Greetings twelph,

I'll let you into a little secret...
The two smileys are clinking glasses of carrot-juice spiders!
kind regards,

Ben
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.

Buddhist-Politically correct translations of similies:

:toast: = non-alcoholic beer
:stirthepot: = vegan stew
:woohoo: = mudita, not exhuberance
:hug: = karuna
:heart: = metta
:smile: = upekkha
:computerproblem: = technical difficulties, no actual anger involved
:guns: = Olympic target shooting, not the bad guns
:zzz: = meditating during sleep (as opposed to the other way around)
:pig: = got hungry and ate dinner

Would be nice to have smilies representing 3 symbolic Buddhist offering of flower, candle, and incense.
