    anyway...I grew up on Req Equestrian(old Usenet) where anon postings were viewed with disdain and if you were man enough to say something, you used your real name to do it for the most part.
    so there you go.
    LOL, I never ventured much into the walking forums on AOL...ah, good times...when AOL was the gold standard, not a running joke!

    goes like stink is a Brit slang term for something pretty darn fast.
    (but I don't think the intention was to end up with a COTH abbreviation of 'Stinky' in the end...)

    Yes, totally! We need proof. Please.

    Reese, I'm sorry we've never met! I place myself firmly in the nice, non-c*#tish Maryland horse community. Unfortunately, as of tomorrow I'll be trying to find that group in the Research Triangle of North Carolina

    I thought I'd heard it used like that, and I do admit I abbreviate it to Stinky in my own mind as well. I don't think Stinky is the kind of gal who would worry too much about that.

    I think some people think of me as SmartA$$. SmartAlex was actually my most favorite horse ever. Although I think I owned him for the shortest amount of time of any.

    I always thought you meant it like smart-aleck, what you'd say if you wanted to call someone a smart-ass in front of your grandmother. Great horse name.

    Unforgettable is my horse, so named because he was born with a huge white belly spot, which would make him stick out like a sore thumb in the show ring (Arab). I had the mods change my handle after I posted details about a creepy local horse abuser sex fiend that had been released...I used to post under my real name (Sharon Potter). I'm pretty much exactly who I say I am...my life has had enough adventure without having to make some up.

    My name's an acronym, you guys.

    It was actually YBIAF, but then I forgot my password and couldn't retrieve it because I also lost the password to the email account, so I changed it to YBIAW but all lower case because I'm a REBEL.

    It came about as a joke on the song Your Body Is A Wonderland (YBIAW) by John Mayer...my horse's show name was Wonderland....barn name Frisbee....so I used to call the song Your Body Is A Frisbee (YBIAF).

    I hate "ybiaw" a whole lot....but figure its better to keep the name than to start over as a greenie on this board!!!
    Everyone is running from something. Especially this person I'm chasing.

    I just opened this thread -- who knew such fun was going on? My entire COTH existence is a lie. I do have a tractor, but it is a JD and I do not spell with a Russian accent.

    We did, however, own a Ford when I was growing up, before the entire family turned green. At least one COTHer boards her horse at my dad's farm, but she arrived after the blue one left so you have to take my word for it. Or not.

    I would assume that "said accused" has been sent PMs by people wanting her to know about it.

You remember, how we went to The Noodle Co. for lunch, and then to Starbucks for dessert (I ordered a Green Tea Frap, with whipped cream). And about how our "lunch date," which we had assumed would be maybe an hour or so out of our respective days; turned into 5+ hours of talking and talking and talking- about anything and EVERYTHING! And then literally as we were getting up to finally leave Starbucks, a MASSIVE thunderstorm with seriously torrential rain rolled up on us; at which point we decided to sit back down and continue chatting until it passed

    I have a horrible memory, and forget a lot of things... but I will never forget that day; or remembering how I thought to myself, "hey, not every horse person in this area is a bitchy, nasty, lying c*nt... this girl is *real*!;" and being so grateful that we met.

    And I agree with Lex!!! I'm dying of curiosity now... c u at x, please do PM me with the details that you deleted from your post... I totally missed that; and even though I no longer ride, I'm still nosy as hell
    PM sent!

    Reese-riffic, I'm so glad you reminded me...please forgive my old age and memory lapse! My only excuse besides old age is that I typed that message while in a hurry yesterday so I missed not only you, but a few other wonderful COTHers as well. You are right, though, in that our first meeting was a totally memorable and cool experience! I'm was very concerned that you might be horrible and stuck up and not nearly as cool as you came across online, but my worries were for nothing. Deep down, I have remnants of the shy, awkward, and self-conscious kid that I used to be, so I was very worried that you would think I was a complete dork or loser. You are truly one of the few bright, shining, and awesome horse people in Southern Maryland (at least that I've met, anyway), and I am forever grateful for your friendship.

    I have to tell you guys how awesome Reese is. When I had to put my beloved 15 y.o. cat to sleep a few months ago, Reese met me and my boyfriend at the vet's office for moral support. I had him his entire life and this was my first time putting an animal to sleep, so it was very difficult. It really meant the world to me that she got up early on a Saturday morning to be there with us, especially because she wasn't feeling well! For as hilarious and badass as she comes across to most of the world, she has the best heart and is one of the kindest and sweetest people I know.

    Regarding the not-so-nice person I mentioned previously, as I said, her name has already been stated on this thread. Usually her posting has to do with providing a "forever home," which is a crock of s**t.

I have never posted about my job or a co-worker but I give more glimpses into my personality and beliefs on FB than I want the office to have!
    Totally with you on the co-workers thing. For that matter, I won't FB friend anyone I see on a daily/weekly basis. I reserve FB for people/family who live far from me. I figure I already know all I want (or in the case of my co-workers, far more than I want to know) about people I see daily/weekly. I do not need or want to know what they put on FB on a daily basis. My FB profile is also set to "non searchable" so no one can find me without my permission. I do keep a separate FB account under my maiden name (which I almost never update). The main purpose of that one was to try to find a university friend who I'd lost touch with after she moved following her wedding. Some HS friends (I moved away after HS) actually found me that way, and I have friended them, and do check that FB account once a month or so.

    I'm honest with the co-workers/local friends who want to friend me though. I just tell them, "I don't FB friend anyone I see every day. I already know too much about you!" No one seems to be bothered by that.

    Yeah, she is quite the catch that one. Super-Model good looks, a heart as big as a McMansion, and the vocabulary of a rocket scientist. A very rare combination of qualities in these parts.

    Great Scots, you've actually met her?!? I wish I had a dollar for every time I've heard the words "like" and "You know what I mean?" come out of her mouth. I'd be a freakin' millionaire. Please tell me that you've met the trainer, too? I tried PM'ing you all the dirt I have, but I assume you have to block PMs and such since you're our resident 100% certified choice man-beef.
