that was cool back when i did it

I super wanted these flamingo peach pink ear muffs but I’d never wear them, but I wanted them just in case I need to wear them. Do you have irrational clothing thoughts/instances like that ever?

I went with this fun mix-up of Anna Sui perfumes, the purple one I tried in store and it’s lovely. As for the rest fingers crossed. I maxed out all my potions so it was time to replace plus I’ll probably give one to my niece.

Between scent sampling you sniff coffee beans to neutralize the ol olfactories there gov’na. Crazy neat.

Rocky is a food cat. If you are eating food, he is there. We checked out some Keeping up with the Kardashians – btw you should prob just shorten that to “The Kardashians” just saying as a profesh copywriter and all ;).

I want to get the office hooked on this and I know how to introduce it. Am eating it all day long today btw, and this time no shrimp. It’s just as amaze as Spadina Gardens. I’ve never encountered a place to get it right like Spadina G before ever.

I did not feel up to making decisions today, so I didn’t get the hat although grey beanies are my thing. It’s 3 for 10 or something like that, I’ll save those brain busters for tomorrow when I go out for more work attire. Today I jut wanted fun. The poncho is fun work casual or for if I go on a tequila bender. Aiiiiiieee papi!

Once I slipped into my hipster Mr. Rogers cardigan I got late night narcissitical. Sorry. You have to as a way to overcompensate for whatever thing I was insecure about at the time.

Formal Friday. Shut up. Hee. I have no idea how I am going to top it next week.

A work homie said I dressed like a geek the other day I was like WHAT!? Then they said they were shocked. AHAHHA this is not the offending outfit and I was like dude I have to dress like a geek then someone else backed me on the nerd front and was like yeah it’s cool to dress like a nerd, it’s good, it’s good to dress like one. See I get it. It’s like playing life dress up everyday, no wait, actually is playing life dress up. I like it. Expressing yourself creatively as a creative is manditory in the being awesome department as well as not stunting the creative flow, or process.

This will be over soon. I take pictures for my bf. Yes, lame ones.

But my hair is getting longer and you know that’s like in the top 3 of the most important things in my life neighbourhood so you know I am liking that.

I almost got a leopard print watch even bigger than this one but thought that was too insane, I’ll stick to the mellower loud and neon peach one instead, yeah much more subtle.

The price point is no different betwixt shoppers and the bay so hit the bay this time plus they didn’t have what I bought at The Bay at Shoppers. At shoppers my makeup was on sale. I bought 4 tubes. Ultra discount. Usually that means they’re phasing it out which worries me.

And here I am as a sweet dork. Peace no probs.

Domestic molestic continues

I just came up with a great sequel to Bad Teacher and it’s called SCARY BABYSITTER!

Good idea.

Famous blogger, I am, yes?

Why was there a can opener there? We got in a fight cos he said it didn’t look good and I was like, in crazy girlfriend ugly face, “what the fuck doesn’t look good?” I have not gone to Ikea once and not had a couple disagreement not once. People get edgy and even after the loosening up heinekens. I was having a bit of panic and feeling overwhelmed because I am a perfectionist and grabbing bits and bobs makes you feel scattered like how is this house shopping if we are only buying a pillow? Once we got the cart we calmed the hell down haha. Worst cart ever too it was like bumper cars dodging people and furniture. I smashed in to so many displays. I love Ikea cos they leave you alone and not once have I been hassled about photography, never, ever. knock on wood now cos it’s been a good run. I Have photos back to 2003 on this crap-o-blog. I’m lying on a fur rug here.

OMG! I love it, sorry just found this, had to share. I know what movie we’re watching tonight!

The cat’s nail ripped out on this shirt and made a hole in it while we were all lying on the couch it is like living on a farm I swear plus all these new pillows and couch throw ahaha just wait til we get the pile rug it’s going to be fucking bananas we’ll have a big christmas jam I am making the most craziest hello kitty madness christmas tree It’ll be like PeeWee’s Playhouse. Oh god.

Should get it in time for tomorrow’s shoot?

