I like to say the English alphabet backwards, because the way I worked it out it is much more symmetrical than the familiar forwards pattern. (as spoken with the familiar rhythms-at least to me)

abcdefg hijklmnop qrs tuv wxyz
7 9 3 3 4

zyxwv utsrq ponmlk jihgf edcba
5 5 6 5 5

I appreciate the symmetry, and therein lies the beauty.

for me.
