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.

    The US postal service announced today that starting later this year, there would be no mail service on Saturday.

    CNN Eatocracy blogger AleeD went into immediate panic mode, until she learned that this referred to mail deliveries and not male service.

    You may now return to your regularly scheduled Eatocracy.

      Wish I could help you there Darlin', but...

      Virginia Beach, Williamsburg – Been there.
      Orlando (Kissimmee) – Not a fan of humidity
      Atlantic City – I don't gamble
      Las Vegas – See atlantic City
      Sedona – Not a hippie/stoner/new ageer
      Cape Cod – Been there
      Branson – Would rather be beaten for a long weekend.
      Myrtle Beach – Been there
      Gatlinburg – See Branson

      Now if you had Tokyo, Taipei, Hong Kong, Beijing, Seoul or Fukuoka, we'd be talkin'...

          We have someone in our Florida office who now refers to people from your fine state as "Floridiots"...present company excluded I'm sure. I guess she can say this as she is one of them?? o.O

          February 6, 2013 at 1:08 pm |
        • AleeD®@™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™

          Floridorks could be one, too. I don't know the type of people your friend deals with, but we all aren't Floridolts (and yet another). Some of us natives prefer the term "Cracker." My favorite is how one refers to someone from Maine: Maineiacs.

          February 6, 2013 at 1:57 pm |
        • Turth™@AleeD, JBJ

          We refer to those types as "Clodoradans"

        LOL on three.

        OK, no Asia available but we do have New Caledonia (Sout Pacific), lots of Europe, Canada, Argentina, Venezuela, Columbia, Mexico and Austraila...I just didn't figure anyone would be interested in last minute airfares to these locales$$

        February 6, 2013 at 1:07 pm |

          "... last minute affairs"...?

          I should have known you would read it that way! ;)

        Reminder that Sedona is, culturally, a layered town. There are solid citizens, the artists. those in city governance, those who service the tourists, as well as the dippsy doodle new ager types and no one gives them much respect. There's a lot more to Sedona than the twit crowd. I'd move there if I had the bucks. Cheers!

          "Those who service the tourists"...?!

          Maybe worth a drive down after all...:)

    I recently learned that September 29th is National Coffee Day! (It's never too early to start planning!) As a matter of fact, I blogged about it: . If you're a coffee lover, it's a good day to mark on your calendar because there are many opportunities to get free or discounted coffee on that day.

    Fans of the popular board game "Monopoly" have voted to eliminate the iron token, and replace it with a cat.

    You may now return to your regularly scheduled Eatocracy.

      Sweet. Now the dog has something to eat.

      That means someone could have a monopoly on some pu$$y ...

      Oh wait ... that's backwards.

        THAT my dear, is a commodity that has been traded like currency since the dawn of time...;)

        February 6, 2013 at 12:50 pm |
        • AleeD®@Turth™

          Would that be the same "dawn" as the dawn of crack? Apropos for the subject matter.

          February 6, 2013 at 3:05 pm |
        • Turth™@AleeD

          It amazes me where your mind goes....;)

        • MicheleG™

          Ditto with Turth's comment. Aleey Dee you are a good"read."

          I can guess where you will go with that one?

    • DJChilllyPhil, Jukebox King & Cold Stone God

      Wait. They voted off the iron and not the thimble? That's surprising.

      I'd think the iron sees more use than the thimble, but it looks like I'm wrong.

        Unless the cat is sitting down, it's going to look alot like the Scottie dog. I always wanted to get rid of the wheelbarrow because it would never stay upright.

    Question for the morning – the US Postal Service has decided to stop delivering "letters" on Saturday. When was the last time you received something important via US Mail?

    For me, its been a long, long time.

      Several times a month. All our bills are handled thru the USPS. That has more to do with hubby than me. ;)

    Good morning all, from an unseasonably warm Denver. Supposed to hit the upper fifties again today.

    Good morning! Early conference call this morning, then another later today, then taking Dad to dinner and a presentation on local history at my library. It gets him out of the house and interacting with others, so while its not my first choice for the evening, its worth it.

    Anyone else doing anything fun this week?

      Gotta love Soundgarden. Reminds me of the summer of 94 living in Boulder, CO painting houses.
