Today's Bridge: I got to play once again, and my side had the advantage of power and a bit of aggressive bidding. The other side got a 3NT, and Paul failed to attack hearts when I was trying to set up my long ones while I still had the ace of spades as an entry, instead leading... a spade. Overtrick for them. But I got a nice 4S to end with: I had S A-J-8-3 H x D K-10-x-x C J-x-x-x or thereabouts and Paul had S K-Q-10-9 H Q-x-x D A-Q-J-x-x C Q. I think Steve opened 3C, and Paul bid 3D, which surprised me. I was going to bid 3NT over 3H, but instead, I went with 3S, Steve raised to 4C, Paul bid 4S, and they cashed the ace of hearts and a club, led me a heart for the ruff, I pulled two rounds of trump, and when they split, I ran the diamond king to the final outstanding trump, then ruffed the club lead and claimed with nothing but good diamonds and trump.

Today's Work: More meetings, going over documentation, and in what little time I had left, programming. It's mostly trying to convince our contractors to use the message header that THEY suggested. Always a joy.

Today's Gaming: With nothing to watch on TV, I opted for a long session of Ratchet & Clank Future. I found a gold bolt, built up some weaponry, and bought some armor. I'm thinking about some Two Thrones if I have time, but I don't expect I will. I want to finish this Nuku Nuku DVD eventually. I also need more practice on Guitar Hero on Hard. I can almost hit some of the notes occasionally. Once, I even got past the menu screen and CHOSE A SONG. On HARD. That's not easy to do.

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!")
