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.

      Goooood Morning Bro! Feeling froggy on Friday. ;) I've always wanted my own time machine. This'll be as close as it gets 'til Dr. Who retires and leaves me his TARDIS.

      Happy Friday to all!

          I think they left out the "tickle" part.

          I must concur...Alway's read The Owners Manual FIRST.

          Let's try this....
          Is the device turned ON?
          Do you have the device plugged in?
          Have you turned the device OFF,waited one minute and then turn said device back on?
          Are YOU having trouble understanding the Tech person from Pakistan?
          If all else fails.....pigeon carriers are available on the roof.

      Bbbbut, tell them we need you here! Non-Eatocracy type stuff huh? Is it top secret or will you share??

        Oh – I was writing about Baby Boomers and gay marriage and Sarah was writing about presidential fashion and murderers.

      I get "getting busy" (no not like that). But I'm interested in what you and Dave were testing a day or so ago. Wassup? Are we getting something new?

    Good afternoon all! Ummm, interesting comments. Had to re-read them to make sure my med's weren't messing w/my!
    @Mary Shannon, Thanks for asking how I was feeling. I'm doing much better! Dr said he was treating me "aggressively" (no, not like that, haha) & I should get better in no time. I'm just glad to start getting my hearing back. Went almost a week w/o it, that was awful. Any-hoo, thanks again! :)

    Good morning, and T-G-I-F! Well, it's my Friday, and four days off work, but not fun stuff to do in Phoenix...get to do that whole parent talk about wills, wishes, burial, etc... I think I'll make it easy on my kids and have everything pre-arranged, spelled out in a secret box they can open when I'm gone...

      Are you still using the comcast address?

      January 17, 2013 at 10:55 am |
    • Meg Ryan@Tom

      Oops, there have been so many. Which Tom are you? comcast or hotmail?

      I can quote every line from that movie.

        Not sure I would admit that small fact.

        January 17, 2013 at 11:38 am |
        • Meg Ryan

          Ditto. That's back when my lips were naturally pouty.

          I couldn't tell, the lights were off.

          I'm a real man.

          And I've seen every episode of Star Trek....every series.



          I see.

        • Meg Ryan@Sir Biddle

          Pouty lips are critical because they keep well-trimmed 'stache hairs from poking you in your poker.

    Morning crew. Busier than a one armed wallpaper hanger this week, but busy is better than nothing.

    Hey, guys.


    Hey, guys.

    72 more hours until game time.


    Sorry, everyone else. :(

    Draft is soon.

    • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

      Also, saw NGF new beau...

      LOL. HAHAHA!

      Dude has to be at LEAST 5 years older than her. Just in case anyone knew, I am 10 years younger than her. I smell $$$ in there somewhere.

      January 17, 2013 at 9:48 am |
      • Sir Biddle

        Look at you cougar chaser. She didn't waste any time finding a replacement. Sounds like you're better off without her.

        January 17, 2013 at 9:52 am |
        • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

          I was surprised. Took her all of six weeks.

          3 years.

          Six weeks.

          January 17, 2013 at 10:11 am |
        • Sir Biddle

          Tell you what. Slip on over to the Lotus Spa and ask for Miss Lee. She'll treat you reeeeeeaaallll nice and you leave happy. She'll make those 3 years seem like nothing.

          January 17, 2013 at 10:29 am |
        • AleeD®@Sir Biddle & Jdizz♫♫

          At the Lotus spa, you may just meet the NNFG. Doesn't her (heartless) departure make her the GD eff'n OGF?

          January 17, 2013 at 11:09 am |
        • Sir Biddle

          I wouldn't say the Lotus is the place to make a girlfriend for any more than about an hour. Just sayin.

          Afraid to look at work. Canadian website, eh?

    Morning. RH, think good thoughts of Jimmy Buffett and Changes in Lat*tude, that's about the only way you're going to find hot, blazing, sweating sun these days. Feel better!!

      Good Morning Sista'...nice choice. I saw Elvis last night...he's a delivery driver for Domino's pizza. It's snowing and sleeting and yucky and I HATE winter. Sigh...I feel better now.

      January 17, 2013 at 7:16 am |
      • AleeD®@Frozen Rich

        If you saw Elivis last nite, maybe you SHOULD get out of the cold for a while. Here *pouring* have some hi-test coffee, no fluff. Can you find a run that'll bring you to "floridor" so you can thaw out?

        January 17, 2013 at 7:21 am |
        • RichardHead@AleeD

          Thanks for the java...I need SUN, hot ,blazing and sweating SUN.
