StyleBlazer: Liya Kebede Covers Harper’s Bazaar Spain Looking Hot in Fire Engine Red Hair! Ok, I have no idea who this is but what is with non-U.S. Harper’s Bazaars sporting really... Read more »

Another one bites the dust...

Another one bites the dust...
Yet another celebrity dyed her hair red and made national news despite it looking horribly fake. But extra points for dying the eyebrows red too (according to E! News or some shit like that). Speaking of which, it’s weird when she was blonde she had dark eyebrows and now that she’s going darker she’s making... Read more »

Craigslist Creepers

Craigslist Creepers
Maybe it’s spring springing but there are several more redhead postings on Craiglist than usual. Here are a few of the creepiest:   1. Smile from the train: This Missed Connection refers to a “small, captivating redhead” which is completely un-descriptive since we’re all captivating, duh. (Except for the daywalkers, obvi.) He describes himself as... Read more »

The Redhead Piano Bar Shuts Down my Free Drink Request

The Redhead Piano Bar Shuts Down my Free Drink Request
Remember when I posted about avoiding the Redhead Piano Bar back in January because they hadn’t responded to my Tweet request free drinks? Well, they finally got back to me about a week ago with this direct message:   “Great drinks, free live music seven nights a week and no cover. But you want free drinks... Read more »

You are What you Drink: Ginger Tea

You are What you Drink: Ginger Tea
As soon as I found out ginger tea had healing benefits, especially for sinus issues, I started drinking nearly a cuppa day. It’s spicy and different, and I love it (though others say it’s gross). Sounds like typical gingerism to me.

Redheaded Sluts

Redheaded Sluts
No, I’m not referring to myself. I created this as my “signature drink” for my 21st birthday party. (Why yes, if I were a man, I would be gay.) I may have gotten the idea from Gilmore Girls when Grandmother Emily creates a fruity pink cocktail called a “Rory” for Rory Gilmore’s 21st birthday. Two... Read more »

Ugh, yet another redhead movie stereotype ... "Bad Teacher"

Ugh, yet another redhead movie stereotype ... "Bad Teacher"
My lovely new roommate got us a sweet package with several movie channels. So as I’m sitting here on a Friday night, eating General Tso’s chicken by my lonesome, I am shocked to find a bad movie like “Bad Teacher” further perpetuates ginger stereotypes of us as cray-cray. Cameron Diaz becomes rivals with a superstar... Read more »

CTA Workers & Gingers make the Perfect Couples

CTA Workers & Gingers make the Perfect Couples
Or so my futuristic self thinks. Yesterday, as I was humbly trying to get through the gates at the Roosevelt station, I felt someone talking to me from behind. I turned and looked at him and realized three things: 1. He said, “Beautiful hair,” to me. 2. He was wearing a lime green vest that... Read more »

    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.
