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 weekly 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.
You can always find it from the link in the left rail, or by bookmarking http://eatocracy.cnn.com/category/buzz/coffee-klatsch/.
Note: Kat's out this week, but should you care to check in with her, there's always Twitter.
Good Sunday Morning to the Good little Girls and Boys of The Klatsch. I really enjoy living in small town America…just last night around 7:00 pm. I heard a Rucus outside my front door…Sirens,Flashing Red Lights and blowing air horns.It was The Old Town Katy Fire Department,with an antique Fire Truck lit with Christmas Lights,a Lighted Sleigh, and Santa Claus himself in the sleigh,Waving and throwing candy to all the bright eyed kids of my neighborhood. Thanks Santa !!
Now for The Bad--The State High School Football Championship was played last night in JerryWorld….and of course MY Katy Tigers were trying to win a 32nd consecutive game against the Number 1 National ranked Cedar Hill,Tx team. I guess the shock of winning an 8th State Title for Katy was too much for them….My Congratulations to Cedar Hill for a well played game.
And now, for The Fugly-–@Truth-Please wake me up when the score hits 56-0 as THE Denver Broncos will Massacre the houston texans around noon today. The Bad part….The Dallas Cowboys play Washington at the same time and Blacked out in Houston.:(( I will also add our Fearless Leader Kat,brought out The Whip and Snapped Rob's fanny on The 2014 Predictions Thread. YOU GO GIRL..:)))
OK Kidz…Be Safe and Nice..Only 3 Days and counting-–Santa is watching us All.
I Gotz Moderated and I've been such a Good Boy ALL Year. :((
And you were right...your Texans have lost to Denver....at least they're in good company with the Giants these days in the Loser Lounge.
Sounds like you're enjoying a nice Sunday at home, have fun!
And on the Bright Side--How 'Bout Them Cowboys????? It was a squeakier,but a Win None the less. Dallas/Philly next week for the Division Title. Have a Safe and Warm Sunday with the Furries.
I must be on the Moderation Naughty List…….
"Sigh" Another Saturday at work. Oh well-8 hours to go and then a week off. Our little snowstorm came and went. Just the way I like it. Happy Holidays to all!
Very sorry you have to work today, but congrats on having a week off! Anyone who has to work this time of year gets major kudos from me. Retail employment paid for my schooling and people can real charmers this time of year. Goodonya RC!
Happy Merry Holidays Christmas to you, yours and all the Happy Klatschers!
Thanks! Same back atcha, and keep the dungeon warm....or is that cold......or.....oh well-enjoy your time off with good friends and family:)
HA! It's designed to stay cold when not in use – mostly for the Klatchers' in-house ice cream worshipers. However, when the schedule gets busy and I start gettin' busy with my clients (poor souls that they are), then things start to heat up.
Thank you for the well wishes. Hope you enjoy yours as well!
Merry Christmas everyone. I'm on vacation in 10 minutes. Hope everyone enjoys some time off and enjoys themselves with friends or family. See you in 2014!
lol. palintwit visits the Marquee blog, too, I see. I love that poster.
You're welcome to keep him over here. We'd loan you some of the other regulars as well.
I think palintwit visits all the blogs. Lol!
@T. Roll-nope. He's pretty funny, but you can keep him!
Happy Friday, foodies!
Senator Harry Reid (S-Nevada) has been hospitalized for an undisclosed illness. In announcing this, President Obama has requested all partisan haters to wish Senator Reid the best wishes for a speedy recovery. House Speaker John Boehner replied that his party will show all the tolerance and compassion displayed by Martin Bashir, Alec Baldwin, Nancy Pelosi and Piers Mrogan...
You may now return to your regularly scheduled Eatocracy...
Yay! First snow of the season. All of 3 inches. I counted 9 cars spun off the side of the freeway on my way to work this morning. You'd think people in Wa. would know how to drive in the snow. Hell-they can't even drive in the rain. Kinda funny.
Anyway, Happy Holidays to all and hears to a happy and prosperous new year!

Case of scotch needed at the Biddle home. D-day starts Monday evening....
Sorry, Sir Biddle! Meant my reply for an earlier RH sighting! Merry Holiday!
Good morning all and Happy Friday!
Hopefully Mary Shannon is still not working through the night.
Got the last of the gifts and cards done today, and now it is time to work, work, work, until roughly President's Day...
Anyone have big plans for the weekend?
