Nacho Cheddar X

As in, "hey man, that's nacho (not your) cheese" that's right, campers, this week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier was heisted from Blown Fuse because she had her readers send in questions and they kicked butt.

And away we go.....
1. Name 3 things you absolutely love.
2. If you had to give 2 of them up which would they be (and why)?
3. What is your all time favorite memory EVER?
4. What is the one thing that happened in high school that would make you avoid your class reunion?
5. What is your dream job, no matter how untrained you might be or unrealistic and bizarre it might be?
6. What's one thing you think you're really good at?

Well this was a nice and easy week to get the Cheddar X, It's Cheesier up. I've got two secret X's in the works right now although I may end up trashing one. Stay tuned to X!

Come and Sit with the Cheddar for a Spell

Yep, its time again for some tasty Cheddar X, It's Cheesier questions.

1. What is the worst or best insult someone's said to you?
2. What's the lamest platitude you know?
3. Do you pick up hitchhikers? When was the last time you did?
4. What's your favorite fruit and how do you like to eat it?
5. What's your favorite drive or drives?
6. Which begs the question, what's your favorite hike or walk?

Yeah, that'll cover it for this week. Not sure what's on tap for next week but I'll try to get it up earlier in the week if possible because I know most of us don't do much blogging over the weekend since we're not at work.

And a double welcome this week, first of we've got Machine Gun Sun who needs some validation to stave off a pending nervous breakdown so make sure to stop by and tell her how awesome she is.

And then we also have Caught in the X Fire (a blog after my heart!).

Everybody, this is Candida and Stevie. Play nice and share the cheese with them!

Tip Toeing through the Cheddar

Trying to get a jump on this week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier, I'm putting the questions up early.

No theme this week, just random things that cross my mind long enough for me to record somewhere, somehow.

1. What does party mean to you? (I.e. when you go and get your party on, what does that mean?)
2. What was the first thing you thought or said when you saw your significant other for the first time?
3. Do you talk to yourself? Why?
4. What's been your biggest personal change in the last ten years?
5. What are you most looking forward to?

And that's all I've got for this week.

Friday Cheese

Yeah, I know, its Friday, where's the Cheddar? Its been a busy week and I'd meant to get this up last night but oh well, here we go with this week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier (and yeah, I know I'd mentioned the number X concept last week but I'm still struggling with it, bear with me).

1. When was the last time you caught yourself before doing something really stupid? What was it?
2. What was your last nightmare about?
3. How do you entertain yourself in traffic?
4. Who inspires you?
5. What trait in the opposite sex makes you wonder most?
6. Which of the seven deadly sins is the worst? Why?
7. Do you blog on the weekends much or at all?

And that's it, my tank's empty, I need to sleep for about a month (being woken up by a puppy with razors for claws scratching at your back gets old pretty quickly).

By the way, for the newer folks, you've got questions? Toss them into the comments or on the Zonkboard. I can use all the help I can get some weeks. Other weeks (usually when I drive into work alot for some reason) I have plenty of questions flowing.

So that's the Cheddar X, It's Cheesier for this week. Have a great weekend everybody! As long as mine includes a good long nap with a baseball game or two on, I'll be a happy camper.

More Cheddary Word Associations

Because I had such a good time with the word association Cheddar from a couple of weeks ago, I felt like doing another round of Cheddar X, It's Cheesier Word Associations but with a twist.

In a corrupted form of the old game of telephone crossed with the original word associations, this week's X is the Double Word Associations. There are a couple of ways to do it and I think any of them are fine, you can either go through the list once and then go through it again on the first new list or go with the first two different words that each word in the list evokes (and yes, Jim, I did add that "differently" just for you).

For example, if the word is Capital, my first association is lowercase, after completing the list, I would come back to the newly generated word list and do the same word association game on the new words (is it me or am I waaaaay overexplaining this? hey, cut me some slack, the puppy had me up three times during the night and then up for good at about 4:30).

Anyway, let's bust it out and have some cheesy fun, shall we? Oh yes, we shall. And no, I don't think there's any theme to this week's list although I was tempted to rhyme them all but we can save that for another time.

Mel Gibson -
Pot belly -
Pork -
New York Yankees -
March Madness -
Iraq -
Google -
April Fool's Day -
Sweet -
Career -
Economy -
Forest -
Jessica Simpson -
Enzyte Smiley Guy -
Opening Day -
Motorcycle -
Highway Patrol -
Meth lab -
Medicinal Marijuana -
Fat America -
Fast food -
Coffee -
Commercial flight -
Patriotism -
Treason -
Sedition -
Final Solution -

Now don't forget, this is the Double Word Association Week, you can either go through and do each word twice or go through the list and then treat the new list like a whole new list. Either way, I'm curious to see how well this works out.
And yeah, as before, I could just keep rolling along until the list is far too large to be of any use. But let's cap it there, wrap it up and send it packing. And I'm leaning towards a numerical Cheddar for next week, I've had a month or two to let it fester in my head and I think its almost ready to be uncorked.

There's this week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier! Go get some!
