Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary / Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore / While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a beeping / As of some one notifying, notifying me of things in store. / 'Tis some text message,' I muttered, 'keeping me awake and sore - / Only this, and nothing more.'

Ah, distinctly I remember it was six months since December, / And each separate bill and penny held their weight and I earned more. / Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow / From my games surcease of sorrow - sorrow for a backlog chore - / This year I would fend off Steam and all its sales, the sales galore.

Quoth Valve's Gaben, 'Nevermore.'
