Pssst! Got a sec to chat?
We are utterly thrilled when readers want to hang out and talk – whether it's amongst themselves or in response to pieces we've posted. We want Eatocracy to be a cozy, spirited online home for those who find their way here.
Consider the daily Coffee klatsch post as your VIP lounge – the primary comments thread for readers who'd like to chat about topics not related to the articles we're running. That way, everyone knows where to find each other, and each post's comments section remains on topic.
Why do birds suddenly appear every time Los Flamenons are near?
(We suspect it's because they keep jerky in their pockets, but that has yet to be conclusively proven.)
Happy Sunday! The Queen is moving slowly this morning. Someone kept me up waaaay past my bedtime last night but it was worth it. I hope you have a nice lazy Sunday afternoon. See you in the morning!
Yep,That Peyton Manning sure does cry LOUDLY doesn't he? JETS.JETS,JETS! Change his diaper Please! Ha! Have a Good Day Everyone!
I'm glad you have another team to fall back on because Lord knows nobody is going to be cheering for the Texans anytime soon.
Are you speaking of that Loser team in Houston? HA! KC is doing pretty well right now. Better than the Colis. Elvis is at ArrowHead Stadium rooting them on!
Is no one alive on Sunday? Watched a great movie last night. The Good Shephard. DeNiro Coppola project. Dang near as good as The Godfather. Terrific cast. All about the birth of the CIA. WWII to Bay of Pigs and Skull and Bones to boot! Rent it now. Fair warning: it is long. Extra large bowl of popcorn required. Really big fountain Coke. You won't be able to stop watching it even when your posterior goes numb and your kidneys rebel.
O.K. Guess I gotta turn out the lights-The Party's over. Have a Great Weekend Everybody!
Should have gone across the street to the Burger joint and you could have used Burger grease and had dinner at the same time.
Hey Girl,I gotta run. Have a Great weekend and think of some more gun questions.
I smell like a grease monkey now... had to fix the d@mn door sqeeeeeeeaaaaaakkkkkkkkk.... squueeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaakkkkkkkkkk..... and of course all we have is a POS can of grease stuff. Goody goody.
Now being said online that war records cannot be found for the shooter. Hmmmm...Interesting!
Interesting...Maybe I will peruse the internets or hit the google later on...
That said, I am out. Almost dinner time here. Enjoy the rest of the weekend all!
Have a Great weekend Brother. Talk to ya Monday.
Appreciate the advice guys! Now I want to go to the range!
So, anything fun going on this weekend?
Other than us both being psyched about a Girl that knows about guns? NO,not really!
And me being able to talk to some knowledgeable men about them is always fun too!
Want to talk about noise and recoil... My old 30-06 is a freaking mule kicker. It's fun to shoot but good god the shoulder is sore for a few days even holding it properly.
Yep,I"ve got a 30-30 that does the same thing. Only way to prevent it is padded shoulder protection! Noise-Sonic ear valves and Nascar headphones.
I started many years ago with a Belgium made Browning .9mm. The Company has been sold so many times I think the metal now comes from China so YES,Glock is the Best. Go to a good Indoor shooting range and you can rent all of the above. Just take your time until you find what you want.
You must remember lead time but O.K. Your in. Ha! I Love It!
If you let me join in y'alls target shooting it sounds like a perfect afternoon :)
I taught my bride to trap shoot last year and she LOVED it. She is still a little reluctant to try my Glock, but I am sure I can start her with a .22 or a .38. She would love the company Taze, so you're in!
I grew up with rifles and shotguns. I'm a decent shot with a pistol and I'd love to get more experience. CA sucks as far as being able to get a CCW though so if I bought one it'd be for home protection and target shooting. I have been eyeing a Glock 30 .45 for quite a while. I'd also like to get a Mossberg tactical 12ga for grins. Ah, if I was rich....
Holy guacamole Your Serious. That .45 will mess up your wrist. Try a Glock 19 .9mm,only takes 2 well placed shots if ya know what I mean. Ya gotta leave something for the coroner to look at or they get real P.O.'d.
I've actually shot it on quite a few occasions and I really liked it. It can be a little snappy but it didnt' bug me. I'm far from petite at 6'0" so I've got a bit more... how to say this... muscle than your average girl.
Still haven't decided what to get, so all the options are open. I do like Glocks and will probably stick with one for my first purchase.
I carry a Glock 30 and love it. I want to start my wife off though with something a little smaller. I just took to a .45, since it was what I had to qualify for in the service.
You guys like noise and recoil. I like accuracy and a quick end to the B.S. if it comes to that.
Hey, We are always here for ya. Vent all you want! Hell,I'll even bring the Beer and a cot if need be.
Was just listening to Obozo-nobody releasing much of anything. Fed Judge killed so this can't be spun in a very good direction.
