Need help with inscription for iPad mini

I have a lady friend who recently joined the army, and I am getting her an iPad mini.

It happens her name is Andromeda, yeah, like the galaxy, so what thinking of something cute to put on the inscription.

I guess I am pretty name, cant think of anything witty, charming, or supporting on it.

So, I ask, nay, PLEAD for the wise (I hope) MR community to plant some ideas and hope to bare Fruit (Apple).

Make sure you get her one of the tough cases for it. As for an inscription al I can suggest is comparing her to a galaxy of stars in some way. Possibly what you see in her eyes.

For sure a durable case.
I was thinking of comparing her with the stars, but was looking for other suggestions.

"My Galaxy's too good for Samsung's"
(Samsung's "Galaxy" line of phones/tablets is one of Apple's biggest competitors)

In all seriousness though, if you do the stars thing don't make it too cheesy.

So does that mean when she annoys you it's called The Andromeda Strain?

How bout "You're My Celestial Body." Mentioning the galaxy might be misinterpreted as saying she's as big as a galaxy.

Fortunatly she is not as big as a galaxy, but she can be a strain.

"Andromeda is full of wondrous things

I think this is about what I want to have.
Yes, she is a little careless about her stuff. :/

How about something like, "Whenever you decide to sell this you'll get about $20 less b/c of this inscription"

Haha yeah, I wouldn't ever do the inscription because it kills resale value. Amazon won't even let you turn in products with inscriptions.

However...........if you want to get something inscribed go with this

"Kelly Clarkson & Adele walk into a bar, not at the same time of course, theres fire codes & laws of physics"

Does she like people playing with her name like that? I'd get annoyed by it.

Just saying. If not, I like likening it to Samsung's Galaxy, if she's nerdy like that.

Oh come on, don't weigh your decision to purchase something (especially electronics) on its possible resale value.
