Today's Bridge: I had a couple of decent hands, and we managed to make a game contract, but I couldn't make 3NT in the final hand to seal the deal. I had S A-J-9 H A-10-x-x D J-x-x C K-x-x and Dan had S K-x-x-x H 9-x-x D K-9-x-x C A-x. I let Ken have the club on the opening lead, and he followed with the king and queen of hearts. I took the second trick and ran the spades, which split. I led a diamond to the king, which held, then cashed the spade and the ace of clubs, exiting with the nine of hearts to Ken's jack. Unfortunately, he had a diamond to lead to Paul. Had I let a diamond trick go, I might have had a chance, although I'd already lost the first two tricks, and that would give up a diamond other than the ace as well as the jack of hearts, so I think I did as well as I could.

Today's Work: Things are actually sort of slowing down, which gives me time to come home and do stuff. Unfortunately, AAA's website sucks. I couldn't get on at all this morning, and when I got home, I discovered that I can't remove an associate member from my account. I'll have to call in from work tomorrow, which I don't like doing, but I don't have a choice. At least I can hopefully renew online once that's done - I don't want to have to give out my credit card number over a cell phone connection in public. At least I know I can handle my taxes and utility bills online, when I have time.

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!")
