Today's Bridge: I finally used up my free play, but it was a good day to do it. Aside from ending in 3C in a hand that made 6 and I think was at worst cold for 5 (I had S A H K D A-Q-J-x-x-x C K-x-x-x-x and Jerry had three clubs to the A-Q, five hearts to the queen, and I think the king of diamonds too), we took advantage of the power we had and the sacrifices we made worked better than expected - I chanced 3H with five spades and five hearts even though Jerry hadn't shown a holding in either suit, and I was only off one. The opponents had a 3NT that I don't think we could defend against, and we ended with a partscore. We did set their 4S with a singleton heart lead to Jerry's A-Q, an overruff on the return, cashing my ace of clubs while the board still had its singleton club, and declarer led the queen of diamonds to Jerry's king and his own ace, establishing my J-x in unlikely fashion. A sufficiently high ruff at trick two should give them the contract. I also erred in an earlier hand where we still set them, but with 10-x of trump in my hand, Jerry took the A-K of clubs, and by my count, both declarer and I were out of clubs when he led the queen. I should have ruffed with the ten for an uppercut, but I let it go, and declarer's A-K-Q of trump covered Jerry's J-x-x.

Today's Work: More of the tedium of implementing low-level messages while I don't know exactly how they'll fit together to form useful functions.

Today's Depression: White privilege sucks and I would honestly do anything to be rid of it forever.

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!")
