* The good: several things! New Coworker and I got to know each other today, and I have decided that I like her. She has a good work ethic and rapport with the customers, and furthermore seems like a decent person. YAY! Also, I have found a new-to-me cereal that I am very excited about (well okay, we started serving it as a gluten-free option at work and I bought a box last time I was at the grocery store because I wanted to try it and be able to give an honest opinion if asked whether it was any good) (my boss already told me I'm a dork for not just asking to try some at work, but HI I'M A DORK WHO HAS DELICIOUS CEREAL AT HOME NOW).
* The bad: my back is really unhappy, STILL. Or, perhaps, AGAIN since today was the first day with NO STEROIDS WHATSOEVER. Anyway it's very ouchy and I did not, in fact, go to the gym as planned but instead just took a long, slow walk with Hotter and Bumpus this afternoon, and just now I broke my self-imposed "only ONE pain pill per day so they LAST" rule, because I was miserable.
* The ugly: The Bastard is still a bastard, and I have ceased to Trust The Process. WHAT PROCESS? I see no process in action, just a whole lot of bastardry. No one likes a bastard in the workplace. Sigh.
