You do know that the first thing that will happen is that people who used to talk to you no longer will?
You will become a pariah, and your green username will serve to remind anyone who has forgotten...
If we were not clever enough to not annoy you we would be constantly sending you PMs saying "smöris" and the like. :-)

As this seems to have become the de facto off-topic topic, I will use it for this:
Happy holidays, bubbanauts!

I'm on my 5th Xmas Edam this year, and I have managed to peal two substantial bits of skin off my left hand with the cheese slicer trying to break into the fuckers' hard outer skin so far:

Xmas cheers to all of you!

Ouch...

I am using a sharp kitchen knife to put a slice around the top of the red wax area, and then I peel it off. But on the other hand - I can almost imagine how this procedure could harm your health, and the rest of the hand (or leg...)

Merry Christmas! 8)

I have carefully edited this pic with the eminent photo-editing software gpaint 0.3.3 in order to post a pre-emptive happy-new-year pic while I still have my fingers.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, CAMPERS!

Funny but I never saw Edam cheese with a red outer skin and I'm only 50km away from Edam =)

Well, it is a pain to get rid of, but it is obviously a trade benefit to identify the trademark abroad.

It had a red outer skin when I lived in the UK as well, but unfortunately it was not matured there, so it is not a sign of a matured Edam as I first thought.

And, I saw the red skin in shops in Utrecht when I lived there too.
Perhaps you are so close to the source, they don't even bother with the "touristy" versions where you live?

could be, could be. There's not that many tourist places in Utrecht compared to amsterdam though. I'll go and do a cheese-check tomorrow

Oh, I disagree!
Utrecht is a university town, full of foreign students. There are also a lot of international companies who employ foreign staff for their call-centres (like me at the time).
And as a foreigner I find Utrecht absolutely lovely, unlike Amsterdam which I think is a pit...

I also believe Utrecht is the connecting point of all railroads in the Netherlands, so it must see tons of people just passing by, waiting for the next train.

I agree it's international, but not that it's touristy. I've lived or worked in Utrecht for 17 years and I wouldn't know but one shop in the center that is filled with dorky tourist presents (windmills, wooden shoes etc)
