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 144 - A Slide Headfirst

Daily Kup (What I Did on my Reality Vacation)
The reining in of the wild children continues. A full 75 math sheets have been completed and I haven't had to (figuratively) have my knee in anyone's back since page 50. They are doing their schoolwork and chores with the understanding that they can do it the easy way or the hard way. The easy way is starting to win.

As we approach the completion of back-to-school preparations, I took the moppets to have their sculls sheared. I usually cut their hair but had a failure of confidence in lieu of the TV commercial filming on Friday. The fear of sneezing and cutting short a budding entertainment career drove me to Fantastic Sam's. With a coupon, of course.

Attila the Son returned with a Justin Bieber-like swath of bangs. He was beaming and couldn't resist bubbling in the car, "I feel FANTASTIC." Oh, great. Another one always looking in the mirror...

A Shot of Espresso Like a Kick to the Head

The LA Times reported on a link between incorrect diagnoses of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and head injuries. //www.latimes.com/health/boostershots/la-heb-brain-trauma-20100817,0,846320.story?track=rss

Yes, this implication is that Lou Gehrig may not have had Lou Gehrig's disease at all, but may have died from repeated head trauma from concussions suffered playing high school and college football and professional baseball. He was also knocked out in a fight with Ty Cobb. Being hit in the head is apparently bad for you, according to the latest pronouncements of medical science.

I wonder who is buried in Grant's Tomb?
