Today's Bridge: I actually drew the high card, and my luck mostly stuck with us in the actual hands. The opponents bid 4S and made 6 in one hand, but then we bid 4C and made 6 - we were missing two aces, though, so I don't think it was biddable. I managed to establish one of Dan C.'s long suits to sluff my singleton losing diamond. The final hand was a rough 2NT with S A-x H J-x D A-x-x-x-x C 9-x-x-x facing S K-J-10-x-x H K-Q-x-x D x C K-Q-x. Fortunately, Jerry had both missing aces to my left and underled his queen of spades. I got the ten on the first trick, crossed to the ace to unblock, then ran the jack of hearts, which held. I'm pretty sure I led a heart up next, winning that as well, and cashed the king of spades. Predictably, the queen remained out, so I led to it, won the king of clubs on the next lead, cashed the final spade, and crossed to my ace of diamonds for trick eight. I tried a club to establish the queen, but it never panned out. There was another pretty interesting 5D that Dan doubled. I had two aces (including the singleton ace of trump) and Dan had one more, plus Paul played the hearts so that Dan's jack set up for off two. 500 points was a pretty nice haul.

Today's Work: We finally got the substitute for one of the devices, so I was able to get my driver talking to it. It turns out that the operations I need are simpler than I expected them to be, which is a big help. The bad news is that the other device is severely delayed - well beyond when I understand that we're going to need it. Ugh all around. At least I've got something tangible to work on now.

I just didn't manage to fall asleep last night and don't understand why. I've gotten everything done a bit earlier tonight than usual, so I'm hoping to getin a bit of Hyrule Warriors and then actually sleep. I hope the same thing every night.

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!")
