I'd been in Japan for years before I got a cell phone, my first. Since then I've had a love-hate relationship with my keitai. They're not bad things, I suppose. They're just annoying and intrusive.
My current cell, my umpteenth (I've finally gotten into the teens) has a cameral on it, my first. I seem to wander around taking meaningless pictures of miniscule events around the neighbourhood.
Like this picture of uribo, wild boar piglets:
Or this picture of an egg vending machine:
Or even what I suspect is Doraemon mooning me.
