Today's Bridge: I don't think we quite played to our full potential - Dan H. left me in 3S in the first hand and I made 4 without really trying, but then he made 3S exactly to finish the game. I botched the defense in a 3NT that I think we should have set - I held onto the eight of clubs because I forgot that Dan H. had the other remaining club, so I unguarded the king of diamonds. We tried to come back starting with a 2NT with an overtrick, but Kevin made 4S with an overtrick and ended the rubber. We also got set in a disastrous 2C along the way - I doubled Dan C's opening 1D even though I had S K-J H A-K-Q D J-x-x-x C 9-x-x-x, Dan H. responded 1H, and Dan C. bid 1NT. I decided to try 2C just to see if maybe Dan H. was 4-4, planning to end in hearts, but he passed with S 10-x-x H 10-x-x-x-x D K-x-x C x-x. I think that was worth a 2H rebid, since with five clubs, I probably would have overcalled instead of doubling. Oh well.

Today's Work: I finally made it to the lab, and the equipment wasn't even set up in the morning. I still managed to demonstrate the new functionality and test what I'd done. There's a problem with one feature that will probably be used a lot more than it ever was with the improvements I've made, so I plan to work on that tomorrow. It's a problem I've fixed in other features before, but I didn't like the specific change I made, so if there's an alternative, I want to find it.

I've noticed a significant decrease in flashbacks lately, although whether that's a direct effect of the medication or just me happening to think of fewer things that cause them, I don't know yet. I had one not too long ago, but they usually happen a lot more than that. I think that was the first one all day. So if the medication is actually having an effect, it might be working. My chest also feels a bit heavier than it has after past doses, and for a fair bit longer, so I'm worried about that. I'm still breathing okay, but if it keeps getting worse, I'll have to stop taking this medication and try something else.

Signature

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!")
