Always Be Thankful #3

More thankful times to be had! :) Lately I have felt particularly thankful for a lot of things in my life, to the point where I'd be ever so thankful if I could share my experiences with all of you!
#1: My Adventures in Toronto! Lately I've been lucky enough to get to check out some areas of Toronto where I haven't previously explored, and it's been quite the fun experience. Not only that, but recently I had the opportunity to travel to Toronto to attend a meet and greet for fellow booksellers, and I was able to make it to my destination without anybody else's help - there was nobody meeting me at the bus terminal to show me how to get where I needed to go, and I felt rather proud of myself :) After the meet and greet I did meet up with a friend that took me to the Art Gallery of Ontario, and afterwards we went to the Ripley's Aquarium, both of which were really fun. Soon I'll be an official Toronto resident, even if it's only a guaranteed thing for about four months, and even if I never get to leave me dorm room because I'll be surrounded by a constant flow of homework assignments I'll be proud to be a Torontonian for a little while. In the meantime, I hope I get to explore the city more and more; every minute spent in my future city is an adventure :)
#2: My Aunt Kathy & Uncle Mike & Their Hospitality! I can't remember exactly how many years it's been since I started going to Wasaga Beach to visit my aunt and uncle for a few days up to a week, during my winter Reading Week as well as during a random week in the summer. Both my aunt and my uncle are a riot to sit with and watch films and BBC specials with, which might not sound like a lot but it's such a great way to both enjoy some downtime and to catch up and enjoy my family's company. Over the years I haven't managed to get to know my family members on my dad's side very well. I have trouble remembering all of their names half the time, and I regret that. In my defense, there is a lot of us; my grandmother had 11 children, and all of those children got married and had kids, and many of those kids had kids, so there really are a lot. But I hope in the future that I can get to know other members of my family better, like how I've been lucky enough to spend so much one-on-one time with Mike and Kathy.
#3: My Valentine's Day Watch-Along with Shelby & Toni! On V-Day, for lack of a date, I decided to dress up for no apparent reason, eat some chocolate that I'd been saving for a special occasion (just since Christmas, not for years - that'd be a bit knarley) and watch one of my favorite films with two of my favorite people in Michigan. To be fair. Shelby and Toni are the only iggles, the only people, I know in Michigan, but it's still relevant! We watched and quoted and tweeted the entire time and had a blast. The two of them kept me laughing almost as much as the film did. I really like this movie because I loved the book when I was in 7th grade and I literally jumped up and down when I found out there'd be a film adaptation XD Anyway, I wish I could've been there to see Toni's reaction in person to the ending, because she hadn't seen the film before, but the whole evening was still priceless, and I really enjoyed my good time with my fellow iggles :)

Ramona Flowers and Her 7 {Evil?} Exes

For the longest time now, I've joked with my friends that I am a lot like Ramona Flowers because of my dating history. Including the boys I dated in high school, I currently have a total of 7 ex-boyfriends. If all 7 of them were what I would consider "evil" as opposed to just 3 of them (and if 1 of them was a woman), then I'd basically be a living and breathing Ramona Flowers.

Since today is Valentine's Day, I thought I'd write a little bit about that always constant idea of love. Ahh, love . . . Roses are red, violets are blue, a rose by any other name, etc. For the record, aren't there over a dozen different breeds of roses out there in the world with a bunch of different names? A botanist Bill Shakespeare was not.

One thing I have learned from my romantic history, from short term and long term and even long distance relationships, from being in love, from dealing with many different types of fallout that comes with breaking up, is that not only can you learn something from every type of relationship, but you can also find something good to reflect on with nearly every relationship. Even with the worst break-ups, and even if it is a very difficult struggle to try and come up with something, there's that one memory or that one thing a significant other has said to you that holds the slightest bit of positivity.

And today I'm going to share a few of these positive memories with all of you today! No negative man-bashing, all positivity! To not get too personal with you guys to the point of discomfort and to protect the privacy of these boys, instead of names I'll be using numbers - and they'll be assigned chronologically, not by some sort of odd best-worst ranking system XDD
Ex-Boyfriend #1: The very first one. This was actually an online-only relationship that went from when I was in 8th grade until January of 11th grade, so definitely my longest relationship hands-down. We were even engaged for a time - it was rather nice. Maybe it wasn't a relationship that was fated to go anywhere, but he was there for me during a time in my life where I would've otherwise felt completely alone. He also sent me my very first pair of earrings, which I'll always remember.
Ex-Boyfriend #2: This guy provided me with my most romantic Valentine's day to date. We got dressed up and ate dinner in his room. We had garlic bread from Pizza Hut, which doesn't sound overly romantic, but it was one of my favorite foods of all time back then. He gave me a rose and some cute Valentine's plushies, and we watched Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and Blind Date. Maybe it doesn't sound super romantic by today's standards, but for a high school girl's first real Valentine's day, it made for a memorable day.

