Solo Cheddar X-stacy

Yeah, yeah, I know I'm partially recycling post titles but isn't imitation some sort of flattery? What if I'm imitating myself? Oh well. Its that time again, time for the goodness that is the Cheddar X, It's Cheesier. We've got a short week busted in half by Turkey Day tomorrow and I know most of the nation will be in a tryptophan induced coma by four in the afternoon, just about the time we head out to start looting houses for Christmas presents.

Enough about me. Let's get to the Cheddar X questions this week.

1. What's the funniest town name you've ever seen?
2. What was the last museum you went to?
3. When was the last time you were grossed out? (I'd been thinking about narrowing this down to the last time you were grossed out a pal's house but why limit responses?)
4. What is the best blog title you've come across or made up on your own?
5. Do you live in your hometown now? What caused you to stay or move away?
6. If you were a criminal mastermind, how would you take over the world?

Next week question notes: I'm working on a set of questions that's intended to be answered by using song titles of your favorite band. I was thinking it might be kind of fun to not name the band and see if people can figure it out. What do folks think?

Submit questions you might have on the tag board or in the comments.

Thanks for the cool emails I've been getting this week, they make all of this way more fun to know that other people are getting kicks out of it as well. Which reminds me, if you know of some other blogs answering the Cheddar X, post a comment so the rest of us can check them out.

And there it is, this week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier. Go get some!

An Extra Large Serving of Movie Themed Cheddar X

I should be careful what I ask for. Last week I asked for a little help on this week's movie themed set of questions and Chewie unleashed a flood of inquiries. Joey, our newest member and writer of BuggreAlleThis added in one and I had one as well. Which makes this the largest Cheddar X, It's Cheesier ever!

Without further yapping on my part, let's get right to the action. And, since its such a large list of q's, don't feel required to answer them all if you don't want to. Heck, you don't have to answer any if you don't feel like it, that's the beauty of the Cheddar X!

From Chewie,
1. What's your favorite/least favorite movie?
2. What's the best movie-adaptation of a book?
3. What movie makes you cry?
4. What movie do you watch to cheer you up?
5. Any amusing stories involving movies or the movie theater?
6. Would you rather go to the theater or stay home and watch a movie?
7. Are you more awed by a good plot or special effects?
8. Who is your favorite/least favorite actor/actress?

From Johnny Huh,
9. What's your favorite cult movie?

From Joey,
10. Matrix Revolutions, worth the wait or WTF?

I've come across a few other places where the Cheddar X gospel is being spread outside of the member set which is totally cool and the Cheddar X-ecutive staff is very pleased but hey, if you're playing then why not post a comment when you've added your responses? One blog that I can't seem to find anymore took the Cheddar X a step further and interviewed himself and I damned near fell out of my chair laughing.

I just Googled Cheddar X and found a whole bunch more blogs that have taken part. Kind of cool!

Come on In, the Cheddar's Fine

It becomes Thursday before I know it and I'm forced to scramble a bit, on occasion, to come up with insightful questions for the Cheddar X, It's Cheesier.

I've been noticing a decline in the participation levels and would welcome any input on how to regenerate people's interest in the Cheddar X but don't expect me to go jumping out of a cake or anything like that. Let me know what would make the Cheddar X more valuable for you, how to improve the product.

But let's get to the meat of the show and get down to the question asking.
1. What's the best advice you've ever gotten?
2. What is the best thing you've ever found?
3. What three words describe your blog?
4. What was the most recent thing you did that seemed like a good idea at the time but later events proved otherwise?
5. What two celebrities would you most like to see fight to the death?
6. What do you think is the best thing about the internet? What's the worst?

Next week, taking a cue from Chewie, let's try a movie themed Cheddar X for next week. I could use some help coming up with the set of questions so please don't be bashful and post them in the comments, on the board or email them to me.

Also, we've got a new member this week, everyone amble over and say hi to Tea.

The Hot, Fresh and Always Tasty Cheddar X

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to answer this week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier with wit, humor, some biting commentary, personal history and passion. That said, let's get to the goods.

This week's questions, no theme, just the randomness that oozes from my head.
1. What good did you do in the world today?
2. What fashion trend are you glad that's gone away? Or what trend are you waiting to go away?
3. What's your greatest sports moment, your own or one you've witnessed?
4. Who would you nominate for the most annoying person award?
5. What do you do to get yourself ready to write? Either blogging or other writing? (I.e. I'm a whiskey drinker and like to have a tumbler to sip from when I write fiction).
6. Mac or PC or Linux? Why? (I'm curious about this because it seems like the majority of bloggers I know are Mac folks but maybe I'm just wishfully thinking).

The Cheddar X welcomes a new member this week, everyone say hi to Kitty Says, Kitty Says, this is everyone. Have fun and play nice or, if you plan to play mean then at least do with some humor tossed in.

Possible Themes in the works (and yes, please voice your vote in the comments): Sex, as in Cheddar XXX, music, sports, books, politics. I'm sure there are plenty more to think about choose from but my brain's tired and this is all that's coming out for right now. Feel free to make suggestions on the tag board or in the comments.

Ahh, the Cheddar X, It's Cheesier, so tasty, so piquant and spreadable. Go get some!
