Funny you mention not giving a golly, about 3 years after THAT, I was in town getting the grandparents home ready for sale, stopped in for chips, and a manager very angrily told me I needed to cover a shift (The same reason I quit).

I looked her in the eye and asked "When was the last time I was on the schedule?" el-stare-o-blank-o. It's like a nightmarish hellscape, working in a supermarket.

I still don't get why we went through such extensive training when our actual bosses gave so few naffs.

Did you ever have Stinking Bishop?  They had a cheese plate at the National Gallery and that was on the list of cheeses there.  We found it funny but not funny enough to order.  I think we went with strawberries instead. 

I got some more Madrigal (swiss) and some Cotswolds Double Gloucester at Trader Joe's today.  The Madrigal was a pale ghost of cheese compared with the P'tit Basque, but it's a great deal cheaper and made with cow's milk.  I don't know what it is about sheep milk, but it makes such delicious cheese.  We like to grate pecorino romano on our pasta & prefer it to parmesan.  Also, feta can be magical.

Never heard of it either. I try to stay away from processed cheeses.

heh, the review I was reading says that it's virtually nonexistent outside of St. Louis.

Thank God for that.  I've been to St. Louis a few times.  It has some lovely museums and nice neighborhoods with some local restaurants that aren't bad.  It's not a place I normally associate with good pizza.  If your main concern in eating pizza is a clean bite, then you deserve whatever cheese the proprietor thinks will satisfy that.  Good food is messy.
