813 Jul 21, 2012 Doon, Peter and Doon’s son Santa Cruz Husband of Hairy Thing

Line Break - On-On Feet

So Run 813!  In the days leading up to the run I watched the skies with trepid concern from the amount of rainfall!  Yes I know it is the rainy season but still fairly new to this outdoor pursuit, I do so love a dry run.  The run is at Santa Cruz in Saddle Grove and the lovely Aerorina was very generous with the use of her house and grounds!  Mountain Goats set the run and Doon, his son and Peter gave us the lowdown on the hash of the day.  Ashe looked un-coordinated in his probably expensive coloured attire, whilst Betty was coordinated in her attire from trainers upwards.  In orange and blue she did stand out a bit, but we are talking about Betty right!!  When we started there was all sorts of ‘ Oh Bacchanal’ as we tried to find the first paper trail.  To be fair it had been simply set, just that we had many turn backs before we found it with the front runners dashing off here and then there.  Me, I just walked in the general crowd and waited for the racing snakes to get it ‘ON ON’. We knew that the trail being set by the Mountain Goats was going to involve a ‘mountain’ at some point especially from where we set off and they did not disappoint, in fact it was virtually straight away.  Nice scenery though (I am talking about the countryside and not the female sort, though there was plenty of that too!)  The stream that we followed was not too steep initially but there were some slippery rocks.  It became even steeper and more slippery as we ascended and, even I ended up on my arse.  I am sure that many were thankful for the numerous vines and saplings that helped us up, and down this mountain.  I did hear a nice young lady next to me suggest that she could swing down on the vines!! There was a tree with he name on it if she had tried.  The river was refreshing and unlike some runs not deep.  Not complaining just an observation!  Then came the road run.

I was somewhere in the middle of the hash running alongside my good lady wife and we managed to stay about there for the whole run.  The one observation by me, and complaints by others especially at the ‘Down Down’ was that there was ‘too much road’  The Iron Lady tried with the sound system at the Down Down but ended up using her own.  ‘New Shoes’ were Kevin, Roxy and one other whose name escapes me.  Ashe was berated for his previous lost key on Run 812 and declared a nominated ‘Poofter’ for the remaining year!  The most entertaining event however was Colin’s skit that neither the photos you may see, nor I can do justice!  Suffice to say it was rib tickling!  The lime was good with some nice fish and chicken provisions.  Richard provided the music on the road at the end courtesy of his Pimp Mobile as we went deeper into Santa Cruz to find a local bar and lime’d some more!  Bring on 814, ON ON!!!

805 April 14, 2012 Doon, Aliza, Lisa, Kern, Jasmina, Christenthia, Nita, Daniel, Kiley and Paul Yara, Blanchisseuse Bald and Beautiful

Line Break - On-On Feet

As if the Gods were conspiring to keep the faithful supporters and a few cabinet members away from the forthnighly meeting with our beloved Ironing Lady, there was an impressive halo around the sun which panicked many to believe that this was surely a sign that the world was about to end. In fact most of us believe that a Mountain Goats run set by Doon and company usually means the end of the world for us hashers since he is known to set some ballbusters on the North Coast, and this was to be no exception. For those of you interested in knowing, a halo is caused by the sun’s rays refracting off ice crystals in the upper atmosphere resulting in a circular rainbow effect around the sun. Yes, we do have ice crystals in hot Trinidad at 22,000 feet and No, it wasn’t because a comet hit the sun releasing gases into space or a precursor for the Mayan end time prediction; or so we hope!

So there we were gathered in the constituency of Blanchisseusse on the banks of the beautiful Yarra River which we have trekked by several times before, to listen to the opening remarks from the Iron Lady who successfully defeated a No Confidence motion several weeks ago. So buoyed by this victory and the prospects of another overseas trip coming up soon, we strutted off like loyal lemmings behind the Iron Lady following Doon, Lisa and a half dozen other virgin hares.

Now that the Minister of Works finally got back the PURE project, it appeared that the first 20 minutes of the proceedings were designed to review the state of the roadway, bridges and drains in the constituency because there was no other reason for us spending so much bloody time on the road! Eventually after about a dozen long mother arse false trails, we ventured into the forest and soon enough after another half dozen long false trails, we started climbing one long bloody hill that seemed to h ave no summit. We just kept climbing and climbing for about half an hour then finally we reached the top. These fricking Mountain Goats lived up to their name. So then it was downhill, literally from here to a smaller river that led to the bigger Yarra River where the hares redeemed themselves somewhat by providing refreshments to the weary and thirsty hashers. Then to the ON-IN which ended by a lovely pool in the river where we waited for the day’s proceedings to be concluded by the Iron Lady.

