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 173 - 'Tooth' in Advertising?

Daily Kup (My Life as a Gainfully Unemployed Person)
Another day with a lower than average temperature and more than average cloud cover. I job prospected -- imagine hunching over a pan of sand by a stream and trying to shake gold out of it -- and then cleaned and reorganized my office with increased productivity in mind. I would rather have been painting since the weather is so determined to tumble into autumn so quickly. Tick, tick, tick.

I was looking at the blog analytics yesterday and was blown away to learn that people in Denmark have been reading about my kidney stones. The adoption posts get a lot of international traffic and I can understand how people ride the SEO wave on that topic and are cast upon my shore. A few people even queried 'soffit installation' and ended up in this hinterland. But Danish kidney stones? Sorry, Danish people, if you were looking for medical advice. (Pause) I don't know any Danes. (Longer pause) I was an usher for a Victor Borge performance in my high school. He seemed nice when I met him backstage.

Can you pour me some more disappointment please?
I don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth ... or a book about mouths in the mouth, but don't you think that this is a letdown for a kid who has been promised a special treat for putting up with pain?

It may just be me, but the T3 Tough Tooth Team of Nutriboy, the Flossinator, and Brushetta are not that exciting.

Inside, there's a word find where only the vowels are missing. Some examples:

The connect-the-dots makes a woman riding a toothbrush.

Gosh, I hope Brushetta can solve the maze and get to the dentist's office without falling into the plaque.

Koffee Lite
From the marquee on a local church: Two silkworms had a race. They ended up in a tie.
