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 104 - Kreative Writing

Daily Kup (What I Did On My Reality Vacation)
Note to self: This playing Guitar Hero until 2:30 AM has simply got to stop. It is in complete opposition to reducing caffeine consumption. You can have one or the other, but not both. Well, actually, you can't have the first one. Grace Slick said, "I don't like old people on a rock and roll stage. . . me included" and she should know. She also said, "No matter how big or soft or warm your bed is, you still have to get out of it." All fake guitar-playing ... and drumming ... and singing ... must be completed before midnight.


I went to another class sponsored by The Loft today. As mentioned in previous posts, The Loft is a local literary center offering resources for writers of all stripes. The aim of the class was to suggest tools that would permit business and technical writers to break out of that mindset and be able to write creatively. That's not easy to do after writing hundreds or thousands of policies, procedures and emails.

"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways ... in accordance with ISO 9001:2008, section 8.4, Analysis of Data."

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way. Please refer to the attached Porkus organizational chart, figure 3, for a more detailed description of the hell-bound."

"Call me Ishmael. Our trained service reps are standing by to bring you the highest quality at the most affordable price. That's 1-800-474-6235 (ISMAEL), the technical service you've been hunting for!"

Shot of Espresso (Bringing You a Surreal Craigslist Moment)
I saw this ad on Craigslist recently. It's hard to really know what to say about it. So many possibilities, so little time.

I am looking for at least 2 dark brown hens. Will take more. They are a present for my dad, there is a long story behind it. My grandma who sadly passed away dressed as a chicken one year. My dad has been a little down since then and this will cheer my dad up. We have already made the coop without him knowing and just need the chickens.
