“We’ve put all of our talents into this new Website!”
Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, except me and my Apple mouse.
I was working on our website, sizing images with great care,
In hopes that the final copy from Torey soon would be there.
The rest of my team were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of jQuery danced in their heads.
With the wife in a bad mood, and I in my sweats,
I had just settled down for a long night at my desk.
When out from the driveway there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my chair to see what was the matter.
Away to the deck I flew like a flash,
Tore open the sliding door and tripped over the trash.
With the launch deadline approaching, and just a few days to go,
I had no time for interruptions, absolutely zero.
Then, what to my tired old eyes should appear,
But Torey and Rachel and Kyle, all here.
With a tall dark driver, in a hurry to leave,
I knew in a moment it must be Steve.
“To help finish this website,” they said why they came,
So I whistled and shouted and called the rest by name!
"Now Declan! Now, Vicmar! Now, Gail and Demi!
On, Kevin! On Vince! On Jacob and Henry!
Let’s start a Skype chat, and make a good plan!
If this thing’s not done before Christmas, you know what will hit the fan”
The site was a monster, that none could deny,
Hundreds of unique pages, and thousands of links to verify.
So everyone took a section and away we flew,
And I was taking a break, to put the coffee on brew.
Just then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I swallowed my coffee, and was turning around,
Down the chimney, St. Nicholas came with a bound.
“It’s not Christmas yet,” I told the old guy in red,
“You’re a week early,” I said as he was shaking his head.
“I’m here to help too,” Santa said with a grin,
“We can’t wait for Christmas, this project must end!”
He shook off the dust, and twinkled his eyes!
Then threw off his bag and said “I’ve brought a surprise!”
Out of that bag, ran dozens of elves,
Each with a Macbook, and a punch-list for themselves!
So away we all worked, this team of fifty or more,
As the wife kept sleeping, I could still hear her snore.
The website was becoming a real thing to see,
Things were happening so fast, it was just like a dream!
As we added the final touches, mobile to be exact,
The old guy cornered me so fast I couldn’t react!
“Now that your site’s done, with a lot of help from me,”
“Take some time off for Christmas, and your family.”
Then he sprang to his sleigh, and to the elves gave a whistle,
“Let’s get back to the north pole, we’ve spent enough time here in Bristol.”
“Kids need toys, and we’ve still got plenty to make,”
And it was about that time, I saw my wife was awake!
“Honey the site’s done, it’s a miracle”, I said!
“What are you talking about Robert, this thing’s gone to your head!”
Then I told her the story, of the team, the elves, and Santa,
She said “Come to bed honey, you’re going bananas.”
So I took her advice, and headed off to sleep,
I must have been dreaming after all, so not another peep.
But the next morning, when I sat down in my chair,
The site was all done, they must have really been there!
So here’s our gift to you, our clients, prospects and the like,
We’ve put all of our talents, into this new website!
With keywords and categories, done never as before,
And services and solutions and graphics galore.
A true team effort, and everyone had a part,
A real Christmas miracle, I knew in my heart.
Old Santa left his mark too, as he flew out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a Great Website!"
