    YET ANOTHER ACCOMPLISHMENT FOR ME TODAY!
    riding home from work some fucking jackass makes eye contact with me, then full on tackles me (well, he ran into me with his arms out, as if preparing to make contact) i go down hard tearing up my elbow, shoulder, and knee and yell at him 'WHAT THE FUCK! YOU TACKLED ME!', to which he responds 'yes...they called me' and runs off into the BU science building

    i'm riding home from work to get ready to go to the track yesterday. i'm heading outbound on comm ave right after kenmore (at sherborn st). one lane is blocked off because of the BU-tification and for work on the T. there's a steady line of cars in front of me, some turning right onto sherborn, some staying straight on comm. i'm moving with the pace of traffic and about 10ft behind the car in front of me, and about 100ft ahead of the car in back of me. when i'm approaching the comm/sherborn intersection this kid makes eye contact with me and steps off the curb. then he puts his arms infront of him and just bolts fell speed across the intersection whereupon he sort of shoves/sort of hugs/sort of tackles me. i go down hard with him on top of me, sliding on the fresh asphalt for about 10ft. he pops right up like nothing happened and starts walking away, so i just yell 'what the fuck! you tackled me!' (i have a tendency to state the obvious whenever i'm hit). he starts walking away quicker and says something along the lines of 'yes, i know...they called me, i need to go' and goes running into the BU science/physics building at like 550-600comm.
    he was of average weight, around 5'9-10, glasses, asian-looking, cargo shorts, backpack, and an italian football jersey. he looked kinda nerdy but not full on or anything.

    my left knee took it pretty bad, as did my left elbow. my left shoulder got a little road burn, and my thighs got pretty black and blue. i went home, tried to figure out what was dirt, asphalt, sweat, running blood, blood that had already tried, etc. i ended sorting all that out; cleaned and bandaged everything, and went off to the track.

    So I took a dodgeball to the face this evening and now my military-issue eyeglasses are irreparably broken.

    But I made it home to Ten Hills all the way from JP in the dark without being able to see.

    And I got a closet full of replacement frames.


    No Skin Off My Nose (except for the cosmetic scar at the point of impact).

    gar i was going to go to that dodgeball! but i got to ian's shop later than i expected and i would have had to go from lower allston to jp to allston in an hour and a half for not-entirely-guaranteed dodgeball festivities. i tried to call kevin but opted not to go after there was no response.

    now i wish i didn't punk out.

    i got hit on asked for my digits by this dude outside of the coolidge corner trader joe's tonight.



    he started out by commenting on my leg tattoo, and then after checking out my bike and such went on to call me a "warrior woman", tell me that i should have someone to "pamper me", and offered to take me out for coffee, buy me dinner, massage my feet, or let me kick him in the balls. apparently the last one has something to do with him being an accomplished martial artist?

    "David has been teaching Jiu Jitsu, MMA and fitness for over a decade. His studies include a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu earned in 2003, time spent in Thailand for Muay Thai, and extensive exposure to boxing and wrestling. He has trained at numerous Gracie schools and in Brazil with Dela Riva and BTT --many of the pioneers of Jiu Jitsu and MMA.

    In addition to numerous NAGA titles and the 1999 New England Gold, David won back-to-back gold medals at the Pan American Games for Jiu Jitsu in 2002 and 2003. In 2004, he was the only American on the podium in his division where he garnered the black belt Silver Medal. He has trained numerous MMA fighters for large shows including the UFC, as well as for local shows."

    he told me i should google him to see if i'm interested.

    i didn't know what to say.

    at first i thought you said that he hit you. i thought, "oh no, another accident for lauren." and then i thought, "what strange compensation." a reread changes the context completely.You're purposefully attempting to sabotage my degree project. Thanks.

    easterns for collegiate mtn are the weekend of october 11th.

    i don't intend to go to nationals.

    so as long as i can convince my parents that giving me some funds to EP a cross bike is an appropriate graduation present, and that i should get it two months prior to graduating...i will hopefully doing my first cross race the weekend of the 18th.

    You silly kids and your not drinking coffee while working in a coffee shop, I never really understood that. I work in one and I drink way too much because of it. Though that should end because I'm done working there as of today.Hey, aren't you a dinosaur?
