Oooookay, let’s give this one more shot…

I was going to throw up my hands and write off the entire poll experience as a bad job…but have managed to find a decently reputable online-survey host and can’t quite resist the notion of trying again. So I’ve removed the possibly-glitchy LJ poll from the entry below and have created a brand-new one, using the same questions. This one is open to everybody, at the following link:

Please and thanks for participating. (Look at it this way: The sooner I get this out of my system, the sooner we get back to actual content.)

December, yes, I can see that. What is falling out there now – ie., March – is by family tradition ‘Charlie Brown snow’, a reference to the easily-animated fat little round flakes from the Christmas special…which, do I even have to point out, is all-December, all the time. Not once is March even mentioned, not even in passing. It is times like these that make me think we need a new special: You Lied to Me, Charlie Brown.

Sure, you laugh and tell me to relax and enjoy the cozy time indoors. Well, I have news for you, cupcake: more time indoors @ Shoe Central means more time to spend on this blog.
