Today's Bridge: I had a couple of biddable hands, at least, but aside from a 4S that I really stretched to bid (and may have been defeatable), I don't think we made any contracts. I had a tough time of a 3H with S 9-x-x-x H A-K-9-5 D x-x C K-x-x facing Mike's S A-J H Q-J D A-x-x-x-x C J-x-x-x. I lucked out because neither opponent was willing to lead trump, so I got a crossruff, and Paul had long enough clubs that I was able to ruff the last one with the 5. Unfortunately, we got stuck in 3D in the final hand, which was even worse, and I misplayed it to end up off four instead of off three. On the plus side, we set Paul's 1C. They had a much better fit elsewhere.

Today's Work: The meeting went better than expected. The test I thought was going to be this Friday will actually be next Friday - we're still testing everything this week, but we won't be using the device I'm supposed to talk to, so I don't know how much we can do with it. I also don't have to make my own GUI - I spent today writing the interface document to hand to another team, which will do the GUI. I got the draft done and came home without doing any overtime - if they're going to make me go in on Saturdays, I think I can back off on overtime the rest of the week. That gives me time to watch some videos and streams in the evenings, and possibly work on my videos, although I'm spending enough time tonight catching up to last night (and ultimately falling short, I expect) that my videos will have to wait until another night.

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!")
