My Google Voice Invite

I got my Google Voice invite about 2 weeks ago. Every night, I search, and hope that an area code that I want is now available (In order, 212 (New York City); 907 (Alaska, preferably Wasilla); and 867 (Yukon Territory)). So far, I've had no luck in getting a number in any of those three fine locations.

But, last night I had an idea for how to pick a new area code. Texts From Last Night provides the answer. Simply scrape all of the area codes from the texts, and find out which one is most common. And I have my new area code.

Somehow, I think I have to refine my curl and regex skills so that I can do this drunk and stoned to make it "proper."
