Huzzah, it’s Friday! Yesterday was so crazy that I’m just ready for the weekend. Had a huge nail in one of my car’s tires and was supposed to be going to Legoland with my son for his friend’s birthday. Thankfully Hubby saved the day by using his free rental car coupon that he earned from all of his work travel so he could get to work and we could go to Legoland. Nugget had a fantastic day, but I’m beat.
This week’s theme of Funko Friday is Show and Tell. I wanted to talk about my favorite drunken Funko, Bender.
I finally found Bender in B&N for their Batman event. I’ve been looking for him a while and he was safely nestled behind Fry and Leela. Normally, Mike is less than thrilled when I get a Funko as he thinks they’re a waste of money (blasphemy!), but when he saw this one he was like, oh cool, it’s Bender. I took that as my cue to get to the checkout counter ASAP and now Bender is mine 🙂
Futurama was one of the first shows Mike and I bonded over when we first started dating. We’d hangout with our roommates and watch and laugh. How could such an amazing show not bring people together, am I right? Long after college, we still snuggle on the couch together to watch – he’s the goofy Fry to my sassy Leela.
Now, my only complaint (and Mike’s, too) about this Funko is how can Bender be Bender without his shiny metal ass? I took matters into my own hands and painted his bottom a metallic silver and now, with his booze in hand, he is complete.
Bender never fails to make me laugh and I’m glad to have him in my small, but growing collection.
Can’t wait to see everyone’s Funko this week!
