Once upon a time all we could do was this :-) We knew what it meant.
Then somebody decided hey, what we need are proper smilies like this
And smilies took over the world.
what I want to know is... what's your favourite smilie?
I like this one (I think it's me)

however, some people think this is more appropriate for me.

This is me at work when someone asks me something technical...

This is me at work ... the rest of the time
And finally ... me today, cos I've not had a cigarette for 17 hours and I'm bouncing off the walls

What will they think of next?
Some of the smiles are so hysterical that my co-workers are wondering what I'm laughing out loud about.

There is such a huge choice of smilies but the one that sums me up the best is (bottoms up!!!) and put that together with me misspelling "InteruptedException" or forgetting ; and you have - a sore head.
