Dear Bob and Karen -

Well another year has come and gone. Can you believe it? Who'd a thunk three Christmas's ago I'd still be here and still writing Christmas poems no less laugh

Thank you so much for this board and for just being you. I love you both and wish you only the best in 2002.

Deedle, Janers, Jenny and Laura what can I say - you guys are part of my family (Bob and Karen you know you are also) and I love you all.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and wonderful New Year.


And boomers I sure hope you don't fall asleep before you reach the end of this. It's a looong one. happydance

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas – Boomer Style

‘Twas the night before Chirstmas, in the Boomers white house.
Here’s a virtual tour, use your keyboard or mouse.
Our BAAG lists are hung by the chimney with care.
And Catlee sure hopes the mailman soon will be there.

Carmen is nestled all snug in her bed,
Counting e-mail notifications from her Exile burning thread.
Sparky called it a night seems Bob’s coloring again,
So the boardroom keeps changing each time we go in.

Then over in Puzzle, Marcie gave a great shout,
Denis posted a wackie – Jen gave him a clout.
Sherlock, esube & blueEyes all ran to his aid
Stitchman saw what he posted, sent Pj and rick for his cane.

An elevator puzzle caused that whole room to groan,
‘Specially Pandora, acornia, burpee, granny and Joan.
So they crept in a corner and plotted together,
And Larlar was scheduled to be tarred and feathered.

Over in RPG Hagatha heard such a clatter,
Soozie and Pokey stopped taffing to see what was the matter.
Away to the window Zanthia flew like the dickens
And saw Mad, Marian and Oz killing flame throwing chickens.

Ashley’s still playing sims, Kateet and Tamia have Hot Date,
Tigger finally got hers, even though it was late.
The world’s rid of aliens, now Don’s work is done.
Clovis started Arcanum, Ray thinks Thief II is more fun.

And over in Glitches the light’s always on,
So Jenny100 and Foofoo can help get games to run.
Qtpa2t’s rom drive has developed a conflict,
Sequoia, mignonne and Sami just want Atlantis 3 fixed.

JoanieS needed Oprah when the gaming woes got to her.
Jasper got Byzanitne to swap, thanks to AHuber
Claudette says Jack Orlando can sit for a bit,
Billybob’s secretly wondering if computers are worth it.

Happy Gamer’s not happy and feels Zoly’s pain
About having new games that you can’t get to play.
Between patches and scratches and things that don’t work
It’s a wonder we gamers aren’t completely berserk.

Beth put the whole room of Mixed Bag on a diet,
Healthy eating and exercise, even z said he’d try it.
KarenNJ and Glenna, Rayy, Bea and Christina,
All hoped to lose inches this holiday season.

Betty Lou’s cousin Carol, Josie and Bristol’s quick wit,
Will keep Singer smiling since smoking he’s quit.
We know that he’ll do it – but it takes incredible will,
Just ask Cindi, Puzzlewoman, Tom Sr. and Jill.

Then Dee told the crowd – “there’s a party in here”
Jenny’s just won the title “SA of the year”.
RivenfireMarble’s no cook so she’ll bring the booze,
Midge said she’d bring pie, MWW’s bringing food.

Snowmoon then tossed her cookies, Muffinbutt came to play,
Rosemary and Gordon stopped by just to brighten the day.
Then came axeman and oldman and Solman and Sassy,
And Emma and housewife arrived bringing Tami.

Reenie’s gotten the sniffles that stopped up her head,
She put Arthur2 on her list, and went back to bed.
“Cats” mom2, Pa and the Hat cried “let’s be of good cheer,
Uncle Norman and Peter are finally here."

By the fire a discussion of how names came to be,
Mac_attack’s came from school, o1alien’s from ET.
DocPaul has a doctorate, Hedgie actually has hedgehogs,
Sqirrely’s nephew named her, Rowan’s named for her dogs.

Holly loves rainbows, Holycow likes baseball,
Aspen’s named for a kitty, Daysleeper9’s name says it all.
Doris used her real name and pernilla did too,
Pittypat’s from a patient, Gamer’s came out of the blue.

Busy writing reviews of the games on their shelves,
Across the hall in a room are some tireless elves,
Lundar, Gameman, nolalou, Rick36 and Becky,
Toger, flotsam, bpeg, kat165 and ron.etti.

Witchen popped in her head from Adventure to say
DoreenS just found out – Versaille II’s on the way.
Tally Ho, Norma and MaG are missing out on the fun,
They’re stuck in their rooms till their walkthroughs are done.

Debra’s finished Loch Ness, Gatorlaw’s roaming in Hitchcock.
Ratcatcher’s looking for hamsters, Gremlinuk saw one in Faust.
Lasanidine says that she’s just plain not having much fun,
And keeps muttering bad things about a game called Kofun.

Andy’s just started Torin, Beerhead says he’s addicted.
Gog just finished Schizm and glad that he did it.
Advgamer gets solutions while she’s taking a shower.
Cheryl quit Nine when the organ puzzle got to her.

Presto finished A3, margaret’s got Versaille 2,
Skully thinks ROTS was just one great big snooze.
Peter Smith thinks that games with a story are best,
So who needs fancy graphics and fighting DirectX?

There’s a major discussion on who you’d like to be,
Cynch says ‘ole Gage Blackwood, Elven King - Tex Murphy.
Liz wants to be Adrienna, Moe Perry a Brog
APL says Catherine, Waghornet – Max the dog.

Crispeto stated that Riven was one of the best,
Lexxy and frogtogo say GK1’s their best guess.
Magician-Atlantis The Lost Tales, Arwen says that it’s Drac,
Vic, taf4 and Angela think Grim Fandango's where it's at.

Ladyyve, Mary and Andee all think that it’s Myst,
Susie Q and ricomon put Pandora Directive on the list.
MooeyG and Maritje say Timelapse, if you’re not in a hurry.
SQF, Tristy and colpet all say The Longest Journey.

Joyce is stuck in a game that’s called Sanitarium,
Bert Jamin’s been helping with A3 and with Schizm.
Bishop2 and Lorryrose said that’s a very good reason,
That over in Hints, it’s a real busy season.

It’s now way after midnight, we boomers are sleepy,
So we trudge up the stairs, dream of games that are creepy.
But I wanted to say as I turned out the lights,
Merry Christmas Dear Boomers, and to all a good night.

Dark Side : Risen
Light Side:

I can only please one person a day. Today isn't your day. Tomorrow's not looking good either.

I am always amazed by your poems. You have outdone yourself this year. To remember all those people and to personalize it with a tidbit or two! What time it must have taken you!
Merry Christmas to you and all our GameBoomers! And thanks to Karen and Bob for creating such a wonderful community! smile
The answer is....chocolate! Who cares what the question is.....
