Super 7 Cheddar X

We got some fresh Cheddar X, It's Cheesier ready for you.

This is making the meme rounds right now and I thought I'd grab it before it became completely passe to do. And I added one more to make it a 7x7 and no more forwarding it to 7 people like a new age chain letter.

7 things you plan to do before you die:
7 things you can do:
7 things you cannot do:
7 things you never thought you'd do:
7 things that attract you to other people:
7 things that you say most often:
7 celebrity crushes:

Shamelessly lifted from Flower in the Breeze who had it tagged to her.
Happy Cheddaring!

Nothing But Static on Channel X

Tawdry, trite and trivial is a good way to sum up this week/month's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier. We at the Cheddar X underground bunker have been having a ball with Tivo'ing stupid moments, rewinding them to watch them again and again and again. Like Jay Payton's great catch before he slammed into the wall last week at the A's game in the Coliseum. Or watching Ken Shamrock (one of the Ultimate Fighters) come off the fence in the Octogan to bring his knee into his opponent's chin and end the fight in one single quick movement (I loved watching Shaq react to the hit!).

This X is all about the idiot box.

1. What do you watch most?
2. What would you be embarassed to be caught watching even though you do watch it?
3. Write yourself into a tv show.
4. Replace someone in a tv show.
5. Who would you like to see out of tvland forever?
6. Who would you like to see back?
7. Entertainment or information?
8. What makes for a good viewing experience for you?
9. Have you ever had a great idea for a special niche cable channel (like the Golf Channel or Home and Garden TV)?
10. What was your favorite show when you were a kid?
11. Most memorable moment of television?
12. Most memorable moment you'd just as soon forget?
13. What would you like to see again?

That's about all I've got, actually that's not wholly true, I've got more but its not any good so I'll spare you all.

Happy Cheddaring to you all.

Friday, July 1


Yep, its time to bust out a new Cheddar X, It's Cheesier and this time, I'm going back into the drafts that have never made it to the blog and will compile, collide and collude this latest episode of the Cheddar X. Dig in.

1. How many times a day do you wash your hands?
2. How often do you get the flu that's going around?
3. How often are you really "sick" when you take a sick day?
4. Who would you like to see in a cage match?
5. Name 3 things you absolutely love.
6. If you had to give 2 of them up which would they be (and why)?
7. Name 3 things you absolutely loathe.
8. What is your all time favorite memory EVER?
9. What is the one thing that happened in high school that would make you avoid your class reunion?
10. What is your dream job, no matter how untrained you might be or unrealistic and bizarre it might be?
11. If you could write yourself into any tv show, which show and how would you do it?
12. If you could replace anyone on a tv show, who would you choose to replace on what show and why?

Hmm, a bit of this, some of that and whammo, slammo, we've got Cheese! Yippy-ki-yah!

Breezy Cheesy

Its been a little while since we put out a fresh plate of the Cheddar X, It's Cheesier and its time to roll one out.

The theme this time around shall be weather related stuff. Ready? Hold on. Here we go.

1. What's your favorite kind of weather?
2. Describe the worst storm you can remember?
3. How much of a factor was the climate in choosing where you would live?
4. Favorite rainy day activity?
5. Would you rather have wind and rain or wind and snow?
6. Earthquake or hurricane?
7. Morning or night?

And that is going to have to do it. I don't have the time or the brain cycles for anything more. If any of you want to guest host a Cheddar X, drop me a line. As it is, I will very likely be dropping back to a once a month Cheddar X, at least until things settle down.

Easy TV Cheese

Okay, last week was a blur and there was no cheese, this week has been a grind and the cheese nearly escaped me again. But no, I had an inspired moment and We. Have. Cheese!

This week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier is all about your tv viewing. If you're not a tv person (like my brother) you can just go and sit and play with this lump of clay.

Enough jibber jabber, let's get to the cheese!

1. Who's your favorite talk show host?
2. Late night talk show?
3. What's your favorite drama?
4. Favorite comedy?
5. Least favorite show or genre?
6. Most unlikely show you like?
7. Most unlikely show you thought you'd like but really hate?
8. Worst reality show?
9. Best reality show (if it exists)?
10. Best tv innovation?
11. Who's the hottest person on tv (take that as you will, sexiest, most famous, whatever)?
12. Who's got a face for radio?
13. What major news channel, if any, do you watch?
14. Bill O'Reilly. Thoughts?

Dang, I could keep going and going and going but 14 is more than plenty for this week. This cheese is ready to be wrapped, slapped and trapped! Hoorah!

