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 →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Are you all ready for today's big eclipse? I couldn't find any glasses which would fit BDH and Little Buddha, so we'll be looking straight ahead this afternoon, which is probably just as well. It's always easier to see where we're going when we do that. In the meantime, we've got plenty of fresh coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Monday Clutter. The Boston Red Sox took care of business and beat the New York Yankees 5-1 on Sunday. Rick Porcello gave up just three... 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 →


I don't think anxiety used to be such an issue for me. It's probably always been there to some extent, but the events of the last seven years have made it a larger challenge on a regular basis. I'm always trying to find the balance between taking as much control over my life as possible and still recognizing that there may be times where the world just has other plans, and there's nothing I can do about it. Some days, that's a bigger fight than usual. There's also a specific subset of anxiousness for me which has to do with... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I got stung by a bee in the garden yesterday. First time that's happened in ages. My initial reaction was that it seemed pretty rude, considering how much work I put into being a good host for him and his friends every summer. Then I realized it was probably my fault. He was in a pile of weeds I had forgotten about earlier, and I probably startled him when I picked up the pile. In other news, it's pretty gloomy outside here at the moment. The weather forecast originally called for rain for... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're dragging a bit on this end at the moment. Sunday night baseball games are brutal. 8:05 p.m. is too late to begin with, and you know it's going to go long when we're talking about the Red Sox and Yankees. However, it's all worth it when the Sox win. Plus, BDH and Little Buddha said they'd make the coffee a little stronger this morning. They're the best. Anyway, enough whining, we've got work to do. Help yourself to a nice medium (slightly stronger than usual) DD, and let's clear out some Monday... 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 →
