Today's Bridge: We had just enough people to play, and Ken and I held out as well as we could - when he opened 1C and I had S Q-x-x-x K J-x-x-x-x D K-x C x-x or so, I felt compelled to bid 1H, and when he jumped to 3C, I took it that he didn't have four spades to bid and thought 3H was the most useful bid. he raised me to 4H - naturally, I had no way to make it, but I held it to off one. I had more luck with S J-x-x H A-K-x-x D K-x C A-Q-x-x. I opened 1NT, Ken bid 2C Stayman, I responded 2H, and he raised to game with S K-Q H Q-x-x-x D J-x-x-x C K-x-x. Kevin started with A-x of diamonds, so I took the king perforce and led my top two hearts, finding a 4-1 split with Jerry holding the J-10 to my right. I crossed to the king of clubs, ruffed a diamond, then crossed to the king of spades (which held) and ruffed the last diamond. (I think I did that in the wrong order - if Jerry holds the ace of spades, I think he's more likely to hold up if he doesn't know that I'm trying to ruff away my heart holding.) From there, I ran my two clubs, with Jerry ruffing the second and leading back a diamond. I ruffed on the board, cashed the queen to pull his last heart, and had only the last spade to lose to the ace. From there, there were a few set contracts before the opponents made a game and a relatively cold slam in a row (bid at 3NT, making 6NT or 6D barring a singleton lead and a ruff after taking the ace of diamonds).

Today's Work: I had a goal, and I met it.

The commute home was a real pain due to very heavy rain - after passing an accident that was fortunately not blocking the road, I hit flooded roads that took control away even when I was driving slowly, and the car behind me STILL tailgated me most of the way. I hate other drivers.


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!")
