    OMG girl from Des Moines wins National Txting Contest

    That's text-erity: Iowa girl all thumbs, wins national title - CNN.com

    Kinda sad that txting is becoming a competition, but there were some funny parts to the article

    The fourth place finisher "Rowe failed to accurately text "Which wicked witch wished which more wicked witch in the well?" while a human emoticon talked trash about her sister." I wonder if it was jimlad?

    Also the interview at the end, while rather sad... is kinda funny (Yes, she granted an exclusive txting interview with CNN )


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    It'll probably be a new course in Phys Ed in a few years.

    They can have them run the txting obstical course

    I'd say they'd have the trash talking emoticans, but that'd be harassment and bullying

    Re: OMG girl from Des Moines wins Natoinal Txting Contest

    I caught the middle of an interview (texting the alphabet with a blindfold on) with her on the Today show (or one of the other network morning shows). Didn't realize she was from DSM.

    Like OMFG! I'm like important now! I'm like as big a celebrity as Heidi and Spencer Pratt! (yes, I DO like watching the celebs meltdown on "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here")


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Good God, I literally spent 12 hours in the car on vacation texting the entire time and could barely fire out 500. That's her normal day.

    I don't think I've ever done more than 1,000. Now that I can text Verizon for free I text more but I can't imagine firing that many texts out.

    What is so important to say that many times a day?
