The other day I had a friend in my home office looking around at my Buzz collection. She asked, “What’s your creepiest Buzz?” And it took me a little while to actually think of it. Mexican Buzz is a little off, but not creepy. “Stars and Stripes” Buzz is weird, but not creepy. Then my eyes fell upon a bit of paper laying on a box of collectibles… and I knew I had found the single most creepy item in my Buzz Lightyear collection.
Sorry, but due to a very late Sunday I didn’t have time to write up a full blown article… so you get this.
Buzz Lightyear The Freaking Avenger
This Lady Who Freaking Looks Like Buzz Lightyear
This is the sticker from the back of my Honda Element. I got it off Ebay in 2003 and it’s been on there ever since.
As you can see the vinyl is dried, cracked and brittle… but it’s still hanging in there… even with the windshield wiper rubbing across the top half.
This is a butt-old Buzz Lightyear lollipop.
I’m not gonna lie… it looks about as eatable as a urinal cake. Be that as it may I will keep him until my dying day (and beyond).

Jan knew how to give Buzz Lightyear gifts… unlike some people. Not only would you get a bag full of goodies, Jan would make you a punch bowl cake.

Half the time I would forget and they’d fall out all over my lap. Jan was more than an admin… she was like a second mom.
As you can see my daughter Jenna is back to help me show off some, if not all, of my Buzz Lightyear books. Aren’t you glad I’m grouping some of these things together? Would be pretty boring reading about one book a day.
Today my son J is helping me display a couple of Halloween related items. We’ve got a Buzz Head Treat Bucket and a Buzz Lightyear Costume.
Disney pins are fun! I don’t really do the whole pin collecting thing with the lanyards and the trading… but unless you’ve been to a Disney park you don’t know about that anyway.
