Hey everyone, We're back! BDH and Little Buddha just asked me if we could invite you all over this afternoon. Apparently they didn't get enough of you this morning. (In case you haven't figured it out yet, they're rather big fans of yours.) Of course, I can't say no to those smiling faces, so, here we are! I need to do a food shopping, so unfortunately, we can only offer you coffee or water right now. Or tea, I guess. Yeah, we have some green tea. Just let the dynamic duo know what you want, and let's see what else... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? Moving a little slowly here at the moment. I woke up in the middle of the night with a serious headache that still hasn't left yet, which is a bit of a drag. However, with BDH and Little Buddha in my corner, we push forward. How about that storm yesterday, huh? Did you get a lot of snow? I think we got about five inches here. The roads seem to be clear now, but rather than going to the gym, I think today's workout will be trying to clear the snow from around... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Are you ready for today's big storm? BDH and Little Buddha want to know if we can watch movies all day. I don't have any problem with that, so they're going to see what's available On Demand. However, first things first. They tell me that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter while we wait for Stella to arrive. It's good to hear that Steven Wright's first spring training appearance of the year went well yesterday. The knuckleball pitcher said he didn't worry at... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I don't know if Daylight Saving Time actually serves any useful function, but I didn't have to turn on the lights here until about 7:00 last night, which is about 2.5 hours later than the winter solstice, so that's all I need. My body clock is finally back in sync with the world, and it's all good....apart from the freezing temperatures and oncoming nor'easter. Other than that? All good. Of course, the one thing that could make it even better is coffee. There's a fresh pot ready... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's your weekend going so far? Sorry we're late meeting up today. I had some things I had to take care of first thing this morning, but I get cranky when we don't hang out, so the rest of the to-do list can wait until we're done here. By the way, speaking of being late, don't forget to move your clocks an hour forward tomorrow. I want to make sure we're all here at the same time to discuss this coming week's snowstorm. Yay, spring! Anyway, that's all tomorrow. As far as today goes, we've got... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I'm fine, except that I woke up thinking that today was Friday, and BDH and Little Buddha had to remind me that it's Thursday. I was a little disappointed about that, but then they told me to think of it as having something to look forward to tomorrow. They're small, but they're wise. They also told me that no matter what day it is, they would make the best coffee in town, and that's just a fact. There's a fresh pot ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? It's looking pretty grey out there right now. I guess it's supposed to rain for a good part of today into tomorrow. The Clutter Tree won't mind that one little bit. The coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter. As far as Boston Red Sox prospects go, Sam Travis is probably the one we're looking forward to seeing most during this year's spring training trip. The Sox seem pretty convinced he's their first baseman of the future, and he's off to a... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Happy Friday to you all. Glad to see we all made it through another week in one piece. I can't keep up with this weather. There's snow, it all melts, the wind seems like it's going to take us (and the Clutter Tree) to the Land of Oz, and now tomorrow's supposed to have a high of about 17 degrees, like it's only early March or something. Wait, now they're talking about snow squalls tonight. Well, at least the daily amount of sunlight continues to increase. I think tonight's sunset... Read more →


Mental Health Monologue: Addiction with a Dash of Obsession

The following is neither fact nor fiction, nor is it a cry for help. It's simply the first in a series of stories... (Staring out the window, avoiding eye contact) Of course I don't "have" to do this. I want to do it. It makes me feel better, but I can stop whenever I want to. I've gone hours without doing it. Hell, I've gone days without doing it. I don't know if I've gone weeks, but if not, it's only because I haven't tried yet. I could totally do that. (Turning to look at the other person) Completely stop?... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Sunday to you! How are we all doing? We had another day of ridiculously nice temperatures here yesterday, followed by a brief downpour that sounded like it was coming down inside the walls, which was then followed by some intense wind that had me thinking we were off to meet the Wizard at any moment. I'm sure that's nothing to worry about. A little more than half of the garden is now visible, which is a treat, but given that it's still February, I'm not sure how long that's going to last. Who...
