Do you use Emoticons in your SMS? What are the first words in the SMS you receive?

We are curious in current practice in SMS use - and I hope for a good reason. Together with Jonna Hakkila and her group at Nokia Research we have discussed ideas how to make SMS a bit more emotional. Hopefully we have soon a public beta of a small program out. 
Till then it would be helpful to understand better how people use SMS and how the encode emotion in a very rudimentary way by :-) and :-( and alike. If you are curious, too and if you have 10 minutes it would be great to complete our survey:

Emotions in SMS and mobile communication has been a topic many people have been looking in, one of the early paper (in fact a design sketch not really a paper) was by Fagerberg et al.  [1] in our 2004 special issue on tangible UIs - an extended and more conceptual discussion of their work can be found in [2]; for more on their project see:
