My neck feels better, but it still hurts

Today's Bridge: The opponents pretty well swept it - I had a strong hand for the first hand, and bid up to 3S, but Dan C. left me there. I got lucky and ended up with an overtrick. The opponents made their own 3S, with three overtricks, then finished with a small partscore and a 5D that we couldn't oppose. Finally, Ken opened 1S to my right, and with S K-9-8 H A-K-x-x D A-x-x-x C x-x, I saw no option but to double. Dan responded 2C, which Ken doubled, and I bid 2D, which was the final contract. Dan had S A-J-x H x-x D J-x-x-x C 10-x-x-x, and the queen of spades lead made things pretty easy. I took in hand, and fearing a ruff, I cashed the ace of diamonds, then led a low one to the jack and Ken's queen. He cashed two clubs, and I ruffed the third, cashed my spades and hearts, and conceded the top trump, making an overtrick on the crossruff.

Today's Work: The problem I thought would be simple turned out to be much more complicated, just due to the way the programs we're using work. I had to work on a few other problems first, of course. My work is never done. That's a good thing, because it means I have a job, but sometimes I need to be able to finish things.

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!")