We had every intention of buying this rug but the store closed and couldn’t run back to fetch it, and the instruction/ikea directions weren’t clear then we got lost in the vortex of that place and got drunk and overwhelmed. It was a great time!

This couch is fun for like three seconds then you’re like, I am trapped in a Dr. Seuss hell, WITH YOU ugh. My tat is showing cos I don’t want to get sweater furl in the lotion, which is what happens. Must air breathe and you know I am not “trying hard” or “posing” cos my other tats are covered so shut uppy!

Laine needs customer service abuse advice, on how to better abuse customer service women cos they be catty bitches. Have any probs you want answered in video format? Laine, yours is first :) (I’ll make a video tonight).

Man those Swedes are comedians.

Raymbo Bright room!

I’ve gotta dash out soon to be on REAL camera for that advertisement thingy I’m in/working on with Rob. Do you like my swedish accent?

How geniuses shop. Leslie was like, yours has beer!? DUDE. There are pictures of me with beer or wine in every ikea blog post. EVERY POST. There’s been loads of legendary ikea posts here, they even make the news. Why you’d pay another blogger to blog Ikea for you is a waste of advertising dollars. Have you seen my blog counter lately? or theirs? Brad’s post yesterday drove it up to 133 and there weren’t even any tits in it BUT there’s a video of me running in a long white whimsical dress in a field through sunshine the day the globe and mail article hit newsstands and it was a mega intense dramatic day, everyone had emotions about it.

See Leslie!

Retro Raymeh.

Bought two of these, one for at my dad’s so he can keep it on his Raymi Shelf lol. He kept the water fluff science experiment xmas tree we made last year that my aunt bought.

Not as littered with decorations as I had thought it’d be, too soon.

Makeup spackle time brb!

Aw nice random FB message of the day:

I don’t know how we know eachother- but I have to say your pictures are always amazing!!! Lol- they are more interesting then the friends I do know! … Thanks for always looking fun! Krystie

Well thanks Krystie, that is because I have been a professional interesting person for many years now! Love Raymi.

That flower cushion is reversible. It’s plaid on the other side.

Even though I am fully in to pink I think it would make the living room too Pee Wee’s Playhouse but then again it is way more comfortable than how I am hunch over right now.

I was closing this cupboard on a little girl. No seriously, two show up and one climbs in and I stood there frozen like, I know how this goes down on tv, security arrives and I get arrested for talking to a child that isn’t mine. Meanwhile the mom could care less about her daughters and I always end up babysitting the thing for a minute or two. I started hanging up the prop clothes on the hangers in there all around her til her sister dragged her away crying, wanting desperately to be my daughter. Sorry kid, the stork missed my house.

Ok I’m back my film shoot has been pushed to tomorrow and the location has changed to my livingroom! Perfect that we just went to Ikea much??

I am in to this dude. Change many colours, I think all other Little Raymi-like minded types have him already, or will. Hard to capture when it goes pink.

My dad has one of these for Rocky. My Friend is already wreaking havoc all over it.

Looks like I have an elongated face here.

OK that is pinkish. I wanted a light instead of candles all the time. My eyes require ambiance, I am a moody writer.

Mystery camera has the juicy ones on it. It was my goal to get a nice portrait studio thing going on in the bedroom, bought a new duvet. It’s happening.

First crow’s feet picture of me ever. Look like whiskers!

Love this european flare creepy minimalist children’s toy. One in every hair/skin tone. Bjorn where is the Jam?

Yeah we may not go back for this but I do want a better chair, and desk. When my tickle trunk boudoir is clean It may turn into an office. or maybe I’ll get a TV show to make it all over hahhaa. HINT.

Chair matches my purse and the shiny leather matches my shiny nose.

I look like my nana and mother.

I dunno couldn’t tell ya. I want forehead botox though.

I was tired. Got period today so I wasn’t making it up.

Don’t dress like a slob cos there’s mirrors everywhere.

That shirt came from Stephy. We are the same size and she is tiny. She was my first tiny friend and I give her much credit in becoming teeny again because I am competitive and was jealous. YES!

