Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. The sun is shining, and the birds are chirping away in the Clutter Tree this morning. What's the plan for this weekend? I'll be running around all over the place. There's a trip to Mom Clutter's house tomorrow, followed by a good friend's birthday party, and then a Red Sox game with Dad Clutter on Sunday. Geez, I'm already tired just thinking about it. However, we have business to take care of before any of that happens, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's close out... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Thursday to you all. The sun is shining this morning, which is great, but I won't lie, I'm hoping the forecast for scattered rain over the next couple of days holds up. I only say that because the Clutter Tree looks a little better after the showers we had Tuesday night-Wednesday. I'm still a little concerned about it, but hopefully some more water will help. In any case, that's the future, and this here's the present, so let's get to work. BDH and Little Buddha made some coffee, so help yourself to a... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? Week going okay so far? I've got a couple of meetings this afternoon, and I should probably try to get to the gym before that, so let's get to work. Help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter. President Obama announced a plan to gradually remove all U.S. troops from Afghanistan by 2016. I imagine there's no chance it will be sooner than that, but better (extremely) late than never. I'm pleasantly surprised to see that Jared Remy decided to skip a trial and simply plead guilty...

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? I'm a little worried about the Clutter Tree. Its leaves really are not blooming as fully as would be expected by this point in the year. I hope it just needs some water, and there isn't a larger problem here. Anyway, are you ready for the short week? BDH and Little Buddha have the coffee ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Tuesday Clutter. The nightmare is over! The Boston Red Sox snapped their 10-game losing streak with an 8-6 win over the Atlanta Braves. I... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? It's a quiet Sunday morning at Clutter Headquarters. I've learned during this little hiatus that I make a good egg and cheese breakfast sandwich, so I made those for everyone here, while BDH and Little Buddha made the coffee. We're a smooth-running machine here, I tell you. Anyway, we've got work to do, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday Clutter. A truly terrible story in California, as 22-year old Elliot Rodger killed six people and then himself on Friday night. There are so many issues... Read more →

Classic Clutter: Grandpa's Bag

I just had another new zipper put on my gym bag this week. The first tailor I went to told me that she couldn't replace the old one, nor would anyone else be able to do it. That was an unacceptable answer, and I'm happy she was wrong. Today's Classic Clutter explains why. Originally published: December 11, 2009 I have a very old gym bag. I mean, there’s a good chance that this bag is at least my age, maybe older. I love this bag and wouldn’t trade it for anything. That’s because this used to be my grandfather’s gym... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. You know, there are times where I'm particularly impressed with myself for naming this site, because it's really a perfect title. My head has felt especially cluttered for the last two weeks, I think ever since Mother's Day, and it's tiring. One of the main benefits of this hiatus is that I was in serious need of downtime, and it's largely been helpful, but it also leads to periods where it I have no distractions from the impact of losing Mom Clutter, and that pushes me into a bad head-space. At this point in my life,... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? Week going okay? Sorry we were MIA yesterday. BDH and Little Buddha were having so much fun at the park, they just didn't want to come inside, and then once we did, it was time for a nap, then dinner, and then next thing you know, it's Thursday morning. Speaking of which, the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. It's been a rough stretch for the Boston Red Sox since the last time we hung out. First we have Tuesday night's game... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I'm sorry we couldn't hang out yesterday. The Clutter was already to be cleared out, when our hosting company Typepad.com went off-line for the day again, supposedly as the result of another computer attack. I say "supposedly," because I don't trust anything those folks have to say. It's hard for me to think of a company I deal with that has worse customer service. Their Twitter feed (@typepad) doesn't provide any useful information during these situations, and all they say is that they'll be back ASAP, but no timetable is ever provided. This... Read more →

Belated Monday Clutter

(Publisher's Note: Sorry for the late post. Typepad.com went down again yesterday, and once service was restored, it became clear that half of this Clutter disappeared. We'll be back with a full round of randomness soon, but here's a warm-up for now.) Hi everyone, Welcome back. How are you? Excited for a new week? Well at least the sun is out, so that's a start. BDH and Little Buddha have the coffee ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Monday Clutter, shall we? The Boston Red Sox continue to slide in the wrong...