While the crowd gathered waiting for the last of the runners to return, there was much talk about the happenings in Mayaro and the damage done to an innocent bottle of rum, a casualty of love! There was talk about the cricket match between the Aussies and WI in the Oval and who was going to the Trini Posse lime. More rumours and gossip about who was missing in action and why, etc. So the Iron Lady called the meeting to order, thanked the hares for a "so-so" run, introduced the virgins (there were quite a few) and then gave poofter to the hasher who offended the most. We got to find out who wears the pants and who does the ironing in the official residence of the HM. Finally there was a long diatribe from Harper about how he tried in vain to save an innocent bottle of rum in Mayaro. At the appointed time the meeting was re-adjourned at Uncle Sam’s bar where a few die-hard supporters continued to eat, drink and shit talk while the DJ played some 50s love songs no doubt rightly judging the ages of his audience.

Line Break - On-On Feet

From the Office of the Iron Lady

As I was driven into to the run site of Yara Blanchessue by d man who does give iron and iron meh pants, I thought about the stories about our hashes in this area, the first man to run barefoot and the can beers used at that time, then my thoughts were interrupted like when you taking a shower and the water goes, different hashers approached the car, one giving me the best pepper sauce in town , another with a gadget to use for down downs and many other greetings of Long Live the Iron Lady, I felt like the Queen of England.

Were they hearing the whispers of the breeze that was blowing in Yara before the run? We are hashers through and through, we have had some good runs and limes thus far and Mountain Goat Doon with about 9 other hares did not disappoint they had us climbing up and down those hills like real goats and those who couldn’t be a hash goat that day, there was a walkers trail for them to graze. Excellent run, food and after lime. The hash welcomes all….the desperate housewifes, the white men who can’t jump, the 50 year old virgins, the saints and angels we are one big happy family. On On

Line Break - On-On Feet

Another glorious day and hash on the North Coast!

Although the Mountain Goats are known and feared for ‘plenty hills’, the new extended group of hares offered a slightly more gentle run this time, not without its challenges though.  We decided the bees trail would be too much risk and introduced the beer stop instead (always a winner) with Kailey also advertising people’s food being cooked next to the beers – would a hasher ever be fooled into that? After being led into all directions at the start before heading off onto the right trail through forest and up to a view point overlooking the U- shaping stream, the trail descended to cross the water and up the riverbank to get full view of the waterfall. The stunning waterfall proved enough distraction for people to indulge in a dip (not the focused hard core runners though!) and for the off-duty life guard Doon to miss his whistle and buoy. The run then continued upstream and the shallow and clear stream (or so it was before the runners came) and again life guarding duties were called upon by a few ladies – rightly so they say a life guard is never off duty.
 
Nobody got lost, everybody got a chance for a dip after the run, food and drinks were at hand and the down down kicked off with no delay. No new shoes and no Poofter nominations; an executive decision crowned Jordan, a young boy of about 6-7 years,  Poofter for needing to be fished out when he jumped into the pool and couldn’t feel ground under his feet. We hope such a prize so early in a hasher’s career – youngest Poofter ever- works as motivation and encouragement and will not cause any lasting damage and Jordan we hope to see you again soon on a hash. Out of the possible nominations, a few may also have qualified: the Australian girl hashing in flip flops (but actually have you ever seen an Aussie wearing shoes?) and the English couple who paid $ 400 for a guide to take them to see the Avocat waterfall the day before, only to come back the following day for the hash.

Mahashma introduced a new prize just after the birthday wishes for Doon: the Skinniest Indian Competition which was won by Doon’s son, Kern. I know it is not nice to get older and be beaten by your own son at the same time. There were a few virgins, including the English couple mentioned above and Christiane, who was a first time hare and first time hasher at the same time.

Finally to close off a piece of advice – I didn’t benefit from – for the next hash’s scribe quoted from the last run’s trash #775: "Female hashers be warned – don’t ever let Arthur come near you before the start of the hash!!! That is unless you want to scribe.

