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.

    Anyone feel the earthquake that hit in Kentucky this morning? It was a 4.3. Newsworthy I'd think......

      My old friends who still live there sure did. Haven't heard from my Dad yet. KY always gets hit with quakes!

        Wow! I was surprised to NOT find it elsewhere on CNN. (Welcome to, er,....California!)

      Is this NSFW?

      • Sir Biddle

        Yes, everything from youtube is safe for work. Only the screen shot looks bad.

    You know that you work with an unpopular person when people look more forward to HER vacation than their own.

        The Office Narcissist (TON) is taking two and a half weeks off and assistant and I are absofreakinlutely giddy over a fairly PITA free workplace for a while....Will be like not having to babysit for six hours a day...

          HA! We've got one of those here too. She is on maternity leave and I am crossing my fingers she chooses to be a stay-at-home mom. Likelihood of it is nil, but one can hope.

        You have my sympathies!

        Unfortunately there ARE way too many self absorbed types out there. Makes you wonder how they survive......(yeah, I know: at our expense!)

    Enjoy the hike and savor that time with the young'uns. Sounds like fun. I hope you get good weather.

    Looks like you got some bites on the cork sniffing comment. Oddly though, I was at dinner this week and when we ordered a bottle, the server handed me the cork. Would have felt quite the fool had I not known why.

        Just make sure they don't leave a "D' out of the first one. You might be get rear-ended more often.

    Goody, starting my Friday being moderated. Here's what I said (but "built up" was a different word that I forgot was banned):

    Good morning everyone on this lovely Friday! My big weekend plans are to get my house back in order, stuff like get all the recycling out to the bins (kinda built up during the storms) and just generally get back to normal. Of course, Sunday is Football Day so my puttering will be limited to time-outs and half time. Go Giants!!

    Good morning Klatschers and cork sniffers! Breakfast burritos and Bloody Marys in honor of Texas Chaser and WD. Have a great Friday!

      Good am, Jerv Thanks for breakfast, now I'm all energized to go rake the last my leaves. I think bloody marys should be a Fri ritual , yes? Have a good day!

      November 9, 2012 at 8:17 am |
      • Jerv@ M T Nest

        Agreed! Every year I pull between 60 to 80, 55 gallon sized bags of leaves out of my yard. Sucks. Thank you and have a great day as well.

        November 9, 2012 at 9:35 am |
        • M T Neat

          Dang, Jerv, that's a lot of leaves! Your trees or the neighbors? I have a few small trees, my neighbor has a freakin' forest & lucky me...need I say more? I use 39 gal sized bags, I average 70 bags at the end of it all. 1 good thing, the sun is shining & I had a great Bloody Mary to start the day...lol!

          November 9, 2012 at 10:19 am |
        • Truth™@Jerv, MTNest

          Dayum! That's a lot of bags to BUY let alone FILL. Where do you live on The Ponderosa???

          That's like a walking argument for an HOA...
