Redhead Roundup: Yeehaw!

Redhead Roundup: Yeehaw!

Welcome to the third installment of The Ginger Philes Redhead Roundup! Gingers were cray this week but that's not new news is it? Let's take a look:

1. The Washington Post did a ridiculous article about some idiot who thinks she has a "thing" for gingers. She's quoted as saying, "I have a thing for redheads. Not flaming red but more of a rusty brown/auburn red." Honey, that's a DAYWALKER, not a ginge.

2. A trend of bright red hair is here to stay, says Style Bistro

3. A redheaded lego -- this is pretty fucking awesome.

4. I'll never forget when a carny insulted me by calling me "Wendy". Now, a real redhead is in the Wendy's commercials (it's Wendy Thomas, Dave Thomas' daughter), and I wish I had auditioned for that commercial. Anyone audition? I heard there were open tryouts.

5. Broadway picked a new Annie. I'd like to take this time to remind everyone that I was once selected as the fourth grade understudy to the fifth grader who played Annie in our elementary school version of the musical. Too bad I made people frown when I sang, "The sun'll come out tomorrow!" Also, this is one of my first memories of ginger jealousy -- several peers were jealous of me, and I didn't know why. Someone told me they were mocking me while I was singing backstage. It still hurts.

Anything I pissed? Hope you had a good time redding it (get it?)!

    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.
