**The Twelve Days of X-Mas 2008**

On the twelfth day of X-Mas

my blogger gave to me

a pound of cunning,

another vendor hyping,

blog posts worth keeping,

l’il hampsters dancing,

thoughts for a shilling,

strategies for winning,

tactics for saving,

five golden rings,

four little words,

tri-focal lens,

two boxing gloves

and a lesson in strategy.
