Today's Bridge: Brooklyn, one of our occasional players, filled in as our fourth, and rather consistently undervalued her hand as far as I could tell. We threw in the first hand and did a goulash, which ended with Dan C. declaring 3NT. I don't think notrump is usually a good idea in a goulash, but then, neither are most trump suits. Brooklyn had eight spades, but Dan had none, and he had the top five diamonds while I had most of the rest - Brooklyn had the lone 4. In the end, Ken's hearts won the day by taking just enough tricks, although Dan cleared my diamonds for me before leading clubs and my queen could have been an entry. Both sides made tiny partscores when they had much stronger hands (I passed 1S with three points and a heart void, Brooklyn passed with a 15-point hand because she didn't know which suit to open), and we finished our game first. They ended with a 4H that looked like we could probably set it, but they made it, and we made a couple of sacrifices along the way to end up slightly behind... not that I bothered to add it up.

Today's Work: My task lead pointed out a way that I could make not only the current task, but a number of other things I've done recently, a lot less messy. I'll work on that tomorrow, probably. It gives me enough that I should be able to work from home on Monday, at least.

There was a food truck of some kind in the parking lot of the local gas station when I stopped there to fill up this afternoon. It said they were selling barbecue (or Bar-B-Q), but I smelled fish. I made sweet and sour chicken when I got home, after watching the latest Steven Universe a few minutes behind the actual air time. It's great having a working DVR. Which reminds me that I've been neglecting MLP:FIM. Perhaps this weekend, among all the other things I need to do.


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!")
