Bug.

I don't know why I love you so much. I hardly even know you. Seems like all we ever talk about is bugs...I guess I’d rather talk to you about bugs than talk to nobody about nothing.

Oooh! Everybody's got to rent Bug right now! The main character is a stark raving insane codependent. It's one of the most striking movies I've seen in a long time.

The freaked-out veteran is pretty cool to watch manifest all his insanity, but nothing is as good as Ashley Judd's character. Before taking on her lover, she was kind of lonely and kind of scared, but she jumps right on his crazy train.

A few folks have told me that they were reminded of me and my husband by various aspect of the characters and the setting and their relationship. The movie isn't scary, but fuck if that part of it wasn't...looking at these folks acting out their mad dance as emblematic of my own relationship.

And yeah, he probably could convince me to line the walls with tin foil.

I'm crazy. I need to rent a crazy movie. But not until I have the house to myself and can watch it alone with my crazy husband.

Funny you should say that "Line the walls with tin foil" We did that in my ultra orthodox high school in 11th grade. Left it up for a good while too. I guess that sort of explains it, doesn't it?
