    Due to unusually high citizen apathy, tomorrow's celebration of "National Cherry Pie Day" has been cancelled. In it's stead, we will be observing "National Vienna Sausage Day", which polled much more popular.

    You may now return to your regularly scheduled Eatocracy.

  4. Turth™, with a Question Of The Day...

    Meant to post this up here...

    Ok, Since Mary Shannon brought up odd viewing choices, this gives me an EXCELLENT Question Of The Day:

    What is your favorite television guilty pleasure?

    February 19, 2013 at 2:20 pm |
    • AleeD®@QOD

      I never feel guilty from pleasures. ~_~

      February 19, 2013 at 2:33 pm |
    • Mary Shannon

      Ok, I'll go first since I already admitted to Cajun Justice, what can I say, it was during the tv series break and everything was repeats. I learned all kinds of things about the bayou from that show :-)

      As for guilty viewing pleasure, I admit to watching some of the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, not every season, but certain seasons. There, I admit it....

      Except for sports, I don't watch much TV anymore. A lot of Netflix and Madden gaming

    • Turth™, with a Question Of The Day...

      Ok, mine:
      SVU or NCIS marathons on USA.

      When TBS or TNT re-run "Independence Day" or "Twister", two of the 1990s best popcorn flicks.

      Anything on daytime...if you ever want to feel GREAT about your own life, catch an hour of daytime television. I don't care if it is two (or more) uneducated women fighting over which village idiot if the father of their kid, or any of those hokey dating shows where mismatched people have to spend a day together (extra funny if booze is involved), or the trash talk shows, where Ricki, Doprah or Judge Judy interview this world's sideshow members.

    Viva Los Flamenon! Kat – There are many, many reasons why we matter, thank you for going to bat for us!

    And what is this that RH helped you with your silkies?? Surprised Ms. AleeD missed that one... ~_~

    February 19, 2013 at 12:34 pm |
    • AleeD®@™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™

      I didn't think it wise to get between Kat's & Rich's silkies. Sometimes watching is enough. ~_~ Besides, Turth is trying to manage the axis of his pole at the moment. We don't want to tip the man-in-the-boat too far over the edge.

      February 19, 2013 at 12:48 pm |
      • ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™

        Um, no I don't think you want to go between the silkies... o.O

        Hey, I saw that on Cajun Justice. I know, my viewing choices are sometimes unexplainable.

    Ok. I let you sleep almost 5 HOURS more. Sometimes I am a soft touch. Have you started stocking up on wh!pped cream & ice cream yet? 2 days and counting.

    February 19, 2013 at 12:31 pm |
    • Turth™@AleeD

      Ok, I can quit bloggin now, as I have officially seen it all...AleeD describes herself as a soft touch. That's not your reputation Darlin'...

      Now if anyone should need me, I will be outside checking on the Earth's polar alignment...

      February 19, 2013 at 12:36 pm |
      • AleeD®@Turth™

        Oh dearest Turth™, there are soft parts of me you can only dream about. ~_~

        What' the direction of your pole's axis now?

        February 19, 2013 at 12:44 pm |
    • RichardHead@Can't Count Sista'

      You must have gone to a Public Skool in Flordor......Tomorrow is the BIG Day--no ice cream or whipped toppings needed. A True PIE needs No help.

      February 19, 2013 at 12:48 pm |
      • AleeD®@RichHd

        Just askin' if you're ready for the big day, Bro. ^_^

    Hay, hey, hay! I expect another insanely busy week, again. Ugh. Was in FL last week, Nancy's BBQ'd burnt ends special (topped with bleu cheese and chives on open face Texas Toast) was to amazing!! Then off to Vegas for the 3 day weekend...and just an FYI, Barstow is the armpit of America, I'm sure of it. I think I spotted the world's largest Motel...

    Make it a great day! :D

    I go away for a couple of days and the world seems to come unraveled. Kat, the Klatch is NEEDED, and the work of both you and SLT brightens a great many of our days. If the overlords do not get that, then let me know to whom I can vent my feelings.

    And best wishes and many condolences to the family of Reeva Steenkamp. My thinking is that Pistorius is done like dinner. More sincere condolences to the loved ones of Mindy McReady. I was not a fan, but I think that woman was hurting for a long time. May you rest in peace m'am, and find the comfort that eluded you in thsi world.

      Your Honour-My client doesn't have a leg to stand on. I rest my case.

    Little bit of housekeeping: Our benign overlords asked us why there were so many Coffee Klatches on the page as they scrolled down, and on days when we have fewer posts (we're posting less, but working on longer-lead pieces), they sort of dominated the site.

    Soooo - as a compromise, we're now adding a tag to each one as the new one publishes that makes it not show up in the main stream, just the most recent one. They're not gone, though. Just hit the Coffee Klatsch link at the bottom of any one of them, or in the left rail or bookmark this:

    The biz folks asked us why we do the Klatsch when it's not a huge pageview generator. We explained why it MATTERS. And this helps us continue to do it.

    It pleases me more than you know to see your names and words pop up here every day.

    • Mary Shannon

      Thanks for your support, Kat, I know we all really appreciate you and this place. I know what its like to have to explain things to benign overlords, believe me!

      February 19, 2013 at 10:07 am |
    • MicheleG™

      Thanks, Sweet Thang! I appreciate the words! And YOU and SLT!

      Just my 2 cents worth before the penny is discarded....When the economic collapse of the U.S.A happens-these same pencil pushing,money generating wizards of spin,will realize they need someone other than their Big Red Pencil to survive.
      @Kat....How did the Silkie turn out?

      February 19, 2013 at 10:30 am |
      • Kat Kinsman

        Expect full Silkie post later today. Spoiler alert – it was INSANELY DELICIOUS.

    • Truth™

      Katy Perry and the word "calculus" should never be used in the same sentence. Just sayin.

      February 19, 2013 at 12:18 pm |
      • AleeD®@Turth™

        Au contraire, mon ami: Katy Perry couldn't solve a calculus problem if she was sitting in Stephen Hawking's lap.

        February 19, 2013 at 12:42 pm |
        • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

          Katy Perry is my future ex-wife
