Long time fan, first time caller

Today's Bridge: Brent and I took on Ken and Dan H., and while it was a disappointing rubber from my perspective, we ended up winning through sheer force of power. The opponents made a game on the first hand, and there was no defense, but Brent missed the chance to lead a diamond for me to ruff in the 3H follow-up. With both declarer and dummy void in both black suits, diamonds was the only suit where we might have a trick. The rest of the hands were ours to bid, and I think we had games available in most of them, but stopped in a succession of partscores, many of them in 5-1 or 4-2 trump fits with eight or nine card suits on the side. They weren't the optimal contracts, but I had fun trying to make them. Which I did. All of them. Enough to make two games in the end.

Today's Work: The help I got from the company supporting the product I'm working with wasn't as useful as I'd hoped it might be, but I managed to find a way to make it work over the course of the day. I'm working on a few other things as well, so I might actually get through something this week.

I got a message from someone who's been watching my LPs for a long time. It's still weird to think that there are people out there who like what I do. But I'm pretty happy about that.

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!")
