Today's Bridge: Nathan and Brent filled in, opposing Dan C. and me. I stretched for 3D in the first hand, and Dan made it exactly. Then Nathan went for 3D with almost no support from his partner (and only five diamonds) when I had S K H A-x D A-10-8-6-3 C Q-J-9-x-x, and Dan had supported my clubs. Fortunately, I didn't double - Dan had almost no power, and I used up my ruffing power covering hearts, so he ended up just making it. Finally, I went for 3H with S K-x-x H K-Q-J-8-x-x-x D Q-x-x - I would have pre-empted at game, but without an ace, it seemed like a bad idea. Dan had S A-x-x-x H 5 D A-K-x C 10-8-x-x-x - I ruffed the opening club lead and led the king of hearts to Brent's ace, while Nathan dropped the nine. Brent led another club, so I ruffed and led the queen of hearts. Nathan threw a club. At this point, if I'd needed the extra overtrick, I could have tried for a grand coup, but I didn't have quite enough winners, and I thought Brent still had the 10-9, so I just cashed the jack, then ruffed out clubs until Brent ruffed in. I threw my losing spade under his trump, then claimed two overtricks.

Today's Work: I arrived to a crisis - our build had a critical failure, and when we started investigating, the engineer running the test had a completely different critical failure. We figured out what was happening over the course of the day, ending up back at the original problem, but didn't have much time to investigate. I think I figured out what the problem was and how to fix it, but right at the end of the day, so I sent the other engineer an E-mail with my findings and will have to wait until tomorrow to find out whether it works.

I made salmon fajitas again. They're really good, but I always end up eating too much. There's also a lot of washing afterward. But it's the best way to get in my peppers and onions.


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!")
