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 90 - Random Konniptions

Daily Kup (What I Did On My Reality Vacation)
Looked for jobs. No further midget stripping opportunities. Also attended a picnic at a local park to commemorate the end of the Little League season. Great food and fun. A little bit of unintended humor in watching the adult kickball league on the adjoining diamond. What possesses a grown man to have the nickname "Old Balls" stitched on the back of his team jersey?

Short Latte
College Daughter wants to know just how short I would have to be in order to qualify for any further Tiny Dancer opportunities. The term "midget" is pejorative and a hangover from the carnival days of exploitation, something that the people placing the ad may not have taken into consideration when planning this surprise party. Makes you wonder about the circumstances. Twins Peaks fans perhaps? The Little People of America have a limit of 4'10", though one can be waived in for being slightly taller under special circumstances. Check that one off the list.

Ever wonder what it says on those word-filled screens that flash by quickly at the end of Chuck Lorre sitcoms like Two and A Half Men and Big Bang Theory? The industry term for them is 'vanity cards' and Mr. Lorre has assembled them all on one website: http://www.chucklorre.com/. Many are hilarious, some are sad, and some make you wonder how he kept his job.
