Don't forget to buy your Kindle a Christmas or Hanukkah present. Remember they are members of the family too.

    At first Ford had formed a theory to account for this strange behavior. If human beings don't keep exercising their lips, he thought, their mouths probably seize up.
    After a few months' consideration and observation he abandoned this theory in favor of a new one. If they don't keep on exercising their lips, he thought, their brains start working.

    LMAO!  You don't buy one for your car?  Most guys I know always seem to buy something for their car around Christmas, the rest buy something for their computer. ;D

    When I got my Kindle I never knew it would be this expensive.  If it ever develops a taste for liquor I'll go bankrupt.

    1) You gotta start hanging out with a better class of guys.

    2) Pouring liquid (and especially alcohol) into a Kindle is a bad idea.  And your Kindle will never ask for any.

    LOL I know I do.  But in my job they are either computer geeks or the car lovers.

    I don't pour it anything, it just seems to suck up all my available cash.

    My toaster wants a dress.  He's a male toaster but he's genderconfused and likes to dress up like a girl on the week ends.  He is always making the radio play Lola.

    My van has a name (BRATBUS) and so does my husband's car. My Kindle (Edgar) and ipod (Mavis) do, but not any other electronice or household appliances.

    My grandmother named her dishwasher (Isabelle), stove, oven, ice machine (that was Matilda), and fridge.  Growing up, I thought it was perfectly normal.

    Edgar is getting an Oberon for Christmas.

    That's okay.  I'd probably forget it as soon as I read it.  What's your name again?

    My grandmother used to call me the names of all her DiL's before she remembered my name.  If she named her appliances, too, I'd be in real trouble.

    I only buy Christmas presents for those dear to my heart.  That means, that while I truly appreciate and enjoy them....  my appliances get no gifts.  MaKK, on the other hand, is TOTALLY dear to my heart - can't imagine life without him!!  So.... new Oberon cover it is.  I don't use the Oberon Kindle covers because I fell in love with two designs that aren't available for a Kindle.... so I buy the large classic journal cover and use it for MaKK.  Right now he is in Mountain Pine and I'm going to order the Daffodil cover for spring/summer.  LOVE those Oberon covers and how they protect MaKK as I take him everywhere with me.

    Gifts for my Kindle are gifts that keep on giving, do gift certificates from Amazon count?  If they do, he gets one every two weeks. :)
