Today's Bridge: There was a bit of a disaster when I opened and Ken ran with it all the way to 5H missing not only the top two diamonds, but five hearts to the A-J-9 that were all in Bruce's hand. Whoops. But we were on top the rest of the time, and I was proud of an auction where Ken doubled Bruce's opening 1D bid, and with S A-x-x-x H K-10-x D K-x-x C Q-J-x or so, I bid a conservative 1S. A jump, in my mind, would have indicated more length than I had. Ken bid 2H, and I jumped straight to 3NT. It had to be played from my side of the table, as far as I could tell, but Ken's S J-x-x H A-J-9-x-x D Q C A-K-x-x would have held the day as declarer as well, I think. The queen held the opening diamond lead, so I crossed to my king of hearts, ran the ten to the queen and ace, and cashed three more hearts and four clubs, picking up the ace of spades along the way.

Today's Work: A bit disappointing - we got into several efforts that ultimately went nowhere, at least for the moment, and the one effort that did result in success turned out to be incompatible with computers that have already had our software installed on them, at least unless we find a way to clear out a lingering bit of the installation. This may involve reinstalling the old version just to have a file that the system really wants to be there.

My stomach has been hurting for a while, but I really wanted to do something with that eggplant while it was still edible, so I asked my guest to make eggplant parmesan and went back for seconds. It took a few bites to get used to the flavor, but it grew on me. I'm not sure whether I'm regretting eating too much or just whatever happened to my stomach in general, but either way, it'll be nice to be able to stay home at least tomorrow morning. I may be driving in to work in the afternoon because if I don't, someone will have a question that they need me there to answer. Driving in guarantees that nobody will want to talk to me all day.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