Saw the moon this morning going to work and had a a laugh and thought a full moon for Truth, wonder if he's up. Just planning on doing some last Christmas shopping and hopefully getting my shorts back out as its supposed to be in the 70's here in DC. I thought all the hot air was supposed to leave during the Congressional recess?
Nope, worked straight through until 9:30 pm yesterday, then back on at 6:45 am.
Santa must be proud.
La la la...who's still working at this time of night...oh yeah, its ME!!!!
I went out to lunch with a friend today, to this place:

Wow. You even picked my birthday month. I guess I know what "suit" I'll be wearing for my pic!
Huh? I'm with the men? Ok, I'll be Mr Aug, but, I'm not taking my shirt off. Lol!
That just goes to show the interwebs have no gender:)
No worries. December's picture is usually the great equalizer where everyone has their pants off anyway. If everyone tucks in, Silence of the Lambs-style, no one will notice the difference.
Oh ok, I'll find my cute, little elf outfit for the Dec pic. (can I use the green & red whip, too?) I'll have to think about Aug's outfit, tho. Lol!
Note to self: Find my Chinchilla banana hammock!
Chinchilla fur is nice! I wouldn't be able to function. Good luck
Note to self: Find my Chinchilla jockey shorts
Evidently the moderators want me to wear nothing as my past 2 comments have been moderated. OK you asked for it, here you go!
Note to self, wear the tie that Mary Shannon gave me for Christmas two years ago...
I am assuming that TWO….aka The Witty One is the Cover Boy ???? Hmmmmmm????
He can have the Aug spot. Really, I don't mind. Lol!
Dear Ms. D…..Due to a hectic schedule at this time of year--I almost completely forgot about our Eatocracy Virtual Christmas Tree. IMHO–as an engineer,You are most suited to be asked to assemble the Tree this year. If memory serves me well….you were the First Girl to be in the Top 5 of last years Naughty List. If help is needed because of this late notice,I am sure the Gentleman of Eatocracy will be glad to help.
Yet as Thread Dominator, I have the power to delegate. Decisions, decisions. Do I tell people where to st!ck their tree pr0ngs or ... nope. No second choices there! Rich, you get to start. SSSSSSSSSSSSSSssssssssssssCR@CK! Stick white tips in the bottom holes.
Man this is going to be fun! ~_~
Thank You M'am…..May I have another….:))
Your First Badge of HONOR-wear it well. BTW-Kat is a Big Target Shopper.
This was suppose to be at the bottom of the page…….good thing I have my Astronaut snorkel handy. :))
Thank you, I will! I'm really glad it happened on a TurdsDay! Lol! I'm S.H.I.T.! :) (that's too funny!)
I'M SO HAPPY!... OH SO HAPPY!... that it's Thursday! Enjoy your S.H.I.T. day!
Thanks, I will! You, too! :)
(can you tell I don't have much going on this fine TurdsDay?)

Hmmmmm….An appropriate word for The Clown sitting in the White House. Let's go spend $ 4 million dollars on a trip to Hawaii,so that my family an I can have a Merry Christmas Vacation. Tee times have already been set-–AZZHAT !!
Good Morning Kidz….You can tell it's almost Christmas when these things happen-In Atlanta this morning, approximately 42,000 lbs of Christmas hams are laying on I-85 due to a Truck Driver going too fast on an exit ramp. DumbAzz Hopefully some local Food Banks will get some. Then I get a picture of JBJ's hand which shows a picture of Santa Claus painted on her finger nail….Of course my first question was " Does Santa realize where that finger has been "….I think NOT. So enjoy your day everyone….and let's be Safe out there.
At least they weren't pressed hams. That would be a tragic loss: http://www.funkyfridge.com/EP-8806.html
Are any of them Kosher? I always have trouble finding a good quality Kosher ham at this time of year...
You could always try potted meat. Remember that stuff from your military days?
Ham on the lam!
Good morning! Early call this morning, started at 7 am....not my best time of day.
Its supposed to get warm here, 60 by the weekend. All the snow will melt and no white Christmas expected. Oh well.
I need to do some decorating, due to work and Dad stuff I haven't done a thing. My house must look like a Grinch house!
Good morning all from a near perfect morning in Denver. Bright moon overhead, coffee is on, and sitting here getting caught up on things.
How is everyone doing today?
Looks like the robo posters are *ahem* Target-ing the old Klatsch threads. Be sure to check your bank statements folks.
Good morning all. Hope your week's going better than those Target shoppers?
Countdown to 2 weeks' vacation begins .... NOW! 33 hours to go.
Traveling to Dele-wella-ware this year?
