Sixteen Questions: Rose eh


Rose eh is a member of the Hogtown Hash House Harriers in Toronto, Canada. She’s been hashing for almost 20 years. A frequent hash road-tripper, Rose eh is often sighted at major hash events around the world, and helped organize InterAm 2005 in Toronto. I sent a long list of questions and asked her to answer five of them. She answered sixteen. I’m glad I didn’t ask her to lay a five-mile trail!


When & where was your first hash?

Toronto – 1989.

How did you find the hash, or did the hash find you?

A guy I was dating took me to a run.

How did you get your hash name?

I drink red wine – therefore the Rose and I’m from Canada – eh.

What hasher taught you the most about hashing?

Ian Cumming.

When & where was your first away hash?

Detroit/Ann Arbor, 1990.

Where are some of the places you’ve hashed?

It’s easier to tell you where I haven’t hashed.

What do you most love about hashing?

The people (hashers).

What don’t you love about hashing?

Some hashers don’t respect the rights of “civilians.”

What’s the best thing that ever happened to you at a hash?

I’ve laughed more at the hash than anywhere else I can imagine.

What’s the worst thing that ever happened to you at a hash?

Riding in the back of a Ryder truck with someone drunk driving.

Where are some places you haven’t hashed, but would like to?

Anywhere in South America, also Copenhagen, Turkey.

Have any of your attitudes toward hashing or hashers changed over the years?

I [now] enjoy organizing almost as much as participating. I must have lost a few brain cells over the years!

What are some of your favorite haring techniques?

Make sure there’s enough cold beer.

Would you tell just anybody about the hash, or only people you think might become good hashers?

I always think good looking men will make great hashers . . . so they’ll get a great explanation.

Are there any core fundamentals you believe all hashes and hashers should embrace?

Do the run unless you are physically unable. Respect in the circle.

What’s in your hashing future?

More of the same (I hope).
