All right. I think the smileys are great, but I think we need more:

barfing smiley
light bulb smiley
sheep smiley
ew smiley
sprinter smiley
of course, a breaststroke smiley (just for Fort!)
dunce cap smiley
marmite smiley
doorman smiley (for our beloved Aaron- of course that's all he gets to wear in the penthouse!) :woot:

Please contribute. :)

Perhaps I'll even change my name: SmileyFan :)

Oh, and how could I forget:
shaved and tapered smiley

I've been asking for a wine smiley for awhile, but no one listens. We only have the beer option. Thanks for the Sprinticus smiley nomination. ;)
I really like the duncecap and barfing ideas too. Maybe we should have a smiley for each stroke, so I don't have to use the barfing smiley everytime someone uses the breaststroke smiley. I know Paul Smith would support me on this issue. Plus, he likes his wine, although he is always trying to diet. No diet smiley though!

Didn't you read my twin's insomnia thread?! No drugs! You bad boy! LOL.

My quote is from Warren Zevon. I am usually changing it to respond to Peter, but he's off being sleepy and dreamy. So it may stay Warren Zevon until he can come back and play with me and carry on our ongoing avatar/signature war. It's required that I have breaststroker for a playmate.

You used to be drumsticks following a butt but now
you're legs following a drumstick. Are there now three
drumsticks in your life? (Two that are yours and one
that you're stalking?) Confess now! Whose? (I'm sure

Yep, that Honduran heat wave (88 degrees) cooked what was left of my brain so I plead dementia for the time-being. We also need a luggage smiley for when we need to exit a thread quickly; preferably a luggage smiley with legs. Also, a fire smiley so those who are really smoking fast when they swim.

I'm sorry to hear about that one Ahmed that sounds pretty frustrating alright!....

Last night (Thu), I left a voicemail for the Sales Manager in
which I almost lost my cool (I think I caught myself just this
side of uttering illegal language!). I not only am "on call" 24/7,
but the Boss also expects me to access any and all offices
whenever needed, and if I can't, it's -of course- my fault,
not Ma Bell's or the ISP's.

What really (really) ired ("k", omitted on purpose) was that I
could be missing the USMS Forums' spirited (yes, that's the word)
exchanges this long weekend (Monday is a Stat holiday).
