Today's Bridge: Amazingly, I got an ace fair and square. Ken made what we all agreed were some questionable bids, but mostly forgivable. Not quite as forgivable was when he opened 1S with only four of them, Mike overcalled 2H, I bid a VERY minimal 2S with K-J-x of support, and he made a completely unforced raise to 3S. Off quite a few, I think, especially when the trump failed to split, letting Mike run his hearts. The opponents had great hands and we had hands that were significantly less great. The most interesting hand was one where Dan opened 2H, I bid 3C in fourth seat, Dan went to 3H, and Ken raised me to 5C with S Q-9-x-x H x-x-x D A C J-x-x-x-x. Even if I do have 16 points (which I didn't... I had about 12, with S A-10-x H J-x-x D x-x C A-K-x-x-x, and only bid because the opponents had a 60 partscore), I think 5 is pushing things quite a bit. I'd anticipate two heart losers and probably a spade loser, just judging by Ken's hand... I think 4C was perfectly appropriate, but I called 5C kamikaze. The hand makes 3, losing three hearts and a spade to Mike's K-J, but Dan didn't claim his heart winners and gave me a heart sluff to hold it to off one.

Today's Gaming: I gave the Internet a rest to play some Infinite Undiscovery. Before I realized it, all my gaming time was used up, and I hadn't done much but run around in the shrine, use up all my healing items, waste most of my magic, and level up once or twice. I made some bat soup, anyway. Wonder whether I'll ever use it.

It's probably a little late for The Adventures of Mello and Near by now.

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!")
