Seems that after nearly an entire year in the City of Light, the palace at Versailles was still on the bucket list for Hare Princess Pussy, who saved her visit until her last week in town, when she was able to grace the locale with her Presence. Assisted by able deputy Hares Bender and WTFAMT, Princess Pussy hosted Run 812 in the Royal Forest. Disdaining pedestrian flour, The Princess laid the run in imperial style, marking the trail in a vanilla flavored powder, so that if Hashers were uncertain about the where to go, a quick taste was sure to set them straight.
The invitation clearly stipulated tiaras. Nice Bit of Skirt, Just Stupid, Bender, Newcomer Sparkle, Sleeping Sex, and Visitor Yeti felt free to disregard Her Royal Highness’ instructions and showed up with no princess gear whatsoever. 3X A Lady seemed to think that she could get by by constructing a little arts and crafts project on the train out to Versailles with a few paper clips and a bit of tin foil that might gain her access to the Princess’ court. When she failed to pull that off, she tried to get by on the Medoc Marathon t-shirt. Just Stupid, Sleeping Sex and Visitor Coctoberfest went so far as to dress completely in civilian clothes with nary a bit of Hash gear between the three of them.
One notable wardrobe failure was probably merely a desperate bid for attention. Just Romain was accused of false advertising and reminded of the firm policy of no sex on the Hash. Those trousers will never be the same.
The no sex on the hash policy did not stop Revered GM The Anarchist from disappearing into the forest in a van with Bender in tow, apparently looking for a nice shady spot and leaving behind poor Speedy dragging his horn.
It was actually a lovely day for a Royal Farewell; sunny skies and cool temperatures encouraged WTFAMT in her bid for the Front Running A$$h0le crown, or it could just have been her quest for the Beer Stop, or perhaps the search for a convenient ‘pause technique’ inspired her speed. In Sprinkler’s absence, Visitor Dr. Gonad answered the call, as did Just Stupid, who alleged that he was performing a public service by assisting in the little known Fight Against Aphids.
Despite the tastily laid trail, the runners had a number of difficulties finding the Beer Stop, judging by how long it took them to show up. Nice Bit of Skirt quickly figured out that the hares had hidden key parts of the trail. He rapidly overcame this one clever little trick, overturning sunbathers willy-nilly to uncover the blobs of cleverly hidden pastry flour. Coctoberfest, Dr. Gonad, Sparkle, 3X A Lady, and Visitor Just Gabes tried shortcutting, which did not help them in the least. They were fortunate that the extremely thirsty walkers did not set upon the mere 20 bottles hidden at the beer stop and polish it all off while waiting.
Following the adorable Princess Pussy’s departure, Sleeping Sex has assumed the position of Hare Razor. Other volunteers for vacant or soon to be vacant Hash Mis-Management positions welcomed! Check the Mis-Management page and step forward!
