Body in California/Heart in Ha...
‘Twas the night before Christmas and what do you know,
Outside of the window it’s starting to snow.
Pandora and MaG have been busy as bees,
Hanging tinsel and lights on the Gameboomer trees.

“Let’s check out the rooms of which there are many,
And see what the boomers are doing” said Jenny.
A walk down the hall, a turn to the right,
We arrive at Adventure, but the door is locked tight.

Rice Burner from Hints did suddenly appear,
With a walkthrough and codes to the rooms that are here.
Carla, Gremlin and Chief joined up for the tour,
Three knocks and a kick, that should open the door.

The door opened wide, Becky ushered us in,
sinotek asked a question that raised quite a din.
Culpa Innata ripped-off TLJ could this be?
Jenny100 said “nope, they’re both rip-offs of me”.

Metamorphium he thinks that this might be true,
raylinstephens said royalties just might be due.
nickie scratched at her head and wasn’t quite sure,
If game about underwear would appeal much to her.

While underwear has BubbaJake concerned just a bit,
ramona thinks the game might just be a classic.
“If the game is a rip off” said Darlene2003,
“Then please rip me off”, Sly One had to agree.

The Annual Twisty List flotsam did do,
One for the lightside and darksiders too.
Space Quest Fan was glad Beast Within rated so high,
Stupid Invaders got three votes, Johnboy wondered why.

Cranberry Sass of the name the game thread,
Is still going strong (thought by now it’d be dead).
dragonuk44 gave a clue with answers to come,
Rushes guessed Undercover: Operation Wintersun.

zookeeper guessed it might be Starsip Titanic,
The answer came back, that nope that’s not it.
Chrissie a terrible limerick did make,
And now the cranberry sass is a Regifted fruitcake.

reikidave asked the group what game they liked least,
PolloDiablo and old lady came up with Dead Reefs.
Moments of Silence was named by caylin,
Susie07’s torn : Conspiracies or Missing.

Penumba Overture is bad said TheHaze,
SallyMG likes them all if there isn’t a maze
orchgamer – Necronomicon, lsapce Next Life,
Darlene and Butcher don’t like Paradise.

Aretha and Martin Mystere could not get along,
wysewoman thinks Mystery of the Druids' a bomb.
For Barbarosso and Gillan it’s Forever Worlds,
upsydaisy : Evidence The Last Ritual.

Alright let’s hear favorites, we all must have some,
Sassafras spoke up with her fav, Sanitarium.
AquariaJade Last Express, Mary and cat they like Myst,
Raybries cried Azrael’s Tears with a sob and a sniff.

Beyond Time is special for our Betty Lou,
Ron.etti says Riven, oldmariner Gab 2.
Kraken Still Life, Koalanut Grim Fandango,
Blackstone Chronicles said catsmom is the way you should go.

Still Life, then Next Life, and now Still Life 2,
Can it get better than that? Merlin said, I ask you.
Cissy, judith and ces thinks it’s an awfully long wait,
Karsten’s looking forward to 2008.

FlyingDutchman42 reported “there’s gamebabes aplenty.
I hope Gus is back”. “Me too” said sierramindy.
Qadventuregames is excited, so’s GBC,
Taylor’s Mom wants to find out who the killer will be.

Inferno you’ve proven you’re gracious and fair,
Though a certain individual didn’t play square.
It pays to remember, in this I’m not wrong,
You might fool some of the people, but not us for long.

The Happy Home for Gamers built a Developer’s Wing,
Dedicated to gatorlaw (just seemed the right thing).
Most Gameboomers can say that “we knew her when”,
I have the privilege to call her my friend.

Six rights and six lefts then down to the cellar,
Where the Darksiders whisper, “come hither fine fellow.”
The monkyman leads, banana torch lights the way,
Down creeky stairs, past fairies, where vampyres play.

Space bar, hit space bar, mutters Melanie1,
As she battles her way through Oblivion.
hagatha gave up her vampire ways,
She’s Sheogarath now, so you all best behave.

fildil and VHL are both playing Loki,
Maggie57 is at level sixty.
Marian announced “there’s another Dungeon Lord”
She knew oldman couldn’t wait, since the first he adored.

Draclvr has stopped whining ‘cause The Witcher is here,
Milee10 and Drizzt did raise a great cheer.
We heard there’s two versions, one with much spice,
looney wasn’t all sure she had naughty or nice.

Mad is stuck in the swamp and may never come out,
Debra said Dr. Pepper and vodka will help you not pout.
rowen has Vista, and the game finally runs,
threads said by next Christmas she just might be done.

