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 an independent producer that just finished a cooking series that is now airing for free on Hulu. It's a docu-style series all about Family, Food, Culture & History. I'm doing my best to spread the word and it's ALOT of work so I thought if anyone reads this they might wanna watch the show. I made 13 episodes hulu.com/real-food-real-kitchens Thanks!
1 Hunnert and 1-The number of BAD words I was yelling at Tony Romo...SIGH.
Ok folks, I am outta here. May check in over the weekend, so stay safe all!
Lol! Have a great w/e everyone!
Enjoy the weekend kids!
Oooh, oooh, my beer koozies came in today! i heart eatocracy beer koozies are coming...
what's a "koozie?"
Those styrofoam thing that keep cans cold.
(not sure how I knew that, I just did...)
ding ding ding, we have a winner!
This just in, Dallas QB Tony Romo was cited by police for creating a disturbance at a local Victoria's Secret store when he exceeded his charge limit, and was unable to buy br@s, frilly p@nties, and a darling nightie for the locker room. Upon his card being declined, he lay on the floor and wept, crying that he needed a hug from Troy Aikman.
You may now return to your normally scheduled Eatocracy.
In case you haven't left for the day WIT, this one goes out to you:
HA! I was stuck in meetings :(
Just realized the chick in the picture has more gums than teeth.
Good for him.
The gum to teeth ratio is waaaaayyyyy off.
This storm will either wind up being huge or nothing. Everyone is getting crazed, even work sent out an email advising everyone to update their emergency contacts (points to Truth) and giving out survival tips. Yikes.
Stay safe, and watch those downed power lines. Best to you and the young'uns. Best do a grocery run before the festivities begin.
I must concur with My Brother.......Football helmet on,Pads,face paint and a New Yawk attitude. It'll be Azzholes and elbows at WallyWorld. Treats for the Furries,Please.
I be Happy.....Just got moderated for the first time in a long time......Just like old Times. HA !!
Thanks to both Alee and Truth. At least if the electricity goes out I have 4 library books left to read, and whatever's on the Kindle...note to self, charge the Kindle.
Bring in everything from outside that isn't planted in the ground or mounted securely to something. Fingers crossed & positive thoughts.
Mom...We gotz to go REAL Bad. Did you buy treats?
Two boxes of treats – check. 15 or so lbs of furry food – check. Two furries snoozing to make sure they're all caught up on sleep for the storm – check. Towels to dry them after going outside and getting drenched – check. I think the furries are all set.
Today marks a significant anniversary of one of the greatest moments in sports. JDizz will appreciate this:
WORD. I saw 1986 World Series and immediately thought of the Mets.
The 2000 Subway Series is a forgettable one. D@mn Yankees.
Good morning all!
Getting a late start today, as I was hit with my USDA requirement of tomfoolery when I got the the office this morning.
How is everyone doing today?
Well,It's about time......NOW the Gang is all here..except for Queenie-SIGH. The snow slowed you down right? :))
Hey You......How's things on the left coast? Soooo,I guess your a Grandma now?
What's going on! How's life in the MHC?
My day started with a roofing contractor, a overloaded truck and a garage with an eight foot clearance. Good times!
On the Bright side-You now have an open ended trailer--it'll fit under the beams. Stooopid Truck Drivers.
We missed you, can you tell its been a crazy fun morning around here? I hope your garage is ok.
And for my weekend project...trying to replicate this from many years ago. :)
That's pretty ambitious there, Lady...Enjoy!
I am SO looking forward to a project like that in a few years when the Little Biddles get older.
Start them out slow...I put together small gingerbread houses for the grandkids at Christmas, then let them go crazy decorating them! The little ones have a great time, and the older ones get creative and put toghether some nice ones! It's the memories they will cherish... :)
That is a most awesome food sculpture, Mi'lady! Did it taste good, too? ;)
Thanks. I don't know if it tasted good or not, by the time I finish making something like this I have no interest in eating it...chocolate graham cracker walls, and rock hard icing to hold it together, sounds like a trip to the dentist I don't need. Will bring it in next week for the crew here and if they want to partake, OK by me!
How about this project? :
IT blocked this, dare I ask?
God damn you! You Rick Rolled me again!
Hahahahahaha-That's why we Love having you around here Lil' Buddy. Take care and have a Great Weekend.
Aww, darn. Got one, though!
You and everyone else have a great weekend. I'm leaving early to get drunk and... yeah.
TGIF and a Freaky Friday indeed, looks like the class is full. Tried to post from the casa this morning and nuttin happened, weird indeed. We got to try to sleep through 35 mph winds last night/this morning, but no Frankenstorm heading our way. Did anyone see my post yesterday on the kid trick or treating thread?? A younger Kat in kostume perhaps? Yes or no?
Maybe Odie had Gas?
Ha, ha, ha. Actually I took care of his little problem with some imodium type stuff the vet gave us... :)
Top of the mother freaking morning people! How goes life for everyone? Howdy to all the new faces round here.
Here is my update for anyone interested. Met girl. Went through 10 months of crazy. Broke up with girl. Bought new BMW. Will now start partying with hot russian chicks again until I realize that's not what I want to do with my life. Repeat.
There are hot Russian chicks?
Oh, yes. I saw MANY of them when I was in South Korea.
You Party Animal-The Queen still wants You and Tazer to hook up.How 'ya been buddy?
I think RH is right, it must be Friday the old gang is all here. I'll have to live my life through you vicariously. Careful of the Russian chicks, though wildcats, most have tons of deep rooted anger in them.
I must concur with SirB even tho Truth has not made an appearance yet. TWO–watch out for Russian Chicks that pound their shoes on your head-unless you like that type of stuff like Biddle does.
