VT Night before Christmas
'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the place, the aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and mace. The stockings were hung by Sir Geoff and his mare in hope that old Santa has some change to spare The children of members were snug in their beds, while Dumpy and Inga were scratching their heads. Acore in her kerchief and Daarth in his cap Had settled for grog and a flagon of sack When out in the forum there arose such a clatter It was Berni and Eddie...now WHAT is the matter?? Away to the window Roz flew like a flash, Hoping for Bryant and some ready cas
'The stockings were hung by Sir Geoff and his Mare?' Oh, Darby, or Darby you know that's not fair! What about Rudolph, stuck up in that tree? I'm sure I just heard him mutter "No presents for me?"
And what about King G at home in La, And others all heading away? All bidding in Auctions they're hoping to win, Perhaps meeting with Kiwi for Turkey and Gin?
And starting from midnight till morning sunshine Inga & Carmen will drink bottles of wine
his eye to the telescope our Darby looked out through the swirling of snow on the Christmas eve night till at last he gave out one almighty cheer Its good old St Nick.... at last.... he is here
but then, what a shock ! it made him unsteady ! for there in the Sleigh there was Berni and Eddie ! they carried him off to the Dumpymotel for mince pies, plum pudding and crackers as well
the mulled wine was strong and it went to Daves head he decided to switch to the whisky instead then things all began to get rather blurry was that Eddie atop the tree dressed as a fairy ?
as the whisky took hold and the room spun around the policemen arrived and took the sleigh to the pound then Santa turned up, and boy ! was he mad he said ` theres no presents because you`ve all been bad`
the naughty VTers all begged on their knees and because it was Christmas, Santa listened to their pleas so he sprinkled the fairy dust, all glittery and red and then Dave woke with a start ! he`d been dreaming in bed
what was that strange shape in Santas red sack ? when he opens it up, my goodness its Craic ! and whats in the stocking dangling there at the hearth Quick, lets unwrap it, oh lovely, its Daarth With all of that wine and the laughing and drinking, Mariya joined in and forgot what she's thinking. Her eyes, how they twinkled, her spirit how merry! Her dumplings were cheese-filled and otherwise scary.
from under the tree there came sounds like groaning inspection revealed it was Rudolph still moaning Im out in the cold again, he said, oh f&!@ #t but we found his head was stuck in the ice bucket
so we dried him off and he put on a Beret [!] and he sipped at his drink, a brandy [ with cherry ] he nibbled at the cake till it was all gone there wasnt a crumb left for Eddie101
On Berni, On Eddie, On Rachel and all... Now dash away, crash away smash away! LOL! To the top of the ratings, to the top of the list Drink snowballs and mulled wine...enough to get P****d! The snow on the roof of the Dumpy Motel Was so icy and slippery that Santa's sleigh fell. Matcrazy and Herzog had scooped up the gifts, The sleigh and the reindeer were buried in drifts.
Though they set of then to deliver the gifts they had to keep stopping to take lots of pics but they plodded on through the snowstorms cold rages each was thinking of how this would make really good pages Hooray, here?s the sleigh, its got a new driver the man at the reigns is our friend Tropicdiver its lucky he?s here to help because you see without him `twill be Easter before they get to Kiwi
VT Night part II
Eddie and Berni were discussing the Christmas crackers, so long as there's no curly fish in Bernis, was all that mattered. Eddie didn't want a paper hat perched on her big hair, Berni shouts, but everyone's wearing them, that's just not fair!. We all sat discussing the dinner with Turkey and stuffing, but as usual, Berni and Eddie got onto topics like muffin. You'll get us deleted, cried the voices from the aisles, especially when we started on Travelinx's piles. Inga was guzzling the Vodka down by the glass, I have never seen a little fish drink so fast! Daarth was getting drunker, swigging Whiskey, just single Malt. he started to slur, it wasn't me, it's not my fault. Our Jen was reciting Haiku, and we all thought of Rosie, let's hope she comes back to the forums, and makes it all cosy. Ivan was teaching his granny to suck eggs, that's his favourite saying, since he's known Ed. G was getting flabbergasted, at all of this noise, behave VT children or I'll take away your toys! . We all tried to be quiet, like little church Mice, but along came more drinks and buckets of ice!
Oh Berni and Eddie behave yourselves, dears!, And Darby and Rach, go fetch some more beers. It's almost the time for Rudolph and Santa To deliver the presents from The Pole to Atlanta. Now if you've been good, and not mentioned 'Auction', A note to Saint Nick might bring you good fortune. But if you've bee naughty and criticized here, All I can say is Better Luck Next Year, Ho ho ho!!