No, thank God. We're visiting my family for Christmas this year. We're driving up to Gator-ville Monday, coming back Turdsday. However, if I see any hams along the way, I'll be thinking of you and Rich.
Are you traveling great distances for the holiday?
No traveling for us. Nice to stay here and hopefully start more of our own traditions. Liquor cabinet will be fully stocked!
And is there an elf on the liquor cabinet shelf?
He was on that shelf once and then in the morning I found our computer loaded with porn. Poor little guy didn't even remember to delete his history/cookies. Lesson learned for next year!

I heard about the Target thing this morning. What a shame. If any of you swiped any card at any Target in the last 2 weeks, keep an eye on your accts. They gave a ph # if you find anything suspicious. I'll be back with it.
I'm being moderated? Hmmm? Anyways, the # for Target Corp is
Happy Wednesday, everyone. How's everyone's week going?
Dad is finally settled into assisted living. Yesterday's snow here caused a bit of confusion and just plain yuck during move in, but we were able to borrow some furniture temporarily from the facility that will be replaced by his stuff when we get it there. All in all, a positive move and I think he will settle in just fine.
The food sound s great there, too. His meal last night, prime rib, twice-baked potato and all the fixings. It was their holiday dinner but he said it was delicious and cooked right, for him that's big cause he likes well done and you have to be careful with it not to dry it out.
That is certainly Good News for all involved….It takes a huge load off of you. Thanks for keeping us up to date. Stay Warm.
I want to thank our office intern for being to young to realize she is dressing a little too risque when trying to be a cute elf for the Christmas party today. The knee high boots and the hat really complete the outfit. Oh you silly kids....
Appropriate for Humpday ... and Sir Biddle's nite time practices:
If only my nite time activities were that exciting.
Good morning all and happy humpday...
Are you the real Turth or another one of these robo-post.
Nodding to TWO, tell us something only the real Turth would say.
Obama is a liberal stooge...
Nothing I post is showing up. Guess I'll be back later.
The robo posters are sucking up all our posting power.
The Great Sucking sound from South of the Border. Wear Hats or use Gel.
Maybe it's the fact it's links I'm trying to post.
Look up poseidonresortsdotcom and google images.
That's where I'm going when I win the lottery.
@ Weeds – been trying to post an article in regards to your earlier claims. google MaximumWins's Blog
Reasons Why The NFL Is Fixed For Profit
Looks cool, but not for me...although I have always wanted to see the lost city of Atlantis, did they ever find it?
I'm trying to book a cruise for next year to Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, etc. but not having much luck. Seems cruisers plan out more than 6 months in advance...all suites taken except the really, really pricey ones!
I love, love Scotland. I spent 6 weeks there one year on business and would have moved in a heartbeat!
Mic check, one, two
3 4--It's a Bloody Mary Morning.
(now that I'm done lol at the comments)
My daughter requested goulash for supper tonight & it made me think of y'all. Thought I would stop by for a cup of joe & say howdy. So, "howdy, how's everyone doing this fine Tuesday?" (coffee cup in the air) Here's wishing y'all a very merry & a happy new year!
I had VEGAN Goul Ash over the weekend and it was stringy and tasted unearthly. Happy Holidays to You and Yours.
Ick! I have leftovers, you're welcome to it.
Welcome back, and Happy TootsDay as it is known around here thanks to RH.....I think it is his chili dogs talkin'
I don't believe so…….My Chili Dogs have cheese and white onions on them…plus the Buns are Fresh. I Likey…….
"TootsDay", noted. :)
And for the record, tomorrow is TurdsDay, also thanks to RH! :)
Lol! Got it! Thanks for the helpful info. :)
Also known as S.H.I.T. day.
Goooood TurdsDay morn! I'm S.H.I.T.! (Nod to JBJ & RC) Lol!
Almost the weekend, yay! I need to shop till I drop, Christmas is coming too quick. Anyone else as far behind as I?
Watchoo doin' way down here? The dungeon is where I keep all the ... toys. You're welcome to look around, but noooo sampling for first timers. It's a safety thing. ~_~
You have a dungeon, too? So do I! Ok, I will exit to the top. Sorry to invade. I promise I didn't "play" with anything. Lol! Fun toys, tho!
Looks like while Kat's away, the mice are playing en masse. What's with the rash of robo posts these last couple of days?
Heeeeeeeeres your answer……. Jeff Zucker is STILL a PUTZ !!! That is all.
Super, Man. That answers all my questions.
Hey, where's Perry?
