Alpocalypse has some great tracks - now to find the original versions to compare

Today's Bridge: The usual lack of luck - I had no problem bidding up to 5D with S Q H K-Q D K-J-10-x-x-x C A-K-x-x or so. I bid the diamonds twice and Dan supported me. He had S K-x-x-x-x H A-x-x D Q-x-x C Q-x, and when Ken let me have my queen of spades, I got an overtrick, sluffing the long club on the ace of hearts. That was our best hand. The opponents got a game before we did, and we had horrible fits in most of the rest of the hands we tried to declare. Dan bid 3NT over Ken's 2H opener, and I couldn't correct to a suit. Off three doubled.

Today's Work: It was nice to have some documentation to read with a purpose in mind. And it was also the end of my week - I need to get my car in to have the alignment and balance inspected (it sometimes shudders violently at high speeds, and almost always shudders a bit when I hit the brakes), so I figured I'd just take the day off. This year, I need to get my leave used up before the end of the year, and I keep finding reasons to take occasional days off, so why not?

I finally finished inFAMOUS 2 last night, with the good ending, and it was really good. I somehow glitched out the mission at one point, so that the camera refused to point in the direction I was going and kept shuddering like my car at high speed. I finally figured out that I could go into aim mode and get to where I was going that way, after covering most of the distance in a Crash Bandicoot running-toward-the-camera perspective where there was always something between Cole and the camera. I thought about starting an evil runthrough after that, or switching games, but I decided to do neither at the time. If I ever finish all the videos tonight, I want to start the evil run. Plenty of other things to play, but I'll get to them later.
