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, […]

What to Post When You Can’t Keep a Train of Thought on Its Rails…

Posted by Les Becker on November 23, 2008 in Little Bits of Stupid, Photography |

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 […]

The Day the Earth Stood Still…

Posted by Les Becker on September 25, 2008 in Other People's Stories..., Real Life |

A couple of months back, I was invited to dinner by a friend: a 6’4 cook I worked with at The House of Fracas, my temporary placement, the first J.O.B. (and so far, only) in my brand new field, after I was out of school. This invitation was a long time coming. He kept inviting […]

Pink Fantasy…

Posted by Les Becker on April 29, 2008 in Real Life, Zenishness... |

Pink FantasyTaken February 22, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 I’m right impressed with myself over this picture. I seriously doubt I’ll get another shot even half this good for the rest of the year. I kind of hope I don’t – I’m really proud of this one. I want to blow it up to about […]

It Used to Give Me Peace of Mind…

Posted by Les Becker on February 18, 2008 in Kyla Becker, Real Life |

Now, the bill is causing an ulcer.Taken February 17, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 As a former “Smother Mother”, placing a cell phone in my daughter’s hands relieved some of the “she will surely be kidnapped/assaulted/raped/arrested or otherwise end up in a body-bag if I let her out of my sight” symptoms. Surprisingly quickly, actually. […]

Work Boots ‘n Dancin’ Shoes

Posted by Les Becker on January 16, 2008 in The Landlady |

Elle, from Maxwell the Tattooed Boy and Other Astounding Joys, wrote about her grandmother in a post yesterday. Her Grandma was a Flapper in the Roaring Twenties, a time that fascinates me (I’m in – okay, mostly out of, lately – the midst of a novelish-type project about those days).Suzi wondered in Elle’s comments what […]
