Redhead Days Chicago Review

Redhead Days Chicago Review
Redhead Days Chicago, the first incarnation, took place this weekend. Redhead Days Chicago is a misnomer, because the event actually takes place in Highwood, IL. Despite it being a suburb, those of us who deal with the commute know that in the same amount of time we could get to Highwood, we could also fly... Read more »

Don't Call Me Ginger

Don't Call Me Ginger
My coworkers were discussing an Irishman whose name was James but went by Ginger and got mad if you called him anything else. What is wrong with this picture? And why did everyone turn to stare at me?

What should I have said?

What should I have said?
The other day, I was minding my own ginger-y business and walking down the street sans hat. I tell you that because after this incident, I’ve decided I should now always make sure to wear a hat to disguise my gingerness as much as possible. And that’s because, as I was crossing State Street, a... Read more »

The Redhead Dictionary

The Redhead Dictionary
It’s come to my attention that several people have no idea wtf I’m talking about when I call people daywalkers. So here are a few key words in the ginger lexicon important to the redhead diaspora: ginger: redhead. Does not have soul daywalker: redhead who doesn’t have any freckles and can tan ginger phile: men... Read more »

Kiss Me, I'm Ginger

Instead of wearing a shirt that says “Kiss Me, I’m Irish!” I’m going to cross out the “Irish” and write “Ginger” this Saturday. What kind of reaction do you think I’ll receive?

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 »

Redhead RoundUp - Yeehaw!

Redhead RoundUp - Yeehaw!
Happy Friday Ginger-Philes! Between a ginger spawn of a mom in blackface with blonde hair and even more celebrities dying their hair red as a publicity stunt (yawn), this has been a week chockful of news almost as disgusting as daywalkers: 1. Some Mexican redhead is in a boxing fight. I would know more about... 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 »

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.

    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.
