Today's Bridge: I managed to get a seat, and Dan and I got the best of the hands - the opponents faced some awful trump splits, while we got several game hands - I declared 5D with S x H A-J-x-x D A-Q-x-x-x C A-x-x or so to Dan's S A-Q-x-x-x H Q D J-10-x-x C J-x-x. The king of trump fell singleton, and I think I pulled two rounds, then crossruffed, giving up only one club somehow. I also declared a 4H over Mike's 4C when Dan had K-Q-J-x-x of clubs - a doomed contract, but since Dan didn't double, I was compelled to bid 4H. It was makeable, but I'd have had to play for the king singleton again, and I didn't. I botched the defense in one hand when I had Q-10-9-x of trump over the board's jack and long hearts - had I thrown hearts at every lead, I might have set myself up a long trump at the end. We still set them, but I think there was at least one more trick in it.

Today's Work: I picked a list of tickets to review and got them all done. I also read the documentation for the other project, so I've got an idea of what I'll need to do. After the kind of morning I had, where I felt sick the whole time, but not quite sick enough to stay home, it was nice to have a good day at work.

I watched the first episode of The Keys of Marinus last night. I guess it didn't take them very long to resort to teleportation to move the characters around, did 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!")
