How Do You Memorize the Carpal Bones?

A Google search for names of the carpal bones yielded this helpful mnemonic from reference.com for remembering the bones's order (the right hand, radial side to ulnar side, proximal end to distal end):

Some Lovers Try Positions That They Can't Handle

S=scaphoid
L=lunate
T=triquetrum
P=pisiform
T=trapezium
T=trapezoid
C=capitate
H=hamate

 

I REALLY like this mnemonic device! Anything to help with the memorization of this information is great to me.
