How do you count?

I am not talking about 1,2,3...

Do you say:

a) One one thousand...Two one thousand...Three one thousand...
b) One thousand one...One thousand two...One thousand three...
c) One mississippi...Two mississippi...Three mississippi...
d) Or something else?

I am more interested in which is more common between a and b, but also curious as to other ways that people count off.
EDIT:I forgot to mention why I asked. I recently found that I do a and b, in the same count. Say I am counting to 5, I would say (1 one thousand) (2 one thousand 3) (one thousand 4) (one thousand 5) or something like that to where I switch my counting without thinking in the middle of it.
