Dodge save the Queen First Place 6th annual Budd Cup Champions! Oi Oi Oi! Thanks for sending Tim! I forgot that our victory bottle of champers exploded up my face for taking one for the dodgesavelequeens team and embarking on the first sip out of the bottle. Tres Punk. Digging the PSH photobomb and that superhero we smote upon thy ruin in Sudden Death. Lolz Strombo has a question for Tim. That’s funny I didn’t even notice he was playing in jeans but anyway nevermind all that FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!

Anger problems? What ever are you guys talking about?

Bitches I’m zen. Ha. Howdy! Happy SOS (Strung out Sunday) We had an early night last night and I woke up to all these party people wanting to party, wahh. I didn’t go to charity arm wrestling last night because I think more sore limbs from physical combat donation would mess up this week for me ha. Also a four year old girl could beat me in arm wrestling. I need to get stronger before I can publicly humiliate myself (again). Life’s a journey, people!

Dodge this! (I think he did lol).

Ya can’t catch me I’m the blonde punky brewster. Nyuk nyuk nyuk.

I’m sorry but you brought this on yourself.

My arm today is sore but surprisingly not so much. I do weights often so it’s ok doke. Legs are another story, guy I lazy in the winter.

Ha me wimping out. One guy was doing Stalin intimidation tactics, pick a victim and three balls at once is quite effective on your psyche.


Pink Blondie shirt was one of our team ringers, def in running for MVP.

That’s it I am throwing some Ramones on. Someone said I look like the Ramones blond drag version. Cool why not. My brother said that too, especially when my hair was black. I should print out every internet burn on me in to a book and give it to him for his birthday ahaha.

Colleague showed up to take photos for a bit. He got slammed in the head with a ball from behind bouncing off a wall and it exploded his glasses right off his head in an arc to the ground, warping them and his eyes instantly welled up red and teary and barely anyone noticed. I bet he regretted ever showing up lol but it was pretty punk.

He wore his NEW YORK FUCKIN CITY shirt especially.

Not to be a sadist or anything but seeing and hearing people get hit by balls all day long was straight up hilarious, they didn’t at all hurt if you could avoid them in the face. I only got body shots, legs, bare legs and loud slaps I wonder how many secret boners occurred haha.

There were tons of cute girls in all kinds of nerd crush bait costumes, hipsters galore and fit jocks it’s an overload to the senses and afterward we all go to the bedford to get loaded and eat carbs. I got a bad burn on my wrist from my samosa, those things are steamy!

We were very punk. I started the Oi-ing and when we’d wipe out or that one guy just fell in to us a big pile of punks it was amusing I am sure for one and all. I laughed my ass of all day long. They played the Ramones for us in the final game and that was a big help in our victory, plus we just wouldn’t lose. If other teams paid more attention they’d know to definitely win certain games against us. Total sleepers we was. Gear!

One of my gloves is gone but I could not play with wearing one on my right hand. I think people should stay in their full costumes, it’s kind of cheaty to remove your accessories which is what everyone does once the rageball takes a hold of their competitive nature. I think this Budd Cup was the least competitive one yet and it was still pretty damn lethal I’d say, myself included.

But I don’t cheat, and we saw a lot of cheaters, like one guy getting 4 balls rained on him at once and he acted like he didn’t get hit and no one said anything so he kept playing and we were like how in the fuck did you not just get hit there dude, bullshit. But cheaters never prosper so, guess which team won? It’s for charity and about fun so allowing things to slide yeah okay fine. Chris was like ha Raymi I knew you’d get a win one of these years I was like hey man I have always been #2 and I missed two years in a row and coming back in first place, ain’t too shabby.

Dodgeball is a great sport for me and stress reliever and GIVE ME A GIANT CONTAINER OF BALLS TO CONTINUOUSLY PELT AT YOU. Dekel and I had a bit of practise wherein I whipped a ball at him 20 times in a row ahhhhhhhhh release hahaa. It doesn’t even hurt and I was more so trying to be dramatic and artistic. I really like playing catch too, I’m a tom boy and I have a good arm, throwing ball on the beach or football is fun. Summer I am going to DESTROY YOU.

