GM's Valentines Day Message

Greetings again from the Hash Mismanagement crew. Hope your New Year’s resolutions are still on track. What? .. you haven’t started yet? Well, not to worry, 2009 is just started. Just the fact that you’ve made the effort to generate a new years resolution says to me that you are now on the right track and you are facing the right direction. Just because you’re not moving is a minor detail that can easily be remedied. Forget the doomsday sayers who say that it’s the same resolution for the last 7 years!! To them I say the fact that you’ve got the bat in your hands and you’ve stepped up to the plate swinging is more important. And as sure as the night follows day, you will eventually hit the ball. You have to – it’s the law of the universe. You have the GMs word on it.

Maybe the seventh year is when you will hit the ball clear out of the park.

OK enough of that so I can get on with the business at hand. Many of you, maybe all of you might be surprised to know that Valentines Day is one of the GMs favourite days of the year. I know it’s hard to believe that behind this hard-as-rock exterior and behind this solid one pack and buns of steel is a romantic core. But its true and to understand this seeming paradox you’d have to go back just a few years ago when the GM was a young stud (he’s still a stud but just not as young). I’m only relating this story because there is a point to be made from it.

Anyway, back to the story.

One winter day I partied late into the night. The next day I woke up late so I rushed around trying to get ready for work. So right off the bat, I had started my day off on the wrong foot. And as is generally the case, as the day wore on, it got worse. Anyway, I walked out the front door to find three feet of snow on the ground. So I went back into the house, put on my rubber boots and my gloves, and went outside to shovel my driveway so I could drive to work. After 45 minutes I got the driveway cleared. So I jumped into my car and rushed off to get to work as fast as I could go, even though I was already over two hours late. Halfway to work I discovered that I still had my rubber boots on, so now I’ll have to wear rubber boots all day at work. In addition, I had forgotten my employee badge so now I would have to call my boss to come down and sign me in, something he does not like to do. Before I had even gotten to work, I’m already in a bad mood and it was shaping up to be a really bad day.

About a quarter mile from work, I drove by one of my co-worker’s house. I always drive by her house because I had the hots for her. She had an ass that just wouldn’t quit. When I passed her house I looked over and saw her car stuck on the side of her driveway with the hood open, so I stopped to see if she needed help. She had driven off the driveway and gotten stuck, then killed her battery trying to restart the car.

This was just the break I was hoping for. In about ten seconds I had her car back on the driveway and the car running again. She insisted she buy me lunch to repay me and of course I accepted, after a very weak attempt at rejecting.

There’s a lot more to this story but I’m going to stop here because I can now make my point. And here it is. From the time I woke up to then, I had been having a real bad day and I had already made up my mind that the day was not going to get any better. But after she asked me to lunch something amazing happened. My day made a complete turn around and within minutes my entire outlook on life had made a complete U-turn.

I went from low as dirt to flying high on cloud nine. I didn’t even mind my boss chewing me out for forgetting my badge and I almost enjoyed wearing my rubber boots at work. The thing is, my day was still the same day and many other things went wrong, but do you think for one moment that it got me down… no way Hosay. I was flying high all that day and of course all night too!! But let’s not go there.

The moral of the story is this – the proclamation that love makes the world go round is as true as it comes. So what am I saying here. OK, here it is. If you want to have a super day, if you want to be in a good mood all day, you’ve got to inject some love and romance into your life. Do something for the love of your life and happiness will be knocking at your front door before you know it

So for Valentines Day this year, why don’t you make it a little more special. How do you do that you ask? Here’s a yardstick you can use. Seven years from now, (that too long?) OK, how about six months from now, will they remember what happened on Valentines Day? If it can withstand the test of time then I say, you’re on the right track. If there’s one thing that can be called the kiss-of-death in love and romance its BOREDOM. Believe me when I say that because I’m taking that directly out of Eveready’s Book of Love. I’m talking from experience here folks (maybe someday I’ll tell you the story behind that ).

Hundreds and thousands of people through the ages have spent entire fortunes looking for the elixir of life. Well look no further my hash friends the GM can sum it up in one word… LOVE. So make love work for you. Use it to your gain, that’s what its there for. Let it bring you happiness. Let it give you a high no drugs can touch. As Skanky put it so eloquently, let it put butterflies in your bosom. Put the pedal to the medal; no speed limits where you’re going.

