Today's Bridge: Dan H. and I were up against Dan C. and Ken. We started with a 1NT, but they struck back with a game. We got our own, though - Dan opened the strong 1C and Ken overcalled 1S. My H K-Q-9 D J-10-x-x-x-x C Q-J-10-x was pretty promising, so I doubled, showing a positive response with a yet unspecified five-card suit. Dan bid 2H, so I knew we had a fit there, but I felt 3D was a worthy bid to explore a possible fit there. Dan C. cut in with 3S, which was passed around to me, so I bid 4H, figuring Dan H. could correct back to 5D if he felt it was a better option. He had something like S x-x-x H A-J-x-x-x D A-K-x C A-x, so I think we make either game. In spades, he lost only two spades and the king of clubs after pulling trump, but I think he got lucky. In diamonds, we lose the king of clubs and the offside queen of diamonds, but we'll get ten tricks in the red suits and the ace of clubs. They came out ahead by 40 in the end, but it was a pretty good day.

Today's Work: I got tasked to arrange a report of our ticketing system in a somewhat coherent fashion, which took up most of the day. In the end, I got to return to my main task, which is a bit more complicated than I gave it credit for even yesterday, when I knew it was a big mess. I think I've got a way to move forward, but there are a lot of cases I'll have to test once I get it mostly working.

One of these days, I'll have to look into some kind of flavored jelly to go with seasoned pork chops. They're okay on their own, but I think they could be better.

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!")
