Telephone numbers

How do YOU remember telephone numbers?   I have an average memory, but using Pseudonumerology I can remember ALL the telephone numbers I care to!  First, I convert the long-digit number to a silly word phrase.  (This takes about 5-10 minutes, and is a fun word puzzle, using a reference list.)  It is easy to remember word phrases, and when I want to know the number, I spell the silly words as numbers.  I do this instantly in my head, just like you instantly spell a word like Norway: "N-O-R-W-A-Y" in your head.  YOU can easily learn to remember numbers this way too, if you don't think it sounds too crazy to try!

Here are some examples.  First, the telephone numbers of the forty students who took my geology course last fall.  I memorized their numbers to show them that it is possible to remember lots of new information (such as the new geological terms they must learn), if they are motivated and use good memory techniques.  These are not the only phrases that could be used for these numbers.  But they work fine and I happen to like them.  If YOU used the Ponderous Pseudonumer to solve these word puzzles, you would probably find solutions that you like better.

And how do I associate each silly phrase with each name?   This seems hopelessly difficult to people who haven't tried it.   But somehow it's fun and easy, like associating the phrase "The Big Apple" with New York City.   A silly phrase like that just sticks.   When I do forget a phrase after a while, it's quick to refresh it.
