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.
He's not watching now, he is doing laundry, changing the bed sheets, putting away the clean dishes, his Sunday chores!! :) I'm off for now, have a great day if I don't stop by later.
You both enjoy the day. :))
Oh, and that damn racoon came back yesterday morning and tore up the grass/dirt right outside my office window...but at least he didn't mutilate anything this time! Hubs was reading Parade magazine this morning about the differences between dogs and cats...said a dog will chase a squirrel around the yard for hours, but never catch it or eat it, while cats are more focused on the kill, ha! Made me think of WD!!
Hmmmmm...sounds like I need to hire Odie as an instructor on squirrel takedowns. You can always put Hubs outside with a Zorro mask and wearing a fur coat to entice Mr. Raccoon to come closer for a kill shot. :))
LMAO! Hubs was just saying yesterday he always wanted a cane with a sword in it! He took one (a racoon) out a couple of years ago with his 22 at 4:30 in the morning, neighbors called to see if I was OK! LOL
Ha,I shall now refer to him as DeadEye. How's the back feeling today and did 'ya get rid of the headaches? I think the cortisone was the cause of those.
Yeah, Friday was rough, I had a fever and headache, and those were two of the signs that maybe some spinal fluid had leaked out when I got the shot...scary, but the headache was not sever and I don't have a thermometer to know if the fever was >101, but felt like a million bucks yesterday and today, so I think I'm good to go now! :)
Kool,glad your feeling better. If DeadEye is watching Nascar ask him who is going to win? If he says Jeff Gordon with hold ALL beer. :))
Popeye omelets and grilled hamburgers for breakfast! Guess who had which?
May I have ODIE for $ 1000.00 please Alex? :))
Ha! He prefers chicken and is on a low carb diet still!! How's WD doing? Seems she came up with quite the recipe for beer butt chikken yesterday!
Morning..She is my culinary Queen,as the John Boehner, spritzed every 15 minutes with pineapple juice was fantastic. She spit out the Harry Reid as he was a spicy old bird. Why are you abusing Odie in this manner?
Well, he developed Diabetes in January and almost died...had 2x a day insulin shots for 3 months and it controlled it, now he has to be on a special diet or we go back to shots...I think he prefers this!
Poor Odie,Give him a good belly rub for me please. Gawd,I hate shots. What's happening around the Casa today? WD and I are watching Nascar from the Queen's hometown. Goooooooo,Little E !!!
Ah, I think hubs might join you! He loves a Nas Car! Too early for anything yet, I have to take it easy for 3 days, today is day #3... Although hubs did hopefully wake up the neighbors with the smell of grilling hamburgs @ 8 am!!
Cheerios Chumanarios! Happy Sunday, yay 1 more day off then back to work! As you can see, I feel 1,000% better than Friday... :)
Glad to hear you are better! Cheers!
Happy weekend, everyone! Have to clean the house, today and prep it for the imminent arrival of dear ol' dad. Too much to do in too little time. Oh well!
@AleeD – Palm trees can be sneaky... Watch out!
You should be cool and comfy. The weather satellite shows fog and clouds. Enjoy!
Agreed about the outrage...!!
Ok folks, I am out. Will talk to y'all later!
How ho on a Saturday AM. Gently foggy out and very nice. I can't figure out how to post pictures but a FB friend has one that says
"If You Are Not Outraged, You Are Not Paying Attention!"
Good morning all!
Ditto about the clowns in DC. Cannot believe they are all still behaving like five year olds. Hopefully something gets worrked out. Enough wealth has already been destroyed at the hands of partisanship.
Ok, enough politics. Pass the chicken Bro!
Gooooooooood Morning my Brother–Decide on a movie yet? Stuff some extra kleenex in your pocket in case the Beautiful Bride starts to cry and you can use them to cover your face so that no one can recognize you. Chicken won't be ready till around 3:00.
No call on the movie yet, as Bride is working all day and we head to the concert tonight.. Am working from home today and will head out later to kill off the week's errands. Trying to get productive, but am in stalling mode right now.
