Today's Bridge: I wasn't expecting much, but I got plenty. The hands I played were still pretty tough to make - I usually got an overtrick, but I just got lucky. Playing a 2NT with S x-x-x H x-x D K-J-x-x C A-x-x-x opposite S A-Q-x H Q-x-x-x D A-Q C x-x-x-x was about as much fun as it looks - the last club set up, the spade finesse worked, and the opponents were strangely reluctant to attack hearts at all. Even when I forgot to keep the last club as an entry to my diamonds, the opponents had discarded enough that mine set up. Likewise, I got lucky on our initial 2S, with the trump splitting well and all of the finesses onside, which actually matched the bidding for once. Finally, I got stuck playing 2S again after opening 2C with S A-K-J-x H x-x D A-K-Q C A-x-x-x - not quite 22 points, but I could support any five-card suit and had a couple of very stacked suits. All Dan had was S 10-x-x H K-x-x D x-x-x C x-x-x-x or so - fortunately, Paul had two spades to the queen, so that fell, and I managed to set up a long club so I could use the 10 of spades, cross to a diamond, and pull the last one with the jack, never ruffing anything. In fact, I don't think I had a single hand with an eight-card trump suit. And I still made most of them. We even set the opponents' 1D bid - I had a reasonably strong hand, but my only four-card suit was the A-K-x-x of diamonds. Not a lot I could do with that.

Work was a bit more productive than usual, so nothing much to talk about there. And I spent my evening watching about two hours of raw video, looking for things I want to put in my bonus video. I'm a sad, lonely individual. I did attempt to strike up a conversation, but that went nowhere.

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!")
