Anonymity.

The subject of anonymity has cropped up on various blogs lately, and it occurred to me this morning that I was feeling slightly uncomfortable that - in my naivity when I first started this blog - I posted a photo of myself. As if it matters what I look like.

Just the fact that someone, sometime, might recognise me was enough to make me think carefully about what I was posting, and that didn't seem "right". So the photo's now been removed, and I feel much better now, thank you for asking. I do email one or two people quite regularly who read this stuff, and if they - or anyone else - want to see the face behind the blog, pictures are available on request, and for what really is a very modest fee! Although if it's for sexual gratificication you'll have to let me know so I can give you something appropriate ;-)

In the meantime, this is my new bike. That's as good as it gets.

I want pictures.

WDKY said...

Face, face and torso, face torso and cock, torso and cock, or just cock?

What do I get?

NewYorkMoments said...

Don't forget to CC me.

WDKY said...

You're getting the full set anyway.

Sher said...

I thought the same...and it lead me to remove a few posts that may come back to haunt me. It was not in the spirit of blogging to remove a post, but then again who needs more headaches or people (I know) having a pissy attitude over what I wrote.

The picture stays though!

WDKY said...

Who needs pissy?

Networkchic said...

So for those of us that saw your pic...do we need to do a mental erase? I'm not so good at that...just ask my conscience.

Nice bike!

Networkchic said...

Oh, and can you cc me on the pics you send UB?

WDKY said...

No!!! I want you thinking about me. But if you want the pictures you'll have to email me, and let me know precisely which "type"...

Yes - thank you - it is a nice bike, although my arse was sore for a while. Nothing to do with poshing, either, I hasten to add.

Nice bike. I'm still caught in my teens riding BMX. My Haro Tr 2.2 get's me looks but I usually just jump over those people.

BUt I agree with the anonymity issue. Someone actually photoshopped a picture I had on another site and sent it to me. That's creepy.

Desiree said...

cool bike :)

WDKY said...

Thanks k o w - the bike is really gorgeous, actually, and justifies me wearing my new Oakley's whilst bombing around town. (I've been playing with that bloody helicopter game from your blog, by the way... crashed and burned, unfortunately.)

Hi Des... (waves and blows kiss)

Mavida Lesbiana said...

nice bike! thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm gonna browse yours a little more....I'll be around.

WDKY said...

That would be nice, cat. I thought yours was excellent.

j said...

i read your archives just in time then!

maybe you need to get one of those extra squashy/comfy gell seats with the special cut out

j said...

that was to be gel

WDKY said...

Gel seats are for girls, j!

(Did you download it? Naughty...)

When I first started blogging it never occured to me that someone in my real world (job to be specific) would ever come across my ramblings. So far I have been lucky, but I try to censor myself with regards to posting anything about work-afterall, I've read "Dooce" -I don't want to experience that first hand.
I've been debating on the picture thing-I think people have a preconceived notion of who or what we are and look like-I'd hate to totally crush someone's mental picture. (cause I'm nice like that)

Nice bike btw...Suck it up and get a gel seat-just don't tell anyone ya got it.

k o w said...

Don't buy a gel seat. If your ass is on the seat for more than 40 seconds you aren't riding properly. Get up and pedal.

WDKY said...

Getting a gel seat would seriously undermine my manhood. My cheeks are just going to have to toughen up.

Dooce? I'll have to Google that now.

Kai Wren said...

Slick bike. I'd kill for a job like that. Just don't get them around here at any price.

Kai Wren said...

And I almost forgot (that pic is distracting) - yet another book reco, this time brcause of the anonymity thing: Roger Zelazny's "My Name is Legion".

WDKY said...

Nice, but not worth killing for! Thanks for the 2nd heads up!

check said...

this answers my earlier question :-)

WDKY said...

Yes, it does.
