The Hash was hosted at Palusami Restaurant by Elle Mc Jr. It was a modest turnout as many are off island for holidays, and others were too lazy. Poumuli was asked to be live hare and off we went down the Vaiala road stopping for a Hash View at the new sea wall, already loosing rocks to the waves. The walkers were left behind, and in the end it was only Godfather and the Hare running, thus we went back home, as the heat was too intense on the back roads. More hashers started turning up, and we soon had a good number present. Cupless agreed to be GM and called the circle to order.
There were no newbies, and the retreads were Poumuli and Lowrider – one had been in Paris the other babyraising. There was no need for a Shoe Inspector, yet Snake insisted that Poumuli’s shoes were too new – actually they were.
This Day in History Awards were a difficult affair as hardly any were present. Snake for Hot Nuts (1892 – Premiere performance of The Nutcracker by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in Saint Petersburg, Russia), Transporter for Lewinsky (1998 – President Bill Clinton is impeached by the United States House of Representatives, becoming the second President of the United States to be impeached), Cupless for Crime (2004 – A gang of thieves steal £26.5 million worth of currency from the Donegall Square West headquarters of Northern Bank in Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom, one of the largest bank robberies in British history), Transporter for Gayboy (2010 – The repeal of the Don't ask, don't tell policy, the 17-year-old policy banning homosexuals serving openly in the United States military, is signed into law by President Barack Obama) and Dawn Raid (International Migrants Day).
Celebrity Awards went to Dawn Raid (Norway being best country to live in story), Wahoo (Janet’s ad), Witch Doctor (I forget), and Godfather for Swinger (Swingmother was in the paper).
Opening up for nominations, Sunny Side Up nominated Godfather for his eagerness to get to the Hash, to the point of running a light. When Godfather tried to explain that this was Hashmanlike Behaviour, Snake recounted how they had been broken down by the side of the road and saw Godfather approaching in his truck, only to have him speed past. In the end Sunny Side Up, Godfather (Snakebite was whipping boy) and Transporter took this award. Transporter had his sunglasses on, but handed it off to Venom.
Poumuli was impressed by the speed of the two boys and suggested a race with their dad, thus Snake, Snakebite and Venom lined up. Need less to say the boys triumphed.
Transporter nominated the only TV1 employee to refuse participating in the Christmas Thank You Show. Anchor defended that she wanted some more money to participate. Poumuli nominated Witch Doctor for getting her wheels back.
Transporter nominated Rory for a celebrity award as he had just arrived, for the Digicel lawsuit against Bluesky, but he joined as a closest living relative to Bluesky employees past and present. Godfather nominated Elle Mc Jr for the most beautiful proposal ever, which Anchor took as closest living relative.
Anchor then nominated Transporter for the Asshole of the Month Award for not taking better care of Lowrider, details were not forthcoming, with some confusion as to the relative assholiness compared to Cockblocker.
The Hare and Hosts were saluted, with Poumuli and the Snake boys doing the honors. Elle Mc Jr then put on some fabulous food for us.
