At least I won this game, did not deserve it, but win I did. Interesting that I lost so many pieces to the black diagonal bishop, all blunders.

Alright, and just to drive the point home even further:

I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal. I will never forget my opponents open diagonal.  Ok, punishment over.