Ex-Boyfriend #3: My fellow geeks will appreciate the fact that this guy was the one to introduce me to the virtues of J.R.R.Tolkien. With him I watched the Lord of the Rings movies for the first time, including the original animated version of The Hobbit where they would depict violence by the screen blurring and swirling around, which was pretty funny. Thanks for improving my nerd cred, bud.
Ex-Boyfriend #4: My relationship with ex #4 originated from a mutual friend of ours setting us up as a joke, which was rather interesting XD Not only was this boy from 4 months of my senior year very sweet, but he was my first semi-formal date. We attended the semi-formal dance at both his high school as well as my own, and both nights were a lot of fun.
Ex-Boyfriend #5: If I give my longest relationship to date credit for anything, aside from teaching me a lot of do's and don't's about being in a relationship, it's for ex #5 introducing me to a lot of my current favorite fandoms, like Game of Thrones and Community. Early in our relationship (possibly as a Valentine's gift, I can't remember if it was for an occasion or "just because"), he made these dozen duct tape roses for me, which I still have displayed in my room. He also gave me a plush giraffe that still sits on my bed, whom I named Benji.
Ex-Boyfriend #6: Ex #6 was a nice guy that played the Scott Pilgrim video game with me even though I sucked, who provided one of the best memories of Anime North that I've experienced so far, and the guy that gave me my first Funko Pop figurine :)

Ex-Boyfriend #7: For introducing me to shows like Black Books, Sherlock and The Newsroom, for doing selfless and really sweet things like cleaning my complete pigsty of a bedroom while I was at work, and for just generally being one of those guys willing to do nearly anything I might need, I owe ex #7 for really setting the bar for future boyfriends, and for just generally being a nice and respectable gent.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post :) To ask you all a question, what are some of the most memorable gifts have you received/moments you have shared from/with a significant other, whether it's from a current or previous relationship, a friend, a parent, etc.? Post in the comments to let me know :)

5 Favorite Fictional Couples I Ship

Happy Friday, folks! Also, happy Friday the 13th, which falls right before Valentine's Day! Isn't that something? I feel like that should be some sort of dark premonition leading up to a day that's supposed to represent love and romance . . . Hmm . . . Well, too late to worry about that now! Time to talk about fictional couples that have captured my heart and who have brought out the ultimate response in me: "I ship it!" XD
#1: America Singer & Maxon Schreave from The Selection Series by Kiera Cass! My favorite fictional couple from my favorite YA book series. For the record, anybody that enjoys YA books and hasn't picked up The Selection yet, what are you doing with your life? Seriously? I'm not much of a re-reader, but I have read the first book in this series 5 times. I've only read The Elite 2 or 3 because it's not my favorite in the series, and I've read The One twice now, but I expect these numbers to rise before the 4th book comes out in May. These two are such an adorable couple!! *insert fangirl squeal here*
#2: Cath & Levi from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell! Apparently it's YA couples that provide the most feels XD Coming from somebody who also faces issues with anxiety and social awkwardness, I related quite a bit with Cath from Fangirl. Replace her writing fanfiction with my online roleplaying and we can relate even further XD Levi is a sweet guy that accepts her for her social inadequacies, plus they're generally just so cute together. If Fangirl ever gets optioned to be a film, I'll be the first in line.
#3: InuYasha & Kagome from InuYasha! With all that these two go through (and for a number of seasons and films), I know in my heart that these two just HAVE to end up together! I haven't seen all of InuYasha yet - many of the episodes, all the films, and I own the first 3 seasons, but I haven't watched the Final Act yet. I'm hoping that everything gets resolved, and that there will be some semblance of Happily Ever After for these two. And, more than anything, I hope that bitch Kikyo finally dies! XDD
#4: Lizzie & Darcy from The Lizzie Bennet Diaries! No matter how many years it's been since the series ended, these two will always have a special place in my heart :) As cute as Emma and Alex are, especially since the lead actors from Emma Approved are a couple in real life, before Emma won my heart there was Lizzie with her costume theater and her amazing friends and family and I was there on D-Day to see Darcy's face for the first time, and these two will always be a part of me now <3 p="">
#5: Anastasia & Dimitri from Anastasia! For the longest time, Anastasia was my favorite Disney movie . . . until I figured out that it wasn't actually a Disney movie but was made by 20th Century Fox XD It's really fun how these two start off by antagonizing each other but then end up eventually falling in love, and it's adorable and the movie's filled with sweet and catchy songs XD These two will always be a favorite of mine, even if Anastasia isn't a Disney princess :P

