Harm for the Holidays @ 09:01 am

Current Location: Muskrat Central
Current Music: "A Muppet Christmas Carol"

OK...the first idea for a Dork Tower Holiday Giveaway contest was the best.

Or at least, given our short space of time, it was the easiest to implement immediately, while still being clever.

Whoever writes the best Dork-Tower-related holiday haiku wins!

Thanks to pisica, who wins one of two Santa's Holiday Flyer ornaments, for the idea.



The second will go to the winner of the contest. Both will also receive Munchkin Christmas Cards, signed by me, which, yes, give you a special power in the game.

I may send out one or two extras cards, if there are other particularly clever entries.

Entries must be posted HERE, in this here Livejournal blog entry, by Friday, December 19, so I can get the ornaments and cards to them by Christmas day...

Write a Dork Tower
Haiku For the Holidays
That's all, folks. Huzzah!


****

Have a happy holiday season.

Louisa's cuteness demands it!

Dear Apple,

PLEASE get shiny new desktop towers out. Now. My current machine needs all the help it can get.

And by the way, I've read plenty of reviews of the new MacBook Pro 17" model. Can you start selling them anytime soon? What up with that?

Must go. My old machines are starting to gurgle again...

The twelve days of gaming!

(Link)
On the first day of
Christmas, my true love gave me
Munchkin and some dice.

On the second day
of Christmas my love gave me
Axis and Allies.

Third day comes along
and my lover gave to me
Chez Geek Expansions!

The fourth day will bring
some Dork Tower comic books
for me to devour.

On day number 5
she outdid herself real good...
Captain Kirk costume.

Days six and seven:
World of Warcraft expansion
and pre-paid game cards!

Eight days of Christmas
need eight arms to hold you tight:
Giant Stuffed Octopus!

Coming to day nine
collectors cards from a game
known as Pokemon.

Ten and eleven
these gifts are gamer's heaven
a new set of dice!

On day number twelve
she gave the best gift of all:
we play together!

Eight poems should be shot and

Gifting is for you
to say "I got this for you,"
Not "It must be mine!"
