So everyone else is blogging this, so fuck it, I might as well too. My friend Raymi in Toronto has a very unique, and often copied, blog. So tonight, after getting a bit tipsy, I attempted to recreate some of her brilliance myself. The end result is a funny parody, complete with drunk dancing by myself.

I’ve been reading her blog ever since this contest occurred last year — it really is an awesome read thanks to its truly unique and honest content. I recently had a chance to drink a lot of beer, eat some nachos and even do some drunken swing dancing with Raymi, and she’s as awesome and genuine as her blog is. Here’s what Matthew Good recently had to say about her blog in The Tyee. Over the seven years that Lauren has been writing, she has been able to […]
