OK, so we went to our local Chinese for dinner tonight, where we are regulars (to put it mildly). I can't remember how, but we got to talking about cheese, and I mentioned that after getting the results of my cholesterol test earlier on (utterly, boringly normal), I'd been considering a special cheese-eating celebration.
Bless 'em, they went out and _bought_ some Edam* and sliced it up and presented it all prettily for me, along with a brandy.
There are damn good reasons why we go there a lot ;)
* I suspect that was all the local convenience store had to offer...
