Today's Bridge: The opponents had the cards in the first rubber - I declined to take a few chances that would have gone okay but not swung things, and did take a chance that ended up changing nothing. In the second rubber, we underbid a game at 3C (I would have accepted an invitation to game, and Ken thought in retrospect that he was strong enough to invite, with distribution), and the opponents went for a draw with an ill-fated 3D. I disapproved of Ken's choice to lead from his Q-J-10-3 of trump, but he couldn't lead my suit (K-Q-8-x-x-x of hearts) because he had none, and the diamonds turned out to be the right lead. Dummy had S x H A-J-10-x D 7-x-x C Q-10-x-x-x and my full hand was S 10-x-x H K-Q-8-x-x-x D 7-5 C A-J. Dan C. took the queen of diamonds with his ace, cashed a top spade, and ruffed a spade, all fine. But then he led a low heart to my king, and when Ken sluffed a club, I led a low heart for him to ruff with the three. He led the jack of diamonds, which Dan let him have (the fatal mistake). Ken led the king of clubs, and I made the obvious play, covering to lead a third heart through Dan's king of diamonds, which promoted Ken's ten en passant. Had Dan taken the second diamond trick with the king, it would have held us to two diamonds along with our heart and our club. Perhaps we could force him in trump, but I think he had the spades well covered, and one more heart to get to the ace.

Today's Work: I decided not to worry about rebasing anything for now - the build works sometimes, misses a file or two sometimes, and sometimes fails right at the start and accomplishes nothing. I want to figure out why, but for now, I want to make a BOLO (Be On the Lookout) ticket to track the problem. The guy who made the changes I was following up finally got back to work after a week of orientation (switching employers while remaining in the same position), so I got to go over my changes with him and fix a few things. Still haven't worked out how to move them to the server, but that's tomorrow's task. I need to get it done before missing a day of work on Wednesday.

I'm watching the Presidential debate mainly for the comedy. Trump's attempts to act like a serious candidate are hilarious and utterly flawed. Remember when I summarized Sarah Palin's debate with the movie poster from Maverick? Trump's is a picture of Obama's birth certificate, next to a dotted line where his tax return would go. But he was as entertaining as expected, when you set aside that he's trying to be elected President.

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!")
