HASH TRASH - RUN 661

HASH TRASH - RUN 661

Lazing on a Sunny Afternoon (in the Wintertime...)

Place: Nof Yam Park
Hare: Boston Creamed

The mid-winter sun shone brightly* as the Hashers gathered for a run that was, by request, scheduled an hour early and very VERY short, due to the British Embassy Christmas Ball. At the outset, while still standing 'round the circle, Rocket set the tone for Run 661 by announcing that he had seen the "On In" marking near his house and from that point on, things just... sort of... moved... slowly...

On-on! Or rather, On... on... Assistant RA Dead Boring and GM Dr. Do-little elected to abandon their sacred duties and strolled at a leisurely pace, while Deliverance, Neverf**ker, Rocket, and the newly named Conjugal Visit (formerly Liz) sweated it out.

The group met up with walkers Diablo and Swamp Monster at the half-way point. The Hare, Boston Creamed, consulted with the lone Brit (Dead Boring**) as to whether he might lead the group in singing "Rule Britannia" but he claimed to know only the words to the first line*** and suggested instead that we sing "Jingle BALLS" in honor of the upcoming evening event. So we did. And Dead Boring has promised to figure out some hand gestures for the next time we sing this jewel of a song.

The second half included a tour of the site on which Deliverance's new house is being built. It is going to be very nice, with a fireplace, blue tile bathrooms, and a pantry as big as an elevator shaft. In fact, it is an elevator shaft. There will also be a pool and there will be a big Hash party there in 2010 or 2011. Save the date.

We then passed the On-In marking about which Rocket had so kindly informed us earlier. In the interests of speed and efficiency, beer keys were handed to Neverf**ker who then proceeded, along with everyone else, to amble on back to the circle. Never was a run more lackadaisical, laid-back, lethargic, lugubrious, lollygagging and many other words beginning with "L".

The run was deemed "shitty" because people in Nof Yam just let their dogs run free. Well, at least that's what they told yours truly. And I believe them.

*A winter drought arouses mixed emotions in the tender Hasher breast (no, not that one). On one hand, the sunny, slightly chill weather is perfect for running. On the other hand, what will thirsty Hares drink this summer? Yes, I know the answer is clearly beer, but what if we aren't able to shower?
**What has happened to the Empire? You guys are slipping!
*** So do I, for that matter.

POST SCRIPT
The Holyland Hash House Harriers made quite an elegant appearance at the British Embassy Christmas Ball, from Dead Boring's satin tux and Bravefart's spangly shoes to Stroker's arm candy (whose name is Lior). We did not do so well at the raffle -- aside from Lager Lout, the two Hash tables were a Bermuda Triangle in a sea prizes. On the plus side, the group photo (which will be scanned and duly posted online) proves we sure do clean up nice.

IN CLOSING... POST-FEMINIST YUKS FROM OUR MAN IN BAGHDAD
Asked for a few words from the Iraqi front, Fer Fox Sake initially retorted that he had lost his sense of humor due to almost being blown to bits three times a day. Well, who can blame him? However, he then proceeded to redeem himself, sort of, with these images entitled: Women as Explained by Engineers.
