    that's pretty good... it sounds a bit like the bit in Home Alone 2, where Caulkin books a hotel via a deep throated recorded messsage (perfectly anticipated). anyone remember that?

    {looks shifty} Don't remember that honestly. Didn't have one of those machines as a result honestly!

    My friend used to have "[lionelrichie] Hello? Is it me you're looking for[/lionelrichie] If so leave your name and number after the beep"
    Unfortunately she had to change it because all she would get was people laughing their head off instead of any messages.
    Mine's just "You have reached the voicemail messaging service for : {goes through my number sooooo slowly} Even more annoyingly my boyfriend's is the same and I hear that far too often
