Shouldn't a redhead have won "The Hunger Games"?

Shouldn't a redhead have won "The Hunger Games"?
Despite “The Hunger Games” being a mediocre book/movie at best, not to mention ripped off “Battle Royale”, I see some serious inaccuracies in both forms of the story. Suzanne Collins proves to be redist and portrays gingers stereotypically. First, there’s Foxface. Foxface is unusually clever. Oddly, the actress cast in the movie does not have... Read more »

Craiglist Creepers - Leprechaun Style

Craiglist Creepers - Leprechaun Style
On Sunday, I was miffed about not being offered free green beer on St. Patrick’s Day. If people tell me I look like a leprechaun, shouldn’t they give me a drink on the one day a year it’s OK to be told that, dammit? While trolling for the semi-regular Craiglist Creepers series, I found my... Read more »

Staying Power: Redheaded Stars
Yesterday, as I was getting my annual pedicure (not because I’m a girly-girl like that but because besides being a ginger, I’ve been blessed with feet that “look like Africa” according to my blonde Californian friend), I happened to page through an issue of Vanity Fair in which they captured actors and actresses of the...

    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.
