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.

    I am assuming since Kat is out of town, you are trying to mentor all posts. Somethings have slipped by....language and general intent.

      We've got two of them to deal with now. Angela and Ann gela.

        I am thinking the daylong drinking binge has affected vapor's typing...

        • RichardHead@Truth

          I must concur......Two fingered typing is sooooo yesterday....tho the Queen gets away it. :))

      • RichardHead@ABK

        Double letters mean.....You can figure it out.

        August 2, 2012 at 5:01 pm |
        • angrybabykitty

          the second personality of Angela is much meaner. I saw comments wishing that I got hit by a truck.

          Barbecue. Please. American tastes are so unrefined and bland. Like little children with your McNuggets.

          These seem like the same trolls from the Marquee blog. DavidW dealt with them.

    Hello everyone!

    Well, the week of no coffee (which I tend to have with cream and flavor syrup) and going mostly cold turkey on a bunch of other things I like (due to the high BP issue) seems to have lead to a 4 lb weight loss at my weekly Weight Watchers meeting.

      well good for you! Cheery stuff is GOOD!

    Howdy ho! and GOOOOOOOD Morning!

    Good news! My lifelong friend came out of her heart surgery yesterday in good shape. Whew!

    August 2, 2012 at 11:45 am |
    • AleeD®@MicG™

      Congratulations to you and to her! How's things on your side of the continent?

        Things out thisaway are good though we had a 400 plus acre wildfire out in these parts yesterday. They had 4 water dropping helicopters and 6 aerial tankers working the fire. The whole fleet was out in force.

        One of our friends had his photos picked up by the local press so he is jazzed about that!

        Southern Calif does have its combustible elements.

        August 2, 2012 at 12:42 pm |
      • MicheleG™

        Thanks! I will let my friend know she had many people rooting for her!

    HEB Houston Blend. Has a hint of coconut. Not too strong but strong enough.

    Sheesh. Just received about 5 different prescriptions for kids all under 10. Ritalin, Metadate, other amphetamines. Let's drug all our kids.

    • DJChilllyPhil, Jukebox King & Cold Stone God@JDizz

      It's sad to see how things are going... And they're worried about ILLEGAL drug use in kids! =P

    Morning! Is my seat at the bar still open?

    Looks like vapor's long lost cousin has found the Klatsch, eh? Let the games begin.

    August 2, 2012 at 10:24 am |
    • Truth™

      Welcome back and let's not feed the troll. S/He types as though happy hour has already begun.

      August 2, 2012 at 10:28 am |
      • SeaBee™ @ Truth

        I don't plan on it.
        Sorry it's been a while! I am so busy with the new job that I haven't time to hang out much.

        August 2, 2012 at 10:32 am |
      • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

        Ha! Sure does.

        August 2, 2012 at 10:47 am |
        • angrybabykitty

          Goodness, I log off for a few hours and return to the troll madness. Wow

          August 2, 2012 at 12:11 pm |

        HERE it is! Illiterate spelling and non existent grammar. Typical, limited, and so predictable.

        Standard protocol: ignore and isolate. That is all.

      • Fire Department

        Tenement-style fire suppression: surround & drown. Works on trolls, too.

      Whats up SeaBee?

      You seat is always open ... wait that didn't come out right.
      Welcome back (that's better)! Whatcha been up to?

    Moderated....just an example of what I was trying to tell Angela. We don't tolerate that kind of stuff on this thread, we are friends who share the general day to day of our lives. Please don't pollute the thread with your nonsense.

    August 2, 2012 at 10:19 am |
    • Mary Shannon

      The only answer you seem to need is where to find a course on spelling.

      August 2, 2012 at 11:04 am |
  10. Mary Shannon

    Sorry, but we don't tolerate your kind of attitude on this thread. Take your nastiness back to wherever you came from.

    Good Morning Crew

    How goes it on this beautiful Thursday?!?!

    August 2, 2012 at 10:04 am |
    • JainaJade@SirB

      Good morning! how are the little Biddles doing today?!?

