enigmatic texts

I was just deleting a bunch of text messages from my over-stuffed mobile, and I noticed how truly bizarre a lot of them were. So, what's lurking in your phone? Here are the first five that come up in my In box (some have been there for a while) - from the mundane to the, um, mad...

1. Their lashes were so long that the common girls thought they were false
2. Am in pub in Amsterdam wherein sailors used to pay for gin with monkeys.
3.We are in the Boulevard, where are you?
4. I could hear him roaring*
5. yes, phone me in work!

And a couple of them are from RL chums who are also LJ folk! So what's in your phone?

*I wanted to let the enigmatic words speak for themselves, but I feel compelled to say that the 'him' in question was none other than Jon Bon Jovi

"Does patrick still have something to do with the north pole?"

I still have the very old and tiny-memoried Nokia 3310 so I have to empty all the messages quite frequently. On the other hand I was sent these messages today and yesterday:

"I am bored and want to in home"
(Don't you love guess text? Even when someone writes completely the wrong word you still know what they're saying.)

"You are one sexy bitch can i take you home?"
(Both from my work colleague Annette.)

"Eliza dusku is at nec memorabilia! Whos goin? Bx"
(Sadly not me.)

"Hey bex, fun idea. And greetings from a soggy day in texas!"
(This follows on from the cellphone meme... and my phone has just rung again and I need to check the message...)

1. T, gr8; pl forward obs by tx asap b4 thur@5pm.VF (a very long story)
2. Hi tom hov are wherere are u? (my technophobe mum, still not sure of texting)

...and that's about it. Very boring.

I still have several messages saved from Alex, from back before they took down mtnsms.com and she could send text messages to me from America. They're not really suitable for public consumption, though. I don't really have any other interesting ones because I clean it out too regularly because it's full after 20 messages. Wah!

My outbox is much fuller because I only empty that once a month. So I've sent:

- Schmoozed john r for james dean purposes. Er - revenge or betrayal? Am not sure! But you def still = < top 50 on campus :)

And a double one, from the night after my Adventures with Alcohol:

- Do not remember last nite. One minute was pleasantly tipsy, next minute was sunday morning. Apparently am very peculiar drunk who turns every conversation into fractions or algebra. Who knew? Not remotely ill yet: suspect means am still drunk. Erm Any suggestions for best course of action?

"Do you need help with u-r taxes?"

"Is Pippin smoking crack these days?"

"Page 89"

"I think London is soggier than Texas. Good to hear from you!"

"Meet me at Borders."

Most of mine are along the lines of 'meet you [place] at [time]' (or, shamefully 'I'm here! where are you?') but aside from that - and of course the Antonia Forest one from you! - I have:

"Zone three sweedie. ;-) x"
"2 minor faults! A legendary drive."
"Islu went ok, pocu 2 moz! Hope u r gd. Not much news x"
"Mate we're in mac donalds on the motor way. pudding fucking city!"
"Kissed someone and didn't cry!"

(I have to ask - is the first one of yours a quote from some school story or other?)

(I have to ask - is the first one of yours a quote from some school story or other?)

Hee, it's a reference to one! The text is from barsine, in response to me texting her about the freakishness of the twins in The Highland Twins at the Chalet School, who turned up at the school "in full highland dress", complete with sporrans! So she texted me back with a reminder of their unearthly charms...

I don't have texting on my phone! How much do you guys generally pay for it?
Apr. 6th, 2004 04:19 pm (UTC)
You - don't have texting? Wow. I don't think you can even get mobiles without texting any more over here!

My plan costs £15 a month - free off peak minutes - and I pay £2.99 a month for 50 free text messages. I have to keep careful track or I use way over that, and then they cost 12p each. Virgin Mobile keeps advertising text messages for 3p though, which would be coooooool.

I second Mary's amazement! I actually didn't think it was possible to get a phone without texting. I get a bunch of free texts and calls a month with my general Vodafone costs, but I know I send way more texts than are covered in that. Now I come to think of it, I probably use my phone for texting more than calling - and so would a lot of my friends.

I only have a few to choose from, as most of my inbox consists of variations on "Yay!" or "Boo!" - replies from people who are much busier than me to my long and over-excited texts...

1. You would be surprised at the number of bibles I have to move
2. We are at the zoo and there are monkeys! [from my father, bizzarely]
3. I see them building a carnival outside your building
4. I hope she does not fall through like the socks
5. Amanda is on Pat! [Today with Pat Kenny, not some random bloke called Pat]

Am in pub in Amsterdam wherein sailors used to pay for gin with monkeys.

I was, too!

Edited highlights from my current inbox:

1. At least you are not wearing what appears to be a surgical gown.

2. I was just talking to the Wicked Witch of the East there a minute ago and her flying-house-o-phobia is off the scale.

3. At David Lee Roth. Holy Mother Of God.

4. ..The sign .. that said .. detour ... I know you're hurting, but I can't be there for you ...

5. hapy nu yr *hic*

6. Watching Return Of The Jedi under a Return Of The Jedi quilt. Sorted.


And from my outbox (frequent source of "What did I mean and why did I send that?" moments)...

1. I have just seen enough people bowing things that were never meant to be bowed to last me a lifetime.

2. The Danube is brown! I've been lied to!

3. Holy God. They are feeding us absinthe.

4. Your trousers that were too big for you are now too big for me.
