Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Did you enjoy the eclipse? I ended up making a cereal box viewer so BDH and Little Buddha could see what was going on. I felt bad that I could find them glasses, but they were excited to look in the box, so that worked out well. It was also nice to see so many people freaking out over something a) positive and b) science-based for a change. If I heard correctly, the next eclipse that's visible in New England will be seven years from now, so hopefully I'll find those two some... Read more →

The Boston Red Sox had Thursday night off, so it seemed like a good time to see what's been sitting on the DVR. Top of the list? The Accountant, starring Ben Affleck. Ben plays Chris Wolff, a man with a high-functioning form of autism who is, (you guessed it) an accountant for some major bad guys. Somehow his autism makes him both a genius at numbers as well as an elite assassin, so yeah, we've got problems right off the bat. My expectations were low, but I thought there was some potential for an interesting story, and I had a... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Feeling pretty pleased with myself right now, because I think I finally fixed a longstanding problem at Clutter Headquarters. There's no need to go into details, but after many false starts, and a healthy dose of procrastination, I located the problem and made the repair. It might take a couple of days to be sure it's better now, but we're off to a promising start. BDH and Little Buddha were very pleased, and that's good enough for me. The only other thing I can report right now is that we have coffee! There's... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Notice anything different? That's right, all of the scaffolding is finally down at Clutter Headquarters! It's about time! It's much brighter in here again, we can have all of the windows open during the day, and BDH and Little Buddha don't have to feel uncomfortable about people looking in the windows. They even tried to offer the construction workers some coffee but never got a response, which was awkward. However, they know you'd never turn them down, so they made a fresh pot just for you. Help yourself to a nice medium DD,... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! What a crazy week this is turning into. We only got a little rain in the morning yesterday, so I ended up having to water the garden in the evening after all. That's fine. It's a very relaxing activity, and it was also a welcome distraction from all of the craziness in the world. Plus, if you missed it, I passed Steven Tyler on my bike ride yesterday afternoon, so you just never know what the day will bring. Well, that's not entirely true. You know that the day will bring you a fresh pot of... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in. How are you? I'm still a little annoyed with myself for not going to Boston Comic Con yesterday, partly because I can't figure out why I didn't go. Something tells me I'm going to think the answer is lame when I figure it out. BDH and Little Buddha remind me that there are other conventions in other cities, so maybe it's time to think about a road trip...or at least get my act together in Boston next year. Either way, time to move on. Thank you to everyone who wished us a happy... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Things are generally fine here. I'm a little annoyed with myself at the moment. Sorry for the vagueness, but I was debating over the last few weeks whether or not to do something. Now the window has passed, and I can't do it anyway. Like I said, I'm a little irritated that I didn't do it, but then I realized I probably would have given myself a hard time for doing it, so either way, I set myself up for self-criticism. BDH and Little Buddha say all of this grumbling doesn't seem like... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Apart from the whole, "are we about to start a nuclear war via Twitter" question? We'll get back to that in a bit. Other than that little issue, things are generally okay on this end. Looking forward to some gardening time a little later today, but there are plenty of headlines to work through first, so let's start with that. There's a fresh pot of coffee ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter. The Boston Red... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? How was your weekend? Things are fine on this end at the moment, nothing much to report. I thought I was going to have to water the garden today, but the weather forecast calls for rain tonight, so maybe we'll hold off on that for now and see if that rain actually comes. This week's to-do list is fairly long, but let's check out the headlines first. There's a fresh pot of coffee waiting for you, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Monday Clutter. The Boston... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Things are okay on this end. I have a bit of a headache that won't go away. Don't know what that's about. We're also clearly in the back half of gardening season, despite my best attempts to freeze time. On the other hand, the flowers still look great, and I really need to remember that we're still in early August and I should stop rushing things along. Oh, and of course - we have coffee! Maybe that will help with my headache. There's a fresh pot ready to go, so help yourself to... Read more →
