I didnt come up with it! :O

It means confusion...

Picture this:

Someone saying "I cant believe you said that" and blinking (not like a natural blink though)

or someone saying "Wha?????" and blinking

it usually helps if dialogue is the context.

I use *blink* when somebody says something shady or outlandish, so I guess disbelief is the closest answer.

Example:

GI: Man, I feel like a woman!

Tsl: *blink*

I see blink as another way to say "huh?"

GI: Man, I feel like a woman!

Tsl: Huh?

That's what that scenario would play out to...

Disbelief.

GI: Man, I feel like a woman!

Me: *blinks* = I can't believe GI actually said that.... disturbing. OR Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay....... Time to take your pills, GI.

No, Mara's right

in that context, the blink means "holy crap, I can't believe GI said that. how incredibily disturbed I am!"

If I wanted to express confusion, I'd probably reply with "wtf?"

Yup....or "What the hell?"

"*blinks*" works just as well as doing this "...".

Which in essence is like.. "Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay...."
