Not My Idea of a Spectacular Return – It’s All Suzi’s Fault…

Posted by Les Becker on May 9, 2007 in Little Bits of Stupid, School |

I had expected to come back here with a finished “Landlady Story”. Nope. Not finished. Then, I figured, I’d post the new cartoon I’m working on. Nope. Not finished. So, I thought, well, it’ll probably be Ky’s Spring Concert video. Sorry. Not rendered. Then, on my way back from a grocery run this afternoon, I […]


Possible Great and Amazing Disappearing Act Underway…

Posted by Les Becker on May 1, 2007 in J.O.B., School |

I’m having serious “time” issues. I’m finding myself squeezed in between The Day Job (AKA “school”), which is a full-time occupation, from which I actually fear being “fired” since I can’t seem to move forward through my courses, and The Dream Job, which has become more of a Nightmare Job, since I’m so behind in […]


We Interrupt This Blog to Bring You a Life…

Posted by Les Becker on March 25, 2007 in J.O.B., School, Writing |

Kind of amazing how life turns full circle. My job description: Writer, Director, Producer, soon-to-be Web Broadcaster, and, oh yeah, a little bit of Web Development thrown in – just ‘cuz I like to swear now and again. I got everything back that disappeared in January, only this time I’m getting paid. Okay, so I […]


I’m Too Old For This…

Posted by Les Becker on February 22, 2007 in Cartooning, School |

School, that is… my learning curve is close to non-existent, now, I think. It takes me forever to get the hang of things, and then, all of a sudden, it all comes clear. Hopefully, I can retain it, though, because I got a job offer. Fingers crossed, and all that. I got The Web Design […]

Not just this space, although I suppose it never looks like I’m doing much here, when I pull it all down again minutes later…. I’m working with CSS in school lately, rebuilding “old” html code. The worst part has been having to take html pages that have been written using caps – you know: <HTML><HEAD> […]


Snow Day!

Posted by Les Becker on February 7, 2007 in School |

Schools aren’t closed, but the buses are cancelled, which leaves me at home with a very happy child. It looks as if the recycling truck has been cancelled as well, although that remains to be seen. You notice those holes in the snowbank, though? That’s where the City Guys actually dug around and pulled out […]


Some Things are Not Blog Worthy…

Posted by Les Becker on October 28, 2006 in School |

. . . Okay, I’ve neglected the blog. It’s not that I’ve been too busy (although I’ve been busier the last two weeks than I’ve been in a long time). And it’s not that I’ve been cleaning my house, either, which my kid is sure to start a brand new blog about soon, if I […]


Day Two C’est Fini…

Posted by Les Becker on October 17, 2006 in School |

. . . I’m not enrolled in French, so I don’t care if that title is correct or not… but I got through Day Two in better fashion than yesterday. Once I left the school yesterday, the assistant to the Director called me at home to tell me everything got set up, so I logged […]


It’s Never What You Expect, Is It?

Posted by Les Becker on October 16, 2006 in School |

. . . Well, this was an odd day, to say the least… It was to be my first day of school, and I was up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to be ready to make my appearance at 9:30. My “normal” school day will be from 9 am to 2 pm or so, but today I […]


The Pressure is Off…

Posted by Les Becker on October 14, 2006 in Photography, Real Life, School |

. . . Well, some of it, anyway. I had my interview with the Biggest Wig in the complicated trail of paper to apply to get these courses I want. It was a long and freaky-deaky time for me, waiting to find out if they would allow me to do this, because I wanted two […]


Aaaack! Aaaack! Aaaack! Aaaack! Aaaack!

Posted by Les Becker on August 30, 2006 in Real Life, School, Wasted Time... |

Yes, that’s me screaming. I’ve lost all capability of scheduling my time. At the worst possible time, too. I have several articles started; some being flashes of absolute brilliance that I was bright enough to jot down into notepad while still blinded by the brilliance. Of course, on second, sober, daylight read-through, I realize that […]
