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.
Ok folks, I am off to go play doctor. Literally.
Talk to y'all in the a.m.!
Okie dokie smokies, I'm outta here! Hasta la later!
Alrighty folks! I'm headed home to do yoga, laundry and figure out what the heck Truth and the Queen are talking about.
Have a great night!
Given that the biggest o fthe Hallmark holidays is fast approaching, anybody have Valentines Day plans? I'm betting that I will get flowers, cards and some chocolate from Hubs and the boys.
I will be being eval'd on the use of the King Airway on supine, apneic patients.
Who says romance is dead?
King Airway? Well, I guess that's a pretty original nickname for it.
I gave my breakout group a laugh last night, when I told them how to remember the difference between Nasopharynx and Oropharynx...
I don't think I want to know. BTW, did you know that a nasal trumpet has uses in other orifices?
I have heard that. Our instructor was also telling us some of the various and sundry things that she has had to help remove from the anatomy. The most outlandish was a Barbie doll. I am not kidding.
Has anyone seen Jerv's Gerbil?
Yes, some people do get fairly "creative" with inantimate objects.
Another good story was about a guy who used a ring on his hardware while using viagra, and he had an event that lasted >4 hours, and had to go to the ER, to have said ring CUT OFF....oh the humanity. Dang near every guy in the classroom was cringing, and the ladies all had a good laugh.
During my ER clinicals we had EMS bring a guy in on a stretcher clutching his junk and screaming, "She broke it. The b$&%# broke it!" And that's the night we all learned that yes, "it" can be broken.
The typical stuff....dinner, flowers, chocolates, diamonds, hiding the salami.....
I'm glad to see you got the order right. Diamonds before salami, always.
BTW, I'm still skeeved out by the idea of you bumpin' uglies with anyone so I'm going to pretend that the salami is really a salami.
Why is that so gross to you??
And yes, it's just regular old, meaty salami...
Sometimes I really pity the first young ladies that THing 1 and THing 2 will be bringing home...I think our royal highness will be most protective of her young'uns...
You remind me alot of one of my older brothers. I know, theoretically, that he does it but I don't want to actually have to acknowledge it.
I would be perfectly fine with Thing 1 and 2 being gay if it meant that I wouldn't be usurped by some uppity female.
There's a little girl in Thing 1's preschool class that needs to learn to keep her hands to herself. Although her mother is a trollop too so what do you expect?
I hate it when Hallmark runs out of National Cherry Pie Day cards.
Another weird thing...I HATE carrying pennies. I have a jar at home that I toss them into when they collect. When the jar gets full, I take to the bank and run through their counter. Quarters get saved for Sundays, and used to buy the paper at the vending box, and for the bowling fund (if you do not get a mark in the fifth frame, you owe a quarter to the league's prize fund)
RED PIN ON TEN!!!!
My BF hates to walk around with pennies in his pockets, too. He says they make his pants too heavy and they creep down his but t. Makes him crazy.......Fun to watch, too. The stop, pause, and give it a hitch thing.......
Bumper Bowling is SoooooooFun isn't it Bro? Just pickin' on 'ya. :))
When buying something with cash, do you put your currency in the cashiers hand or do you put it on the counter? I go with putting it their hand, seems to make the transaction go faster.
Hand. Putting it on the counter is akin to paying Pretty Woman by throwing your money on the bed and just walking away.
Hand. And my personal pet peeve is when the balance your change, coins and receipt in a stack and then expect you to disappear immediately.
With you on that one. I like it when they put the coins in my hand first and then give me the bills and receipt.
They go into two different pockets. Why does nobody seem to get that?
I feel you on that one! Change goes in my left pocket, bills in the money clip in my right. That way, the center console on my car isn't in the way when I go to grab the change out of my pocket to throw in the ashtray when I get to the car.
in hand. Also a pet peeve when they give back change and place it on the counter instead of in my hand. Also not a fan of when they push me away but seeing as how a number of registers ding associates for "gap time" between customers I try to keep it contained.
