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.

Soooo...what's everyone cooking and/or gobbling up this holiday weekend? Do you stick to same menu every year, or go all "variety is the spice of life?"

And more importantly, who won yesterday's limbo contest?

    Mercy, I'm tired of grocery shopping! Came in yesterday with 2 overstuffed bags full of heavy stuff, tripped and fell flat on my breastbone. Now it hurts to breathe. The dangerous sport of food foraging. On a senior citizen discount Wednesday, yet. AND they were all out of jalapeno pimento cheese. I'm in withdrawal right now. Crack open the frozen vodka and rip out the New Year's Eve caviar early.

        Better make WD's a virgin, I think giving alcohol to dogs is a no-no. I'm going to get ready to head home soon. I'll try to stop in tomorrow in between the grocery store, making cookies and wrapping presents. I'll be in late Monday (another doctors appt.) so save me some coffee!

      So it's been kind of a rough day so I'm just going to observe 5@5 from my thinking spot. Unless Michael P., Michael S. or Hugh is featured and then all bets are off. BTW, it's CHUMquat, although I think you already knew that.

    You should see some of the conversations that my bride and I have. The way VN is structured is just so odd. Syntax and sentence structure is VERY fragmented. We always find a way to understand each other, but sometimes, it is tough...

    And Mr. Rich, what is HSC?

    December 23, 2010 at 4:19 pm |
    • Jdizzle McHammerpants@Truth

      Wondered the same thing, but didn't want to ask. Figured it was bad.

      December 23, 2010 at 4:21 pm |
      • Truth@JDizz - Language Lessons

        Another example...If a female talks to me, Bride refers to her as my "girlfriend" – This means platonic, and is kosher.
        Call someone your "Girlfriend out the door", and you are sleeping on the floor for a week.

        Everything also sounds like a double entendre...The unit of currency is the "dong", the word for rice is "com" (pronounced like a "u"), the word for meat is "thit", and part of saying that you are full is pronounced "phuc"...Takes some getting used to.

        Bummer.

        Your front differential could have gone out on you 3 times in 6 weeks (twice out in the middle of nowhere), costing you thousands of dollars, then the final repair takes three months due to all sorts of "issues". Yeah, that was my August-Oct.

        December 23, 2010 at 4:22 pm |
      • Dave the 1st@Jdizz

        Well, in the last week, The alternator went out,which fried the battery, which fried the solenoid switch, which fried the fuseable link (thought that was supposed to go first to PROTECT all the other junk). Then, the first lady was driving and lost the brake caliper on the front, which cost me the caliper and brake pads, now I ran the battery down. (sigh)

    I like going to the bathroom on the bagels and dog food gold. Then I walk around with chocolate in my pocket in the hot weather in the park to make people think someone defecating in a bag.

      Yeah, I translated it back from Vietnamese to English and gave me that exact translation.

      I like to defecate on bagels and feed them to yellow dogs. Then I put chocolate in my shirt pocket and walk in the park in hot weather so people think someone defecated in my pocket.

      So sounds like "gold" is likened to "yellow" and "pocket" to "a bag" for storage. I learned some language nuances today!

        Okay, so all joking completely aside. If I have been the cause of any issues or problems then I apologize from the bottom of my bitchy little heart. I know that I have a very strong personality and it has caused problems in the past (obviously I didn't learn too much from those experiences). If I need to make myself scarce for a while then say the word. In the meantime, I'm crawling back under my desk to do my personal affirmation exercises.

    HAH! another question for all my Chums to chew on: what's your fave Christmas tune?

    mine is "Silent Night, Holy Night". i learned sign language to that song when i was little... reminds me of Christmas as well as my brother (who's hearing impaired). "I want a hippopatamus for Christmas" is a close 2nd tho...

      I'm a big fan of "Santa Baby". In high school, I dated the German foreign exchange student. That song was playing the night of the Christmas dance when I lost my.... well, it's a long story but I do have good memories of that song.

        All I lost that night was my class ring. And he gave me his while we danced to that song, it was all very sweet and innocent. He was also very sweet but not that innocent Ha!ha!

        You are sooooo sensitive at this time of year. There was this Hippie Chick half way up Mt Davis and was selling these maps and Tofu bars for energy. It's a Vegan thing of which you are not familiar. I would never insult you. By the way,Your phone # is engraved near the Mayan carvings.

        How have you insulted me? Let me count the ways...just kidding. :) My number is still up there, no kidding? Those Mayans know how to party but boy were they disappointed when we got to the top of that volcano and they found out that I wasn't suitable for sacrifice after all.

        I LOVE THAT MOVIE!! i'm actually going to watch that tonite!!! :) that little kid is SO cute!! and Liam Neeson is one my fave actors.

        December 23, 2010 at 3:25 pm |
      • Truth@Wendy

        Truth be told, that movie always makes me cry. Reason being that because my wife did not yet have a US Visa when we married, so we wound up spending the first year of our marriage with her living in VN, and me in Denver. I visited her that Christmas, and i arrived at 11:30 p,m, on Xmas eve. VERY emotional, so airport scenes always reduce to a blubbering mess, especially at Xmas.

        More truth be told, I loved transferring through Seoul/Incheon on Xmas eve, seeing everything decorated, knowing that I would be seeing my bride shortly...Nice memories...:)

        December 23, 2010 at 3:33 pm |
      • wendy

        awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. and i mean that sincerely!!! :) that's so neat! it's always great to have good memories attached to happenings/places. i always cry at the funeral service scene when they start up the song... *smiles* so sweet.

      I'm still here. I think Wendy is too. I think Richard is trying to set up Sir B with a cow to enjoy so he may not be around for a while. EG tried to poison Dave and I think it might have worked. He hasn't moved in a while.

        I did NOT try to poison Dave. I was merely storing... something... until I could put it to use. NOT on Dave. Is it my fault he ate it? Did I put "eat me" on the container?
