The Night Before Christmas...more or less

"Twas the night before Christmas and all through the sphere
Not a blogger was strirring, they must be getting beer;
Their posts were all placed on their pages with care,
In hopes that new comments would soon be there;

Some of them were nestled all in their beds,
While visions of blog awards danced in their heads;
JM in her turtle jammies, and I in my cap,
Wrote today's posts, typed up in a snap;

When out on the web there arose such a clatter,
I had to check the monitor to see what was the matter;
Away to the desk, I waddled like a duck,
Tripped on a rug and screamed "Oh F***";

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
A shimmering list of blogs, I hold them so dear;
They always make me chuckle, or bring a tear to my eye,
Split a gut laughing, or just make me sigh;

There was Canadian Blogger Girl, with her yummy meat pie,
And Taurus still drooling, over the hott dentist guy;
Lyndylou and her shovel, fighting Scotland's big snows,
Wishing for a fireman, or maybe just a hose;

And then there was Barb, on the Carolina coast,
She gives us much love, but Bruce gets the most;
Bubbles is there, her banner so bright,
Her blog is a beauty, filled with color and light;

Becca at My Life, isn't feeling so well,
I gave her an award, because she's so swell;
Caterpillar for me, is a brand new find,
Can't wait to read more, to see what's on her mind;

ib is fretting, about being a good Dad,
I predict he'll be the best, a kid ever had;
Wit sharp as a rapier, I'm diggin' Mrs. Hyde,
Tough on the surface, all gooey inside;

Fighting Eric the Viking, our sweet Aussie lass,
Mynx will defeat him, because she's loaded with class;
Jess could be JM's step-mom, you know that it's true,
But damned if her hubs, didn't recover from the flu;

Cinderita is a thinker, so young yet so wise,
If they are a reflection of her soul, she must have beautiful eyes;
Hed is back in America, we're so glad she's here;
With this new chapter, I wish her a life full of good cheer;

With poopy and vulva and nipples in the air,
Sandra write's her blog, with an awesome kind of flair;
Miss Vicki nearly grounded, security man is so sad,
A little too drunk, or the wild mambo would have been had;

The Empress was honored, but on her parade one did poop,
Thank goodness Miss Poopy, has now flown the coop;
It's clear from SSW's posts, Mr. D gives her a tingle,
From her profile, she may have to remove "single";

I'm sure there's an awesome blog, that I somehow missed,
Please chalk it up to my old age, and not get pissed;
Of their posts and their comments, every blogger should be proud,
My sincere best wishes, to my wonderful blogger crowd!!!

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Very good, very good Little Charles Dickens...hahaha. This is priceless. I will treasure it always. Bruce will too but he won't admit it!

Bursts of Bubbles said...

Oh wow... that is just amazing and even more so that you didn't think that I don't celebrate Christmas so you won't include me.

Thank you so much dad, your the greatest.

Bursts of Bubbles said...

I forgot to thank you too JM since dad mentioned you helped him put this together. Big Christmas hugs, sherry and mince pies from England for you both.

Jumble Mash said...!!! I love it.

Farmers Wifey said...

At first I thought it was your clever wit and awesomely written poetry..but it really was that pic..of the fireman.....really it was..

Loved the part about the comments being there..umm that could be me!

Odie Langley said...

Very good today. Enjoyed it very much and hope you have a great upcoming week.

Dad said...

I'm happy to share the love with my JM but I must take the blame for this was a solo act...would have been much better if I'd had her input :-)

@JM...we'll have to do a tag-team poem for Valentine's Day :-)

@Barb...thanks...and I'm sure Bruce knows he's a lucky guy, even if you don't celebrate Christmas...there's still a night before :-)

@JM...thanks sweetheart

@Teresa...thanks and I look forward to getting to know you know what they talks ;-) Thanks for the praise

@caterpillar...thanks...I thought the caterpillar pic was cute

@Uninspired...thanks, and the same good wishes to you and your family you have any idea how long it's been since the last time I made a woman giddy ;-)

@Jimmy...welcome...I encourage you to check them out, there are some great ones.

@lyndylou...if I made you laugh, my day is complete!

@Farmer's Wifey...welcome...were you a Farmer's Daughter? I always wanted to run into one of them ;-) Glad you liked the pic and Welcome to my blog.

Dad said... should be a good, short week...JM and my other girls have conned me into havin Christmas on the 23rd....I'm such a sucker :-)

Jess said...

Oh my this was fabulous! I especially liked the part about me ;P

Darn Hubs' stubborn immune system!

This was really clever and fun!

Sandra said...

A shout-out! What a great Christmas gift! And how much time did you put into that poem, holy crap man, it was terrific!
Thank you for the compliment as well about the blind guys at the bar. I don't think they were blind as much as young. Other than the owner of the bar, I'm pretty sure I was the oldest person there!
But thanks :)
If I don't "see" you again before the holidays, have a great Christmas...although I plan on being around, I hope you will be too.

Dad said...

@Jess....well need to cut back on his vitamins or something :-) Glad you liked it.

Dad said..., you would intimidate the young guys with you vocabulary ;-) I worked on the poem 3 or 4 days...glad you liked it...everyone has been so good about reading my crap, I wanted to do something a little special. Hope y'all have a great Christmas.

LottieSpartacus said...

This is fantastic! Some people are way too talented!

Bursts of Bubbles said...

You've been quiet since writing this poem, I hope everythings ok :).

Dad said...

@Bruce...thanks and welcome

@Lottie...thank you...flattery will get you everything :-) sweet of you to ask...I'm touched...I'm fine just haven't had anything worth writing about and trying to get ready for Christmas.

Bursts of Bubbles said...

Dad sometimes what you think isn't worth reading about someone else will actually enjoy it. I guess like most of my friends your just run down, I'm so glad my festivals aren't so hectic... its just the cooking part that is. We don't have presents etc... which makes it easir but we do have clothes which makes it a pain for a lot of people have they have to have everything matching (shoes, jewellery, hair stuff....), not for me though I just use whats at home as we just about get one day off.

Mrs. Hyde said...

Hey, Dad! You stay the hell away from my gooey side! Haven't you gotten me into enough trouble? You're lucky I love you to pieces. ;)

Chief aka Dad said...

Mrs. Hyde...gooey is good :-)
