The storm they predicted... another dud.

Something has to give. One of these days, they're going to predict nothing at all, and suddenly, we'll be buried under ten feet of snow. That's the National Weather Service's track record for you. Of course, this time, we actually got SOME precipitation... a nice shell of ice on all the cars and roads, but that was about it.

Today's Bridge: Some people didn't manage to make it in today, so we only had three players. We finally convinced Ken to sit down and learn some bidding conventions, and we've got the training wheels on him for now. Not everyone played to their best today, but I believe I declared every contract and made most of them. Steve overbid my weak two with a weak hand of his own, and I couldn't avoid losing one trick too many. But I pointed out where the defense in each contract failed, because most of those shouldn't have been made, or should at least have given me a lot of problems. Paul cashed a king once, setting up a queen on the board to let me sluff a loser, and Ken led his last trump at me, having lost count of how many I had left. Easy enough to do.

Today's Work: I finally finished integrating the two new messages I've been working on, on and off, for days. I had a conflict due to my own forgetfulness, but in the course of wondering what the heck was going on, I solved a few other problems that would have plagued me incessantly had I not been looking for them. Unfortunately, the rest of the project team is in training for the rest of the week, so I don't imagine I have much to do for the next few days but keep doing what I've been doing, or maybe start working toward what we need to have accomplished by the deadline. Yeah, right... like anyone imagines working toward a deliverable will be productive.

Today's Gaming: I played a lot of Guitar Hero Encore, then decided to cater to my random hankering for some Dark Cloud. I have no idea why I wanted to play that... after one floor of the Demon Shaft, I was ready to play something else. Almost anything else, in fact. And I've got a few minutes, just too short to watch another episode of Spiral... maybe I'll find another game worth playing in the meantime.

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!")
