I even remembered to jog this morning.

Today's Bridge: I had S A-K-8-x H A-x D A-9-7-x C 4-3-2, Ken opened 2H to my left, and Jerry doubled. With visions of slam, I jumped to 3S, and he raised to 4S. Granted, we might be a bit shy point-wise, but Jerry should have plenty of power in the minors to make up his 16+, so I went for Blackwood to see if he had the ace of clubs. He didn't, so I stopped at 5S. What he actually had was S Q-3-2 H Q-x-x D K-x-x C A-K-J-9, which is a point short and a heart long of what I was expecting to get. Ken led his singleton club, so I took the ace, cashed the queen of spades, and crossed to the ace to lead my low heart. Ken took the king right away and led a diamond, which I let run to my ace. I cashed the ace of hearts, then crossed to the king of clubs (Ken threw a heart) to lead the queen of hearts. Dan C. threw a diamond, so I threw my club. With nothing better to do, I cashed the king of diamonds, on which Dan threw a club, then led a low diamond, on which he threw another club. Ken took the trick and led a heart, at which point I screwed up. I had S 3 C J-9 left in dummy and S K-8 D 9 left in hand, and had I let the heart run to my hand, I would have taken ten tricks no matter what. Instead, I ruffed with the three, and Dan overruffed, forcing my king. That left me with a losing diamond and the losing spade, off two. Then Dan started mocking me in the postmortem, as I was pointing out my own misreading of the bidding, and that pissed me off enough that I left the table. I haven't decided whether I feel like returning tomorrow or not.

Today's Work: We got our tasking for the next week and a half settled, and the building got hot enough that someone put in an emergency work order and got the A/C fixed. I guess there are lines that people aren't willing to cross at every level of government now.

I had a bit of time for LP work tonight, but not enough - I only managed to preview a video from a while back that I need to record commentary for. If I have another early day tomorrow, I may manage to get that done, but staying up late won't help with that.

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!")