Wednesday Wish Lists #15: V-Day Edition

Happy Wednesday everybody! We're swiftly approaching Valentine's Day, and while it's definitely not everybody's favorite day, and I totally get that, you have to admit that stores stock a lot of cute items around this time of year, from clothes to cute stickers to adorable and useless little knick knacks that you know that you haven't any use for and yet you want them anyway! XD This Wednesday I've decided to gush about as many V-Day themed things as I possible can. And because this is a special occasion, I've found not 5 but 8 items to gush about :) So enjoy!
#1: "I Tolerate You" T-Shirt from Hot Topic! This shirt seems to reflect my typical attitude towards boys, so why not add this to my collection? XD I'm also curious what a guy's reaction would be if I wore this on a date, especially if it was a Valentine's Day date :P
#2: More Episodes in The Misselthwaite Archives! Ever since I saw the first trailer for this series, I've been eagerly awaiting for this adaptation to launch, and now that it has it has absolutely exceeded my expectations! I love the original story of The Secret Garden, which I've read and I've seen the film as well, and this adaptation is not only modernized with a teenage lead character playing Mary Lennox, but with the modern tone comes a teenager with a boat load of angst and mood swings and attitude, not to mention this series is already full of reference humor that made me laugh out loud. If you haven't watched the first episode yet, you should do so immediately!
#3: "Enveloped in Love Shower Wrap" from ModCloth! I never actually knew that something called a "shower wrap" ever existed before. Why can't all towels have straps on them? It's such a clever idea, and it looks super cute! This should totally be more of a thing.
#4: Beast & Beauty His & Hers Ring Set from Hot Topic! I'm not gonna lie, if I got to be the Beauty to somebody's Beast, that might just earn a smile out of me :) And I mean that in the sense of getting to be a cool heroine and an avid and intelligent reader like Belle, since she is absolutely off-the-charts awesome.
#5: More People to Watch Flipped with on Saturday the 14th! Shelby and I are still planning on having a #WatchAlong to enjoy one of the cutest movies out there on Valentine's Day, Flipped, and anybody who is free that day is welcome to join us! Tweet me @KacieCruise to let me know if you'd like to watch Flipped and tweet along with us :)
#6: "If you wanna be my lover..." Sticker from lilliesandroses on RedBubble! Seeing this sticker on RedBubble just made me laugh XD both for the feminist insert and for the nostalgia factor. I think if I had this sticker I might put it somewhere easily visible to give both my friends and any potential boyfriends a good chuckle, like maybe on my bedroom door or something :P I already have 2 Redbubble stickers there near the doorknob: a picture of Harley Quinn and then a message that says, "You are now approaching a fangirl. Proceed with caution." XD
#7: "Everyday in a Letter Wallet" from ModCloth! In case you couldn't already tell by my previous wish lists, I'm a sucker for any accessories or outfits that carry a snail mail/postal theme. Plus this wallet is super cute with the heart and the love bird-themed stamp decorating the front. With the addition of this wallet catching my eye, I've actually created a Snail Mail-themed wishlist on ModCloth that you can check out - just 3 items there at the moment.
#8: Brown Steampunk Skirt from TalismanaDesigns on Etsy! I just casually happened upon this Etsy seller while searching for Steampunk-themed items, and these many skirts and even the pouch belts by her are both very eye-catching and also very affordable :) She makes a selection of pouches with a leaf design, which would be ideal for my Steampunk character. Once I have the money to spend on my new-found Steampunk habit, I'll definitely be picking up a few items from this shop :)

Meet Toni / Little House Of Crafts!

