Bed early tonight? That never works.

Today's Bridge: We were short until Mike showed up, and he was my partner. We didn't get much to work with in most of the hands, but we had some great sacrifices and even made a 3S. Mike said he might have been able to get another trick out of it, but I'm still glad I didn't raise - he'd opened weak, and I barely had an opening hand with strong minors. We had a really interesting hand when I had S A-10-9-3 H x-x-x D Q-x C A-x-x-x. The opponents were bidding up a fit in hearts, so I bid 3S. Paul bid 4H, and Mike raised me to 4S, which Dan doubled. Mike had an amazing hand: S J-8-x-x-x D J-9-x-x-x-x C x-x. Paul started with A-K of diamonds, with Dan sluffing a club on the second, then led a club. I took with the ace, just in case the split was really bad, and decided to crossruff. Dan let the jack of diamonds go, so I sluffed a club, and he ruffed the second diamond with the queen. I covered, then kept up the crossruff until I was forced to pull the trump and give up the final club. A one-trick set, but it looks like the opponents have no trouble making 5H.

Today's Work: Mostly done with a document. The other one I have to edit, fortunately, shouldn't take too much work. I hope I can get them both done tomorrow.

It was a tiring day, largely because I was up until about 12:30 last night, then couldn't fall asleep for some reason. I wanted to get to work early, too, but it turned out not to be a concern. I stayed awake enough to get stuff done. As for why I was up late? Well... Paw was streaming King's Quest VII last night, surprisingly sooner than I'd expected, and I showed up not long before his guest, PushingUpRoses, had to leave. He didn't want to have to work alone, so he invited me and Vangelus into the call with him, and we stayed until after midnight working our way through the first half of the game or so and making fun of everything we could. He's invited me back in the future, and I certainly look forward to that. I'll try to remember to post Twitter links to the stream whenever I'm in it, in case anyone wants to watch. No idea when it'll be.
