The Hash was hosted by Crash Bandicoot and Cougar at their new house, somewhere between Lotopa and Alafua. A nice day for a run, but your Scribe arrived late so went on his own. But apparently the run was pretty much a tour of the sports complex and fairly lengthy.
POD stepped in as our usual GM, and called the Newbies forward. These were Priya, Ad – medicos, Ephraim from NZ doing GIS with StrapOn. The retreads were Sassygirl BJ (being grandma), Slim Shady (attempting to create life), Heather (drinking in other places).
The GM then asked Rachel if she had explained the Hash Rules to Ephraim, so she got a leaning award shared with StrapOn. Black Swan was appointed Shoe Inspector, and found Ephraim and Crime!
Celebrity Awards went to Slim Shady (twice in paper) and Lewinsky (Clinton dubious photo).
This Day in History Awards went to Black Swan and Heather (1835 – Melbourne is founded), Il Capo (1916 – World War I: Italy declares war on Germany), the Screamers (2006 – Edvard Munch's famous painting The Scream, stolen on August 22, 2004, is recovered in a raid by Norwegian police), Snake and Wahoo (Feast Day of St Gregory), Lewinsky (Feast Day of St Monica of Hippo) and Slim Shady (National Banana Lovers Day).
Starting the GM’s awards, at the start of the run Il Capo had asked Eveready where she could get changed, and he had told her – right here, as he was not wearing glasses. This was deemed a Hero Award, and Godfather was proud of him!
After last week’s run one of the medicos, Mike, and done an Austin Powers by taking all the UK awards on his own, hence another one this week. It was also discovered that Priya had brushed her teeth with Vagisil, and Silver Bullet joined for leaning. The GM then turned on Poumuli, stating that he was a great dog owner, washing the beast at the beach, but a shit father for leaving his daughter Yahoo in the waves. His excuse that she was learning to swim was not accepted.
Since this was another pink run, Nom Nom and Ephraim were invited to a down down for their very special efforts, through their, erm, shirts. The GM then gave a special Cant Follow Instructions Award to Il Capo and the medicos – Jack and Kate took this one.
Opening up for nominations, Sassy nominated two Hash Meres for the Wussy Award for taking the shortest route possible – Black Swan and Sunny Side Up. Eveready was then nominated for making his 6-yr old granddaughter set the trail.
Poumuli made a nomination for the Dedication to Hash Award. He had been told that Swinger was
crook and had stayed home, and the Screamer (Fiji version) was similarly crook, but “she had made herself come”. And that was why and how she was at Hash!
Lewinsky nominated Sassy for the Grandma Award, which was a large one. This prompted Poumuli to nominate Lewinsky for the Grandma Abuse Award. Eveready then introduced his visitors Greg and Colin. Something then happened with Crash’s shoes.
Slim Shady had been excited about going to eat at Nafanua, but the place is closed on Tuesdays. Poumuli appealed to Witch Doctor, but this meant she had to join him for the Hero Award. Il Capo had been visited by Alex (the Italian), and he had been a little tipsy, so upon leaving had tried to drive away in her similar looking car. Il Capo joined in the award for Aiding and Abetting.
StrapOn noted that there was such a thing as Go Topless Day, and was sure that Godfather would be in favour of this event, as an ardent supporter of women’s rights to go topless. There was some discussion about whether Slim Shady would make his day, but in the end it was just a down down for the two of them.
The Hosts and Hare – Crash Bandicoot, Cougar and Eveready were saluted, before we brought out Divine’s cake. She was given an extra long birthday song at her request. And then a great feast was had.
