10 Animated Characters I Wouldn’t Mind Spending Valentine’s Day With

Now I know I can’t be only one who’s had a crush on an animated character before. I have more fictional crushes than real life crushes, but if I didn’t narrow this post down to animated characters I’d be here until next Valentine’s Day!


Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop Nuff said.

Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop– Just look at her.

Gambit from X-Men– Everyone’s favorite ragin cajun. I’m a sucker for accents, even Nawlins’ ones.

Jessica Rabbit from Who Framed Roger Rabbit– Obligatory.

Howl from Howl’s Moving Castle- That hair!

Kwame from Captain Planet– He was adorable (with an accent!) and at least he didn’t have the lame ass heart power.

Mugen and Jin from Samurai Champloo– Yes they come as a pair because sometimes I like yin and sometimes I like yang.

Trent from Daria– He was too cool for school. (Shout out to Kelsi!)

Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moon– I’m guaranteed a rose.

Spawn- From the HBO show I was way too young to be watching.

Portal 2 Valentine’s Day Preorder Video

Gamer guys and gals don’t want flowers and chocolate for Valentine’s Day. We want you to preorder Portal 2 for us! *hint hint*

Valve released this “Romance Safety Compliance Guide” on behalf of Aperture Laboratories (because they are all about safety). The video tells us the way to win our valentine’s heart is to preorder Portal 2 . I recommend you take their advice since they highlighted the alarming statistic that 4/5 women get crushed to death by giant diamonds everyday. It’s got to be true! Aperture wouldn’t dare lie to us… Right?

The release date for Portal 2 is April 19th.
Preorder Portal 2 here!

Picture of the Week- Doctor Who Valentine’s Day ECards

Happy Valentine’s Day Whovians! What better way to celebrate this day of love than with the show with a lot of heart, well two hearts to be exact. My brother suggested I watch Doctor Who sometime last year and once I finally got around to it my life hasn’t been the same since! I’ve laughed and cried and everything in between. I’ve even had dreams of David Tennant (#DavidTennantGroupie), but then again how could you not?!

My ringtone is the TARDIS takeoff/landing and when my phone rings I instinctively run to the room expecting the doctor is there with the TARDIS ready to finally take me as his newest companion (I keep a packed suitcase by my bed just in case). Expect to see a blog post from me soon about 10 Reasons why I love Doctor Who. Narrowing it down the 10 will be the hard part.

I found these fantastic/brilliant/lovely DW Valentine’s Day ecards on Craig Hurle‘s Doctor Who and The TARDIS Facebook page. The Simpsonized DW ecards were made by the ultra awesome Dean aka Springfield Punx check out his blog for other Simpsonized characters. (If someone knows the other artists can you let me know please?) Check out his Facebook page for more goodies and follow him on twitter @TheDrWhoTARDIS. Which ones are your favorites?
