Apologies; ChezGigi Being Rebuilt Due To Brendan Ferriter, Developer

ChezGigi.com was being hosted by Brendan Ferriter, a freelance developer, who convinced me that he could do a good job hosting my site.

My apologies if you came here looking for a specific post. ChezGigi.com is being rebuilt from scratch. There were over a 100 posts, so it will take awhile.

It went down a few times, and I couldn’t get in touch with him. He responded to very few of my emails. So, I told him I wanted to change hosting providers, which isn’t an unheard of thing with site owners.

Why Dinosaurs Became Extinct: Because They Used Winchester Rifle Say Archeologists

From the beginning of time, people have wondered why dinosaurs became extinct. They wondered this even when dinosaurs were walking the earth and standing right in front of them. Early people were quite obviously blind as bats.

They wondered about this phenomenon before the word ‘extinct’ was even invented, which is why they didn’t know that standing in front of some dinosaurs and gawking at them in wonder was a valid reason for humans to follow the dinosaurs’ giant footsteps into oblivion.

7 Reasons I Miss The Telephone Book, Only One Of Which Is Potentially Embarrassing

I opened my front door today and saw a telephone book laying in front of my door. It was inside a plastic sleeve, so I know it wasn’t dropped there accidentally, by some random passerby who just happened to be carrying a telephone book in a plastic bag and got tired.

Sex, Love, Limerence, and Good Old-Fashioned Obsession: These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

 Sex, and love, are time consuming. If you are busy doing either, or both, of them, you hardly have time to grocery shop, much less go to work, or clean the house.

When you first fall in love with someone, all you can think about is that person. When you look at them, they shimmer in that foggy way they use on television to denote someone shimmering in a foggy way. limerence on Chezgigi.com Continue reading

You Might Be Retired If…

Retirees love yoga pants, too-

I read a post on People I Want To Punch in the Throat about how ‘You might be a Suburban Mom if…’ I hope Our Enemies (you know who you are) never read her article.

If what she says in her post is true, we’re doomed as a society.

And The Oscar Goes To: Pete, The Viking, For Perfect Attendance In Battle

Awards are pleasant things, and are handed out for rescuing children from a burning building, discovering a cure for a disease, or for having perfect attendance at work.

I was subbing one day in a teacher’s class and saw a long line of awards on his cabinets. It was very impressive. I wanted to give him an award for having the most awards.

These were all for perfect attendance.

Hear No Evil and Speak No Evil and You’ll Never Get Invited To Parties

To live a good life and make friends, you are adjured to ‘Hear no evil and speak no evil’. Other than that, forging friendships shouldn’t be hard. There are tons of people around; you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting one.

Some of them are quite likeable. We all know, perhaps may even be, one of those paragons of virtue who are kind, compassionate, and helpful, and have a flashy personality to boot.

Maybe we are even a flashy personality who likes to wear boots.

7 Hot Button Issues of Political Correctness That Can Be Injurious To Your Standing As A Bigoted Dweeb

Recently, a friend asked me, as a topic-introducer, though Lord knows we don’t need one, since we never shut up when we get together, what topical issue I am soft on. Frankly, I am soft on all of them, especially fitness, because getting hard is really hard. Especially at my age.

This whole question is a set-up, and will lead you into the sand trap of political correctness.

You should not answer this question, except on your own blog, which you can be pretty sure none of your friends are reading. The friend who asks it will have diametrically opposed opinions to yours, and since yours will likely be opposite to popular consensus, you will look like a bigoted jerk.

Since I am a bigoted jerk (although I do manage to hide this fact from most people) I don’t really care what other people think, but not everyone can be as brave as I.

Would Daniel Boone Put Up With Your Misophonia?

There’s a new syndrome in town, according to Reader’s Digest, and it’s name is misophonia. Misophonia is a condition that makes it so terribly difficult for the sufferer to be around people who make noises.

Really? This works? How many of these cards must you have to get the ‘public’ to be quiet?

You Say Couch Potato Like It Was A Bad Thing

I heard that if you are a couch potato, who watches cooking shows on the food networks, or any network, you will gain weight. Can you beat that? Well, I guess you could beat it, especially with a handy beater, which is in your kitchen drawer.

My question is, if a person stops watching those foodie shows, and watches exercise shows instead, will they lose weight?

How The Rastafari And The Doobie Settled America And Helped The Puritans Get Mellow

A friend let it slip in my hearing that she wished the Rastafari had settled America, instead of those swingin’ Puritans, so that America would be a more mellow nation today. I sympathized with the sentiment; the early settlers of Nevada, the Bugsyians, didn’t even allow the lottery, which led to very strict laws.

This state would be much better off if it allowed people to have more fun, maybe even gamble a little.
