How's It Going? Badass Robot Warrior Edition

I don’t know about you folks, but my desk is protected by one of the Autobot’s greatest warriors. Welcome back to our daily open thread.

I’ve been a fan of the Autobot’s first major female-identifying robot since she made her debut in Transformers: The Movie back in 1986. Other ladybots had appeared in the cartoon series, but Arcee was obviously a star. Companion to Springer, babysitter of Daniel Witwicky, and all-around pink person. Perhaps she kickstarted my love for the color?

I don’t collect a lot of Arcee toys, mainly because there aren’t a lot of Arcee toys, and those that do exist make her look like a woman with a car on her back. The version released for the kid-friendly Transformers Cyberverse line of toys just has so much personality I couldn’t resist. She loves fun, and also shooting other robots. I like those things as well.


Do you like fun? How’s it going?

Hey, you know, I do like fun! I had some fun this weekend having a Cuban sandwich picnic in a park with my wife. Weather was great and we’re starting to get that magical sunset light in the evenings. Looking forward to more of that.

The week ahead doesn't automatically have anything fun built into it, but it also doesn't have any barriers to fun other than work. Fingers crossed for fun!
