Bye, Toast. Please think of me when you turn over a US$10 bill and it says "WHO LIVES, WHO DIES, WHO TELLS YOUR STORY" in block letters, and know that it's a secret coded message from me meaning "You are awesome, and don't let anyone tell you different." XOXO

Cheese lasts a LOT longer than you might expect if you treat it well. To store, wrap enthusiastically in parchment and loosely in plastic -- an unsealed plastic bag works well -- then store in the back of the fridge where it's coldest. Bring to room temperature before serving for the best flavor. And if it develops a "bloom" of mold despite your best efforts, just scrape off the mold and enjoy the delicious cheese underneath.

As to your actual question: cheese party! Ask everyone to bring something -- great crackers, organic champagne grapes, fancy quince paste (SO GOOD with Manchego), fancy ham, sparking wine, port -- and go to town.

The marriage has lasted many years, so I think it's OK to tell you about the time the bride's father kicked off the reception by congratulating the happy couple and then breaking down who had paid for what, so his holy roller buddies knew that he and the missus had not sullied their immortal souls by spending one red cent on demon rum or, in this case, watery American beer. (For the record, I have no problem with teetotalers, just with self-righteous, judgmental nut jobs making their children look as though they're praying to an altogether different deity to make the floor open up.) Also, this went down in a halfheartedly decorated firehouse rec room, which I'm given to understand is a whole other redneck-culture touchstone.

control + w closes the tab you're in unless it's the only open tab, in which case it closes the browser. Feel better!

Did anyone else who wasn't paying particularly close attention think that "Bucky" was Bucky from "Nashville"?

SERIOUSLY. I glanced quickly at that photo yesterday and reflexively thought, "When did Frank Sinatra play a part he had to be blond for"?
