    ohhhhhhhh Erin, don't forget VA Trainer and the virtues of the tack noseband!!!

    Also, you should at least vaguely remember the Porch.

    [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] You get extra points if you know who the human behind the Urchin is, and what he does for a "real job"... although at this point I think the jokes have sort of morphed into a being of their own.

    You are confident that no gathering is complete without Peeps.

    You know exactly how well ETBW cooks and that Mr. Wings' barbecue is the best.

    Your COTH fix runs out so quickly that you check the BBs before going to the bathroom in the morning after getting out of bed. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    You know the difference between PK and PPP [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] and that they are horses while FPP is a place to meet.

    You can actually understand Moesha's twisted tales! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

    You know that GDG is head and shoulders above the rest of us. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    .... You know what Question for Merry was about!!

    (Thanks to that topic for launching the CA Clique, where I have met a number of people that have subsequently become close friends). [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif[/img]

    It was the West Coast version of 'Double Jeopardy', at about 1/3 the page length.... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    ~every virtual conversation begins with "My friends on the COTH board..."

    ~You know where Mosby's is AND how to get there... and you don't even live in Virginia!

    ~You know which BBer has a Tiara.

    ~The word 'uber' starts popping up in your virtual conversations.

    ~You start thinking Alex Trebec, Hillary Clinton and Alan Greenspan really ARE posting here!

    Your COTH friends know more about you than your own mother.

    You snail mail a BBer, realize you don't know her last name, so you write her screen name on the envelope instead.

    You've completely replaced your show wardrobe because a post on the hunter/jumper board revealed it was passe.

    You respond to your screen name faster than your real one.

    The colors light yellow and white together give you a peculiar sense of contentment.

    You're completely unsure of how to express yourself on paper without the aid of graemlins.

    You run up and check the boards during commercial breaks.

    You make odd typing motions in your sleep.

    You've had a dream about more than one COTH member.

    Family members of your COTH friends know who you are.

    You've considered naming your dog after a BBer.

    You've acquired a horse or a pet through another BBer.

    ... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] Most people get therapy for this kind of thing.

    Has it ever occurred to you that there might be a difference between having an open mind and having holes in one's head?

    Did you see I had your name in? Then I thought, naw it's Alan Greenspan that's always posting, so I quick edited it before the 'edited by...' kicked in.

    By the way, I love you. You were the one who turned me off Elephants and onto Donkeys! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    How about when you can figure out a few anagrams for Chronicle of the horse, such as "The fresh, choicer loon" "Shh! Enter choicer fool" "Eh! Coherent rich fools" "The rich fools or hence".

    You don't know Portia's real name, but sit behind her for the dressage at Rolex whispering, "Portia, Portia, Portia ..." and she responds!

    Joliemom recognizes you in the food vendor area at Rolex because of your chemically-enhanced white teeth.

    When you meet face to face with BB'ers, you squeal like pigs and give each other big bear hugs!
