Smilie Code 101
First of all, the little smilie codes that I use are the ones that I first became familiar with, and well... that doesn't make them right or wrong, but just the way I learned them. For example... the easy emoticons to use are of course the wink -- ;), the tongue -- :P, and the winking tongue -- ;P. But what happens when you want to convey a different message? Well... some folks out there actually came up with little pictures and then associated certian typewritten codes to be associated with them. They're mostly popular on online bulletin boards because they're easy to use, and that's where I picked them up. So if I use some strange typings in my comments on your blogs, or in response to your comments here, now you'll know what they mean.
Now this little gem is the evil wink. The evil wink means that you are winking, but with a little bit of a devilish intent. It is represented by :ewink: .
Closely associated with the :ewink: is the evil laugh. Like the :ewink: it means that you are laughing, but with a little bit of a devilish intent. It is represented by the :elol: .
I'm not sure this one needs any explanation. I do wonder why KTM seems to direct this one at me repeatedly though... It's represented by :ppbb: .
This little gem is of course the eek. It too is pretty self explanatory. It's represented by the :eek: .
Closely associated with the eek, is another eek. On the bulletin board that I learned these from, there were several different eeks, this one happened to be eek5, so it's represented by :eek5: .
This is kind of a fun one. It's known as the groove. When you're happy and can't help groovin', this is just the smilie for you. It's represented by the :groove: .
This friendly smilie is of course the one I need to use most often. Yep... when dealing with you types, it comes in quite handy. The infamous gone too far smilie. It's represented by the :g2f: .
And lastly one that also needs no explanation. The infamous *innocent* smilie, conveying something of which you aren't quite entirely innocent of. It's represented by the :innocent: .
There are numerous others, but that's enough for now. Perhaps at the 102 level, you'll be introduced to the coffee, beergood, and spinning smilies.
Today's mystery lyric: (Remember the rules folks, no online searching of the lyrics, if you don't know it, you don't have the answer!)
Hey there you, way out there could you show me,
just a signal, or a sign?
That after all, all these years that you know me
And I'm not just, killin' time.
