The Big Update – for the Umpteenth Time…

Posted by Les Becker on October 23, 2019 in Real Life |

I’m in the middle of a forced reboot – the blog has become stagnant. As of the date on this post, I have failed to update here in well over a year. Today, I begin to

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 […]

The Chamber Pot

Posted by Les Becker on September 29, 2008 in It Helps If the Whole Family Is Crazy, Oh Mother...! |

The 1998 Version of My Aunt Blanche… No, really, let’s compare, shall we? If only to piss off my daughter – who tells me she’ll kill me if I post this, but then laughs out loud when she looks at this photo of herself, so I think I’m all good… Tell me that’s not eerie… […]

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 […]

The What’th of September…

Posted by Les Becker on September 22, 2008 in Photography, Real Life, Wasted Time... |

Ruby needed to know the date the other day, and that’s how she asked it: “This is the what’th of September…?” It struck me as a good title for a blog post because it’s felt like the “what’th of September” for pretty much the entire month. The photo is fairly symbolic for my September, as […]

When Does the Fat Lady Sing?!

Posted by Les Becker on August 29, 2008 in Little Bits of Stupid, Real Life |

clipped from realestate.sympatico.msn.ca DO draw up a floor plan for the new space before determining any furniture choices. Your favourite sofa may look like it fits in your new home — make sure it does! As well as assessing your furniture for room arrangements, measure large, wide pieces like sofas to see if they’ll fit […]

Goodbye, Captain Underpants…

"The Tattered and Worn"

Tattered and worn is how Ky and I both feel about now. Our move of residence is imminent. As in, Today. I hate moving. I wanted to space it all out over a period of a couple of weeks, and the plan was working for awhile, even. The J.O.B., though, has me worn out. When […]

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 […]

Hello World!

Posted by Les Becker on April 15, 2008 in J.O.B., Real Life, School, Wasted Time... |

Okay, it’s just been so damned long since I’ve posted that it feels like a brand new blog. And what you see above is pretty much what everything that I’ve been up to to keep me from blogging boils down to (Holy ol’ shit, but that’s a lot of “to”s!). In other words: a whole […]

Where Did the Time Go?

Posted by Les Becker on March 16, 2008 in Real Life |

Where Did the Time Go?Taken March 1, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 Whew! That was a hiatus I would rather not have taken. The Real World sucks compared to this one, it really does. That said, it could be added that my time “away” basically consisted of two types of events: losses and gains. These […]
