"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."

Taking fire from my safety.

Went out to Tavern on Green last night with the Drexel kids. Not really a fan of that bar, I think, but the nachos were okay and hanging out with fellow meatbags is something I seem to enjoy.

Talked to Nancy for a couple hours last night. Things there certainly seem to be working. I am encouraged. Just got cleared for my remaining vacation days. Hmmm...

Now I just need to get work sorted out a bit more than it is. Just three or four big things need to be done, as well as somehow accomplishing the Move.

The ditto script is being refactored right now. Objectifying it and adding a couple useful features.

Wrote a couple pages of stuff last night. Some continuing in the hotel clerk girl vein, and a couple paragraphs of what felt very, very much like system. The latter isn't very surprising, as I had gone through some of system yesterday afternoon before sending it off to abuse Nancy with.

Mm.
