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.

    FYI (I know, most of us don't live nearby) there was a small earthquake at the bottom of Lake Mead (near Las Vegas) a few minutes ago. Small enough so that Hoover dam is unaffected.

      I realize this is a non event for you all but it fascinates me!

    Ringggg, ringgg, hello my Queen of Everything, I have a question that needs an answer...

    Any way to lower my cholesterol by say 20-30 points by tomorrow morning?? I'm somewhat serious...wondering if there is anything to eat tonight that might help the number. Have blood work in the am. Thanks!

    If anyone has an AMEX card, I scored the new 2011 Food & Wine Annual Cookbook + a $100 restaurant card for $2.99 yesterday! The only catch is they will send you notice to buy a cookbook (no more than 5 a year) and you have to return something if you don't want it... I figured I would give it a whirl.

    Pretty slow day in the Klatsch. Understandable, since Nov and Dec are pretty busy months for folks. Have a great evening everyone!

    Good late morning to everyone. Seems like a Good News/Bad News kind of day in the klatsch.

    Bad News: Condolences out to RichardHead and TX4UREXKARLENE for their losses. We're here for you if you need anything. Maybe some ice cream?

    Good News: Expanding my music collection has picked up in recent days. Will post my most recent acquisition during lunch...

    Good morning everyone. Looks like there's no stopping the aversion thread. Cool.
    Rich, please don't hesitate to ask if there's something we can do to help you or your family.
    Jerv, please don't confuse your butt and your pencil. Could be painful. :D
    Truth, how's your new life as a college student going?
    JJ, I thought it was spelled o-ray-ga-no. ;)

    • Jerv@AleeD

      Haha! I know, right? I wonder if the new vapor shows up today.

      • AleeD@Jerv

        numbnuts is too small of mind to get what goes on in the Klatsch. He is so flagrantly jealous of the camaraderie, all he can do is muster up enough emotion to knock it. I know I don't always say the right thing, but at least I'm not intentionally malicious in my ignorance. Can't say that about him.

        November 3, 2011 at 9:50 am |
      • Jerv@AleeD

        You are right on with that, I must say. WTH, after all we are only human.

        November 3, 2011 at 10:15 am |
      • JBJingles@AleeD & Jerv

        Boy are you both so right!! His delayed response to my remark about leaving was blatantly rude, not only to RH, but to me as well. I guess you just can't train a troll! :)

        November 3, 2011 at 3:37 pm |
      • AleeD@JBJingles

        Did vapor ever really get the hint? He showed up before I even started reading Eatocracy and popped in again a couple of months ago.

        Since you can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish, maybe there's hope for troll training (or just put them on a train?). I seem to remember some of the Klatschers eventually viewed vapor as something of a pet.

        November 3, 2011 at 3:46 pm |
      • JBJingles@AleeD

        LMAO – "tuna fish" – I like the troll train. And I guess we have a new pet...

        November 3, 2011 at 6:02 pm |
      • AleeD From Home Sweet Home@JBJ

        A new pet? Hmm. I'm thinking "just-in" would be more like a cayman rather than something cuddly like a Lab or a St. Bernard. Yes?

        November 3, 2011 at 6:18 pm |
    • Truth@AleeD

      I have not officially started yet, but I go to enrollment on November 16th. The big deal for me was getting admitted, since my BP was hanging me up. Got that under control last month and am in! Enjoying my last two months of laziness and sloth before it starts.

      November 3, 2011 at 4:27 pm |
      • AleeD From Home Sweet Home@Truth

        Gotcha. To freedom & sloth. Cheers!

    Good morning and happy Thursday :-) Looking forward to my oh so busy weekend and testing out some deliciously new recipes :-)
    Also have some oregano bread for the group so please enjoy!

    November 3, 2011 at 9:14 am |
    • Jerv@JJ

      Is o-ray-ga-no bread anything like Subways o-ray-ga-no rolls? If so, I'm in!

      November 3, 2011 at 9:37 am |
      • JainaJade@jerv

        this is good ole oregano that can be legally grown in ones garden :-)

    • RichardHead@Jerv

      Morning Lil' Buddy....No wonder they couldn't find it. Scrambling this morning to get everything done before 9:00 a.m. Y'all have a Great day and Thanks again.

      November 3, 2011 at 7:23 am |
      • Jerv@RicH

        Alrighty. Take care. I gotta sharpen my pencil and scratch my butt and figure out this weeks NFL Nosepicks.

      • katydid@RichardHead

        Hey Rich...just to let you know I was thinking of you today with a lot of hugs!

        As to picking Seattle vs. Cowboys... Have you seen our stats the last couple of years against them?

        Hate to choose against the home team! So I choose the Seahawks :)

        We'll see..I'm sticking with the rest of your picks though.

        Again all xoxoxoxo's

    Good Morning My Friends...Was playing ketchup on yesterdays thread. Thank You all for your thoughts and support. Today is the Big Day, I think we'll make it ok. Hey Jerv, I tried to pick up your chocolate pie in Corsicana TX yesterday,but they couldn't find the order. I was hungry too. :))

    November 3, 2011 at 6:55 am |

      I am sorry for your loss Richard . I didn't know .
