So it just so happens that my family and I have recently entered the world of Cable Television. I know, I know. We are a bit old fashioned and cheap. But we have dawned anew….and let me just tell you! There are a lot of channels being piped into my TV every single day. Who knew there were cooking shows available ROUND THE CLOCK! Down right amazing. And I must add here, there is no one walking this good earth that is more annoying than Sponge Bob. I don’t care if he DOES have Square Pants.
So when we signed up for Cable TV we got this special promo deal that included all channels for a short time. Yes. I said ALL channels.
Now we are a little bit naive, and old fashioned as I previously mentioned. We didn’t realize what ALL channels meant.
Didn’t realize until my TeenSonMark came in to my room one morning and said “Um, Mom. We turned off the TV. There was some show on called The Naked News at Nine.”
Excuse me? The NAKED news?
Turn it off! Unplug the contraption! Deliver all remotes to me immediately! No. One. Browse. Any. Channels. We have made a serious error….there are inappropriately naked people hanging out on the television just waiting to scar the eyes of innocent children.
Shut the front door.
Or should I say “Open the front door” and throw out the trash.
Which is what we did in the form of some fancy technology that allows one to block the naked.
Wow. Seriously. Naked, on the News. Just another one of my Mother-Of -The-Year moments. (There are getting to be so many!)
You might be thinking, what in the world does this story have to do with Buzz Light Year. Well, after I saw to it that all our naked visitors were blocked…I discovered some fabulous things. Shows like The Cake Boss, The Ace of Cakes and Cupcake Wars. Get out of town….there are some talented people out there! Talented people making FABULOUS, OUT OF THIS WORLD creations.
I am not one of those people.
This Buzz Light Year Cake is just an easy way to put a little smile on a little birthday face. I’ll let you in on a secret, my friends. Kids don’t care if all of your decorating is perfect.
Just look at the back of my cake here. The Cake Boss would be appalled. It would not win any awards. However, I’m not out to win awards.
