The Loudest Man I Ever Slept With…

Posted by Les Becker on July 24, 2009 in R.I.P., Real Life, Video... |

Insomnia by Cat I took this video in May, when Sheikh was still sleeping above my head. Not very long ago, he was his usual fat and fluffy self, but then became boney and light as air in a few short weeks. He eventually stopped eating altogether. He hid out most of the time, and […]

I Think I’m Awake, Now…

Posted by Les Becker on March 16, 2009 in Blog-Family, Real Life |

Hiding…© Kyla BeckerTaken March 14, 2009 with Canon PowerShot A550 Okay, so maybe it hasn’t been “hiding”, so much, as that I’ve been “doing”. Maybe, it’s been more like hibernating. I’ve been working and sleeping and getting up long enough to go to work and not much of anything else since the New Year rolled […]

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, […]

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 […]

He Saw Dead People…

Posted by Les Becker on September 27, 2008 in Other People's Stories... |

So, after a lovely Tilapia dinner, The Cook – oops – Kitchen Manager – no, make that Soon-To-Be-Revealed Self-Named Story-Teller, told me his earliest memory. It was a memory that’s haunted him his whole life (and he’s even older than me, so you know that’s a whole lotta life to be haunted), and I really […]

Where Did the Time Go?

Posted by Les Becker on March 16, 2008 in Real Life |

Where Did the Time Go?Taken March 1, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 Whew! That was a hiatus I would rather not have taken. The Real World sucks compared to this one, it really does. That said, it could be added that my time “away” basically consisted of two types of events: losses and gains. These […]
