Loc: Body in California/Heart in Ha...
‘Twas the night before Christmas and Bob and Karen’s white house,
Had Boomers arriving from east, west, north and south.
Rayy and Bea counted noses and started to grin,
Over 4,000 boomers, and more coming in.

Lasandaine hung our game lists and used sticky tape,
Laura’s outside and pacing (the mailman is late).
Inferno, Marian and Liz are out pacing too,
Rosemary and Gordon are writing reviews.

Nickie is nestled all snug in her bed,
While Zanzarah fairies dance round in her head.
MaG and Norma in jammies are busy indeed,
They’re walkthrough a-writing for Snowmoon’s in need.

We gamers were gaming each on our computers,
Adventures, role playing and first person shooters.
When out the front door came a loud va-va-varoom,
‘Tis Witchen and Dee zooming in on a broom.

Jenny ran out to see with her hurt back and all,
Which caused Jonathan to yell, “it’s Dark out, don’t Fall.”
They all trooped back in, Canuckdenis in tow,
Who for some reason hid warelf in the snow.

Koala and Snowshoe thought trouble was brewing,
acornia, burpee and Redz were GameBoomer Fueding.
Tom Sr. and funlcake joined in with the game,
Pandora and Stitchman then shouted out names:

Hey Marso, demosthenes, Larlar and esube,
Come Milo, manxman, carabantes and androthi.
DocPaul finally speaks, Thunderchild’s all a-quiver,
The room holds it’s breath, PJ wins his first squiggle!

Bristol, tigger and Josie tell jokes by the door,
That have Doris and carmen rolling round on the floor.
Doreen happened to mention a cute color test.
It was just picking colors, let’s see who’s the best.

Colpet - eighty-eight, Midge got seventy-five,
Clare and RFM one hundred, after several tries.
Poor Shaz kept on trying, but never figured it out,
So she sat in a corner and decided to pout.

Over by the tv, the Survivor clan talk,
About who the next member in the party will walk.
Gremlynn loved NYC even though he was lame,
Jeff Strand’s so addicted he purchased the game.

Puzzlewoman and Helen felt sorry for Brian,
Marcie just wished that the whole group stopped crying.
Lorryrose then took note that Clay had a nose issue,
But he handled it such that he needed no tissue.

Bredon and Scout discuss Buffy in voices quite low,
Tristy feels kind of silly for watching the show.
SueMac thinks Spike is a blithering idiot,
Asazen’s sad in Australia because they can’t see it.

Rainbow freely admitted that he was Snood challenged,
Justine explained the time waster and swore he would love it.
Hedgie had Penguin Puzzle, now Snood rules her world.
Mszv said one day, but for now is Bejeweled.

Mac wondered how people came up with their names,
Bastet’s Queen of Cats, Thatldu means “Stop the train”
Lonewolf just liked his, and looney’s describes her,
Horsedancer loves horses, APL plays adventures.

Waghornet got his from his mom’s maiden name,
Taylor’s mom well she is one, Bryan’s mom is the same.
Sqrllover raised squirrels, dallymisty for her dogs,
Gimme for a minute, luv2travl ‘cause she does.

Singer, Jen and Namma, their contests did plot,
Granny’s elbow was hurting, she mouse clicked a lot.
Emma won for best slogan, made Christina proud.
Flotsam, Billybob, Dawn B with their limericks wowed.

Halloween was discussed and Dudemako did wonder
Whether Gabriel or Manny was best, and did ponder.
Schawb35 said Max, mcb(mike) thought Tex Murphy.
Mugsy - Gage Blackwood and Cynch mentioned Granny

fov felt with work, Rinoa would suit her,
KarenNJ said Nancy, Angie B. thought Kate Walker.
Andy thought about Rincewind, Mr2U-George Stobbart,
goforfun likes the Clayman housewife, Lara Croft.

