Today's Bridge: Surprisingly, we had enough people to play, and it mostly went well. I tried to convince Dan C. to choose between game or slam in clubs when I had a monster hand, but he left me in 4C with an overtrick - admittedly, he had only a queen for power, but he had a singleton diamond to go with my singleton heart. Dan doubled the opponents' 4H with the top three trump, cashed them, and lost the rest. Then I went for a sacrifice 5C Dbl against the opponents' 4S, which I think they would have made, but the splits were horrible and I lost four tricks off the bat, plus the top two trump. But I got the better of a goulash for once. I had S x H A-K-Q-J-5 D A-Q-x-x-x-x C x and bid my way up to 5D. Dan C. had the doubleton K-J of diamonds, which was plenty to get me there.

Today's Work: I finished most of what I needed to do. Sadly, someone who needed to test something had a problem getting it installed, but she'll take care of it next week before we have to decide whether it works as intended. I ended the day by closing our previous sprint. It's the first one. It's a pretty good feeling.


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!")
