    Okay, kids. Let's see how dependent we are on these little faces we use everywhere.

    Today, I challenge everyone not to use smilies in their posts.

    Ready...set...go!

    It's like any other addiction, Kas. You have to face it before you can overcome it. Cold turkey, baby.

    How can you make me do this? I just want to put a big surprised smiley at the end of this post! Gah!

    Sad face.

    I love the smiilies!

    But I already used the love smiley in a post earlier this morning (before Kate made the thread about NO SMILIES!). So am I ok?

    Nobody's stopping you from editing that post, if at all possible.

    Well, I'm going to go one better. I challenge everybody not to have any vowels in their posts!

    Kate! that's too much. I'm resisting the urge to use a shocked face smiley now. and a face cry. and face laugh at Steve!

    I don't think I can do it. I feel so emotionless without the smileys!

    Gosh! James and John, you're no good at challenges, are you?

    I'm with Jason and Alison on this one. I'm going through some major smiley withdrawl here! I don't know if I can get through the whole day without them.

    Steve...your task is just impossible! Or should I make that "mpssbl"?

    yeah, you're right Kasey!!! no vowels = impossible!

    I'm wondering, though... what about the smilies in people's sigs, eh? do they get to stay?

    here's one: no saying "lol"!!
    ha. [insert smiley here]

    I try not to use "lol" or internet shorthand if I can help it, so no big deal there.

    Yeah, I was wondering about signature smilies earlier. I forgot to ask Kate before she left. I think they should stay!

    Oh no, I havae to use Lol, or something close. I can't help it.

    John, are you including the letter Y in your vowels?

    John, are you including the letter Y in your vowels?

    Sometimes. Why? It's not a full time vowel. In the above post, I counted it as a vowel.

    I don't know why Y was ever considered a vowel anyway.

    Y's a vowel?

    Wow. I forgot that.
