Hard Cheese

Warning, this is easily the most difficult Cheddar X yet. With that in mind, I'm planning on taking at least a week to respond to as many of the points as possible.

Because its too easy to get sucked into the negativity of the current electoral season in the good old US of A, I thought it might be an interesting exercise to sample the X-nation's ideals for various aspects of a commander-in-chief. No endorsements, no name calling, just plain what you think should be done and (if necessary) how it could be done.

I expect that this will be a tough week of the Cheddar X, It's Cheesier but then, nothing worthwhile is ever easy, is it?

So here's how I'm envisioning this. I'll lay out a bunch of typical or maybe atypical presidential platforms, take the one's you want, build yourself a platform based on what you think should be done. Articulate your position.

1. Education
2. Environment (which can be further broken down)
3. Economy
3a. Employment
3b. Deficit
3c. GNP
4. Foreign policy
4a. Nuclear proliferation
4b. Human rights violations
4c. Genocide
4d. United Nations
5. Terrorism
6. Homeland security
7. Taxation
8. Alternate energy sources
9. Healthcare
10. Social security
11. Abortion
12. Same sex marriage
13. Assault weapons or other gun control
14. Drugs
15. Big tobacco
16. Big business
17. Corporate corruption
18. Frivolous lawsuits
19. Obesity
20. Overconsumerism
21. National malaise
22. Smelly people on the subway
23. SUV's
24. Homelessness
25. Steroids in baseball

There are probably plenty of other topics to add here, if you want me to add a new topic or a subset (like breaking out the environment into more than just the one umbrella topic) then leave a comment or drop me an email (don't forget to drop the nospam) and I'll update the post.

I hope this is an interesting and worthwhile exercise. If not then let me know and I'll try not to do it again.

Dark Cheese

I was thinking that it might be interesting to explore the darker side of the cheese, the side that never sees the sun and is bitter and mean because of it. So here we go with some darker Cheddar X, It's Cheesier!

1. What was the last thing you regret saying the moment it left your lips or keyboard?
2. When was the last time you wished ill upon someone? Why?
3. What's wrong with you?
4. Who would most benefit from having sense knocked into them?
5. Who would you just most like to knock around?
6. What is the worst part of your day?

And let's slice it off, wrap it up and send it out from there.

By the way, if any Cheddar X'ians want to step into the back office and help out on the production side then drop me an Email (drop the nospam) and let me know how you'd like to help out.

Happy Cheese!

A Jug of Wine, Some Bread, Some Cheddar and Thou

That's right folks, this weeks Cheddar X, It's Cheesier is dedicated to art of romance and sensuality.

1. What's the sexiest name you've ever heard?
2. What's your idea of a romantic evening?
3. Where's the most romantic place you know?
4. What's the most romantic gesture someone's made to you?
5. What was your most romantic gesture?

And there it goes, this week's Cheddar is free, free to fly out into the great big internet. Hope you all have a lovely week. I'm just hoping the air conditioner works today.

Back to the Core Competency Cheddar

Alright, I'm trying to get the Cheddar X, It's Cheesier back on track after nearly getting derailed earlier this week.

1. Who's your favorite superhero?
2. Who's your favorite villain?
3. What was your last brush with greatness?
4. Who is the last celebrity you've seen in public?
5. What's the most important event on your horizon?
And one political question, I can't help it.
6. What did you think of Bush's speech last night?

And that's the Cheddar for this week, sorry for it being so late. And I'll start thinking about how to make it run smoother, maybe incorporate more of the Cheddar X Nation into the mix.
