Yesterday, while hiking with The Blonde, I lost my cell phone. I think it's somewhere at the bottom of Bronson Canyon, but who knows.
I decided that my chances of getting it back were slim to none, so I went and got a new phone. Verizon lets me upgrade once every two years, and since I never liked the last phone, I'm not all that broken up about the loss. I had an old phone that had 90 percent of my phonebook loaded in it, and the other 10 percent I can get off of my old crew lists.
I got an LG VX6100, which is the first camera phone I've ever had - I've always tried to avoid phones with cameras, as some shoots confiscate them (as does the green room at Jimmy Kimmel Live), but Verizon's not carrying any decent phones that don't have a camera.
Although scaring the cat with the flash is fun, I can't see that I'll be using the camera feature all that often - my digital camera's much better, and I almost always have that with me.
