Mr. RK and I have a completely different take on electronics. I hate spending money on them, and I could care less how many RAM/GIG/etc. the computer has, how many megapixels a camera has, etc.
(I mean, when we met, I was using dial-up internet, and this was 2004.)
Granted, I'm a bit enamored of the convenience of the newest, highest speed internet he insisted on getting, as well as the smart phone.
However, suddenly I am sitting in front of a new computer monitor so huge I am tempted to ask if Mr. RK is feeling insecure, and a new computer that I can't tell is any different than the last one.
My idea: Use a computer - or other electronic appliance - until it breaks, then see if we can fix it. Only buy a new (cheap) one if we absolutely fucking have to.
Mr. RK: "The new computer monitor has much better color saturation!"
I think I would feel better if I came home and found him installing a home movie theater, because the monitor is freaking big enough for that. I guess size matters.
On the other hand, I have no qualms about plunking down money for books (although I usually buy them at our local used bookstore), mochas (yum), or running shoes (this is going to affect how my legs look, after all.)
What do you hate spending money on? What do you not think twice about?
