Body in California/Heart in Ha...
'Twas the Night Before Christmas, with lights all a-glo,
And outside the window it’s starting to snow.
Now that Pandora and Mag’s have the decorating done,
They join Jenny by the chimney where the stockings are hung.

Gameboomers are nestled around their computers,
With puzzles, adventures, role-playing and shooters.
The Name the Game thread keeps Becky up nights,
Coming up with new titles both clever and bright.

L4L turns her back and the group runs amuck,
Nightowl7 goes for coffee while a clue is thought up.
LadyK soon arrives with a poem as a clue,
Chrissie guesses Agon, Joan Syberia II.

Zookeeper says URU, wysewoman Alida,
Chief said Niburu, tinagoss Tunguska.
Granny’s been in a maze, has been there 8 years,
I could have sworn my directions were perfectly clear.

Maggie57 spoke up, said I know this sounds thick,
But are any of these games going to be point and click?
Catbelly, Doc Russ and Tristy lost games and were harried,
Alkis is nervous, he’s just gotten married.

Out on the front porch there arose a great din,
'Tis the group from The Darkside, they want to come in.
Friedmonky’s in front with nickie in tow,
Is Ingie here yet they both wanted to know?

Sig asked the darksiders what keeps you enthralled,
The games on your hard drive that are always installed.
Morrowind’s the one said oldman and Pantheon,
For Yankee Clipper and Trail-Mystic, it’s Oblivion.

Hagatha keeps Baulders Gate 1 and 2,
Johnboy - American McGee, hey what can you do?
Oblivion has looney and TLC in it’s grip,
Kazzmo thinks Pathologic just might do the trick.

There’s Exhalt2him and Bigmomma1,
Roaming ‘round Morrowind, having such fun.
Madge the Mage is ready to help save the day,
But she’s waiting for flotsam to come out and play.

Babyblair and smiley are vampire playing,
Barb’s playing Gothic or would help with the slaying.
Jeanne’s a newbie playing NWN Two,
Pib and Debra are there to explain what to do.

Pokey and Rowen are playing Gothic 3,
So is PeggyG, PeggyH and also lindy.
VHLMagic will play as soon as she’s done,
And Drizzt can’t wait to join in the fun.

The light’s on the tree aren’t working quite right,
They flash off and on, it’s a terrible sight.
What’s causing the problem we’d all like to know,
We asked Jenny100 and the great Inferno.

They both strolled on over to take a look-see,
Along with 2 Roberts and InlandAZ.
Do you think it’s the wattage that’s causing the glitch?
It might be a RAM or a video hitch.

Dosbox might work, Metzo said I suppose,
The lights after all were made prior to windows.
After much thinking and a few little tweaks,
They got them to work, praise be for the geeks.

Gymcandy1 and the gang from the diner,
Are gathered together right there by the fire.
Sassyladi hummed songs from her favorite CD,
John Denver & The Muppets came from AngieB.

Littlegingerwizard and Scarlett then gave us a fright,
And we all sat around waiting word about Tyke.
She finally appeared with some beautiful flowers,
Sent with prayers, lots of love and great healing powers.

Then into the room in her sweatshirt she came,
And Midge whistled, and shouted and called us by name,

Ms Mercury, Texaslady, Browneyedtigre and Rose,
Mugsy, Gilligan and Dineke, get up on your toes.
Draclvr, luv2travel, we all have a job,
Find Moonbeam, 3dobermans and get Billybob.

Auntiegram and LeeAna, threads you come too,
Marian, Homer6 and Mad bring along BettyLou.
Sorta Blonde and Retired, grab Kaki’s Sister,
Yell for Darleen2003, we don’t want to miss her.

On Jhart, Re and Rushes, on Mary and Bea,
Joanie39 and flutist get away from the tree.
Olderon’s knitting but exercising where it’s at,
Though I heard Tigger mutter, she’d rather be fat.

Urban Worrier asked for gifts for someone quite special,
But the gifts are a secret, make sure you don’t tell her.
Jema gave fig custard, Satine brought a quarter,
Esube - lemon cream, Redz said Junk was in order.

A glasshouse isn’t right, Stitchman supposes,
With Cue’s galumpki and Funlcake’s roses.
Sherlock just wasn’t sure how the L followed N,
JennyP is a blonde so she didn’t understand.

DoreenS brought frosting and said it would work,
But Koala made the day when he brought James T. Kirk.
I happen to know the special lady as well,
So I brought her a box filled with White Zinfendel.

Curly told Santa jokes there in the corner,
Sondi said “none. All candles burn shorter”
WinstonSmith came up with “camel ye faithful”,
Croaker sang “missletoe”, Tusse said “rapping paper”.

A trophy is waiting is it JohnnyK’s or GEES?
Is it DocPaul’s, annette’s or demonsthenes?
BeaSong’s, larlar’s ,mineminemine or fildil’s?
Nope the squiggle belongs to our own JimboBell.

Rick, Manxman, Treval, fitter and Twizgy,
May you have enough puzzles to make you quite dizzy.
Milee10, Cathy1 hope your shopping is done,
Winfrey and Catsmom looks like you had fun.

Dudemom got a new job, kjos Runaway2,
Carrie got Time Stand Still, Kaylalovesred got one too.
Sir Dave and Malestrom, caylin and Greyfuss,
I want you to know that we’re glad you’re here with us.

Mikael, Sassafras, Gremlin, sierramindy,
Dragonuk, dragonseyes, DBK, foofoobunny,
Crispto, orchgamer, annie, Nanjoan, Darlene,
May the great elf of BAAGS bring the games of your dreams.

Susie, Geo and hugh, blondie_bc and same,
Nora Charles, Ahuber glad you came here to game.
And I cannot forget Jan, Laura and Dee.
You guys are dear friends and always will be.

In my Gameboomers sweatshirt, with my Gameboomers mug,
I drink a toast to you all and send a virtural hug.
Off goes my computer and out go the lights,
And wish you all Merry Christmas, lots of love, and good night.

AWESOME! thumbsup And to name all of us and remember the topics we have discussed thru the past year puts us "old folk" with some memory lapses now and then to shame, laugh I was somewhat dejected to think you would not be able to do this for us this year, and understood that time constraints of real life can make changes we don't wish or ask for. To have such an endeavor pop in on MY real life just now has made me feel so good smile and I cannot think how to thank you for your artistic presentation in the midst of everything you are trying to 'muddle' your way thru. Thank you so much thanks You are the BEST! Here is wishing you Happy Holidays and Peace to you and yours <img border="0" alt="[holidays]" title="" src="graemlins/holidays.gif" />
