Today's Bridge: It was more disappointing than anything else. I misplayed what was admittedly a doomed 5C sacrifice, then nearly misplayed the follow-up 2NT - S 6-5 H A-K-J D A-K-Q-x C A-x-x-x facing S J-x-x H Q-10-9-x D x-x-x C Q-x-x-x. I hated opening that strong with a weak doubleton, but what else can you do? The opponents took the first four tricks in spades (while Ken seemed baffled for about a minute after the opening lead... no idea what his confusion was about), then led the five of hearts, which ran to my hand. Ken made a joke about me playing the six, which almost confused me into taking with the jack - the contract is dead if I do that, though. I snapped at him for it and shouldn't have. Aside from that, it was the opponents' day - Ken declared a 4S that I think he could have made by ruffing a heart, but they made the rest of their contracts and we had no answer to them. The best we got was them not bidding a laydown slam on distribution.

Today's Work: Mostly more reviews, with a slight dalliance for continuing to help set up a new build environment. It's a real puzzle. At least we worked out that the weird head-recursive function I saw yesterday was meant to trick the compiler into thinking that the variable was referenced when it actually wasn't. Reasonably clever.

My health, both mental and physical, seems to be at a low point this week. I'm still considering putting off my next therapy appointment so I can go to my coworker's retirement party next week, but it may be better to get it as soon as possible.

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!")
