  1. I’ve never found that compelling enough to tell the world about it, but I know exactly what you mean. It’s such a fun little combination of letters! :)

  2. Actually, I’ve been noticing the same thing over the last few weeks… back forth, back forth.. I dont know why its so amusing.

  3. My phone doesn’t use the T9-esque tech so I find I abbreviate words till they’re nearly unreadable. I.E. Mrk gng 2 mll 2 gt clths

    Mainly it involves taking out the vowels, and substituting numbers for words… pretty much “1337 5P34K” for phones heh. it’s easier and ppl seem to understand it easier as i develop a “txt msg relationship” with them.

  4. There are others like this that I always find fun to type, but I can’t think of them off the top of my head.

    Try this: type good and then scroll through the next two. “Good. Home. Gone.” So sad…

    Also there is a certain curse word that is spelled the same with T9 as “ducking”. What I can’t figure out is why the Finns hate the word so much (despite being famous for using it in person) that they put it after “ducking” AND “dublini”. Huh?

  5. ‘going’ is a fantastic word to type on a phone. Particularly as you have to go through ‘imho’ first. Gets me every time.
