scary foreign films

Angry Dissenter has us watching a movie we taped off of Sundance, Audition, and he promises that it's a great Japanese horror movie. Although he's rarely led us astray, it's hard to commit to reading the movie's subtitles to know what's going on.

The Hater has settled into the couch as Zoloft acts out her favorite scenes from Crouching Tiger, Crazy Kitty. Her ears are pinned back and she's jumping or climbing on everything to dispell some of her energy. Soon she will collapse mid-leap and sleep in that spot for a couple of hours.

Meanwhile we're amused because The Hater keeps turning up the tv -- even though the movie is in a language we don't speak. When confronted about how the louder tv helps him to read the subtitles... he grins and says it's for the atmosphere.

I have such a classy husband...

Keep with it, and the subtitles will become less important. You'll never look at piano wire the same way again . . .

agreed. i was just about to halt the movie about two-thirds the way through, thinking, "nothing much going on here" and then .... something really nasty happens.
that last 20 minutes makes it all worthwhile.

Wow. Yall are both right... We totally squirmed the last twenty minutes.

And then I made The Hater promise he'd love me and only me.

Yo! Glad the movie turned out all right.

Anadin is, in fact, a pain reliever, and is a strange concoction of Aspirin and Paracetamol (which is used for EVERY sort of pain on this side of the ocean). I've found it works, though.

Why can't our FDA let us have more pain meds?? Besides that they don't want to upset the tylenols and advils of America??

Bleh.

How are herbal meds on your side of the lake?

Ummm... good question. I'm not hugely into the herbal meds, to be quite honest, so I haven't bothered asking. There are stores that sell them and the like, though, so they can't be too rare.
