Qual o nome do seu "filho"?

Aumentar Letra Diminuir Letra

Estava aqui de bobeira pensando num nome pro meu Kindle. Tinha pensado em vários (como Moleskindle, porque adoro os cadernos Moleskine, ou Qunídou, ou Kinder (ovo :-), mas nenhum realmente me dizia algo... enquanto isso, tava lá no meu Kindle o nome "Andre´s Kindle"... sem graça pra cacete.

Daí me veio a idéia de dar um nome que representasse ele, em sua forma, seu significado, seu potencial. O que veio foi Tabula Rasa! Gostei, adotei.

Daí resolvi fazer um post com alguns comentários sobre nomes de Kindles que tenho encontrado por aí, e mostram o carinho que os donos têm por suas "tabuinhas preciosas" Segue o que encontrei, pra diversão de todos :-)

[Esse cara está no seu sexto, SEXTO kindle... ele deu azar, e as duas primeiras "cópias" do seu K3 deram defeito...]

Kindle 1: K-1 (still going strong)
Kindle 2: Tom (lost or stolen)
Kindle 2 international: Durgo (named after Triplicate Girl, later known as Duo Damsel…because my Kindles would have been three and became two through an unfortunate incident) (still going strong, now used by my Significant Other)
Kindle 3 #1 (D’Artagnan…the new, young, fourth…like the character in the Three Musketeers) (screen failed)
Kindle 3 #2 (Pete…named after Pete Best, who some consider the 5th Beatle…screen failed within a week)
Kindle 3 #3 (Drake…this is Kindle #6 for me, and Number 6 on The Prisoner is widely believed, with some evidence to support it, to be John Drake, Patrick McGoohan’s spy character in a previous series).

Um comentário:

  1. Eu ri muito desses nomes. Gostei da ideia de colocar o nome seguido do telefone. Talvez se o carinha com 6 Kindles tivesse feito isso ainda teria o primeiro K2.:D
