I am so not a fan of obnoxious blinkies. Don't even get me started on animated avatars on forums.
But I love my Starbucks blinkie:
One Good Thing that happened today is that one of my favorite scrapbooking sites (Paws On Scrapbooking) put my blinkie in the forum, so I can use it like any of the other emoticons.
I know - my pathetic coffee addiction is out of hand. *grin*
