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 118 - Mein Karma

Daily Kup ('Let's Call It A Weekend' edition)
Thanks to a generous person named Christy B who was moving and didn't have room for a 32" TV, I now have a HUGE television. My husband is overjoyed. I saw him pat it tenderly when he thought I wasn't looking.

The massive box o'black is easily the most noticeable object in the room and nearly the heaviest. All the other furniture has turned toward it as if to worship. Every time my husband walks through the room, he says as if for the first time, "That's BIG."

After being one-half of the carrying team up and down stairways, I can corroborate the fact that it is indeed big and also has pointy pieces of plastic exactly where one needs to hold onto the bottom of the case.

This wonderful and unexpected act of karma came from idly perusing the FreeCycle site and swiftly responding to an offer ad that had just been entered. To comply with the 'pay it forward' underpinnings of FreeCycling, I'll pick something destined for my garage sale in August and offer it to someone in the FreeCycle community who may need it. Given the adoring looks that my husband is giving the new TV, maybe he should deliver up the karmic object from his trove of unnecessary items.

Great sites for giving or receiving excess functional items:

Strange Brew

I don't know what you call these metal things from the tops of barns, but I like them. Steeples? There is a farm near Annandale with this iconic collection on the lawn near the highway.
