|The scene at the beer stop before the hordes arrived.|
|Meanwhile back at the run site, Thani gets into the food early|
The Egg Towers fantasy factory yesterday upheld its fine tradition of culinary sentimentality by serving Christmas dinner to the somewhat bemused vernacular contingent at HH3, who had anyway produced their own local feast, but then managed to eat most of the Christmas fare all the same, taking the remains of the Christmas pud with them when they left. Meanwhile the Farangs tucked into the grub and polished off the vino thoughtfully provided by Inchdick. Sex Teacher and SOTM Wannabee, with the result that the consumption of beer was somewhat lower than usual, and much of the beer disappeared when Sex Printer, Robocop Tsunami et al left sometime after eight, leaving the Farangs and Scud to polish off the slab of Nouveau Leo thoughtfully donated by Star Soccer.
Before all that of course, there had been a run, which chief cook Kai Jeow had somehow found time to set between roasting the chickens and glazing the carrots. The 6,4k long run featured time-saving "checks" to avoid all that messy business of setting F's, and they were successful in keeping the pack together at least until the beer stop. Meanwhile, the short run joined by Lady of the Lamp took a short cut between the 5th check and the beer stop, reducing the run to 5.4k and the front walkers were there marginally before the long amblers as Saturday's rather more demanding run took its toll. From thereon in Sex Teacher took on the role of front runner managing to get home ahead of both LotL and SOTMII, who seemed to be ailing more than most.
Thanks to everybody who contributed to another great Christmas run, particularly to the HH3 chefettes, Sexy, Sex Si and Donkey and to Smoked Ham for the soup and bread. Let's do it again.... next year!