Guess what guys? Geeks Run The World posts are back! But some more nominations are needed for the future, so you can either email me at kcrules48[at!] to nominate a fellow geek or you can check out this nomination form to spotlight a favorite geek of yours.
Today I'm happy to introduce Toni, the woman behind Little House of Crafts! She was nominated by fellow geek & iggle Shawna Miller :)
"I nominated Toni because she radiates positivity, works hard, and loves tea as much as I love coffee. xo" - Shawna
Without further ado, time to meet Toni!
TWW(s): As of this moment, what are your Top 5 Geek Loves?
Toni: At this moment my Top 5 Geek Loves are: tea, The Hunger Games (I'm listening to the audiobooks again), Legend of Korra, The Big Bang Theory and Gotham.

TWW(s): If you had to describe yourself in 5 words, what would they be? Why those words?
Toni: Lifelong student and tea addict. I love learning and education. I'd be a lifelong student if I could afford it! And I'm addicted to tea. Caffeine and learning go well together!

TWW(s): Describe a typical day in your life. Where do you go? What do you do?
Toni: I work as a receptionist at an art and design school. When I'm not working I'm in class at night, doing homework or relaxing with my husband and friends.
TWW(s): What is the #1 thing in your life that you are the most excited about right now? Something that you're just dying to fangirl/gush about?
Toni: I just went back to school for a Graphic Design degree this past fall. I'm super excited about the knowledge and skills the degree is giving me.

TWW(s): What were your favorite subjects in elementary, middle and high school?
Toni: My favorite subject in elementary school was English. In middle school, it was Science and, in high school it was Anatomy and Physiology.

TWW(s): If you could travel anywhere, real or fictional, where would it be and why? A foreign country, the world of your favorite novel, sky's the limit!
Toni: I would go hang with Belle in her library. I'm sure I'd be intimidated by the Prince regardless of his form but with books I can just hide, right?
TWW(s): Reading any good books right now?
Toni: I just finished reading Fangirl! It was so good! I'm going to start The Maiden's Courage by Mary Gibbs next. I was privileged to be able to read an early draft of it. I'm so excited to see it shiny and published!

TWW(s): When did you start selling your wares online? Where did the name Little House of Crafting come from?
Toni: I started selling my wares online in May 2013. The name Little House of Crafting comes from a three day brainstorm session. Finally, I realized that I craft in a little, 650-square foot house. The name was perfect!
TWW(s): When did you first become an iggle and how did you originally hear about the IGGPPC?
Toni: I became an iggle sometime in 2013. I was researching places to find geeky friends and IGGPPC came up! The most exciting part was when I searched for iggles by location and found Shelby! We grew up a few miles from each other but met through IGGPPC!

TWW(s): Tell us about any pen pals you've met through the IGGPPC!
Toni: I have a couple pen pals overseas and a few in the states. Not everyone is from IGGPPC but we're all geeky! I'm terrible at sending letters yet I can't help but send off some tea with a note.
TWW(s): What is your favorite part of the letter writing process?
Toni: My favorite part of the letter writing process is decorating the envelope. I have a variety of stickers and sometimes I draw on it as well.

TWW(s): When did you start self-identifying as a geek?
Toni: I didn't start self-identifying with the geek term until after I finished graduate school. It was then that I had time to pursue video games and other geeky hobbies. I've always done things that would identify me as a geek. I always had my nose in a book. I watched anime and wrote lots of fanfiction in high school. I was part of a stage combat group in college so I know my way with a rapier and broadsword. I adored college as I was able to watch a season of Stargate a week. I did my homework too!
TWW(s): Knowing how to wield a broadsword is pretty cool. So if the Prince came and interrupted your reading time I'm sure you'd be able to take him down and then go back to your books XD

TWW(s): Look at the Iggle Manifesto and tell us your favorite line from it, or the line you'd like to most apply to yourself, and why.
Toni: "I will never stop learning" is my favorite line. Surprise! But in all seriousness I learn new things every day and love it. Learning never gets old!
Want to get to know Toni? Find her here:
Say hi & wish her a Happy Tuesday :)

Tales from the Borderlands - From The Gaming Enthusiast

Recently I finally got around to playing a new game that I'd pushed off to the side for a little while, and now I'm partly mad at myself for waiting so long and partly glad because now I have less time to anxiously wait for the next episode to be released. This game is one of the newest releases from Telltale Games, which anybody that listens to me knows I'm obsessed with. And since everybody around me doesn't want to hear me gush about it anymore, now all of YOU get to deal with me XD
Anybody that enjoys the Choose Your Own Adventure style of Telltale Games, and anybody that enjoys the unique hilarity of the humor provided in ever Borderlands game, you need to download the first episode of Tales from the Borderlands immediately if not sooner! Compared to all the other Telltale games I've played so far (and I'm in love with The Walking Dead series and eagerly waiting the 3rd season), I honestly have to say that this 1st episode is the funniest and most entertaining to play out of all of the episodes I've encountered, and for me that's saying something!

