I pulled this from the Onion archives. I thought it was hilarious as it very well could have been about me!

He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

Me and my girlfriend has gone through a similar thing with horror films. She had not seen A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Suspiria, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Beyond, Night of the Living Dead, The Evil Dead, the list can go on and on and on, but we are working on it. We watched Suspiria Saturday night and she declared it was the scariest movie she had ever seen, and that was just because of the music.
