I tend to be a bit of a hypocondriac. I read the latest disease in Reader's Digest (which my mom, for reasons I don't quite comprehend, gets me a gift subscription to every year, possibly because she figures I spend lots of time in the crapper and need something to read) and am convinced I'm dying.

At work today, I had to install memory in a couple dozen machines in preperation for the rollout of a new. memory-intensive application. So of course while I'm under someone's desk putting RAM in their machine (I'd say I was RAMing their box, but that sounds dirty), I slammed my head into the top of the desk.

So of course I'm paranoid that I've got a concussion and am going to die. I didn't hit it that hard, and I don't think I really have any symptoms. But I've convinced myself that I do. I do feel a little queasy, but that may be the two oreo brownies, each the size of paperback book, that I had for dessert at lunch, or possibly the slice of sausage and peperoni pizza I ate a few hours later that had been sitting out for about 26 hours. And I do feel a little ringing in my ears - or it could be the amount of fluid in them due to my allergies, or possibly my ceiling fan and the whine of the $10 power supply on my computer. And my head hurts a tiny bit - not nearly as much as when I have a headache, but it hurts a little. Especially if I poke it. Although I have a feeling it would still probably hurt if I poked it, even if I hadn't hit it.

So I'm hoping that I don't go to sleep tonight and never wake up. And if I do die, I hope someone deletes all the pr0n from my computer before my parents come down from NJ to pick up my stuff.

So, your parents ever enjoy this blog? Oh, and what is the last letter in this image supposed to be? (It looks better as a link. The last post didn’t turn out for that reason)

How can you install RAM while being under a desk? I have to unplug the CPU and put it on my workbench/on the desk of the luser before I can even get off the cover. (Wow, that doesn't sound right-ED) Guess I don't have your l33t helpdesk skills.

And because I don't already have enough question marks in this post already, how did the inspection go?
