    In lieu of the huffiness in response to 'most annoying username', I was thinking we could all post with what our usernames mean, no matter how petty or how deep the analysis might be [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] Should be fun, especially some of the alter egos!
    I'll go first- it doesn't REALLY mean anything, since I don't have a pony, but when I was little and I would go galloping around the house jumping footstools my dad would call me 'Emma Pony'.

    Jo's my name. The AKA part changes when I feel like it, it's pretty self explanatory. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    When I got my new horse I had to find a name for him. While watching tv one night, I saw a commerical for Chevy trucks, complete with Duramax diesel engines. I liked it, and then used his name as my name! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Wellll...

    My name is Kate and when I was a little kid my older brothers and sister called me Katy O'Grady Potatey Head. Inexplicably. Our surname is NOT O'Grady. Sometimes this name was alternated with Katy O'Grady The Cleaning Lady.

    I made the mistake of telling a college friend of mine about this name, and now everyone calls me Potato Head. Anyway, KatyO is a take-off on all that.

    KatyO, I used to call my sister "Katy the Reading Lady" because she was always reading. Soon that transformed into "Katy, Katy, reading lady, sitting on the potty". Oh, the originality...

    As for my username, I'm a Spaz and I like numbers, so I just added 00. I'm sure if you ask anyone, they will agree that I am surely a Spaz.

    Well, Sparky was one of my favorite school horses of all times. He would make you work to get him going in your lessons, but the second you got on him bareback or took him to a horse show he acted like a kid. He was in his late 30s when he died, and I was soooo sad. It was a huge loss for our barn. ::sniff sniff:: And the Christmas parties have not been the same since. No more Sparky drinking beer and Schnapps and racing around like a "young buck."

    22 is my former basketball number. Played in high school, and was my main comfort when everyone was down in FL all winter long. I would still go to the barn, but often there were no horses to be ridden, so bball is like my horse...lol. It was my substitution.

    I feel for your sister. I'm just glad that the word "potty" didn't make it into my childhood nickname. It's bad enough as it is!

    I have a weanling filly who really loves to be rubbed. When she was real small got very upset when you would pat her. So for her barn name she is "Rubs Not Pats" or just Rubs for short. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Mine is pretty self-explanatory. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] Although now I wish I'd chosen something more original so I wasn't constantly confused with Erin the moderator (not that it's a BAD thing...), but I'm used to this one! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> Soon that transformed into "Katy, Katy, reading lady, sitting on the potty". <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    LOL, when I was younger, I used to torture my little sister. Once I took a picture of her in the bathtub, once I got her to pose naked [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] and once sitting on the "potty:. Before I realized that the people who develop the pictures can see them. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

    I also convinced her that when she was a baby she fell off the Empire State Building, and that for her first birthday we took her to Antarctica and rented an igloo. Then there was the "brain game" I played with her... when she was good, I'd call her "football brain" or "bathtub brain" or when she was REALLY good, "washing machine brain" (ie, "your brain is so big, it is the size of a washing machine). But when she annoyed me, I'd call her "peanut brain" or "lint ball brain". Relatives were concerned that she took "boat brain" as the highest compliment and would cry if she got called "ant brain".

    Oh yeah, and then there was the time I somehow convinced her to take a walk down the road with my friend and I wearing nothing but her bathrobe... and then yanking off the bathrobe when we got to the community clubhouse... whereupon she ran home shrieking clad only in her underpants...

    And we also used to have an ongoing joke calling each other "pig" and "cow" (humorous I suppose because we're both skinny). That started like 8 years ago and to this day my nickname is Piggy (hence my AOL screen name).

    I could go on. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]
