Susie, you couldn't be more right. On both counts! And boy does that upside down cake look comforting. Happy Sunday!

Anonymous Sharkey said...

The cake looks delicious.

I think you said you have another Euro appointment tomorrow. I hope you'll find it comforting that I said a little prayer for you this morning. For good results, and for peace until you know the outcome.

You're trying to distract us all by sending us to Kranki's and Deb's, but we haven't forgotten you!

Upside down cake?

In the imortal words of Brak from Space Ghos: I like gumballs and rumballs, I like cheeseballs and cheesecake, I like pineapple upside down cake, Why's it upside down? WHY'S IT UPSIDE DOWN?

Now I am going to have Brak songs stuck in my head all day. Good thing I have his cd.

Oh and now I want cake.

Blogger Karen said...

Okay, far be it from me to contradict Mr. Nizer, but I do think it's the other way around. The food came first and the words came later.

Craving pineapple now.

I like both quotes very much.
Words and food are very comforting.
As Sharkey said we have not forgotten you. I know that I have not. I tell people to imagine something when they are having a test done. Especially when you are
going to be "konked out" Since you
are going to the "Eurologist" I think your mental voyage could be
a scenic trip to Paris, sitting
at a cafe EATING.
Now about that picture. Yes I color my hair, I have bags under the eyes which are covered with about 1/2 lb of makeup. You are very kind. But thanks you for NOT
calling me Marie Osmond.

I don't think you can audit the class you are in this class for a grade. The pressure is mounting on you.


Blogger eclectic said...

If you take the European doctor a piece of that cake, maybe he/she will reconsider and send you home afterall? Fingers crossed for you -- or should I make that legs? Sending blove,


Blogger Jim said...

I....I'm ashamed to admit it, and...well....

Hi, my name is Jim and I've never had pineapple upside-down cake.


Blogger Ern said...

I love coming here on Sunday mornings. It's an excellent start to the day. And I'll add my words of comfort to those of the others. We're thinking of/praying for you. *HUGS*

Anonymous lawbrat said...

The picture you chose is a perfect match for the Proverb.

Have a wonderful Sunday. I've been keeping you in my prayers also.

Much love to you.

Blogger Nina said...

I try to never miss a Sunday at Susie's place. I love both quotes, and now find myself craving pineapple upside down cake. Thanks Susie, you are precious.

Blogger Closet Metro said...

That Suzie Fairchild, she's very wise.

Blogger mrtl said...


Speaking of yummies, I'm making the brittle today during naptime, and it should go out tomorrow.

Blogger Von Krankipantzen said...

That looks amazing. I know the comfort is much appreciated around here.

Blogger abcd said...

Susie Fairchild what a wise woman and a wise soul. I came to thank you for all you do and all you are.
Wishing you good luck tomorrow.

BTW We are having a baby I am 6 weeks along in the process. I was
a bit surprised-but we are all very
happy. I think God and Sarah are involved with this baby. I was on the pill. Is this TMI on your blog?

Blogger momo said...

Wise words!

Thanks for encouraging us all to reach out and do a little something to touch others lives. You are a very special lady.

Hope all goes well with you tomorrow. you will be in my prayers.

Blogger Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Yep. I could use some words of comfort at the moment.

Blogger Andrea said...

If you think it will help you get your mind off of your own worries, you could think about a little girl (under a year and a half) I know tomorrow who is getting a feeding tube inserted. I'll be thinking of BOTH of you :)

Blogger Susie said...

squirl, thanks, sis. You know, I'm in an award-giving mood. You might have perfect attendance at the Church of the Sunday Post. I'll have to check on that.

sharkey, I will post an update. There seems to have been a change of plans. But there goes my thinking, "I don't have to say anything; no one will even remember that I'm having that thing tomorrow" ;) Oh, but whenever my tests happen, I absolutely do find it comforting that God is hearing my name a lot. Prayers are never wasted, there's no such thing as too many, IMO.

jess, I don't know this Brak. I do know cake, though. Have some :)

karen, isn't pineapple a wonderful thing?

nikki, OK, I'm going to have to start keeping a Yiddish notebook, and being more studious. I will email you with an update. Like I said at your place, Marie wishes she looked like you.

eclectic, don't think I won't try it. I'm pretty creeped out by the whole thing, as it approaches.

jim, were you raised by wolves? How in the name of all that's sweet and fruity have you not had this? I'll come to your place and show you how to make it.

ern, thank you. I always smile to see you here. See comment to Sharkey, too.

lawbrat, thanks for the love and prayers.

nina, aw, thank you. You are so kind. The cake is gooooood, if I do say so myself ;)

closetmetro, I like to think so ;)

mrtl, mmmmmm

kranki, yea, comfort is a good thing. In all its forms.

lisabeth, ohmygosh, first of all, CONGRATULATIONS! Second, TMI? Honey, I went on here about peepee troubles; surely your blessed event is not TMI! I imagine God and Sarah high-five-ing each other on the big surprise for you :)

misfit, mmmmmm

momo, thanks, sweetie. I'll take all the prayers I can get.

ssnick, I'll come and see what's up. Hang in there.

andrea, it does take my mind off myself to think about others. I am a firm believer in that. Thanks for the reminder, and the little one and her family will be in my prayers.

It's officially Monday now where you live, and I wanted to be among the first to wish you strength, peace, and laughter as you're a-peein'.


And, in the spirit of solidarity, I have thought of what we can do to honor you on this day: I am urging all bloggers to voluntarily pee in a cup at work (or other similarly public restroom), and call out loudly, "This one's for Susie Fairchild." If nothing else, it may drum up business for your colleagues all over North America, and I'm sure they'll thank you.

Blogger Dy said...

bee-yoo-ti-full cake!

true comfort, however, requires chocolate ;-)

Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

Susie, you don't know Brak? Oh, nooooooo, that can't be allowed to continue. Check here. Some would call him Space Ghost's bitch, but I call him...well, dreamy. In an uptight, paranoid, half-wit kinda way.

And yes, we all do want cake.

Blogger Susie said...

princesskristine, we love you, too :)

eclectic, wow, that is a whole 'nother kind of award. Not that I want anyone to render it graphically so that I can post it. :0

dy, that is most often the case here, too. This was a case of "what's in the pantry . . . pineapples!"

bucky, OK, I saw them. I am rather infantile in my cartoon tastes. Specifically, I like their edges rounded. Like Little Bear.

Blogger Annejelynn said...

my gpa and I have the same bday and his cake of choice has always been upside-down pineapple cake - me? Angel food cake... but I love that sticky, gooey upside-down stuff too.

Blogger Susie said...

annejelynn, we don't need those kind of details, what you do behind closed doors is your business ;)
