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.

Here is a thing not to give someone whose respect you'd like: "processed American cheese food with gouda-like flavor." Just...don't.

    Good afternoon darling Klatshers! Slice and dice is scheduled mid-April, and I'm schlepping myself around in a removable cast for time being. Whee. Good news is he's done two of these recently and both are at 100% at 6 months, so there's a light at the end of the tunnel!

    I agree. I paid $160.00 for two tickets to the Nascar race in Ft.Worth,which wasn't bad. Good seats as they were coming out of the pits. Then I started adding up the ear protection,parking, food and so on. Dropped a $1000.00 that Sunday.

      yep. nothing like spending vacation funds to do something in your hometown. the parking at the chiefs games is up to $25 now... but we do a lot of tailgating so that helps with the food costs. but if you want a beer or a hot chocolate you've gotta have a $20 in your pocket for every one. yeesh!

    5 fave things for when the weather is warmer in no particular order: (because of my allergies, I will skip spring and go straight to summer when I can come out of my bubble again)

    1) Leaving the windows open at night
    2) Swimming and relaxing in/on beaches, pools, rivers, and lakes.
    3) Laying out in the park with a good book.

      If HH = happy hour AND you want alcohol, then, sadly no. Unless there's some mint in your breakfast buffet that isn't really mint and you partake of that. I'm pretty sure it's sugar-free.

      Wrong again, Richard. If you remember correctly, the day that this alleged tie took place on was preceded by two days in which I won...again. Do you not remember the forced seranading that took place or the parade that commenced to mark the occasions? AleeD- Richard is the elder statesman of our group so please excuse his momentary memory lapses. He and I are also best friendsies.

        If I remember correctly we were singing with you on our shoulders and parading you toward the bathroom for a Royal Flush! Damn good memory!

    I say that because I would love to go, but have never been. I also have never been to the fair, but I hear they are fun. Speaking of that area, I really want to go to Dinosaur World.

      I went there with my family as a leeeeetle gurl! I'm jonesin' to go to Fantasy of Flight in Polk City.

      Asking gently, why haven't you been to either the Fair or the Stbry Fest?

        I haven't been to a fair ever, for personal reasons that came from a traumatizing event that happened to my mom when she was little (too personal to go into), so we were never allowed to go. I haven't been to the Strawberry Fest because I never remember when it takes place, and I always miss it. :) I went to Weeki Wachi Springs last year, though, and it was AWESOME!

        It's not my dog, it belongs to the receptionist from the office next door. I wish I could bring my dogs to work, as well.

    Oh, a couple of otehr tidbits for your information.
    Kat and I went to the same college, though her for Grad school and me for undergrad. The irony to this fact is that I am ultra conservative, and Kat, well, let's just say, is not. (but I love her all the same)...

    Oh, and we used to have a contest relating to the 5@5 thread where we used to compete to see who could be the first to say if we would/would not "hit it" based on the attractiveness of the person being interviewed. We discontinued this contest at Kat's request after whe took us to the virtual principal's office. I was the last official winner of the contest before we ended it.

      Oh, another couple of thing...We posted pics on here last month, and consensus was that I look like Bobby Flay, so if any references are made, that is where it comes from...And if I make any references to "Miss Saigon", I mean my wife. She is a Vietnamese national. And an illegal immigrant as of yesterday, but that is another story.

      And my local radio station does three song sets during lunch. I just heard "Scarlet Begonias", "Playing in the Band" followed by "The Wheel"...I am in freakin heaven...!

        5@5 started as so many things here do, kind of spontaneously. I often think that this blog is a great study on human group behaviour. One day, someone attractive was featured and one of the early regulard (I think it was JDizz) made a comment to the tune of "I'd like to hit that", and it caught on. We were later asked to quit it, as Kat would not be able to get people to interview if doing so meant they had to subject themselves to that sort of tomfoolery. Point taken, so we stopped.

        Other odd little customs we have here are my posting the word of the day each morning (may as well learn some vocab while goofing off), and the fact that Evil Grin is working on a plot to achieve world domination. His minions do his bidding for him, but can also be loaned out for odd jobs. In December, they assisted with my year end filing.

        Oh, and the last 5@5 was a tie between QOE and RHead. I was the last single winner. Thanks for the clarification bro!

      Excuse me? You were the what? Honeychild, I think you must be going senile in your old age. We all know who won the last contest and it wasn't you. It wasn't Richard either. I believe the winner was a charming and beautiful blonde from Indiana named....ME!

      • Truth@AlleeD

        it was a different person being interviewed each day. If the woman was pretty, the guys would say "I'd hit that" if it was a guy, then the women would. It was childish and sexist, so naturally it caught on like wildfire here...
