Emoticons

by @ 12:14 pm. Filed under Current Events

They’re called emoticons…we’ve all seem them. A smiley face made by putting a colon before right parenthesis, like this : ) and this could be changed to a sad face with a left parenthesis, like this : (
Here are some of the more common emoticons you’ll find in text messages and emails:

=D Large grin or big laugh
:(] I’m shocked or surprised
:< Frowning sad
=P I’m an idiot
:-\ I’m bored annoyed or awkward
;-) a wink
<3 I’m in love
:S I’m confused and embarrassed

These are all interesting and you’ll see them often…but, what about when you want to express an “out of the ordinary” emtion? What do you do? Well, this morning I took the time to create some emoticons that although its unlikely you’ll need to use in a text message mioght just come in handy on that rare occassion:

############ Good Fences Make Good neighbors
************ Its snowing again
<> You go your way I’ll go mine
| | | | Is that your Jeep?
Lo Anyone for soccer?
“~î~” I think I’ll shave my mustache
_///__\\\_ Take the bridge, its faster

OK, so maybe some are a little silly….but I’ll bet the time will come when you need to use one. Then you won’t think its silly. Will you?
