Line Break - On-On Feet

Ah ent no writah ah tell ’em, but thay harassing meh fer weeks now, even callin’ meh "Ghostwriter". They waaah meh to write ah trash an’ the only ting I feel like writin’ is trash, about all a yuh!!

Christmas Party time, all of us ol’ boys and girls jus happy that afternoon…Christmas cheer in the air an’ ting! The ideah that we would get a nice ‘runner’s glow’ to go with as much booze that we could drink, and even a little more time and something an’ someone to wine on, (around Mahatma’s pool with a view, pappa- , and man, me and my Hashing buddies could barely contain weeselves. We don’t get that often! Once ah year ent…an’ we eh playin’! We guh wine on everything tonite!

So, thay axs us to stumble in deh Stumblin’ Bar on Aripiata Avenue aftah another nite ah limin’ with deee Hash Crew…two nites in a row. Some of the slouches stayed on limin’ (instead of running), up an down them little streets ah Woodbrook, St. Clair and Port of Spain (as planned by Diane and Martin). In fact, many ah us real jealous ah them fuh havin’ real nerve. They show up for dee hash and instead, decide tuh stay at dee bar to imbibe and watch football! What ah dreamy afternoon…fuhr them! As far as dee rest of us concerned, thay just gettin’ the annual Christmas Party started ah little early eh…and why not??? Thay smart! The rest ah us fools wuh just weavin’ our way up and down the same streets over and over, up to dee Savannah and back away, and up again, and back away, with a lot a confusion about whether or not "we On On" or in fact, it just "ah bit ah ol’ flour from last Monday run!"

I waz tireeeeed already, before we start!!! I sick, and my belly hurtin’ me too bad! I had to drag my arse up off meh stool in Stumbilin’ and stumble out; an’ ah pretend to do it with enthusiasm, because, yuh know, I was going to get real excited this evening. Ah, a little break (hehehehe), it pourin’! Maybe too much to go fuh a run! Yuh would think, but nah man! That Sheldon only countin’ down and sayin’, "rain or shine, we going in six minutes". During all dee twists and turns up this and thah street, all I looking for is a short cut that would get meh back tuh Stumblin’, but wouldn’t get me wearing that cold, nasty Pooftah t-shirt two times in ah row!

Boy, aftah one hour an’ a half of runnin’ (well, ah really walkin’ fass) in the hot sun, in blistering hot Port of Spain, I dyin’ an’ I int the only one, eh! Ah whole bunch ah them peepin’ down dee streets, an’ Mr. Mahatma teachin’ all the little wusses like me (an’ Toni too), where they go end up..little short cuts nah! Eh notting! Aftah all, is he lass run as Mathatma! I following he; he good at that! He ent using any more energy than he hah teh!!!

An’ Betty, she really getting on meh nerves dee whole time looking like a racin’ horse who jess get out ah the stables, fresh an’ ready to go fuh another 2 hours…prancin’ up and down with ah big smile on she face! Good fuh she!!! Not me, I dreamin’ ah all them beers I gonna drink when ah get back stumblin’ to Stumblin’!!! But I ben the cornah and I see that damn truck again with bloody Dune smilin’… all I wanna do is punch he in his bloody mouth to knock that grin off he face, but luckily this time, he had only beers in dee back dis time. Yeh man!!!

I bend the corner again…the home stretch, Taz behind me plottin’ how she go look in huh new Iron Lady get up for the next year an’ me dreading more torturin’. Then, low an’ behold, dee truck drive by again and who I spot hiding like a real Pooftah in dee back ah dee truck…Shauwna!!! Hehehehehehe!!! Is she, she gonna wear that nasty t-shirt an’ I think Dune and he partnah should wear it too.

Ah gone! I done! It was a nice run afterallJ….I lyin’!

Line Break - On-On Feet

The Handover

It was two weekends before Christmas and all was in place

Everyone waited with baited breath for Taz to take Arthur’s place

So to Arthur’s place we all made our way to witness the evening’s affair

Hash Christmas party, of course everyone wanted to be there

Alas for some it was not to be as room was limited for the affair

So dinner was catered by Richard to some of the committee’s dismay

But he passed the test with flying colours so the committee had no more to say

Then came time for Santa who arrived with much fanfare

He made his way to his pride of place but we never saw his reindeer

So from his list he called out names to come sit with him

And so it was he called out names amid the party din

Gerrard he called and gave to him an id for Gerry Soogrim

Sheldon got a dog collar for his exploits in Tobago of female tracking

Next was Curtis who for his broken heart got a rag to wipe his tears

Then came Shawna who got a man to satisfy her needs with care

Randall was next and to make up for height he was presented with a ladder

Then surprise surprise up came a lovely lady who was his outside daughter

Eric was absent but Santa declared he got him a tin of Slim Fast

Ashe was next his present was not found so the helpers told him to pass

Betty came forward received her present and everyone asked what is that

She unwrapped the present to reveal for her chest she got Fix a Flat

Reed came forward and was not pleased it was not rum, it was beer

Santa then told him if you want to be a hasher you have to drink beer

Marlay came forward with much apprehension wondering what could it be

And so he unwrapped his gift from Santa ,a list Catering staff Employment Agencies

