To Renzo & Annette's for our, now, annual stopover. Always nice to see them. On the way, I took the girls to see Pixar's latest, Monsters University. I'm a big fan of Pixar - Toy Story, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, WALL-E, Up, Brave... - all brilliant. But this was a bit disappointing, although 'respect' (if not a high five) for the conclusion: that the lead character (Mike, a small unscary green cyclops) spends his entire university career trying to prove that he's something special, only to realise at the end that he's not. How very un-Hollywood.
