Dingbat conversation

Tomorrow's therithere comic has just inspired me to try a little experiment, if any of y'all want to cooperate. It'll require the standard Windows dingbat fonts- Wingdings, Wingdings 2, Wingdings 3, and Webdings. All Windows users should have them, and Linux users I think can get them.

Just how much of a conversation is it possible to hold using only the symbols in those four fonts? No fair using them to encrypt plaintext- use the dingbats themselves. <font face="Wingdings">, for example, will shift you into the Wingdings font until the next </font> tag. I'd suggest picking from the Character Map here!

Anybody want to try?
