U is for Up

Up in the most commonly used sense is a direction.  It's the direction I'd prefer my bank account balance to be going at all times (don't I wish).  My most memorable use of the word up is for the movie.

Up was a date night movie that I saw with the woman who would become my fiancee.  This was very soon after meeting in person, and we were just getting to know each other.  It seems fitting to me now that this movie, which has a recurring theme of forever love, was something that my fiancee and I got to experience and witness so early on.

I don't particularly want to describe the plot and information about the movie in great detail; if you would really like the details you can check it out on imdb.com.  It suffices to mention that it's one of a series of truly excellent Pixar animated films.  The story as a whole has as much substance and is as engaging as the prowess of the computer animation techniques used as its medium.  And at least for me, I'll always remember it as one of the first dates I had with the woman with whom I plan to spend the rest of my life.

That made a better U post than my initial Umbrella idea, eh?


  1. I think I've heard of this movie. It's a Pixar flick? Gonna have to check it out!

  2. Aaawww, I really love "Up." It was a great date night movie with you. Squirrel! HaHaHa

  3. My favorite quote from the movie Up was, "I slept under your porch because I love you."

    Oh, I love that.

  4. I still want to cry within the first ten minutes of watching that film.

  5. Up was the only movie to tell a whole story in the first eleven minutes of the film. Brilliant! It's one of my favourites as well. Congratulations to you and your fiancee!
