The Gates of Horn and Ivory

Two Gates the silent House of Sleep adorn; Of polish'd Iv'ry this, that of transparent Horn:
True Visions thro' transparent Horn arise; Thro' polish'd Iv'ry pass deluding Lies.

    I am losing my mind.

    One of those phone robots who gets you to a person was talking to me and said, "l'll get you an agent now", and I said, "thank you".

    I need an emoticon for today. :freaky:



    Post your emote for the day....the way you REALLY FEEL about it!!!

    :guns:

    :(: is mine for the day. I skipped going to lunch because I have a really hard time getting into and out of the back of my Gramma's car, but I'm grumpy because I don't get tout go out to eat. Grumpy Jessica is grumpy.

    I suspect that you'll get along well with our new robotic overlords once Boston dynamics releases the terminators upon us sometime in the not so distant future. :baka:

    Also I find it strange that this emoticon is called baka. It says tosamusa
    What's a tosamusa?

    That was a Lunaris-ism. I have no idea.

    Well, perhaps it shall remain a mystery forever, then. My nickname is Luna and the ris part is missing so I don't understand.

    Lunaris is the one who coded this board and it might have been him, however, Chris may be the one who named the emoji's. I can't recall, been so long.

    So I have started to learn JavaScript. I am learning it on my own with a friend I can ask questions of so that is nice. I did a simple popup code today and it worked to my emoticon is:

    :jonno: Jonno. I remember Jonno, well I think I do, he lived in England and was a cool guy. :)

    Current emoticon is :puke:because I've been having tummy troubles lately. Once we move I'm going to see a stomach specialist because I think I have gastroparesis, which is paralysis of the stomach.

    Oh no...do you have a reason to have gastroparesis? That would not be too good. Please keep us posted on that! Are you going to get a study done?

    My emote today....well I do have a slight tension headache so I took tylenol, but otherwise, I am doing alright, let's see, I have so much to do though, hmmm.... :boozer:
    haha just kidding....no my real emote today is: :hungry: .........I am famished, I have not eaten lunch. and also....:shrug: just cause.

    Well I've had type 1 diabetes for... 25 years now? It's a possible complication. I do have a very mild case of retinopathy, and a mild case of glaucoma. Neither one has affected my vision yet though.

    Yeah, I know Lunaris. I talked to him a long long time ago. I heard he's nowhere to be found, though, and I just so happen to be called Luna. So a mystery it shall remain, I assume.

    It's good to see you're approaching Javascript from the right angle, though. Learning the stuff you can use to crawl under peoples skin first. Nothing more annoying than a popup.

    The phone robots cannot understand me. I like it when I can press the numbers as replies.
