emoticon must be a very acceptable new word

I'm inclined to agree, Max... though I have a bit of a / relationship with emoticons myself, has to be said.

AnnaStrophic-- loved your responce to "what is a senior moment"

Hey Hey Helen - this quote is brilliant! And soooo poignant.
Any Awadees know where it originated?

this seems almost too obvious and also very close to the original "Awadee" which started this whole foobaz, but if you post here aren't you 'a waddy? [well, it *sounds different when I read it]
-ron obvious

my own overuse of "?!" punctuation reminds me of a punctuation mark introduced in 1962, which hasn't really caught on (but I remain ever hopeful)...

interrobang - a punctuation mark designed for use especially at the end of an exclamatory rhetorical question, comprising an exclamation point superimposed on a question mark. [this can only be approximated with the standard keyboard as: isn't that a great idea?!]

here's a swell graphic:
