Why do you think it is some people don't get along with you?

This one's so easy I just have to answer it. I'm not a very likeable person. I have a caustic, inflammatory personality, very low tolerance for stupidity, and little interest in almost anything that people like to talk about. I'm surprised ANYONE likes me, if they even do - past experience has shown me that most of the people who seem to like me are really just too polite to say otherwise. (Those are the people I really can't stand. I don't mind people not liking me as long as they don't try to hide it. If you're afraid of hurting my feelings, I don't need you as a friend. There, I said it.) And that should pretty much cover it. People don't get along with me because I don't bother to invite them to. I don't think any of them are missing much.


Today's Bridge: We scrounged enough for two tables when Ken joined us, and he was one of my opponents. It was Paul and me against him and Kelly, so I rather expected our side to do very well. Indeed we did, wrapping up the first rubber with a 4D that made 6 and was just as good for 6C - if not better. Then Kelly bid herself into 4H and kindly gave Ken a demonstration of what happens when you fail to pull trump - she had very nice long diamonds on the board, but the only entries were the two black aces, and she burned those quickly. She kept trying to get to the board by ruffing clubs, but after a while, the opponents run out of those too, and when you only have two little trump on the board, you're just setting up the opponents' trump. Ken got to play a 4H hand, but I think his side may have been underpowered for it, and he was facing a bad trump split with the board's best feature five spades to the A-Q, and my king was on top of that. Off four... I'm sure it didn't need to be quite that bad, though.

Today's Work: I got through the documentation and made something that should be the closest point of approach algorithms we need, although I'm not really sure how to test them. At least they're SOMETHING.

Today's Gaming: Failing to upload my game (the virus scan bot seems to be ignoring it), I decided to check out Wii Shop and then play some more Brawl. I beat some levels in adventure mode and the rest of the events I've unlocked so far - I may have to beat them again in a harder difficulty to unlock more.

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!")
