Today's Bridge: The opponents started with a 3D contract where we didn't have more than two tricks available, but we struck back with a 2H of our own with two overtricks - I wasn't too upset because it was largely on distribution. We finished with 3S, then Dan H. opened 1D when I had S A-Q-x H K-x-x D Q-x-x C A-J-x-x. Square and 16, so I responded 3NT, essentially closeout. With his S K-J-x H x-x-x D K-x C K-Q-x-x-x, there's a risk of an opening lead to the ace of diamonds and a high heart back, but for once the aces were in the opposite positions, and when my queen of diamonds took the lead, I claimed eight tricks in the black suits and moved on without even bothering with the king of hearts.The opponents followed with a pair of partscores that we defended as best we could, but couldn't set.

Today's Work: Things were looking promising at first, but I'm still having a problem with the installation and I can't figure out why. I need to keep experimenting to figure out whether I really understand this problem while I continue to fix what I know is broken. I've got almost two weeks to get everything done.

There was a funny moment this morning on the interstate - a car passed me like I was standing still, and then I found myself behind a very slow car as I approached my exit. Then I noticed a police car coming up behind me with its lights on, so I pulled over, and the car in front of me pulled over as well. The police car pulled in between us - I think the car in front was the same one that had passed me earlier. Nice try, but hiding from the cops like that doesn't work. Believe me.

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!")
