    Thanks for the info, Ann... if I ever decide to stalk the divine Mr. Roth, I'll know where to find him... BTW, do you know there whereabouts of Ewan McGregor?

    Other fetishes... How could I forget GLOVES? Leather riding, suede, calf, evening, opera, crocheted, cashmere, SSGs... I have them all. And whips... for someone who no longer owns, I have an inordinate number of whips, including an eight-foot Hungarian "ladies bullwhip" ("ladies" because it has yellow leather flowers on the handle!)

    Well, I don't have many SECRET addictions, most are pretty obvious (horses, the COTH BB, etc)...

    Thoroughbred racing [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] (well, my secret kinda got out when I taped the Breeders' Cup and spent approx. three hours drooling over gorgeous racehorses and cheering my favorites on to the finish in front of my family members)
    Horses with French names (don't ask)
    Doberman Pinschers [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] (DON'T TELL ANYONE!!!)
    Good-looking riders who ride well [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] (SHHHHHHHHH!!! I'd be teased more about this than the above)
    Not really an addiction, but for some odd reason, I have fun peeling potatoes with a carrot peeler. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Well, that's about it for SECRET stuff (which really aren't secret anymore)!

    I have a serious addiction to buying flip flops - I cant help it, it cant be healthy.. Then I have this nasty habit of losing them, ugh.. also, this is so weird - I am obsessed with white shirts.. weird? I think so.. white collared shirts, tank tops, sweaters - its become so bad that I have to take my friend with me so she doesnt let me buy them!! also, belts, but not plain black and brown ones, oh no, ones with tropical fish and alligators and lobsters and red chili peppers and grateful dead bears and I can go on! I am such a dork with my obsessions! lets see what else, OH jeans!! and especially since I finally found jeans with a *35 inch* inseam from Jcrew, I am in LOVE!! Also, I am totally smitten by the horses out where I ride, especially Delighted's bad boys! Hm ginger ale, saltines, wheat thins, chicken salad yumm - yogurt, cookie dough - this BB, my music!! Counting Crows, LIVE (mmm curly haired Ed) and I watch ER, Will and Grace, and The X Files religiously.. hmm I guess none of this is secret to those who know me! I am also shamlessly addicted to chapstick/lip gloss of any kind.. I own like 40 tubes, and when I get sick of one I go buy more! also I am addicted to shampoos, the better smelling the more likely it is I will buy it - my shower is like a huge collection of shampoo bottles and body washes and face washes -can you be nasally fixated? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] I think i may be! hmm anyway thats all I am willing to admit to, Im sure there are more but I have way too much homework.. also, a new 6'1" dark funny obsession I have now too!!

    Oh, forgot a few: Candy corn (but only the orange-and-yellow kind); analyzing horse gaits and rhythm; and DEEP debates... "Deep" as in rollkur, not deeply spiritual, though rollkur debates can get like that too...

    Okay, these are just the addictions that no one really knows about (though y'all know now)... I have a much longer list of all other addictions!

    Oh, I thought it would have been Bumpkin Bumpkin-ing up this old thread for sure!

    My addictions: diet Coke, Smirnoff Ice (almost wish it didn't have alcohol in it), baby carrots with Dilly Dip, cheese tortellini.

    Chocolate anything (haven't tried chocolate-covered bugs yet, but if I were desperate for a fix... )

    Mango/green tea smoothies. I'd indulge more often if they didn't cost $3.99.

    Vetrolin products (for the horse, not me!) Vetrolin liniment, Vetrolin bath, Vetrolin shine...I NEVER run out...
