Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I was just reviewing today's to-do list with BDH and Little Buddha. It's not as hectic as yesterday, and the guys say the high temperatures will reach the mid-40's, so it should be a good day (even if the unseasonably warm temperatures are indicative of an oncoming global catastrophe.) Our fantastic duo also just made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter. House Democrats laid out the overwhelming evidence against Donald Trump yesterday, but Senate Republicans were busy working on their talking points for Fox... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's your week going so far? No complaints on this end. Today's to-do list is long as usual. BDH and Little Buddha asked me if I wanted them to take care of any of the errands. I told them it was a generous offer, but I'll handle those while they keep an eye on Clutter Headquarters, and then we can all watch some new "One Chicago" shows tonight. That sounded good to them, so that's the plan. First things first, let's check out today's headlines. The guys say the coffee is ready, so grab yourself a... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? It was 11 degrees outside the last time we all met up, and now BDH and Little Buddha say it's five degrees. We seem to be moving in the wrong direction. What is this, winter or something? My instinct is to stay under the covers for the day, but there are errands to run, the most important of which is a trip to the bookstore to find the guys something new to read. We all make sacrifices for the ones we love, right. The guys are expressing their gratitude with a terrific present... Read more →


We're back! Before we get down to business, let's first take a moment to wish Tom Baker a very happy birthday. The 4th Doctor turns 86 years old today! As is true for so many other fans, Tom Baker was our introduction to Doctor Who years ago. He shaped our perception of the Time Lord, and to some extent, we have seen every other version of the Doctor since then as a continuation of him. (That's probably unfair to everyone who has played the role.) He was a childhood hero who will always be a personal favorite, and we wish... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Monday to you all! A happy and cold Monday, I should say. It's about 11 degrees here at the moment, and it's not supposed to get all that much warmer, so we'll be looking to stay inside as much as possible today. This is also Martin Luther King Day, so I think I'll have BDH and Little Buddha read a biography of the civil rights leader, and then we can discuss his legacy later. That sounds like a plan. In the meantime, the guys say the coffee is ready, so grab yourself a... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I was just looking to see how much shoveling I have to do today. I'm pretty sure it's a light snow, so this might take a while, but it shouldn't be too bad (fingers crossed.) BDH and Little Buddha say it's going to warm up a bit later this morning, so maybe I'll water the plants first. Yeah, that sounds like a plan. The guys just made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday Clutter. Donald Trump's impeachment defense team... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy/chilly/windy Friday to you all! BDH and Little Buddha just checked the weather forecast, and today's high is supposed to be 24 degrees with a wind chill factor of 10 degrees. Yikes. I better find my scarf before I go outside. Thankfully, the heat just kicked in, so we should be fine here. What's on your schedule for the weekend? I don't think we've got anything too crazy scheduled. Anyway, we'll figure that out later. The guys just made a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. What's new? I'm just trying to figure out today's to-do list. Yesterday involved all sorts of running around, but today should be a little more relaxed, which is nice. Someone needs to do some cleaning around Clutter Headquarters. I asked BDH and Little Buddha if they wanted to do it, but they just smiled and left the room. I guess that's a no. However, the guys did come back with coffee, so that's a fair trade. Grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter. Indicted... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're all fine at the moment. The forecast called for a chance of some snow showers last night, but that apparently didn't happen, so there's no shoveling to deal with this morning, which is nice. However, there is a lot of running around on today's to-do list before tonight's new "One Chicago" episodes, so let's get down to business. BDH and Little Buddha say the coffee is ready, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Wednesday Clutter. As expected, the Boston Red Sox fired manager Alex...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I was a bit of a mess yesterday. Two nights of poor sleep makes things ugly around here. It got to the point that BDH and Little Buddha urged me to take a nap near the end of the day before I had a full-on tantrum. I set my alarm for 15 minutes but ended up hitting the snooze button so many times, it was more like two hours. There was some concern I might then not be able to get to sleep for the night, but that ended up not being an... Read more →
