Welcome back! How are you? Ready for the weekend already or still hanging in there? I tend to be leaning towards the weekend at this point. I might be more focused except that I'm getting a massage on Saturday, and I haven't had one of those in years, so..yay me! However, BDH and Little Buddha are doing everything they can to keep me on track until then. So, help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter.
Here's something you don't see very often: Why is one of Senator Mark Pryor's potential Republican opponents defending him against the National Republican Senatorial Committee?
I wonder if House Speaker John Boehner and the rest of his cronies ever have difficulty keeping track of their "complaints of the day." The fact that healthcare.gov shows the world is falling down! The fact that it's working now doesn't mean anything! Let's vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act for the 400th time! You damn kids get off of my lawn! We need tax cuts! Tax cuts! Tax cuts! Zzzzzzz.
Now that Jacoby Ellsbury signed his ridiculous contract with the New York Yankees, does that mean the Boston Red Sox should sign New York free agent Curtis Granderson? I'm not sure how likely that is, but you know the Boston and New York baseball media would love it if they could mention the teams swapping centerfielders every...single...time...the Sox take on the Yankees.
Congratulations to Paul Konerko who is coming back for his 16th season with the Chicago White Sox next year. That type of long-term stability with one team is an increasingly-rare situation in professional sports, so cheers to everyone involved for working out a deal that made sense.
Wait, why exactly did Microsoft develop a "smart" bra? Ladies, is this on your Christmas list this year?
The best I can say about this story about 2 million passwords being stolen is that if this is the first time you're hearing about it, then it probably doesn't apply to you. Other than that, I've got nothing.
Clutter is working hard at avoiding any potential spoilers about Matt Smith's upcoming final Doctor Who episode, but we can confirm at this time that the Christmas special will air...on Christmas. No need to thank us for this inside scoop, Clutterheads. That's what our crack research staff is here for.

Paul Walker's autopsy confirms that the actor was killed by injuries from his car crash plus burns from the fireball that happened minutes later.
Will Farrell was in my neck of the woods yesterday, and I missed the entire thing. You know what, I'm good with that. I haven't really liked anything he's done since Saturday Night Live, except for Old School, and I'll be happy if I don't see any more of those damn truck commercials.
Okay kids, that's going to do it for now. I'm feeling like perhaps I was just a tiny bit harsh on Mr. Farrell. I really don't like most of what he's done in the movies, but if you're not moved by his performance of "Dust in the Wind" in Old School, then you just have no soul. See for yourself in today's, "Clip of the Day." You're my boy, Blue. You're my boy.
Thanks for stopping by, everyone. It was great to see you, as always. Enjoy the rest of your day, and you know you're welcome to come back and hang out again later if you want. BDH and Little Buddha always love it when you're around. Otherwise, be good, and we'll see you back here again for more fun soon. Until next time, that's today's Clutter, and we are outta here.
