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.

    Juuuust in case anyone's wondering - I'm still in Vegas and Sarah is mainly on Newtown reporting duty, so Eatocracy updates may not be fast & furious. Miss y'all!

      Ditto - hope our favorite flamenons are hanging in there during this tragedy. I have a special treat for you all tomorrow as we *try* to get back to normalcy. Get your cookie tins ready.

        If you need to get away from the media invasion of Newtown, drive down I-84 west to exit three and have dinner at Chuck's steak house, just off Lake Avenue. Worth the drive. From anywhere.

      How goes it your highness?
      I was speculating earlier if The Royal Family was in today's photo...

      • Queen of Everything@Truth White fabric in our house doesn't stay white for long, certainly not long enough for a picture to be taken. Also, the boys would have fought over who got to carry the tray to the bedroom and it would have ended up dropped on the floor about halfway down the hall.

      Asian food and a movie (probably Les Miserables) or two with the fiance, and probably my mom and brother.

    I can't believe the sick *@%$ at the Westboro Baptist Church plan to protest funerals in CT today? That is just wrong on some many levels.

        Good comment. How much of this %$#^&* must we have to deal with before the fools go away?

        This particular set of funerals should be left alone.

        Has any one of those twits ever heard of or learned about courtesy, respect and simple decency?
        There IS a time to simply keep your mouth shut and your opinions to yourself.

          Protest? What's there to protest? If ignorance is bliss, these mo-fo's must be euphoric.

      This is a new all time low for humanity! I wouldn't be surprised if they were met with some "resistance", this has struck so many accross the nation as so horrific. Really? 5, 6, and 7 year olds at Christmas time!! I made the mistake of looking at the profiles of them on the main site yesterday, then sat here sulking and wiping away tears of saddness. I have 4, 6, and 7 year old grandkids...

      December 18, 2012 at 12:00 pm |
      • MicheleG™

        Agree. Mine are 2 and a half years old and 6 weeks old.

    • Truth™@Biddle, AleeD, JBJ, MicheleG

      One of my building tenants is the Anti Defamation League, who routinely is in the news for controversial things. As a result, Westboro staged a protest outside the building last year. Now my building has a balcony off of the seventh floor, so I basically hung out during the protest and was able to spit on them unseen for twenty minutes. I only wish it could have been done with other bodily wastes.

      December 18, 2012 at 12:30 pm |
      • AleeD®@MicG, Sir Bid, Turth & JBelle

        You could have, but they'd nab you with DNA testing no matter which fluid you used. D@mn 21 century technology!

        December 18, 2012 at 12:41 pm |
      • Sir Biddle

        I like your style. Would have taken it a step further than spit, but understand the pickle it would have put you in. I've where some anarchist group has hacked into the WBC and public release all the members public info including SSN, addresses and phone numbers. Also read that a few motorcycle gangs and a nazi group will be protect the town to keep them out. Amazing.

        Wish the whole WBC group could get one-way tickets to our secret floating prison ships.

    Top of the morning folks! How are all the Flamenons doing this fine Tuesday morning? Happy holidays to everyone!

    Good morning all...I hope everyone is enjoying their week. Cute pic. It the Royal Family?

    December 18, 2012 at 8:41 am |
    • HarleyGirl

      Good morning all! Yeah, that is a cute pic. In reality, the kid on Mom's back, falls on bed, tray goes flying, and coffee and orange juice stains are shared by all, and all smiles turn to frowns. That is probably not the best idea when kids are involved. I hope everyone has a great day! Happy Holidays!!!

    • The Witty One@Truth

      I'm going to go with no for one reason. Queeny would be having hubby rub her feet and thing one and two would be dressed in little butlers outfits, serving her the coffee :)

  10. Sir Biddle

    I applaud the suburban couple above for slipping the kids Valium in order to take a calm and clean picture. If only breakfast in bed could be that simple. At Biddle Mansion, the white sheets would have coffee stains within minutes and there would be tears soon to follow for someone jumping on someone else's head.

    Morning crew!

      The coffee and OJ wouldn't have even made it down hall in the Castle.

    Good am! Pecan, cinnamon pancakes for all. Of course w/bacon on the side. The girl in the pic, see that smile on her face? Yeah, that was me yesterday when I filled my car up for $3.12 a gallon! Now let's see how much of it I use while power shopping today..& I'm not coming home till its done. (I hope I get done today. Lol) I say, "Good day"!

    December 18, 2012 at 7:34 am |
  12. Jerv

    I scored gas for 2.95 a gallon yesterday. Boo-rah! Grilled bacon, egg and cheese biscuits with hot chocolate. Let's have a great day!

    December 18, 2012 at 7:27 am |
    • M T Nest

      Hey Jerv! I guess we were typing about the same time. We can save my pancakes & bacon for tomorrow. Low gas prices, what's up w/that? Not complaining at all cuz tis the season to be broke! (Haha)

      December 18, 2012 at 7:38 am |
      • Jerv@MTN

        Can never have too much bacon. And cinnamon pancakes sound wonderful, thank you very much. Interesting how we both had food and gas on the brain this morning. I'm sure SirB will have something to say about that. Hehe.

        December 18, 2012 at 7:48 am |
        • M T Nest

          Oh too funny! Well, food & gas do go hand in hand sometimes! Have a great day, Jerv...I'm off to finish my Xmas shopping. Thanks for the chuckle!

          December 18, 2012 at 7:54 am |
        • M T Nest

          Btw, (speaking of gas. lol) I tryed that WolfBrand chili (it was talked about the other day here) yesterday, good stuff for something out of a can. Just enough heat, but not too hot. Ok, now I'm outta here. :)

          December 18, 2012 at 8:00 am |
    • The Witty One@Jerv

      What's up man? How is pops doing?
