I'm sorry about that. But I'm sure you're sick of titles like "Designs - Shall We Dance" which should you desire could be the title of this current post. But for the sake of common decency I shall present you with a more acceptable, completely unrelated title. Because I want to :P
Today's topic is Emoticons.
They are strange things. They are, in our mind, faces. But in the mind of people who are completely unable to see pictures in clouds and such, what are they? Simply lines and dots, letters and punctuation. Why do we use them? There was once a time when one could articulate what they meant quite plainly, without the need for a :'( to show sadness, a ;P for a flirt.
But past the facade (without an accent, sorry), are they really a falsity, reaffirming to people "yes i'm happy see :D" when outside of our internet world, we are incapable of hiding behind screen and text.
I'm happy to hear views, but you all know that my true aim is for you to all tell me your favourite smileys, so that I can steal them and use them for my own.
