Today's Bridge: Lots of sets to start with, but the opponents managed to make a partscore, which left us on the defense. I went for a 4C sacrifice that wasn't horrible, but with A-K-J-9-x-x in the suit and just a doubleton queen of hearts outside, it was probably a big mistake. Finally, I had S A-10-x-x-x H A D 3-2 C K-9-x-x-x, which was just enough to open 1S in fourth seat (bidding Precision with Jerry). He responded 2S, so I had to jump to game just on the distribution. He had S K-9-x H x-x-x-x D K-Q-x-x C J-x, also a fairly minimal response. The opening lead was the king of hearts, so I led a diamond right away, finding the ace on my right. Dan returned another heart, which I ruffed, and I crossed to the queen of diamonds to lead the jack of clubs - queen, king, ace. Ken cashed the ten of clubs, then led the jack of diamonds, which I ruffed. My only hope at this point was to find the Q-J of spades doubleton, so I ruffed a low club (the split was 3-3, fortunately) and cashed the king of spades, drawing no honors. Oh well. I crossed back to the ace of spades and claimed off one thanks to the established clubs. I don't think I had a better hope than that - I needed to avoid losing two clubs, but I don't think there was a way I could do that given the actual distribution.

Today's Work: I think we got all of the problems solved, but the task lead suggested that I should leave early to pick up my new glasses. I did that. Things look even weirder than they did with the previous lenses, but I expect that to go away once I get used to them. It still takes me a while to focus on text, but I hope that will clear up in time as well.

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!")