I declare that the NFL is run much like pro wrestling. Some games, i.e. rival games, can be purchased with cash or favors by the team owners prior to the start of the season. All regular season games are up for auction. Every NFL owner and NFL high executive can bid and combine their bids in a games auction. The auction for each game closes at half time. The results of each auction is never to be disclosed to outside parties as not to skew the Vegas style gambling bets in which these very same people can either offset their losses or increase their winnings.
Yeah, I saw that on NFL.com.
LOL. Good thing he bought an insurance policy.
Yeah. Jet Chevrolet. Apparently he used a charity outfit called Hole in One for funding. A half a million ain't chump change!
Who is the hot chick in the photo? Yowza!!!
Greetings from a balmy 83 degrees...soon to be a high of 31 as we go to WA on Thursday!! Anyone else have holiday plans planned or planning?

Wow! Now that's talent!
Headed for the Galapagos the day after Christmas. I'm hoping to buy a pair iguana cowboy boots somewhere south of the equator. I want to wear a thong, cowboy hat and cowboy boots to the beach but for some reason, my family won't let me. I'm sure I can find another way to embarrass us all.
Not going to happen unless I win the lottery. But it doesn't hurt to plan ahead.
Well, I had to look up how to get to the Galapagos from LAX, some 18+ hours, yuck. As long as we are dreaming, I will plan a trip here (upon winning lotto):
Psssst. *whispering* Ya know, Rich said there was something messed up in your cabesa. If that's the kind of creativity that comes from having a messed up head, more of us should be so "messed up". ^_^
Lot's of things messed up, but I don't let that get me down! Hope you all or is that y'all are doing good!
Just because your Blonde….:)
That I am my friend, that I am.
Lunch with a friend...Will be back later...
Looks cozy. Any place that sells Mr. Pibb is a-ok in my book.
Quietly jumping up and down-Seahawks took it to the Giants big time. Not a fun time to be Giants or Cowboys fan. The 'Niners aren't going quietly either.
As a Giants fan, I unfortunately expected no more than how they performed. Arrgh.
Plus the 'Hawks got a taste of where they'll be playing come February.
The basement? They were playing in the basement?
This weekend, please tune into the NFL holiday special starring SF, NYG, NYJ and DAL. It will be called "I'll be home for Christmas...and the wild card, and the playoffs"
OHHHHH-Don't Forget the Houston Texans.
Ha! They were playing in New Yorks Basement. And I think we know who's going to be home for the playoffs:)
Niners actually still have a shot to win the division. Of course that would involve the Seahawks losing their last two games in a row, which isn't happening.
See you in Seattle. =)
Classic Romo December choke move, too. LOL
Knowing that she just received the new Org@smotron 5000 V!br@t0r, Mary delights in knowing that she will enjoy her upcoming weekend.
I don't think she'll wait until the weekend for the test drive.
Bet you're right and she takes a run up the middle when she gets off ...... work. ~_~
Yosimite Kids. Happy Monday. Back from sunny San Fran.
a vewy, vewy quiet and whispered good morning.
padded slippers on carpet walking around the house with a quiet cup of java.
good morning (typing lower case quietly so as not to disturb aleed). survived the snow, about 8 inches followed by 1/2 inch of ice. i am expecting a busy first part of this week but hopefully quiet after.
sorry, RH, your 'boys were taken down by the cheese.
Morning-I'm assuming you are referring to the Dallas Chokeboys--Dang,those Packers are such nice guys,they gave Tony Romo The Game Ball. :((
In your face Romo!
I would give my left clavicle to be on a Winning team. Think I can get on Brett Favres Mississippi High school team???
*groan* Why is my keyboard so loud this morning? Coffee's on, but *turns head, mouth up* I'll be commandeering the first 1/2 a pot.
How was your weekend?
shhh.....i'll be very quiet today darlin'...you have a long night? doing a little early celebrating? in any case, i'll be vewy vewy quiet...
Are you seeing Spots ??? I heard there was some Bad Spotted Dick going around in Floridork.
Mary & Turth, thank you for your quiet consideration. 1/2 a pot o'joe & 2 IB's and I'm back to my abby mornal condition.
Rich, the only dix I saw this weekend were the ones my hubby works with. His company party was last nite. What a classless group of knuckledraggers ... at a fairly posh venue, too. Eesh.
Yes, I agree with you when the Company Party is held at the local Dairy Queen.Too Much Drama.
Now that's something only a Texan would think of: using posh to describe Dairy Queen. They DO make 'em bigger in Tehas, don't they? ^_^
