About Me

Posted by Les Becker on February 23, 2008 in Little Bits of Stupid, Real Life |

For Carl, with tongue in cheek… As of February 23, 2008… My name is Les Becker. I’m 42 years-old, and I live in Northern Ontario, Canada with two teen-aged girls (one, I actually gave birth to!) and two cats (I didn’t give birth to either of them, though.). I don’t own a tuba. I do […]

Now, Where Was I…?

Posted by Les Becker on December 5, 2007 in Real Life |

“All Tuckered Out”Taken November 10, 2007 with Canon PowerShot A550 Apparently, I am becoming a bi-weekly (or is it “monthly”?) blogger. Much of the steps to this new life I’m building have had to take place off-line (I’m driving! I’m driving!), and by the time I get back in the house and get comfortable again, […]


Feeling a Little Trapped Here…

Posted by Les Becker on November 4, 2007 in Book Mentions, Photography, Writer's Block, Writing |

My bad habits are haunting me. I just couldn’t wait to start NaNoWriMo… until the start date, that is. Now, I’m restless and can’t seem to concentrate. Hmmm, my coffee cup is empty, excuse me a minute. The story is there. All I have to do is sit my ass down and write it. Geez, […]


I Did Something Bad.

Posted by Les Becker on September 13, 2007 in Finances, Music |

I spent money I don’t have on something I don’t need. That doesn’t make having it now any less necessary, mind you. Now that I’ve got the damned thing, it’s as necessary as the Internet. Or air. I went out to the dreaded mall. I went out with the best of intentions – to get […]

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 […]


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. […]

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 […]


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 […]


I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter…

Posted by Les Becker on September 22, 2005 in Little Bits of Stupid, Real Life |

So I’m walking home from the Day Job tonight after closing, with the cell-thingy in my ear. You know; the Little Doohickey (that’s a technical term, I swear). The “handsfree” over-the-ear-hide-in-my-hair-and-no-one-can-see-it-so-the-whole-city-thinks-I’m-wicked-weird-headset thing (Downtown Dennis calls me “Suzanne” for Ye Local Lurkers’ information). The thing the cat is wearing… This guy is chatting away in my […]
