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.

    The dude in the photo looks like an actor in a Star Trek episode but can't remember it. He was a Betazoid.

      Betazoid? I was thinking pedophile. Just what IS his right hand doing?

    "Like" and laughed out loud at the pet chicken named "Nugget."

    I think we need some better soundproofing here in the lounge, the people in the endangered breed thread are getting out of hand.

      Agreed. Some really ugly stuff being posted. By the way, how is Miss Saigon? Haven't heard about her in a while.

    Wow, show up late for the party and find everyone got here before me! Nice to see lots of activity today.

    Last workday before vacation! I'll check in from time to time if the wireless is up and running where I'm headed, if not, I wish everyone a wonderful holiday if I don't "talk" to you first. Hugs to all.

    Good morning all from a cold and snowy Denver. We woke to two inches this morning and of course, everyone forgot how to drive in it. I walked to my bus this morning and saw tire tracks going straight where the street curved, and then the obvious mark of a vehicle going onto the sidewalk and over the curb. My guess is that someone will be spending their morning at the tire and alignment shop.

    How is everyone doing today? Looks like we have a guest appearance from Michael J. Fox in the pic above.

      HA, I actually thought it was a cross between Michael J Fox and YOU when I saw the image above.

      Morning Crew!

    "Honey Boo Boo has named her new pet chicken Nugget." That is all.

    Good am all! Snowy & cold here, will be till April or May...sigh. Where's AleeD? I keep getting up Mr.RH, my bro-in-law is a trucker, too & mentions that truck stop, a lot. It's a good 1 from the sound of it. We have driven by it quite a few times, but never stopped. I guess we will have to check it out next time we go to the Badlands. (1 of my fave places!) Everyone have a great day!

      Haha! The best. I decided to go with peanutnut butter cookies with Hershey Kisses to break in my new oven. Can't wait.

      • JBJingles@Jerv

        Love those! Haven't made them in years! You did get the self-cleaning oven I hope... :)

        • Jerv@JBJ

          Yes Mam. We went for all the bells and whistles on this sucker. No more bending over into a dirty oven smelling oven cleaning fumes and killing what little brain cells I have left. Enjoy the Ninja cookies!

        Hi Jerv! You are gonna love having a self cleaner, makes life just a little bit ezier. I will never be w/o it again!

    Good Tootsday Morning Kidz from Decatur,OK. Gotz a lot of running to do today-Big Blue is ready. Gonna be hitting the Iowa 80 Truck Stop–one of the Biggest in the U.S.A. for some new chrome pieces and Lites for Big Blue. You can Never have enough bright sparkly lites on a truck–( with a nod to Queenie ) :))) I wish WD was here...Iowa 80 was her favorite place. Anyway...Look out Missouri and Iowa-call out the mounties–the Blue Flash is headed your way. Stay Safe everyone and make it a Great Day.

      Hey there Texas Chaser. What's up with WD? I hope she is alright. The "To save this endangered breed, eat it" was a great read and I see the Nutrition Nazis have already started posting.
