My 22nd season of skimboarding began and ended in 7 days. True, I have been on my skimboard many times in 2009, but those were not skimboarding sessions. This may seem unfathomable as one of the main reasons I moved back to Florida was to once again skimboard on my beloved Sunset Beach, the place I love most in the world. This is testament to the challenges returning to the U.S. after a 9-year sojourn have inflicted upon me.

“They’ve done it again,” should be the official tagline for Pixar animation studios because with 2009’s UP, they have indeed done it again. WALL*E was a perfect masterpiece of a movie to me. I can still feel watching it. The premise for UP did not have me believing Pixar could even get close to the mastery of WALL*E and I was left wondering how UP would awe and entertain me. I was blown away after the opening scenes.
