Nurse Wretched

For a few years now I’ve been writing an advice column called Ask Dr. Down-Down. Dr. Down-Down runs a small clinic with the assistance of Nurse Wretched, Flying Booger, and Sally the One-Legged Orphan Girl from Bosnia. I haven’t thought about the clinic staff recently, but today I got this e-mail from Pay Per View:



What’s Happening at IH?

What, no live blogging from InterHash? C’mon, people! What’s happening in Chiang Mai?


Another Year, Another Trail

How many times do you have to hare your own birthday hash before it becomes a tradition? Considering how quickly things become traditional hereabouts, I’d say twice.

Interhash Drudgin’ (Part II)

Previous interhash muckraking here.

The interhash committee apparently promised the city of Chiang Mai there would be no nudity, hence the prohibition on ice and bare bottoms. I’m told there will be plenty of both at pre- and post-interhash trails organized by local clubs.



Beer Checks

I don’t know if the San Francisco HHH still does it, but they used to place their beer checks within easy distance of the on-in, less than a mile. I always thought that was a wonderful idea: I don’t want a full can of suds sloshing around in my belly when there’s two or three [...]
