It’s really been too long since I’ve posted anything. It’s not like I’ve been busy, either. I had the beginning of the week off and saw Goosebumps in theaters with the hubby (and it’s a lot of good fun, I suggest you see it at least once if not more). The rest of my week has been dedicated to working in a dead tourist town. Why I haven’t utilized the downtime to write a post is beyond me.
I’m sorry I’ve been so lazy. You deserve better.
Will a Funko Friday make up for it?
I think I’ve developed a problem. I bought my first Funko on a whim. It was a Fionna from the genderbent Adventure Time spin-off. I’m a huge Adventure Time fan and they really struck feminist gold with Fionna. She’s a strong character with a body true to women for a cartoon. Her Funko, on the other hand, was kind of disappointing.
She has the tiniest feet that, when paired with a head so big, cause her to tip at the slightest vibration. It was irritating to have to constantly be picking her up. Considering that I more often than not favor female characters I came to the conclusion that all the female Funko characters would have the same tiny feet problem and didn’t buy more of them.
I couldn’t control myself. I passed up on her once already and couldn’t do it again. I fell in love with this character and you all know how much I love her. The Agent Carter Funko was in my hands within seconds of discovering it. I was weary of the tiny feet issue, but happy to have my own little piece of Agent Carter for my own.
It wasn’t until I had gotten in the car and was playing with the box that I realized I’d bought the bobble head version. That was cool and all, but the best thing was she came with a little stand! I’m thrilled that she stands up on her own and after doing a bit of catching up on Supernatural last night I decided that I need the Charlie Bradbury Funko if I ever find it.
Not only is Charlie Bradbury a total boss, but Felicia day is THE role model for geek/nerd women everywhere. Or, at least, I think she should be after writing The Guild and building Geek and Sundry (what I called ESPN for nerds the other night).
Like I said, I might have developed a Funko problem.