Beached Cheese

Straight from the new Cheddar X Beachouse, it is this week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier and I don't think there's any real theme here, maybe water but maybe not.

1. What would you name your boat?
2. What's your "go to" joke?
3. What do the words "family vacation" evoke in you?
4. What is the most infectious song you know right now (that song you can't get out of your head once it starts going in there)?
5. Are you safer now than you were five years ago?
6. So, how about the new Pope, better than the old Pope, worse or just more of the same?

Alrighty, sort of a hodge podge. But its better than nothing, eh? I hope so.

Happy Cheesing to you all and to all a good cheese.

Sorry, No Cheese This Week

Things have been mad busy of late and I really haven't had a moment to do the Cheddar X, It's Cheesier but I am about to be on vacation so there will be extra Cheese next week.

Instead of questions though, how about a caption contest?

Fearsome Cheese

Cheese and wine are a good mix, creating this week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier and being drunk? Maybe not the greatest mix but I do have to say that these questions return to those halcyon days of randomness from wayback in the beginning.

What are you least likely to do?
Who's life is better than yours and what makes it so great?
What does "How ya doing?" really mean?
Why would someone say something as stupid as "Does a bear shit in the woods?"?
Would you rather be super strong or super smart? Would you trade that to be able to fly?
When wheels spin, why do they look like they're going backwards?
What kind of a person would say "Well, you can't get there from here."?
Does something that smells good attract you more quickly than something that looks good?
Complete this sentence: Hoo-doggy, I tell you what.......

Well, it was fun writing them. It'll remain to be seen if its fun answering them.

Spring Cheese!

Time to pack away the thick wool sweaters and bust out the bikinis and sunscreen! Spring is springing all across the country. Baseball's just around the corner and we have, out here on the coast, officially entered beach season for reals now. This week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier is all about Spring. Dig in and get yourself some!

1. What excites you most about springtime?
2. What is a suresign that spring has finally sprung?
3. Do you have any spring rituals?
4. What are you least anticipating this spring?
5. What do the words "Batter Up" evoke in you?

That should cover us for this Cheddar X! Have a great weekend and get out and enjoy your world!

Dude, Where's My Cheddar?

Yes, its been a little while and I should feel guilty but I've been a wee bit busy of late so let's just pretend last week was an anamoly or something. And let's hit up this week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier

1. When did you last get yourself good and lost?
2. Did you stop and ask for directions or just drive until you found someplace you knew?
3. How far out of your way have you gone because you didn't want to stop for directions?
4. What's the best place, person or thing you've found while lost?
5. Do you ever get yourself lost on purpose, just so you can find your way home?
6. When was the last time you were lost in the woods?

And a BAM, there we go. Time to cut this Cheese and spread it all around.

Friday Cheese

I had intentioned on getting this week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier taken care of over the weekend so I could be all footloose and fancy-free (what does that mean, anyway?).

But no, I got too busy, too distracted and then some. So here we are now, Friday morning and a Cheddar X still in the hopper. So let's get right to it. How about a Current Events Cheddar X?

1. What's been the most surprising piece of news in the last month?
2. What is the best and most uplifting story you've read recently?
3. Where do you get most of your news from?
4. What do you think of this week's resignation of Dan Rather?
5. What standards do you think bloggers need to be held to in terms of reporting honestly and as factually as possible?
6. What about blogs being written by media outlets?
7. What's wrong with the news?

Hmm, well that sort of took a left turn midway through so I'm not really quite sure where we ended up. But that's alright, I like the questions anyway though I'll freely admit to being less than enthused about the Dan Rather one, I'm just curious as to what others thought of it.

And that's the cheese for this week!

Shine On You Crazy Cheddar X

Alright, this week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier theme is live music. Sound like fun? Alright then, here we go.

1. What was your first concert?
2. What was your first concert you were "dying" to go to?
3. What was your first album?
4. What was the last concert you went to?
5. Who would you most like to see in concert (alive or dead)?
6. Where is the best place you've seen a show?

There now, that didn't hurt too much at all.

Wordsmith Cheddar X

In further honor of the passing of Hunter S. Thompson, I'm going to take the Cheddar X, It's Cheesier deep into wordsmithing territory and delve where scary words dwell. Maybe not but that sounded cool to write.

