Can't quite master the Master Sword

Today's Bridge: Dan C. was available, so he and I took on Nathan and Anna. We started with a 3NT, S Q-10 H A-K-Q-x-x D x-x C Q-x-x-x facing S A-K-x-x-x H 6 D A-J-10-9-x C x-x. Probably not the safest contract, but we were at the three level before we found the misfit. Anna let the opening club lead run to my queen, so I tested the spades and they broke. I cashed them all, while both opponents threw hearts. Naturally, all five of my hearts were good, and they both held on to a top club, setting up both of dummy's last diamonds. They then went for a pair of contracts, off two each time, and ended with a slam. It was S Q-10-8-x H J D A-J-10-x-x C Q-x-x facing S A-K-x-x H A-K-Q-x-x C A-K-x-x played at 6S. The J-9-x-x of spades were under declarer's holding, and the nine took the final trick, but Anna ruffed a couple of diamonds, cashed her winners, and finished things up with aplomb. I think she got lucky on the distribution, especially in clubs, but she made it and that's what counts, particularly for new players.

Today's Work: I could barely stay awake, even though I remain incapable of falling asleep, and the usual medical issues were worse than ever. I probably should have stayed home today. I kept on researching the stuff I need to work on next week, and that was about it.

For a lark, I gave Calamity Ganon a try tonight. I have no idea what to do, but I'm sure there's something I just haven't thought of.

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!")
