(no subject) @ 11:28 am

Internet connection at work is sluggish at best today, dropping out completely for 10-15 minutes at least once so far. Of course it's Payroll Friday, centralized records require an internet connection to access our time clock data. Yeah, it's gonna be a long day.

My headphones also died some time overnight, left side's dead when I put them on this morning. Which led to a discovery ... I've got some hearing loss on my right side. I turned the player up to hear it clearly through the right channel, played around a little to see if I could fix them (not reliably), at one point switched the good speaker to my left ear - and suddenly it was WAY TOO LOUD, so loud I jerked it back out from reflex. Not too surprising, I had a punctured eardrum on one side as a kid and my mom's deaf in one ear, I just couldn't remember which side.

I don't think being deaf in one particular ear is hereditary. :-)

I could've sworn Mom said hers was a birth defect (malformed / fused bones on one side) but that could have been caused by something in utero rather than a genetic mutation I suppose.
