Hi! My name is Krista and I'm addicted to texting. (and Farmtown but that's another day.) Ever since I was in high school, I've been a texter. I used to text answers in class. I used to text while driving. I even texted on dates.

I LOVE texting!!!

The convince of it is AWESOME!

For example, someone...let's say Amanda texts me at 8 in the morning. I don't have to rush to it, to see what she wants. I can get up at 10am and reply back. There's no guilt in taking two hours to respond.

Obviously if you are in a texting's not nice to just stop. You have to have a reason...battery died, kid bleeding, etc.

Even though I'm a 'grown up' now...I still text my heart out. The first time I had a texing convo with Amanda, I was hiking up a mountain. Seriously. (Remember Red Shirt lake?? yeah she's the reason my phone got wet and now the 7 key has attitude.)

So my relationship with texting has even GROWN...since I've gotten the iPhone. See here's the deal. When you text on an iPhone, it makes little convo bubbles so you can see what you wrote. It keeps it all on one page. None of the going back to see what I texted before.

Chris is famous for his one word replies to my texts. (He doesn't understand my love affair of texting.) I almost ALWAYS have to go to my outbox and see what I wrote. NOT ANYMORE!!!

I love that I have it all on one screen!

My friends that I text are all different types of texters but I heart you all.

Amanda is like me, in it for the long haul. We talk all stinking day long.

Taron-she's my night owl...or was until now when she is 2 hours ahead...lame!

Krystle- she's a hairdresser with a different schedule everyday so texting is really the only way we talk.

Lindsy- she has 3 kids and a hubby that is deployed. She texts me when she is lonely or stressed or I need her advice. She's a super runner too!

Nicci- she keeps me update on her single world...LOVE IT!

There are more of you but I gotta go post stuff on craigslist of the hubs.

Do you guys text?? Are you addicted like me?

I'm not a big texter. I definitely do it---but more for quick planning/figuring things out. I try not to text conversations.

And I HATE when I ask someone something and they respond "K" Ticks me off! Such a waste of my unlimited texting!

Becky said...

I have never texted. Yep, I am that lame. For some reason talking just seems easier.

I loved that text convo feature on my iPhone. my Blackberry does texts like email so you can see previous convos.
and I believe my involvement in your wet phone should be applauded cuz who's got an iPhone now? yep, you, thanks to me.
wasn't that awful when my texts wouldn't go through? SB gave me shit the whole trip cuz I was getting so pissed.

I have to say that texting for me is more of a one sided situation. People text me, but I rarely text back. I will if I have too, but I totally prefer to talk. Texting takes way too long for me. But now that we have our own phone plane, I don't have unlimited anymore. So I text even less.

I love texting; you and I could get in big trouble with that.

Oh, does it look like I fixed the reply to email thing???

I never texted up until about a year ago. And now I text all the time!

I had to have my children teach me how. Now I know what to do. But am still a little slow which has my children laughing. I have only been texting for less than a year.

Mama Nut said...

LOL, did you ever read my post "Text Retarded" ??? Because that's what I am. Except that I just signed up to do it now because my hubby can text while he is at AIT. Yay! Can't wait!

By the way, I am giving you an award tomorrow on my site, so come check it out!

I AM SUCH A TERRIBLE TEXTER. I didn't even bother adding it to our plan because I STINK. I am SOOOO slow. It's SOOOO frustrating....and I would rather just pick up the phone and call! :)

Now, an i-phone may just change that for me...someday. :)

Cherie said...

I also have an Iphone and that is when I became addicted to texting. It is easier to text on the Iphone and then to view the whole conversation is just...COOL!!
Yep I LOVE texting!!

I actually prefer to text than to talk. There I said it. When my phone rings, I groan. LOUDLY. I do not like to talk on the phone. To anyone, I don't care who it is. Text me and make me a happier person. Call me and I may just hit "ignore". That's how I roll.
