How to Pass the Time While You're Waiting for the Train: Ginger Spotting

How to Pass the Time While You're Waiting for the Train: Ginger Spotting
Y’all know what mullet hunting is, and y’all know how much waiting for the train sucks. It’s not like sitting down on the train, because it’s slightly more awkward to read a book on the platform, since you your hands aren’t free to punch the homeless person who tries to steal your iPhone. Yes, these... Read more »

Redhead Tumblr

Look at this Tumblr! Is it not amazing?

I'm Going Blonde & It's Terrifying

I'm Going Blonde & It's Terrifying
And not on purpose. As part of the redheaded aging process, we go blonde first, then white. It’s our version of going grey. And at 25, I’m starting to go blonde. I’ve always had a few blonde streaks (which at least one stylist thought was chemical highlights), but I’ve recently had more than one person... Read more »

I’ve been curious to know what it would feel like to have... 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.
