Dear Anyone Who I've Recently Talked To,

I owe you an apology.

I've got a problem. I know it. It's deep, and psychological, and twisted, and I do realize this. I'm sure you've noticed it when I talk to you - through posts, comments, replies, emails.

But I can't help it. It's just something that comes out, regardless of how many times I vow to myself that it won't. I'm sure it will still come through in my replies to comments on this post.

Of course, you all know what it is, but I'll type it out loud, just to recognize my problem:

I overuse emoticons.

Yes, I'm sure you've seen it - every sentence seems to be followed by a ':D' or ':P' or 'XD'. Sometimes the old classics '*g*' or ':)' will come into play. And I preclude most sentences with an 'LOL'.

The effects of my problem are devastating. I annoy all who I come into contact with, I stop comment threads in their tracks, I get defriended by the bushel.

So if you've rolled your eyes at one too many a 'Heh.' or 'Hee!', now is your chance.

Speak up. Let me know that it fucking pisses you off.

Maybe, one day, it will make a difference.

For now, keep me in your prayers, with the knowledge that I desperately need your help.

And thank you for managing to keep reading my entries, despite this obviously terrible problem.

Love,
Lily

Random animal stuff!

FOLLOWING LINK TRAILS IS FUN.

Cause what do you find? FUN CRAP LIKE THIS THAT'S WHAT. SO FUN IT'S MAKING ME GO ALL CAPSLOCK IN YOUR BUSINESS.

Here, I'll outline the trail: I clicked on the link in LJ spotlight to [livejournal.com profile] kawaii_not, which had a link to the Kawaii Not, which had a link at the top to Uglorable, which I click on cause it's the best word ever, I'm pretty sure.

And then what do I find in the Highest Rated sidebar? ONLY THE COOLEST SHIT EVAR.

It's an obscure animal alphabet, with all sorts of unusual and hilariously amazing looking animals.

Here is a pic of one--just kidding, I can't get the DW image insert to work )