Line Break - On-On Feet

Mahashma's Meditations

I got to the run site a little late. Well may be not a little late just plain late. But at times it feels good to be the H.M. because the hash has to wait for your arrival and you get the best parking. Yes, power and office goes to even the Mahashma’s head.
     
The reason I was late was I got stuck behind a certain car on the Old ROAD to Arima. It was a black PCK Cefiro being driven about 3 m.p.h. and trying to avoid any minor hole on the road. I don’t know who the driver was but next time please leave very early for the hash (like the day before!). I was going to make the driver Poofter but he left early.
  
So there I was with no Poofter on hand, so I remedied the situation by taking an executive decision and picking on the young and defenseless. I picked out the young "undertaker" Jordon. He looked helpless enough it was a straight case of child abuse. The young Jordon not knowing his own height wondered into deep water in the river and to be fished out. So I declared him Poofter and he has set the record for the youngest Poofter ever.

Well done Jordon it is the first step in becoming Hash Master some day. And well done Jasmina for a very good write up, beware I will choose you again.

Once again I failed to find the elusive enlightenment that I seek . I suppose it could not have been found around mountain goats (Doon and Peter) anyway. So ON ON to Ravine Sabe .

Welcome to the Virgins and hope to see you again:Emily, Eva , Suren, Claire & Nick, Edward, Orsun, Martin, Naseed, Anabelle, Christian, Sonia, Rensile, Jordan.

BARBADOS

The room list is now complete and balances are now due. Email me at Arturo999@live.com to know your individual balance.

Hash Lingo
Virgins take note of the meaning of these signs!!!

  1. While on the trail CALL “ON ON” when you see bits of shredded paper/flour! It helps those behind/possibly lost hashers.
  2. “O” – check for the correct trail!
  3. “X” – you’re on the wrong trail! Go back to the check point and start again.
  4. “ON PASS” – to pass someone on the trail.
  5. When you are almost in you would see: “ON IN —->” pointing to the correct direction.
  6. For those who can’t keep up with the ‘3F’s’ (FIT, FAST AND FURIOUS) pack then just go with the ‘Backpackers’  (SMART) pack who just let them do all the work.

Line Break - On-On Feet

O Goooooooooooooood!
I get away for so long. Checking my records, the last time I was called upon to do the needful was October 31, 2009. That’s good, that’s very good. Ooops! May be my trash was real bad and much too long, I go still do it my Sinatra way.

Hash Friday
Some of us are a bit partial to Golf on a Friday afternoon and it seems all of we does look de same from behind.  I hear some poor unassuming non- hash golfer bending over to Tee up his balls get slap in the B hind ‘Yur coming on de hash with us tomorrow’?
It so happen that your boy Captain H in town for the weekend, a rear occasion now he back with C an’t A rrive L ate and he arrange his designated to drive back from the Hash. He does only let she drive at night as if she is some Manicou.

Hash Saturday
Well you know being a CAL pilot the ETA was spot on. At precisely 2.15pm he land at my driveway and de stewardess even get out of the cabin to escort me to my designated seat. I try to buckle up but Cap tell me I don’t need to do that in First Class is only Cap and Co pilot in front seat need that. Next thing I know the co pilot wandering if we were suppose to pick up a next passenger, me and Arlene have real room to relax and wandering if we go get demoted to Economy where you get NOTTING at all these days. After a few frantic calls, we settle back down as potential passenger cancelled his reservation as he would have had to take a lap dance from St Joseph. He say ‘that’s  –K –IMPOSSIBLE’, the cell phone reception start to crackup but I thought I heard him say ‘That’s tiresome boy! I can’t take that today again.

I like a squeeze up! But OMG but not when I travelling First Class.

The ETD was delayed a max five minutes for ground clearance but Cap say no worries! We have a westerly so we go make up time en route, just relax and enjoy de ride.  Who tell him say that! I relaxing settling in for a little snooze and next ting you know, the Co pilot put on the stewardess hat, you know how CAL short staffed. The galley short of food and we have to make an unscheduled stop at Night Rider to pickup supplies. Like the toilet facility wasn’t working either and my co-passenger jump out without parachute saying she going to take a leak, all the time we blocking de airways.

Of course, when we get going again I can’t sleep no more, one set of noise in the galley, Guess What! I hear a POP! I say Champagne. Yes boy, we reach! It was a real eye opener! Is crisp bag popping and CAL serving that in First Class. Jack! Is time to fire de Chairman.
Fast forward, I am taking too long to scribe this hash.

