Now now, how can you possibly hate emotes? ^^
They are just so joyful and nice. :p
And you can never have enough smilies. :)
Personally I find the use of them quite liberating. ^_^
I never feel quite alone as long as I have my smilie friends to back me up out of a tight spot. ;)
Know what I'm saying? ~_^
Anywhoo, I found this thread to be quite enjoyable. :D
And I also like your avatar, very stylish.
Toodles for now!
I'm off to play with my kittens. :3