Geoff Wright and Phildeni, the old geezers from the Muppets box, were bemoaning the fact of more knickers and socks. Derby and Dumpy were searching for some Sherry, they had heard that it made Carmen rather merry.
Alza and Ddvito came in and were discussing Sean Connery, they wanted to smooch him and get naughty,Mistleto wasn't obligatory. Rachel had good news, father christmas had gotten rid of her pains, no more crappy neighbours next door, she's going to live in Spain
behave ? me and Eddie ? perhaps when we`re old, not yet, we`re not ready ! where would you all be without us poking fun ? lets be very merry, all of us every one !
Now your getting personal, Eddie my Gal, And I used to believe that you and I were pals, Any more of this, and I'm sorry, that's your lot, I'll be round in a jiffy to block off your 'pot'
Then you'll be tearful, and moaning your'e sad, It'll be your own fault for being so bad! What will you do then? Whatever to do? 'Cause then Santa won't be climbing your chimney Flue.
We ate and we drank till we were all full and played party games with Madasabull then after when we thought all our guests were gone there snoring in the corner was Shashasharon
So the party restarted and we all had a dance who?s doing the twist ? oh its just Vivalafrance now someone is going over there to hug her I don?t believe it !! its old Sourbugger !
Acore awoke from the noise on the roof, Looked over at Daarth and was very aloof. Oh MY! How did you get here, what are you doing with me? She arose from the bed and she started to flee.
She turned at the door and started to plea "Why me, why me, why not another VT?" Then there was a crash, quite a big clatter She ran from the room to see what was the matter. Poor Daarth looked aflux there in his night cap Said,"I just settled here for a long winters nap!" He jumped from the bed hoping Santa was there. To his dismay, he found only a single reindeer. Now Acore was steaming, her head was afire Then said "Leave now, I wish to retire!" Daarth climbed atop Vixen held tight on his reins "Now, now, Acore you should not complain" Acore, now angry did hold the door open Daarth sitting there on the deer now a smokin' "Get out, get out, get out of my sight, Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"
I'm sorry dear Geoff, that I spelt your name wrong, I haven't been drinking, it's only Coffee, but strong. Please don't block up my flue, I might need it just then, otherwise it's knickers to you, and I'll make sure I peed them!
VT Night part III
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the site Not a creature was stirring, not even Geoff Wright The threads were adorned with racy info. Hoping that Giampiero would not go commando.
Europe VT was nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of secret crushes danced in their heads; Eddie in her nightshirt, dreaming of Reno- I sit at my screen reading ?those in the know?
When out of the speakers there came such a noise, I jumped full well knowing it must be the boys. Away to the threads I clicked like a flash, Tore open the forum and immediately saw the clash.
Anchovy56, Deus Ultima, and Jeff too Flexing their off beat wit in a manner a bit blue When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a closed minded newbie, whose not used to us here
With a blustry temper, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be someone thick More rapid than eagles his diatribe came, And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name
"Now, Dennis! now, Ultima! now, Seabiscuit and Darby! On, Gwilym! on Bugger! on, Anchovy! Get out of the gutter! Get out of the trash! Or you?ll soon have the women talking so brash
As members join and build their pages with pics, And fill their experiences and opinions in the tips So up to the occasion the VT boys mustered And turned their attention to the noob who blustered,
And then, in a twinkling, I saw in print quick The new voice squelched by the old-timers right click. Craic, Berni, Alza, and Eddie came in The verbal bloodbath was about to begin
But Eddie was there as quick at light, come here you varmind, come out and fight!. I'll hit you with my handbag, Berni will hit you with glee, Inga will bite you, we'll make you flee! Denise will soon be here, she'll give you what for, never come back you idiot, don't darken our doors
Politics and religion and culture is fine But artwork and lit. discussions will make you go blind. We all get along here, get over yourself fast; Except for one and we humor his large a** Jen?s eyes sparkled daggers, her fingers dripped wit, I grinned evilly and dyslexic fingers typed sh^% Someone caught on and wrote something more racy, ViveLeFrance yelled ?names DenisE not Densey?
The newbie bit his tongue he held tight in his teeth, And his ears were burning from the backlash of his speech He offered a broad apology and a squeak of defeat, that sounded sincere, but not quite that complete To the top of the ridicule list! to the top you go! You must pay your dues you lout, fink and toad.
