Twenty-three hashers old and new accepted hare Just Stupid’s invitation to explore Eastern Paris . Starting from the Place Dulcie September, the trail explored much of the 10th, 11th, 19th, and 20th arrondissements, taking in such sites as the canal St Martin and the basin de La Villette , Les Buttes Chaumont, and the Maison de l’Air de la Ville de Paris. I use the term ‘’trail’’ advisedly : with false trails, and marks washed away or just plain missing, the first kilometer took twelve and a half minutes, and that was for the FRBs! In addition to risking the fine efforts of Paris Proprété by laying the trail the day before, the hare tempted fate by placing the beer for the Beer Stop in a public park (at the Maison de l’Air) on a Friday night!
After a bit more than 10 km and two and a half hours (of which 86 minutes were actually moving), the harried hashers gathered on the windy banks of the Canal St Martin for the down down ( delayed by a group of citizens with their dogs, which were being either ‘’protective’’ or ‘’friendly’’ – any friendlier and PPO would have kicked one of them into the canal).
After various complaints about it being too hot, too many marks, and not enough hills, Just Stupid was condemned for a typical shitty trail. Virgins Just Sophie, Just Helen, and Just Alexandros were then honored for their collective intelligence in choosing to spend a fine Saturday afternoon with PH3. Visitors included Just Kim and Shag SH, although the former has attend at least four recent hashes and the latter threatened to be with us for ‘’2 or 3’’ years.
Accusations. PPO used her prerogative as RA to make the first accusation against Just Stupid for setting a trail that could not be followed. This bounced back a bit latter when Bender accused PPO of being the only hasher who couldn’t find the trail (she got lost at the first check on the canal St Martin , but some how managed to find the beer stop).
Half Crazy made a congratulatory accusation of Just Sophie, the eager Virgin, for so intently searching for the hidden beer at the BS that she discovered a bag of actual garbage. Anarchy accused Just Nadia and Princess Pussy for not following hash rules by shouting ‘’On On !’’, but simply pointing at the marks as they ran by.
Oo La La cited Shaggy Shagless for coming directly to the beer stop without passing ‘’Go’’ (and when one Shag drinks, all shags drink !). Speedy was noted for being the beer meister who didn’t make it to the beer stop (probably went to the nearest bar).
Birthday girl Nintendo Oui was celebrated with a rousing chorus of ‘’Happy Birthday, F___ You’’ Accusations were briefly interupted by a naming ceremony for Just Nadia which by popular demand (her own) was long over due and should be ‘’quick and good’’. After fiercely debating several possibilities, including the afore mentioned ‘’Quick and Good‘’, ‘’Quickies Addict’’, ’’Do it Quick’’ and ‘’Get on With It’’, she will hence forth and forever more be known as ‘’Likes a Quickie’’.
The final accusation was to FRBs Bender, Oo La La, and The Anarchist, who got to drink their down downs from rubber chickens.
Dis-honorable mention (in absentia) to Socks and Roses who, once again, got lost and did not make it to the circle.
In view of the tropical weather conditions, the circle ended with a hyper speed version of the Hash Hymn.
The after hash party was hosted by Just Stupid. Thank you to Just Stupid and Just Cathy for their warm welcome, a great atmosphere and a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner.
