It's too late for me to care much

Today's Bridge: Brooklyn made up our table, and things mostly went my way. Brooklyn opened 1H with a four-card suit, but made the resulting 4H contract, and while I was explaining the five-card major system, I picked up an opening hand with five diamonds and opened 2D, which had been my overcall in the previous hand. Oops. I ended up making 4D since Jerry had four diamonds with the missing honors and I only lost the three side-suit aces. We wrapped it up with a 3H, having made 5C Dbl previously - and Jerry was angling for a slam, so I think he should have redoubled. I couldn't do it - with S 10-x-x-x H x-x D A-x-x C K-x-x-x, I barely scraped a response at all. He opened 1D, I responded 1S, and he jumped to 3C. I bid 4C only because his distribution might suit game or slam, and he raised to 5C. The only trick he lost was the ace of clubs - Ken also had the ace of spades, I think, but Jerry was void.

Today's Work: I got my new assignment, and it seems pretty interesting. It combines various things I've worked on in the past, so I've got a good basis to start from. We also got good news about a recent audit. And I even made it to work earlier than any other day this week, despite forgetting to stop for gas on the way. So I think things are working out. I might even take more sinus medicine tomorrow. My nose has been running all day, but I'm still squeamish about dextromethorphan.

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!")