As Paul2001 builds great pages like Globetrotter That rival the top 10 list of VT envy Bloggers So up to the occasion the thread posters flew With solidarity that gov?ments wish they knew We were cheery and united, a right jolly thread stance I laughed when I saw the noob squirm with the advance A wink of Jen?s eye and a twist of Jeff?s head, Soon gave me to know the newbie had lots to dread With tail between legs and head hung down low, the battered little wimp had nowhere to go. Sullen and beaten, his face was a pic, that's how we make people feel who are sick. The VTers welcome with arms open wide new members with travel tips and nothing to hide who share pages and forum chat, though often mocking the others get a socking, not a Christmas stocking
Berni is sat writing her Christmas list hoping that last night ddevito didn?t get too p****d wishing she could send gifts out to you one and all to say thanks for the friendship, fun and laughs most of all
Inga is drunk, and lying on the table Tried to get up, was completely unable Darby eats pumpkin, tries to get over The terrible, dreadful and awful hangover Eddie is fresh and as usual, in pink riding her tricycle, with Jean of wourse *wink* Carmen is dancing flamenco& la bamba Clicks castanets and crying "caramba" Zdenka took ski, jumped from the roof, fell & got bumping She just forgot that she's not in Finland at ski-jumping Who's there, shouting more for an hour? Nastya, catwoman climbed on Eiffel Tower Canadian beauty with Ukrainian roots Sending us greeting from Paris, Saluuuut!
VT Night part IV
Along came the carole singers, in fur trimmed red hoods all led in the chorus by our Nepalgoods so we invited them in for cookies and cocoa brewed by Carnation and her man Tedrico
we decorated the tree with many a bow all expertly knotted by Uravelau to put Eddie on top there?s only one man wh?`ll risk it so she?s placed on the tree by our mate Seabiscuit
lets all raise our glasses, but no wine left, I wish that Inga and Anchovy didn?t both drink like fish I thought we?d have enough with 24 gallon quick go get some more.... your turn to go Hailun
And nothing to eat, we're dying of starvation we ate all the cakes baked by Carnation but what's just a little pastry for such a big crowd! We're crying and yawning all, very loud. Where's Chris balfor ? with his famous *grin* ? Ah yes,,,busy.. right, cooking for Danish Queen!
The staff at VT although it is hard are saving this ode to use in their Christmas card we wont get royalties, but we wont complain cos we?d just be told to read `terms of agreement` again Aw, thank you dearest Berni, that's really nice to know, I've had a pain in the @ss today already, what a blasted show!. I was likened to that weirdo Divine, by someone who's not even a friend, so I told him what I thought of him, and then asked G to put it to an end
Hey people, wake up, stop snoring and flopping, Beware of RobDavis and his "photoshopping" He'll put on on picture and then will blackmail G will be tricicling in pink with fish tail
This is something that I would like to see, it would tickle the pink right out of my. No ,more asses for G to enoy whilst he's playing with his new toy!
Ouff, what a thunder, sifter and riddle? Picking my ears and brain as a needle Even the wine poured out of my throat Who's this? Ah yes! Daarth in his boat. Sailing in Seine with gin in the fridge searching for malt and crashing Paris bridges
Then loud explosion as if after the bombe. What's this ? Beret fell in Paris catacomb - Robert, what happened to you? Oh-la-la! The answer we hear just : blah blah blah blah!!! Old daarth he is baffled, why was he not here The others are riming and drinking some beer
VT Night part V
Twas the night before Chaka Khan when all through the net all the VT'ers were trying see how naughty they could get. They met in a great hall all decked with decadence and the room was filled with no scent of sense. Stuffing stockings while they were worn was not how you mother saw you when you were born....I have to go to lunch...finish please
Inga was drinking wine Having chilled it just right, Was watching for reindeer On this starry night.
Nykaenen is here also, Joining Inga with wine While gazing over the Danube Enjoying the time.
Horscheck and Littlebear Also partake of the treats, With one little cork screw, It?ý a Budapest meet.
Matcrazy roams over Europe With cases of beer A brew made in Poland With Tychy he spreads cheer
Last years goodies disappeared So she watches through the night And when thereýs a rustle Eddieýs handbag give elves a sore fright.
Daarth and his sailboat Going wherever they please Just canýt wait to see Santa Land his sleigh on the seas.
And far from her home, Braving pirates and plunder Bettyboo is still living In the far lands down under.
And still further on, On the mainland itself Lives jolly Craic, Our Australian elf.
Then traveling east For thousands of miles, Geisha Girl is found Sporting California style.
Out on the beach In warm San Diego air Giampiero is found Hoping this year for hair.
On the edge of the Pond Much further east, Balfor is cooking Nothing quite like a feast!
The globe weýve encircled With food, wine and friends. Another year passes, While a new one begins.