In love and romance, time invested is never time wasted.

So good luck and may you drown in the sea of love.


PS: If this prescription doesn’t work for you, don’t call the GM, he’ll be too busy executing his own Valentines Day plan. Lets see, V drinks – check, whipped cream – check, AA batteries – check, handcuffs - check, check, check. OK, The Love Boat is ready to sail!!

Hash Run 1448 - 19/01/09

Morning to you all, next weeks run will be up at Le Manumea Hotel in Vailima. Thanks Poumuli and Tala. Head up the Cross Island road and go past the Curry house, and Zodiac, and turn right. Please, all Vehicles to park on Eugene Road.

A big thanks also to the Management and staff of Le Manumea Hotel- Norman and Luna Paul. Thanks for letting us have a hash run up there..looking forward to it...Fingers crossed the rain buggers off so we can actually complete a run.

Map is below for any newbies..

Hash Trash 1447b

It was another extremely wet and rainy day out at Lewisky and POD’s in Taumesina. The run on paper was set by SOTB and Kiwi, who neglected to say that it was going to be an A to B run with a ride back in Kiwi’s truck. Weather and the conditions caused many to short-cut it back as a result, including a handily twisted ankle for Lewinsky. Only a few die hards made it to the truck at the golf course in Fagalii, but were then so wet and cold that they ran back to base anyway. John and Poumuli were the last to return.

Hash circle was presided over by POD (Deputy Dawg?) and she did a great job controlling the increasingly boisterous gang. One newbie was introduced- Shannon. There were also a number of retreads – Lezzie, FBI, AC/DC, etc.

Several innovative awards were given – Selena for starting up a cocktail function each month that would rival HQ1, Tala for not waiting for a cigar cutter and instead biting off the end, and FBI had to drink from Snake’s shoe. Media award went to Poumuli for a letter to the Editor, and drank alone as Pussy Snatcher was absent for his story in the paper. John had to take Godfather’s down down due to the resemblance of their hairstyles or lack thereof. The girls did several down downs for unmentionable acts. SOTB got a down down for accepting fan mail from a whole boys’ jazz band, and dragged Poumuli into the front and center for being ungrateful. Mr. Whippy received an honorary one on behalf of his Mum’s appearance in the news (palagi with a Samoan heart).

The Hash Monk appeared for a naming ceremony and we now have a newly named addition in Lewinsky’s sister, now known as Pro Boner.

The hares and the hosts completed the ceremony, and yet another great feast was consumed. Big thanks again to POD, Lewinsky, Pro Boner and Happy feet for another great run...
Look forward to seeing you all next week, hopefully it doesn't rain!

Hash Trash- Run 1447 (a)

The run was set by Kiwi and SOTB using Kiwi’s chariot. It was absolutely pissing cats and dogs, so the pack was quickly loosing the trail of paper. Lewinsky and John led the way down a short-cut for the on-home, and blamed Poumuli for the crime for which he got a down down. There was one newbie to the Hash – Tala. Many re-treads as well – POD, Happy Feet, Snakebite, Venom, Fang, Tony Blair, Selena and Ladesha. In the circle the GM apportioned many awards to the wayward girls for their cooking skills (lack thereof – Desirable), staying up all hours (Delicious) and for poor harmonizing (Skankanavian and Desirable). Tony Blair got an award for not protecting the family jewels while climbing over his own fence. John got a Casanova award for leing (sic) 4 girls in one night. A few bruises on Tala’s leg resulted in a wife-beater award to the much-maligned Poumuli. Lewinsky got several well-deserved awards for being quarrelsome and cheap. After Kiwi took the hare’s down down a fine BBQ was consumed. The only downside was the lack of a keg and the beer ran out too early.

Happy New Years AHHH,
Weve made it through to another year. Boy did 08 fly by or what!

This weeks run will be a town crawl from the STA fale/Sassygirl's office. This will be a BYO run as it is the First Monday of the month...and we don't have any takers to host a run yet so bring a little something to add to the hash contribution and lets have another great run. Hash cash will still be $15.
For those who don't know where the Run is being hosted from, See the map below.
