I use emoticons a lot, but some of the new ones, I don't think I will be using them much.
Those are really not quite adding to what I have to say, but detracting from it and, honestly some are right down ugly and puzzling.
A few no one really can tell what they mean, like this one .
That one looks like a bird that swallowed the wrong worm.
Back in the Erin as moderator days she swore we'd never get a hurling emoticon, and people complained they wanted one. Now we have one, and people find it horrifying. I'm so glad I'm not a forum moderator.
OK, I give up. I can't find the new or even the old emoticons. I printed out the oldones yrs ago and keep them on top of my monitor for easy reference. Would someone please tell me where to find the new and old ones.
Sometimes you have to burn a few bridges to keep the crazies from following you!
Maybe it's like one of those optical illusion portraits. The first time I saw it, it was giving me the benign and folksy in a 70's variety show kind of way -look. And then suddenly it switched on me and I shrieked "Exorcistcomputerhead!"
But that's in no way meant to imply that I don't appreciate the mods immensely or that I won't use this emoti. Creepy hollow eyes and all.
So my neighbor comes up to me and says," Hey HillnDale, you like horses. I'm thinking about getting one to put out back, you know, like Mr Ed, and I'm considering this inbred Gypsy Vanner. Whaddya think?!"
Those vaquero riders sure are impressive. Maybe I could have been agarrochista if things had gone a little differently.
People who rolkur their horses are total oinking 's
I really should eat more salad!!!

Reason: mistyped emoti and bizarre typo
Some are seriously not for this board, being x-rated. The Canada flag is cute, the hurling one is long overdue :barf: - and I don't understand a whole lot of them. Oh well, learn something every day, they say.
