    LP11509 (the girl with a cute schnauzer) went to the same high school as some of my really good friends from college and is getting married in the same church as they did.  We also both went to Purdue.

    TR, where are you from in DE?  I've got family in Wilmington that went to the Friends school.

    Roxy and I both sell Scentsy and they do contests on their facebook page every once in a while and as I was browsing through, I saw her picture (same as her signature) and about flipped out. So, I PM'd her and the rest is history. haha. Then, from adding her on facebook.. I realized she went to the college that I applied to and ALLLLMOST went to.

    I was looking at a bio on my local board, and the bride's MOH was my high school nemesis.  I kind of think she knows because when I told her I knew her MOH, she didn't ask how I knew her. 

    Another bride on my local's husband went to my HS but he graduated before I was there.  I did know his little sister who was best friends with my best friend's sister.    We realized the connection during a poll--one question was "do you know anyone famous" and I said I went to HS with a country music singer, and the other girl said, wait, so did my husband.

    I never met anyone on my local who I'd actually met IRL.  Just Hensley and our shared decayed rat head experience!

    Oh, and I found one of my sorority sisters on Chit Chat.  And a friend from grad school is on my local, but that's nothing shocking since neither of us moved far after graduation.

    Matt, I'm from Wilmington.  I only knew two people who went to Friends, though.

    Oh, my two cousins, Ellen and Amy, graduated in 2005 and 2007 respectively.  Their family has a beach house in Bethany and we go a few times per year.  I love it!

    Haha Amoro I had completely forgotten about that until you brought it up. What a bunch of weirdos we had on that floor.

    Well, damn!  I am moving to the yellow line and everything! I do kind of wish I had said something but I always think of the worst case scenario of it not being you and then me looking like a giant creeper internet freak.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: TK Small World / IRL Close Calls? : I have recognized a regular poster from her bio and pictures (we went to school together), but I haven't said anything because (1) I think she'd be weirded out and (2) I'd like to remain somewhat anonymous

    You're not that far from where I used to live.  Now I need to know who this reg is.

    I had a girl I went to HS with PM'd me once - she's a vendor.  And, my MUA is also a bride, and she's posted (just as a bride) on our locals. 

    Oh, and my coworker in the cube next door is one of the newb/lurkers that comes to play just when the newsletter comes out.

    Mag works in the same industry and area as a girl I knew in college. I found this out because they're friends on FB. Actually, the girl's husband (then boyfriend) lived in my building and he and I wer involved in our hall council and the Resident Hall Association together.

    And Kati0105 used to shop at my Target - cause she used to live out here. ;-)

    Whew.  Cause, if you know me IRL, or knew me, or whatever, I'd rather somebody would just say so.  Not creepy to me.

    Ok :) if I ever meet you I'll be sure to tell you I know you!

    I should clarify, the girl used to be a reg, now she just posts occasionally, so its none of you that posted on this thread :)

    One of my pet sitting clients posts on my local.  We had a few polite conversations on TK before I noticed her pictures of her dogs in her bio and realized who she was. 

    I've never met her face to face -- just her dogs!

    Brie, I was so happy when I saw that! I really believe that's the most beautiful chapel I've ever seen. The stained glass is astonishing!

    There's a reg on here who's friends with one of my IRL friends. When I changed my avatar to the picture I currently have, she recognized me on his (the friend) FB. We've probably met a few times at his parties.

    Sco and I used to live 1 mile apart before I moved. She also grew up with one of the girls I went to college with.

    Mandapanda's cat looks exactly like my cat, except male and slightly bigger.

    There was also a fun one on the DC local a long time ago. Girls were talking about a G2G and asking the general area of where they lived. One gave her apartment name and another went "Oh shiit, I live there too!" Yeah, same building, one floor down.
