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 216 - A Little TOO Much Reality

Daily Kup (My Midlife Crisis is Going Well. Thank you for asking.)
The weather taunts me with its sudden jumps to 50 degrees that suddenly seems like beach weather after the last couple of windy and cold days. It whispers tantalizingly, "Not quite warm enough to paint" and smirks through falling leaves. It will be the right temperature to mow and pull out annuals, however, so my exciting weekend is planned.

I spent most of the day bringing my Daisy obligations to completion. Troop 15350 now has a splendid if a bit cookie cutter website. Booya!

Second Acts Part 2
Yesterday we talked about Vanilla Ice and other marginal or post-bloom performers who have managed to branch to unexpected careers with an associated reality TV series when their day day job quit them.
How about the career shifts that we'd really like to see? Who could not resist these reality TV shows:

Florence Henderson, America's favorite TV mom according to her website, as the new boat captain on Deadliest Catch.

Mrs. Brady runs a clean ship she does ... because guest star Ann B Davis as "Alice" vacuums every day. But Florence can swear with the best of them when a net gets a hole in it. Hilarity ensues when the crew of the Time Bandit pledges that Davy Jones will perform at the prom. Marcia, Marcia, Marcia.

Woody Allen as the host of the Marriage Ref.

The aging director explains how his personal relationships have been so successful and coaches others on his upbeat and optimistic approach to life.

Roseanne Barr and her Kvetching Workout.

Lose weight the way your grandma did, by complaining loudly and poking your finger in people's faces. Those jowls and upper arms have never looked so taunt!

Sly uses weaponry to straighten out unruly toddlers ... and their parents, too.

Two problems -- the little dog freezes to the tire when he pees every 30 miles and Paris gets tired of explaining that it's pronounced TRucker.
