a downtown kind of day...

Yesterday was yet another in a long line of Cami & MissB lunchtime get togethers... only this time it started at 9:30 in the morning...

Cami & MissB in the city... no we weren't 17 blocks from where we were supposed to be because she finds me soooo distracting... we went 17 blocks too far on purpose so we could see a crazy lady cross the street just to touch a light shade and listen to strange apartment dwelling man yell at us about TriMet's poor signage at PGE Park. It was carefully calculated I tell you... we didn't want to spend more than 5 minutes at the EcoTrust building anyway.

See how clever she is... SO clever. She can turn anything into Sex Ed.

These boots? Are made for walking. But we mainly rode around in stuff.

Look at us Holly... we're in front of some kind of shop... I wonder what they have inside...

They have walls of vibrators!

Now after all this walking and bus/train/streetcar/car riding in we were really hungry... so I kind of forgot to keep taking pictures... I wanted food. I needed food. So we went and had some pasta and then we felt much better. So after a quick trip to say hi to the lovely Mr. Burrows we decided to head out to do a little clothes shopping. After much hemming and hawing I got an absolutely fab little spring jacket...


But then? It was time to say goodbye... See that sad MissB? She is sad because I took this picture from the inside of the bus and she was waving goodbye... never to see me again... for 2 days. I listened to Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds all the way home...

Sigh. Downtown days are good... if only I could skip the dead animal at the beginning...

Fab boots, Cami, but what you really need is a pair of crocs ... *snort* (ducks and runs away giggling)

Bubblewench said...

That's sweet... feel the love! Feel the love!

Mr. Fabulous said...

Do you carry a knife? You look like you carry a knife.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Ahhhh you look such a cutie Cami, and Miss Burrows looks all pouty and vixen like. Purrrrrrrrrrr.
Love the boots, love the classy pics, and what's this about a dead animal??
Did you tread in road kill?

The Immoral Matriarch said...

*lolol* @ Mr. Fabulous.

mielikki said...

oh a day JUST LIKE THAT sounds just like what I need. But Celtic Rose would blush and giggle in the Vibe store. She probably wouldn't even go into the damn Vibe store...
sigh
we don't even HAVE a Vibe store.
Shit.
I am going to have to settle for Chocolate and a long nap.

Lisa Milton said...

Portland, vibrators and bloggers?

Good stuff, all.

(Love the candid shots.)

CamiKaos said...

I should also mention the hush hush very secret mystery guest who joined us... but I'm not going to... and I didn't... so that person won't get into trouble. Though I must say that the secret unmentioned person... was very nice.

lisa: It was a good day.

mie: I'm sure Missb would go with you when you come to town.

tIM: He's one funny sob

Jo: Oh, so you noticed the mention of dead things... yes that will be a post for tomorrow.

Mr. Fab: Sure. I do. For cutting up sandwiches and cookies and what not.

BW: Yes feel it but not too close.

Belle: You're very lucky I can't throw that far.

julie said...

CamiKaos said...

stu: we didn't go to sparticus... different store. But I'm sure there will be another trip and we can take Stephanie with us GLADLY.

Julie: You know what else you miss? Mio Sushi. I'm right. you know I am. Damn it now I want sushi.

sybil law said...

Nothing makes me hungry like dildos, too!
Hahahaha
Where is the picture of the coat, dammit?!
I was listening to Nick Cabe about 20 minutes ago...

sybil law said...

Make that Nick Cave,
What do you want from me? I just spent lunch and recess with the WHOLE SCHOOL.

me said...

no lunch time get together is complete until you ride a streetcar and see a wall full of vibrators. I'd call it a successful outing.

Lindy said...

holly said...

Kimberly said...

I'm too busy missing Portland to envy your girl time much.

~sigh~

CamiKaos said...

Kim: Portland is good. I think maybe Portland misses you too.

Holly: holly holly holly... you can come with us next time if you can get here.

lindy: I'm sure you could find something if you had a little look around.

me: oh yes, I agree. Very successful.

Sybil: coat pic will circulate eventually...

stu again: I believe that you and bad mom may have been contacted by my associate.

stephanie said...

I'm jealous of and - you guessed it - slightly scared by your excursion. But mostly I would have loved to hang out.

After June 20th, I am all kinds of wild bad mom. In fact, my kids are in day camp all day everyday the week after school's out.

Dude.

Denise said...

Holy crap was that Spartacus? oh how I miss Downtown.

Deb said...

The only part of your wonderful day that was the same as mine was the Nick Cave part. Isn't it fabulous???