That just reminded me: I've got no beef with our grocery store employees at the end of the transaction. The ones that frost me are the customers behind us in line who think they have to follow that first item thru the scanner whether I've moved or not. "Just hang on there pal. I'm moving as fast as I can."
Alee D: I completely agree. The customer behind starts shuffling forward before I'm done. I HATE being crowded and manipulated like that.
So I end up stopping at the firewood section by the front door and THEN stuff my change into my purse and get ready to actually head for the car with my cgroceries. Pi$$ez me off!
Any "shufflers" out there? WAIT YOUR TURN!!!!!!! And give the customer who is completing their transaction time to complete it before you move in on them!!!!!!!!!!! (ME? Fired up? Moi?) HOT BUTTON! (Small button but hot like lava)
I generally pay for everything with pennies, so this is a 50/50 for me. A pack of gum is one thing, but a fill-up at the gas station can be challenging.
If the Cashier is Good Looking I let her put the change in MY pocket. If I buy the merchandise and am a Good Customer of this store....I Expect a Good Grope every once in awhile.
Ding! Ding! Ding! Winner in the BEST Comment category! Win!
Thank You...What do I Win? Hopefully Not the guy on the roof!!
Good question! Klatchers? What does RH win?
I like to stare at the cashier with loving, tender eyes to make them uncomfortable. Then I slowly slide the change into my pocket and wink suggestively. Then I run to the door, and as I approach the door, I pretend to hit my head on it and fall to the ground, all in slow motion. Then I stand up and bow, head back to the register and give my change to the needy kids jar.
Keep in mind that japenese folks won't hand anything directly to you. They put in on a tray and then hand you the tray. Accept with two hands so as not to insult!
Your comment is awaiting moderation.
Seriously good runner up!
What's the scoop with the Cat on a Hot Tin Roof?
sorry about the link not working. I can't get a decent update. The story just caught my attention because it is so weird.
The family hid the diagnosis from Big Daddy...
@MicG™ the video won't play misty for me.
@Truth™, sooooooo he is not the father?
Thaks for covering for me while I was out this morning as to the Chevy/Apocolypse comment on the meat thread.
No worries, Mate! All us blondes (temporary or otherwise) gotta stick together.
Oh the times we've had :)
My dog wants you to smell her butt and then you can tell us all what vintage it is.

Ahhhhh, the good ol' days. Before Tazer dumped us for her blog and the rest of us had to go back to work.
Wow! I've never seen Michele so fired up! I'm still reading it, but dang! You GO girl!
I wonder whatever happened to vapor? Did he finally get let out of the basement?
Vapor disappeared about the same time that Christmas Recess ended...
I thought he came back as Just-a-dude after his class in remedial punctuation.
ME? Fired up? ME?
the guy is STILL on the roof. Wearing a ski cap (not mask), really REALLY baggy pants, long sleeved sweatshirt. 3, 4 or 5 helicopters overhead including news choppers with really, really good cameras and optics, 25 or so officers on the ground around the houses...........and he thinks he's going to escape?????
Maybe he thinks he's Santa Claus?
I guess that's the problem. He's not thinking at all.
A SPECTACULAR LOOSER!
Is he acting dizzy (could be a blond-ing incident)?
Maybe he thinks he can fly.
I believe I can fly. I believe I can touch the sky. I think about it every night and day...
Hello! So... tonight I do something daring... I'm going to a salon and getting blue streaks in my hair!
It's something I've wanted to do for a while, but haven't been brave enough. I'm still not sure I'm brave enough. But my boss said she wouldn't have a problem with it.
Girl, are you stealing my fashion designs?
I'm talking about my hair... not my clothes. :)
Don't worry Mil, Lady Gaga is a liberal stooge.
This just in. "Researchers have discovered what they believe is the oldest living thing on the planet, Mediterranean Sea, seagrass that is 100,000 to 200,000 years old." That is all.
And Ron Paul still has it beat by a good ten years...
And now we have a BIG raven pacing back and forth along our back fence..... Pacing back and forth, back and forth......
