Okay I am freaking out right now. The coolest thing just happened to me. Something that I never thought would happen. If you look on my blog roll, I have a link to Joseph Mallozzi’s blog. For those of you who don’t know who he is, he is one of the producers for Stargate Atlantis. One of my absolute FAVORITE TV shows. So yesterday I was on his blog and I posted this comment:
I was telling one of my regular customers the other day that I would love to have the opportunity to decorate a cake for Atlantis’s 100th episode. I think it would be so much fun. Just thought I would throw that out there for you. I’m thinking about decorating one for my city’s fair in September. I’ll send you the pics if I do.
So then I get on tonight to see what he wrote because, unlike me, he posts everyday and I love to see what answers he has for fans in his “mailbag”. I was a little surprised to see this as the sixth question and answer, even though it’s more of a statement than an question:

Answer: No idea what MGM has planned for the event – but I checked out the pics on your blog and have to say your cakes look almost too beautiful to eat. Almost.
I immediately got on the phone and told my parents. I just now stopped shaking from excitement and I have had a smile on my face for an hour. I just can’t believe that he looked at my pictures. I know that sounds dorky, but I don’t know how many people that are known by millions around the world have looked at my work. So I told him tonight that I would post more if he wanted to see more and I shall deliver.
I also told him that I’m in if MGM wants me and they don’t even have to pay me. They have entertained me for four years and are celebrating their 100th episode that will air next year at the end of their fifth season. Getting the opportunity to entertain them for a short amount of time with a beautiful cake that they can devour and hopefully enjoy would be all the payment I need. I love doing what I do and I can’t ask for a better job than mine no matter how stressful it can and will be at times.
Thanks for lookin’ Joe. Enjoy.
