- I thought your name is Karen. Why are you Wizzy?
Because Wizzy is cooler sounding than Karen.
Actually, when I was a little girl, my parent’s friends kept asking me my name, and they’d all laugh after I said, with all seriousness: “Ka-wen…..Wizza-beff.” There was always a distinct pause, as if my middle name deserved extra emphasis. Entering the online world, I had a ball with all the usernames I could have – naming myself Peppergal, Sue DoNimm, and my favorite, Wizzy_Pigabeth, (long story) which was shortened to Wizzy. in honor of my middle name. My husband merely calls me “Honey“. One of my friends calls me KATO, from “Karen-At-The-Office.” I like everything, it seems, except Karen. ha ha!
- So who are you, really?
Legally, I am Karen E. Rice, real estate agent by day, real estate agent by night, mother of three, wife to one, all the time. I have a “professional” blog where I write in a business like manner, most of the time. This is my playtime blog.
- Why two blogs? Can’t you just say what you want on the other one?
Well, I could but I’d rather keep PikeWaynePAblog.com purely a professional real estate blog, keeping my personal life separate from the business life. I may write something religious, sarcastic, political, or any number of “off topic” items that may be considered inappropriate on a business blog. (My customers are more than welcome to read my personal blog if they want!)
- Why are You Hugging A Giant Latte?
Because I live for coffee. I distorted the picture so you can’t see how fat I am from drinking all the lattes, Dr Peppers, Coca-Cola, and other stuff that will eventually kill me.
- Why don’t you eat and drink healthier things?
Because statistics show that 100% of people who eat healthy die.
This picture of my kids, taken in Kansas City MO, is a great picture of the way I want to live my life:
Overflowing with energy & enthusiasm, and having enough sense to show restraint when it’s the smart thing to do.
