I know of a great many people who put actions inside of stars, like this: *blushes*

Usually, it's fine, I don't mind it. But when people start putting huge long phrases into it (a la "*grabs your kitty while your back is turned and runs to Mexico with it, going through the McDonalds drive-through on the way to get a hamburger for her and some chicken nuggets for your kitty because she's spoiling her now because she's such a cute kitty which is why she stole it from you in the first place*"), it starts getting a bit silly.

Today, my favorite one (though not long) is *feels dumbe*

Am I the only one who gets a kick out of these? What's your favorite?

Edit: I'm talking more about the ones that are dumb, not the ones that are actually your favorites, or ones that you like using. :)

I think once you have to refer to yourself in the third person, it's no good.

Nico never refers to himself in the third person.

I tend to like the little socially accepted asterix comments, but yes, the reeeallly lengthy ones just deserve a good slapping. Like, dude, you're living in a fantasy, snap out of it!

I prefer do it a slightly different way. I'm different, I guess. :: shrug ::

I saw that *feels dumbe* comment somewhere -- I laughed at it, too. Was it in debate? Maybe about Julie Poseur?

I'm not sure where it was. I think it was in response to a post about the julianbashir drama.
