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.

That coffee and salt thing that is happening in the picture up top? Might have been before your time (maybe not you, Truth), but we tried that because someone in the comments suggested it. We love you THAT MUCH.

    You may have to pour her into bed, but she'll be fine. Don't forget to strap her down so she doesn't float away in her sleep!

    Ain't got no trouble in my life
    No foolish dream to make me cry
    I'm never frightened or worried
    I know I'll always get by

    I heat up, I cool down
    When somethin' gets in my way I go 'round it
    Don't let life get me down
    Gonna take it the way that I found it

    I've got the music in me
    I've got the music in me
    I've got the music in me
    Yea
    I've got the music in me
    I've got the music in me
    I've got the music in me

    Feel funky, feel good
    Gonna tell ya I'm in the neighborhood
    Gonna fly like a bird on a wing
    Hold onto your hat honey
    Sing, sing
    I've got the music in me
    I've got the music in me
    I've got the music, pretty music
    I've got the music in me
