    that post she wrote sounds like a scene from Gray's Anatomy or E.R.

    I apologize axl - I guess if I was really She-Ra I would have blasted you with some sort of deathray or something.
    Calling someone a doodyhead is kind of lame for a Mistress of the Universe

    So - I have to confess:
    with basic training under your belt, you are actually more entitled to the Crown than me anyhow

    And someday I will figure out what it means, and how to pronounce it! I've only been trying for the past 6 years, but someday I WILL succeed!!!

    my job also really does include both props and ponies. Don't believe me? Throw down with me some time over theatre history trivia! I DARE YOU! MWUAHAHA! ;-p

    Me up at does is a line from a poem - by e.e. cummings, I THINK. Something about a mouse.

    I am Spartacus.



    "maunder" actually means to wander aimlessly, which is what I like to do in the woods.

    Ah, e e cummings. That would explain why I have had trouble making sense of that user name.

    Disclaimer: My name isn't dressagetraks. Though I do ride dressage and do have Trakehners.

    I am an English major and really have extensively studied literature, poetry included. However, e e cummings never really lit my fire. I'm a Shakespeare kinda gal.

    Scenario 3:

    Scenario 4:
    Grataan NOT falsely accused, comes here and says "Yeah, okay, I pretended" and we all go "huh, interesting" and forgive Grataan (and yes, this has happened on this board). Then we all have wine.

    Scenario 5:
    Grataan NOT falsely accused, goes away quietly, alters come to defend said person and more wine shows up.

    Either way, there's wine and popcorn involved.
    Well, as long as there's wine and popcorn, it's ok then.

    And for the record, my name is cheval convert but it is no longer true. I no longer own a cheval canadien, I now own a "Rastafarian". (That's a percheron/fjord pmu horse that has a very laid back attitude and would look great in beads and dreadlocks.)

    But I hate popcorn. It gets stuck in my teeth and sometimes those little shardy bits lodge themselves in my throat and I can't get them out!

    Voting for chips and guacamole here.

    So... does it count if you ASPIRE to your screen name? I long to be Barbaric. I think it's a good long-term goal. Something to grow into, if you will.

    I used to call my horse my horse before he actually was my horse because I wanted him to become my horse.

    WC means something naughty from my naughty younger days that I shan't reveal

    Oh and I really am a vet even though I have always claimed I'm not.

    So...phew I feel better for getting that off my chest.

    Apparently it's been done:

    I hope Gully will be ok.
    That post was in response to this reply:

    And Jumpin_Horses is real and has a horse that can jump. And buck. And run around with her donkey pals and roll in mud. I even know where she lives. Mwahaha haaaa....(my horses used to live there)

    Oh, and I can't think of M's screen name, but I've met her horse and her and we boarded briefly at the same place here in VA.

    Who else can I confirm existence of? LOL
    Me, Me!
    We have talked on the phone, so I know you are probably real.

    My odd "accent" posting reflects my real heavy accent in person.

    I come back after about an hour and so many more pages already?

    I guess none of us want to be called "impostors", oh no.
    Those of us not in the public eye are here incognito, because we come from the witness protection program.

    I know some of you are having fun with this, but doesn't anyone else think it's terribly sad that someone would have such a low sense of self-worth that they would invent a career and even a husband ?

    Bluey, I thought of including you but since I haven't actually SEEN you....

    You COULD just be a fake Bluey/Merry and have been faking the accent to boot! Who KNOWS?!?!?!

    Can anyone else confirm your physical existence? LOL

    Kidding of course. Yes, I'll vouch for you. But now, who will vouch for me? I guess I do have a lot of board buddies in my wedding pics.
    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...

    Oh gosh last week I had to move Guacamole Friday up one day.... looks like I'll be busting out the avacados and coronoas two days early this week.

    It is kinda sad when people are so enveloped in their online "life" that they stretch or fabricate the truth.... I used to be surprised when these kinds of stories popped up but after all the drama I've seen on parenting/mommy forums, that is really, really bizarre, COTH doesn't surprise me so much anymore!!
    We couldn't all be cowboys, so some of us are clowns.