I am curious how the Afghan war vet part will be spun. PTSD is a rough thing, but he sounds more one of the angry guy who wash out. Saw a few guys in basic (briefly) try to shoot their mouths off the same way.
I DO agree with you! Can't take mine on the truck,but any other time it's with me. Had the same thing happen in East Texas a while back too.
Hopefully he has an "accident" in short order.
Not sure if it made the news in your neck of the woods, but CO had several church shootings in recent years. Makes Miss Siagon nuts, but that is why I carry. Between me and several other guys, we usually have a half dozen or so in service most weeks. CCWs are GOOD things.
Damn,Your good. 9mth.old baby first fatality. This Boy may not have any nuts before he makes it to trial,if at all.
His myspace pics...complete with gun:
Seems pretty certifiable:
Name is Jared Loughner-A complete wacko!
The subject does not come up much on Eatocracy, but it comes up ALL THE TIME on the Denver comPost website (local excuse for a paper)
I can tell you that having lived the process, it is badly broken, but jumping the border, demanding things and yelling Si Se Puede is NOT the way to go about it. Miss Siagon and I still have to go through at least one more interview before she is final, and we started the process three years ago next month.
Also keep in mind that it took a year AFTER our wedding (in VN) to even get her here. The absolute hardest thing I ever had to do is leave my wife in an airport in April 2007. I got back there only once at Christmas, and then she arrived in Denver in March 2008. Having lived through that, I have VERY little patience for ANYONE who thinks that they deserve special rights. Get in line like everyone else.
I concur with you! I am speaking of the shooting of Congresswoman Gifford of Tucson!. Shot point blank a little while ago.
Saw the story, is it immigration related (i.e. done by an illegal)...?
That was the first thing that came to my mind, but not finding a cause yet. Trust me though, if I lived there, I would easily join the effort.
Not known at this time. 22yrs old,obviously disturbed individual. Myspace page has been taken down.
Tucson AZ. Sorry don't want you to get lost.
Sounds like we need to load up the hunting gear and head to Tuscon AZ and defend our border!
Things are good here...Just had breakfast and a matinee with a buddy, and doing a few hours at the office. Looking at snow tomorrow...
Sounds relaxing. :)
It's going phenominally bad haha. I can't handle people's BS today. And you?
Whiner-I think I'll come to the Bank just to spoil Your day! Just kidding. Everybody is in a pissy mood today,what gives?
I have no idea what is wrong with people today.
I just got chewed out AGAIN for something that
1. I did not do
2. I had no control over and
3. Someone who's not even a customer here.
Maybe they didn't like your "Buzzers"? Just shoot their ass and ask questions later.
I think that some bankers have the patience of saints...My work branch downtown gets a lot of poorer people who do not understand that fees still apply even if you know you are overdrawn...Almost seen some get semi-threatening. Cannot be an easy job...
I agree, some employees I just don't understand how they never snap. I'm usually pretty good about keeping patient with people but today it's been one button after another and I'm ready to pull my hair out! Of course it doesn't relate to the customers but I get to vent to you guys at least.
Good day all...just a few of us in today I see...How is everyone's Saturday going?
Afternoon Brother! How was the movie?
Out-freakin-standing. I think Jeff Bridges was channeling The Duke...
Curious thing is that the original is on tonight. Plan to watch it between turnovers in the Indy-NYJ game...
I heard it was good. Gonna do the Dallas run this week 'cuz of weather concerns I hope the Jets kick butt tonite!
Happy afternoon everyone! Just checking in between loads of laundry. Hope everyone has a great weekend! Time to clean the bathrooms. Don't you wish you were my shoes? I know I wish you were in my shoes....I hate cleaning bathrooms. : (
Why must the Queen clean the castle???
Don't you have some flunky to delegate this to? Perhaps you can borrow some minions from EGrin...They seemed to do ok with the lounge some days ago...
Holy Moly there's a lot more of us here on Saturday than I expected!
That"s because we don't have Bankers Hours like YOU do! Good Morning!
Banker's hours? I've been in the office since 8AM. So... not so lucky.
Sorry,speaking of the bank,I gotta run there so will be back with you shortly!
Yeah yeah yeah...
Good Morning Oh Fearless Leader. Hope You are feeling better today! Can You tell me WHY I got moderated for putting Elvis' Birthday and blue suede shoes in the same sentence? Is it a fashion problem with the shoes?
I can see your post just fine but I can see why the moderating software thought twice before posting it. Blue suede shoes are sooooo last season Richard. Having problems with the other site right now, hopefully be back up and running soon!
