Today's Bridge: The same cast as yesterday, in new places. We got set a couple of times to start with, before striking back with a game. I had a rather interesting hand - S 9-x-x-x H K D A-K-J-9-5 C K-x-x. I opened 1D, Dan H. responded 1H, I bid 1S, he rebid 2H, and I closed at 2NT. His S 10-x-x H A-10-x-x-x D 6-3 C A-x-x didn't offer much hope for the contract, but I had a plan as always. The opening lead was a heart to my king, and I led my lowest diamond. Ken covered with the seven, but Bruce decided to go up with the queen, making things easy for me. He continued with another diamond, so I took it and ran the diamonds, the clubs, and the ace of hearts. The opponents had thrown so many clubs by that point that I got an extra trick with the last one, but that was it. I tried to explain why my first diamond was a safety play - in short, because I needed to lose a diamond even if they split 3-3, I chose to lose the first one rather than the last so that dummy would still have a diamond, creating another entry to my diamonds in case I needed it.

Today's Work: I think we're officially finished dealing with last week's problem, and we're back to doing actual work. It's fulfilling. They also replaced my computer, finally. The new one works pretty well. I can actually log into it. Surprisingly, I couldn't do that with the old one. I can also make programs run, which didn't happen with the old one. It's weird being able to work again.

My stomach was really hurting this afternoon, and I don't know why. It hurt all the way home, and I even put off eating dinner to see if Pepto-Bismol would help. It didn't. When I finally heated up an Atkins dinner, the pain started to subside at the first bite. It's still sort of there, so I need to take it easy yet, but I wonder whether maybe my hunger sense is just completely out of whack. Hopefully, it was a one time thing. And maybe related to eating something that had gone bad.

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!")
