Welcome back! How are you? Hopefully we won't have any more extended breaks between posts going forward. I swear, it was starting to get ugly around here. Just too much randomness piling up with no place to go! However, Typepad.com seems to think they have things under control, so let the fun resume. Help yourself to a nice medium iced DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter.
I went to Tuesday night's Boston Red Sox - New York Yankees game, and the 9-3 final score makes it sound closer than it actually was. Almost nothing (apart from a Big Papi home run) went right for the Sox, and then it started raining later in the game. However, I'm fine with all of that, because this was my first time using my new season tickets, and my seats are awesome. I'm in the sixth row behind the Boston bullpen, and it's a great view of the park. I had so much fun with that part, the actual disaster of a game didn't matter that much to me. (Something which will clearly change going forward.) We'll see how the rest of the games play out, but I'm ready to renew for the 2015 season at this point.
Yeah, this will do just fine. (pic via clearingouttheclutter.com)
Sorry to hear that the Red Sox optioned struggling outfielder Daniel Nava to the minors, though it's hard to argue with the decision. Nava is a great story of perseverance, and hopefully he'll eventually force the team to bring him back to the big leagues, even if it's with another club.
I've been cleaning up/out my office as my final day at work draws closer. Today's was to transport a plant, which I've had in a vase for almost two years, home on the T. First off, this was the first time I took the plant out of said vase, and I swear the roots are almost as long as I am tall. So I gently placed the plant in elaborate wrapping of damp and dry paper towels, put it in my briefcase, and rode the subway home, acting like I was transporting a live organ. I went to great lengths to make sure no one bumped into the briefcase, and as soon as I got back to Clutter Headquarters, I slowly undid the previously mentioned wrapping, like I was defusing a bomb. I'm happy to say the plant appears to be adjusting nicely. Now I just have to figure out how to get the other four here.
Warren Buffett seems to think the stock market is in medium-warm territory. It certainly doesn't seem like an environment for a lot of bargains, but he doesn't appear to think we're in bubble territory yet either.
Duke University doesn't strike me as the most supportive environment for a student in the porn industry.
Happy 100th birthday to Wrigley Field. Too bad the Chicago Cubs couldn't celebrate the anniversary with a win.
Stephen Colbert made his first appearance on The Late Show since it was announced that he'll be succeeding host David Letterman next year. Sounds like he got off to a good start.
Okay kids, that's going to do it for now. Apparently the Monty Python fellows have released a new song that will feature in their live shows this summer. Not entirely sure to make of it, perhaps it needs the context of how it fits into the show, but what the hell, let's make it today's, "Song of the Day."
Thanks for stopping by, everyone. It was great to see you, as always. Enjoy the rest of your day, and we'll see you back here again for more fun soon (Typepad.com permitting). Until next time, that's today's Clutter, and we are outta here.
