Today's Bridge: I was finally back on form. The opponents won the rubber, but we had a couple of two-trick sets on them and I managed a rough 4NT - I think I had S K-Q-J-10-x H A-Q-x-x D Q-J-x C x, so I opened 1S, Paul responded 2C, I jumped to 3H, and he bid 4D. Well, nowhere to go from there but 4NT. He gave me S x-x H x D A-x-x-x-x C A-K-x-x-x. I took the opening club lead and decided to go for the spades first. Dan H. to my right had four spades and held his ace until the end. He led a heart, and my queen held, so I led the queen of diamonds. I think I'm set if he holds up the king, but he took it and led another heart. I took it, cashed my last spade and jack of diamonds, then crossed to the ace of diamonds and king of clubs. In the last hand, I kept quiet with S K-x H Q-x-x D K-Q-J-x-x C Q-9-x because Dan H. opened 1D, and I had the rattiest 13 points I think I've ever seen and no suit to bid. They ended up in 5C, and I doubled that. The clubs earned me nothing and Dan C. had the A-Q of spades, but I managed two diamonds and I think Paul got one spade along the way to set the contract by just one. Not the best double, but I held it.

Today's Work: The task I got yesterday at the end of the day took me maybe an hour to complete. I sure did set that up to be easy. There was supposed to be a meeting to discuss my trip from last week, but I sent a response and then never heard anything else, so it didn't happen. Oh well. I did about all I could. I'll check my E-mail mid-week or so and see whether anything appears to be happening. Otherwise, it's a good week to be off until someone has something for me to do.

In any case, it should be a great week ahead, and I just need to make sure I get off to a sufficiently early start.

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!")
