Twenty-five things you did not know about me (6-10)

Well here it is folks, five more items about the life and times of Karen. I hope you enjoy the read; I enjoyed the trip down memory lane. 6. I would talk about wine, but everyone and their sister knows I love my Chardonnay. 7. I color my hair. Yes, I do! I have been doing this since childhood when my mother didn’t like that my platinum blonde head was turning dark. She spiked the shampoo with hydrogen peroxide until I was old enough to read labels and figured out what she was doing. I went to a professional stylist in college, then to the commercial box-on-a-shelf, and am now back to professional color. I have been a blonde, red head, brunette, and am contemplating strawberry blonde for this coming spring. Heaven help us! 8. I went to an overnight camp for a few years, and participated in a raid. This is when you sneak out at night when the counselors are smoking and joking in the canteen. We visited the boys’ side of camp. Of course we were discovered and were grounded from the weekend dance, but who cared? It was fun! 9. I attended two colleges as an undergrad. My freshman and sophomore years were spent at the University of Pittsburgh. I entered the school of education in August…I did it this way because the school’s quota for liberal arts was full. I was lucky to get in as my high school grades were less than stellar and my SAT scores were deplorable. 10. I graduated with a B.S. in Education from Temple University. One full semester of credits from Pitt did not transfer, so I had to spend two summers making up the credits. It was OK, however, as the summer program was much easier and the campus more laid back. Stay tuned...numbers 11 to 15 are close behind. Until then... Karen
