"Twas the night Before Christmas - 2009 - 12/14/09 09:44 PM

‘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.
Mary, Cathy1, Darlene2003,
Homer6 and Leeana are there by the tree.

When out of the blue Cherie brought up careers,
Wondered what people did when they’re not sitting here.
MsMercury, 3 dobermans are retired you see,
A social worker is what GBC used to be.

SpaceQuestFan and venus both are in sales,
luv2travel’s an agent with stories to tell.
Retired teachers are flutist, BeaSong, SortaBlonde,
Hawka, Lotus and connie, professional moms.

L4L is a dog mom, BettyLou was a cook,
Darlene a psychotherapist who could write a book.
Auntiegram was a nurse, Reenie landscape architect,
Karsten’s looking for a job, hasn’t found one quite yet.

At the bar’s a discussion of battle techniques,
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,
Maggie57’s still looking for her sabertooth tiger.
Moondancer and gremlin in Risen dug graves,
Pokey enjoyed it so much she gave it much praise.

Anne2, Debra and kazzmo are immursed in the lore,
With Demoshtenes, Sherryah flying dragons galore.
Kaki’s Sister just thinks RPGs are plain fun,
And hagatha is back in Divinity One.

Nanjoan just received Divine Divinity II,
It’s just not that good which makes oldman quite blue.
Sig Segorn and Smiley and of course Marian,
Are at a table discussing Kings Bounty the Legend.

Carla’s been busy tracking down gaming news,
Drizzt, Trail Mystic and chief search the net for the clues.
Jenny100, Draclvr, InlandAZ,
Have Windows 7 to keep them as busy as bees.

Pandora stopped in she’d been doing some gardening,
With Soot, Urban Worrier and puzzles mind boggling.
Redz, JimboBell, zookeeper, Hawkeye and cue,
curly, Jema and Rushes all know what to do.

Scarlet Dragon came up with another great squiggle,
The stories about which made all of us giggle.
From PeimJi, manxman, DoreenS, LadyK,
katbear50, OrleansBelle, cyrus, butterflybabe.

Starlightmoon, sierramindy, ShyTy, JennyP,
Drmojo, Koala, Lex and blondiebc,
lexxy, Chaos, meryl and skeeterUK,
jhart, richiesbabe have a wonderful day.

FloNS, Raylinstephens, fildil and Winfrey,
Horsedancer, NYLady, FloNS, Joanie and lindy,
Guybrush, acornia, kjos, Salar of Myst,
May you get all the games BFG-guy has on his list.

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,

syd

Having such a colorful and talented group of Boomers to work with, it must be great fun to integrate them into a very warm and personal Christmas poem. The difficult task is greatly appreciated by all of us. Thank you Syd. :holidays:
