Body in California/Heart in Ha...
‘Twas the night before Christmas and what do you know,
At the boomers white house it’s beginning to snow.
Hanksdog hung our game lists by the chimney with care,
He heard that the postman soon would be there.

We boomers encircled our big Christmas tree,
With cups of Tea Master Derman’s most proper brit tea.
Esube, Sherlock and Redz sang Christmas songs in their glory,
And we all settled down for this year’s boomer stories.

Before we got started a knock on the door,
Got Puzzlewoman and housewife back up off the floor.
Scarlett asked if we’d take special care of her mum,
Tyke’s shy and is looking for folks that are fun.

Another knock at the door, Marian yelled out “who is it?”
“Tis kwbridge, Singer and fov, can we come for a visit?”
Skippidy, Valerie R and connie asked “may we come in too”?
Friedmonky told them “you bet, if you don’t mind a zoo”.

Then out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
Trail Mystic flew from his home planet to see what was the matter.
Carmen looked out the door, saw what’s making the din,
TLC said “looks like new boomers about to move in”.

Betty Lou welcomed them in, Melia looked ‘round and said “gee”.
Doris asked where they came from, Vertex said “TAC.”
danyboy, bkrytr, Milee10 and mjartisian, no more need you roam,
Blsbet, Maggie, Mbari and Katsmom, glad you found a new home.

Tigger stood up and said “good grief we’ve been busy”,
Granny and Bristol told jokes, funlcake laughed herself silly.
Linds’ daughter played basketball, Rayy’s is making her crazy,
Mac_attack started working, no more time to be lazy.

Oh Solver, metzomagic, rice burner and Mugsy,
Come drizzt, trudysgarden, Billybob, texaslady.
I was farenapped at the airport, Inferno did shout,
Homer6 and bj want her with them next time they go out.

"Which goddess are you?" bluebonnet piped up
Looney4labs took the test, turns out she’s a mutt.
Rae said she’s everyone, must have multiple personalities
Snowmoon and msvz said they both were Persephone.

LadyKestrel and colpet said they were Athena,
Salar of Mystwas Hestia and Josie was Hera.
Blondie_bc and AngieB turned out to both be Artemis,
Audrey was Aphrodite, walt’s feminine side was Hermes.

I’ve just become settled karvic said to the crowd
Teddo yells out “congrats”, said you ought to be proud.
Re didn’t mind being “shy” but said “lost” is too sad,
Wait ‘till you’re addicted said oldman’s hat wearing Mad.

Jen in Chgo then told us a harrowing tale,
Of games, and a mom, shelf and concrete stairwell.
Glynn wondered if Outcast, cast out other games,
BrownEyedTigre said Forever World of course was to blame.

Ingie asked if it was homicide or simply game slaughter,
Mary felt bad for mom knitting CD cozies for daughter.
Lucca offered condolences hopes the perpetrator will fry,
Threads the prosecuting attorney, said she’d certainly try.

Looney thinks that an exorcism of FW is needed,
Lex said a book handling terrorists should always be heeded.
A call went out for a jury, burpee said I’ll do that,
Flutist volunteered Amber, even though she hates cats.

Nolalou announced that in March he’s Hawaii bound,
Hawkavonpuka and Susie vowed to show him around.
Rainbowlady got married, Alaska moved to guess where,
Jill’s back from Australia where she hadn’t a care.

Desertlilac’s a teacher, Gran and Ang are both moms,
AHuber’s an engineer bent on world domination.
Emeraldawn, Andy and Bevlee are retired as if,
Ssgamer does archery, PapaTerry a Sheriff.

Johnboy asked who has all of the five worst adventure games,
Hammer has Zombieville and might not be the same.
Manxman, mignone have only The Scroll,
"Can you loose BAAG points for this?" they wanted to know.

Ladyve she has three, lagavulin owns none of these
Gamehound’s too choosy, Glenna – Orion Conspiracy.
Jenny100 and flotsam were in the first Scroll-A-Thon
No one else seemed to want to join in with the fun.

“How many games at one time have you bought?” Bonnie asked
“Twenty eight”, replied catsmom2, as the rest of us gasped.
When kazzmo sees games, the eyes start to spin,
Becky said “I’m the same, do you think we are twins”?

Daysleeper said seven is all I can say,
Fishook has a system, KarenNJ ‘s on ebay each day.
Bigmamma1 topped off at seventeen games,
Nickie nixed the Lear jet and is driving these days.

Gremlin, Leeana, Susie07 all played Nancy Drew,
Gsd played an old one – Dark Side of the Moon.
Moment of Silence for lkgregorio and same,
Mordock and Vrmpls2 hope that Sentinel came.

Sassafras and Nanjoan have finished Atlantis Revolution,
Aspen - Remedy, LenG wrote the solution.
Bryansmom’s finished Return to Mysterious Island,
But wysewoman's sad because she just can’t find it.

Pantheon’s in Baulder’s Gate while waiting for Oblivion.
Gimme played Lighthouse, dmtomchick Law & Order 3
DaveH’s trying to load Spell Force on good old XP.

Tami played Gothic, Dark Fall 2 creeped Annie out.
With all Uru’s jumping ces and Lspace wanted to shout.
To the busy game makers – Michael and Chris,
Lifestream and The Arrangement just did the trick.

Llewton’s Name the Game thread gave rise to three kins,
Bernard was laughing, Liz guessed Curse of Monkey Island.
Carolin Romancing the Stone, genf Myst Revelation,
Fitter- Case of the Crabs, ray guessed Runaway.

What’s the most anticipated game that you can’t wait to get?
Ladybug, Duck&Cover & Vizgoth hope Scratches gets here quick.
Sassy and Rain2 can’t wait for Myst IV,
UpTooLate, Demosthenes can’t wait for The Longest Journey 2 anymore.

SuMac and advgamer sure like Dark Fall 1,
JoanieS is a Thief fan, SpaceQuestFan Syberia.

Carlazacchia's stuck in Gooka in some kind of trap,

I hope that you all have a great Christmas season.

You can’t choose your family, but you can choose your friends,
And I’ve found a few here that I’ll love ‘till the end.
Bob, Marita and Jenny, Jan, Laura and Dee,
I’m glad that we’re friends, you mean so much to me.

I got quite nostalgic looking back through the years,
Remembering all the great people who’ve visited here.
So a toast to all boomers both present and past,
Here’s to love, to this board and to friendships that last.

Well, another year’s come and another year’s gone,
And another long Christmas poem‘s finally done.
I’ve got one more rhyme then I'll turn out the lights,
Merry Christmas GameBoomers, Peace on Earth, and 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.

That is absolutely fantastic.
I can not get over how well you did this poem.
It is such an awesome thing to do. You are very talented and gifted.
And all the verses, so many of them.
I write poems, but this is just indiscribable.
I appreciate it and may you be blessed this holiday season.

Syd, you make me breathless ... a work of dedication to say nothing of your skills.

My tummy tugs a bit when I read down all the names and see mine ... I'll bet a candy cane or two everyone else has the same feeling.

Oh wow, What can I say? Reading your poem made me feel warm and fuzzy all over. And to include my sweet Amber. She will be so pleased when I tell her.
But tell us Syd, just how long did it take you to write this?

Syd, my mind boggled at the prospect of your taking on the challenge of a poem this year what with all the new members, but somehow you managed it!

Thank you for taking the time to do this---I know you have a very busy life and schedule, and it is appreciated.

Happy Holidays. <img border="0" alt="[holidays]" title="" src="graemlins/holidays.gif" />

Syd, thank you for your time & effort on this fantabulous poem. I'm now completely in the Xmas spirit & only 5 days until <img border="0" alt="[santa]" title="" src="graemlins/santa.gif" /> comes! Whew. Just in the (Saint) Nick of time! You must be a Santa's Helper.

Now I just need to know, is the poem the nice or naughty list? eek

Many blessings this holiday season to all Boomers everywhere! :kiss:

Syd, every year this job must get more and more difficult as we become a larger community, but every year you manage to come up with another fantastic poem. Thank you for becoming part of the Christmas tradition. I just hope that you are going to have a wonderful Christmas after the pleasure you have given all of us

Ah shucks people - thanks for the thanks blush It's the least I can do for the greatest group of people ever assembled in one place at one time praise

As to how long this puppy took to write - not counting the two months of denial wink I would guess right around 60 hours give or take an hour or two laugh And I don't even want to think about next year eek

Merry Christmas everyone <img border="0" alt="[santa]" title="" src="graemlins/santa.gif" />

Syd, at the rate that GB is growing, next year maybe you'd better set aside 60 hours for denial and two months for the poem... lol
