It's time for Mama Kat's WWW . Head on over and check it out. This week she's giving away a Flip- Video camera which I've been wanting so badly.
I chose to write about my favorite Halloween costume or moment that I had on video.
I was an awkward kid. Tall, skinny and gangly with red hair and freckles. It was not a pretty sight. Then when I was about 7, the movie Pippi Longstocking came out.
She was little girl with superman strength, cloaked in a scrawny redheaded body. It was suddenly cool to look like me! Needless to say, when Halloween came around I wanted to be Pippi and I was. My hair was long enough to braid into pigtails so my mom bent a length of hanger over my head and threaded it through my braids so that they would stick straight out to the sides. I wore striped socks and a striped shirt and would give anything to have a photo or better yet a video of that costume. I felt so special and for once my red hair and freckles were just right. It was many years before I could appreciate and be thankful for my hair color being different from most other people.
Fact: Only 1% to 2% of the world's population has red hair.
