Wow, Pixar Builder, that looks great! I wonder how many people saw your house flying over on its journey. That's neat, that it made it so far!

So, Death Ray, were you able to get the Ratatouille poster?

I finally got enough points for it, but ended up donating them to Toys For Tots instead. Someday...

The first time I watched Up with my whole family we were about half way through and we were all thinking the same thing.

My grandfather looked alot like Carl and he died a year ago, so we're quite calm because my dad hasn't said anything but we wonder if he's seen the resemblance, and it is rather creepy.

We get to the hero!carl moments, and my dad suddenly says. 'That's my dad.' really calmly like he was testing the theory, and we as in myself, my brother his girlfriend and my mother just look up and him and grin in response. Finally he grinned back and then repeats the sentence with even more happiness, and I don't think there was a dry eye in the room as we watched [spoiler]Carl defeat Charles Muntz[/spoiler] with my dad sitting their going. 'GO DAD GO!'

I've never been so proud of my family ever. For fathers day here in the UK, he's getting a copy in Blu Ray. It'll be his first Blu Ray disc, and I think considering how he relates to the film, it's the best present I could have given him.

And just another reason why I love this movie. <3

PS. Death Ray, you'll get it eventually I'm sure! Being generous is it's own reward ^^

I live next to a school, and I saw some kids walking home that were trying to act out Up. I didn't really understand what part they were acting out. I think they were just before the part where Dug is introduced since one of the kids was dropping a trail of rocks behind him. :)

Aw, Cirque... that's a sweet story about your Dad & Grandfather.

LOL, K9Girl, about the kids acting out Up.

Thanks to a certain group of dogs, every time my family sees a squirrel in the neighborhood...or anywhere...we shout "SQUIRRELLLL!!!"

Ok you guys won't believe this, but I'm telling the truth and nothing but the truth. :)

So about six months after we bought UP on DVD, my little sisters (then 5 and 7) decided to see if you really dig the hole before or after. They tried it right behind the house... XD

"UP" is really a special, sweet story to me....in so many different ways!

My little sister has a yellow lab, and even though I know Dug is a Golden Reteriever, her lab looks EXACTLY like Dug...and I can't help but sometimes hear Dug's voice in my head whenever that sweet dog sees a squirrel in our back yard or chases after a ball! "Yes! I do! Yes, I do! I do ever so want the ball!"

But I think the sweetest "UP" related story is how it reminds me of my sweet boyfriend... :) When he and I first met, he was very quiet and I was very talkitive and friendly....so basically, when Ellie and Carl first meet, both of us can't help but smile when we think of how much it resembles me and him.... :)

Also, he and I want to create our own "Adveture Book" together and fill it with pictures of all that we've done together so far in the first 2 years we've known each other.... :)

I think all these sweet reminders and how sweet "UP" is really in general makes me love this film VERY much! Pixar has scored again! :)

I know a cat down my road, called Toby. He's exactly like Dug!! One day, he arrived on our front door and I just said "I was hiding under your porch because I love you." :roll:

Haha, that's great! The cat that stops on my porch just sits there and does, um, cat business. Very un-Up like.

One time my sister and I were talking and I randomly said "SQUIRREL!" And we had this conversation:
Me: Squirrel!
Sister: Squirrel!
Me: Squirrel!
Sister: Squirrel!
Me: I hate squirrels!
Sister: I eat squirrels!
Me: I hate squirrels
Sister: I EAT SQUIRRELS!
Me: COOL!

I was at the Humane Society visiting the dogs, and one of the girls in my group (I was at day camp at the time) pointed to one dog and said "Poor girl! She's wearing the Cone of Shame!"
That was an awesome moment.

When we had a dog (he died about 4 years ago), shouting to him "Squirrel!" was enough to make him get ready at once and start to search furiously. So, when I saw Up, I was amused to see that the dogs act like this too. And now, my friend has a golden retriever who resembles Dug in his friendly behaviour. I sometimes say for him "I have just met you, and I love you" when he meets unknown people, because he is default friendly and good-tempered :D
"Good work, men. Two blocks down and only nineteen more to go!"

For Christmas, my mom got a really pretty yard ornament of a bird. It's body is an orb of mosaic marble, and it has a tail and cute head that bob.

It's pretty tall, and at the front of our door. When she first unwrapped it, my dad said it looked like a Snipe! So now we've named it Kevin, so when I come home I always say "Hi Kevin!"