The Hash
After some good navigation, we land on a plateau and taxi to a terminal position that rear ended close to the wall so the First Class passengers, that we are, could discretely alight and take off our clothes after a sweaty run. Picture perfect, the Cap come out the cockpit and put on his cap. It fit him well and talk about de treads. Seams boy! The Co pilot not in his class at all! at all! She just regular.
Unlike the writer Dickens, we did not have ‘GREAT EXPECTATIONS’ for this run, from the costuming it was really Beau Jesters clowning around and that’s what we did for the first ten minutes, when the hares finally called On! On!

Nevi has a knack for setting the ’Meet the people run’. Elections over! We run through people yard, under their house and in doing all that, I thought some hasher were going to dive into the kids wading pool. Yes ! A wading pool, not a pothole in de middle of de road! If Kamla was there it would be picture perfect. Oh Gorme! She carrying on this pregnant pause a whole 9 months, is time to deliver.

Finally, the politicking move into the more rural areas and the front runners find some bush and dirty looking ditches. So many, I lose count, like dey taking ‘Advantage’ these Wotless hares. Den the hashers get de rhythm and dey start to mash up the place. One new generation hasherette decide she go break away from de posse, baps! In de dirty water. How she scream and wale and she jumping high, high, in one place like Machel on stage, hoping to rid the ash coloured water from she pantyhose.. Priceless image! On! On!

Up the valley we go, until a walkers/runners fork, make the wrong decision and you up a dirty restricted stream. It was as if the whole bamboo cathedral burn and come down to colour the ravine ash grey. A reminded that the Lenten season is with us, subsequently reinforce with a biblical donkey’s bray as Num Nuts blows his Vuvuzela.
It’s all a blur from then, getting giddy with the climb up and up to lofty height, assisting B-hinds, as legs fail to grip on the sometimes slippery ground. Out of nowhere, Dookie waddles up, his feet swishing close to ground ‘You could go so and meet the road if you had enough or go so’, gesticulating in the opposite direction. We skirt the hill crest and descend again, bamboo once again being the salient feature, Crick! Crack1 Crash! as the youthful herd scamper past down to the river’s bed below, a resistant rock formation showering those who sort solace in its exhilarating flow.

Down the river, the youthful limbs resisting the pounding while I slip and wade in hot pursuit hoping to make sight of the pack at each bend. Dookie’s hobbit like figure appears from nowhere again calling all the while ‘Its getting late! ‘Down the river! Through the X! Forget the trail!’ and as soon as his words are heard he disappears again.
Unable to keep the pace, I am alone for a while, with no paper beyond the X and then ASH appears, with macaw like calls that startle the forest life. There is no response and his sober mind calls On back! Back check! No sooner said, a mirage of tired runners return to help find the right trail.

On! On! Up we trek, this time to the crest of the hill that eventually reveals the panoramic view that eases the aching soul, its downhill from here and eventually the On! In! signals a familiar end to the Arouca run, the Wotless discard of unwanted goods that will increasingly scar our hashing trail. The hash site itself will most likely not be there next year as housing development encroaches on our treasured Northern range.

Apres Hash
The Apres was idyllic, setting Sun with rising biggest Moon, that didn’t look so big, for many, many years. Beers on tap and special FREE birthday treat courtesy ROBIN who is now befriended by all including Batman. A really special treat!!! Thanks Robin. So many Virgin one hash stands, change the constitution for FREE beers for ONLY those that are not twice shy.

Well the kegs done and time to duss it. Cap’s designate Co pilot take the stick but the big big Moon up in de sky and it real bright so Manicou car see too clear. Cap have to make sure passengers safe, so he get out of cockpit to navigate on foot. Finally, all clear and the takeoff is smooth as you know who’s bottom.

We get a little turbulence on the way so we pull to one side to let the ominous clouds of hash SUVs go by. With fair weather we move on to an unscheduled stop at Night Rider to again pick up supplies. Well! It turn out to be a nice small lime, surprisingly the shit talk running as usual, despite some Lenten abstinence from the likes of Eggy and Co, who inviting everybody to Friday prays.

