"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
One less physical representation.

Went to a little emergency care type place this morning and got the staples pulled out of my head. Painless process, and I could have done it myself, but I thought the staples had claws on them. Not the case. They were shaped like little "M"s, which makes sense considering they're meant to hold wounds together until they heal, then be easily removed.

I almost asked to keep them, as a memento, but I decided I have enough scars that I don't a few grams of metal to remind me.

It'll be nice to be able to comb my hair and not get the teeth of the brush caught on the damn things.
