We may have made our deadline.

Today's Bridge: Paul wasn't sure what it meant when I bid 3S over his 3H opener. He asked Steve, who said passing was probably a bad idea. Paul passed anyway. The correct answer is DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, PASS THIS BID! We ended up off two in 3S when we could make 4H without even trying, which is the contract I wanted, but I had to see if there might be a slam try. With his seven hearts opposite my A-K, we might be in excellent distributional shape if he can cover my weaknesses with short suits. But we set a few of their contracts and made a game for ourselves too.

Today's Work: We got the stuff we needed working to work, but we only got the new stuff that the contractor put together late on Friday, and didn't get copies we could access until today. I made some changes that SHOULD make our program work properly with theirs, but I had no time to test them, so the program might utterly crash tomorrow instead of working correctly. I sure hope not. We worked hard to make this delivery and I want it working too.

Today's Gaming: Blue Dragon.Collapse )

The snow and ice have been more annoying than troublesome the past few days, because Indiana went with the typical Indiana approach to winter. With each report of an impending storm, we went all-out on the defense, spending our disaster money in preparation for a storm that never came. Now that the weather's finally gone bad and there's slippery frozen water everywhere, we're out of money, so we just let it sit and don't bother to clean it up. And the rest of the week is supposed to be more of the same... I'm pretty sure I've been hearing rain all evening. Looks like another ice shell on the car tomorrow, and I don't have my gloves anymore. I believe the ones I found in the area where mine fell out of my pocket are someone else's... they're thinner than mine, not as faded, and padded differently, plus they have really ratty Velcro. I'm pretty sure someone spotted mine, liked them, and left me theirs neatly strung over the railing. How considerate. You know what would be more considerate? Returning my damn gloves. I'll gladly trade if I can find whoever stole them.

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!")
