Can a ginger girl get a free green beer plz? St. Paddy's Day Recap
Kiss Me I'm Irish

Hey y'all. Did all you gingers have an excellent holiday yesterday wearing colors that make you look like a leprechaun on the only day it's OK for you to do so? I sure did....not.

I realize I may be the lamest ginger of the lot.

I, unlike most Chicagoans, did not do anything for St. Patrick's Day, except for clean my old apartment, for nearly the fifth year in a row.

Instead, I got annoyed at all the SPD revelers. Day drinking is obnoxious already but when it involves green beer, green rivers and nearly everyone of age (and some not of age) in the 312, it's frickin' disgusting.

Sorry to have a redheaded temper about it. Perhaps I was just angry that no one offered me a free green beer for having red hair. Hey, I should get some type of compensation for having to give long explanations about how it's possible to have red hair and not be Irish (or Scottish) once every six weeks. The next time someone says, "You look so Irish," or "You just have to be Irish," I'll have to smile and say, "If I said yes, would you buy me a beer on St. Patrick's Day?"

Did any of you gingers get free drinks yesterday? Any ginger philes buy a ginger a drink?

P.S. My friend Claire, who is actually Irish (but not ginger-yes, that's possible too-see future blog posts), wants you all to know that St. Patrick's Day shortened is technically "St. Paddy's Day" and not "St. Patty's Day".

    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.

      The stereotype for redhead guys is much different. Nerdy, weak, moody, argumentative. I hate it. I am it.