Right about now, Manicou go quiet, with chin on my shoulder she start to turn up she face as if in pain. Lord Martin, three time hash monarch turn doctor packing ice on she foot. Cap jump up, buy some liquid supplies and say ETD in 30 seconds. Too much attention, he take charge of the limping Manicou who still car see, and now car walk, but thank GOD, she could still drive.

FIRST CLASS SERVICE! ALL THE WAY HOME.

I can’t wait to hash with CAL’s Cap H and Co pilot again.

Line Break - On-On Feet

Mahashma's Meditations

This run was really set in the foothills of D’abadie and not Arouca. The hares did a good job but I am sure the honors of the day went to the local  Kyle. Without Kyle Ya Mammy , Numbnuts , Dookie et al would doubtless  have screwed up. Well I did not find enlightenment here instead I found a great after hash lime. We had a splendid line up of food and it was free thanks to Robin celebrating his birthday. Robin also gave the hash two kegs of beer. He did not wish to say how old he was but look at him anyone would say he was thirty-two. 
Thank you Robin we much appreciate your gift now whenever there is free food on the hash please let Doon eat first and as much as he can he is the skinniest Indian on the hash. He makes Mahashma look fat.

Let it be known that the Harper boys were innocent of any throwing of missiles at the Hash Calypso Show. They are completely exonerated of any charges and will be duly compensated.

The after lime moved to the Knight Rider bar, for all who braved it had a good time the music man Richard De Freitas showed up and got the crowd going.

Welcome to our virgins: Joel, Esther, Seth, Fidel, Haily, Mark, Nyasha, Delano, Etienne and Darryl, please come again. The poofter shirt went to Michelle for hitching a ride in a car at the start of a run after arriving late she was the clear winner. 

Birthday Corner: Robin Basant, Christian Edinborough, Denese Chin, Sandra Wong and more to come…………..

Line Break - On-On Feet

SATURDAY MORNING 11:00.AM……….JUST GOT UP AND MY HEAD HURTS FROM THE NIGHT BEFORE OR WAS IT FROM ALL THOSE KARAOKE SINGERS.
FEET, CALVES, THIGHS, AND ALL OVER BODY PAINS FROM THE RUN THE NIGHT BEFORE AND THE LIME LATER.
I  REALLY DIDN’T BELIEVE I WOULD HAVE TO DRIVE AUDREY AND AIKENHEAD TO THE HASH BUT THEY INSISTED.
The drive itself was like a hash.   We finally got to the hash site to see a very large turnout. I thought with all the rain and mud with the hills the back pack was in for some punishment.
We gathered for the normal hash instructions from Doon  and off went…..ON ON!! I decided to walk since my feet were killing me but I couldn’t take the heckling from Audrey and all that jostling in the back. It’s brutal in the walkers pack in case you did not know. (Try it sometime at your own peril).
 Off we ran down to the sea followed by a false trail and the back was now in front, much to the chagrin of the front runners. More pushing and pulling and jostling for position.
Eventually my legs cooperated as I was feeling better and I started to run without any respect from the front runners for an elder statesman. Some of them can be downright humourless. It’s trample or be trampled in their need for bragging rights of who passed who.
Finding ourselves very close to our run site but on the opposite side of the river we wound our way along the river banks finally running in and out of the river bed. Filling my shoes with sand and gravel…
The hares did an excellent job of keeping the pack together, so good as to get the front runners pissed off with their excellent checks, which demoted a lot of them to the back.
I was enjoying myself immensely when I came upon the dreaded hills, a monster of a hill.  I slipped and fell a couple of times and had to take a breather since my heart was beating like a base man in meh head.
Oh!! Did I mention that I passed a couple of front runners…. Well not quite..they passed me!!!
Well at last we got to the top and was rewarded with a fantastic view although by this time I just wanted to vomit!!
Soon after, I found a road leading down and I found a short cut in to the run site.  That was it for me.
I later overheard two you “whipper snappers” who were racing in arguing about which one of them won the race. I just quietly told myself the hash is not a race …and that is my story and I am sticking to it!!
Clearly they had not been out carousing the night before!
As the runners came in and we settled into the usual banter and beers.  The elixir of life!!
HASH  BANTER!!
Betty Boobs was overheard complaining about being kept back by the back pack on the hill…ehhhh…. BITE ME!!!
AMAZINGLY NO POOFTERS ON THIS RUN!!
MAHASHMA WAS THE ONLY NOMINEE FOR THE HENIOUS CRIME OF CARNIVAL CRUISE FIASCO!!
ROAD BLOCK….  SPEAK TO SLIPPERY MOSS,…THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOU  HAVE AN UP-TO-DATE  INSURANCE AND GOOD FRIENDS TO DROP YOU HOME……………ON  ON!!

