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.

    Basking in my last tastes of Newport...dark chocolate covered sea salt caramels....sooooo freakin' good!! Should be a good pick-me-up for the afternoon too. If you need me, I'll be bouncing off the walls.

      That stands for "Lack Of Lobster" The flip side of being lobsterless: our young eng had a clam roll for lunch last Friday and spent the rest of the weekend calling Ralph. He's calling it his weekend cleanse. ;)

      If you combine the (at least) shirtless dude in the photo and Rich's No Pants sweatshirt, we have either a fashion forward feller or a wonderfully nekkid man. ~_~

        Now a clam roll just sounds sooo wrong, and apparently it was. YUK

      Big Blue is pretty particular about what is painted on her,tho I've been searching thru pictures so I can have one of WD painted on the back of the cab.

        Aww, nice idea on WD, she can keep rolling with you! :)

    Good morning all!
    I love the cooler weather, but it makes it SO much easier to stay in and hit the snooze button.

    How was everyone's weekend?

    Morning, all from the chilly NE, although it looks like TX is just as chilly today, glad they changed the term to "global climate change". Welcome back, RH, hope you're doing well.

    Looks like a busy week for me, I hope everyone has a great one!!

    • RichardHead@Mary Shannon

      Good Morning Ms. P.......How are you and the Furries doing? Looks like I better grab a heavy jacket whenever I make it back to Katy. I think My Brother Truth hit the snooze button.

      Well, since you have a sweatshirt and no pants, I officially declare today ...

      No Pants Monday. ~_~ Drop 'em, Dano.

      Thanks for the coffee, Bro. Nice to see you back. Are you running auto parts now exclusively or are you making other runs, too?

        Morning Sista'–How goes it? Luckily, I still have my wool jock to protect the family jewels.:)) I'm still on the Target dedicated...up to 4 stops in different Malls per load. It's getting to be a pain in my back and azz, also.I'll get the auto parts run back in 2 weeks and protect it like a mother hen.

        October 8, 2012 at 7:13 am |
        • AleeD®@Woolly Rich

          Here's hoping you have a silk sock to protect you from your wool jock, mon ami.
