Today's Bridge: Bruce and I had to have a talk after today's session about point ranges for bidding. Between opening 2C with a 15-point hand (I had 17 myself, and we had a 50/50 shot at 6S that turns out not to make) and passing my 1C opener with 12 points and seven spades to the A-Q-J-10(fortunately, I had A-K-Q-J-10-x of clubs - had the clubs split 5-1 and the spades 4-2 instead of vice versa, it would have made 7), we just didn't do very well in the bidding. When he responded 2S to my 1NT, I suspected he was misbidding again and jumped to 3NT to end the auction... and he wanted to continue! But he asked first and was told not to, which is good. I just made the 3 thanks to Paul playing the king of spades on the first trick, setting up the board's queen. It was very settable, particularly with a club lead knocking out my ace early.

Today's Work: A big meeting about where we go from here, and a list of the problems we need to work on. I spent the day brainstorming about one of the biggies, but haven't found anything obvious yet.

Today's La Tale: I logged in just to get some screenshots of my character before she's deleted, and noticed that I'd never used the Crystal Mine Ticket I got some time ago. This being the last day, I elected to use it. It was a pretty profitable venture, despite my ISP sucking and getting me logged out with 20 minutes to go. I already had three 30-minute tickets and a bunch of equipment, some of which was very useful - a quadruply enchanted Plastic Shield and a Plastic Shield II with three of the same enchantments, plus an enchanted Water Bronze Piece and a pair of Plastic Gloves. Excellent opportunity, if I ever get a ticket in the actual game.

Today's Meme: I'm not supposed to tell you the questions unless you choose to do the meme yourself, in which case you'll get an LJ private message with them. I just list the answers, and I'll handle this one as seriously as I can given the nature of the meme, but you guys know me.

No answers for you! Unless you click here.Collapse )

So there you have it. I'll work on the memorial picture for Nida when I get the chance, but for now, I think it's game time.

Yes, the Bush Administration is butthurt.

I didn't even pay much attention to what this article is about, but you have to read it. Trust me... pay a little attention and you'll get some of the greatest laughs ever. I can't tell whether it's intentional or not... but I sure hope so.

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!")
