And Now The Night Before Christmas!

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the net

Not a blogger was stirring, not even Zeba;

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

In hopes that Punk Chopsticks soon would be there;

Annie and Marion were nestled snug in their beds,

While visions of rhyme schemes danced in their heads;

And Shreya in her 'kerchief, and Jack in his cap,

Had just settled their blogs for a long winter's nap,

When out by the laptop there arose such a clatter,

Wander sprang from his bed to see what was the matter.

Away to the computer he flew like a sprite,

Tore open the browser and keyed up the site.

The moon background on the breast of the digital snow

Gave the lustre of mid-day to icons below,

When, what to his wandering eyes should appear,

But a brand new post about eight tiny reindeer

With a Chinese-Malaysian typist, so lively and quick,

He knew in a moment it must be Punk Chopsticks.


  1. LoL! This is so humorous and brilliantly penned with rhymes! Bravo! Merry Christmas, Ben :)

  2. Lol :P Lovely, we will sing this together :P

  3. Ha!

    And to all a good night!

  4. Ben you crack me up, you are a very interactive writer! Merry Christmas!

    Away from my laptop I flew with a clatter and Ben jumped up yelling "what's the matter? Is it Punk Chopsticks, or maybe raindeer causing that patter?
    "No dammit, I spilled coffee in my lap!" With a grumble and groan and the stomping of feet I stormed off to get out of these scalding pants when from the background I heard spoken oh so softly " merry fricken Christmas to you too...."

  5. LOL! You got that right. I've been sick as a dog for the past 3 days and am just now leaving my snuggly bed. Awesome rhyme, Ben Ditty. I hope Santa was good to you!!!! xoxo

  6. Shreya: Okay, you start first ;)

    Jack: Hope you're having a great holiday, Jack!

    Wander: Oo hoping that coffee wasn't too hot ;)

    Marion: Glad you're getting out of bed and enjoying the holiday :) Also, you got lots of presents.

  7. BEN! Hah. You ALWAYS make me smile with glee. Don't. It makes me look demented. Heh. Cash fan, yes. Et tu?


You've found your way inside my head and now there's no way out!
