Yep, curmudgeons. Well, only 1 actually. Gigdiary. Gig to his friends.
Gig and I 'met' quite a while ago on Mia Freedman's blog, Mamamia. He was the one who would pop up occassionally, with sometimes irreverent, always to the point quips.
There were occassions where his remarks upset others, but as a rule, any differences were smoothed over. It got to the point where a reply from Gig was one of the most watched for things on Mia's blog (besides Frockwatch). He was warmly hailed by many of the regulars whenever he cared to share his thoughts.
And then Gig got hisself a blog - where he could be as curmudgeonly as he liked. And he is. And I for one, love it.
Gig is one of those rare people, one of the very few whom understand that it is possible to disagree with someone's opinion, without it turning into a full-on brawl. Most times, we agree. Others, we don't. And that's ok. We agree to disagree, and respect each other the more for that.
So, if you have a spare moment of 2, check out his blog - whilst he IS an old cumudgeon, he is also very funny, and has a great sense of the ridiculousness of the world we live in.
