This one for some reason reminds me of a goldfish. :shock:
And this one looks like someone who is about to vomit and is trying to hold it back. :oops:

Not that anyone cares.

What th--? :evil:
I hardly EVER use these things.
There are no emoticons for my emotions:

~Coy, yet aggressive.
~Playfully stoic.
~Mildly ardent.
~Humiliating confidence.
~Bad Christian!
~I need a hug.
