Today's Bridge: I jinxed myself into getting an ace for once. And we turned out a strong performance. Kelly put me into a 3NT contract that seemed impossible, but I pulled it off with an overtrick... very, VERY lucky on splits. The other side answered with a 4H that we couldn't stop, but I sacrificed in 4S with an amazing NINE spades to the king (and no other points in my hand)... and Keith overbid me at 5H, off one doubled. Good job, though... it turns out that we probably make 5S, given that Kelly had just the aces to cover two of my losers and A-x of spades. We ended with a hand that looked good for 6H, but Kelly said she had no aces, so I left it at 5. Good thing, too... we lost the first two spade tricks and took all the rest. I think I actually threw away all four of her clubs into my void. I love ruffing aces and kings.

Today's Work: Pretty boring, but I submitted my travel voucher and worked a little more on that problem that's been nagging me, but I'll really have to trace things carefully before I make any more big changes. Particularly, I need to wait until I can synchronize what I have with our latest changes.

Today's XBox 360 Status: Shipping back to me, fully repaired. So they say. This is awesome. I've also got a shipment of anime and manga coming my way. This, too, is awesome. I should celebrate. But I'll do that when they get here, especially if my 360 is working properly. Infinite Undiscovery at last! I can't wait. But I have to. I should play some Bioshock in the meantime. I'm just enjoying the Psychonauts video too much to quit. What's wrong with me?

At least I leave time to watch Tweeny Witches. Am I the only one who notices that the chorus of the ending theme is The Blue Danube? I hope so... it would be cool if that surprised everyone.

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!")
