Today's Bridge: I think I did slightly better than yesterday, but my big mistake was miscounting the trump in one hand and thinking Kevin had one more than he had. Had I just pulled all the trump, I'm pretty sure I would have made the contract. I was afraid he'd ruff with the long trump and lead something I was out of for additional undertricks. I think there were two 2C openers, including one by Dan C. as my partner. With S x-x-x H J-x D x-x-x C A-K-x-x-x, I fudged things just enough to bid 3C, and when he responded 3S, I went to 3NT. He had S A-K-Q-x H A-K-10 D A-x-x C Q-x-x, and had I let the opening heart lead run to my jack, I'd have made 6 on a 3-2 club split. However, it seemed too risky because if the clubs didn't split, I'd give up one, and I couldn't risk Ken taking the queen of hearts and leading a diamond. There was a hand where we set the opponents by two, and I should have doubled, but I didn't want to let them know where all the power and trump were. My power wasn't quite solid enough for me to know that it couldn't be finessed or ruffed away. We missed the first contract because I think Dan took my bid as stronger than it was. He opened 1D and with no other biddable suit and five solid diamonds, ten points, I bid 3D. 2NT is the bid we use for 13 or more.

Today's Work: Every time I make a decision about how to do the task I'm working on, one more thing gets in the way and makes me want to rethink my decisions. I keep wanting to go back and change the way I've done things to make other things work slightly better, because at this rate, it's going to be a horrible mishmash of code and I don't like that. This is functionality that I don't think should exist, even though it's a really good idea.

I got a call back from that doctor's office and made an appointment to see the doctor. I'll probably get referred to specialists from there and have to wait a month or so before anything actually happens, but at least it's a definite step toward fixing the problems and a step that will naturally lead to more steps, so there's no more danger of me losing my nerve halfway and giving up. I really plan to go through with it this time.

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!")
