Friday 25 April 2008


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.

Woo Hoo! I'm in there!

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...!
