BONUS: i got my year review. i got a 40 cent raise. i was hoping for a quarter, because i know that they hired me on at more than most people make (i've heard coworkers talk about how much they hate working at minimum wage and how the only raise they've gotten was when they raised the minimum wage. i just say 'oh?' and keep my mouth shut.)

scott must really like me.

actually, i am EXTREMELY happy i was able to talk him into doing my year review. we sat in the office and joked around about office max and coworkers in general. he said he was going to miss me (and a few of the others...) he talked about how igor tried to hug him twice since he's worked there.

his last day is thursday, when Random Guy From Oklahoma, USA will be coming in to replace him.

ANTIBONUS: i somehow hurt my back. i wasn't DOING anything, just... reached ... for something, and WHAM! NO, the pop supergroup from the 80's featuring George Michael did NOT come in to wake me before they went went, i just started having... massive... MASSIVE.. spasms. (did i mention they were MASSIVE?) i could barely breathe, it hurt so bad. i couldnt reach for anything, i couldn't lift anything, i certainly couldn't bend over. (i had a coworker look at me as if i had drooled a smurf out of my nose when i called her over frantically to hand me... a gift card, less than a foot away from my hand.) the spasm finally left, but i still felt .. tense.

eventually, the spasm returned, with a VENGEANCE. it was at the end of one of these massive spasms that i hear 'are you AUBKABOB?!?!' i instantly look up and almost say 'who ARE you?!?!?!', but it was indeed my dearest kimie! i was excited to meet her finally, though she could probably not tell, as i was practically gasping for air and acting like the little 70 page spiral notebook she was buying weighed half a ton. i also looked like doodie today, and was sufficiently hungover enough to probably get passersby drunk off of the fumes wafting off of me. but YAY! I GOT TO MEET KIMIE!

hee hee.

so after work, and after waiting for EVAR for mom's boyfriend to come pick me up, i headed to Urgent Care. by this point, i was in so much pain that i almost had to have them fill out the form FOR me, because my arm was practically jerking with shooting pains.

i discovered, after a 3 hour visit, that you can basically go into Urgent Care and say 'ow. my backy hurts.' and they say 'okay! here's a doc's note to stay out... how long did you want to camp out at home? okay, good. and have some valium.'

so i get tomorrow off of work, and get 14 valium to play with.

though i couldn't get them tonight because the stupid pharmacy was closed due to the holiday. jekrs.

so, though i know it's wrong and evil to do so, mommy gave me a percodan? whatever. it was a little yellow pill.

and i think it's taking effect.

Woof. Serious pain meds.

Hope the urgent care does not cost too much.

::obvious plug:: have you tried a chiropractor? It's not witch doctor stuff, really.

i was IN LOVE with my chiropractor in phoenix, would visit him thrice a week. i'm so wishing i had the extra moula to go, as it generally runs $25 to $40 an adjustment, and i'm pretty sure that my medical doesn't cover it.

Congratulations on the review and the raise. Sorry that the boss you got along with well is leaving and for all the shooting spasms of pain.

thanks so much hun :)

the new manager is SOOOOOOOO freaking laid back, meaning he seems to be sleeping half the time, and disappears often, but he has this weird OBSESSION for OBLITERATING all clutter. all of it.

a week after he was there, he completely through out almost EVERYTHING in the manager's office and in receiving. frightening, really.

no one can find a thing.

hooray, thank you!

i get approx. $54 in back pay for the $.40 an hour they didn't pay me from my exact year anniversary, which isn't TOO shabby for a cumulative quarter and a half-ish an hour.

it should FINALLY show up on this durnded paycheck.

it had BETTER. *shines up her baseball bat*

Hm. How stereotypical, celebrate your raise by spending the new money on drugs. :)

Seriously though, congrats on the raise and bummer on the back thing. Back pain sucks much butt.

I'm confused, was EverCrack your gateway drug to Valium?

Actually, I'm just trying to be silly. Sorry to hear about the spasms, I'd virtually hug you if it wouldn't be a major ouchie.
