Mayor Gia Meme 2012!

There’s been a bunch of the end of the year memes going around now, like this one that Aunt Becky from Mommy Wants Vodka encouraged us to do. So I figured, what the hell, I can do a meme!

But then I also thought, “Hey, I want to make up the questions AND answers! I’ll make my own meme! Because I don’t believe in rules.*”

*only when they’re in opposition to what I’d like to do. The rest of the time I’m pretty okay with rules.

[Side note: Then I saw Aunt Becky also posted an original meme. It’s funny and mine is not as good but it's already done so here it is!!]
The Mayor Gia Meme!

1. What do you wish you were doing right now instead of answering this meme? 
Sleeping. And drinking. Well actually, I am drinking. So just sleeping.

2. How do you pronounce meme? 
Mem-may. Because I don’t follow your rules (*see above). Even though Boyfriend said it was mEEm. Frankly, I think it was mEEm of him to correct me (see what I did there??).

3. Show me something cute. 
Here’s a kitty:

4. Awwww 
Thank you.

5. Soooo…how was 2011? 
Um, pretty good.  Care to be more specific….?

6. Worst moment? 
I don't want to talk about it.

7. Ok. Best moment? 
Ummmm, not to be all mushy or anything, but probably when Boyfriend finally asked me out. I’ll post about our inappropriate courtship eventually.

8. Biggest accomplishment? 
Convincing Boyfriend to ask me out.

9. Seriously? You’re not gonna say “starting a blog?” 
Oh oh oh, that too. That’s totally an accomplishment.

10. I feel underappreciated, as blog memes go... 
I am sorry for that.

11. Goals for 2012? 
Well, my resolution is to be the WORLD’S BEST GIRLFRIEND, so that is underway (you know, except for the hiccup I wrote about yesterday). Other goals include being less poor, moving into a roommateless apartment, and maybe getting a cat. But mostly the WORLD’S BEST GIRLFRIEND thing.

12. Seriously, NOTHING related to blogging?? 
Oh wait! I have those!

13. And they are….? 
Well first of all, to keep posting regularly. I also want to open a zazzle store for some of my drawings. I don’t have any delusions of grandeur that other people will be interested in buying mugs with cranky bears on them or anything. But who knows - there might be a mug shortage one day and mugs with cranky bears will be the only ones left, you know??

14. Okay. I’m tired of asking you questions. 
That was quick.

15. Yeah, I have stuff to do. I gotta go see a guy about a thing. 
I understand.

16. Let’s finish this. Draw me something 
Here’s a picture. I call it “drunk dog.” Not because the dog is drunk, but because I was drunk when I drew it.

17. You stay classy. 
Hey. I am classy. I have pearls.


  1. Hmmm... have you ever entertained concerns that you may have more than one personality circling around in that silly head of yours??

    Here's the name of a trusted professional that could get your mental state checked out:

    Dr. MadeYaLook!

    Anyways, no matter how many personalities you may exhibit, I love them all!

    And I nominated you for most humorous blog....

  2. Take it from me, Gia doesn't have multiple personalities. She does have at least 7 voices though. (One for each of the cats she'll eventually get.) The blog, the wine, the inappropriate Boyfriend (me) helps keep them all at bay. Medication would be easier, but so be it. She is adorable though and very smart and very funny. Hey Blog! Who helped get you started, hoss? Was I part of your worst moment?

  3. I thought memes were picture or video based. But asking yourself questions works. Did you draw the dog on the pad? If so, I don't want to make you an alcoholic or anything but it's pretty good.

  4. Pearls make everything better! And would you be interested in doing an interview on my site? I can send you on the questions for it?

  5. "I think it was mEEm of him" crack me up! And that's right, stand up for are a classy girl those pearls say it all ;-)

  6. hahaha I wonder what the right way is to say it! And you are classy with your pearls. You're sarcastic humor cracks me up girlie :)

  7. I'm with Pickleope, I was expecting you to hit us with a Mayor Gia Meme, in other words, a set of funny pictures, all related, that take the Internet virally.

    But I guess a set of great answers and a picture of a drunk dog (er, a dog drawn by a drunk artist) will do.

  8. Guys, don't blame me! I don't even know how to pronounce meme. MommyWantsVodka taught me its also a survey, apparently. Or something. I don't know, I'm very confused about the whole thing and I didn't entirely get it either. I should probably make sure I understand words before I use them.

  9. I thought meme's were just subjects that a ton of people answered.

    I like that Boyfriend comments. It's cute of him =]

  10. I love that you just had a conversation with yourself on the internet.

  11. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that I'm not the only one who doesn't know what a meme is! Gia your answers were perfect; love that you get snarky with yourself :)

  12. You stay classy san diego. Cool post! x

  13. I would put drunk dog on my wall. I'd buy it drunk too.

  14. Here you go:

    Yes, I am a dork and looked it up. I knew it was mEEm, but when you pronounced it meh-may, I thought, hmmm, well that sounds right too. I think you can safely say meh-may if you tell people you're Southern :)

  15. I'm kinda worried about you. Would you like to see a specialist? I'll go with you.

    Actually, I think I need one. I just want someone to go with me. Sort of like a girl's day out. Only to see a doc. So, pretty cool, huh? Are you in?


  16. So he asked you out but you had to convince him to do so? Explain, please

  17. drunk dog looks like a retriever and i love it :p
    cheers to WORLD’S BEST GIRLFRIEND :)

  18. Inappropriate courtship. Now there's a hook.

    You could always pronounce it mem, and pretend you're friendship.
