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.

      Must be nice having Bankers Hours. :)) Hey,Chumarinos–There is an online petition to try and force the USDA from using Pink Slime Meat in School Lunches throughout the country. This stuff was made originally to be used in Dog Food and thanks to our Government is now being used in school lunches. Please visit Speaking of Government..Just found out Obozo is visiting Houston tomorrow. Hope I get home early enough to miss ALL the backed up traffic on the HiWays.:((

  2. Truth™, with a deep thought for the day

    Back in 1990, I was briefly with a sort of girl whom I never brought home to meet Mom. Lady made Paris Hilton look like a rank amateur. Today, I was on amind-numbingly boring conference call,so I was fishing on the Google and found her FB profile. Her "likes" include her local PTA, Scholastic Book Clubs, and Kashi cereal.

    Thomas Wolfe was DEFINITELY right, when he said "You can't go home again"...What is more scary is where, and how quickly the last twenty years went past.

      I understand DEEPLY! Wait until you can look back on over 40 years of (you hope) fairly well lived adulthood. You will wonder, and despair, at how short life is.

    • AleeD®@Truth, wadtftd

      Amen, Bro. It was 1992.

      In March of that year, I was at the 2-year mark of being married to my first mistake ... uh, I mean, husband. At that time I wrestling with myself as to whether I was happier with him or without him. By September of that year, I had my mind made up: without. Definitely without. Then I started getting my ducks in a row to get divorced.

      *shudder* That was a whole other life ago.

      I have those moments, but mostly for my childhood. It seemed like everything was so certain when I was a kid, then things suddenly turned into a chaotic mess.

      I'm still not sure how that happened.

  3. AleeD®@Word of the Day

    micturate – verb \ˈmik-chə-ˌrāt, ˈmik-tə-\
    mic·tu·rat·ed mic·tu·rat·ing

    \intransitive verb\
    — mic·tu·ri·tion noun

    Origin of MICTURATE

    If you feel so inclined, use it in a sentence.

    • Truth™@AleeD, WOD

      Give me a minute, I need to go and micturate.

      March 8, 2012 at 1:03 pm |
      • MicheleG™

        Micturate: a very underrated but highly necessary operation.

      Why is this our word of the day? Are we having some... problems?

      March 8, 2012 at 1:20 pm |
      • AleeD®@Evil Grin

        Nope, no problems in that area. All clean & green here – so to speak. :D

        Please read my first Klatsch post today. I thought I was being zombie-botted for using my new word but turns out it was just a cookie thing. Yesterday, I cleaned out my cookies. Today I had to type in my faux email address and forgot I can't use g o d smackrules anymore ... so it didn't post. Changed it to metallicarules and now all's well that posts well.

          Sure. Whatever you say. ;)

    Hi, everyone. JJ, hope you feel better soon. Today should be almost 70 here in NY, a bit windy but that just reminds me of Aruba.

    March 8, 2012 at 10:34 am |
    • JainaJade@Phoenix

      • AleeD®@Sir Bid, Truth & MicG

        Nope! Tweren't me. Work's busier than a one-armed man at a wallpapering contest. I think Sir Bid likes to set the bonding machine to "autobond."

        Doesn't anyone want to know what my new word is .... anyone .... Buuuueller? :D

        March 8, 2012 at 12:36 pm |

    HA! Waddya know. I learned a new word, tried to use it in a post and it got moderated. Them's some smart modbots!
    Good Morning Happy Klatschers! Soooo very sorry to hear about your pain, JJ. IB's and cold packs will help. On the bright side, the dress shop will have to take IN your dress. :D

    March 8, 2012 at 9:17 am |
    • JainaJade@AleeD

      In theory I'll have the final crown the week before the wedding so I'll be walking around eating ice cream and kit kats in an attempt to get everything fitting the right way

    Good morning all. Sorry to hear about the jaw pain there JJ. Hope things recover quickly.
