|back in the cold

Thanksgiving was fun. (except for the flight down - it felt like my sinuses had acid in them for about an hour and that my ears were going to explode on the way down! Cold + airplane == bad) It was nice to see David's nephews again, although I didn't really feel like taking pictures so I didn't. Weather was good, too.
I actually got up early Friday morning for my first Black Friday experience. I was trying to get a Wii but came up short. (the gamestop in Victoria didn't get any...) The crowds in Target and Best Buy were amazing - at least a two hour wait to check out, I'd say. Luckily (I guess) I didn't have to :-)
I was in a bit of a mood last night after getting home so I worked on the LJ backup some more, and was able to make it spit out a calendar (which I had been dreading). Thank goodness! Oh, and here's a fake poll for example purposes when I get around to parsing them:
What do you think about radio buttons?
They seem pretty useful.
Frankly, the word "radio" is so yesterday.
I want to choose every option! Booo!
OK then, how about check boxes?
Now I'm confused; too many choices!
This could work, but I don't like the square shape. Someone could get cut on the edges!
Interesting. And drop-down boxes?
Ooh, this is more compact.
But what's the difference between this and radio buttons? Just that it's harder to see all the choices?
Is this poll done yet?
In 50 characters or less, explain your feeling on free-response polls.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how glad are you that this stupid poll is over?