Is it White Shoe season already? I thought you had to wait till after Easter? As soon as I posted it I got Awaiting Moderation. Somebody must NOT be an Elvis Fan! Or maybe the thought of WD in Blue Suede shoes is too much to bear. Cost me a fortune to get 3 pairs at one time. Your picture came through very nicely my darling. You might want to check his diaper tho along with Peyton Mannings at the same time.
Here goes nothin'. Hope this works!
It Worked my BBB.
Nice picture and cute boy!! Thanks for sharing, it's nice to get some faces to go with the posts!
It's Elvis' Birthday and WD and I are wearing our Blue Suede Shoes in His Honor!
Morning all! Soooo glad it's Saturday and no work...
How is the after Dentist patient feeling this Morning?
A bit sore, but not too bad except it feels like I got punched in the cheekbone! Hubby said he did it last night because I was snoring! :)
I'm glad your feeling better. I may try that on WD yet I may not have an arm after doing it.. Bad idea.
Good morning and Happy Saturday to anyone who may be stopping by!
Mornin'. How is Saturday going for you?
Good Morning,What's up?
Colts Suck,cough,cough-Good Morning Your Highness! Your turn.
No no no... I had to run home to pick up sad cat...
Uh oh....why do I feel like I'm sitting outside the principals office?
Have a Great weekend. Till Monday then.
WD has been putting on the weight due to the holidays and swimsuit season is just around the corner. Been making her walk more and she hates it.
heh! i cant take mine for enough walks...she wears me out! WD sounds like my boy.. he'd rather just sit around and enjoy food. too bad he cant share his metabolism with WD...he eats like a horse and he still needs to gain some pounds.
whoohoo! i get to leave now! till monday... have a good weekend! :)
She is now 10 years old,just a tad slower but she always has my back!
aww! those are the best kind. when i bought my house i inherited a dog from the prev owner...he just left him there. he was a germ shepherd/lab mix. still the best darn dog i ever got to have the pleasure of knowing... i got to enjoy him for 3 years. he always watched out for me. :)
what does WD stand for?? i keep forgetting to ask.... :)
Wonder Dog! It's a Wonder that she is still alive. I Kid. She's my best friend and have had her since she was 7 weeks old.
love it!! :) theyre so cute and adorable when they're 7 weeks old...
I am shutting down. Talk to y'all later!
gnite. have a great weekend!
how is everyone this late in the day? i'm finally surfacing a little bit... whew!
Having breakfast and seeing "True Grit" with a buddy of mine, then into the office for some afternoon work. I am slammed with year end stuff and cannot do it all from home, you know.
You on the road this weekend?
Well my Brother,what's yor plans for the weekend?
I am out as well. May check in later, but then again, maybe not. Be well all!
It is time for me leave my friends. Have a great weekend! Hasta la later!
Just a warning, never try to verify facts being bandied about by crazies promoting cannibalism to spite people willing to eat horse, especially on sites like wikipedia. I don't think I'll ever be able to eat anything ever again. shudders uncrontrollably
And with that I'm off to try to get said disturbing images out of my mind. Have good, disturbing-image-free weekends, mis chums. oh, ugh, chum. My poor, evil brain.
numbness is officially wearing off, time for some happy drugs and a brewski, have a good one all!
MAKE SURE YOU CAN DRINK ON THOSE MEDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't want to see you hurt yourself there darlin'...best check with your doctor or pharmacist...
If any of your pain meds contain Tylenol (including Norco, Percocet, Darvon, Darvocet, Roxycodone) DO NOT drink alcohol. That'll be a double whammy to your liver and big trouble for you. Liver failure is not pretty.
What is Roxycodone? Any good?
thanks for the info, just a couple of ibuprofen for now and still sipping the ice water...not in a mood to partake yet!
Yeah, it's pretty decent and I've heard it has a good street value. It's a brand name for oxycodone.
Yuck...I won't touch that stuff. I'll pop a vicodin every once in a while but that's about it.
HAHA I get that feeling. Sometimes I wonder about people.
My sad kitty goes to a new home tonight, about the only positive for this day!
I dropped by the horse thread....don't even have the heart to leave snide comments after my day today.
Why is your kitty sad?
She's my ex bf's cat. He left her with me over a year ago when he split, and she's been really iffy with me since then. When I moved to my new house, her and my dog stopped getting along, and it's made her absolutely miserable. The dog sees her as a toy to chase, and she's not OK with that. So she's going to an older lady with no other pets who absolutely spoils her animals rotten. It's a win win situation.
Good stuff. Sad kitties are no fun.
How is MY review coming?....you are doing a review for me, right?!?
Muhahaha... it's in the works!
What does that have to do with telling anyone else about my problem last night?
Dinner has been in the oven slow cooking since noon but it smells like it is burning @ 200 degrees now what chef ?
I think mine is melting too :( The client I had today really pushed by BPP (brain processing power) to the max.
