Of Turkeys And Blogs

Turkey Day
Turkey Day

In honor of the 2011 Blog Azeroth Thanksgiving event, I give you yet another reason why I should not be allowed to do anything creative when I’m away from my main computer.

And Paint Shop Pro.

(not an official entry– I want to play, but not the prizes! *grin*)

Of Turkeys and Blogs

Avast my wide and worldly friends, all scattered ‘cross the web
Please take a momentary pause, all rested, fully fed
The turkey’s gone, the dishes washed, leftovers packed away
What better time than now to thank those friends from whom we’ve strayed?

Foursome of DOOM

For all the blogs I’ve lurked on and the threads I’ve ever read
For all the tips and tricks I’ve learned and all the thanks unsaid
For all the times I chicken out of posting comments fair
I’ll take a moment now to sing of all the folks out there…

*attempts to figure out how on earth to pronounce some of the blogger’s names*
*realizes she can’t rhyme things she can’t pronounce*

To all the blogs of hunters, who taught me to turn off growl
To all the blogs of balance druids, who made my deeps more fowl
To all the blogs of shadow priests, that made the grind more fun
To all the blogs of warlocks, who taught me to shun the sun

Scenic Cows and Purple Doom Chickens

To all the blogs of death knights, who taught me not to rage
To all the blogs of warriors, who taught me to kill the mage
To all the blogs of shamans, who taught me lightning heals
To all the blogs of holy priests, who taught me when to shield

To all the blogs of bear tanks, who taught me how to dance
To all the blogs of mages, who froze me with a glance
To all the blogs of paladins, who taught me bubbles rock
To all the blogs of rouges, who taught me pvpers love stun locks

Troll Druid Bear Blue Yellow

To all the blogs of lorehounds, theorycrafters, and their kin
To all the Blogs of Azeroth and all their happy din
I thank you with each GCD, each level, each new skill
I thank you every time I die and every time I kill

I thank you every time I read, and every time I play
And now I stop to thank you on this great Thanksgiving Day! ๐Ÿ˜€

Well, okay, it’s the day after the day after Thanksgiving– but I was close! ^_~ *grin*

    What a beautiful post! I agree that it is tough to rhyme something you cannot pronounce. lol But the poem is wonderful, either way.

    The moral of this post: Even fail turkeys still make yummy leftover sammiches.

      Fail turkeys do indeed make nice sandwiches! ๐Ÿ˜€

      I was going to do something akin to the Animaniacs’ countries of the world song, but I hit the brick wall when I realized I might rhyme someone’s name wrong. Doh.

      Ah well, it was a lot of fun regardless, can’t wait to read all of the other posts I didn’t have time to catch whilst on the trip! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Druid Horsie is first on the chopping block as soon as NaNoWriMo is over! I figure he’ll be a great way to get my painting Muse back into gear after all the writing. ๐Ÿ˜€
