Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I understand we're going to get some snow today and tomorrow. As long as I don't have to drive in it, that's fine. I'd rather have the garden be covered up again if I still can't play in it for another two months or so. BDH and Little Buddha tell me that the coffee's ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter. Sorry, Red Sox fans: David Ortiz says he's not getting ready to play baseball this year. Yes, that still leaves wiggle room, so... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Hey, happy Friday the 13th to you all. Who here is superstitious about that? The staff here isn't overly concerned, but at the same time, we're happy not to have anything big planned for today. I think we'll call it a win if I make it through the day without re-injuring my thumb for any reason. Actually, one more thing would make it a win: coffee! BDH and Little Buddha have a fresh pot ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. This is... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? It's business as usual on this end at the moment. The thumb still hurts, which is a bit of an issue. It hasn't really gotten much better, although it hasn't gotten worse yet either. We'll give it a few more days. However, don't you worry, the injury hasn't kept us from making some coffee! We've got a fresh pot ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter! Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner will be given the role... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Everything is fine on this end at the moment. The team tells me that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter. Give them credit, the GOP doesn't leave any confusion about their priorities. The first thing the House GOP took care of this year was to gut the independent ethics office. Mind you, they haven't even begun this year's legislative session, that's how much of a rush they were in to gut this thing. This... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your week going so far? I have to say, Monday was solid on this end. I was productive, had fun (more on that in a second), treated myself to a small Christmas present that I really needed, and I just felt good for the day, which was great. It was such a nice day, I'm still focused on that, and not on the fact that it's currently -8 degrees outside right now. It's all about keeping perspective, my friends! Well, it's about that and coffee. It's always about coffee... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? We had a bit of a scare here yesterday. I went online early in the morning to look at a retirement account I left with a former employer, and when I logged on, the website said I had a balance of $0.00, with no explanation. It was 6:00 at the time, and their service line was closed until 8:00, so I spent two hours thinking I'd been hacked and had my money stolen. That was fun, as BDH and Little Buddha spent the entire time telling me... Read more →


Hey everyone, How's your day going? It ended up being surprisingly productive on this end, considering how tired we all were, thanks to last night's Patriots game. I distinctly remember when staying up late felt like a reward. It made me feel like I was doing something only adults were allowed to do, and the world was somehow a different place after 10:00 at night. Now, it's more of an endurance challenge. BDH and Little Buddha had to take a nap this afternoon, because there was just no way they were going to make it through the entire day otherwise.... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back. Come on in, have a seat. How are you? In a little bit of a funk at the moment here. I accidentally left the heat on much higher in Clutter Headquarters than I intended while I was gone, and when I got back, I discovered a number of plants who were very mad at me. These are basically my kids, and I feel like a neglectful parent right now. Thankfully, most of them seem to be recovering, following last night's emergency watering, but a couple still need some help, and I'll do whatever it takes to... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Happy Saturday to you all. What's the schedule for the day? I've got a few errands to take care of once we're done here, and I'm already in procrastination mood, which isn't a good sign. I'll just have to push through that, because this needs to be a productive day. Plus, I have to get out of Clutter Headquarters for a while so BDH and Little Buddha can work on their Christmas lists some more. For now, the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We are dragging on this end, thanks to the World Series. There's something particularly tiring about not getting enough sleep at this point of the year. I think it's because it was dark when we went to bed, and it was still pitch black outside when we woke up. BDH and Little Buddha asked me if we actually slept at all. I assured him that we had, but I think he could sense I wasn't entirely positive about that. Anyway, those two were kind enough to make the coffee extra strong, so help... Read more →
