#ShitGingerPhilesSay

#ShitGingerPhilesSay
Yesterday, I listed Shit Gingers Say (sorry, no star). Today, I’m listing #ShitGingerPhilesSay (Broken down: Shit-Ginger-Philes-Say) aka the creeps who are in love with gingers:   If you’re not Irish, then are you Scottish? If you’re not Irish or Scottish, then what ARE you? Your hair is SO pretty. Do the carpets match the curtains?... Read more »

#ShitGingersSay

#ShitGingersSay
  #Shit[Insertsubculturehere]Says blew up on us, didn’t it? Although I still want to create a #ShitGingersSay (who wants to be a YouTube star!?) video, I’ve come up with a series of #ShitGingersSay quips, many of which you may have read on Twitter:   I can just blame it on not having a soul, like I...

Ginger Pro-Philes: Isla Fisher

Ginger Pro-Philes: Isla Fisher
“Wedding Crashers” is one of my favorite movies. Not only does it accurately portray redheads as cray-cray (see Isla Fisher pretending to be a virgin because she thinks that’s what guys like, when she’s secretly crazy kinky), but also the brunettes and blondes in it are just plain annoying (sorry Rachel McAdams fans).   Remember...

Hot or Not? Nicole Kidman Golden Globes

I always admired Nicole Kidman for her redhead-appropriate fashion choices up until about “Cold Mountain” time, when she dyed her hair blonde, seemingly around the same time as another beautiful redheaded star gone bad/blonde. However, with her dress and hair choice at the recent Golden Globes, she has redeemed herself. While not as fiery as... Read more »

Why you Should Avoid Redhead Piano Bar

Why you Should Avoid Redhead Piano Bar
“A flirtatious redhead looks fetchingly over her shoulder and lures you into her chamber…”. This is the copy that welcomes you to the Redhead Piano Bar’s homepage. As I’m sure many do, I like to think I’m that flirtatious redhead, looking fetchingly over my shoulder as I catch you reading this blog behind me. A... Read more »

Hot or Not: Emma Stone Golden Globes

I wrote about Emma Stone and her fake gingerness not too long ago. Recently, she supposedly “stunned everyone” with her choice of dress for the Golden Globes. I for one, hate, hate hate it. The only good thing about it is that it’s purple; the greatest color of all for our porcelain, freckled skin. But... Read more »

Craigslist Creepers

Craigslist Creepers
Craiglist creepers serve to remind us we’re alive and as lonely and destitute as we are, we’re still holding it together than many others out there. Here’s a sampling of the creepiest of the ginger phile creeps crawling Craiglist lately: 1. I’m kind, attractive and sane and I want to date a pretty REDHEAD (I’m serious):... Read more »

Sin in the Second City - Redheaded Whores

Sin in the Second City - Redheaded Whores
Believe it or not, gingers can be intellectual and social people (despite my poop TMIs), and for me it’s in the most nerdy way: belonging to a book club. Our club is currently reading “Sin in the Second City”, a view of what Chicago’s prostitution ring resembled at the dawn of the 20th century. Author... Read more »

Ginger Pro-Philes: Lindsay Lohan

Ginger Pro-Philes: Lindsay Lohan
Oh hey Lindsay Lohan, so you made it into Playboy without being strung out during your shoot. Congratulations.   I have to focus on Lindsay Lohan in my Ginger Pro-Philes segment because of this recent and well-publicized occurrence. I also have to discuss her, because she has committed one of a ginger’s greatest sins: she... Read more »

2011 in Review: Ginga-Style

2011 in Review: Ginga-Style
Hey errbody. I hope all you ginges & philes had semi-decent New Year’s that did not involve making out with men/women simply because they were the only peeps in the bar willing to kiss redheads/only redheads in the bar. I for one, was pooping in a bathroom stall at a bar in Bucktown when the... Read more »

    thegingerphiles

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
