Quirky Characters

Shift.
I am not referring to the elbow push to your benchmate to ask him to give you more space in class.
Infact, this shift is the key way of emoting these days. A yahoo messenger and a keyboard later, a wide toothed, donkey like grin becomes mentally mapped as :D and any sarcastic comment seems incomplete without a :P tail at the end.

But somehow, it makes long distance conversation more colourful. The way a >:D< feels like a cosy blanket and a =)) makes you crack up with laughter at something that happened thousands of miles away.

However, I take this opportunity to say that, if I have offended anybody in my lack of manners during online conversations, I am truly sorry...

No, I am truly sorry :P

=))))))) / *ROTFLMAO*

trouble is, unlike my face, these smileys don't adapt themselves to hyper-versions of the standard expressions :| wouldn't it be nice? intelligent smileys?! that understand exactly what you feel and bubble up into a suitable blob of eyes nose n teeth :D

That would be extremely funny!Even more, if the blob of eyes, nose and teeth look like the person:D

Also, if the smileys are that emotion -intelligent,'A very happy for you' text could very well be followed by a green,sad faced blob:))
