Default Internet shorthand

Here's a article about the subject. I fear I'm about to be left far,far behind.

Yikes! I kind of liked WOMBAT...

Speaking of texting and such my daughter had an excessive out of network text charge of $147! Now we are pretty sure that's in error but when I called Verizon they wrote that off as a credit and said we could have unlimited texting on all 4 phones and actually the bill would be DOWN $15 a month. Fine by me.

I use texting next to never. If I had a keyboard phone it would be different.

Jeez, I didn't even know what that meant, but I can relate :

Same Shi(r)t Different Day

Hey, let's make up new meanings for the shorthand used for Lightfoot tunes, like COTS, IYCRMM, DSR, CRT, etc. We can befuddle everyone with a new "language".

DSR (Doesn't Sound Right)

I'll second that WOMBAT thing!!!
OBTW, (sorry, I couldn't resist!! ha ha) this phone I have now flips both ways... it's not too bad. A little awkward feel opening horzontally (text, Qwerty keyboard) But overall, seems to be the best of both worlds. (Samsung Alias 2)

And it accepts all my GL ringtones to boot!!!
