Below is the Hash Trash for the Sunday Dakar Hash, which I joined 2 weeks ago...
It's more innocent that it looks !
S2H3 Run #7 – February 20, 2005
(Attached photos provided by our Hash Flash, Just Anna)
Start and Circle: Ebbett’s Field
*last names have been removed for confidentiality purposes*
All Wet One
British Biker Bitch
D. Buonadonna (great name!)
Hares: Just Chino & Just Lisa; Dragged-in-at-the-last-minute-hare: Just Marie (see below, under Baptisms, for why)
This run was S2H3’s very first night-time hash. Beer-soaked kudos to Chino for providing glow-in-the-dark accessories to help track the hashers and make them look really cool. Looking back on trail and seeing long lines of colored circles bobbing in the dark was awesome! Pity he couldn’t keep a handle on the rain....
This special WAIST hash led to an outstanding turnout for our very young hash! Similar beery kudos to Just Lisa for having the idea in the first place. Our numbers swelled with the many Peace Corps Volunteers who joined us, clueless as to what the hash really is, but enthusiastic for beer. The majority of our virgins were WAIST PCVs. However, we had other virgins, a visitor from Mauritania, and new friends from South Africa who promise to come again. Keep spreading the word, folks!
This week’s Beer Bitch: Kongo and (Chino? Who were they?)
D. Buonadonna, Nouakchott H3

Front Running Bastards: Allez les Anglais, Chino, Brandon
Dead F*cking Last: Ivan and Katy W.
Latecummer: Dave (who did not, in fact, actually do the trail)
Language Abuse: Allez-les-Anglais, Virgin Christine & Alexis
Abruptly abandoning the runners’ trail for the walkers’ trail: Jen & Matterhorny
Shortcutting bastard: Matterhorny
Runners getting passed by walkers: Ivan & Sarah
Perceived (but not witnessed) Sex on Trail: Anna & Therman (again!)
Fashion Abuse: Too numerous to mention. Jeez, just buy a f*cking tee-shirt! We have lots...
Peeing on Trail: Neil & Ivan (virginity is no excuse!)
5th Anniversary: Matterhorny, All Wet One, Jen & Lisa
Get-a-life down-down: Allez-les-Anglais, as usual.
Unhashlike behaviour (excessive discretion): Marie and a series of others who had, in fact, been in the circle before, but who were willing to lie, cheat and steal just to get more beer.
Plus: down-downs for the usual tedious inability to hold a down-down cup in the correct hand, purposely holding it the incorrect hand to drink again, endless private parties, snitching, and the continuing bafflement as to what “head gear” entails.
In an extra-special extravaganza of baptisms, we named THREE hashers this evening. Just Lisa was baptized Clubfooted Cheerleader. What kind of spaz falls off a four-inch curb and fractures her leg – the same week she is setting a trail?!? (Rhetorical question, no answer expected.) Just Jen was baptized Today’s Special, for obvious reasons having solely to do with food (right?!). It was clear to the circle that Today’s Special was feeling zero pain as she staggered in to be named. Finally, Just Dave, the RA, was baptized Circle Jerk. (Again, for obvious reasons.) There was heavy competition between that name and “Delusions of Grandeur (DOG)”, so much so that the standard scream method of voting did not work and we had to actually count raised hands. The fact that many hashers attempted to vote twice, vote with both hands, and generally tried to mess up the procedure did not stop an efficient and clean vote from taking place. A warm hash welcome to the newly-named!
If you have spam filters in place on your email, please be sure to add Green Goddess to your address book (under her civilian name, Sharon ) in order to keep receiving these fascinating missives and any other messages relating to the hash, and not have them blocked by your filter. In the fullness of time, we hope to get a newsgroup going so hashers can post news, questions, stupid jokes, etc. (Oh, Armchair, where aaaare you?)
Remember, if you have a common domain such as sentoo, aol, yahoo or hotmail, be sure to check your mail frequently so your mailbox doesn’t fill up. Many people’s hash trashes and other hash mails are being bounced back because the mailboxes are full.
There was no On-after as such because this was a night run. However, many hashers stayed to party on at the “bonfire”.
Run No. 8: March 6, 2005. Hares: Allez-les-Anglais & Just Marie. Watch this space for location and directions.
