Today's Bridge: Sam and Brent joined Ken and me, and we didn't quite finish a rubber, but not for lack of trying. Brent and I started by underbidding a game in spades - none of the possibilities for overtricks panned out, but ten tricks were laydown. I had a decent hand to defend 4H and chanced a double even though I knew Brent had nothing (he led the queen that he had), but Sam didn't pull trump and gave up one trick too many. They bid 3D and couldn't have taken fewer than eleven tricks if they'd tried, and then it became a battle of sacrifices. Ken bid 3S in an attempt to get us out of a 3H that probably would have been off one, ending up off four, and I bid 3C similarly trying to keep them out of a cheap two contract, off one and happy for it. There were a few other times when I bid Brent's power along with my own, but the opponents always ended up bidding over it and missing by one or two.

Today's Work: All of the build machines except mine are having problems. Mine's having problems, but I can work around them. I managed to test some stuff a bit, although I'm not convinced that the results worked quite right, and gave someone a hand with working past the thing that isn't working. It's almost a circus.

I've got enough to do this weekend that I probably can't afford to spend Saturday slacking off as usual. But I likely will. We'll see.

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!")
