Gnome Stew will be taking a holiday break starting December 24th, and returning to normal on January 5th. But don’t despair: There will be new articles appearing regularly while we’re on hiatus (in the form of us gnomes revisiting our favorite ones from the archives), with the possible exception of New Year’s Day (when we’ll all be so sloshed even WordPress won’t help us).
There are over 260 GMing articles on Gnome Stew to explore while we’re away/asleep/drunk, as well as hundreds and hundreds of excellent comments from GMs.
Today, the gnomes thought it would be fun to share a bit of each of our holidays with you. So here we are: seven out of nine members of the creative team behind Gnome Stew, who brought you those 260+ articles over the past seven months, in full-on Christmas mode. If pics from our other two
slackers deadline-challenged gnomes roll in, I’ll add them to this post.
Walt, with his lovely family. I can’t quite place the location, but there’s something familiar about it…
Troy, who wins for actually having GNOMES in his yard!
Scott, the “x-moose.”
Alysia, Charlie, myself, and our impending baby (this was our Christmas card photo this year).
Telas and his family — as Telas puts it, “This is on our Christmas cards, and shows the women in my life walking all over me (as usual).”
Patrick and his wife at a holiday party/in Patrick’s classic-car-themed Batcave.
…and John, who was forced into this Christmas sweater, possibly at gunpoint.
Thanks for reading the Stew, and Merry Christmas from all of us gnomes!
I believe those are elves, not gnomes? But I could be wrong. 😉 At any rate, tell Mickey and his little friend Merry Christmas!
You know, I was in my happy place until YOU CAME ALONG!
Just kidding. 😉 You’re right, they’re elves…but they should be gnomes.
Gak! I forgot that we moved this post up! I’ll get you a picture today. Like within a couple of hours. Really!
Happy Holidays, you whacky gnomes!
Gnomes … elves …. whatever. The little guys just won’t leave!
@lady2beetle: They are gnomes. They just have a lot of ranks in disguise and bluff!
@Troy E. Taylor: They also have high ranks in In-Law!
Not gnome in-laws ….. aaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrghhhhhhhh!
(Runs away screaming …)
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all who cook and/or eat the savory gnomestews.
Nice set of mugs. 🙂
Though, this made me think…any plans for a (occasional, or even one-off) GnomeCast so we can hear your angelic voices?
Okay. It ate the brackets.
Happy [Holiday Name Here]
Oddly enough, we’ve talked about doing a podcast — and a bit of audio has even been recorded. These past couple of months, time has been a constraint for many of the gnomes; I could see podcasting coming up again next year, especially if there’s interest among our readers.
Thanks for the Christmas wishes, all. 🙂
“impending baby”? That sounds so ominous!!
Baby of Sleep Slaying +15
BABY OF DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM is what I meant to say. 😉
Just kidding, of course — she’s going to be totally awesome.
The lack of a podcast is totally my fault. I’ve recorded interviews with some of the gnomes, and I am hoping that I can use the holidays to finish polishing those up for a 2009 release.
