I Have a new Obsession

And it’s Funko. I usually just call them Pops, but I’m not entirely sure if others call them Pops or Funkos or what. But you know what I’m talking about. Those little 3 inch vinyl figures you’ve seen floating around everywhere. Well it turns out I LOVE them.

My first encounter with them was a few months back. Late last year I wandered into a Hot Topic store one day for no reason. And I was met by a wall of Pops. A literal wall of them. I was drawn to a few classic characters I’ve loved since forever, but I wasn’t ready to buy just yet. And then my brother (who I was with at the time) gave me a JJ Watt Pop! for Christmas last year. But I still wasn’t really into them, although I haven’t taken mine out of the case because that’s what people do, right?

Anyway, fast forward to last week. My store gets a few of these little guys in sometimes. But last week we got a Harry Potter and Hermione in stock. Brand new. They’re now waiting to be purchased on the 19th and 20th by me. Then I started looking online at all the different ones and THERE ARE SO MANY! But I was able to decide that I NEED the Katniss Everdeen and Jack Skellington ones. The regular Katniss and the regular Jack.

But I know I want Ron and Dumbledore and Hagrid and Dobby and Peeta and Effie and Sally and Willy Wonka and the Master and SO MANY MORE. It helps that they aren’t overly expensive and I literally don’t spend money on anything else.

Do you have any of these Funko Pops? I’m still not sure how I’m supposed to say that.

On Holiday Movies

I’m not a fan of the holiday season at all, but there are some classic holiday movies I simply love. Home Alone is probably the one everyone thinks of, and it’s high on my list, but there’s at least one movie that sits above it. Can you guess it?

No. Probably not.

The Nightmare Before Christmas.

I’m not a fan of Tim Burton, but this movie is just perfect. Better than any of his more recent work, in my opinion. There are a few other holiday movies I find enjoyable, but this one is my all-time favorite. Easily.

What’s your favorite holiday movie?

Have a nice day off work today.