The Borderlands franchise definitely has a characteristic humor all its own, and that definitely exists in the first episode of this series. For those who haven't played or beaten any of the other games, I can honestly tell you that experience with the series prior to this game isn't completely necessary. Me personally, I own Borderlands 1 and 2 but have only played the 2nd game, and even then I haven't gotten far because it's a difficult game to play by one's self and I only know about 1 person that I've actually enjoyed playing BL2 with.

Still, if you're genuinely worried about not knowing what's going on before trying this game, you'll learn all you need to know about the time frame in which this game exists among its counterparts as well as grasp an idea of what jokes and characters can be expected by watching this trailer:
You might still be concerned with understanding the world of Borderlands or what a vault key is or why there are so many creepy bandits running around wearing masks, but rest assured, you could jump right into the first episode and have nothing to worry about. The 1st episode starts with a pretty great introduction to give you the basic info you'll need, and from there you're golden.
One of the fun things about this Telltale game in particular is because you're playing as not one but two separate characters, each with their own competing perspective that will help you to put all of the pieces together to make a complete story out of everything that goes down in the first episode.

Both of these characters are fun to play as, and Fiona in particular was a thrill for me because when I first heard her voice in the game it kept nagging at me because it sounded SO familiar. Then I went onto IMDB and figured it out. The voice of Fiona is done by the same voice actress that does the voice of Female Boss #1 in Saints Row 3, 4, and Gat Outta Hell. For anybody else who like me is a huge Saints Row fan, it's a little trippy but it just makes Fiona seem all the more badass.
Here's a bit of background on the two main characters: You start off playing as Rhys, a corporate guys working for Hyperion, which is basically douchebag central to the people of Pandora, the rich stooges up on their own little planet while the people of Pandora scrape to get by. Rhys is in line for a big promotion at the start of the game and plans to celebrate and party it up with his two best friends, Vaughn and Yvette once the money comes rolling in, but he hits a snag that leads him and Vaughn to head out on a quest to Pandora to steal his new boss' business deal behind his back.
Fiona is a con artist that was born and raised on Pandora. The only people she's close to is her kid sister and Felix, the thief that practically raised the both of them. The three of them are on the verge of the biggest score of their life . . . until it gets crapped on by unforseen circumstances.
This game actually implements some new game play than is included in other games by Telltale. As Rhys, you get to do some fun hacking, and you also get to control a Loader Bot to fight off a whole whack of bandits. The characters, the gameplay, and the general story structure is fresh and interesting this time around, which is great for BL fans, Telltale fans or people completely new to these types of games.

For those that aren't the most skilled gamers, like myself, Telltale games are a perfect way to join the gaming conversation because the gaming skill and knowledge needed to play these games is quite minimal. The majority of the game involved choosing between 4 conversation prompts, often including silence (which is a viable option), and when there's action involved the main controls needed is a little bit of aiming the controller stick towards a specific target or, more often than not, in a specific direction when a character needs to move or dodge an oncoming attack.
This series has 5 episodes, which are $4.99 US, but you can always buy the season pass and get all 5 episodes when they're released for a cheaper price. According to my online sources, the 2nd episode of this game will be released on February 10th for download, or February 11th for Xbox owners. Try out the first episode today and get psyched up for the second!

TWW(s) #WatchAlong Club Launch!

I do know that the IGGPPC has a cinema club, where members have a movie that they watch every month on their own which they then discuss with one another on the forums. However, I had the idea recently of doing something a little more low key that's just about a bunch of geeks (not necessarily iggles) hanging out, watching movies or even episodes of a show every month, and live-tweeting with one another as we watch them. The IGGPPC has hosted many watch-alongs and they are so much fun, and I thought I would try launching my own every month and see what happens.
Since we're kicking things off in February, the month of mushy feelings related to Valentine's Day, I thought we'd start with something simple and cute, Flipped. I read the book that this film was based on in 7th grade and have always had a fondness for it. It's directed by Rob Reiner, who brought us such great films as The Princess Bride and I'm pretty sure he also directed When Harry Met Sally as well.

