Extra notes: New haircut. It looks good. It should get me to January or February.

That's how I see personal things like haircuts. Not so much through vain eyes as practical ones. I see clothes the same way, though Kye is slowly changing my mind on that. But I think Conor got to me before she did.

I've got another solid day of writing ahead, which I'll get to after returning from my doctor's appointment. Standard stuff, really: checking my blood test readings; and I'll talk to him about getting rid of a mole on my temple, one that appeared a couple of years ago and is now becoming a nuisance. My face, sad to say, is a mole factory. It's probably from too much exposure to the Colorado sun, under which I languished for almost forty years.
