You can ground yourself by touching the faucet.

I bought an anti static strap and I prefer building the computer on the dining room table. The floor is carpet though. Will I be ok if I just stand still on the carpet and use my anti static strap?

If you use the anti static strap according to the instructions, you'll be just fine.

I hope it comes w/ instructions cause I have no idea how to wear it. You know, I could just put the table in the kitchen and that way I'll be on tile.

If it doesn't come with instructions, look for some online.

That would be even better to minimize the chance of a static shock. Mind you, you should be safe with the anti-static strap, but you're better safe than sorry, right?