Good Saturday Morning,Homies. In honor of our BOZO President and all the Clowns in Congress...WD and I are grilling Beer Can Chicken using 40 oz beers 'cuz these guys are such tight azzez. Gonna try something NEW today..The John Boehner, We will use a mixture of sweet Paprika and Saigon cinnamon which should match his orange tan when grilled.WD recommends I grill some pineapple rings in case this one is too sour. She is a culinary GENIUS!!
Next is the Harry Reid, We will use a combination of chili powder,garlic powder and garlic salt,plus a pinch of Saigon cinnamon to get rid of THE HAIR of the DOG affect. This one should be spectacular.
We were gonna do a John McCain but he is at Antiques Roadshow to see what his real worth is. For sides we will have grilled corn on the cob with jalapeño butter,kicked up pinto beans and corn bread. Dessert is up in the air,yet WD is recommending something with ice cream. Have a GREAT Weekend and stay KOOL everyone. :))
HA! First in this weekend ..... and.no.icing.in.sight. Pooh. *puts spoon back in drawer*
G'morning and Sappy Hatterday everyone! Just sipping diet dew and puterin' quietly while hubby sleeps. Once he get's up, we'll be murdering a palm tree. Mwah-ha-ha-ha. It'sthisclosetothehouse, so it's gotta go.
Have a good weekend everyone!
Ok friends, I am out. Have a safe weekend if I don't talk to you before.
I'm out for today. Have a great weekend everyone!
I'm heading out! Have a great weekend!
JBJ- Yes IB is an anti-inflammatory.
Alright gang, I am out of here. Hope everyone enjoys the weekend!
I have a stooopid question...is Ibuprofen an anti inflammatory med? I'm not suppose to take any anti-inflams for 3 days but I have a headache that just won't go away and it's making me quite crabby and unhappy. Thanks.
I think it is anti inflammatory. Does it say on the bottle?
I don't think I really care at this point, I've tried drinking tons of water, eating, sleeping, eating again, diet coke, and still have it. I just had a cortisone injection yesterday and I think they don't want me to bleed? But I can't see how that is possible. BTW – I just went to your blog as I am home and have no evil network firewalls, and lady that is some funny sh!t!! Oh to be young again...
I do try! Thanks!
If you have Tylenol I think it's OK
Not sure why you would be told not to take IB's. Cort injections & IB's are both anti-inflammatories. IB's are mild; cortisone is strong. Until QOE can give us the real scoop, check this out and see if it makes sense.
Specifically the section titled "What happens after I get the shot? "
Well, I bit the bullet and took 2 ib's, to he!! with it. AleeD I agree, don't know why, but I couldn't take them 7 days before the shot either which made more sense cuz they were putting a needle in my spine and didn't want me to bleed all over the place I guess. I rarely get headaches but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis (sp?).
Just got back from an incredible lunch at the place that i will GLADLY take any of the flamenons to if y'all are ever visiting Denver...Lincoln's roadhouse.
Took my pastor to lunch and I predict a food coma in about half an hour...WELL worth it though!
What did you have?
The fried catfish basket with homemade potato chips and hushpuppies.
Hushpuppies with honey is absolute food of the Gods...
Place looks AWESOME!
Hoo! Yes it does!
Like I said, my fav lunch hangout and if ANY of the Klatch ever make it to Denver, I will buy. Never been there at night, but it is apparently epic. The food is amazing though...
Wish I was going to be in MHC sometime soon and I'd take you up on it.
Is it nap time yet? I'm so tired today. Have to go blitz the house, hubby's aunt is coming by tomorrow with our new kitty... I hope this one isn't a stoner like my other cat. Can't afford the price of cat nip :)
Slow day for a Friday morning.
Anybody have fun plans for the weekend?
I want to support and join the League of Funny Bitches!
Dropping bull frogs in front of speeding 18 wheelers on I-10.
LMAO!!!!! The visual is just too good!
Eastern Shore with the boy and my mom. first vacation with her in about 15yrs....
Wow that should be fun! I hope you enjoy it.
not sure if "fun" is the word...but it should be interesting!!
Going to see CAA on Sat. Probably dig up a soon-to-be-dead palm on Sunday.
Hey purdy lady!
