Casey Hampton (caseyhampton) | 652 comments I don't have time to finish this list, help me out?
I couldn't find if anyone had done this kind of post before. I hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes. Just thought this might be fun.

On the first day of awesome Sword&Laser gave to we:
* Felicia Day singin' "Green Sleeves"

On the second day of awesome Sword&Laser gave to we:
* No Abrams Star Trek
And Felicia Day singin' "Green Sleeves"

On the third day of awesome Sword&Laser gave to we:
* Less early Lemmers
No Abrams Star Trek
And Felicia Day singin' "Green Sleeves"

On the forth day of awesome Sword&Laser gave to we:
* More Patrick Rothfuss
Less early Lemmers
No Abrams Star Trek
And Felicia Day singin' "Green Sleeves"


Edited for sake of metre.
And while I may think Felicia Day reading Walt Whitman's "Song Of Myself" would be Awesome (and it would) I needed a smoother first line.


SporadicReviews.com (Kevin Bayer) (SporadicReviews) | 410 comments Fun. I don't think the Felicia Day line fits though. Maybe "And Felicia Day reading to us."

On the Fifth Day of Awesome Sword&Laser gave to we:
*FIIIIIIIIIVE Iron Thrones!

David(LA,CA) (DavidScharf) | 327 comments Jumping to the end just because it would work so well...

On the twelfth day of awsome, Sword & Laser gave to me: Twelve novels read...

Francis      x | 43 comments Just read terry Pratchett - the Disc World.
Hope you are good for the Hogfather.

Casey Hampton (caseyhampton) | 652 comments Hmmmm. I may have to revise.
What about this for the first day?

On the first day of awesome Sword&Laser gave to we:
* A Pan Galactic Gargle Bla—ster


Maybe this would work better for the anchor instead of Felicia but then we must find an alternative activity and position for her. Wow, I didn't intend for that to sound so suggestive.... Sorry? :)

I'm also thinking of
On the eleventh day of awesome Sword&Laser gave to we:
* Eleven barrels of pipe weed

Perhaps Belmont could swing a Bat'leth
Merritt could be a Fremen

Hmmm, I must ponder a while longer.

Casey Hampton (caseyhampton) | 652 comments Thus far:
On the eleventh day of Awesome Sword&Laser gave to we:
* Eleven barrels of Pipeweed
Ten angry Fremen
Felicia cause she's groovy — sorry I like Simon and Garfunkel's "The 59th Street Bridge Song"
Merritt dressed up as Ant-Man
Belmont on a dragon
Nick & Scalzi hugging
FIIIIIIIIIVE Iron Thrones!
More Patrick Rothfuss
Less early Lemmers
Wheaton's Just A Geek
And our very own Antho—lo—gy

Note:
The Ant-Man reference is to make George R R Martin a happy camper since during his interview he wanted to know "where's Ant-Man."


SporadicReviews.com (Kevin Bayer) (SporadicReviews) | 410 comments I'd love to hear it recorded. T&V should sing on the audio podcast.

Oh I like this idea!

Maybe Tom and Veronica could do something like this?

Casey Hampton (caseyhampton) | 652 comments Not sure how well this went over, some might say like a led balloon but here's what I think ought be the twelve days...

On the twelfth day of Awesome Sword&Laser gave to we:
Aaron's righteous Whiteboards
Eleventy barrels of Pipeweed
Ten frazzled Fremen
Felicia cause she's groovy
Merritt dressed as Ant-Man
Belmont trots a dragon
Nick & Scalzi hugging
FIIIIIIIIIVE Iron Thrones!
More Patrick Rothfuss
Less early Lemmers
Wheaton's Just A Geek
And our very own Antho—lo—gy


End Notes:
1. The Felicia because she's groovy bit is becauseI like Simon and Garfunkel's "The 59th Street Bridge Song"

2. The Ant-Man reference is to make George R R Martin a happy camper since during his interview he wanted to know "where's Ant-Man."
