I had some dreams ... they were klowns in my koffee.

(With apologies to Carly Simon)

This is my journey through job transition from a toxic environment to a better life. Join me for a few thoughts and a few laughs along the way.
What are "klowns in my koffee"? They are the factors large and small that make you less than you are. A "klown" can be a grossly incompetent boss,
a short-sighted policy or a moronic coworker. They won't kill you, at least not immediately, but they abrade the soul
as you scrape past them to get through the day. Sometimes it's best to dump them out of the cup.


Day 37 - LinkSync

This was a throw-away day spent going to baseball games and doing errands, just the perfect day for meandering through links.

Want to send that fabled Message in a Bottle and see what comes back? Try http://www.oceangram.com/ It's been interesting to watch this site develop over the years. They now boast an impressing array of bottle-themed gifts.

Speaking of messages in bottles and in the throes of an 80's flashback, here's Sting: http://s0.ilike.com/play#The+Police:Message+In+A+Bottle:14918:s141406.16877.8650394.1.1.10%2Cstd_4e5d408d158e588d61e4ec4e9f8fb2be

Sting is an avid supporter of preserving the Rain Forest and also advocates responsible population growth. Sting has six children so this was perhaps a realization that came to him later in life or maybe the rich are simply different. Want to keep track of the estimated world population? Go to Worldometers http://www.worldometers.info/.

Worldometers also tracks the amount of money spent on video games in the world. This would include Guitar Hero II where Sting's Message in a Bottle appears in set 2, "String Snappers." Want to gain a strategic advantage? Check out these cheat codes at Cheat Code Central http://www.cheatcc.com/. I'm intrigued by the code for GHii (http://www.cheatcc.com/xbox360/guitarhero2cheatscodes.html) that makes the audience appear with monkey heads.

As you progress through your mock rock career in Guitar Hero, each level finds you driving the van across the country to better venues and larger audiences ... that you could fill with monkeys, apparently. From the Rain Forest.

Planning your own road trip? Be sure to include the world's largest catsup bottle in Collinsville, Illinois.: http://www.catsupbottle.com/

How many people would it take to put a message in that bottle and throw it in the ocean? New category for Worldometers?

Having now gone full circle, is this Intranet synchronicity? The Skeptics Dictionary says that the concept of synchronicity is some crap that Freud's student, Carl Jung, thought up with his other batty ideas. http://www.skepdic.com/jung.html

But we all know that Synchronicity is Sting's fifth and final album with The Police. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synchronicity_(album)
