Say Brother, Can You Spare a Little Cheese?

That's right, intrepid Cheddarians, this week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier is about charity and holidays. Mostly.

1. What do you do with your spare change?
2. What prompted you to give some money to a stranger recently? If you have given money to a stranger recently, of course.
3. What charities do you support and why?
4. What's the kindest thing a stranger has done for you?
5. Do you wish people a "Merry Christmas", "Happy Holidays", "Seasons Greetings" or something else? Why did you choose it?
6. What's your most memorable moment of 2004 online? Offline?
7. What is your hope for 2005?

I hope everyone has a great holiday break. I will see you all in the new year. I hope 2005 is as fun and interesting as 2004 has been.

Happy Cheddar X to you all and to all a good night!

Retro X: Breakdown

This week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier is a trip down memory lane. It'll be a shorter trip for some and a longer trip for others but I hope the sights along the way are worth the trip.

Within the time period of High School:
5 People you wish you were still close to
4 Places you used to frequent
3 Classes you loathed
2 Teachers who made a difference
1 Moment to relive or erase.

Well that was kind of fun to put together. I hope its fun to take part in.

I should also note that the Cheddar X Bloglet subscription is going to be changing to NotifyList. Bloglet keeps grabbing drafts and publishing them and that's just completely unacceptable. So, sorry to Bloglet subscibers but things'll be changing again.

Have a happy and cheesy weekend!

It's Beginning to Look Alot like Cheddar X-Mas

More holiday inspired Cheddar X, It's Cheesier fun. Moving into the holiday season, I'm always curious about what people like and dislike about Christmas.

1. What do you like most about Christmas?
2. How have your Christmas perceptions changed over time?
3. Is it truly better to give than to receive?
4. What's your all time favorite Christmas present?
5. What gift are you most proud of giving to someone else?

Also, a couple of news thingies. Everyone say hi to Barb from All About Me(mes), she's the newest member of the cult Cheddar X. She also brought the broken subscription issue to my attention and I've fixed it on Bloglet so daily mailers should be functioning properly again.

I have also finally gotten around to buying the rights to and will be slowly getting the new destination into shape over the next couple of weeks. If you come by here and the site's gone then you can either try or swing by Intellectual Poison and I'll have the updated link there.

And, in the spirit of the season, I'd like to pass along Any Soldier, its a site that gets you in touch with troops in Iraq. You can send them a care package or letters or whatever. Its not that I support the war, I don't. But I do support the kids that are in that war and any taste of home that we can send them would be incredibly appreciated.

Traditional Cheese

Well, we must really be making headway, the Cheddar X, It's Cheesier has its own tiny little troll. Oh boy. Shame he's not very interesting though.

Anyway, this week's Cheese is about traditions and maybe some foreshadowing about 2005 resolutions and whatever. You can, as always, respond in the form of poetry if it makes you happy.

1. What holiday traditions mean the most to you?
2. What mean the least to you?
3. If you could create a new tradition, what would it be and why?
4. With 2004 drawing to a close, how would you grade yourself on your resolutions from last year?
5. What are you planning to resolve to do in 2005?

Not a big week this time around, just a few questions. And yes, I'm still working on getting the Cheddar X moved to better looking and more interactive digs. Anyone want to vollunteer some design aid? Drop me a note.

And that's the Cheddar for this week. Cheers!
