Almost a success. Almost.

Today's Bridge: We swept the first rubber pretty quickly, including a 3NT where the opponents just didn't find their power. Paul's hand and mine were a horrible fit - I had S A-x-x-x H A-Q-10 D x-x-x C A-9-x and he had S K-10-x H K-J-3 D K-x C Q-J-8-x-x. I took the opening heart lead with the ace to give myself board entries to the long clubs, then ran a club to the queen, which won. Then I led the jack and ducked it, and Kelly showed out, leaving Dan with the K-10. I cashed the ace, then crossed to the board with a heart and ran another to pull the king. At that point, I had every suit stopped but diamonds, and they couldn't stop me from taking the king if they attacked the suit. They didn't - Dan led a spade, so I won on the board, cashed the club and the heart, led back to my ace of spades to make the contract, and conceded the rest even though I would have won a spade. The rubber was over, so the 30 points didn't matter.

Today's Work; I finished enough of what I was working on to commit it. It compiles, but I didn't have the chance to give it a test run. I can't imagine it would crash going through its old paces, though. We need actual input to test it, and we won't have that until next week. I submitted it, but forgot to turn in a timesheet for next week and my status report. I figure I'll go in for a bit tomorrow just to check E-mail and do those things. It'll also give me a chance to try the alternate route, 37 to 58. I'm told it takes about the same amount of time, despite being a bit longer, which I can believe... 37 has a higher speed limit, and there's no construction down there. I left for work half an hour early today, but they'd closed the road completely for half an hour, so I barely got in any earlier than usual.

Today's Golf: Ice Spa was released today, and I got a -22 in my first run. That may sound impressive, but I botched at least two holes. I should be able to score -24 on a slightly bad day, and -26 should be more than doable. When there are two par 5s that are hole-in-one candidates (WITHOUT getting a miraculous delivery out of an ice trench) and several par 4s that are easy to eagle, -22, which is an excellent score on most courses, seems pretty pathetic.

Today's Gaming: Playing a few of the games on Yoyogames. Good way to kill a few hours.

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!")
