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 119 - Oh, for a TARDIS with a view ...

We stayed up too late on this perfect summer evening enjoying the temperature and the company. A gentle breeze stirred the curtains. Once again, the Doctor saved history and returned to his time machine to fight another day. Oh, to be Amy Pond ...

Conversation progressed to the iconic, fanciful items that we would like to possess. The order is debatable. Mouse over any item for an explanatory link.

12. A flux capacitor
11. Ruby slippers
10. The 'blinky thing' to erase memory
9. Ewoks
8. Excalibur7. A talking sponge
6. A chakram
5. Babel fish
4. Room of Requirement
3. A sonic screwdriver
2. The Holodeck1. A TARDIS

No discussion of what you want is complete without considering what you don't want:

12. Tribbles11. Vogon poetry
10. A nasty little brother named Edmund to conspire with the White Witch9. Flying monkeys
8. Daleks
7. Ice-96. Kryptonite5. Frank N. Furter's Sonic transducer
4. Orcs3. Riker playing the trombone
2. One Ring To Rule Them All1. Wesley Crusher

What famous science fiction or fantasy icons do you want in your personal collection?
