Today's Bridge: We only had four people, so Jerry and I took on Ken and Paul. I think the results were disappointing - we got to the right place in the first hand even though I opened 1C with S x-x H J-x D A-K C A-x-x-x-x-x-x or so and Jerry jumped all the way to 3H. I took that to mean he had seven of them, but I bid 4C anyway and he bid 4S. A reverse on top of the double jump - I was tempted to bid 6C, but I left it at 5. He actually had four spades, five hearts, and a fairly strong hand, and I guess he forgot that 2H was a jump. I'm pretty sure I made that one exactly. I similarly bid and rebid diamonds on a hand that wasn't quite strong enough for it, based on Jerry passing and more or less indicating a likely fit, and he ended up raising me to a 5D sacrifice that may not have been guaranteed for off one - I stupidly pulled all of Jerry's trump even though he had the shorter spades, but Ken took the top two and switched to a different suit, letting me toss my last spade on a heart. The real disappointment was S A-K-Q H A-x-x D 10-9-x-x C J-x-x. If we played a weak notrump, that would be perfect, but I had to open 1D. Jerry responded 1H, and I wanted to indicate a continued interest without bidding any suit, so I jumped to 2NT. Jerry corrected to 3D, and I figured that was going to be a stretch, so I passed. With his S 4 H K-Q-10-9-x D A-K-J-x-x C Q-x, I rather think he owed me a jump. We lose two clubs on a club lead, but since Ken had both of the honors, Paul picked a heart and I sluffed Jerry's clubs on my spades. When the queen of trump dropped, I claimed. We defended a 5H successfully thanks to Jerry having the A-K of clubs to cover my doubleton. Ken also only had two, so rather than leading one back, Jerry cashed the singleton ace of diamonds, fortunately also finding Ken with a singleton. There was no way for Ken to get rid of his diamond, though. Unfortunately, they managed to make enough contracts at the end to win the rubber.

I made a Miiverse post in Splatoon that got some attention on Twitter, so that was pretty funny. I'm considering playing some Hyrule Warriors while I watch videos, but I need to finish reading my E-mail and webcomics first, so we'll see whether I have enough time to do both.

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!")
