Horoscopes for Redheads

Over the past few years, I’ve been getting my hands dirty in astrology. And not like “my horoscope said that today I’m going to pet a goat and then the goat will bite my finger off, but it’s OK because I’ll win $13.50 at the petting zoo raffle.” Since obviously, that could be applied to...

Early 20s Nostalgia

Early 20s Nostalgia
I’ve been feeling nostalgic about 2009-2011ish lately. Everything felt new & fresh. It was the dawn of the social media age, and I had Twitter before pretty much anyone else did (#humblebrag). Through social media, I was building a personal brand, getting to talk to editors of big magazines who otherwise would’ve never given me... Read more »

Red Hair Fading Acceptance

Red Hair Fading Acceptance
“Babe, your hair is getting so blonde!” my hairstylist said. “What are you doing to my beautiful red hair?” “Nothing. It’s fading,” I said, nearly in tears. My coworker S has been telling me lately that he thinks of me more as a blonde than a redhead. Le sigh. “Are you going grey? You’re too... Read more »

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Anger Gingers

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Anger Gingers
My heart is rarely crushed by a celebrity. In general, I know they are celebrities — real people, out there in the abyss somewhere, with real people problems and quirks et al, except probably made thousands of times worse by the bastardization that is fame. It always strikes me as incredibly odd when people say... Read more »

    thegingerphiles

    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.
