Hard and crumbly or smooth and sliceable?

Both? Probably smooth and sliceable by weight, but I like most cheese that are firmer than soft.

Depends on the type of cheese. Smooth and slice-able Parmigiano Reggiano doesn't make sense. Extra sharp cheddar tends to be slightly more crumbly than mild. Doesn't matter as long as it tastes good.

Not an hour ago I ate an English muffin, toasted, with melted fresh mozzarella, and aged asiago and parmesan on it. I reject the notion that a choice is necessary, or desirable.

perhaps, but i only buy cheese about once per year, so when i do i splurge
Fair enough. I don't think there's been a time in the past year that I didn't have a block of 2 year aged cheddar in my fridge, I think one block lasts me about two months.
I love cheese :D

Poor brianmanahan is going to be stuck in an apartment until he can learn to love the curd.

lol i've been looking at houses on zillow all afternoon

they're still (relatively) crazy expensive in my area though, so i just look. same prices as last year with interest rates %5 higher.

my problem is i want something that's walkable, but also where i don't have to live close to anyone

You might have to settle for "bikable" then :p

I've actually been seeing houses where they reduce the price on the listing over the last few months around here, like down from $525k to $500k, or $450k to $400k. Of course, four years ago they would have been asking $100-150k less, too.

Nothing beats a few pieces of parmigiano reggiano dipped in some aged balsamic vinegar.
