Bitter Cheddar

And now for something a little different, Sarcastic Cheddar X, It's Cheesier. Interpret it however you like. I'd thought that it would be fun to have a bitter and cynical sarcasm based Cheddar X and this is the best I could come up with on short notice.

1. What sucked today?
2. How are ya doing?
3. Got any plans for the weekend?
4. Hey, is that a new haircut?
5. What's up?
6. Spare some change?
7. What is it with kids today?

Next week will be normal questions again so I don't get too backed up with them. I may also try a new idea, something like MadLibs but easier. Kind of a fill in the blank concept. I'll flesh it out more next week.

By the way, has anyone already invented the word sarcaustic? When your sarcasm is nasty enough to burn a hole in someone? If not then I have. And I'll add it to my ever growing lexicon.

Also, we do have another new member to the Cheddar X family, everyone, this is Mojo Mark, MojoMark, this is everyone.

And that's this week's Twilight Zone induced Cheddar X, It's Cheesier. Go Get Some!

Late Cheddar is Betta than Neva Cheddar

There's no hard and fast rules of when the new Cheddar X, It's Cheesier questions will go up but I've been aiming for a Thursday delivery since the start. Yesterday just didn't happen though, for a variety of reasons that aren't important. What's important is that we're all here now, salivating over some fresh Cheddar X!

Before we get to this week's questions, I've been thinking about another theme week concept. How does Biting Sarcasm Week sound? And if you said, incredibly lame then I think we're on the right track. Anyway, give it some thought and toss a question up on the Zonk Board.

And onto the questions.
1. Do you read more male or female bloggers? Why do you suppose that is?
2. Does politicizing a blog send you packing if the blogger's beliefs are opposed to your own? Or, do you only read opinions that you agree with?
3. Do you read other Cheddar X answers before writing your own?
4. What was the last utterly ridiculous thing someone said to you?
5. What world record would you most like to hold?
6. What types of blog posts make you want to comment more often than not?
7. Does your significant other have a beloved article of clothing that you hate? Have you contemplated "accidentally" destroying it?

I've got more but let's stick a fork in it now and call it done for this week.

Happy Cheddaring to you all!

And Another Bites into the Cheddar!

This time we welcome, Simple Simon into our cheesy ranks.

And, truth be told, he'd asked me to add him before but I spaced it. Sorry, Simon! Thanks for the nudge!

Movie Night at the Cheddar!

It is THAT time again, folks, time to settle in for some good old Cheddar X, It's Cheesier!

This week is a return to the concept of the favorite band songs as answers from a month or two ago. Only this time we're using movies instead of song titles.

Choose your favorite actor and answer the questions below with movies they have been in. Best bet is to hit up a site like Reel or something like it to get a full list of your actor's movies. As before with the music themed version of this, you can opt to disclose the actor or not and allow readers to try and guess who it is. It may be too difficult to answer all the questions with a single actor's filmography so you can either skip some or split the list in two and use two different actors. Do whatever makes you happy.

1. What is your home life like?
2. What is your first thought when you think about high school?
3. What is your strongest personality trait?
4. What's your work like?
5. What do you wish your job was?
6. Describe your partner.
7. Describe yourself.
8. What's some good advice?
9. Tell us about your childhood.
10. What would you say to your ten year old self?

Alrighty then, there's this week's new and oh so cool Cheddar X, It's Cheesier!

Also, we do have a new member to the Cheddar this week, everyone make sure to make XSet feel welcome!

The Cheddar is Coming, The Cheddar is Coming!

Its a shiny new year and the hard working staff at the Cheddar X, It's Cheesier has been hard at work to bring you better Cheddar.
A new concept is being begun, a MadLibs Cheddar X. Yes, this first week is a cheater MadLibs that's a redirect to the MadLibs site but future versions will be all Cheddar, all the time.

But enough about that, let's get into the cheese of the Cheddar X, this week's questions.
From Snooze Button Dreams
1. Do you have a pet name for your significant other? If so, how did it come about?
And the rest are my own.
2. What was your favorite cartoon growing up? What's your favorite cartoon now?
3. What is your best way to save money?
4. What was your most frivolous purchase in the last couple of months?
5. What word would you like to see banished from use forever?
6. What is the strangest thing about someone that has attracted you? (I.e. the way someone walked, the way they chewed, along those lines)
7. What was your most memorable New Year's Eve? Why?

And now......
MadLibs ala Cheddar X
MadLibs brought to the Cheddar X by Madlibs. Take your word list and plug them into this page to get a short story based on an excerpt from The Catcher in the Rye.
Because I had to go and look them up to make sure, some definitions.

Come up with these words and then plug them in at the link above:

I'm open to aid on the MadLibs idea, either coming up with stories to plug the words into or whatever people feel like doing to help.
And that's it, the first Cheddar X, It's Cheesier of 2004!

Hark, the Herald Angels Sing of the Cheddar X!

Hope everyone got through the momentous changing of the calendar the other night. Aside from a few minor fireworks and childlike giggling, this was a fairly mellow New Year's but that was to be expected. But enough about the past, let's move forward into this year's first Cheddar X, It's Cheesier!

1. How do you organize your music?
2. Do you have more online or more hard copy music?
3. What are your three most favorite bands you found or heard of online?

And now some obvious questions.
4. What are your New Year's resolutions, if any?
5. How did you do on your last year's resolutions?

And that's about it for the X this week, I'm still working on the MadLibs idea but should have it pulled together over the weekend.

Happy Cheddar X, It's Cheesiering!
