Today's Bridge: Not altogether horrible, although we lost by a huge margin. I'm not entirely happy that Ken took my jump to 4S as strong, but it's an unusual bid. Even more unusual since I only had one point... the jack of my seven-card spade suit. Even less happifying was a 4NT contract where the splits were all wrong and we had no fits - Ken went up to 4H with no heart honors at all. Despite 3NT also sort of implying heart coverage, at least it's a 3-level contract.

Today's Work: More stuff piled onto the task list, and a few things taken off. Yay. Now, not only do I have to come up with brilliant schemes to do things that seem impossible, but I have to write a description in layman's terms of how they work. Considering that these are to be read by the same people who didn't know how computers worked the last time we tried to tell them something was impossible, that's a daunting task. I wouldn't have been so brilliant if I'd known I'd have to show my work.

Today's Gaming: I'm just as lost in Riven as I was the first time I played it, only more so because I can't find the place where I got stuck before. I'm considering loading up my saved game on my old computer, if it still exists, just so I can backtrack and see if I can find that spot again. It's getting annoying, but at least I have a good feeling that if I can find the spot, I'll be able to get past it.

Today's Anime: More Spiral. Maybe it's because last night was the first time that I'd watched an episode after reading the corresponding manga chapter, but I was a little disappointed. They built up to a big climax that won't come until the next episode, and I've already seen both the buildup and the climax. Seems like a long episode of going nowhere, because I knew that the buildup was just buildup. More of that in a few minutes, though.

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!")
