We are pleased to hear that the twin lives

Today's Bridge: I remember playing, and having a lengthy discussion with Ken about one of the hands after it was over. I think he led a low heart through Dan's void to mine, forcing me to ruff without pulling a trump from Dan's hand. Not that it necessarily changed the outcome, but I prefer the high heart lead. Dan has to ruff high to avoid an overruff - if he sluffs, I'm free to sluff as well and let Ken's king win the trick. And if he ruffs high, I get a guaranteed trump trick later in the hand, and possibly two, if we can force a ruff from dummy as well.

Today's Work: I showed the task lead what I've done, and he liked it. Shame it's other people who decided it can't be done. That's sad.

Today's Gaming: I just went ahead and finished Phantasmagoria 2... now that it's mostly out of the way (I only bothered to watch one ending), I can put my free time over the weekend to more productive use. Not long until Prince of Persia comes out, so I've got a lot of gaming to do before then.

I've been reading over some of my oldest entries and tagging them as I go... but I don't even remember that lifestyle. Apparently, I used to watch entire anime DVDs at once! I used to lament my supply of unread manga dipping as low as 3 books, and moan because I was falling behind on watching my anime. I would buy DVD 3 of a series and *gasp* not have watched the second one yet! There was only one person commenting on my entries, and I have no idea who they are. Probably someone who changed names since and didn't tell me. I was writing enough back then to post excerpts from my stories almost every day, before I started falling out of the habit. Probably largely because nobody ever read them or said anything about them. But I wrote every day, because I didn't want to have another hiatus ever again. It's a rare night anymore when I don't post an entry, and that's almost always because I don't have Internet access. I'll just write the entry, save it, and post it later. And now that I can voice post, even that is no obstacle anymore. But it's weird to think that that was me, five years ago. I probably had a tiny inkling that I'd be here, now, in this situation, but there's one thing I didn't think I'd have... this wonderful collection of friends. Not that I get many comments, but it's not the quantity that matters. Now, at least, I get the impression that people are actually reading my entries. Everything takes on a different tone in that light. I wonder what I would have written back then if I thought anyone would read it...

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!")
