How It All Went Down (Raising Itself Up in the Process)…

Posted by Les Becker on December 31, 2008 in Real Life, Zenishness... |

As I sit here at 10:14 AM, with my second Cuba Libre half-full/half-empty – pick what suits you (Now, don’t be mad, Mom. I work nights. This is my 10 PM, remember?) – I’m trying to reflect on 2008, choosing words that actually describe it properly. The only words I can come up with are, […]

The Bear Hunter

Bear Claw

I found this bear claw in a box full of little trinkets and treasures in my father’s closet nearly a year ago. It was in the same box with his pocket watch, along with some other neat stuff. This was during my Walk-About days, when I would hoof it all the way across town once […]

Just for the Laugh…

Posted by Les Becker on December 10, 2008 in Little Bits of Stupid, Movie Mentions, Video... |

Saving Grace. My New Favourite Movie. This bit is the funniest movie scene I’ve ever played over and over and over again… which I continue to do. Gotta love Craig Ferguson! Not-So-Random Song for the Day: “Little Green Bag” – George Baker Selection

Whew! I Need That “Slow-It-All-Down” Button Again…

Posted by Les Becker on December 9, 2008 in Finances, Real Life |

Busy, wow! I’m loving the night shift, but will have to re-learn “day-shift mode” for the weekends until at least after the New Year, beginning this Sunday, when I start working days for Louie. That will only be on the weekends, mind you – I’m not sure yet how I’ll deal with working 7 days […]

Sometimes, Wishing is Enough…

Posted by Les Becker on November 27, 2008 in J.O.B., Zenishness... |

My boss called me today. Asked me to come in to work to “have a little talk.” Scared the shit out of me. I LOVE my job. I want to keep my job. The only thing I don’t like about my job is my seeming inability to negotiate gracefully between day shifts and night shifts, […]

What to Post When You Can’t Keep a Train of Thought on Its Rails…

Posted by Les Becker on November 23, 2008 in Little Bits of Stupid, Photography |

Trojan MooseTaken July 7, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 Yeah, yeah, I know I said I *hate* these things not two posts ago, but…The Best Memes in Life Are Stolen. Elle said that, so it must be true. Stole this from Elle, who stole it from Angelika, who stole it from Why Are You Stalking […]

Good God, What Day is This?!

Posted by Les Becker on November 18, 2008 in J.O.B., Real Life |

Bright RawTaken March 16, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 I’m not kidding, either. My days are like this: get up, eat, shower, dress, eat again, pack a lunch, cross the street to work, where I suck back 8 to 10 cups of coffee, eat one lunch, buy another, eat everybody else’s leftovers, dance in the […]

Guess What I Found on the “Dance Floor”…?

Posted by Les Becker on November 7, 2008 in Little Bits of Stupid, Radio Les |

Right, so I worked a night shift today (or last night), and have not yet slept, although I’m working through the night again tomorrow (or today [or tonight]). You’ll have to excuse me; my brains have had a stir. See above. It’s a lonely vigil, the night shift. There’s nobody else to dance with, for […]

I *HATE* These Things…

Posted by Les Becker on October 31, 2008 in Little Bits of Stupid, Real Life |

…but Suzi tagged me with a meme, and I’ll do it because she kinda scares me (she drinks MOLD!). Before I get to that, though, I would like to point out the peacefulish picture above. That’s how life has been lately, although I’m pretty much either at work, or asleep. That’s right – I said […]

Bloggers Say the Darn’dest Things…

Posted by Les Becker on October 8, 2008 in Blog-Family, Little Bits of Stupid |

Bloggers are pretty freaking funny. Lucky for me, ‘cuz I’ve been short of time of late, and recuperating after finishing The Waitress, the Whiskey & the Handcuffs. So I spent a little of what time was left over after “re-charging” (ahem…*) picking through my comments of last year. I’m paying homage to a bunch of […]
