    Tough choice; let me contemplate that question.

    But getting back to something Rick said - I didn't know that redhead was a varient of blonde. I was born redhead and now am grey. In between I was brunette. How the heck did that happen?

    Cheer up, Brian. Soon you may become bald, and it won't matter any more.

    Then you will not have to tear your hair out when contemplating questions like "Would you rather hurl or have the chocolate squirts? ".

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Ok, all seriousness aside, lets get back on topic.

    I am apparently getting some kind of smelly soap, and my wife already knows most purfume makes me physically sick. So I agree that if I want something, I just buy the damn thing and be done with it. Case in point, my new contax g2.

    And that does make it hard to take it all in.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    My redhead occasionally quizzes me to make sure I still recognize jewelry that suits her taste. Once upon a time I was pretty good at it. Lately not so much. But my secret this year -- I'm consulting with her friends. I consider myself very lucky. Once she asked me "if you could have any camera in the world..."

    Well folks, I am a red head and I will admit I think I am quite easy going. Oh well, keep the myth...

    And getting back to the topic.....

    I figure if she is willing to get the 'whole thing', let her. It is easier to then expand your activity to prints later than saying no now and having to pay the price (there is always a price) for bring it up later, when you change your mind. Having it all will not prevent what you actually planned to do, so why not?

    Brianshaw - here's a suggestion to bring more peace into your home.

    I'm pretty picky about clothes and the like - not that I've got caviar tastes, more like I usually can't stand the stuff the fashion gods think I should wear. Something I started doing a few years ago was pick out a few items, put them on hold, and then send my sweetie to the store, where he'd narrow down the choices and buy one or 2 items. I get a present I actually like, without being sure which item it is, he's spared the grief of knowing he can't possibly pick the right thing. I image the same thing could be done on the internet - putting a bunch of stuff in the "shopping cart" and letting the final selection and payment be done by significant other.
