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.
Greetings and salutations! No need for a search party, I just need EG's minions to find me a few more hours in my day... So much busier with the new job, and by the time I have a spare moment everyone's checked out.... So sad.
Missing all of my Klatschie-Flamenons terribly.
Well, we're still here for you! Er, here and there.............from time to time...............it's complicated! ((Hugs!))
Ok folks, I am out. Will talk to y'all in the morning. Be well!
This just in: Amanda Knox has had her conviction overturned. Her immediate plans include joining OJ and Casey Anthony in the search for the Real Killers, after finding a place where she can get some good Italian tonight.
You may now resume your regularly scheduled Eatocracy.
I heard they were all going to co-write a book titled "If your case is public enough, you're automatically innocent."
What about me and the one armed man?
Whoops. One day back, and I already got myself moderated. I assume the robots have started their uprising again?
Robots or zombies, either one. Last week there was a call to arm ourselves with sporks in preparation.
No worries...I've been hit twice...Sigh.
Nah, it's funny. I'll just have to be more careful. I believe my mistake was probably the word "t i tled".
Looks like I need to catch up on my words of the day and expand my vocabulary to prevent that.
We have to make sure you are who you say you are. Please step down to the dungeon and leave a spec!men on the pole. We'll swab it for DNA later. Thank you for your cooperation.
Hm... intriguing request. This... pole you speak of. It's nowhere near the cold stone table, correct? Because I am not going near that thing.
Please add SeaBee (although he made a brief appearance last week), Tazer, and wendy to your list of MIA....
What about mare?
Yes and Mare too! Geez we are missing quite a few folks these days.
And Dave the 1st, SaraEllen and Georgia Peach. My goodness, we're dropping like flies!
They are disappearing!
This is all part of a vast and far reaching liberal conspiracy, I tell you!
They were probably all the same people too.
And here I thought the Queen said it was a Zombie conspiracy. I can't keep up. ;)
The zombies are causing the posting problems. The liberals are kidnapping our friends. Try to keep up with the program, my friend.
Ok, who amongst us is "Seann" on the nachos thread?
Haha! I saw that too but definitely not me.
Well done Bro!
Always good to stir the pot.
And speakin gof Pot, I had a great time at the concert on Friday. Not much better than GD tunes at Red Rocks in fall.
Oh yeah, I meant ot ask you about that. I bet it was awesome. Was there a lot of o-ray-gah-no being passed around or do they not do that anymore?
They don't do it any less.
You'll need two hands but pass this down,Buddy.
Actually a ton. I was hoping that it did not permeate my shirt too much, as I didn't want Bride to think I was partaking (not that I was...I will be needing to pass a UA soon). Good show though. Chris Robinson of The Black Crows showed up for the second set.
Here's the setlist:
Set 1: Aiko Aiko, Greatest Story Ever Told > Cold Rain and Snow, Me and My Uncle, Ramble on Rose, Loser, Money for Gasoline, Box of Rain
Set 2: You Ain't Going Nowhere (1) (2), Hard to Handle (2), Two Souls in Communion (2) (3), Cryptical Envelopment > The Other One > Cryptical Envelopment > The Wheel > Supplication Jam > Death Don't Have No Mercy, Scarlet Begonias > I Know You Rider E: Attics Of My Life
Comment: (1) Bob Dylan cover, first time played by Furthur
(2) with Chris Robinson
(3) last/only other Two Souls: 3/12/10
Sounds like the concert was da bong I mean the bomb. So, who does the NFL nose picks this week? I'll catch you guys tomorrow morning. Have a great afternoon!
Be careful Lil' Buddy. I think it's my turn,what say you Truth?
See you tomorrow Jerv – Rumor has it that TB is going with a different class of starters tonight:
Jaina- Damn, I was in NYC Saturday afternoon!
I went to a tea shop called Tea & Sympathy (in the West Village) and had afternoon tea. The same owner has a fish-n-chips shop two doors down called A Salt & Battery.
BTW, Hello everyone!
How's it going? I was in NYC once in my early 20s. It scarred the bejezuz out of me. A Salt & Battery, clever name.
Good afternoon! had a great weekend in NYC with the boy and his family, lots of good food and good convo. His sister made the most amazing Mocha Cheesecake as our birthday cake...out of this world AMAZING!
Wow, that does sound great. Did she share her recipe or is it top secret? I scored Battlestar Galactica seasons 1 through 3 for 19 bucks each over the weekend.
Sorry for the long absence. Hope everyone has been doing well.
Hey Bro, How 'ya feeling? Did the minions take care of you?
Holy crap EG, what kind of evil sickness did you have?
I guess karma has a way of catching up to you, when you're as evil as I am.
Hey there! Glad you're back.
Thanks, I'm glad to be back. Finally.
Oh my gosh! Thank goodness you're back! Now we just have to send out a scouting party for MTMiner.
Let us also not forget, SirB,Mare,Snowbunny and faith who I think is in training for her run.
And can we put out an Amber Alert for JDizz? I was hoping he would show up before our moriv premier later this month...
make that "movie premiere"...
Howdy! Lovely to see you back. SLT is out sick today, but I'm delighted by your return.
Glad to see the return! Have the minions kept you tied up in the dungeon?
Wow! Thanks everyone. I had no idea I was so missed. I sure missed all of you, though.
