No matter how hard you work and how big a celebrity you become, you’ll never be as famous as cheese. That’s what they say on TikTok, anyway.
I would think twice about a cheese plate, but wouldn’t hesitate over cookies. This is called the Bake Sale effect. Cookies could be made in somebody’s bathroom on a radiator, and I would still eat them. And yes, that is one fine looking cheese platter.
Another fun story. It is impressive to entertain by talking about cheese. Love the movie references throughout. Google is really losing its edge if those are the famous people of the world...yikes. The plate itself was a letdown. There was a lot of everythinig but cheese. Reminds me of when people bring a charcuterie plate. If they are loyal to the meaning they should be slaughterhouse and smokehouse experts. Your plate is beautiful. Lots of flowers and sage even. It seems when people want a cheese plate or a charcuterie plate, they really want a plate with an assortment of cold stuff. I was glad when you went around to the guesthouse that Kato Kaelin was not around.
HOW DID YOU NOT ADD SOME COOKIES TO YOUR ORDER?!?!
Love cheese, even reading about it. Love your Monterey Jack and were blessed in Britain with many varieties, my favorites being; Cheshire (from Cheshire), Lancashire (from Lancashire), Garstang Blue (from ... well you get the idea), Caerphilly, Dunlop (not recycled tires) and Stinking Bishop (from ... your guess is as good as mine). ..Oliver B Sudden
I bought underground candles during COVID. I once had a black market cronut delivered to me in Washington Square Park ($25). Have also purchased black market beef stew. So underground cheese why not.
I met him (Kato) a few years ago . He's connected with a local radio host. Normal guy who got caught in a shitstorm
"... fear of a cheese deal gone wrong." You are certifiably nuts. And I mean that in a good way. Sharron at LEAVES
I’m not a big cheese guy, but once I picked up a multi-tiered cake for my nephew’s birthday party from a baker on IG. Looked WAY more expensive than it was and tasted great. It’s so impressive what folks are making out of their homes!
I came here because of your milestone post from Feb. 19., started reading the cheese story with caution, developed a taste for it 'in the presence of a Cheesus, Lord of Lactose', and you finally got me braying with uncontrollable laughter with your line: '...who was the first American president to become more popular than feta'. The choice of the verb that describes my laughter is not accidental, as I'm in the middle of writing a story about donkeys for Monday.
Cheese me up! That’s a. Cheeselock….. in fact, you getting to be a big cheese now, Mr E!
The weirdest thing I bought off of social media:
I recently drove to an unfamiliar area to procure illegal cat medication. Apparently the treatment for FIP (which is fatal and caused by a coronavirus) is being pursued as a human COVID treatment so the only way to procure the cat version is through underground Facebook networks of fellow cat ladies. My cat started having seizures and I panicked, and ultimately ended up on the road to finding these meds. I found myself on a dark cul-de-sac in Seal Beach buying the first of what would be 90 days of treatment from some people who may have been sick with human COVID at the time of the transaction.
I eventually snapped out of my initial panic state, and took the kitty to a neurologist who advised that we wait to see if his disease progressed. If not, then he has epilepsy (super rare in cats), and if the seizures got worse then start the illegal meds (which she said do work). It has been 6 months and he's stable. The full treatment would have been 10 grand (!!!!) but I would sell a kidney for my pets.
I do, however, have about $2000 in illegal cat meds if you know anyone who is interested?
That cheese plate looks hela gourgous!
How much did you pay for the plate?
Oh so many thoughts here. First, that’s a charcuterie tray, not a cheese plate. There’s more meat and other stuff on there than cheese￼.
Second, I once bought ice cream under a similar circumstance. The sky is running an ice cream business from his house.￼ It was similarly weird driving into a neighborhood and pulling up into the driveway￼. Very awkward. If there had been any friction in that transaction, much like the Katie, cookie situation, I would’ve bailed.￼￼
Third, did you ever figure out what the whole cookies thing was all about? Do they actually make cookies as well?￼
Coming in knowing who Dan Avidan was made me question how much of my screen time I've spent spectating flamewars. I'm not going to change my behavior, but at least it got me thinking. Great update!
As a fan of cheese and wordplay (cheeseplay?), I think you would enjoy my friend Rich’s Instagram feed.
