An Update/Announcement!

Hi all! I hope everyone is still surviving this pandemic. I'm mostly good and just occasionally like this:

Time for a big announcement! Or maybe not so big, because I'm not really sure how many people are still reading this blog anymore. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

Over the past 9 years, Mayor Gia has been a safe space for me to post about my relationship and other personal stuff, and I've kept it pretty locked down from my real life. However, for the past few years, my drawings have been more about the pets and such, because that's what makes me happy. 

I realize I don't want to keep my drawings/etc that much of a secret anymore - I want to make bad drawings about the pets and occasionally other stuff, and share it with people in my real life too. 

So, I'm making a pretty big re-branding change. I've created a new blog/space:! Right now, I'll mostly be posting existing cat-based blogs with some mayor-gia-related content removed. Eventually I'll be posting new cartoons there too.  

I may still occasionally post here, and the majority of my old posts will stay up, so feel free to peruse the years of mostly-very-weird content. 

Also, I'm writing this because I generally trust you guys not to go to that page and post "hey its mayor gia from!" in the comments, as I'm trying to keep this blog still separate from my real life.  So, please don't! That said, if someone who actually knows me in real life finds this and is reading it....well, howdy!!

Hope to see you at, where both the drawings AND the cat are bad!

Adjusting to the New Normal

Holy crap, time is flying by! Apologies for not blogging in awhile - hope you all are safe and COVID-free. 

As I mentioned a few months ago, kitty and I have moved in with Boyfriend and his dog and two cats. How's that going, you wonder?'s going....

poor, misunderstood, terrorizing kitty. oh well.

April Update

Hi all -

So uhhhh, everything got pretty fucked up since my last update, huh? I wish I've had more time to blog because this pandemic could lead to some Grade A content, but we've been busy moving in together/adjusting to working from home/having massive panic attacks.  Yep, it's been six or so weeks of this:

Luckily we're both rona-free to date, but we do live/work in a hotspot so we've being VERY careful.  I hope everyone else is healthy and safe, and if you're quarantining in one of the insane states that are re-opening too early, I hope you can safely avoid people. People are bad.

Hiii Happy 2020 to any readers still out there!

Apologies that I haven't been drawing/posting - life has just gotten really busy lately. Everything is (mostly) good - I did have my first ocular migraine a few weeks back, which made me think I was having a stroke. That actually was going to result in a very funny post, but I seemed to have pinched a nerve in my shoulder/neck/arm which has made sitting at a computer really unmanageable for longer than I have to (which I do 8 hours a day for my job...). I'm working on it! I'll be back at some point! 

Anyway, besides that, Boyfriend's good, I'm good, the pets are good, and we're going to be moving in together this spring. Hooray! I hope you all are well too. 

In the meantime, I'm reposting the blog below in honor of the head/neck issues. If you haven't seen it before, enjoy!

~ Gia

So, as I wrote about last week, I had a headache the weekend before. What I didn’t blog about, though, was how it came back on Wednesday and lasted the next 4-5 days. It was mostly on the right side of my face/head (though it jumped to the left one night).

t’s also why I was less active in the blogger/twitter world, in case anyone noticed or missed me (doubtful).
On Thursday, I went to the minute clinic, and was diagnosed with either a migraine or a sinus infection or something more serious but less likely.  

I also get super woozy when we start talking about arteries or anything blood related and I almost passed out

She gave me antibiotics in case it is a weird sinus infection and sent me on my way. On Friday, my eyes were still aching and my head/neck hurt.  I saw Boyfriend.
I gave up on doctors after this experience 

I started to feel a little bit better Saturday/Sunday. The pain felt like it was coming from my neck more, so I’m thinking maybe I pulled it somehow very badly, because I googled and it looks like a neck muscle can cause pain all over one side of your head including your forehead and eye.

I’m considering going to a doctor. We’ll see.


Has this happened to anyone else? And before anyone comments with scary advice about how I’m having ministrokes  or tumors or aneurysms or any equally horrifying things, this is not accompanied by a fever or dizziness or blurred vision or nausea/vomiting or disorientation.

Thanks bunches.

Tis the Season!

Yes, this is a throwback. BUT, it's funny and I'm having a very busy month. Enjoy!

Interest piqued? We're looking at this:

Yep, Boyfriend's cat has a new trick: Getting on his roof. Why? Who the hell knows.

(Yeah, that part didn't happen.)

Anyway, if he WAS putting up Christmas decorations, it'd look just like this:

Tis the season!