And you get caught on various sides of the auditorium while games were in play or have to comb the entire building underground passageway labyrinth to make it back to your stuff or team or whatever to find they’re not there but on the other side where you just were. A great day of exercise for sure. White unitard superhero guy (I think they were the comic con team) was the last guy standing against us and he did a few funny poses because everyone was watching and it was his moment. So good.

Some teams appeared to be stacked and full of giants and it was terrifying a lot of the time I almost broke my arm running along a wall and getting my hand caught up in a partition and the sound of the balls hitting the baseboards were so loud and BANG eventually one came right off and we left it off DODGE THE SAVE QUEEN Oi oi Oi! See how much this is going to my head? Everyone else is saying they are adding it to their resumes HAahahahahah Yeah.

I left my hair a mess to stay punk. I fixed it later on.

Too competitive to wear docs or chucks. Teach wore chucks.

Costumes everywhere and it was tres hilar seeing people’s fall apart or do theme poses while being attacked by balls haha good times. What charity was this for again? We donated money and jerk marinade and tuna. Sounds like a party to me!

No future. No future. No future for you.

Most fun to watch play, his dress falling all off and said he looked online for the best thing to stuff with and a girl said bath poofs, she was right! Philip Seymour Hoffman in the dress was really good but injured his leg so sat like an old woman in a wheelchair for the rest of the afternoon. Hilarious. Funny cool people everywhere gettin’ up to hi-jinx it was pure jokes all day long.

See me in my backpack like an adorablah little ant. Yep that is me.

Fashion people, that’s Donatella and they also had a Lagerfeld that we thought looked like Beethoven at some points until Mike only had (or Steve? I can’t keep the Budd boys straight) his tie left and fake collar.

We are under attack.

And Kid Rock guy avoids?

Lets try it again.

And Nancy dodges!

Leopard leopard!

Three on one bullies.

Got it.

Here I come.

Also my roots are coming in so things are going to look a little more Spungen around here. Teacher was like and this was an outfit you had planned to wear today anyway ahahah yeah I made it from scraps laying around.

That’s my arch ringer nemesis from years ago (and friend too lol). He didn’t draft me because he didn’t know if I’d show this year and looky loo I am back from the dead hombre. Next year we can be on the same team. I didn’t mind leaving it up to random fate/chance the draft. Chris said they put all the names out on a pool table, based on experience and skill. Oh man I’d have liked a picture of that drunky sports fantasy football team/Churchill moment in time and I guess they made the right choice because our team ruled. Look he’s waving to people it would have been funny for everyone if I threw that ball right. Despite popular belief I am not actually an asshole though.

I was a gentleman and stopped myself and saved the ball for someone else as he is obvi out now but sometimes people just launch it anyway to get someone for a bonus JUST IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW IT YOU ARE SO FUCKING OUT NOW hahahhaa.

Sometimes mid throw someone will yell stop, for you to save it for a triple assault. I think half the time you should just let nature occur because you took a bit of rageball power away from that READY TO GO throw, you know? A successful dodgeballer should not ever doubt themselves or think, just act and be courageous and confident and focus all of that energy from the bottom of your soul and direct it all to one place, as far and as hard and as fast as you can, and keep it below the neck. Oh I will show you romanticizing sports, Moneyball. Ps. thanks Chris for all of this and for keeping the Budd Cup tradition going for all these years!

Get him.

I mean seriously now how can you possibly beat a team of floating players. We were actually X-Men in disguise, fooled you’s.

In elem school track and field, shot put was my ONE THING other than high jump (and long jump) that I prevailed in, so yeah, when I say go long I MEAN IT. Christ!

Good gamesies after each match then you keep going in a circle after the long line and high five your whole team. I am easily delightible.

Too bad Lagerfeld lost his wig behind teach there. I want to know which team won best costumes, best chick and best dude.

Plenty of blond wigs in yesterday too, it made me blush a little bit Ha.

