We have those smileys available -- "emoticons" to add some flavor to our posts. Does anyone have a good handle on what they mean? I understand a few of them:
[:)] Red cheeks means embarrassment.
[:D] Toothy smile means "LOL" or "laugh out loud."
[;)] Winking means "I'm kidding."
[:@] Red face means anger.
[:(] Tears means crying.
[&:] Blue face probably means "I'm sick."
[:'(] Or, maybe the green face means "I'm sick."
But I have no idea what these mean:
[8D] Do I use sunglasses when I want to be cool?
[>:] Not sure here.
[:o] Lavender face -- I'm afraid to guess.
[X(] Sorry, but this looks like a roll of toilet paper where the mouth should be. Could it be "potty mouth"?
[:-] Looks like Tweety Bird, "I taut I taw a puddy cat!"
[8|] Am I an intellectual if I use this one?
[&o] I have no idea here.
Then, under "more smileys..."
[sm=kiss.gif] I'm a little reluctant to use this one unless I know someone real well.
[sm=rolleyes.gif] Rolling eyes -- not really polite.
[sm=s14.gif] Looks to me like a repeat of the last one in the above group. Still no idea.
[sm=s201.gif] More toilet paper, but on a green face -- what's up with that?
[sm=s231.gif] Another Tweety Bird?
Obviously, they're not what I'd consider "intuitive." Who can help?
Now, has anyone else used all 19 in one post? [8|]

isn't hunting, he's thinking about hunting, talking about hunting, dreaming about hunting, writing about hunting, or wishing he were hunting.
