Today's Bridge: We were doing pretty well, aside from failing to double a doomed spade contract, until the last hand. Steve overcalled CP's 2C opener with 3C, and I had two little clubs and four hearts to the Q-J, so I bid 3H. He had one heart and left it. We recommended 4C as a response, which I'd have passed. He had K-Q-J-10-x-x of clubs, so we figured we'd probably be off three in 4C as opposed to a hard-fought off five in 3H. We had to deal with a killer crossruff AND all their power.

We've got ants again. We'll have to hit one of the big stores and buy more traps soon. I guess it's been almost six months... more like four and a week, but it was a pretty big problem at the time. Maybe we need something better than traps.

House season 3 looks like more of the same in some ways, which isn't a bad thing. I expect House will be back to his old self by the end of the month, or mid-season at the latest. I think what's really changed is everyone else's attitude toward him. I'm watching Standoff now, and planning to post this before it's over. It's interesting, like the other new Fox shows I've bothered to watch. Looks rather controversial, both internally and because it features a pilot episode about an Islamic terrorist. But it looks like he just took up Islam for the terrorism. I think the most interesting thing about this show will be seeing how they make more episodes from the premise.

I watched the second Strong Bad E-mails DVD today. The bonus E-mails on the first DVD were fun, but this one featured something possibly even better... karaoke. And on the second audio track, Homestar characters singing karaoke. Homestar sings the Trogdor theme, Strong Bad sings Because It's Midnite, Coach Z sings the Dangeresque theme ("Dangerearuourereeareoursque"), and of all people, Marzipan sings Everybody to the Limit (Fhqwghads). I also left the menu screens sitting for a while... the results of that are just as much fun. The downside is that I couldn't figure out how to get to some of the easter eggs, like the scene with Strong Mad and Strong Sad at the end of "caper". I was sad to miss that.
