A picture says more than a thousand words… (Don't believe that? Try describing this picture of Katersoneseven accurately, relaying every detail).
I was recently chastised for not using any/not enough emoticons in my MSN conversations. Indeed, smileys help to relay the current mood much better than words and so I borrowed some (Pidgin's default ones aren't really pretty) from my friend and made myself use them.
Anyway, today I didn't really feel like typing and thought that I could express my opinion with only emoticons. This is what happened, I actually laughed out loud.