How YOU doin'? How's the banking business treatin' you today? Is it good or do I have to come over there and muss 'em up?
BTW, you have a fascinating way of looking at life. Can't help but love ya! <3
HAHA yeah interesting is a nice way to put it I guess ;-)
I'll veto that wire transfer!
Hey,I need that money for my tanning salon.
I personally think that both houses of congress should be put immediately on lockdown and nobody goes in or out until a deal is reached. No food, no water and no bathroom breaks. Do it and stop d!(king around...!
ABSOTIVELY agree. time for LOCKDOWN!
BTW my response to this is that for all elections over the next 5 years or so I will automatically vote out every incumbent I can find......
these %^&$#@(* turf wars have to STOP.
Hubby calls that "flushing the toilet."
That phrase more or less nails it. As far as I'm concerned they are ALL "circling the drain"...........
(can you pick any ONE of these creatures who deserves to be voted FOR?)
Not really. But (understating a point) alot of people went to alot of effort to make sure I had the right to vote. So I do the best I can with what I have to work with. ;)
DEAR CONGRESS, Last year I mismanaged my funds and this year my family and I cannot decide on a budget. Until we have come to a unified decision that fits all of our needs and interests, we will have to shut down our checkbook and will no longer be able to pay our taxes. I'm sure you'll understand. Thank you very much for setting an example we can all follow.
I am glad to have the right to vote. Don't miss understand. It is the very exercise of that right that make the US different and better. In any other country these guys would have been assassinated by now for their malfeasance, lack of direction and generally floppy sloppy conduct, and messing with the lives of EVERYONE in such a manner.
But we do it with ballots not bullets.
Malfeasance: the performance by a public official of an act that is legally unjustified, harmful, or contrary to law; wrongdoing (used especially of an act in violation of a public trust).
Well, this is interesting...One of my tenants is the federal gov't and they have already sent the wire acknowledgement for Monday's rent payment. I was wondering if in the event of default who would get paid and who not.
Happy Friday! Hope the day doesn't drag along leading up to the weekend. One more day, then I'm free!
All the hate on the KFC blog makes it very unappetizing to say the least. KFC is good, but I really like Popeye's. Especially their biscuits – brushed with butter. Dang, I'm getting hungry again.
Church's beat Popeye's in a taste tho both are owned by the same company. Yep,the biscuits are the best part.
I just popped over to that thread to tell them to lighten up and get l@!d more...
I know that would help MY mood! TMI????
Goodmorning everyone, happy Friday!
Good Morning Chipper McGee!
Morning! in the PTZ anyway. Love your blog! Too cool!
If you talk to him again, maybe promise him a treat, or to do something special over the weekend. That is what Mom used to do to placate me...Of course, I was in college at the time...:)
What he really wants to do is go my parents house to watch their new roof get put on but it's waaaaaay too hot outside for that. Hubs was trying to placate him with a popsicle (AKA a siclepop) instead.
Morning, all! Anyone else planning to see "Cowboys and Aliens" this weekend? I'm enjoying some leftover chicken tetrazini for lunch.
I didn't know you spoke Franch.:) Saw the preview for CAA and not really impressed.
I would like to see CAA this weekend, but given that we watched "Taken" twice this week on cable, I think Miss Saigon gets to pick the weekend cinema...
Can you say "Chick Flick"?
Yeah, I am think that on Sunday, I may get dragged to see "Crazy, Stupid Love", but she may opt for an action flick. Anything but The Smurfs, I can live with...
That's only right. :)
I definitely want to. I've been waiting for it to come out. But I don't know if I'll see it this weekend.
Good day chums. I'm glad it's Friday, even if it feels like Tuesday.
Good Day,it's almost over so hang in there.
It's a busy one for me, but that's good. I hate being bored.
Just got off the phone with Thing 1. He's crying and wants me to come home "right now!" And just like that, my pretty good day has been wiped out by a raging case of mommy guilt. *sigh*
You can always walk into the castle wearing your Casey Anthony halloween mask,that should calm him down.
I think I'll pass on that but thanks!
Good morning! Can I have some of your energy please?
