It May Just Be Spring, After All…

Posted by Les Becker on April 28, 2007 in Book Mentions, Photography, Real Life, The Walk-About |

I think it might be, because the smell outside my window smacks unmistakably of what can only be described as “Old Cat-Box”. Nasty analogy, I know, but there you have it. And the weather has finally been fine long enough for me to trust it. This is Canuckia, after all. It could start to blizzard […]


In Pursuit of a Dream… Take 2

Posted by Les Becker on April 27, 2007 in Artsy Fartsy, Little Bits of Stupid, Projects, The Father Chronicles |

I have been forcibly “de-funkified”. I really should thank Carol for doing it with her nasty comments (and even nastier private emails), but I’m not quite ready to do that, because, truthfully, I don’t think I’m quite ready to be “de-funkified” at all. But she’s right. Wallowing in it, publicly or privately, only makes things […]

Metaphorically Speaking….

Posted by Les Becker on April 25, 2007 in Real Life, Wasted Time... |

Something came along/happened/was said that slammed me back about six years. I’m kind of in a box now, and I haven’t slept very much since. I have things that need to be figured out and I haven’t got a clue how to go about it. I know this will somehow “work itself out”, as my […]


Meet the New Driver…

Posted by Les Becker on April 17, 2007 in J.O.B., Little Bits of Stupid |

“He’s a foreigner.” We went to record the sound for a commercial – a 45-minute job. I think I got home two and a half hours later. First things first…. we got lost. Well, we weren’t exactly lost lost – we knew where we were. But the client’s store was sure lost! Funny part is […]


Meet the New Camera…

Posted by Les Becker on April 15, 2007 in Little Bits of Stupid, Photography |

Louie took my camera away. Something about his Very Significant Other and Mexico (Damn, but I hate it when people go to Mexico without me! Don’t I, Suzi?). It’s all good, though. I got pissed (“How do you expect me to work without a camera?!”), and stomped down to the mall yesterday and bought a […]


Another Bridge Crossed…

Kyla came home from school yesterday with her book order: her very own copy of A Bridge to Terabithia. She’s read school copies several times already, and seen the movie in the theater three times now. She rushed in at 3:30, dropped the book in my hands, and rushed back out to her babysitting job. […]

Another Shock Over Coffee…

Kurt Vonnegut: 1922-2007 It (almost) never fails when discussing favourite authors, that I discover that pretty much everybody on the planet has heard of Kurt Vonnegut, but if pressed hard enough, will eventually admit that they never actually read anything by Kurt Vonnegut. Come on, really?! Slaughterhouse 5 was assigned reading in one of my […]


Happy BlogDay, Rhea!!

Posted by Les Becker on April 10, 2007 in Blog-Family, Little Bits of Stupid |

One Year and Counting… and… I stole this from OldGuy (and our brains are the same!!) I always suspected you were a whack-job, OldGuy… Your Brain is Purple Of all the brain types, yours is the most idealistic. You tend to think wild, amazing thoughts. Your dreams and fantasies are intense. Your thoughts are creative, […]


The Rabbit Came and Went…

Posted by Les Becker on April 9, 2007 in Artsy Fartsy, Oh Mother...! |

My mom entered an Easter Bonnet Contest with the bonnet Kyla made for her… We went to My Brother the Trespasser’s house for Easter dinner, so I made an Easter bonnet for myself… mind you, mine was a little less…. ummm…. elaborate. Not-So-Random Song-for-the-Day: “Easter Parade” – Judy Garland

This is SO. Unfair.

Just for one year I would like April to have no snow. Just once. Random Song-for-the-Day: “Girlfriend” – Avril Lavigne


Have You Heard the One About the Brass Monkey…?

Posted by Les Becker on April 1, 2007 in Photography, The Walk-About |

… and the freezing off of certain appendages…? That’s about how cold it was in the Sault yesterday morning. It looked so nice out, that I thought it would be a good time to go out on a Walk-About, and play with the Not-Crappy Cam I now have in place of the Crappy Cam. I […]
