Intervals and assault.

January 8, 2009


I was gonna do an exercise video in the office at lunchtime, but it looked pretty nice out — rather than the crazy-ass torrential rainstorm it has been — so I changed and walked with the boss-lady over to the post office and then headed south.  I wandered at a pretty quick pace around the campus, running for about a minute, then walking for about three.  (I’m a pansy-ass, I don’t do real intervals, but I wanted to get my heart rate up.)  It started dumping like a motherfucker about, oh, as soon as I walked away from the boss-lady.  Of course, now that I’m back in the office, it’s all sunny and pretty.  Fine, Mother Nature.  I see how it is.

Anyhow, I did my ghetto-version inverted intervals all the way around campus, for a total of about two miles in about thirty minutes.  In the rain?  For an out-of-shape girl like me?  I are champion.

I got back to the office and looked in the boss-lady’s mirror and HAY-SEUSS CHRIST was I a sexy beast.  My clothes were pretty much soaked through, and my hair was (is) all wet and plastered to my head, and my eyes were bugging out, and my face and chest (and rest of me, but you know… clothes) were all red and blotchy and angry-looking.  WHOO.  I am currently the most majestic saturated muppet-girl you’ve seen in weeks.  Also, my back hurts.  Waaaaaah.


On Wednesday evening, January 7th, at approximately 8:30 p.m. a female
University student was assaulted while walking north on Avenue South.  The student fought back with her fists and umbrella while screaming for assistance, as the suspect grabbed her by the waist and tried to pull her to the ground.  After a brief struggle, the assailant fled south on Avenue and then east on Street.  The victim reported no injuries.

Shit.  This is like, the fifth time this has happened this school year.  All the assailants are described differently, so it’s probably not one single jerk dude harassing everybody — several jerk dudes, rather.  One of these days somethng really shitty is going to happen and WHAT THEN.  Our campus security is populated by real tools — some good, conscientious students, yes, but not many, and they are rarely the ones responding to the calls.

Another good reason to work out: to punch the rapists in the face.
