It's a Ginge Thing

Dad

I am a readhead, you all know that, so naturally I get my flawless locks from a member of my family – that person is my father, Ken. My dad is the best guy I know and I love him more than anything! He is literally the coolest ginger that has ever walked the face of the earth and there is no doubt about it. Ken is so funny, laid back, and just the best dad any gingkin could wish for.

Now that I’ve rubbed it in everyone’s face how my dad is better than theirs, I think this story will pretty much convince you all that he is. Last night Ken was at the Red Sox game – shout out to all you bostonians out there – sitting directly next to the dugout. That alone is unreal. He literally could reach right on in and give somebody a big ole’ ging hug if he wanted too. He was texting me pictures of Pedroia, Ortiz, and even some of the managers all night obviously to rub it in my face that he was totally killin’ it at the game. I have met Youkilis before so this didn’t really phase me to an extent, especially since they were losing. It wasn’t until my dad sent me this picture that I really got jealous.

If you aren’t a Boston sports fan you deserve to burn in hell (just kidding…but really) and you probably have no idea who this is. This beautiful man standing next to my father – my dad being the ginger on the left…not that obvious – is none other that Milan Lucic. He plays for the Boston Bruins and is literally a god. This picture is gold. Ken completely owning the entire thing because his hair is phenomenal – mind your he is 57 and still has the ging-fro – and Lucic is just straight reppin the sox even after the bruins devastating loss just last week. That’s what Boston is about. Unity, and gingers…minus the gingers.

God damn you dad. #longhairdontcare

Celeb-RED-ies

I know that I have briefly discussed celebrities who take the risk and make the transformation of having a generic hair color to a fierce red, but recently there is one celebrity that I would have never imagined red hair to look good on; that actress being Brittany Snow. Dying your hair and taking the risk of becoming the ultimate ginger is not an easy task for most, especially those in the limelight because people WILL be seeing you and WILL be judging you. For me, however, Brittany looks so gorgeous with the new ginger locks I give her props for trying out the new style – I mean who wouldn’t want to be a redhead, right?!

Brittany has experimented with almost every hair color from dark brown to bright blonde so I think it was about her time to venture on over to the dark side as a redhead. I suggest all people who have icky hair colors to try it because redheads definitely have more fun, and I’m not going to sugar coat anything but we’re better than everyone else. Not because majority of us are funny, and awesome and a pleasure to be around more so than anybody with hues of yellow or brown in their hair, just because well, we’re better.

I hope Ms. Snow decides to leave her hair this beautiful color for a while because although I did love her when she had blonde hair, she just kills it as a redhead so I wouldn’t want to see her turn back to an unordinary human being. To see other celebrities who have dyed their hair red and can pull it off – aside from Rihanna and Rumor….sorry girls it’s just not working for you – check out this link!

Kids

Okay so nobody would really know this but I love little kids so much! Babies, tots, just up until the peak age of eight or so and I’m in love. They are literally the cutest, and funniest people on the face of the earth and I think it’s safe to say nobody can deny that. I came across this video the other day and was  falling off my chair laughing because of how god damn cute this six year old is. Smart, charming, hilarious – does it get any better than that? The best part about it is that he has an undeniable love for redheads, at the age of six! He even has a ginger girlfriend who is 26….kid is obviously the man. You guys seriously ALL have to check it out it is literally the cutest thing ever I had to share. It’s an interview of him on the Ellen DeGeneres Show talking about his love for redheads and his fascination of the solar system. Definitely something you have to watcht!!

 

Leslie is a very lucky girl.

Ginger Power!

Being a ginger myself it is only natural that my friends instantly let me know every time there is something they have watched or heard that revolves around the ginger race. I typically receive five or so comments a day alone on having red hair but I am also nearly always informed when something revolving a ginger is on television. The other day one of my friends texted me letting me know there was an episode of Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory on MTV that had a skit based around gingers.

Naturally I was eager to watch it and let me tell you I was in hysterics afterwards. Because I am not an uptight ginger it is so easy to laugh when people attempt to mock me. In fact the only way to be a successful ginger in this world is to have a sense of humor and be able to laugh at other people making fun of you. I was able to find a clip of it on youtube to share with you all in hopes you would find it as entertaining as I did! Rob and all of his friends wear red wigs and mess around as if they were in this skit Rob definitely also glorifies how awesome gingers are which makes it even more enjoyable! I hope you all agree!

I want to be a Weasley.

Alright so I’m not gunna lie I just drank a large iced coffee and I’m a little hyped up – excuse my rambling, or the tangents I’m sure I’ll go on when writing this – just like I’m doing right now. Aside from that, all you Harry Potter buffs out there, this post is for you.

When I was younger I loved the Harry Potter book series. While other kids were watching Are You Afraid of the Dark? or All That, I would be posted up on the couch reading about the adventures of a wizard and his buddies – exciting, I know. Now believe me this was not by choice of course, nobody wanted to be friends with a redhead. One of the reasons why I became so interested in the book and movie series was because of a character named Ron Weasley. The main reason I was drawn to him wasn’t just because he was this clumsy, lovable character that I believe to be even more bad ass then Harry himself, but he was a ginger as well. It’s almost like J.K. Rowling strategically placed Ron into her novels because she knew all the redheaded losers nobody wanted to hang out with would be at home reading her books and needed a hero like Ron to look up to. Pure genius she is.

