Talk Like a Pirate Day

I watched an episode of Spaceballs: The Animated Series on YouTube the other day, before it was removed. It was okay, but like most of Mel Brooks' work, there were a lot of jokes that really didn't work, and some were beaten into the ground until they were senseless. Not worth the DVD-Rs, but probably good for a viewing. I'd stream it through an ad-blocker.

Progress? Shame it's still not "official"

Today's Bridge: I wasn't even in it today, but Keith got my spot, and had a 2C opener. It turned out to be good for a slam in hearts, but I don't know whether it was guaranteed enough to be biddable. Considering that Mike was his partner, I guess it must not have been.

Today's Work: We had a meeting where, for once, someone outside the software team agreed with us when we said some things would take too much work to be worth doing. As our software lead pointed out, everyone else involved with the project hates us because we're always realistic about how much we can and can't do, while everyone else likes to believe in the magical code fairy. So we're trying to get systems engineering on our side so someone other than us will be arguing in favor of doing fewer things and doing them better. So far, so good.

Today's Gaming: More La Tale... I'm hoping the constant upgrades will improve the service. HA! I've had to buy a few things, including a dagger and a skirt, but my wizard is getting into fighting shape at last. Hopefully a bit more God of War after I finish this entry, although I want to put some more serious time into Shadows of the Colossus to try finishing that, or at least figuring out a bit more, or maybe just continuing the new game I started last weekend.

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!")
