2. I usually use this one to convey
What-The-Fuckedness:

3. I think you may have done the unthinkable
Come up with a new, novel use of the f-bomb.

There is no smilie that can convey the adulation that is your due.

4. I may have indeed done just that.
It didn't really occur to me at the time, but that's a nice new word. (I'm sure someone somewhere has used that before, however)

5. I've used 'fucked-upedness'
but never "what-the-fuckedness."

This needs to go in the official DU lexicon. :thumbsup:

8. Not much!
I got an email about a job I applied for! They say they want to run a background check. :eyes:

You see the pix of bellatrix, tonks, luna, figgy, james and lily? What do you think?

What all have you been up to lately?

9. I've seen a couple pictures
Pretty happy... I'm not quite sure about Luna yet, but then, she's one of my favorite characters so I've had a strong mental image of what she looks like.

Bellatrix, though, I think they did a good job. And the picture of James that I saw, he looks like most of the jocks I knew in highschool, which might have been what they were looking for :shrug:

Have you seen Umbridge yet?

10. I have

If you haven't, mugglenet's got her.

The only picture I've seen of James was a bit small. And Luna's eyes and hair are wrong, IMHO, and since those are the only things about her that are described :shrug:

Oh, and I can't wait for the other Marauders. And Snape. :bounce:

7. I think they convey subtly different meanings
The shrug is sort of a questioning "what the fuck is up with that?"

The :wtf: is a more angry exclamation "What the fuck is wrong with you!"