We'll be watching this film on February 14th! A time has yet to be decided, but if people are up for watching this film on the 13th we will choose a time that works best for everyone. I already know that fellow iggle and awesome pen pal Shelby will be joining me on Saturday the 14th, so if you would like to join us and know what time would work best for you, let me know! You can always tweet me @KacieCruise and while we do this we might even use the hashtag #TWWsWatch! Hope that you guys will be joining us :)

Always Be Thankful #2

I should probably be posting these more often, because I'm always thankful for something or other in my life, and then I end up feeling bad for not taking the time to show my gratitude, and the guilt cycle goes on and on. My mother is an expert at guilt, and she picked up her skills from my grandmother. Not sure whether or not this is something I'm necessarily thankful for . . .
#1: I'M GOING TO BE AN AUNT!!! In case anybody thought something else when they saw this picture, no I'm not pregnant, and no this isn't my dog. The dog that consistently annoys me at home is half Chihuahua, and isn't completely made of muscle like my brother's pure bred boxer situated here. This is news that I've been holding onto since December (and even something that I hinted at in my last Always be Thankful post), and I thought they wouldn't be making an announcement until February, but now that they're telling people, I can finally tell you guys how excited I am at the prospect of being an aunt! That child is going to grow up to be a geek, as iggles as my witnesses, and if I'm unable to do that then at the very least their child is going to be an avid reader! My mom and I are rooting for a girl, as you may have guessed :)
Of course a photo had to be taken at the moment where my mouth was full of cheesy popcorn... :P
#2: The friends I've made at Brock in my program. I finally made friends that are also English majors! AND IT ONLY TOOK 5 YEARS!!! XD We keep joking about how we wish that we had all met/started hanging out a lot earlier in our academic careers, because now a handful (or at least 2) of us are graduating and are off to new places either to work or to continue our education. This picture was taken while the 5 of us watched The Princess Bride (and me and another girl were pretty much reciting the entire thing under our breath XD) and we also played the card game Once Upon A Time and it was a very enjoyable evening, including snacks and pizza stuffs! I sincerely hope to keep in touch with these ladies, especially whilst I am at Humber.
#3: The generous friend in lecture that lent me her laptop cable during class :) It's usually the smallest things that have the biggest impact, and this particular favor that arrived out of the blue when I thought all hope was lost (after all, how would I be able to work on blog posts in class if my laptop was dead?), I was so surprised and so happy. My hero was actually somebody I have known since my first year at Brock, probably what you'd call a formal friend - we would chat when we shared classes, and the two of us hung out during Frosh Week in our 2nd year, but other than that we've never actually hung out outside of class - and so her "sacrifice"of lending me power for the majority of our lecture had that much more impact. It meant a lot to me :)

5 Favorite Funko Pop Figures

It's 5 Fandom Friday on a Saturday, who'da thunk it? XP Anyway, instead of showing off my 5 favorite pop vinyl figures that I own (because I only have about 6-7 of them), I'm going to showcase the 5 that I wish I had :) If anybody has any of these 5 and feels like sending 'em to Canada, I certainly wouldn't object XD
#1: Rocket & Dancing (Bobblehead) Groot from The Guardians of the Galaxy! It would be a lot cooler if the Dancing Groot could actually dance, but he's still freaking adorable, am I right? Plus Rocket's my favorite character in the movie, hands down. I feel like you wouldn't be able to get one of these guys without the other.
#2: Mashmallow Ghostbusters! Pretty sure these were a SDCC 2014 exclusive, but maybe there's a chance somebody bought 2 of these and has an extra set to spare? XDD I actually only just watched Ghostbusters for the first time this past year, but since then I've become an even bigger fan than I was just listening to the theme song when my co-workers would play it at work.
#3: Wall-E :D I have passed by the Wall-E Funko Pop figure at HMV at least a half-dozen times, but I haven't been able to convince myself to finally pick it up, although I really do wish that I had this little guy sitting on my shelf right now.
#4: Daenerys from Game of Thrones! There's now at least three different designs for Dany out there now, and I honestly can't decide which one I like best, but I know that having at least one as a part of my collection would be pretty freaking amazing.

#5: Ezio from Assassins Creed II! The second Assassins Creed game is definitely my favorite out of the series (mainly because I'm really bad at driving pirate ships XP), and Ezio is without a doubt my favorite character in the series too, so out of all the Assassins Creed Funko Pop figured, this would be the first one I would choose to pick up and add to my collection.