Just another day in the life of Raymbot.

Whackity whack that is that!

Ok so sometimes I care about stuff other than myself so listen up

tristan is in orange, ace is in yellow, owen is in green. the mutt, nina, is not ours (thank god)… no offence, nina.

thats the makings of a tv show right there.

So, this cool chick facebooked me the other day about a hamilton party thing, coincidentally I was going through my FB messages today to catch up on all the ones I miss as it’s like Beatlemania fan mail somedays ’round here.

(raymi@raymitheminx.com lol).

Anyhooters, I get this email from her today that kind of sparks our FB chat that you will read following her email (Which is mass-forwarded and therefore horribly formatted):

> I’m participating in 2011 CN Edge Walk. I will be Facing MY Fear and taking a step out on the edge as I walk around the OUTSIDE of the CN Tower for AboutFace!
> ‘Face Your Fear’ is being hosted by AboutFace to raise money and awareness for Camp Trailblazers: a retreat for kids ages 10 to 18 who have facial differences.
> Many of these kids will meet other kids like themselves for the first time. At Camp Trailblazers, they will learn life skills, challenge themselves to overcome physical barriers, and create life long friendships. To learn more about Camp Trailblazers and the event visit www.aboutface.ca
> You can help support me by making a secure online donation using your credit card. Click on the link below:
> Thanks for your support!

THIS MADE ME FEEL JEALOUS AND INSPIRED. TWO FAVOURITE THINGS. No, well, I want to do this CN Tower walk too but I am already in the middle of so many other things blabbity blah, also kind of probably totally terrified, but mostly don’t have the time to campaign for donations in order to do it, what’s more, I don’t have triplets with cleft palets so I would be an asshole to campaign over Jenn now that she showed up on my radar. Hoping to marry our two adrenaline junky wants together to form a super-power awareness so we can walk the edge and you can give her all the money and I just get to dangle 1,815.4 ft and faint at 1,815.4 ft just so I can say that I did. It will be just like what I did on Saturday at Brickworks except 1,685 feet SCARIER. One day I will call for donations to climb up the CN Tower stairs though. We have 4 sets of stairs in this townhouse, sometimes climbing them just once in a day is enough to make me wheeze a little. BAD SIGN!


thinking you should come to supercrawl in grimy, ol’ hamilton today. all day art and bands and loveliness.


Raymi Lauren White:

i just tweet noticed a girl talking about it. i am already crush f-cked all over again from last night. do you live there? my godmother has a resto, a nice italian one, tracadaros? anyway ill be in the hammer soon.


yep… i live there. trocadero! that place is a hamilton fixture. i’ve never eaten there, but i think i should- i’ve heard great things about it. thinking of you on this 9/11. i can hardly bear to watch the footage on tv. can’t imagine what it was like to witness it firsthand. that kind of thing changes a person forever.

Raymi Lauren White

aw i missed this sorry for delay. i havent eaten at trocadero (my godmother’s restaurant in hamilton) yet either cant wait. theres a delay in opening it cos one of the cooks injured her hand aw. just got yer cn tower email thing i totally wanted to do that. how do i get in as an ambassador w/o having to do the charity crap part to raise awareness for all involved?


i only found out about it because my triplets were all born with cleft lips (they figure it was some sort of fluke when the egg divided so many times). the organization offers support and resources for families of kids with all varieties of facial differences. you could try emailing someone there. jessica is the manager of marketing and outreach, so maybe start there: jessica@********

i am terrified of doing it. they give a breathalyzer before to make sure you’re not tanked, otherwise i’d have a few for sure.

Raymi Lauren White

omg i would smoke a billion doobs. triplets! cleft lips! you saint and inspiration. ill make a donation pitch on my blog for you then. when does it happen?


awww, you are sweet. it’s october 28. i think any other info would be on the email i sent with pledge link etc. it’s strange with my kids, too, since they are indentical, but they have their clefts in different places. tristan had a complete one on the left side with a cleft palate, owen had an incomplete one on the right, and ace had an incomplete one in the middle. strangely enough, the locations are indentical with their position in utero. we are so lucky that their clefts are only a cosmetic problem and they had no associated syndrome. they are smart as whips and creative as can be. their surgeon was amazing, and some people don’t even notice, but it breaks your heart as a mother when your kids stare at themselves in the mirror and ask why their lips aren’t shaped like other kids in their class. anyway… typical mother ramble. did you want me to send you a photo of the turkeys? many mercis.

