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 184 - Roll On

Daily Kup (Climbing the Ladder of Success)
The beautiful fall weather is here and the housepainting has begun in earnest. I'm feeling pretty good about the progress made today, though that's probably because my muscles haven't seized up yet. Tomorrow when I can't raise my arms over my head will be a different story.

Unfortunate Segue
It was in the news today that the president of Segway, those two-wheeled personal transportation device company, was accidentally killed when the segway he was riding took him over a 30 foot cliff into a river. A solid 98% of me understands that this is not funny and is sad for the poor man's family. The mutant 2% of my psyche is making Thelma & Louise and Evel Knievel jokes.

It's like when Orville Redenbacher died. He left this world for a butter place. He was cremated, no salt.

Videos featuring segways are surprisingly common, but it's hard to beat this old favorite from parody king Weird Al Yankovich. And, yes, that's Donny Osmond dancing in the background.
