Ginger Introverts

For those of you who know me personally, you know I’m a flaming introvert. I despise small talk, I’m a better listener than talker (more of a curse than you’d think) and I often come off as cold or antisocial when I’m really just inside my own head. Being a ginger, of course, adds another... Read more »

Boston Fails to Set Guinness World Record; Can Chicago do it?

Boston Fails to Set Guinness World Record; Can Chicago do it?
Boston attempted to gather the most redheads in one place at Irish Fest to set a Guinness World Record.   Based on my Twitter interactions and naked eye on the street, I’m noticing lots of redheads exist in Chicago. It’s a bigger city than Boston and there’s a sizable Irish population (though, don’t get me... Read more »

I was blind but now I see

I was blind but now I see
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of having the best doctor’s visit ever in my life, with any kind of doctor. I went to a new optometrist, at Solo Eyes in the South Loop. They are so thorough and nice, and the optometrist even picked out a few pairs of glasses for me. Of course, he... Read more »

Best Dressed Redhead

Jessica Chastain voted a best-dressed redhead at the Tony Awards. She definitely seems to be fast on her way to becoming the new Nicole Kidman Julianne Moore ”it” redhead. Thoughts? I love the color of her dress — so pretty on porcelain-skinned ginger beheaded beauties.

Ginger Pro-Phile: Shaun White

Ginger Pro-Phile: Shaun White
Shaun White is a really bad actor. I learned this by watching some movie I can’t even remember the name of. I think Justin Timberlake was in it [Edit: It's Friends with Benefits]. But, Shaun White is a really good snowboarder. I strongly believe his gingerness drove his love of extreme sports. Extreme hair = extreme... Read more »

Why AT&T Supports Redheads

Why AT&T Supports Redheads
Ok, ok I know EVERYONE hates AT&T. But me. I’ve never had much of a problem with their service; in fact, I’m usually the only one who can get service when everyone else can’t. Plus, my work phone runs on Verizon, and I can’t even get reception AT work. What’s the point of having a... Read more »

Daywalker Discrimination

Daywalker Discrimination
Today I learned I’m just as bad as the redists. I discriminate against a marginalized group — aka the daywalkers.   See the commentary and response from the Ariel/Daywalker episode below: redmoon said 6 hours, 39 minutes agoHey! Even us daywalkers are still redheads. I might not have freckles and maybe I’m not pale, but I... 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.
