Traffic jam

Wow. It would seem that I'm getting an awful lot of traffic today. 2600 hits and counting...I'm overwhelmed, but always happy to welcome new readers! I realize that the vast majority of you are visiting Yours Truly's humble blog via Diane Mapes' very funny msn.com article.

Thank you all for visiting. As they say in Ireland, “Céad Míle Fáilte” (a hundred thousand welcomes). Get yourselves a cup of tea and a sweet roll, make yourselves comfortable, and stay as long as you like!

I am printing the msn article as I type this. I have been a freak magnet for a while now, and I'm glad (and sad for us!) that I'm not the only one out there.

I just had an assinine IM conversation with a friend of mine...

He says only women are freak magnets. Men don't attract freaky women....whatever man!
LMAO....

Either way, I did come by your haven because of said MSN article.

Welcome blah blah blah!

Sure, some men attract freaky women (and men sometimes, too). I do find that it happens to women more often...gives us a bit of insight into our culture, I think.

Regardless, men are not immune!

Hi Ginger,

What may be a tad bit freaky is that I'm reading a blog. ...Will adjust. An article popped up about your blog in my live.com page. I couldn't resist.

Well, greetings from Wisconsin. Don't know about the roll, but a cup of tea sounds good right now.

Mr. Marc

Well I'm glad there's at least one other red head who attracts the strange. Hopefully the strange people never moved in with you (like me in the past) God am i glad I live alone now... :)

Wow, now I know I'm not alone. I've been a closet freak magnet from the time I was a young girl and the wierdest kid in the neighborhood had a crush on me. The freak I remember the most was the guy who's pick up line was "Did you ever notice how round pool balls are? I mean just look at em', wow." Sighhhhhhhhh

I found your blog via the msnbc article. I am a fellow freak magnet and am equally amused/terrified by/of my experiences! Thanks for your blog. Very entertaining. I'll be back!

I'm also a ginger who tends to attract weirdos! Recently I was chatted up by a foreign man with one arm on the tube, a man tried to woo me by singing reggae, a kid stroked my arm seductively and run of, had a Greek man throw pettles over me as well as a sequence of men who had weird personalities, red hair fetish and strange obsessions with me. Not to mention gay guys pretending to be straight and lesbians wearing edible thongs. I put it down to the fact that I don't like to be mean to people so I tend to chat to people and appear friendly. I am also a bit of a freak myself. i have been told I stand out because of my hair and my slightly crazy approach to life.My friend found this article very funny because he said he explains what happens to me. I have to say I don't mind it because I like to relay the stories and occassionally you find people who are not too freakish but just a little different that talk to you who are very attractive.

Hi,

I'm also sent from the MSNBC article. I'm so happy to learn about this because I always thought I was a freak magnet, but now I see I'm just a geek magnet. Phew!

NOW I know why I have had 5 strange husbands. I should have been less sympathetic and certainly kept my mouth shut. THIS perfectly describes the events of my life and LOL how many MORE times could I have been married to Freaks? I have given up that idea for good.

i love your column!! i have had a hard time convincing my friends that i attract the freaks in the room. when my bff and i vacationed, i would attract the cousin it's and comparable weirdos, while desperately trying to make eye contact with the not so freakish men. i can't figure it out.. even walking with a bitchy face isn't much of a deterrent.

it's nice being reassured i'm not alone in attracting the guy on the bus who only shaves one half of his moustache or the lady on the opposite side of the road who collects discarded umbrellas and always wears a tiara. i have been having a rather large number of encounters with 'colorful folks' i'd say since i reached puberty.
i don't think of myself as being all that strange, but i do have an extremely fruitcaked-up family tree, with schizophrenia and homelessness on both sides of the family, so i figure either i emit hormones that are crazy-friendly or it's just that i'm initially pretty accepting of anybody regardless of whether they're a flasher or not.
anyway, yes, i did see the article on msnbc.com through reddit.com. and i just wanted to say i'm having a bit of a laugh here.

The MSN article directed me to your blog and I love it!! I really thought I was the only freak-magnet. You should start a support group! I'll head the East Coast Division!!

Thanks for the hard work!

Thank you everyone! I had no idea how many of us are out there. Not sure whether I should be happy or sad about that....

What strikes me as odd (besides taking the time to post to this) is that given you're a freak magnet, you're still more than willing to appear on an msn article.

Man, I'm smart.

Call me.

Blogger Ginger said...

LOL Anon, you're not *that* smart - you don't "appear" on an msn article. You just get quoted ; )

Besides, since you obviously took the time to read the article, you'll know that I refuse to live my life in a bubble. That's no fun at all.

Ever since I wandered on to Ginger's blog, I've felt a strange attraction to her. He he he.

Do you ever wonder how many people read your stories here, Ginger, and get a new perspective on their own behavior?

Another redheaded freak magnet here. I wonder if it's something about being a redhead, that we're sort of freaks ourselves because there are comparably so few natural redheads out there. Anyway, I'm so glad I saw that MSNBC article and clicked over here. I've been reading some of your archives, and they're cracking me up!!! Thanks for sharing.

medicine man,
I do hold out some hope that guys who heckle/catcall/grab women/expose themselves to women see how ridiculous and offensive that kind of behavior is, and re-evaluate a little. But for the most part, if people stop and visit and have a laugh, that's good enough for me.

mocoholo,
Red hair definitely gets attention, I've noticed. I've been brunette, though, and the freaks still found me!

When you are attempting to save on your utility bill, try to use your roof enthusiast a lot more in the summertime. A ceiling lover will help you to make any place truly feel about 10 degrees colder, and it fees a lot less to perform than an aura conditioner does.

Make sure that you are doing all you can to safeguard your joint parts, even the ones that usually are not leading to you pain at the moment. If you are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, don't lift several things with your hands. For instance if you are preparing food, rather than picking up the pot, make an effort to slip it over the kitchen counter to make it simpler. [url=http://www.ss12w12ws.info]Illnerev5ss[/url]