I tsk tsked her choices meanwhile put my face in three boxes of chocolates last night. Plus two other bags we already had. PMS is a hell of a thing! It’s like battling an ancient demon warlock that travels up from Hell to fight again. BRING IIIIIT!

The stuff in the middle of the salmon was gross, no idea what it is. Not parsnips.


If these sheets are so racially hotbed issue why didn’t anyone care when Old navy was all “ethnic prints” (yes actual wording from the campaign I blogged about it when it happened) and the look was “tribal” then AA ran with it too? Puh-lease, this is an homage and I disagree, it’s also canadiana too if you look more closely. We took photos last night of the new duvet I will look at once I download them off mystery camera.

Spicy chocolate. Sent the rest to school with Teacher. I have to watch my waistline.

Ok better pictures now.

christmas is for FUCKING ASSHOLES

you ghost of christmas passed-out

hi guise i thought i was on the mend but then i woke up this morning and THE SICKNESS had made its way to my throat, total phlegmland. we had a lot of last minute gift buying to do and i of course started to panic about it, fil was going with or without me so i had to decide either to stay in bed get better and obsess over all the things i wasn’t getting done in the outside world OR go out despite being sick as a dog, spread the influenza to as many stores as possible, and get shit done. so i got shit done with bloodshot eyes and zero energy and you know it kinda worked to my benefit cos i was able to achieve this zen-like state akin only to hot-boxing your brains out or whatever, no crabby bitches got me down today no siree, not possible, what i can barely hear out of my right ear.

ok where was i oh yeah i made little video updates from every stop and my happiness/tolerance level dramatically dips at each one. crabby in the car, not in the store. new rule. except i forgot to tell fil about that one not like he’d listen anyway.

good luck to you all tomorrow you last minute shopping motherfuckers, you will need it. wear layers that you can remove, nothing too heavy, throw a bottle of water in your purse and nuts or one of those hippie bars avoid the mall food court for the sake of your own sanity, that’s what a gossip magazine told me in the car today.

yesterday i stir crazy attacked the kitchen cabinets fuck they were so filthy, once you notice a speck you notice everything, it was no easy task, we clean those things never. fil said he wants to hire a cleaning lady (sexist) and he said this literally a minute after i had the same idea (but would never indulge in such a luxury, i would feel way too guilty and fat and useless) so i then decided why the hell would we pay someone when i can do a shittier job for free? so basically my right bicep is like arnold’s right now. i attacked every door frame, door, drawer any space our fingers touch and then other places wow reading about cleaning is fascinating right?

oh what’s that? anorexic you say? hahaha

if i told you how much i weigh now my mother would faint.

sick is the best exercise i never had. (that’s my quote i just invented it yes i realise how clever it is)

oh and i’m 20 again.

and i have perfect balance for the first time ever (tellin’ ya get yourself a zen cold, today)

during my leave of absence i also discovered the television has a blog.

and this would be smokey eyes, it makes more sense in real life and if your canvas (face) isn’t sickly pale like mine.

to be fair to cid this is an especially unflattering shot of him out of the ten i took. i wanted to capture the essence of his psychotically desperate obsession with fil.

washed and dried my school skirt (dry clean only my ass!) and tried it on to see if it shrunk, didn’t. i think it’s never before been washed. nice.

i had other things to say but i forget them. til later.

oh yes i remember i bought myself a ceramic curling iron so i can have “holiday hair” tomorrow and for christmas, i figure i have this stupid long hair i may as well do something with it for example in early highschool years i both curled and braided it like a christina aguilera nitemare. PUMPED. i should start collectnig little pieces of crap too, tinsel and miniature angels and butterflies. ew.

i also learned from the information magazines that a lot of celebrity babies are extremely ugly and that no matter how famous you are and how much your personal trainer and personal chef keeps you lean, you can’t get them to visit your birthing sac ok dudes even i have no idea what i am trying to say anymore so good nite.

did you know that aunt bethany from national lampoon’s christmas vacation was the voice of betty boop and olive oyl?!
