Happy Gingerday everyone!


(For Sam, the windswept ginger (gingerous comboverous) A rare specimen, found near lochs and squinty eyes women, known to be aggressive and dangerous when cornered. Can be bred from. Bellicose. Best avoided during mating season. And also any other season)






Top of the busy busy morning to you, I hope Gingerday finds you well and at peace with the world. No break ups, breakouts, breaking limbs or break dancing I'm sure.
Wither the result to yesterday's voting? I hear and read turn out was low, although the BBC are saying there was a strong turnout for the 'no vote'.
How can there have been a low turn out? Don't folk want a say in what happens to our fair isle? Apathy how are ye?
Speaking of apathy and passive surrender, the stupidest thing I've read today has to be Spain's latest 'mental health issue.' It appears worried parents are putting their children in the hands of Spain's mental health association, why? Mobile Phone addiction.
I fucking kid you not.

Observe, from the Beh Beh Cay.

'Two children in Spain have been admitted to a mental health institution to be treated for addiction to their mobile phones, Spanish media report.

The children, aged 12 and 13, were sent to the clinic by their parents, who said they could not carry out normal activities without their handsets.

They were doing badly at school and lying to relatives in order to get money to spend on their phones.

They have been learning to cope without their phones for three months.

Dr Maite Utges, who runs the Child and Youth Mental Health Centre in Lleida, near Barcelona in north-eastern Spain, said it was the first time the clinic had treated children who were dependent on their mobile phones.

"They both showed disturbed behaviour and this exhibited itself in failure at school. They both had serious difficulties leading normal lives," she was quoted in Spanish papers as saying.

The children had owned their phones for 18 months, and their parents had made little effort to restrict their use before noticing how serious their dependence had become.'


See, I knew mobile phones were savage. Remember people, it's never your fault, it's society and her ilk.

I'm not sure he is sufficiently ginger FMC (more a strawberry blonde) - but I will bow to your superior knowledge of all things ginger.

True he is the lighter of the gingers, but a ginger no less. A shetland pony to my carrottopian stallion.

Is it a ginger wig, or does he sport his own golden mane?

He's probably planning on suing the wind after these photos. I just want to give him a sugar-cube.

I'm hearing a 45ish% turnout with no in the ascendancy at the start but as more results come in, the Yeses are making a stronger showing now

It's a bloomin' complicated document,that much is sure.

Trump's hair (all natural, baby) is the only reason I don't completely detest the man. That this is so makes me wonder if I have the beginnings of a ginger addiction (and an odd one at that) myself. Maybe I need the expert attention of a mental health professional.

I'm not sure what diagnostic criteria the Spaniards use, but here the door is left wide open for that kind of stuff by a single criterion common to most if not all diagnoses: the behavior exhibited has to be troublesome to self AND others. Which is why homosexuality got removed from the list of APA-sanctioned diagnoses a couple decades ago. There are still a few diehard psychs. out there looking to score some bucks to turn people hetero, of course, which is where the dr's treating these kids come in. Any dr who doesn't say to the parents, "There is such a thing as cutting this little bastard off, you know," doesn't deserve his or her license.

Now now, cutting the little bastard off is not the job of a parent, you know that. No darling, society is to blame. Here, I'll send you a pamphlet saying so.

Trump has the taint of evil about him whereas CT (the ginger friday favorite) just seems cartoonish.

The taint of eeevil. I like it.

God this day is so freaking long. Roll on kickboxing class. I could do with pummeling something. Also I could do with a beer. I believe I might have one of those too.
