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:


Comment from destroyerj:

Lots of red lines to parse!

Comment from gregstoll:

It's pretty neat that right now, 6/6 people selected Click2! as an option. (the only unanimous choice) Surely this can turn in to profit somehow?

Comment from taesmar:

Only if collecting underpants is involved.

Comment from fartingmonkey:

For what its worth (probably nothing) the drop box extends past the frame on some LJ themes..for instance go to my LJ and hit friends..its borked on mine.

Comment from abstractseaweed:

Also interesting is that nobody selected only one option. While radio buttons strictly enforce at most one option, it appears that checkboxes implicitly suggest at least two.

Comment from abstractseaweed:

This was fun! I vote "yea" on interactive journal posts.

Comment from djedi:

True, interactive stuff is fun. Raids in wow are much more fun when we have lots of votes. :)
