One, Two, Three, Four...

How haven't I seen this crazy Youtube video yet? It's the wedding of Jill Peterson and Kevin Heinz, from Minnesota USA, which features the guests breaking into dance down the church aisle to the song Forever by Chris Brown. It's strangely beautiful... with a whole lot of cuckoo thrown in for good measure, too.

Naturally, as a guy, I don't think about what my wedding day will be like (nor if I'll have one - says the single guy) but I'd like to think I'd get to do something as equally banannas as this on the day!

And now in a very special episode of The Office - Jim & Pam's have just been married to this.

Television's cutest couple? I think so!

Finally saw Disney/Pixar's at times heartbreaking Up last night. Now, as anybody that knows me will confirm I'm a big fan of the films that these two studios produce - the likes of Toy Story, Monsters Inc, Wall*E, etc. - and this didn't let me down one bit. Infact there's a scene right near to the beginning where the protagonist, the elderly Carl, loses the love of his life Ellie. To say it brings a lump to the throat is an understatement if there ever was one.

How a CGI film can create such real characters and raw emotion... it's beyond me. That cartoon, it's just as wickedly beautiful as seeing the bride and groom in that Youtube video dancing along to Forever.

Maybe it says more about love and how universal its themes are. We've all loved somebody and wanted to dance with them, and grow old by their side. Of course we have. You're a liar if you say you've never felt in love, because you have - you're just too chicken to admit it, or you're still heartbroken that the love you once felt... it's now lost. Forever?

If you haven't seen Up already, go watch it asap at a cinema near you. Same goes for that Youtube clip; as soon as you can clicky clicky and watch what I'm talking about - although really, you already know, because we've all dreamed of dancing with the one we love at our own wedding... yes, even us guys.

Dad's birthday today. He's late forties. I think.

We're going out for a family meal later to celebrate, possibly to a casino afterwards - although I know how much my Dad spends in those places, which is why poor old me might not be joing him there!

Still, happy birthday, hip-hip-hooray, and all that.
