I drank so much today, I'm a bit worried

Today's Bridge: Ryan was my partner, and there were some lessons to learn, such as "Don't pass your partner's shift when you're void in his suit" and "Don't lead a suit when you know both opponents are void." Our contracts were good, but the splits were horrible - in the hand where Ryan was void, the opening club lead was ruffed, and I declared 3D with S Q-x-x H x-x D A-K-10-9-7-3 C J-x facing S A-K H A-Q-x-x D 5-4 C A-K-9-x-x. The opening lead was a spade, so I led a trump to the ace, with Dan showing out. So I crossed back to the king of spades, and Ken ruffed with the six and led the queen of diamonds, which I covered. The heart finesse lost, but he led a club to the jack, queen, and king. I cashed the ace, then ruffed one, catching a 3-3 split for once. All I had to do was cross back to the ace of hearts and lead good clubs, although I could have led trump at any time after that.

Today's Work: I hate when problems stop happening before I can figure out why they're happening, especially when I can't make them happen again. Also, I learned that "perseveration" is a thing. It's not the thing that was intended in the context where I saw it, although it seems like it would fit a lot of our documentation, but at least that explains why spell-check didn't catch it.

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!")
