I was fortunate while I was on the Rock to meet up with the brother of an old friend of mine. The old friend is the server guy who hosts my website. The brother made sure that I found some good food to eat while there, did a wee bit of sightseeing, and of course, got Screeched In.
I asked my friend’s brother what his blog name should be and he was happy to reveal that he already had a pseudonym for the Hash House Harriers. That’s a club for drinkers who have a running problem. I KNOW! Just what I thought!
Since it’s a worldwide organization, the name will often acknowledge the region you hail from. Thus, my friend’s brother is known as Take it up the Eh? (Eh? being a Canadian saying.)
Eh? had a red silk dress made for him especially for the famed Red Dress Run while hashing in Thailand, and I loved this image of him in his lovely dress with red bows in his beard.
As an added bonus, I give you the get-up for the Lingerie Run, which turns out is quite a hit with the Harriers. He appears to have quite a buzz on in the picture. I suspect that is true, since he looked at me with both eyes when he accompanied me. His baby beard is now a full-grown goatee, which he tells me intrigues his gay friends. Seems that mens always want to see if the drapes and rugs really do match.
Take it up the eh? (who, by the way, Knudsey, is not ghey) would have been delighted to transport me to the other side of the rock (nearly 1,000 km) but it turns out he had a run in D.C. the next day. He assured me, however, that he is very compliant, and not at all a Pee Warden.
He’s a very obliging sort. A little bit goofy. A whole lot smart. Just like most of my friends are. And aren’t you glad that I educate you about these sorts of things?
