Textin'

Have shamelessly pilfered the idea from this post from Stratford Girl, who I do believe was inspired by a chap by the name of Brennig. Anyway, thought I'd give it a go in a slightly modified version using received texts, because my phone is set up to only store the last 20 sent messages (has to be, otherwise the memory would explode I think!). So I fired up Nokia PC Suite and copy-pasted like a champ.

How many texts?! I only got this phone at the end of last year, and I've certainly deleted half as many again.

Text-tastic!

Now, there's an idea I'd never thought about before ... blogging one's text messages. I'm not certain I want to inflict all that bad spelling on the world, myself.

Hurray for texts. They're brilliant aren't they?
Heheh ghosty I know what you mean. There is a whole sub-language emerging just for texting. Stuffy French academics are horrified by this but as a sort of linguist I find it fascinating. But I do get a bit confused by my Dad's texts - he has invented an abbreviated texting language all of his own...!
