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.
Shhhhhh--go rangers. hehe.
Come on Tony !!!!
Is Tony Bennett gonna sing? How can the Cardinals afford him?
I'm not watching it – I switched my phone over to mobile site & everything is taking longer to load :-/
Hoping to have a good night tonight !
See ya in the morning :-) lol
Ok folks, I am out. Time to go home and watch sports on television. Talk to y'all in the a.m.!
Dear Spatula Twins,
Would you be so kind as to send me Form # 222-–It's the I Wanna Kick a Troll's Azz in the Lounge form. I realize we have never used this before,and I will fill it out in triplicate for insurance purposes and whatever. Thank You.
I actually think he's fun. I like trolls.
I like them, too. Over an open flame.
Wow, I go to lunch and a meeting, come back and all he!! has broke loose! Who left the door open and let the riffraff in??
I have requested the proper paperwork for extermination. Please, Remain Calm, Do Not Panic. :)))
Sounds like what they told us this morning during "The Great California Shake Out"! Stop, Drop, and Hold On, it's the biggun.
Like EG, I was thinking "just in" might have been a form of vapor, but he turned out to be a solid turd.
OMG, I almost spit iced tea out on that one! LMAO
Thank You, Smarter heads always prevail.
LOL! DJ is THE Jukebox King for all the right reasons.
howdy all. currently battling a wicked case of poison ivy. it's embedded in my system, has wrecked my immune system now, and i'm well on my way to an awesome cold/flu something or other. the voice was lost last nite...and the tonsils are swollen today. oh yeah... still itchin! ETA for the poison to leave the system? 3-4 weeks according to the severity of my symptoms. :) i am going home shortly and going to bed. to be continued...
Ohhhh Noooo, Sorry to hear this BBQ Queen,tho it does sound like a Kansas City Chief excuse...cough,cough. Was this from you property?
alas, it was from clearing out a fenceline at the house i am moving into. getting a new fence installed and had lots of cleanup to do. even after taking all the necessary precautions i still ended up with the itchies. grrr. yeahhh.. the Chiefs. that's a 4 letter word around my house. :)
May I recommend that you hire Mitt Romney's ex-lawn crew....Let them get the itches. :))
My gawd, sounds like you are falling apart. Get well very soon.
thanks! i'm working on it.. on my second week now of the itchies... yahoo!
Holy cow! I'm so sorry! Fingers are crossed that your immune system is better than your doc predicted. (((((many hugs)))))
Interesting video on the main page of the last moments of Ghadafi (dictator stooge) before he died. Looks like it was not pleasant.
But he died happy, as he just got a great deal on his car insurance by switching to Stateco.
Word is he passed with 2 gunshot wounds to the chest....Maybe he committed suicide?
Haha! He died happy alright. Not to change the subject but I talked to my pops about the Mexican truckers and he said we'll have more drugs being shipped over and the cartel wars right here in the US before the first big Mexican truck crash. You guys have a good evening.
Thanks Lil' Buddy...Have a good evening and tell Pop's it's already near me in Liberty county.
I'm YOUR Huckleberry...I warned you twice yesterday not to fuk with my friends. Are you ready to dance?
I think he's our new pet troll. Shall we fetch him a cork to sniff?
I was thinking the cork should end up somewhere else ...
I hate getting moder@ted when answering a troll. Takes all the fun out of it.
Your angry, bitter att!tude has no place here. We have people from all walks of life partaking in the camaraderie that makes up our group. The only rule is to be kind and thoughtful to each other with the occasional good-natured tease for flavor. If you want to stay and be a part of the Klatsch, then check your sh!tty demeanor at the threshold. Have An Ice Day.
(A little unorthodox, but...)
Sniffs armpits No. I'm not grimy at all. But thanks for bringing that up.
Fact: Did you know that most time when a person taunts another, they accuse them of their own weaknesses? So you calling people pedoph!les...
Don't make me give you a knuckle sandwich,arthritic hands hurt you more than me.
Ah. The endless Vegan/Meat debate wages on. Can't we all get along?
(I know the answer is no.)
I was wondering when you'd wonder this way, considering the frequency of your posts.
I find you words amusingly ironic.
Kindly eitehr get along with the rest of the class or gtfo. Now.
Caught me on "you" instead of "your". But wonder was intentional.
Ponder that briefly.
And that would make you....what??
Justin! Nice to see ya. What's shakin' numbnuts?
You guess would be incorrect but you are welcome to hang out if you like.