Does the dude on the roof resemble Paul Newman? Is Liz up there, too?
Some time ago, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger threw a party at his home. All of hollywood and the music industry were there, both young and old. Lots of alcohol flowed and it became a raucusly good time.
At the end of the night, when he thought everyone had left, Jagger retired to his room, only to find that randy old goat Hugh Hefner was in his bed, having relations with actor Dennis Weaver. Shocked and disgusted, Jagger exclaimed...
...wait for it...
"Hey Hugh, get off of McCloud!"
I don't get it.
I think it is lost on anyone under forty...Dennis Weaver used to play a detective named McCloud. The Rolling Stones have a song with the lyrics "Hey you, get off of my cloud"...
Zing! Ow! Right in my good eye.
Ooooohhhhh. It's all starting to make sense now.
Zing! Ow! Right in my good eye!
I love generational humor...I used to work with a guy who was the quintessential baby boomer. When I wanted to pizz him off, I used to say "Hey wow! Did you know that Paul McCartney was in a band before "Wings"???
The NBC Sunday Mystery Movie...McCloud, McMillan & Wife, Columbo, and it was always on Sunday nights. I was just a young'un at the time, but my parents used to love that stuff...
As Maurice Chevalier used to sing, "Ah yes, I remember it well." My folks also watched that as well as a number of other shows & movies that help with post multi-faceted comments. :)))))
Well done, sir! Well done.
Interesting that Obozo promotes the wasting of food during thesee difficult times. This is typical of the party of hate...:)
Greets! We are having the most bizarre news story this AM. A fool has ended a car chase and is now jumping between two expensive homes ON THEIR ROOFS with a crowd of police ganging up on him....... What an idiot!
this fool wanders around on the roof, comes down to the gutter edge, exchanges words with the police, then turns around and climbs up to the ridge line......there are two policemen on one or the other of the two house roofs, now.
Hey, you kids, get off my roof!
STILL on the roofs.
I am getting my roots done this weekend, so I ask humbly that you humor my more-than-usual blonde moments.
Why did you tell Benn that you hoped he drove a Chevy on the "love meat" thread?
I will fully embrace my blondeness and admit that I wondered the same thing too.
I will join the blondes as I had the same question and can't see the video TWO posted...Enquiring minds want to know....
Can you view videos at all? If so, I'll post a link.
If you watched the Stupor Bowel, do you remember seeing any Chevy truck commercials?
QOE, no offense intended to your blonde Majesty. I was referencing a comment The Knight of Biddle made to me yesterday.
TWO & Sir Bid, ah yes, now it makes sense. That was a Super awesome commercial.
Sorry I'm late ....
"After twenty years of running and managing CNN's Eatocracy, Kat Kinsman happily reflects on her career, while her hubby reads a paper at a small cafe in Rome, where they have recently retired."
Is it just me or does it look like someone put a womans big head on a girls small body?
Good morning Klatschkies! It's Thursday! Weekend is just around the corner...
Should I keep an eye out for you on Saturday Jerv?
Morning !! Happy for you Truth ! And yes we are Richard :-)
Good morning all!
It's a great day, since there is no snow expected for a while in Denver, and I cruised through oxygen administration last night. Life is good!
Good morning! So we survived the "snow" here in the DMV. While I wouldn't mind a good snow to officially end winter with I prefer that stuff to happen when I'm warm at home and not at work.
I don't even know if what we got would even be considered worthy of putting the word snow in quotes. DC got nothing but rain. Silly weathermen!
we actually got snow in N. VA but the kind that sticks to the mulch and tips of grass...nothing more. It was rather entertaining watching people flee Tysons when the rain/sleet started after lunch :-)
How goes it Rich, where is everyone? – Klatch has been slow the past few days.
Hahaha! The best. I'll be the goofy bald headed dude in a Budweiser ballcap drooling.
Good Morning All.....We Gotz coffee and for some reason WD and I are singing " I Wear My Sunglasses At Night " 'cuz We are Kool.