Raymi Lauren White

what are the associated syndromes? joaquin phoenix has/had one. you should write to him, and then get him to have sex with me. deal! and yeah barely noticeable. will be considered hot when they’re older, just dont let them turn into dorks. should i make a dont let them turn into dorks work shop?


nah… no anti-dork workshop. i think you should have a workshop for men who are already dorks and spin ‘em into cool dudes.

yeah, there are tons of crazy genetic syndromes that have clefts as a ‘feature’. we are so thankful that for our dudes it’s just a fluke… strictly cosmetic. it’s crazy how common it is, too, and how many misconceptions there are associated with it. when they were babies, some salty broad at the grocery store asked if their brains were ok. i nearly decked her. anyway. i’m sure joaquin phoenix would love to have sex with you.

Raymi Lauren White

better idea. your disposition in general despite having 400 joaquin phoenix clones is f-ing adorable. this is how we will get donations for you by exploiting this talk, having senses of humour is the last phone call to a friend i have from killing myself some days. you’re alright buddy.


GIVE THIS WOMAN WHO HAS THREE BOYS (WORTHY ENOUGH OF DONATIONS) SOME MONEY (for aboutface, her charity) SO SHE CAN DO SOMETHING INSANE AND THEREFORE MAKE IT ALL WORTH IT. I AM GOING TO HARASS JESSICA TO LET ME IN ON THIS TOO COS I SURE AS HELL ok I’ll stop yelling, I sure as hell am not having triplets in time to get you to care about me, like I need money to hang on to a building, I’ll do it for free hahaha. Help me spread the word too, you know I love you, tell me what you want, I’ll give you some of my toys or send you to a concert, or design a date, get you laid, maybe even continue blogging so you have something to read at work tomorrow.

XO Your pal Raymbo.

(pretty sure if I go through with this my dad will faint. I made a hot air balloon ride joke once and he could not handle it). (hi dad miss you!)

I know I could never jump out of a plane, the feeling of falling would seriously make me be blacked out all the way down and my jump partner would be like cradling a baby. Boring and embarrassing. With the edge walk you’d be forced to be lucid the whole way through. This just got real.

Ps. Jenn did not ask me to do this post either. I like to call this MODERN WARFARE ON CHARITY. I think we all need to man up and start givin’ a care and if it takes (and it does) crazy stunts to get money out of people for honest to goodness causes then by all means, throw me in a lion pit, I’ll do it. Jenn’s spirit regarding her boys is what moved me most of all. I feel like the majority of people (or the perception of them) with some kind of physical handicap or disability or a child with one, they seem lobotomized or neurotic, uptight, un-fun, and Jenn seems funner than a lot of people I love more than myself, right? People with no reason for chips on their shoulders and such. Role model material that girl is.

Thank you so much for the donates in advance!

you crack me up. your post is grand… only one small correction that doesn’t matter much anyway, but all 3 had cleft lips, only 1 had the cleft palate, as well. no matter, really. what i like is that you’re helping bring awareness to such a great organization. aboutface was a wealth of resources for my husband and i when we first started on this adventure. there are so many kids who suffer from self-esteem issues etc based on their facial differences, and it warms my heart to think that there is a camp where they can go to feel just like their peers. aboutface also educates on syndromes such as apert, crouzon, and non-syndromic conditions such as hemangiomas. education breeds acceptance, i always say. can i cheer about them more?

and honestly your kids are cute as hell so good luck with people sympathizing ;)

omg i picture me and joaquin floating on clouds in gladiator outfits (from his movie) and your boys as our golden floating cherubs. gahahaha.
