Flash! My third Kindle 3 is here
So, my latest item from the Kindle of the week club has arrived.
I haven’t set it up yet (long day…but a good one), but I wanted to let you know Drake was here.
I guess 50 trivia points was too low, since nobody answered (here or elsewhere) why it’s named Drake. Yes, it’s more obscure than I thought.
My Kindles so far:
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)
The new one is 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).
Okay, I’ll let the forum know, then eat dinner, then set up Drake. It won’t take too long…I have the routine down, now.
