As a gift for my mom’s first post-retirement birthday, my brother and I chipped in on a membership to Ancestry.com. She’s been blabbing on and on about wanting to do genealogy, but I think she needed a kick in the butt to start acting on it. And that’s what I, as the proverbial redheaded (non... Read more »

Kiss Me I Have Leprechaun Blood

Kiss Me I Have Leprechaun Blood
Shocking news. My mom revealed I might be Irish and/or Scottish today. I was always under the impression my red hair was Norsk and Russian-Jewish. Afterall, red hair came from the Vikings, according to a random old dude who always came into the ACE Hardware I worked at as a teenager.   This news is... Read more »

Can a ginger girl get a free green beer plz? St. Paddy's Day Recap

    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.