Nipomo just finished The Dark Brotherhood quest,
Poor Yankee Clipper can’t get the platform up yet.
Smiley456 and Atheen are still fine,
They’re entrenched in the Might and the Magic of IX.

Sig wanted some eggnog, burpee passed him a glass,
He received Gods: Land of Infinity and hopes it will last.
So to the darksiders we bid fond farewell,
May they find armor and weapons and a meteor spell.

Two lefts and three rights is the door to Mixed Bag,
With plenty of food and good friends to be had.
texaslady said welcome, ya’ll all come on in,
The coffee is hot, let the talkin’ begin.

The gang at Joe’s diner’s now snug as a bug,
After answering the call that Glynn needed a hug.
BrownEyedTigre took a trip down memory lane,
Back to the 70’s, good grief we looked lame.

Barrel furniture’s the thing that caused Renee to drool,
soot still has a jumpsuit in blueberry blue.
foofoobunny had flashbacks of hip hugger flares,
A ’74 Javelin solved Ahuber’s cares.

Barry called out for help, he just hit escape,
“I’m still sitting at work, did I make mistake?”
Cathy1 suggested shift, Dineke said to press home,
L4Labs said hit windows, that might cause you to roam.

“Did someone need help?” 3dobermans came on the run,
Trail almost ended existence, now how’s that for fun.
Sorta Blonde is still looking for the terminate key,
Celtic Lark just wants an alternate reality.

“Beam me up Scotty” Auntiegram said then looked stunned,
When JennyP hit the num lock and her fingers went numb.
Midge caught a virus, nasty thing was called WORK,
Bouv mama is retired but is still on alert.

Winfrey showed us the perfect toilet for women,
Lex thought that the gap was put there for aimin’.
Homer6 thought it could work if the aimer was sober,
Flutist said the idea had her laughing all over.

Kaki’s Sister said they’re expecting 10 inches of snow
Gilligan thought her roof was on fire, was just steam don’t you know.
Nightowl07 hates shopping almost more than winter,
My9rugrats is snowbound says the grinch as got to her.

TLC made BAAG Specialist, let’s tip our hats.
Connie and Mugsy both offered congrats.
5,000 posts Gimli said, wow I am impressed,
Hope you still hang around said Retired at Last.

Do you know Christmas lyrics, did you get them all right?
JoAmiga, Hawka, butterflybabe had to turn off the mike.
Carousal wrote a poem called “The Christmas Fairy”,
Dudemom’s tree topper’s a fish, now how’s that for scary?

So we continue, four lefts and three rights,
And arrive at the Garden of Puzzling Delights.
Tyke opens the doors, she’s smart as a tack ,
Says the rest of the geniuses are there in the back.

Urban Worrier’s party has presents so clever,
Redz brought margaritas, wished the best ever.
Curly brought champagne, cue walked in with toffee.
LadyK brought the Guiness, Stitchman, did you bring coffee?

Bernard brought cognac, Koala, Budweiser,
Maelstrom brought fondue, DoreenS brought a sweater.
Sherlock brought veggies, Jema Vitamin C,
NYLady a thermometer, Ccbomber, beef jerky.

BeaSong, Geo and croaker are discussing a squirrel,
JimboBell hears screeching whenever he turns.
Mineminemine and Satine know their Charlie Brown Christmas,
DocPaul said Toyota’s got a plan for fat kittens.

Crazy Billybob set out to find a new home,
And they all tried to guess at the states he did roam.
Funlcake said Wyoming, Sondi Nebraska,
MsMercury Colorado, manxman North Dakota.

Merry Christmas Leeana, lexxy and Bea,
Luv2travel and my dear friends, Ms Janners and Dee,
JoanieS, bkrytr and JohnnyK,
Joanie39, kwbridge and Re.

Jldcat, Auntykitkat52,
Exalthim2, Uncle Reg, owlluv and hugh,
Jude, lorryrose, moonbeam and sassiladi,
I hope that you’re visited by the little BAAGS fairy.

Liz thanks for the post, it is so nice to hear,
That you still want this poem after all of these years.
So I made up my list and checked it with care,
And there’s 173 boomers in there.

And so my dear boomers we come to the end,
Of another great year filled with family and friends.
So from my house to yours as our tree twinkles bright,
Merry Christmas to all, peace on earth and good night.

Love and a very :christmas:

syd

How the heck did you get so many boomers in that fabulous poem.
That must have taken an extremely long time. I look forward to your poems every year. Just thought I would say how fantabulous you are. Have a Merry Chritmas to you and yours. Your the best.
