I thoroughly dislike blue cheese (however their Toma is AWESOME), but I am so glad to see food brought back to Thursday. Seasons have changed, woohoo

I would not be as rude, but I feel two questions are being answered badly, so I will rephrase.
1) how is it shipped - as in in what container and how fast? Is it in a Styrofoam container with a freezer pack or something? I'd be shipping to FL where it's still quite hot. So what container and how fast it will get here are important decision making facts.
2) I understand wrapping it in new parchment etc to store it but HOW LONG WILL IT KEEP if we do this? If I buy 3lbs of blue cheese and I do as you say to store it, how long will it be good to eat? (think shelf life)
Thank you for your help on these questions!

So, what you're saying is this will be coming up again on wine.woot in November as well? As much as I love this deal (where I live Whole Foods wants pushing $19 a pound), I've been shelling out mucho dinero left & right in home remodeling costs. Knowing I can catch this again next month would be such comfort. I love this stuff.
As to the storage bag, it sounds like the best thing to use for the parchment wrapped cheese is Ziploc Fresh Produce bags. Keeps stuff not too dry, not too moist.
Wine may not heal all things, but it sure will make you feel a whole lot better.
