I've gotten a couple email responses to people about my last entry about the Drinkers with a Running Problem group that actually shed some light on what it is all about.
Here's a link to a website about what is known as "hashing." It seems this is some kind of international activity (google shows "Hash House Harrier" groups all over the world) and is described in these passages as:
...it may be the perfect combination of exercise, social interaction and, well, beer. We are runners, but without a great emphasis on speed. Hence the slogan "Drinkers with a running problem".
Sounds interesting... if it weren't for the strange dressing up, and the fact that website refers to men as "grand masters" and women as "matresses" (UGH!) this could be my kind of exercise...
P.S. I am way behind on reading blogs. I am actually way behind on mostly everything, but especially reading my usual blogs. I don't have my laptop, so I don't have wireless. Usually I sit in bed and drink coffee and read blogs (and watch the news) in the early morning. Now I just watch the news. I really hope my laptop comes back soon! Being tied to a desk is just terrible!