1. What word or words do you just love?
2. What word or words make you want to tear your hair and run up and down the street with your fingers in your ears going "Lalalalalalalala"?
3. What words do people commonly misuse that make you mad/crazy?
4. What's the prettiest word you know?
5. What word sounds like what it means?
6. What word or words just make no sense? (I.e., a word like "whatsoever" is a pretty bizarre word when you look at it).
7. What words soothe you?

That was kind of fun, I don't imagine it will easier on the backside when I get to answering these but writing them out was dandy!

Happy Cheesing, everyone.

Cheddary Movie X

It can't be! No, it can be and it is. The return of internally generated Cheddar X, It's Cheesier questions. And this week, we're doing movies.

1. What was the last great movie you saw?
2. What made it great?
3. What was the last terrible movie you saw?
4. What movie are you most looking forward to in the next year?
5. What classic would you like to see remade and who would you choose to star in it?
6. What remake of a classic blasphemes the original?

8. Who's the trashiest star?
9. Who's got the biggest ego?

Nine, how's that for this week? Good? Good. I hope so. I'm ready to go and take a nap.

Spend Your Cheese X

This may or may not work out but I wanted to try something a little different for this week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier (aside from stealing questions from other spots). This week's X is about the best way to spend a given sum of cash.

What's the best way to spend?

Fifty cents
A dollar
Five dollars
Twenty dollars
One hundred dollars
One thousand dollars
One million dollars
One hundred million dollars

And that should cover this week's Cheddar X nicely. I'm curious as to how it will work out.

More Lifted Cheese

Because I've learned that stealing is cool if you don't call it stealing, this week's Cheddar X, It's Cheesier is flattery for the genius who came up with this magnificent questions that I found over on the Glory Road.

First, get in your wayback time machine and return to your high schools, got your long hair? Got your comb in your back pocket? Got your pack of cigs to stick to the man with? Good, let's proceed then.

What were your three favorite bands?
What was your favorite outfit?
What was up with your hair?
Who were your friends?
What did you do after school?
What did you do in your Summers?
Did you take the bus?
Who did you have a crush on?
Did you fight with your parents?
Who did you have a celebrity crush on?
Did you smoke cigarettes?
Did you lug all of your books around in your backpack all day because you were too nervous to find your locker?
Did you go to prom?
Where did you think you'd be at the age you are now?

Some are quite similar to questions that have already graced the cheese. But hey, repetition is good for you, there's a quote I've got about that.

Anyway, have fun with the Cheese. I promise that next week will see a return to real questions that I actually came up with on my own and didn't have to resort to flattery and plagiarism (hmm, flagiarism? plattery? nah).

Happy Cheesing, folks!

Tardy Cheese, No Note

This week's (and I guess last week's since there was no last week's) Cheddar X, It's Cheesier has been shamelessly lifted from Jennifer's History and Stuff. Why? Because I'm too busy these days.

Name a guilty pleasure.
If you had two weeks of free time with no responsibilities and no cash-flow issues, what would you do?
What do you see when you look in the mirror?
What do you think of Dan Rather?
If you could go back in time and visit any one day in history, which day would you choose?

A couple of notes, NotifyList hadn't worked at all so its been deleted. I'm recommending using Bloglines as a notification service but am more than happy to continue the email reminders. If you want to be added, let me know. I'll also add you to the roll call on the right there.

Happy Cheddaring!

[Update: There's a new feature at Cheddarland, its the post rating dealie-bopper thing to the right of the permalink in the footer. If a week's questions suck then I'd like to know and if a week's questions were good then that's just peachy too.

I just tried it out and it, unfortunately, requires a registration with NewsGator. So maybe its not quite as useful as I'd hoped.]

Instant Cheddar

Okay, speed drill. I'm late, I've been busy, its time to throw down a fast and potentially ugly Cheddar X, It's Cheesier.

Who did you dream of last?
What do you want a picture of?
Where did you want to go?
When will you grow up?
Why do people expect life to be fair?
How much can you stand?

Bam, shortest cheese ever. What's the symbol for screeching tires?

3. What cartoon would you go live in for a week or a month?
4. What song have you been listening to alot? (please not Christmas music!)
5. What are you doing or have done in response to the tsunami?

Bam, that'll cover this X for this week. New fun up next week. Maybe haiku word associations?

New Year's X

Its the first of the new year and its about time to get to the Cheddar X, It's Cheesier out and then get back to bed.

1. How do you celebrate the ringing in of the New Year?
2. How would you rate 2004 on a scale of 1-10?
3. What stands out as the single biggest moment for you?

Now it should be back to bed but I'm going to go play with my new toy.
