Today's Bridge: I didn't get to play, which was a shame. There were two or three slam-worthy contracts, all sadly underbid. Two of them were redoubled and made overtricks.

Today's Work: We got the notice late today that they tried to fix the HVAC, but failed. If they can find a spare part on the shelf, they estimate that it'll be fixed in three to five days. If not, three to five WEEKS. So the small portion of the building where my branch works is once again an oven for the early part of the summer. No, they won't have the spare part, because they've used them all fixing the same damn unit every year until this one. And next year, it'll break again. It just does. The good news is that they've given us permission to wear shorts to work. A bit late... I wore emergency shorts today. Tomorrow, I'll wear regular shorts and start bringing emergency pants in case they fix the thing and it gets too cold. The best part is that we went over the schedule in a meeting today, and we have about two weeks to pretty much finish the project. Fat chance of that too. We'd be lucky to finish before the HVAC repair.
I've discovered that either the laptop doesn't like PS/2 keyboards plugged into USB adapters, or the particular adapter I have is bad. A straight USB keyboard works just fine, as I learned while giving Narbacular Drop another go. I got as far as Very Vertical but figured that was probably enough. Shame there's no way to save. I might have played something else, like Folklore (what else?), but I picked Airplane to watch during golf, with the commentary on, and when that was over, it was time for South Park. Sure, they're reruns, but I missed them the first time.

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!")