Anyway, as I grew more fond of Ron and his ginger ways I learned he had an entire family full of gingers. Not just any family but the BEST family. Twin brothers who were hilarious, a sister who Harry Potter, only the coolest kid ever was in love with, three older brothers – one of which trained dragons, and just about the cutest parents anybody could ask for – could they get any better?!! Obviously not. If any of you reading this have seen the movies you know what I’m talking about. I would die to be a part of the Weasley family because they are the definition of ginger-perfection PLUS they have English accents to die for. All you gingers reading this know what I’m talking about. How awesome would it be to have a family who is just all ginger all of the time? Pretty. damn. awesome. Just watch how darn cute they are and try to argue with me reasons why you wouldn’t want to be apart of this family.  It’ll be hard, trust me.

On a  scale of 1 – I’d die to be a Weasley, where do you guys stand?

Obsessed?

Two words, TEAM COCO.

If someone told me I had to choose one man that I love more than anyone in the world, that man would be Conan O’Brien…sorry, dad. He is a hysterical ginger god that I just can’t seem to get enough of. I was pretty crushed when his talk show got cancelled and replaced a few years back, but since TBS has picked him up he has honestly made the greatest comeback in the late night industry. People who don’t watch his show or don’t find him funny – ginger racists, people who have no sense of humor etc. – should seriously rethink their existence. CONAN IS HILARIOUS. No questions asked. To top it all of his flawless flaming orange hair makes him ten times better. Seriously though his flow is impeccably kept…watch this clip and try to disagree.

He is so funny it hurts…literally. I watch him every night at 11 like clockwork and I am pretty sure he’s the reason why I’m in such good shape because I haven’t been to the gym in months. Just laughing my ass off for an hour straight has got to do a work on your body, right? I love this man and if there are gingers reading this post right now, it is a sin for you not to love him also…I’m pretty positive God created him to lead the ginger race.

If you have mixed feelings about Conan, or can’t get enough of him, watch this video and I guarantee it will have you laughing for days.

Wannabe

Over the past couple of years celebrities have been dyeing their hair to what I believe to be the most gorgeous color out there – RED. As I’m sure you didn’t see that coming, I do have to say this is a very flattering gesture being a redhead myself. So to all of you people out there who are constantly poking fun at redheads and making fun of how we are going extinct I am literally laughing in your face right now. I’m assuming these celebrities have the best and most well-informed stylists who have told them it’s a trend to have red hair and honestly, it is about time somebody has figured it out because I have been saying it all along. I know you’re all probably thinking this is ridiculous blah blah blah, but just you wait …I know how trends work and I know that pretty soon all you celebri-wannabes are going to drive to your local pharmacy and pick up some cheap hair die in a box. Who is laughing now ginger haters?

Some of these celebrities that are still going strong with this trend include musical artists Rihanna, Hayley Williams, and even Team Meatball (Snooki and Deena from the Jersey Shore). Now I’m not one to brag (yes I am) but I’m pretty sure all of these people are rolling in dough and they all have red hair and nobody is complaining or making fun of them in fact, fashion experts wish more celebrities would go red!

I think this is saying something about the world; the only way for a ginger to be accepted is to get famous. Seeing as I already feel as if I don’t belong in a small town because all I am to everyone is a big ginger joke, I think it’s time to move to Hollywood where redheads are accepted – and practically worshiped to say the least.

Rolling in the big ole pile of Grammy’s I just won…

I know it’s a little late and I’m sure everyone already knows that my girl Adele took home SIX Grammy awards last week, but I honestly cannot not blog about it. I know some of you may be saying that she “isn’t even a ginger anymore” but in all seriousness, everybody knows she is a ginger at heart. Although I’m obviously a little bitter about her hair change to the dumb side, everyone  experiments once in a while and I don’t hate her for it!

Adele is one of the greatest powerhouse singers out there today and she just makes it look way to easy to be heartbroken all of the time. Just snagging Grammy awards left and right like it ain’t to thing – you can sure bet that all of the people she was up against were pretty mad since she’s only been in the game for a few years. Then again, I literally don’t think there is a person out that doesn’t love her – yes guys, this includes you too…you know you stay in every other Friday night and belt out “Someone Like You” while eating a tub of Ben & Jerry’s, trying to hold back your tears.

She was nominated for Pop Vocal Album, Best Pop Solo Vocal Performance, Short Form Music Video, Record Of The Year, and Song Of The Year, and inevitably wound up winning them all. If I could, I would give her the award for Ginger of The Year (alongside me of course) because of how amazing she is.  Also, to rub it in everyone’s faces even more, she performed that night after she had undergone throat surgery just a few months before and absolutely killed it – click here to watch her performance. Keep on keepin’ on girl!

Shaun White Earns Perfect Score

If Shaun White earning a perfect score at the 2012 Winter X Games doesn’t justify how amazing gingers are then I don’t know what does. Not only did he go into this competition being a minority, but he went in injured with a left ankle sprain. Honestly, who does that?! I’ll tell you, Shaun White. This ginger-headed god scored the first perfect score in Winter X Games history for the Men’s Snowboard SuperPipe; I’m pretty sure that alone is enough to show how incredible gingers are.

How long do you think his competitors have been genuinely pissed off for because some pale guy with bright orange hair has been kicking their ass at everything they probably spend a year practicing that he takes ten minutes perfecting? Pretending to be happy for him every time he buries them in competitions and secretly dying on the inside. I think it’s time for people to start bowing down to this guy and gingers all over the world because we’re clearly taking over. Thoughts?

I mean just look at him; red-head flow for days.
