    Colin's a girl [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    and

    Moesha's a boy! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]


    Since it confused me at the beginning as well I feel their pain!

    Someone asked me once if I was named after the (Canadian) Bag and Leather store.... I'm hoping that my precious boy was at least named after one of the most expensive types of car in the world, not some place that sells backpacks [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Ford gas: triton
    Ford diesel: powerstroke

    I have heard the that Ford bought Cummins, but I'm not sure...

    I pronounced findeight oddly in my head for a while. Chalk me up for Vermont Rider as well... I still don't know what sbt78lw means, I still see it as Sad But True, 78 Lost Weight... (which i just totally made up in my head)

    Though I've never asked, I imagine that sbt78lw is equivalent to: name (sbt being initials), year of birth (78), and horse's name (lw -- 'Lady ____'). Perhaps she'll finally let us in on the secret! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Thankfully someone recently typed out "P. Wynn Norman" for pwynnnorman....because my poor brain kept reading it is 'pony-woman' with just far too many extra letters.

    I kept doing the same pony woman thing...
    I also changed my name because I became stupid and kept reading your posts, thinking, I didn't write that? Which is ridiculous because yes they both were a long but real words, and both started with Seren... but really, I should have been able to figure that out, but I finally gave up [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I am STILL convinced that VTrider = Vermont rider, no matter what she says.....

    .[/QUOTE]



    Me too until that was cleared up for me a few months ago--however, I still see it in my head as Vermont!

    As far as PWYNNORMAN, i thought it was a Welsh place name....they always have lots of y's in them [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    The others are pretty straight forward for me to figure out, and I just skip them in a lot of ways.

    I needed a smile at work today!

    lmlacross is my initials ("'L'ea" and "'M'arie") combined with my last name ("LaCross").

    Although, I get TONS of people who mistake the first lower case "L" for an "I"-- understandable, I guess.

    Llama cross made me think of people playing some version of polocrosse on llamaback.

    It took me a couple to days to realize that rakpat wasn't actually rat pack - I knew there was something wrong with it, I just didn't know what [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    I see VTrider as "vermont rider" too...I'll never get over that one.

    lmlacross is also "llama cross"

    I have no idea what sbt78lw is but I try to figure it out every time I see it...

    SimpsoMatt turns into Matt Simpson, and then I always think of the El Campeon horses from there...

    Last night I dreamed I ate a ten pound marshmallow, and when I woke up, the pillow was gone.

    ...and thanks for thinking of me, Colonel Tavy! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Let's see, the ones I butcher are...

    dogchushu, I always think "dogchusu," like some new form of karate/judo!
    lmlacross= I'm LaCross
    dikecnadnus= dikenadus
    rakpat= pack rat
    khobstetter is just that: "Khobstetter," not K. Hobstetter
    Linny and Fred: I keep thinking they're both guys! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Winglet IS Everythingbutwings' kid
    Auntie Pat is ETBW's sister
    Proof Set (aka Princess Maddie) owns ETBW
    Mr. Wings is also owned by Proof Set

    Anytime Sarah, lol. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] It took me forever to figure that out (you know, after I read your post explaining it [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] )!

    And you're not the only one - I always think of "Khobstetter".....and lmlacross will always be "llama cross" to me [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] ...

    And everything you guys said, Knob-stetter-, Llama Lacross, but then I decided it was IM Lacrosse (like Instant Message, or I Am)
    Wow.... another one that gets me... is Tucked Away.. it makes me think of a pony we had once named Tucked something... And Kryswn, what does it mean? I love saying it!
