Cats and girls are two of my favorite kinds of people.

Today's Bridge: Brandy was my partner again, and it was hard to argue with any of his bids from what I saw. I opened 1C with a 15-point hand, four hearts and three of everything else - just a point shy of bidding 1NT. We walked up the suits, 1D, 1H, 1S, so I decided to go off-script and bid 2NT. Mike and Ken correctly assessed that I was inviting game, and even what point range I was looking for (10-12). It turned out that Brandy had 13, so we were in great shape. With my S K-x-x H A-J-x-x D Q-J-x C A-x-x and his S J-10-x-x H Q-9-x D A-K-x-x C K-x (I probably have some of the honors in the wrong hands), and Mike's spade lead, it was pretty easy. I set up the hearts by leading the queen and pulling the king, and when I cashed the diamonds, Ken accidentally sluffed the ten of hearts, giving me two more tricks there. I lost one somewhere along the way, but still came away with eleven. It wasn't Ken's only blunder, although the others were bidding mistakes and understandable. In the second to last hand, I had something like S Q-x-x H A-x-x D K-x-x C J-x-x-x, so I had to pass the first time around, but when Mike opened 1S and Ken responded 1NT, I had to bid 2C to show my four-card suit, at least. Mike bid 2S, and Brandy got confused and tried to bid 2H, so he had to correct to 3H. Ken bid 3S, which was a game for them with their earlier partscore (Ken opened 1S with seven of them, made 5), and I had to take my partner's bid as strong and bid 4H, intending to sacrifice. Ken went ahead up to 4S, although he had A-x of spades and four little hearts. I don't think we'd have had any luck in hearts, but I definitely couldn't double the spades. Mike played for the queen to drop and missed the contract. In the final hand, once they'd established a fit in hearts at 3H, Ken jumped to 5H, inviting slam. Brandy had already bid clubs, so Mike read that bid as a club control and raised. Brandy and I started with the A-K of clubs, and that was all we could do. With the only game, I'm pretty sure it was enough, although I wasn't keeping score.

Today's Work: I learned that we have a blanket license to an online textbook repository, so I spent the day reading up on design patterns to help me encapsulate my designs. I don't know whether I'll be able to use most of them, but I'm sure there will be uses for some. I might even be able to apply some of them in Game Maker, if I ever get back to making games. It's been a long time.

Day 15 - Post a cute Neko-girl

I've had one in mind for this purpose from the very beginning. Actually, she serves this purpose and many others. In fact, one might say she's sort of an all-purpose cat-girl.

All-Purpose Cultural Cat-Girl Nuku Nuku

See, I DO post pictures sometimes.

As for the manga catgirl, there's one that springs to mind above all others. And since I didn't do cosplay pictures yesterday and this was easier to find, have a cosplay picture of her.

Mew Ichigo

Do I bend over backward to please my readers or what? Okay, I don't. It's still my entry.
