My prediction for the Palin debate tonight



"I THINK PEOPLE SHOULD STOP BEING POOR AND MAKE BETTER... FINANCIAL... DECISIONS! LIKE DECIDING TO 'AVE MONEY INSTEAD OF BEING SKINT!" (hits head with bricks)

However, given what Mom and I talked about last night, this seems like a much more sensible prediction.

I watched a debate.

Today's Bridge: This time, we had something to work with. It's always a good feeling, especially when I actually manage to make a 1NT contract. I had S J-x-x H K-J D A-10-x-x-x C K-J-x to work with, and Raymond offered me S Q-10-x H A-10-x-x D K-x-x C x-x-x. It's a decent layout, especially when Mike chose to lead a heart. I got the jack, then attacked diamonds with a lead to the king and back to the ace... and Ken showed out. Good news for me... I wanted Mike leading. So I threw him a diamond, and lead he did, a heart to my king. Another diamond, another heart to my ace, pulling Ken's queen at last. So I cashed the ten and ran a club to Ken's queen, my king, and Mike's ace. He threw me a club, so I took my jack, cashed the ten of diamonds at last, and effectively conceded the rest. Mike jumped to 6D in the final hand, and Ken led low from his A-9-x of spades to the board's singleton 8, giving us a fourth trick. Three were guaranteed.

Today's Work: I made some big strides on the client side of things. That's about it.

Today's Gaming: I didn't want to get too distracted during the debate, so I popped in Sands of Time. Got about halfway through.

The debate: I admit that neither candidate screwed up as much as expected, but Sarah Palin sure dodged some questions... many of the commenters on NBC considered that a good point. Eh? Anyway, here's how I read each side's points:

Biden: McCain has a policy of disagreeing with himself, and making sure he ends up at the wrong decision. I believe in everything Barack Obama says, and want to have his babies, except that I don't believe in gay "marriage".

Palin: It's a bit big.Collapse )

I has a savvy of the politic.

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!")
