I didn’t care for the old forum’s animated LOL. Twitchy and flashy stuff makes me feel like I’m going to have a seizure. Seriously. I don’t have them, but it’s unpleasant, and it feels like I’m vulnerable to it.
Vampire was obvious, but I don’t know when I’d have a use for it.
This thing—-> <——should be a LOL, but it’s just creepy. Is that, like, a vampire with it’s top fangs removed, or wtf?
Oh, it says “snake”... I guess without it’s top fangs deployed? Yeesh.

The selection of smileys is pretty bizarre.
(Why do we need a vampire and a snake?)
Well, with the unfortunate popularity of True Blood and other teen-type vampire stories (all of which are ridiculous, vampires are not supposed to be romantic, pretty beings…they’re undead for crying out loud!), vampire smileys are inevitable. Except for the snake and vampire ones, I kind of like the new smileys! I hope they don’t get rid of them, just add some others so there is more choice.
I prefer vampires who are something other than filled with teen angst and immeasurable power. I mean, to go back to the classics, Dracula was a classy gent. Who was, admittedly, filled with immeasurable power, but it was exerted very intentionally and in the pursuit of long-term desires, not just food and trashy smut scenes.
I like the Morganville vampire series. Here is my copy of the latest book of that series. (I know of one more that has yet to be released) the other book is Golden Lily which is part of the bloodlines series. I liked the first book so hopefully I will like the second book.
Also in the picture is Micah who was upset that I dared put books on his napping chair. That was his place to take naps, not a book shelf.
i need a book shelf.
