry about global warming? Well, George Bush is now also worried about global warming, but he has a plan. He's going to invade the sun." --David Letterman

"The National Academy of Sciences says that due to pollution and global warming, this year the Earth has been the hottest since the time of Jesus which explains why the disciples were always saying, 'Jesus, it's hot.'" --Conan O'Brien

"It is so hot today that President Bush met with European leaders just for the chilly reception." --David Letterman
