GET A LOAD OF THIS EMOTION-ICON.
I got it in an email last week and I was, like, whatever, Big F Dealio, a smiley that blinks, seen that before. BUT WHAT’S THIS? Blinkey’s got a rosy secret. Blinkey’s got a blush finish. It’s a fucking White Zinfandel. Swirl it around, start talking tannins and shit. This asshole deserves a snifter. Do you drink Zinfandel out of a snifter? Does a grown woman use emoticons like this in non-ironic contexts? You tell me.
But yeah, a grown woman does use emoticons like this in non-ironic contexts. In this case in a middle of an email to me about her inability to find information on Liu Xiaobo’s Nobel Prize.
So many things I do not understand.
