All About Moi

ChezGigi.com has been in existence since 2011.

There were three hundred posts on this puppy, and I scrapped them all in favor of obfuscation and puerile persiflage. Though deep down I’m shallow, be reassured I spend a lot of time editing and polishing everything I write.

I am the victim of many fantasies, which lie thick as leaves in Vallombrosa. It’s a wonderful outlet for the Mind of the Idle, which is full of the Benign, the Bizarre, and the Bon Mot.

My blog is dedicated to humor, the kind that makes me laugh, and I’ve always thought I was hilarious. Sometimes, I’m the only one laughing at my jokes, and I hate explaining why they’re funny.

Someone told me that aspirin was good for your hair after swimming. I told her the aspirin kept falling off my head, even when I kept it in the bottle, but the moose in my hair appreciated it, because he’d gotten drunk the night before. He just hated swallowing it with pool water.

This considerate person explained that the aspirin needed to be dissolved in water first, and then poured over my hair. That’s the kind of thing I run into all the time.

I’m a retired teacher, and if that doesn’t scare you thinking about the future of our citizens and country, I usually clicked with seventh graders. They thought I was cool. I thought they were hilarious, especially when they weren’t trying.

I passed three of them in a hall one day. They were rehearsing a Revolutionary War skit. One was marching back and forth with a broom over his shoulder.

“The Rednecks are coming! The Rednecks are coming!” said one colonial middle schooler.

“That’s Redcoats, you dweeb,”said the other colonist.

“History is fascinating,” thought I.

If you haven’t had a humorectomy from a bored-certified plastic surgeon, you may enjoy my site. Do not underestimate the power of humor, which besides making you feel better, will make many of your fellow human beans think you are a shallow-pated, uninformed idgit.

They can go away and get their own country. Their flag will depict a wagging finger.

This is me, just a few years ago, showing off my new Easter underpants. This is how I feel about the aforementioned people we were discussing. I was prescient even then, only I didn’t know about flipping people off.

I’ve been writing on Quora.com for a few months now, and became Quoran of the Week in February, 2016.


So stoked to have won the Boost Blog Traffic and Serious Bloggers Only competition! I was among some awesome company.


10 Things Women Don’t Do In Movies That Make Me Crazy and Every Toddler Knows How To Do

Glen and BBT team gave me a fabulous compliment:

“Gigi’s writing oozes personality, and her post achieves the rare feat of being laugh-out-loud funny from beginning to end. Her distinct writer’s voice brands every sentence, and by the time I finished, I felt myself developing an addiction – I wanted to hear her hilariously rant about another topic.”

Another item checked off my bucket list was being published on the Huff Post. Done:


Here’s unimpeachable feedback on ChezGigi.com from Stacey Gustafson who likes humor, too. Thanks, Stacey! She took the time to read my blog, and respond to my comment:


I love feedback- Leave a comment on any post and I’ll reply to it. If you’re a writer and a blogger and want to guest post, let me know. I like to write because I don’t know how to do something useful, like knit.

Otherwise, my time is gainfully spent as a pool workout artist, a straightener of rugs, and a Sugar-baiter. Sugar is my dog. Relax.