Well, since DJ Phil seems to have taken the day off, let me add some lunchtime tunes. I love this song, as it reminds me of a pretty good friend of mine who is getting up in years. Guy used to work in my building's parking garage. I make it a point to take him to lunch every month.
Excellent choice and message my Brother. :)
"God is great, beer is good and people are crazy." The best, thanks dude.
I'm not big on country music, but don't we all wish we could have a friendly chat over beer one night and inherit millions?
I believe after I take over the world, near the end of my life if my minions haven't figured out immortality, I will go out in disguise, have a friendly chat with some random people, and pass down the overlordship to whomever amuses me the most.
I'll supply the Kegs, the minions get very thirsty.
They do indeed. Good plan.
Hello everyone- tonight is my fiance's belated birthday dinner, and we still have no idea where we're going.
Please give a belated Happy Birthday from us all. Why not just pick up a bottle of wine,cook him his favorite dinner and relax together?
If you don't stay in and cook for him tell us about where you wound up going.
I agree with the other! Get some wine and cook up something fun and tasty :-) If he is more of a beer guy then go for a beer menu: Beer Bread with Beer Basted Chicken and then end with a Pumpkin Beer Pie!
Love that idea!
GADHAFI IS DEAD
So 3 hours ago......and Lyndsay Lohan took a dump. That is all.
Aw, come on man, all she needs is one more chance.
She's had 158 second chances. She just needs to be removed from the gene pool.
I'd hit Dat !!
Not even after a good D&C with Lime Away.
Linds is the type of woman who would make most men wish for a third gender to choose from. Just sayin'
I'm available Big Boy !
Hah, Truth. My grin got a little wider at that comment.
Always glad to amuse...
Good Thursday morning my friends! Hubs bought some new cookies yesterday, they look like the crispy edges of brownies, he has probably talked about them at least 45 minutes between last night and this morning, that's just how he rolls, LOL. I have a few to share if anyone wishes. And who took the coffee from the pictures! :(
You obviously are Not feeding Hubs enough--I like the way he rolls. How 'ya feeling Beer Babe?
Ha! The big guy feeds himself quite good and frequently I might add. Must be nice to have great metabolism... I'm a little sore today, had pool therapy yesterday and stretched a bunch of muscles that were perfectly happy not be stretched. :)
So this means Odie is your therapist? Saves on the Dr. visits–excellent.
Odie only specializes in sleep therapy, I may want to take one of his classes, good idea!
Thank You, I try to stay ahead of the curve....It's new wave and Jack LaLane combined. :))
Morning, chums. Finally a sunny, albeit slightly ominous day. I like that.
I'm just getting ready for an upcoming local reptile convention. Looking forward to meeting some of the local breeders. Taking stock of what supplies I have available and doing some care research in case I decide to bring a delightful little creature back to the Evil Lair to become a new animal minion.
What kind of creature you considering for the evil lair?
I'm thinking about a panther chameleon (Furcifer pardalis) or a sunbeam snake (Xenopeltis unicolor).
I've long thought about adding a varanid to the Lair for protection. A water monitor (Varanus salvator) would be just about perfect. They grow large and have naturally bad temperaments. However, I am wondering if the Lair currently has the space necessary to properly raise and train one. Of course, once the first is trained, it will be used to train others. I'll need a full protection detail.
For just a pet, the panther chameleon looks awesome! But for the protection detail, the monitor is definitely the way to go. I can even picture them in specialized body armor as you take over the world.
I love the visual of the monitors in body armor!
I'm a Ninja, I'm a bloody Ninja.
Google image the line below. The second & third images are what I had in mind for your monitor guardians.
Dryad – Monitor Lizard Temple Guardian
Hah. I'll have to draw out the specs sometime.
I love, by the way, that it also pulls up a picture of a water dragon propped up on a couch.
Alrightie-o back to work for me. Two more reports and then if's reconcile the purchase order log. Tons of fun.
Good morning all, and many condolences to the Rangers, who fought the good fight, but came up just a little short. I am predicting a major comeback tonight. 10-2, You heard it here first.
Will I get a Big hit,oh Great Obi Wan?
Not just a hit, but you will go for the cycle. You heard it here first.
I can Feel it. Must be that time of the month.
That explains why RichHd picked Tampon Bay.
It's a Ko-Texas thang !!
When I was a young'un, I was helping put the groceries away, and I put Mom's female supplies in the kitchen cabinet. When she corrected me, I said "But that is always where the napkins go"...
Always. Bery punny.
Hahahahaha–the innocence of youth. Got some shopping to do but NOT for napkins. Be back in a bit.