27th Anniversary Run

27TH ANNIVERSARY RUN

DATE:  Friday 4th February, 2011
VENUE: La Casa de Ibiza, Tragarete Road
SCRIBE: Cappy

The hash assembled like most hashes but what scared me was the line up…ONLY RUNNING MACHINES.
ASHE AND MIKE HALE GOT THE USUAL 5 MINUTES. It took off down to ONE WOODBROOK PLACE winded its way to ARIAPITA AVE………
Thank God Michelle asked and got the location of the next beer stop and was told Corkies!!!! and we decided to make a bee line for it. That by itself was punishing enough, the other hashers headed up to St. Clair Ave.
When we arrived at the first bar stop we saw Zam smiling sheepishly along with Eric sitting in  his van which was not being used as a support vehicle. He had retired it early for the evening to get a head start with the liming.
With miles of running ahead of me, soon enough up came Richard Hart , Dave Aitkenhead, Harper,  and the rest of the motley crew.
We were off again and spotted the hares heading into Maraval, NAAAH !!!!!! MADNESS!!  What does a hasher of my experience do?? I took a short cut in the direction of Long Circular Mall……… This is when I questioned my logic… “who tell me I could run with these buggers I could have stayed by the bar and had some cold brewskies with Randal and Christine.””
I struggled my way past Ambassador Hotel as the hasher zig zagged their way through Maraval, and raced to the next Beer Stop in St. James. Not me I headed back, since that was far enough for me……. Marlay had long dropped out, when I saw Michelle in Eric’s van.  I struggled my way in.
The others got in sometime later with everyone exhausted and complaining that the run was way too long, but still tried to keep up Macho appearances.  I am sure in their minds there was the thought of the following day’s hash being set by Doon. 
Behind the smiles was pain, even Nico and Aitkenhead had their turn at short cuts. After discussions about the run, the run turned out to be 7 miles and fast!!! After the usual de brief and back slapping we headed into the bar.
The meltdown into Madness started with Christine opening with her rendition on the Karaoke microphone. The melody forgotten but the madness was in high gear.
In attendance was THE HALE SISTERS, AHSA, BETTY, THE MC GEE’S
And so many more best forgotten.. I mean their repertoires!!!
Not surprisingly Martin by nigt anointed himself MC.. ..and the festivities began.
Betty sang……….Asha sang
Audrey …… tried to sing.
McGee…spoke…Put your sweet lips a little closer to the phone.
Harper screamed ……something about Shabba.
Christian Anderson…..sang quite well surprise!! surprise!!
And Mashasma had the girls pulling and writhing on him while he croaked something which I can’t remember.
Randal tried to sing MY Way but Martin sang it his way instead.
And the music got lost in the screaming, and somehow everyone felt they were all superstars…I have to give the EMMY to Betty for stage her performance.. if that is what it was………
All in all, it was a great evening of silliness and fun and Laughter…as the hash events used to be in yesteryear…  It would be great to have that back again.!!
HOWEVER,YOU HAD TO BE THERE!!
FOR THOSE THAT DID NOT COME YOU MISSED A FANTASTIC EVENING OF
THE 27TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE PORT OF SPAIN HASH HOUSE HARRIERS……..ON ON..

Line Break - On-On Feet

Mahashma's Meditations

You can always rely on Doon and company to set great runs. This was no exception. In case anyone does not know by now Doon’s hash name is the Flying Indian. He flies uphill like the wind. The run was well set and the food was on time and therefore was sold out. Advice to any future Hares is never let the food arrive late. 
A special welcome to our virgins: John, Pauline, Miranda, Hank, Amalia (New Shoes), Antonio and Raphal and I hope to see you all again. One of our virgins was set up by the person who brought her along because she was never warned about the consequence of wearing new shoes.

The Mahashma was set up by Big Mike McGee to get the Poofter’s shirt. It’s just not right to give the HM the Poofter’s nominations, simply because he wanted everyone to go on “Boodrams’ Fantasy Vacation” on the Carnival Victory. Hash Cash would have refunded everyone.