In Bree’s library fake books conceal the game faces,
Jenny100 stores hers in various bookcases.
Peter’s thinking of crates he can stack on the floor,
Mary’s are under the bed, JMK’s are in drawers.

Pam stores hers in the closet as does Betty Lou,
Mad and Glenna made gamerooms, ratracer did too.
Red stores games in chests, Dagokid’s are on shelves,
Lakerz’s walk-in closet just speaks for itself.

Hanksdog wanted help on what game he should play,
Dawn told him Post Mortem would sure make his day.
PAR bid on Obsidian and actually won,
taf4 got one too now they’re both in for fun.

Happy Gamer was questioning the game Last Express,
It’s one of Jim’s favorites, he thinks it’s the best.
Linds said she can’t get Sanitarium to work,
After girlgeek’s exploded, she’s afraid now to look.

Qt has the hots for one A. Parker Cameron,
ramona agrees that the bald guy’s a cute one.
Gabriel Knight makes daysleeper9 and sccurie swoon,
Dadguy wondered out loud if men should leave the room

The over forty-five crowd are there by the fire
And some are so old, I’m surprised they aren’t tired
In the seventies club we find Bevlee and Patsy,
The sixies have Sami, Squirrely, Claudette and Cherie

The fifties have Sunny, kukaa, ron.etti
Kriskips, Bruce, and Calypso are forty already
Marybeth’s forty-eight, Bruce says he’s forty nine,
Kevin says forty six, I’m not telling you mine.

Alaska inquired about DarkFall2
Friedmonky showed her the link, rick stated “who knew?”
Sequoia finished Syberia, felt she lost her best friend,
SQF and gamenut didn’t want it to end.

In FMISF, Ladyyve was a witch,
Nolalou spoke too, but his voice he did switch.
Lexxy and Oz beta tested so bugs wouldn’t be
Like the one desertliac found in MOTD.

Rowan’s playing RHEM and boy is she lost,
Glynn’s cursing the Pharaoah – Skylark’s playing Faust.
Axeman done Broke the World, Gelert’s got Discworld One
Jill finished DarkFall, Chel – realmyst and Shadoan.

Joanie39 is asking for help and for aid
For Gideon’s Gallery – she’s been there for days.
o'1alien is stuck in Dark Side of the Moon
kwbridge at the West Garrison and wants to leave soon.

“What games do you want?” Kim wondered out loud.
“I’m falling behind”, Fongo said to the crowd.
Mordock and CyFurr both want Sherlock Holmes,
Ghostlady wants Gast (she likes ghosts that roam).

And speaking of Ghosts, the group heard of a sale,
Audrey522 ordered one, advgamer as well.
Tom M, Solman and waves all ordered one too,
MrLipid had questions, (wonder if he got through).

Worst mazes came up, Gremlinuk said it was Myst,
Gameman swore Overseer just had to be it.
LadyLinda did the Kyrandia cave in a daze,
Satch said the whole game of RHEM was one great big maze.

Zanthia’s crowd is discussing the games to be had,
Divine Divinity eats hard drives and hagatha is mad.
Rainbowlady still thinks that the games sounds like fun,
Polo says MMIX just might be the one.

Reenie and Chuck having fits playing in Alice,
They can’t seem to tackle mushroom bouncing with prowlice.
Pokey’s trying to help – even mentioned some ropes,
They both finally got it and felt like such dopes.

TooManyHours is taffing a-doing,
CraigR, jasper and Sassy say have fun a-looting.
Martian Gothic’s got same knowing not what to do,
DougMmillsap is there with a pointer or two.

oldman started Tribunal, feardust Realms of the Haunting,
philby is saying it’s console games he’s wanting.
Susie-Q Land of Lore, MWW Shenmu 2,
Ray’s got so many games, he’s not sure what to do.