      August 2, 2012 at 10:15 am |
      • Sir Biddle@JJ

        They are doing well. Lil Biddle is still overflowing with energy and baby Biddle is eating, sleeping and pooping his days away to his hearts content. Very busy and feel like Mama and I are two ships passing in the night, but know its short-term.

        How goes your garden?

        August 2, 2012 at 10:34 am |
        • JainaJade@SirB

          Garden is doing well! My squash are rallying so all hope is not quite lost with them. The tomatoes are still insane, and the peppers are starting to slow down. How are the cukes? still in need of some pickling recipes?!?

          August 2, 2012 at 2:14 pm |
        • Sir Biddle@JJ

          Tomatoes going nuts here too as well as the cukes. A coworker gave me a refrigerator pickle recipe I am going to try soon. Pretty much vinegar, sugar and oninon. Will see how it goes and keep you posted.

    Good morning! The sun is shining, humidity is building, ahh, typical NY in the summer!! I want those 78 degree days back!!

    August 2, 2012 at 9:47 am |
  13. Truth™

    Good morning all, and best wishes to TX4U and ABK...still sending the positive vibes your way.

    ABK, it looks like we were trolled by someone who was drinking heavily. Angela seems none too bright.

    August 2, 2012 at 9:39 am |
    • angrybabykitty

      They must have had a nice stash of alcohol to still be carrying on after this long.

      August 2, 2012 at 12:13 pm |

    Good morning! Sun is finally shining again in the DMV :-) This weekend begins the month of total insanity, Friday night will be only "weekend" night for the next 5wks or so that hubby and I are both sleeping at home...

    Goooood morning Kind Klatschers! I'm enjoying watching the Limpix: mens diving and such. ~_~

    abk, do your best to ignore the trolls .... or eff with them 'til their head explodes. ^_^ They will eventually be hoisted with their own petards and be banned from the blog.

    Nothing as flaccid as a troll can ruin the Lounge, the camaraderie we have or the friendships forged here. Nothing.

    August 2, 2012 at 7:24 am |
    • angrybabykitty

      @AleeD- thanks! I will just stay out of it with the troll. Hubby was begging to smart off back, but I don't want to waste time on such. Enjoy the Olympics!

      August 2, 2012 at 8:09 am |
      • angrybabykitty

        Also glad to hear that ignorant trolls can't ruin the friendships here :)

        August 2, 2012 at 8:12 am |
  16. angrybabykitty

    Good morning everyone! Seems as Truth & I gained a troll yesterday. It followed us from the chicken thread to yesterday's klatsch. Hope it doesn't ruin things here today.

    August 2, 2012 at 7:04 am |
    • RichardHead@ABK & TX4U

      Good Morning Ladies.....How's the shoulder doing? TX4U-Any good News? No Worries on the trolls....This ain't our first rodeo.

      August 2, 2012 at 7:23 am |
      • angrybabykitty

        The shoulder is sore :'( but at least I'm on the road to recovery now. Hubby is getting a new car to replace the wrecked one. Hopefully I can go home today. As for the troll, I really have no idea what I said that warranted such an incoherent rant. Oh well..

        And @TX4U- hope you get good news!

        August 2, 2012 at 8:07 am |
        • AleeD®abk

          I'm glad you're on the mend. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get to go home today. Won't you miss hospital food? ^_^

          August 2, 2012 at 8:20 am |
        • angrybabykitty

          @AleeD- oh yes! I will miss the bland cardboard "food"

          August 2, 2012 at 4:04 pm |

        Waitin on a phone call ;)

        August 2, 2012 at 8:42 am |

    Hope everyone has a Wonderful day !!! Looks like a Party Klatsch goin on :-)

    August 2, 2012 at 5:08 am |
    • angrybabykitty

      Hope you have a wonderful day too! Let's enjoy our party!

      August 2, 2012 at 7:02 am |

        :-) Hi. Everything is up in the air –more info later – fingers crossed ;)