Morning,I've got to hit Petsmart later soooooo do you need anymore puppy pads? :))
FAIL=====Embedding disabled. Sigh.
Hello all, and TGIF! How is everyone doing?
Morning,You wouldn't happen to have any good Boogie Woogie music to get us into the weekend mood? Thanks.
Pillow fights are good for the weekend mood!
Can't see the video but the title screams porn site. Yes, no, maybe so?
Was a music video by the Flaming Lips (not porn – I wouldn't set up anyone like that) with two girls having a pillow fight. Most people like pillow fights. Most people.
Were they on trampolines?
Try to cut and paste between the
The Communists moderated me!
Go to youtube and do a search for The W.A.N.D. by the flaming lips.
We are watching you–Infidel.
Good morning kids! Happy Friday. :) Home today on Dr.'s orders, no driving for 24 hrs. So I will try to get some work done from here, just emails really... Did I miss anything good yesterday??
Morning,How's the back? I believe Hubs has hidden the little hand bell that the Queen sent you,as he and Odie were seen stuffing cotton balls in their ears. :)))
Back is sore, have a headache, I'm hungry, and I'm tired. Hubs went to play tennis, thank goodness and Odie is snoozing somewhere, so it is blissfully quiet. I guess I need to go rest up and eat and return when I'm in a better mood...
Maybe if you watched a little OKRA network tv you will feel better.
HA !! I love her blog tho..it's a different outlook on life.
Do share the link, do share!
The bar was a rare glimmer in the other dusty life of Phoenix. Went there on the first night!
As to Tazer's blog – http://tazerwarriorprincess.wordpress.com/
Hilarious blog. You must have fun working/hanging out with her!
Wow! FAB blog! Funny like I wanted the Chum blog to be but I am outclassed!
Win! Win! Win! Ding!Ding!Ding!
OMGoodness started reading this and then realized that I was laughing too hard to be at work
Oh my goodness I love you guys.
Top of the morning everyone!
Morning,what type of trouble will we get into today?
Trouble? It's only trouble if you get caught :)
TGIF! Hello everyone! I do apologise for my absence, as of late. I have been way busy with work, and there is little sign of it slowing up in the near future.
I bring a plate of peanut butter chocolate chip cookies as penance! How are y'all?
Hey man, how was Phoenix?
Phoenix was just about hell on earth. You know it's bad when the weather girl is excited when it was ONLY 107. Yeah, that's just unpleasant.
Rich, I was trying to make Taze feel a little better by reminding her of some other embarrassing moments. hehehe
I was there iduring a January, I can't imagine going there in July but over all I thought the city sucked. What did you think of the Irish bar?
Morning,Did you get your Red Bull and shot last night?
Since you brought cookies, I will re-instate the points I deducted during your absence. Speaking of points...I will post the current point standings as soon as I make...I mean, tally them up.
Morning Crew. No cross-dressing here. Speaking of, where has Jerv been lately?
Morning Bro–How 'ya feeling today?
Still feel fairly nauseous and whatever I have is giving me a very heightened sense of smell. Add in DC heat and a packed trainload of people who think deodorant is an option and you have yourself on the edge of a Biddle Barfing Binge. I can't imagine the triple B's being pretty!
EWWWWW--When do you go to the DR?
Went on Wednesday and had blood work and the dixie cup sample. Results (not resluts) should be in early next week. Be curious to see what happens next.
Let me know what they find out. Haven't heard from Jerv so I'm assuming EOM reports are due and he is working his butt off.
Those naughty people on the KFC thread got out of hand and it was taken down....that's a FIRST if memory serves me correctly.
I'm not surprised... gods.
(See my above comment about idiots with a cause and/or stupid elitist prejudices)
It didn't get taken down but it did get moved to the top of the post list.
Good morning all. Got to sleep in this morning. 8:30!!! It was nice :)
Good morning everyone!
QOE, glad to hear Thing 1 is better. Has he been hanging around Sir Bid?
JJ, thanks for the cupcakes! I enjoyed sharing the remnants of the icing with you yesterday. BTW, who was that guy who kept throwing elbows and waving a wooden spoon around?
