Default House Yeast

I was listening to the Jamil show and he was talking about getting a yeast you really get to know and use that for most of your brews. I was wondering if anyone practices this method, and if so what are some of your favorite yeast?

I use 1056/WLP001 a lot, but I use a bunch of others too.

I don't know if I'd be happy putting that limitation on myself.

That's what I was wondering if this would be limiting. For example could the WLP Irish ale yeast even double as yeast to use for a pale ale?

I used Nottingham for about 10 batches straight. Now I'm moving on to S-05
