Today's Bridge: The opponents really tried to lose. We set them a total of five tricks in two makeable contracts, while they set our game try one due to a failed spade finesse. Then they made two contracts that probably couldn't have been off had they tried.

Today's Game Maker: The thing has been pissing me off for two days now, as I try to figure out why my character gets stuck on ledges. Finally, I think I've tracked it down to using precise pixel collision detection when I wasn't expecting it. That explains a lot. Grrr... and I had to go into Advanced Mode to remedy the problem. I suppose what I'm doing would be considered advanced, but I just want to make a good game! Is that so wrong?
Today's Manga: Dorothy of Oz 1, the Death Note reader's guide and novel, Kekkaishi 12, King of Cards 3, Kitchen Princess 5, the first two books of Spiral, and Be With You. I also got the third Death Note DVD (good day for the series, I suppose), MST3K 10.2 (I should have done my research... there's going to be a single-disc release of the new movie, but it was delayed... anyone want a discounted, unwatched 10.2 set when the new single comes out?), and Furu Furu Park for the Wii. It might be fun.

The problem is that I was up until well after 3 last night for no meaningful reason. Partly the Game Maker stuff (I think I fixed a few more problems... there's one more weird thing going on, but it shouldn't affect anything much) and partly just not being tired. Hopefully, my body's learned its lesson and will properly want sleep tonight. I had a tiny lunch and an early dinner at TGIF, which will hopefully help. I doubt it... sleep is my archnemesis, and I don't know who its secret keeper is.

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!")
