Two Questions for You!

Cake isn't something we eat much anymore. Maybe after a funeral or at a meeting where someone brought a dessert. I like chocolate cake with white cream cheese frosting. When someone bakes a birthday cake for me, that's what it will be.
When one of the kids calls me and asks "What kind of cake would Mom like for her birthday?" I reply, "Chocolate cake with white cream cheese frosting." Then there is about 4 seconds of silence followed by, "Dad, isn't that YOUR favorite cake?" And then I innocently reply, "Oh, yeah, you're right."
So, what's your favorite cake???
***************
On a different subject. Tomorrow is our primary election day. We are going to, for all intents and purposes, be electing a new Governor for Nebraska in the Primary. Tell me how you would vote. Candidate C has always been your favorite. You like his ideas. But he only has 7% support in the polls. Candidate A or B will win. They are deadlocked at about 44%. You have a preference between those two.
Do you stick to your guns and vote for a sure loser, or do you try to make a difference in the 'real' race???

Boiled fruit cake... Yuuumm.
Yeah I think you probably need to vote where you might make a difference Cliff, loyalty is one thing Stupidity is another.

The last time I voted with my heart (Perot), Clinton got elected. So go make a difference, Cliff.

I would vote for the A or B that I prefer if the C can't win.

I like yellow cake with chocolate frosting OR chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting.
I also make a cake that uses yellow cake and a can of peaches mixed in the cake mix, then frosted with cream cheese frosting. It is really moist and really gooooood.

This is the kind of poll I can sink my teeth into...made-from-scratch German Chocolate Cake with thick icing all around and between all five layers.

Britmum said...

My Grans fairy cakes are the best with butterfly wings and buttercream frosting.

Not really up on American politics yet so I will go with you Cliff.

Cake?? Is there any that is a non-favorite?? Actually it's hard to pick a favorite, but I guess it'd be chocolate with sour cream white icing. Of course I love the cakes you buy that are white with all that yummy thick white icing too. I do not like any cake with coconut or coconut icing.

I don't know who you should vote for. Just go with your gut when you get in the booth.

Cliff Morrow said...

Rachel, all my 'gut' ever said was eat. That's my problem.
Tomorrow when I get in the booth my gut will ask, "Did you bring a candy bar?"

poopie said...

I'd vote for the one who actally has a chance.

As for cake, Spice cake with cream cheese icing is my bestest!!

You're not God, so vote for the best candidate and let God determine the outcome. Since we are held accountable for our actions, I would want it on record in Heaven that I voted for the candidate that most closely echoed God's heart.

Maria said...

There is only one cake and that is carrot cake with a butter-cream frosting.

On one hand your vote for candidate C would show him he had a following and that he might do better in another election someday. and on the other hand, your vote might be one of the deciding votes between A and B. Where is the wise Judge Solomon when we need him?

Whatever happens, I wish the best for the State of Nebraska.

First, for the most important of the two topics - Black Forest Cheese Cake, oink. Your second question is age old isn't it? So, I will answer it with YOUR answer. The answer is in your question.

Jim said...

Did you ever eat any of my mom's chocolate role cake? That is my favorite.

One vote doesn't make a difference, so just don't vote.

No, seriously, I would vote for your second choice who might be helped by your one vote.

We haven't had that problem in Texas since we went ssooooooo Republican. I almost didn't vote in our primary so I could sign Kinky Friedman's petition. But then a local church friend needed my vote in a close primary race so Kinky will have to get somebody else to sign his petition.