LOL! Corinn is still getting hits! You my sir receive the Blue Ribbon Stink Pot award!
I do my best...
Truth be told (no pun), Corinn was an amalgam of the worst of what I have dated, encountered and worked with. I did the online thing for a while and was completely repulsed at most of what is out there. It was tantamount to being in a human buffet just before closing and finding all the best is taken and nothing worthwhile is left.
Repulsed like Centipede II?
More like "A Serbian Film"...
Hope everyone has a Great day ! Work tonight for me . Why don't they show pretty cups ? And crystal ;-))))
We only break out the good china for the Holidays.....Besides,we have to take turns washing this stuff. How's things in MO ?
Things are good ! Glad LaRussa won !! Been his fan since 83 ;-) Have a Great day Richard :-)
Good morning. Were you ever able to get in contact with wendy??
Just on here :-) Have a Great day , Jerv !!!
Goooood morning and happy Thursday. Today is Friday for me. Mucho appreciado for the help on the threads yesterday. justadud is a rather angry fellow, isn't he? IDC It was fun. Can't help but wonder why he's not a cop anymore – not!. After hubby's procedure tomorrow, the installer will come out to check the floor again. We checked the water meter twice yesterday and it seems that we don't have a leak anywhere. Whew. Keep your fingers crossed that the floor is dry(er) and hubby gets a clean bill of health.
Good Morning Sista'. Good thoughts headed East for Hubs and the floor too.
I'm pulling for ya on both fronts, AleeD. Good karma my friend!
Good morning! No training today plus all the bosses are still away at the big conference :-D
Sounds like party time to me. Are you finally over the crud? It's been going around down here too.
I am 100% and loving it! The guy that sits next to me is now out so it's still going around the building.
It's somewhat nice not having the bosses but at the same time questions are not getting answered which is a pain in the a$$
Morning JJ. In addition to enjoying not having bosses in office, are you enjoying this fantastic weather?
Good Morning All,We've got coffee and Hot chocolate on a 44 degree morning here in Katy Texas. Feels Great outside. I see that Sir Biddle is making a guest appearance this morning from the picture above. You can tell it's him 'cuz he's wearing a Packers jersey while swimming no less. HA!
LM AO! I was going to say something about SirB as well but you beat me to it! Too damn funny! Where you headed today, dude? Yeah, wonderful fall weather here in VA as well.
Gooooooood Morning Lil' Buddy......Looks like SirB is trying the backstroke above. WD and I have an easy day today at home and a changeup in schedule of the Dallas run this evening. Seems we are short of trailers so I only have to drive to Centerville,TX ( halfway point between Houston and Dallas ) switch out trailers and my week is done. Yay. BTW,Watch out as the first Mexican trucks are being allowed to run U.S. roads beginning Friday. Sigh.
Nice to have an easy day. I just emailed my pops about the drivers crossing the border starting Friday. He will be pizzed. Speaking of trailers, I saw this tractor trailer with these long angled panels running down beneath the lenght of the trailer. I'm guessing that is some kind of aero dynamic thing to save fuel??
You are correct Oh Trucking smart one. They were introduced last year and it's just another thing that the rookies can tear up and rip apart. It's funny that the first Mexican Co. allowed to run in the U.S. only has two trucks and drivers. Rather odd when you think about it.
Yes that is odd. I bet they run the hell out of those Mexican drivers. How long do you think before the first big headlining wreck?
Your on the same wavelength as Truth and I....We talked last night after the terrible first Texas Rangers game. Anyway, It would seem to me that DOT needs to take a hard look at the trucks and drivers on the understanding of the English language,etc. It will only take one major accident caused by them to really set off the American public IMHO.
I bet you are right. It would be interesting to read about what kind of certs and credentials those drivers have. Anyway, did you see Qs NFL nose picks yesterday, of did I already ask you that?
You do realize that The Queen only picks her games by the color of the uniforms or Mascots, Right? Hahahahaha!!
So here are my week 7 picks..
Oakland,Tampon Bay,Jack Daniels Tennessee and on MNF-–Baltimore Birds.
Hey, I had the honor of speaking to Mrs. Truth last night via the voice communicator. She is Very shy but a very nice young lady.
Uniforms, mascots and anything that sparkles. Ha! That's our Q. That's cool that you spoke with Miss Saigon. I remember when Truth posted the photo of them. They looked like a very nice, happy couple. Have to be, in order to hang around the Klatsch at night messing up the furniture!
Hahahaha–Good one my friend.
