Working with video is never easy

Today's Bridge: I lucked into a seat and that's where my luck ran out. If I ever had a half-decent hand, I was inevitably on the defense, and whenever Kevin had a good enough hand to declare, I had nothing to offer him. That was still enough for a 3NT, and that was the only game. There was one rather interesting auction - Dan C. opened 1D, Paul responded 1H, and Dan inexplicably jumped two levels to 3S. (They're not playing splinters.) Paul took Dan for exactly four spades and fewer than four hearts, which meant he must have four diamonds for his opening bid. So he corrected to 4D. Then Dan bid 4NT, which I took for a natural, but Paul took for Blackwood. 5C-5NT-6C-6NT followed, and Kevin finally decided to double that. Paul had no idea what to do and bid 7D, and with S x-x-x H x-x-x D A-J-10-4 C x-x-x, I had to double. Things went really badly for Dan, since Kevin had three kings, including diamonds. I ended up getting two of my diamonds plus a ruff, and Kevin got his kings for off six doubled.

Today's Work: Yet another brand-new assignment, pushing most of the old ones aside for a while. The solution I've got for now is clunky and far from ideal, but it's getting the job done for right now without requiring a lot of rework, so I'm satisfied. It also gives me an opportunity to clean up something that needed to be cleaned up before.

Part of me wants to do the final Psychonauts commentary tonight, but the rest of me isn't feeling it. I've got a little time to decide, but I'll probably put it off for a while. I won't be recording the second pass for a while, in any case.

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!")
