We're in Chattanooga, Tennessee right now, visiting with family so we haven't had a lot of time to blog. We also haven't really been drinking (shocking, I know) except for the occasional Fat Tire in a can (awesome.) But, last week we had the extreme pleasure of taking all of the nieces and nephew to see the new Pixar film "Up." It was ofcourse, amazing. I won't say much about the storyline because I think everyone should go and see it. I will say that it was funny, entertaining and extremely moving. Extremely. I would have been inconsolable throughout the entire film but I had to remain strong for Derek's 7 year-old niece who seemed a bit concerned by her uncle's hysterical crying. It was that good. We saw it in 3D which was fantastic, having only experienced the new 3D one time before for the also amazing "Coraline." The newest triumph for Pixar leaves me with a few questions though- Why is Pixar one of the only studios that manages to come up with compelling ORIGINAL storylines time and time again? Why are they able to make computer animated cartoons into more sympathetic and fascinating characters than most of the actual human characters in other studio films? Why are they so awesome? I do not know the answers to any of these questions, and frankly I do not care. I just hope that they keep them coming.