Just for heads up, this may occasionally happen once in awhile, though I hope not. And hopefully not for so long the next time.
And no, the minions didn't lock me away. They would be in fear for their lives should they have done so. Great Fear. I'd prefer not to go into it in detail, but it's kind of a chronic illness thing. I'm working on it, though.
Sad to hear I wasn't the only absentee. What happened, end of the year vacations?
Well, SeaBee's been working hard, Tazer dumped us for her blog (which is funny as hell, by the way) and MTMiner went hunting and never came back. I'm pretty sure he's being held hostage by a bear.
Looks like I should send out the minions to find SeeBee and MTM and bring them back safely. Taze will just have to find her way back when she remembers us little people she left behind.
We have to make sure it's really you ... since you have trained the minions so well ... Please step down to the dungeon and leave a specimen on the pole. We'll swab it for DNA later. Thank you.
Make up your mind....geez.
Greets. The lack of focus in the photo on top reminds me of how the world looks before I put my glasses on.................
Hello there pretty lady. I know the feeling. I have to put my glasses on to see the alarm clock time.
I "Brake" for compliments! Thanks!
Good morning all! High of 79 today, yeah a cold front! We hit 98 on Saturday, so it's time to give the a/c a rest already. How was everyones weekend? I made my moms Dutch Potatoe Salad yesterday from a 30+ year old recipe, so good.
You gonna share that recipe with us??
I'll scan it in the puter tonight to share!
Thank you so much?
Good morning klatschkies! Hope everyone had a nice wekeend.
Me and my brother played through an entire video game's story campaign in one sitting on Saturday to help raise money for children's hospitals. It was a good weekend. =)
Great job, DJC. Was that all day Saturday? Can you tell us how much you raised?
Well, we were playing something else in the morning from 9:00 AM, but we started playing this particular one at around 10:00 or 11:00 AM and were finishing up the credits at around 9:00 PM, including a few bathroom breaks and lunch. We then had dinner and I crashed on my bed for a bit shortly afterward.
I raised a total of $395 that's going to be donated to the Miami Children's Hospital Foundation.
It was a lot of fun and I'm definitely going to be looking out for it next year. While there is another such event that's coming up in 2 weeks, that one is an entire commitment of going a full 24 hours. I don't think I can pull that off just yet!
Top of the morning all! Just wanted to pop in and wish everyone the best :)
On a side note, does anyone know a good moat builder/digger? I think I want to have a moat surrounding my cube at work...
Tazer has a metal spork she may be willing to loan to you for digging purposes. If EG ever shows up again, maybe he'll loan you a minion.
I also have a spork :) It's just a plain black spork....with a pirate temporary tatoo! It's a shame pirate sporks are so lazy or I would put that matey to work! Argh!
Only a temporary tattoo? Your spork sounds like a wuss.
Love the apron, that's the best! Well, beginning of the month and work is calling. Talk at cha later!
Good morning all!
A beautiful morning here in the MHC, even with the pathetic mess that was yesterday's Broncos game.
My prediction for tonight: TB 21, IND 10.
How is everyone today?
Good Morning Bro... You must be assuming that Indianapolis can even count to 10 even when spotted the first 9.
Rumor has it that the Bucs are letting the Tampa Bay Elementary School play the first quarter, so it may in interesting.
Sounds like you and WD are enjoying a great morning. Definitely something to be said for October. My absolute favorite month of the year.
Ohhhhhh,a Queenie Burn,hahahaha. I'll be back shortly,the Beauty Shop calls.
Burn? You call that a burn? I've been burned worse by the non-English speaking clerk at the Speedway station. Try again, boys.
Rise and Shine Chumarinos....It's the start of a New week. Hope you All had a fantastic weekend. Coffee is ready,tea pot is heating and WD is excited 'cuz she is going to the Beauty Shop this morning. Let's make it a Great Day,All.
What's going on, dude! Rainly dreary cold day here in VA. Looks like I didn't do too bad on my picks. Saw the GB game through the third quarter. They crushed Denver.
Morning Lil'Buddy,Another Beautiful Day in Katy......54 degrees and WD and I are sitting on the patio drinking coffee. You did damn Good on picks my friend. I heard Truth screaming all the way down here. HA!! O.K. here are the latest standings for the NFL Nose Pickers on Coffee Klatsch--
1. Truth 8-5
2. RH 8-5
3. JERV 7-4
4. Sports Dork aka Sir Biddle..DNP 6-2
5 Queenie 4-3,Sadly this is what happens when you COPY answers from your Best Friendsies paper. :))
May I also add Tony Romo and The Indianapolis Dolts STILL suck.
Haha! NFL Nose pickers. When I was a rug rat, we used to sing that Dr. Pepper commercial "I'm a picker you're a picker." Good times. I tried to watch some news yesterday but had to turn the set off. It is so fraking depressing. Well, at least it's football season! Go Packers!
I hear 'ya Buddy. For a good laugh and nice eye candy go to yesterdays Lounge thread and check out JBJ's pictures from her trip. :))
I don't think I've ever been referred to as "eye candy"! Thanks. Hopefully you were talking about my pic not Deadeye and the Barmaid!? ;)
If he were SirB talking about eye candy then he would definitely be talking about Deadeye.
Of course I was speaking of you. :))
Awww, thanks! That made my day... ;)
