Just got mugged

It's just about as much fun as you might imagine. *sigh* Not injured - cuts and bruises. Didn't take anything - just jumped me from behind, hit me a few times, and ran off. *sigh*

My head hurts, my pride hurts, I had to wait two hours in the ER before they would clean the blood off my face, and insult to be-damned-injury, I have to go into work early tomorrow.

There are discrete points in time where life just sucks.

Oh, the few people who have my cell phone number? Don't bother for a bit - think I dropped my phone in the squad car when the cops took my statement. Can reach me by email, work phone, work email, or smoke signals if you're really, really good.

Heh. Would, but your phone numbers are in my cell phone, which has gone walkabout. Hope it's having fun.

Well, as the nice doctor at GW predicted, I feel like I got beat up. Because, well, I did. It's funny how doctors always think they're funny. And they're almost always wrong.

Well, annoying anyway. Mostly the only thing that really hurts is my jaw, which makes swallowing, talking, laughing and eating kind of painful.

The laughing is relevant because one of my paralegals wants to know if she can claim she beat me up so she can up her street cred. Given that she's a 5'0" tiny Jewish girl from South Florida, she doesn't HAVE any street cred.

First - very sorry to hear that. I'm sure it sucks.

Ok man, I have to ask you what kind of person would even TRY to mug you. You aren't exactly a meek looking 5'0" tiny Jewish girl or something. I certainly wouldn't try to beat you up.

No clue. Didn't say anything, didn't ask for money, nothing. Just totally random, and took me totally off guard.

No, just awful. :P

Didn't take anything, but I lost my phone in the aftermath. Which is why I couldn't call you after the news of the hostage thing.

That was actually my second reaction to the whole hostage thing - "Oh, so THIS is how my day could get worse." Sandwiched in between "Oh, shit, please don't let that be Quinn" and "Oh, good, it's New Hampshire."
