Brian-with-coffee-and-newspaperYesterday’s post spawned some interesting comments and observations . . . and also a bit of curiosity.

The most asked question . . .

How to create :mrgreen: ?

It’s easy.  Just type : mrgreen : without the spaces.     :mrgreen:

What if you want to roll your eyes in cyberspace?  🙄
Type : roll : without the spaces.       :roll:

I know what you’re thinking.  That’s cool!  😎
It is : cool :      :cool:

But remember to leave out the spaces or your face will be red. : oops :    :oops:

And, if you’re already having a tough day, that might make you : cry :    :cry:

❓  If something makes no sense . . .  : ? :     :?:

Want to : razz : someone?    : razz : away!  😛
Just remember it’s not nice to : razz :  Mother Nature!    :razz:

Hey!  That’s a brilliant : idea : !   :idea:

Safety Tip:  When working with sockets, try not to : shock : yourself!     :shock:

No rules.  Just write!

What about you?  How do you Show Some Emotion in cyberspace?

I tried to do :mrgreen: today in several locations and utterly failed. I am such a loser 🙄 and also so embarrassed :oops:. Tee hee hee.

Fun ideas. Where do you find all these great happy faces?

nrhatch - June 29, 2011

Someone shared them with me a while back . . .

Since several people seemed intrigued by :mrgreen: yesterday, I thought I should share them all.

7. Christine Grote - June 29, 2011

How do you know all this stuff? I’m going to have to bookmark this page.

nrhatch - June 29, 2011

My mind is filled with all manner of useful (and useless) trivia. I wonder if Emoticons will ever be a category on Jeopardy? :mrgreen:

8. Maggie - June 29, 2011

I like this one: 💡

9. adeeyoyo - June 29, 2011

I love them, Nancy. Don’t know why WP makes the list so difficult to find…!

10. Linda - June 29, 2011

It only works in wordpress? Not in email?

nrhatch - June 30, 2011

You may be able to use them in e-mails, but they don’t work in Facebook. 😦

11. Cindy - June 30, 2011

You are so 😎 to share these 🙂

Wooohoooo! What a hoot! I’m saving this page. Not sure I’ll ever use these ❓ but they are soooooo 😎 that it will be fun trying! My friends will be :mrGreen: with envy. With these emoticons one can express 🙂 or 🙄 or 😳 I will try not to 😛 anyone, but I may not be able to help myself. But, to do so might be a 😯 to those who know me well. The use of emoticons is a brilliant 💡 Without further adieu, I have to run 😥 Until later, 🙂

15. ceceliafutch - June 30, 2011

😳 — should be :mrgreen: Oh well, I tried 🙄
