Today's Bridge: A disappointing day, despite it being the first time we had two partnerships playing Precision. I got H J-10 D A-J-10-9-7 C A-Q-x-x-x-x for my first hand. How do you bid that? I considered starting with 1D, but I felt 2C was the right start, and over Ken's 2S, I had to bid 4D to show my shape. He corrected back to 5C with S A-Q-x-x-x H Q-x-x D 8-x-x C 5-4. Obviously, we didn't do well. I overcalled a 2H pre-empt with 3D despite having only 14 points, because I had six diamonds to the A-Q and a heart void. Ken didn't raise me with four diamonds to the jack and 13, so we missed a game. Opponents struck back with a 4S that picked up two overtricks, and I don't think we managed to make any other contracts. I sacrificed in 5C when I don't think opponents would have made their 4H, but Ken didn't double it, so I figured he was leaving the decision up to me. Some days, nothing works.

Today's Work: The interview went pretty well, and I pushed the work I'd already done to the server and looked into the rest of the work I've been assigned for this sprint. There are a few small changes I need to make, but most of the areas I was supposed to investigate aren't actually problems. That's good for our overall progress, but not a good sign for our estimating skills.

I made quite a mess making fajitas tonight, but they were pretty good, so it was worth it.

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!")
