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 178 - Songs That Lodge in Your Cranium 6 - 10

Daily Kup (My Life as a Middle-aged Mutant Ninja Turtle)
I'm hoping to get back to my writing assignments, and job searching, now that some progress has been made in the major home projects. The kids are now handily stacked, bunk-wise. Exterior projects are still periodic due to cycles of downpour and drying out. Trying to do what I can while it's still warm enough outside.

WARNING: Proceed at your own risk. Clinging tunes ahead.

I've had a song stuck in my head recently. I'd like to stick an auger in one ear and remove it, but I'm afraid that something worse would grow in its place. What could be worse?

Through scientific methodology and exhaustive review of data, my crack team of researchers (and some researchers on crack) have assembled the list of the top ten songs guaranteed to knit little doilies with your dentrites, to fulminate within your frontal lobes, and to macerate your medulla oblongata.

Listen to any of these selections at your own risk. If you are particularly sadistic — you know who you are — forward this to someone you don't like and advise them to listen to each one carefully for the secret message. These are not all the worst songs you might ever hear, though a couple are real stinkers, but they are the ones most likely to repeat in your brain until dulled by hammer blows.

10. Wannabe — The Spice Girls

9. 99 Red Balloons — Nena (The German version for grins. This is where I learned that German for 'Captain Kirk' is "Captain Kirk')

8. 867-5309/Jenny — Tommy Tutone

7. Barbie Girl — Aqua

6. Don't Worry, Be Happy — Bobby McFerrin

Think these are pernicious? Just wait until the top 5 tomorrow. Want to compare your taste in "adhesive" songs with that of the expert panel of Klowns? Leave a comment.