VHLMagic and Debra are Morrowwind a-playing,
DanF and Bredon Impossible Creatures are weighing.
Catsmom just got Planescape and wondered a bit,
After hearing the raves, Drizzt thought he might try it.

kat, Chounette, Dr.Andrew, Magician, frazap,
Presto, Betje, Indiana, to Gog and genf.
Catlee, Aberfoyle, lspace, Z and Tamia,
Agent P., Cindi, and margaret have a great Christmas season.

But along with the joy there of course has been sorrow,
And two wonderful boomers won’t share our tomorrows.
Uncle Norm and Moonlioness you’ll both always stay,
In our hearts and our minds for the rest of our days.

And so my dear boomers another year’s gone,
And I’ve since rediscovered what I’ve known all along.
That GameBoomer members are caring and kind,
In a world full of hate, that’s a wonderful find.

So the poem is now done and as I turn out the lights,
Merry Christmas GameBoomers, and to all, a good night.

Love to you all and a very Merry Christmas,

syd

BRAVO, SYD!!! bravo bravo bravo

This has GOT to be the best one yet!
I doubt that there is anyone you did forget!
I felt so sad when I read it, I did shed a tear.
Uncle Norm and Moonlioness no longer are here.
And now please do rest, lest you tire,
You are one that we love and admire.

Merry, Merry Christmas, Syd! wave

We could say that syd is a "diamond in the rough" but we can't. To us, she is the Hope diamond! The Hope of wishes and dreams!

You cannot bid for her on E-Bay or another website. Miraculously, she is our very own syd.

We could not be more blessed, all of us, at GameBoomers, during this holiday season. She is nothing, if not the spirit of the season.

We love her as all of you do!

Happy Holidays to all of you,

Karen & Bob

Just echoing everyone else. I also think this is the best you have done - so far - of course there is always next year and the way we are growing you are going to need time to start composing again.
Your Christmas poem brings a lot of joy and pleasure to us all - and now its a tradition. I admire you so much for being able to produce the goods.
I think also that it is good for us to remember our losses as well as our gains for the year and thanks for that as well.

Syd, this was so great!! You really must've worked hard on this! thumbsup

For anybody else who is new to Gameboomers this year like I am, Syd's previous Christmas poems are listed in the "Hall of Fame" section of the message board, which you can find HERE . I was snooping around the board hoping to find them, and there they were!

Kudos, Syd! Most excellent job!! I'm no poet but I've written a ditty or two in my time & I know it's no easy matter. Can I make a request? End next year's poem with the word ORANGE! lol

p.s. A little birdie told me Syd starts composing right after Halloween! If I wrote it, I'd have to start in January!!! <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" />

Merry Xmas, Boomers!!!

Wow, Syd! Much like everyone else, I am simply amazed at how you were able to rhyme and include so many Gameboomers! And I remember so many references to various threads at all the different forums involving the different members. I tip my Lakers' hat to you. I now know why you had no time to reload The Scroll. God knows only the task of writing such an amazing poem could have kept you from this game. smile I hope everyone has a great (and safe) holiday season.

lol lol lol You guys are something else - Gelert - blatant bump??? no wonder I love this place smile

To those members who's names I forgot - I do apologize - it was not intential. You know the Christmas saying: "making a list and checking it twice?" Well, I made a list, checked it once, added more names, checked it twice, added more names, checked it thrice, added more names, checked it four times, added more names and still forgot people. I don't know how <img border="0" alt="[santa]" title="" src="graemlins/santa.gif" /> does it <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" />

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful things you've said - you have no idea what it means to me. I've had rather a downer week this week and reading all these posts brought a smile to my face and tears to my eyes.

Merry Christmas everyone and have a safe and wonderful New Year.

And yes Lakerz this is the only thing that would keep me from playing The Scroll wink

Great Job Syd!!! Wouldn't you know I would be the last to read it..guess I was too busy looking for the "Bait" in "Ghost Dogs"..finally found that "fly swatter" though! Now I gotta go look for the "Hall of Fame" so I can read last years poem. Have a wonderful Christmas, and a safe New Year! Glynn