@Sir Biddle the Still Young – I can deal with deep seated anger issues since I am only partying with them. It comes out in good ways...sometimes. A lot of my married friends live vicariously through me. It puts a lot of pressure on me to have fun adventures!
@JBJ – Let's go with Eastern European instead :)
@Rich – I totally would if we lived on the same side of the country. And it depends on which head they are pounding...if you know what I mean ;)
A trampling fetish, that just sounds painful typing.
No spinning and no trampling for Sir Biddle.
Good to "see" ya. Party your azz off and don't look back!
Profound Lil' Buddy-Pee Wee would concur.
Words of wisdom my friend and certainly heeded :)
It MUST be Friday 'cuz we are getting crazy-just like old times. I saw where you had a head cold-Don't forget...Ice Cold Chocolate Milk and Chicken Noodle Soup. Works every time. Have a Great Weekend–Get Well Soon.
Last night, I was thinking about this week's game, and I just had to have a good cry. I'm just not feeling good, and even after getting a mani/pedi and buying myself some flowers, I just don't feel good abou it.
What would Oprah do?
Hahahahaha--I Likez it. Thanks for the laugh.
OK-so I'm gonna do my civic Dooty today and early vote for The Election.In Texas,you won't be asked for your Drivers license like what happened to Obozo in Chicago yesterday. My apologies to Truth for politicizing a Food Blog.
Good morning folks! Happy National Pumpkin Day! Who would have known. lol I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. May your favorite football team win this weekend. I wonder who will have bragging rights between RichardHead & Mary after the game. Time will tell. Have a good one all!
Ohhhhhh-Is That a Tight End?
They'll be serving Jaguar meat at Lambeau Field on Sunday.
One medium rare. Order up!
@Harleygal – right back at ya! I'm excited to watch my Steelers play on Sunday – they're wearing "throw back" uniforms and it will be a sight! Enjoy your weekend – I'm stuck with a sick hubby!
Good morning to you, too! My Mom was always a huge Steeler fan. Sick hubby, huh? Is he a whiner, or a leave me alone kind of guy? lol I hope he feels better soon, for his sake as well as yours! Good luck to your Steelers.
@Harleygal – I'm not so lucky – he's a whiner. Bleh! Asked him eo vacuum for me and he said he has a cold. No shyt! LOL
Lol! I hear ya, sister. I always say to my hubby, "in case I die, this plug goes into the wall, this switch turns it on, all you have to do is go back & forth". Rocket science, it's not. May your husband's cold be a short one, and you don't get it.
Good morn & yay, it's finally Fri! Thanks for the am laugh, nice way to start the day. :) I have a hott date with my rake & a big box of leaf bags. (Sorry @ Autumn Leaf...lol) At least, now, I have something to "smirk" about while I'm out there "playing" in the leaves! I'll have to check back in a few hours for another laugh. Good day!
Silly--Just get a leaf blower and send the leaves over to your neighbors lawn. It works every time...Just ask Jerv.
I never understood leaf blowers. They don't make linoleum blowers for your floors.
Electric leaf blowers work great on hardwood and linoleum. Don't use the gas ones though as they tend to stink up the place. They are also great for getting those hard to reach places.
Do you need help with any of those place young man? ~_~
You can take my snowblower when you pry her from my cold dead hands....
@MT – I'm glad you will be thinking of me while raking LOL! I use a blower – dunno if it's easier or not. I'll come over and jump in your piles :D. Enjoy your weekend!
OK, I just spit water all over my screen when I read that! :D
First I'm wiping "coconut frosting" off my ear, now I'm helping you wipe off your screen. Seems as though we're squirting fluids all over the place today. ~_~
For your Friday enjoyment!
On Sunday--Barbie Manning will need a Texas T in Both hands.......if they haven't been ripped off by 6:15 CST. :)) Talkin' Smack in football–is that legal?
Funny, I thought of you when I posted the song, figured you might need a drink in your hand on Sunday when your team gets whopped.
Thank You-–That reminds me to pick up some Solo cups at Wally World-in case I'm throwing things at the T.V.
Here is some Texas wisdom for you and ALL Yankees........Don't squat when wearing Spurs. :))
You ready for the Birds and the Red&Gold on Monday?
Who's playing-Falcon's,Ravens..Eagles..Lions? Either way S.F is pizzed off now and should kick butt the rest of the year.
Now, Mr. J, that's a totally different song for Solo cups, and not one that I will post because I think it reflects very badly on that particular artist's abilities as a performer and country music in general. But you get the idea.
Red Solo Cups? How about " I'll Never Smoke Weed with Willie Again "--One of my favorite country and Weeestern songs. :))
Good morning all. Did a bit of lounge-cleaning on yesterday's thread. Coffee's on and Sir Biddle left some Zingers. They're probably still fresh ... thru 2213. ;)
Things are probably going to be pretty crazy 'round work today. The VP/GM /interim eng mgr is back after being on personal leave for 2 weeks. Hope y'all have a Freaky Friday (and you know what I mean). ~_~
TGIF--WassssssssUp Sista'!!!!! Ummmmm......was the VP in rehab for a couple weeks? Thanks for cleaning the place up-I know,I've been slacking lately.
AleeD – you still have a little red coconut frosting behind your left ear.
You left yourself WIDE open Bro.....I can't say it. HA!!
Was going to find that clip earlier and got distracted. Great minds
Baaad Biddle, that's not frosting. ~_~ It only looks red because of the reflection from my hair.
Glazed Donuts for breakfast? We are talkin' about Food–right?
She prefers cream filled but you didn't hear me say that as I ain't one to gossip.
Very Good idea. Perfect for me.