Next came Corkie Lorin and Hanif all three recovering from injury

To them was presented a million dollar CLICO policy

And so it was there were no more presents so Santa’s exit would be a cinch

So right there before our very eyes Santa turned into the Grinch

Soon after as we stood and gazed the Grinch waved his magic wand

And so it was that Arthur appeared with the Parrot in Hand

Next came the Iron Lady who made a grand entrance

Preceded by winged ladies who put on a mini dance

Then on she came dressed in red and all her finery

Men tried to touch but were kept back by her ugly mean security

Arthur looked on very much like General Custer in his last stand

But before he could think or even blink Taz had the parrot in her hand

So parrot in left hand and mike in the other she made her maiden speech

Never forgetting to remind us that she is the Iron Lady who looks phenomenal on the beach

She then announced her cabinet which had new ministries among them

Someone said UNC much of the old guard like she P oN theM

She presented Mahashma with his plaque and a deya and we did not know what it meant

But in her presentation to him she explained that the deya was for enlightenment

And so the party started hashers all having a good time, a really good place to be

And then very much to our surprise on came Myron B

His hits he performed for us song after song after song

Hashers needed very little encouragement as they sang along

And so it was the night was winding down to an end

Some hashers made their way home and others got cozy with a friend

Another Hash Christmas party is now a memory

So we turn our thoughts to 2012 wondering

what kind of year will it be

797 Dec 24, 2011 Three Wise Men & Taz Lady Chancellor Hill Pinkee

Line Break - On-On Feet

Twas the afternoon before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse! You see instead, on Chancellor Hill that said afternoon, cars with Hash feet would be spotted winding their way up to the day’s run site.

Having not been to our host’s home before, I was pleasantly enthralled by the wonderful vista of the city down below and the festive Parang music blaring from the speaker boxes of the now regular fixture, Deejay Nigel.

Under white tents, serving trays lined with hops, ham, pasta salad, turkey etc were a tempting sight for later and rumors were confirmed that the spread was "free" as Yuh Mammy walked past musing aloud "like de Hash have money boy". Hashers slowly but surely filtered in, most decked in festive red and even a few wannabe Dashers and Prancers could be seen milling around with their reindeer bandeaus. Seasons greetings, hugs and kisses were being dished out in abundance and one could easily have been forgiven for mistaking the occasion as a Hash social event and not a run until the Iron Lady called for the Hash Hush and the three hares Wise men (in full costume mind you. These men really taking cross-dressing to new heights!) came forward to brief us on what was to be expected on the run.

Having been recently spared the dubious award of Worst MMM Run 2011, you would think that the Wise Man from the North Ash would have given up setting runs for a while but no…instead he proceeded to rant about there being no hills (yeah right), no mud and to be careful when going through the river and use the life jackets provided??? Go figure!

On On was called and we set off into a nice brisk walk up the hill. No one seemed in any particular rush to do any running and I’m not sure if this was due to the ill effects of the Holiday Season or in anticipation of a Ball Buster run which two of these particular hares are known for setting. "Long and Hard" seems to be their modus operandi as if they are trying to work out some sort of personal shortcoming on the Hash..Quality not quantity boys!

Anyway….eventually the front pack started running up the hill to a nicely placed "X" – Duh, and after much mulling around and to-ing and fro-ing the correct trail was found off an old off beaten path by Dookie no less, leading the pack down to the back of the Zoo and then eventually veering us off to the back entrance of the Gardens. Having reached another standstill and again in no particular fancy to "dash off", Devaughn was sent up to check a trail up a very steep hill. Poor fellah, he really took the chain-up well from Martin and I as we encouraged him with "Yuh form lookin’ good boy" and "this is yuh last chance to be at the front of de Hash" needless to say he found an "X"..Oh well.

The correct trail was found leading the pack into Cascade, up to Terra Cita with the "On In" at the crest of the hill leading back to the run site down Chancellor.

Great after-party, entertainment was provided by Los Hombres Sexuales an all-male Parang band out of Diego Martin of good looking young men, which for those of you not familiar with the language means "Impotent Men" – what…you think I’m making this up? Check it out! Ladies don’t get your hopes up J

Hash Hush was called and during the down downs we had our first Hash demonstration. Apparently some of the Old farts had taken issue with the dismissal of Yuh Mammy as Hash Booze and decided to protest at the Iron Lady’s first official Down Down.

Two-sided placards reading "No Boos no Booze" were paraded around and a well meant but out of tune version of "We shall Overcome" was sang throughout the crowd while Nevie wandered throughout the throng in a shredded T-shirt like a displaced vagrant. But the Iron Lady would have none of this! She continued with the procession of the Down Downs blatantly ignoring the protestors and instructed Deejay Nigel to play "I’ve Got the Power" just in case they didn’t get the hint. At the end of it all the protestors said they were all just having "a bit of fun". Guess everybody’s idea of fun is different right?

Poofter award went to Corkie for some nonsense but it really should have gone to barman Andre who arrived late to the Hash because he didn’t have proper directions??? Priceless!

Good time was had by all. Happy New Year and see you in 2012! ON ON!!!
