It’s not even 8am and I am swamped! Missing work yesterday didn’t help. So for now I am going to make this a placeholder and hope to put up a real post this afternoon.

If you need a morning dose of Paulie, then check out the Atlanta Metblogs post about hashing that I wrote yesterday. Hashers will chuckle at how nice I made it sound, non-hashers will learn a little about our Secret Society.

    Great description of hashing, Paulie! I love that you included all the different hashes. It seems like you (not you personally but you in general) sneeze and a new hash is created – all those middle of the week ones. I have not been to those. I wonder if they are any fun? Silly question really. If there’s beer, I assume there is fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Thanks. I was trying to make it Atlanta-centric since that’s the idea behind Metblogs.

    Ooh, just realized I omitted Moonlight. Oh well. I’ve not been to a single 2 for Tuesday”, C U Next Tuesday, SLUT, etc. Hell, I barely make it to a weekend hash these days. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Funny post, one edit, in the description for Pine Lake, you worte “If you show up for Atlanta”

    Hope to read more later!

  4. CRAP (and thanks!). I caught a similar copy/paste error in Wheelhopper but missed that one in Pine Lake. ***off to edit***

    I liked that you included Pinelake, and didn’t go the ah4 website route of “ah4 has more scenic trails” … which still makes me chuckle

    I have always associated “Pay your money; take your chances” with Southern Comfort? I may have misconstrued that from their fearless Religious Advisor – HareLips. At any rate, it wouldn’t be the first, and probably not the last, hash related faux pas I make. In the meantime, I most definitely have to get you a Southern Comfort koozie emblazened with the motto, whoever rightfully can claim it, so I have company in my error.

  7. B-Bob, I think you are correct. It’s just I’ve been YBF’ed more times at Black Sheep than at SoCo (probably because I quit doing SoCo in 1999).

    Consider my transfer of mottoes (really? There’s an ‘e’ in that?) “artistic license” ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Barb says:

    B-Bob – you are correct, SoCo started the saying. But, it certainly does apply to black sheep, so we will let Paulie slide on this.

  9. And since when is accuracy important when related to hash history? Who do I look like, Public Enema? ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. nplts says:

    google “pays your money, takes your chances”

    there is no argument

  11. brenan says:

    Another SoCoism that I think is both helpful and descriptive: “Get in the creek, stay in the creek.”
