Say “Apple”.

Axe Murderers Don’t Wear PlaidTaken March 21, 2009 with Canon PowerShot A550 I know this post is so late that it’s near unforgivable. Here I am at last, though, having killed Photoshop and reanimated it so that I can use it again. Our Detroit trip shrunk a little… thankfully. My sad attempt at “pre-planning” failed […]

I Think I’m Awake, Now…

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 […]

Bloggers Say the Darn’dest Things…

Posted by Les Becker on October 8, 2008 in Blog-Family, Little Bits of Stupid |

Bloggers are pretty freaking funny. Lucky for me, ‘cuz I’ve been short of time of late, and recuperating after finishing The Waitress, the Whiskey & the Handcuffs. So I spent a little of what time was left over after “re-charging” (ahem…*) picking through my comments of last year. I’m paying homage to a bunch of […]

Calling All Betches and Shetbags…

Posted by Les Becker on May 29, 2008 in Blog-Family, Little Bits of Stupid, Video... |

Y’all know how much I love Kelly of the Shoes. Well, when I heard she had a cameo in the new Weezer video (along with Chris Crocker, if you can believe it), I had to go check it out, of course. And then I found this. Made my day. 😀 Not-So-Random Song for the Day: […]

We Have Our Winner!

“You’re not Morgan Freeman!” The winning caption was written by Dale of Passion of the Dale, a fellow Canuckian, I might add. No, I didn’t “fix” it. I’m not that patriotic. And those that didn’t win, not to mention those that didn’t enter the contest (shame on you!), can get a copy of Natalie d’Arbeloff’s […]

Colour Me Embarrassed…

Remember this!? Oh, yeah, that! I remember that! Now. I posted it on February 11th. Ahem…* I don’t like breaking promises. I didn’t break this one, thankfully, so much as delayed it. By a loooooong time. Cardiogirl, my shetbag of a partner in crime and caption-contest-hosting, is blaming herself for this delay. I’m trying to […]

Attention, Please.

Posted by Les Becker on October 30, 2007 in Blog-Family, Writing |

Please welcome Plumeria to the Blogosphere. She’s new to this bloggery thing, but spreading her digital wings and man, oh man, can she write! I’m not kidding. Read. She’s amazing. I’m fighting jealousy over her eloquence, and I’m not even half-joking when I say that. Now’s the time to get to know her, and make […]


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 […]


Retribution, At Last…

Posted by Les Becker on August 19, 2007 in Blog-Family, Little Bits of Stupid |

David McMahon wants to know: “What would you like to say to the girlfriend or boyfriend who first dumped you?” After much soul-searching and heart-delving back into the summer of 1976, I believe I would say: “You owe me half a strawberry soda.” Random Song for the Day: “Java” – Al Hirt


Happy BlogDay, Rhea!!

One Year and Counting… and… I stole this from OldGuy (and our brains are the same!!) I always suspected you were a whack-job, OldGuy… Your Brain is Purple Of all the brain types, yours is the most idealistic. You tend to think wild, amazing thoughts. Your dreams and fantasies are intense. Your thoughts are creative, […]


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 […]
