crazy in love (or more on needing the eggs)

Just watched The Cranes Are Flying for the first time last night (finally). It's a brilliant film about the challenges of enduring love during the reality of war. The father of Veronica, the girl in love, says this about love to his wife when their daughter returns home in the wee hours of the morning:

MOTHER: She's crazy about him!

FATHER: And he about her.

That's what love is, my dear: A harmless mental illness.


A mental illness, perhaps, but certainly NOT harlmess, in my opinion.

Please elaborate...

then there's me who just went to see the highbrow Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Words of wisdom from Kunu (chuck in hawai'ian): 'when life gives you lemons, I just say fuck the lemons and bail'. Not so useful in war but in ill-conceived relationships? Possibly.

LT, what kind of elaboration do you need? After all, you were the one who originally said that most of your friends who are married and still together are a bit wacked!

Jenken, remember - all's fair in love and war.