Survey says: The Witty One
I gave him a batch one day and now he's addicted
I don't think he's been around the Biddle but there was a rather tall gentleman in some faboo red leather pants and a white peasant top at WallyWorld this weekend.
See what happens when you do a double butt scratch–it makes you late for work and all the cupcakes are gone. :)))
JJ, Brownie-stuffed cupcakes would get me addicted, too! Can't say as I blame him. :D Did you post the how-to on those? I'd love to try them.
RH, Wasn't late. Got ... tied up. I don't mind missing the cupcakes – I got icing yesterday.
If you're going to beat the whip, you need something bigger than elbows & a spoon, Big Boy. ;)
QOE, So both Sir Bid & Jerv are cross-dressers? Learn something new every day.
totally forgot to post that! I'll do some when i get back from Indy, altho Cookie Dough stuffed are MUCH easier than Brownie stuffed
I heard Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night" on the radio again this morning and all I could think of was Tazer hurling out her car window and running around pantless.
Is there video? She probably had one Hellova Hangover.
A video? We can only hope.
Any chance for a meet up next week while I'm in Indy!?! I get in early Wednesday morning and leave late on Sunday
Heck yeah! Send me an e-mail, email@example.com, and we can iron out the details.
Good morning, chums! This coffee sucks this morning. Not the coffee in the lounge, the coffee on my desk.
What chu talkin' bout Willis? WD and I made coffee this morning. Wave to the Nascar rednecks for me please.
I'm sure the coffee you two made is spec-dang-tacular, however, I'm stuck with crappy hospital grade java.
How is Thing 1 doing today, and how is the rest of the Royal Family?
Thing 1 is seems to have recovered from his tummy troubles and so far the rest of us do not seem to be affected.
Good morning all, and Happy Friday!
Anyone have big plans for the weekend?
I'm going away for the weekend for my companys annual Christmas in July party. It will be a weekend chock full of drinking, eating, boating, drinking, drinking, and maybe some more drinking. It's always a good time!
Morning Bro...Looks like all the hot air from DC blew TS Don further south and we probably won't get any rain:( WD and I will be chill in' and grilling' this weekend plus watching the Indy race. What's your plans?
Getting my first inoculations and going to see some Vietnamese caoncert tomorrow night at Bride's insistence. File it under "The Things We Do For Love"...
DO NOT drop your pants no matter what the nurse tells you. The concert sounds interesting though–is the orchestra from VN?
What are you getting innoculated for?
I am getting the first of my Hepatitis B series, along with my MMR and Tetanus series and my TB test. A lot of this I may have already had when I was in the military, so I am bringing in my shot records and letting them figure it out. Tetanus I need to have done again, as I last had it when I was doing Katrina relief, and it was not documented. If time permits, I may also pick up my gear and uniforms, as we are expected to be in uniform on day 1.
The concert should be fun. Late, but fun. It is a series of singers from VN who tour the US regularly. Bride has gone before with her sister in law, but this is a first for me.
TB testing has to be done yearly and you'll probably still get the MMR as the immunity does wear off.
Miss Saigon actually had to go through the whole 9 months of TB medications, as she was carrying when she got here. Made her extremely sick, but now she is done for good. And you are probably right, in that they will probably hit me again with the rest, as my time in the service was back in 1983...Hard to believe that I would be pension elegible by now.
The only thing you may get out of is the Hep B series but only is you've had all 3 shots before. Once you get these out of the way you only have to go through the annual TB test and flu and pneumonia vaccines.
And people are idiots (looking at the KFC honors Col. Sanders thread). Why is it that some people will use any thread to either spout some ideology (here it's usually vegetarian/vegan/let's save the animals...) or show just how stupid/racist/elitist/etc they are, or *both*?
@JJ Sounds wonderful!
I have fresh blueberries and cream.
Hello! As promised: Brown Butter Cupcakes with Chocolate Chocolate Chip Icing. Enjoy!
Good Morning and Thank You,they look yummy.
NOM NOM NOM!!!
It's Friday,Let's Happy Dance!!! Coffee is ready and I am FIRST in line for JJ's cupcakes..HA !
