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.

      Howdee! How's things up yonder with y'all? Isn't "rainy Seattle" redundant? ;)

    Hello everyone...

    Blasted people keep scheduling meetings during the one hour that the network usage police are officially not looking.

    Looks like they're off and running on the vegan thread...I swear that once a month or so, Kat just likes to watch the wailing and gnashing of teeth...:)

    Good morning! spending the day at home in an attempt to catch up on database stuff, laundry, and all the amazing presents around my house.

    April 25, 2012 at 9:52 am |
    • AleeD®JainaJade

      Good morning, Mrs. Married Woman. ;) Have you opened all the presents yet?

      April 25, 2012 at 10:01 am |
      • JainaJade@AleeD

        nope, not even close. I think we have opened maybe 3, but all the envelopes. We had a problem with our WS registry at one point where duplicates/triplicates of some items were being "requested" so we have a fair amount of returns to do.

    Morning all! Somber mood around the ICU this morning. We had a celestial transfer of one of our long-time CF patients. Yet another name to add to our Remembrance Wall.

      Which makes me wondere what that person is feeling right now. Where is s/he, what is s/he thinking, feeling, seeing and experiencing...?

        I've often wondered that myself. Some of my co-workers think it's a little odd that when we're prepping the body I will still talk to the body and I always use warm water for the final bath. I figure if they are still lingering around somewhere then I want them to know they're still being cared for and respected. Plus I think it will keep them from haunting me.

          When we went through cadaver lab, our instructor made NO bones about how we WILL treat the bodies with respect and dignity. And rightly so.

        • Kat Kinsman

          That's incredibly thoughtful of you. It's noticed by the universe somehow.

          April 25, 2012 at 7:18 pm |
        • MicheleG™

          I agree with KK. Kindness will be noticed and rewarded. (Wish there was more of it in circulation.)

      "Celestial Transfer" is the most graceful, respectful way to say it that I've ever heard. Beautiful.

      • Queen of Everything@MG

        Celestial transfer or eternal discharge put a gentler spin on the bag 'em and tag 'em routine.

        April 25, 2012 at 10:26 am |
        • MicheleG™

          I'm all for the "gentler spin" (in any context, pretty much) whenever possible.

          I aim to please. Was either that or this...

    • JbJingles_from rainy Seattle@QoE

      I'm so sorry. That must be so hard and it takes a special person to do what you do...

    Howdy Ho again.

    I sympathize with Grandma up at the top. She probably just had her Social Security check reduced. And she needs a prescription renewed and she can't afford it now......

      Morning...What's shakin' on the left coast?

      April 25, 2012 at 9:09 am |
      • MicheleG™

        Hi there, sweet thang! Sometimes the left coast itself shakes. But at the moment we have a big, fat rain storm looming. In a few days YOU will be able to enjoy it, too!

      April 25, 2012 at 8:24 am |
      • Sir Biddle@RH

        How could you be hungry as you had a double serving like I got?

        April 25, 2012 at 8:27 am |
        • RichardHead@SirB

          It's only because your sooooo Special. :)) I haven't gotten any so far...fingers crossed.

          April 25, 2012 at 8:31 am |
        • Sir Biddle@RH

          I guess I've got that goin' for me, which is reaaaaallll nice.

          April 25, 2012 at 8:34 am |
    • AleeD®Sir Biddle, RichHead & All

      Password changed. Let's see if it makes a difference. I'm a little surprised you would complain about more v!agra ads, Sir Bid. ;)

      Good Morning Everybody.! Spam is definitely not my fave b'fast meat. Thick-sliced bacon, like we had in Maui. Mmmm. Paired with Kona coffee and fresh guava juice. Heaven.

    Good morning all, and by the look of today's picture, I think it is a good day to do something nice for the elderly.

    Good morning, everyone. Happy Wednesday, and this is virtual Friday for me, I'm taking a couple of days off so I won't be around. Have fun, everyone!

    • Truth™@Mary

      You headed NE to your favorite long weekend haunt? Safe travels if so.

      April 25, 2012 at 8:16 am |
      • Mary Shannon

        Nope, hanging out here, doing some projects like getting the basement cleaned out and stuff like that.

        April 25, 2012 at 8:33 am |
        • Truth™@Mary

          Wish I were there to help. I've been clearing stuff out as well. Something liberating about it.

    • RichardHead@Mary

      What about the Furries? Remember the children!!

      April 25, 2012 at 8:26 am |
      • Mary Shannon

        Furries will be happy to have me not working for a few days, they don't like having me on the computer all day.
