Smilie Code 102

A little while back... you were all treated to a free education in Smilies in Smilie Code 101. Since we're all about edumacation around these parts, let's go ahead with the lecture, shall we?

drunk This little jewel is for those times when you've imbibed a weeeee bit o' the Irish and you're feeling pleasantly toasty. I think the little picture pretty well sums the feeling up nicely. It is represented by :drunk: .

trink Closely associated with the :drunk: is the drinking smilie. After all... one leads to the other, does it not? It is represented by the :beergood: .

coffee This one is for WOWie. I know that she's admitted to being a little bleary eyed in the misty morn, and as she's wrapped in her tattered, yet comfy, warm robe on the front porch, she sips on this elixir. It's represented by :coffee: .

snicker This next one I usually reserve for KTM or perhaps PinTA. They're forever doing things worthy of it... It's represented by :snicker: .

roflmao This too is almost solely dedicated to those who deserve it. Unlike the previous one, this is for when a comment leaves me rolling on the floor laughing my ass off. If you've never seen this one in the comment section of your blog... perhaps it's time to step up your game a bit. ;) It's represented by the :rotflmao: .

spew What happens when you're drinking something while you're reading this blog? No... it's not the "hurl" smilie, or the :g2f:... sheesh... get a clue people. It's the spew! It's represented by the :spew: .

kotc And lastly one that's dedicated to Danigirl. Ok... maybe some of the rest of you too, but it's a friendly little kiss on the cheek. It's represented by the :kotc: .

There are once again numerous others, but that's enough for now. Perhaps at the 201 level, you'll be introduced to the infamous lech, smokin, and spinning smilies. Yes... once again you'll have to wait for the lech. It's much too graphic for this class... :ewink:


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!)

But you asked me to
love you and I did.
Traded my emotions
for a contract to commit.
And when I got away,
I only got so far.
The other me is dead.
I hear his voice inside my head

Answer to last lyric: Waltzing Matilda by many, many singers. My favorite is the Irish Rovers, but alas... no such luck on the Tube. Way to go Doc! A close second was Mr. Schprock.
