Really? The Law Applies to Us, Too?

Posted by Les Becker on September 30, 2007 in It Helps If the Whole Family Is Crazy |

Apparently, for my family, “close” counts, not only in horseshoes and hand grenades, but also in trespassing. For as long as I can remember, my family has had an odd fascination with the idea of being arrested, to the point that certain family members will actually make serious attempts to go to jail, just so […]


I Am Not a Circus Performer

Posted by Les Becker on September 27, 2007 in Kyla Becker, Little Bits of Stupid, Photography |

I refuse to juggle anymore. It’s been one thing after another again lately. I dealt with the crowds of people all last week. I kind of thought I had it together there. I thought wrong. The shit continues to hit the fan. Most of the time it’s either not my shit, or not my fan. […]


The Wedding Singer

Posted by Les Becker on September 21, 2007 in It Helps If the Whole Family Is Crazy, Kyla Becker, Music, Radio Les |

My Un-Brother, Ken and his new wife Sylvia made the trip to visit us from Fort MacMurray to show off their new wheels – bought by the insurance company that covered the damage done from the freak hailstorm that hit ten minutes after they said “I Do.” Now, if that ain’t God talkin’, I don’t […]



Posted by Les Becker on September 20, 2007 in J.O.B., Photography |

I found this pic while digging through archives looking to fill up my new digital photography portfolio site. It’s been slow going, for several reasons: 1) There are huge numbers of photographs, on too many freaking discs, 2) None are categorized except by year, which sucks, ‘cuz I don’t want to see most of them, […]


What Is It?

Posted by Les Becker on September 18, 2007 in J.O.B., Photography, School |

Yes, just here to educate y’all, and have some fun in the process… I’m having fun playing with my camera again. And this is a really cool thing. The whole picture is at the bottom of the post. In other news, I applied to another School-Wasn’t-a-Waste job today. The money would be much better than […]


The Bee Keeper

Posted by Les Becker on September 17, 2007 in The Father Chronicles |

My dad was the youngest of the six boys, and the only kid younger than he was, was my Aunt Lynne – the only girl in the family – and probably pretty much spoiled for it. Since my Dad was the youngest of the boys, he was the one left on the farm to help […]

David says G,day – Sheikh says “Quack”

Posted by Les Becker on September 15, 2007 in Blog-Family, J.O.B., Little Bits of Stupid |

David McMahon has very generously offered his expertise to the Internet at large… “In view of the fact that all bloggers are writers (but not vice versa!) I was wondering if you could help me with one of my major aims. I recently started a daily post on tips for writers, called `Telling Write From […]


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 […]

Jeans that Fit (and other things)

Posted by Les Becker on September 12, 2007 in Little Bits of Stupid |

I went shopping today, if you could call it that. I hate stores; I hate shopping in general. In particular, I hate shopping for clothes. Unfortunately, I have no suitable attire for job-hunting/interviews, so I was forced to go shopping. Ugh. I also have that “no income” thing going on, so I went to one […]


Where I’m At…

Posted by Les Becker on September 10, 2007 in Real Life, School |

The school deadline has passed. I have three exams left to write (I may want to consider studying for those at some point this week). My last assignment for the Flash Experience Design course was an interesting one, and I got a great mark of 94% – I was pleased with that one. The final […]


I Wonder if She’s “Tessering”…

Posted by Les Becker on September 8, 2007 in R.I.P. |

1919-2007 Madeleine L’Engle, the author of “A Wrinkle in Time” and over 60 other books of fantasy, poetry and memoir, has died at the age of 88. She hated labels. My kinda gal.


Satch Is Rather Funny in his Own Right

Posted by Les Becker on September 7, 2007 in The Landlady |

Ruby’s nephew, Satch, is a lot like she is when it comes to being funny. Just like Ruby, he sometimes comes out with incredibly hilarious one-liners, and then wonders why everybody is laughing. The last time I saw him, we got talking about Sudoku, and how it both fascinates me and frustrates me at the […]
