The time that has been foretold has come. - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up

The time that has been foretold has come.
I've finally been dragged kicking and screaming into the Century of the Anchovy and gotten a cellphone. You may now begin placing your bets in any of the following categories:

* How long it will take me to remember I've gotten a cellphone and get around to actually setting it up.

* How long after that it will be before I remember to tell anyone what the number is.

* How often, in a given calendar year, I will forget that I have this cellphone, accidentally let the-pay-as-you-go plan expire, and have to get a new number.

* How often, in a given calendar year, I will remember having the cellphone, but not where it is.

* How long the cellphone survives before I discover which pocket I oughtn't to leave it in (bonus points for predicting whether it meets its end from being stolen, lost, sat on, or accidentally hurled into a wall when I forget why my trousers are suddenly ringing).

I give it three weeks, myself.

I felt the same way when I got my first cellphone. But in three weeks I was wondering how I'd ever lived without it, rather than forgetting I had it - and I'm not even remotely a "phone person".

Yes, but I'm nearly at the point of "...why does this note on the back of the door-to-the-outside say 'GOT TROUSERS?'" as it is, adding one more thing to the checklist is just tempting fate... :)

I predict two months until you accidentally leave it in your pants and wash it.
