Well, I survived that (but not intact...) The stitches have gotten all dry and bristly today, so I've removed a few that seemed to be hitting nerves. Only the ones around the bits that seem to be closed up properly. And they're getting ready to come out by themselves, anyway.
Been off work for the rest of the week, just on the computer playing System Shock 2. That's really an amazing game, and you can really see a lot of Deus Ex in it, with a lot of Thief and Half Life thrown in. Only cost me 13 bucks too!
