Today's Bridge: We only had four players, so I got a seat, but the cards were awful. I saw one hand that I was able to make an overcall with, and I ended up declaring 5C Dbl off three just because I was tired of defending with garbage. It wasn't a very good overcall, but I'm pretty sure the opponents had 4H. I fudged another hand into an opening 1S, and Paul supported me with a strong 2NT, so I bid 3S and let him raise to game. It was the right contract - the opponents cashed the ace of clubs and let me have the jack, with K-Q left in my hand to sluff the two losing hearts from dummy. If they cash winners, we only get ten tricks. Then I got S A-x H A-x-x D A-K-Q-x-x C K-J-x, which was a solid 2NT opener. That got passed out, because Paul only had S J-9-x-x H J-10-9-x-x D 2 C x-x-x. Fortunately, Ken led diamonds at every opportunity, even when I let him have the third trick, so even when the hearts failed to set up, I got four diamonds, the two aces, and when Ken finally had to switch suits and picked a club to Dan's ace and the queen back, two clubs.

Today's Work: I got access to a resource I've been trying to reach for a long time, only to find that it's apparently way out of date and doesn't have what I need. If it does have what I need, I'll have a hard time finding it. There was also a discussion about another way of doing a thing I was trying to do yesterday, but it looks like a future plan to me and not something I can use. Aside from the group meeting, it felt like a waste of a day. At least it was early because I woke up early and didn't have to make a sandwich. I'm hoping for more of that, whatever the reason. Maybe it was the medicine.

I had to do a fair bit of driving after I got home, too, and I'm not done yet. It's going to be a long night. Probably not an early morning.

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!")
