Today's Bridge: I think we underbid a couple of hands - Ken passed 3C when we were cold for four and had two finesses for overtricks. They both worked, but I'm still happy with a 75% chance. Then I jump-shifted from his 1C opener to 2D with S A-x-x H K-J-x D K-x-x-x-x-x C A, which should be forcing to 3NT. Ken bid 2H, I bid 3D, and he passed unexpectedly with S K-Q-x H A-x-x-x D A-10-x C J-x-x. Admittedly, neither of us had more than we promised, but the only possible losers we have are diamonds and maybe a heart, and I find it hard to imagine that we'd lose two diamonds. As it was, a heart lead eliminated the loser there and I started with the king, dropping the singleton queen to my right but losing the jack, whereas starting with the ace would have potentially been worth an extra overtrick if I'd finessed. The opponents had some successes, but flubbed the final 4S, which was makeable despite my holding three aces and a king. Dan H. had a singleton club opposite the ace, but sluffed clubs from the board on his diamonds instead of heart, setting up a heart for our fourth trick.

Today's Work: The same as before, but I also had to read a slideshow. By the end of the slideshow, I was looking forward to getting back to the documentation work.

I thought Twilight Princess HD was out today, but that's not until Friday, so I just had to go pick up my medications. I think they overcharged me for the glucose test strips, so I need to look up how to ask my insurance company about that and what to do if they did. I guess I have to call them.

Signature

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!")
