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 236 - The Joker's Resume

Daily Kup (My Life as a Gainfully Unemployed Person)
The most exciting event that happened today was the annual Turkey Bingo evening at the elementary school. "I-27! I-27!"

We did not win a turkey this year. At least Attila the Son did not kick the giant inflatable turkey this time. In the car, he said to me, "Sometimes I'm embarrassed by you guys." This from the Jean-Claude Van Damme of the playground from his prime position on the principal's speed dial. I said, "Right back at ya, kid."

The kids' minds wandered about eight calls into the game, so we found ourselves watching multiple cards. I volunteered to dish up the free popcorn and several hundred small baskets were given out. It was a lot of fun and it's gratifying how many more people we know this year than last, counting the ones from all the activities and not the ones we know from having to write apologies for being punched at recess.

Freshly Shaken Off The Resume Tree
I've taken a fresh look at my resume to tailor it to some of the latest opportunities. I wonder if the professional resume preparers start to see everything within that framework.
