I hate emoticons. They are like giving yourself away. Might as well show your naked self. My son wrote to me once and said some dogs are into pleasing their owners and some not :) Might as well have said that my dogs were spoiled *****--cause that's the way that I took it and I can write well enough to express my emotions without hiding them behind some emoticon that does nothing but make your inner thoughts visible. Words--use your words. Sometimes, we all need to imagine what Anne Bolyn felt the night before she got her head lopped off--two years earlier and that king would have died for her, but she missed her window and nothing--no words, no emoticons could save her cause sometimes--nothing is all there is. He did love her enough to hire a French executioner and while she kneeled and prayed he said where's my sword and before she could even think it--her head was off. Hey--for the Tudors that was love. I guess that I'm saying that no matter how you emote in type--real people are living and dying in real lives. I know that is a bummer answer--too smart and remember everything. It's a curse.
I agree...there are not enough. I have emoticon angst! The need to use them is a riot to me :}
You so should! I have a new one I use for my 'grrrr' moments... }:( What's interesting though, is that while I do have an embarrassing need to use those darn emoticons, I don't do the 'lol' or the others. Although when something is hysterically funny, and I see the comment of 'LMFAO', it does make me :D
I haven't even got enough goofy faces to watch the 6 o'clock news. Do you feel the same?
you've been practicing in front of the mirror haven't you ?
I've been there, friend? Sit down for a moment? This feeling will pass?
Thanks mate, that's another little tip for me to put in my notebook.
