Storage - memory stick
I'm considering the HD, but 32Gb of storage isn't a lot and I'm REALLY not a fan of cloud storage. I see that it has a micro USB port. So, can I use a normal memory stick with a USB to micro USB adaptor? That would seem a cheap way of boosting storage capacity to - well - whatever I needed. IF it would work.
Oh and I have done a search, but there are so many threads that I can't find one that gives this info.

The Kindle Fire doesn't support OTG in the stock software, you'd have to flash a completely different ROM to it (which isn't possible with the HD versions yet).
And while it seems like a great idea, it doesn't actually really work well because you either have to attach an additional USB power hub, or it just doesn't work very well period. 1 out of every 6 memory sticks work, and that's mainly because of the 2.0 USB standard that requires that additional power to function.
Some people here have talked about using wifi to access external drives and their computers. Maybe not the solution you're looking for, but it works very well without all the extra cords.

Like Jessica says - a Wi Drive may suit you - no physical connection but local storage.

You can purchase the KFHD7-32 with 32 Gb. That's more than enough storage. If necessary, you can even purchase the KFHD8.9-64 4G with 64 Gb of memory.
If that's not enough, use your PC and get up to 10 Tb of memory for that one.
