They refilled part of the Gatorade machine. The top two rows, where the Lipton teas are, were restocked, and the left halves of most of the lower shelves (Aquafina Alive water beverage, the orange Gatorade) were refilled, and the Frappuccinos were untouched... but there's a bottle of water from an upper shelf lying on its side on the bottom row, and they left that there. Why? Why would they do that? It makes no sense! Every time it seems like I may have this machine figured out, they surprise me.


Today's Bridge: It started off swimmingly, until Dan decided to bid 7D over Paul's diamond pre-empt. Yes... one opponent holds six trump, and Dan thinks he can make a grand slam. I wouldn't mind so much, but my suit was clubs, so I couldn't even change suits. That put us so far behind that, with seven hearts to the A-K-Q-J on the last hand, I bid 6H instead of 4H, and when Paul bid an impossible 6S over it, Dan went to 7H. Doubling 6S wouldn't have been quite enough, but a two-trick doubled vulnerable set would have helped.

Today's Work: I'm getting things done as best I can without the inputs I need. I haven't even heard from that team yet this week. Still no testing... since this is the build where we cut off adding functionality and transition to bug-fixing mode, it makes sense to me that they want us to put in as much stuff as we can, regardless of how well it works, so we can fix it later. It sounds stupid, but that's this project's management for you.

Today's Gaming: Nothing but Blue Dragon... I don't expect to find any of the secrets I'm looking for, but I'm finding some neat stuff and buillding my characters to the ranks I want them to have. The problem is that most of the new stuff I find is worthless... I found what appears to be a rare necklace, but everyone in my party is already wearing a better one. Well, there's still at least a little bit more to explore.

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!")
