BLACKOUT 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO, OR, BETA-7: 1, LAMP: 0
DAMMIT! I think I'm losing my mind. Like serious, mental meltdown type stuff...
Today starts out just fine, easy day at work. I get home, chill, kick back with a little Halo...and then it happens.
I hear, "Dude, what the hell are you doing?!?" I open my eyes and I'm on the floor with the halogen lamp knocked over on the floor under me, and Jeremy is screaming at me, "Dude, what the hell, man, I just bought that lamp!"
I look up at him, feeling all groggy/post-wisdom-teeth again and he can tell I'm freaked. All of a sudden I burst out crying like a little girl lost in the mall or something, and I don't even know why. I think Jeremy was kind of weirded out. Definitely weirded me out.
He punches me in the arm and is all like, screw Karen man, she's a bitch anyway, your a cool guy and you could do a lot better anyhow, etc. He tells me not to worry about the lamp, it probably just needs a new bulb, and hey, at least I didn't mess up the tv, right? I'm too exausted and groggy to tell him what's really going on, so I just kind of chuckle and say yeah man, sorry about the lamp.
I really feel like I should tell somebody about this, but who? The police? That wouldn't work, cuz if anything, the guy at the game testing place would just tell them I'm the one who freaked out and went all postal on thenm and I'M the one who should be arrested. A doctor? Besides the $$$ issue, where would I even start? A medical doctor? A psychologist? What kind of doctor even handles this type of crap?? They'd probably just tell me I'm healthy, in the prime of my life, it's just stress, etc I just know all this wierd stuff has something to do with that beta testing place, but I can't figure out what. It's driving me crazy, that is, if I'm not crazy already.
