Today's Bridge: Kelly and Dan decided to team up against Paul and me again, and we still came out on top. Then we played one final hand, and Paul raised to 5D to beat their 4S, which we decided would have been off one. Ours was off one because Dan led the ace of hearts and Kelly got a heart ruff... but strangely, I'd rather be off one doubled than the opponents be off one doubled, because it means that with imperfect defense, they might make the contract. My big moment was realizing that I'd set up the nine of diamonds on the board, but the board was out of high cards to use as entries. I forget how long it took me to notice that I still had a diamond to lead up to it. -_-
Today's Birthday Cavalcade: My first commission!
I think. livali
has chosen the V for Victory pose for Tomoyo, which is quite an interesting take on the character. Very nice work, and thanks. In other Tomoyo art news... this will offend you
. If you're not afraid, you might be the one person on my list who will understand why I linked that. Maybe two, if the other one has a good memory.
The afternoon DJ on my favorite radio station said it best... the weather this week has been schizophrenic. It was 60 on Monday, then it snowed on Tuesday. It was still snowy Wednesday, and today, I took my coat off as soon as I stepped outside. 60 again. I have no idea what's going on anymore. However, I got another UPS shipping notification, which I can only assume means that Anime Nation got a copy of Grenadier 3 in stock and have sent it to me. I should be getting the confirmation E-mail from them any minute now.
I didn't really do anything special to celebrate today, but I had the rest of the apple crisp, which I probably would have made three servings otherwise. Also a big scoop of ice cream. And I beat a few more bosses in Mega Man X3 and collected a few more items, including two more energy tanks, more hearts, and one ride armor. That armor isn't in any of the levels I've completed, though, so I need to watch for it in the other four. Then there's the matter of the mod chips, I think. I've got the leg armor, which I'm sure will be the most useful, but I forget where the four mod chips were and what they do. I'll find them all soon enough.
Now I must run... tonight, no matter what, I'm watching another episode of Rune Soldier. And if I stay up too late, that will be really hard on me tomorrow morning. If I've forgotten anything, I'll fill it in later. Thanks for all the birthday wishes, everyone! I think this has been the most friendly birthday I've ever had. ^_^
