Today's Bridge: Raymond joined in because Ken invited him before waiting to see whether Dan H. would show up, and he was my partner. Considering how little he plays anymore, I think he did pretty well. Some decisions I didn't agree with, but he didn't have much to work with most of the day. They made a 3H contract with a 6-0 trump split against them, which i put down to Raymond ruffing the wrong club. He let the master king run, allowing Jerry to sluff a losing diamond from dummy, then ruffed a low club that I could have covered, inviting Jerry to overruff with the ace. We had some good sets too, though, so I enjoyed the day. I'm not sure whether I handled the first auction in the best possible way, though. Raymond opened 1H, and I had S A-K-J-9-8-x-x H 7 D Q-x-x C J-10. I felt that was too strong to jump straight to 4S, so I bid 1S instead. Raymond bid 2H, so I jumped from there to 4S. His S Q-10-x H A-K-x-x-x-x D K-10-x C K was just an ace short of being worth looking for slam, and when Jerry underled his ace of clubs, I got twelve. Maybe 4S would have been a better response, but Raymond hasn't limited his hand at that point and slam isn't out of the question. I think I got across that I had a solid suit and a bit of power as well.

Today's Work: Mostly shuffling online paperwork around, and getting a bit of work in. Now that I know what to do and how to do it, it should go much faster in future sprints.

I also got my appointment to get my CPAP fixed - tomorrow morning, surprisingly. I'm glad I'll hopefully only have to endure one more night of waking up shortly after 3 from a painfully dry throat. It means a late day at work and I had to submit my leave request at the last minute, but I can't put this off any longer.

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!")
