October is off to a slightly bumpy start so far. First, the smoke detector is still periodically chirping (though it's been quiet for a while now), but I don't want to pay $50 just to have a technician paged to come look at it on a Sunday. That was followed by this exchange when I walked into my local Dunkin' this morning... DD employee #1: Hi, what can I get you? Me: Hi, I'd like a medium iced coffee with two milks and two sugars. DD employee #1: (reaches for hot coffee cup) Me: Sorry, that's an iced coffee. DD... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! I guess fall is finally here for real now, huh? I guess that's fair, since it's almost October. Part of me doesn't love the dropping temperatures. However, the rest of me almost cried tears of joy last night when I was finally able to get to sleep without issue because it was the first time this week the bedroom wasn't a sauna. Even BDH and Little Buddha slept better. Speaking of our dynamic duo, they're telling me that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Friday...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I had a brain cramp and showed up to yesterday's dentist appointment about an hour late. However, there was still enough time to confirm that I need to schedule gum surgery soon. Sweet. It won't be for at least a few weeks from now, but the dentist gave me the post-surgery care sheet anyway. I gave it to BDH and Little Buddha when I got back. It's unclear where hot beverages fit into this, but their eyes got big when they realized we might have to skip... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Things are generally okay on this end at the moment. I was out for three straight nights this week, so I'm pretty sure I've used up all of my social activity energy for the remainder of the year. That's fair, right? Well, there are still a couple of Red Sox games left, but other than that, I'll see everyone again in 2018. Obviously I'm just kidding...probably. Of course, BDH, Little Buddha and I will still be here to sort through the headlines with all of you, so that counts as being social, right?... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Once again, moving a little slowly in Clutter Headquarters this morning, thanks to another night with friends. Pretty sure Bill Clinton was still in office the last time I was out on consecutive evenings. BDH certainly has no memory of it, so Little Buddha had to explain to him that it happens every once in a blue moon. The conversation got a little off track though, because BDH was excited to hear that the moon was blue like him. They're still talking about that, but fortunately, they were also... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Happy Friday! Any big plans for the weekend? I don't think we have anything too crazy on on the schedule here at the moment. Mostly just enjoying the garden while we still can this year. Where does the time go? Well, I can't dwell on that too much right now, or I'll be bummed out for the rest of the day. BDH and Little Buddha suggest that I focus on the fact that it looks like today should be a lovely day weather-wise. They're so smart. They also recommend that... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Everything is fine here at the moment. In fact, we don't really have much to report, so let's get right to work. There's a fresh pot of coffee waiting for you, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter. Last night's battle between Chris Sale and Carlos Carrasco was supposed to be a real pitchers' duel. However, the beauty of baseball is that things don't always go the way you expect them to. Neither pitcher had a good outing, and the end of the night, the... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Besides being overheated, that is? This weather is brutal. I don't know how BDH and Little Buddha manage to stay so cool in weather like this. They're just two cool cats. Speaking of our dynamic duo, they thought we should take a peek through the headlines since we've still got some time before this afternoon's Red Sox game. Works for me. As always, they've got fresh coffee for you, or you can have some ice water if you prefer. Help yourself to whatever yo like, and let's... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're all doing fine here at the moment. The big news of the day at Clutter Headquarters is that the scaffolding around the Clutter Tree finally came down this week. We were starting to think that was never going to happen! The Clutter Tree is significantly thinner now, which means the view has changed quite a bit around here. I had to explain to BDH and Little Buddha that there aren't as many places for them to go bird-watching now. They told me that's fine, and all they care about is that the... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I am dragging like a tired snail at the moment here. These Sunday night baseball games are brutal! I watched the Red Sox - Astros with Dad Clutter at his house last night, and by the time I got home and finally shut off my brain, it was some time after 2:00 in the morning. I'd probably still be asleep now, except that I didn't want to miss any of you! Oh well, keep the coffee coming. Speaking of coffee, there's a fresh pot ready, so help... Read more →
