A Friday for thinking unusual thoughts

Today's Bridge: Ken and I teamed up against Jerry and Raymond and came out well on top. I don't remember there being anything particularly notable about any of the hands, except maybe a 2S we defended where I started with my singleton heart and Ken led every non-trump he had except hearts until Jerry ruffed in and pulled my trump. We took five tricks in the side suits, so I think even one ruff would have done it. I screwed up one of my hands by forgetting to cash the jack of hearts while I was in my hand to sluff a loser from dummy, then exited with no entries. Fortunately, Jerry led a heart back at me and made up for my mistake. Ken and I each had some killer hands, though - I had 19 in the first hand and we just had nearly identical distribution in 5D, then he had 19 in the third hand and we made a game there. I had a 21-point hand even later with S A-K-Q-J-x H K-x D A-K-x C J-x-x - with weak clubs, short hearts, and five great spades, I elected to bid 1S instead. We ended at 4S, and with Ken's S 7-x-x-x H A-x-x D J-10?-x-x-x C x, I thought we'd probably underbid. When the jack of diamonds held a trick, I figured we'd definitely underbid. However, Jerry had a singleton diamond and ruffed in while I tried to ruff away both of my clubs before I finished pulling trump. Maybe I should have tried to set up the diamonds instead and just pulled another round, but they turn out not to establish.

I got another video processed, and I'll upload it tomorrow. I'm keeping pace with my release schedule, at least, and I have the weekend to do more work, depending on my mood. I might just blow off LP work for the weekend and play more games instead.

Signature

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!")
