Being emoticons…

As always I was day-dreaming about something when suddenly this thought occurred to me. How life would be if we all acted out the emoticons which we liberally used online. With the Internet out there to stay, it's no big wonder that everyday newer chat portals are launched everyday, successful or not. And in the course of chatting, many people like me resort to one or many emoticons provided by these portals to express ourselves succinctly. But just imagine... if each of us out there were to act out each of these expressions whilst trying to express something. For example (yes, I agree I am utterly jobless) -

I was too lazy to mimic the other emoticons. But wouldn't that be totally scary? Someone baring their teeth everytime they wanted to express extreme joy... or bursting into tears to express extreme unhappiness or protruding their tongues to tease? You get the point. Which is why it's good to have our feet planted in this real, less-animated, saner world.

The pictures are hysterical. I just pictured you break into an emoticon each time and it was an LOL Moment. The pictures caught my eye first and my digression was totally worth it. LOL!

jobless...totally :-P hehehe, but I admire you for going all the way with the pics and editing them n all. But don't you think chatting would be boring & robotic without these faces adding color to the conversations ? I miss them in Gtalk :(

You are shikari shambuish in those pics. Actually, I know someone who sticks her tongue out to tease. That's when my heart thumps out visibly and my cheeks turn red.

Seshadri said...

and I say, have you lost weight?

Jaya said...

Krish -> Thank you :D

Gandalf -> Stop picturing it!! But thanks :)

Priya _> Already accepted that I was jobless... Besides.. I did acknowledge to using them boundlessly during my own chats as you must've noticed. This is just a stupid wayward thought of an animated life :D

Sesh-> Shikari Shambu is the perfect comparison.. I lack a moustache that's all :P. BTW, you got all that weight-lodd from my chin?

Seshadri said...

yeah... one of them is missing. :)

but, I can see it from your Kazhuthu too. Or is a picture deceptive?

Jaya said...

Sesh -> Jackass... Never had a double chin! x(. No no... as regards to weight loss, I accept all forms of noticing unquestioningly. So, thank you. And once again, I NEVER had a double chin.. EVER. Maybe you did x(

Why the eye-less photo? To make it less personal?

Jaya said...

Anon -> Kinda... If you've noticed, I usually don't put up personal photos on the blog.

Jaya said...

Anon -> Thanks for commenting and keep visiting!

Sandy said...

You look cute...as always. BTW was that the free sweatshirt? How come noone sends me any of these things :S. Grrrr

Jaya said...

Sandy -> Thanks dee... No no, this one I bought in Rome... You'll probably see pics of me wearing the other one sooner than later. :D
