so...from the What are you listening to? thread earlier today...

similar here, but slightly different...the 14 year old has her heart set on getting a MacBook Air for her birthday which was last Wednesday (I think mainly because it looks "cool"). We told her we'd get her a laptop for her birthday...and of course she picks a $1000 one....I'd be willing to get it for her, but husband says no - a 14 year old doesn't need a $1000 laptop - the negotiations continue....
Proof once again that the hubbie is the SANE & RATIONALE one in that relationship. I assume he doesn't like black metal either
To your specific point - I'm sure hubbie would agree with you 1000% (as would I actually at times ) Uhhhh, and I'm not sure he even knows what "black metal" is. To illustrate where we connect on music - here's a small bit of the conversation we had in the car today on the way out to breakfast this morning with the kids (prompted by Slow Ride by Foghat coming on the radio) -
Me: As far as 10 minute jam songs go, I think Slow Ride totally beats (Lynyrd Skynyrd's) Freebird.
Him: NO WAY!
(we're only a few months apart in age, so we both grew up with this stuff - had the identical LP collections, etc.)
But I digress from the MONEY topic. Negotiations went well. No final decision, but the laptop compromise for V's birthday present is an HP around $400.
