Ruby’s Restaurant…

Traffic Jam!

This is what I get for complaining about losing against Ruby in cribbage. I don’t know where her luck (er… talent?) comes from, but after winning my second game in about 8 1/2 years (!!!) against her a couple of weeks ago, I was very disgruntled tonight to see that she’s back on her winning […]

The Next New Thing…

Summer Daydream

Ky’s finally sleeping again, and is back to school for her morning classes, which is good. I’m assured by the school that she’ll manage to get those credits without a problem – music class, which is hardly surprising (the principal tells me she’d have passed that one based on her talent, never mind that she […]

“Money Isn’t Real, George…”

Birds on a Wire

In the movie, “Blow”, George’s dad tells him that money isn’t real. “It doesn’t matter, Georgie…” My dad would have disagreed with that one. I sure as hell disagree with that one. I am about to embark on a legal battle of epic proportions. Well… Epic for me. The Sire has gone AWOL. That still […]

Just for the Laugh…

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

The Good, the Bad, and the Downright Creepy…

Posted by Les Becker on May 27, 2007 in Amazon Products, Gift Shop, Little Bits of Stupid, Movie Mentions, Real Life |

The Good I slept last night! Oops. I guess I mean the night before last. Friday night, anyway. I’ve been having sleep concerns since before I quit the Dream Job; it’s a big part of the reason I quit to begin with. Still wide awake, staring at walls, ceilings, clocks, tvs, computer screens, or the […]


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. […]

Another Shock Over Coffee…

Kurt Vonnegut: 1922-2007 It (almost) never fails when discussing favourite authors, that I discover that pretty much everybody on the planet has heard of Kurt Vonnegut, but if pressed hard enough, will eventually admit that they never actually read anything by Kurt Vonnegut. Come on, really?! Slaughterhouse 5 was assigned reading in one of my […]


Bridge to Terabithia

Posted by Les Becker on February 18, 2007 in Book Mentions, It Helps If the Whole Family Is Crazy, Movie Mentions |

Ky and I went to see the movie tonight. I don’t know why I never read that book – until Kyla mentioned a school assignment about it (she’s already read it twice), I had never even heard of it. I’m so ashamed of myself. The movie was wonderful. I have never been quite that enthralled, […]

Thanks, Bastard Who Sent Me This Meme. Thanks A LOT.

Posted by Les Becker on June 6, 2006 in Blog-Family, Little Bits of Stupid, Movie Mentions, Wasted Time... |

Here we go folks… sigh…* ‘Tis the Season to be Meme-ing… 5 things in my fridge. 1. An odd smell… 2. Cheese. 3. Three containers of mostly full margarine. 4. “A macaroni & cheese casserole that turned into a science experiment several weeks ago.” Is that what that was…? I feel sick… 5. Lightbulb. (aside […]
