‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house
Not a sound could be heard ‘cept the click of a mouse.
Mag is now finished, the board’s all a glitter,
And Ana is busy on facebook and twitter.
The gang’s gathered down at Joe’s diner I’m told,
Midge says Becky is serving her fried motherboard.

Wondered what people did when they’re not sitting here.

A social worker is what GBC used to be.

For Rowen it’s stealing that just can’t be beat.
VHL has magic that she likes to hurl,
And after all of these years, mad still fights like a girl.
Barb likes the vampires and things that can bite her,

Moondancer and gremlin in Risen dug graves,
Pokey enjoyed it so much she gave it much praise.

With Demoshtenes, Sherryah flying dragons galore.

And hagatha is back in Divinity One.

And so my dear boomers we’ve come to the end,
Of another great year filled with family and friends.
Let’s all raise a glass and maybe a song,
And say a small prayer for those who’ve passed on.
I’ve not been around, real life’s got in the way,
But there is one more thing that I would like to say.
Dear looney the answer to your PM is late,
‘Twas the grinch stole the poem of two thousand and eight.
To Marita and Jan, Laura, Jenny and Dee,
We’ve been friends for ten years, hope we always will be.
As my family and I watch eight reindeers take flight,
We wish you all Merry Christmas, and a wonderful night.
A very merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year.
love to all,
