I first wrote an essay about my migraines entitled, “Staring Longingly at a Bread Knife” a few years ago. This began a series of other essays shortly after. Often times, I do stare longingly at my bread knife, deciding whether or not to saw off the top portion of my head with it. As much as I still want to, the bread knife represents my sanity of choosing not to, hence my blog title.
Why did you lie to us about your name?
I enjoyed talking smack about the people in my life and wanted to stay anonymous. Then, my life flew out of control with all my addictions (FaceBook included) and I realized that there was nothing better than the truth.
Why bother returning?
I really missed expressing myself literally and visually. So, consider this more a photography blog, with my journey of sobriety, peppered with stories of my family life that keep me sane.
What kind of a camera do you use?
I use a Canon 50D, but when I get lazy, it’s often the camera on my iPhone or a Canon SD700. Most photos do get altered through the Lo-Mob application on my iPhone, but most aren’t.
Will there still be pictures of Bowie? I really enjoyed those.
I hope so. Bowie is getting less and less patient with me, in addition to getting a bit hefty. Only anorexic dogs, since the camera does add 10 pounds or 70 in dog pounds.
I miss guilty noodles.
So do I, but as I mentioned before, I was tired of living a lie. Besides, this blog will be WAY better. I swear.
If you do decide to saw your head off with a bread knife, will you post a video?
Um, no. I’m hoping that will never happen. And if you have to ask, you probably shouldn’t be reading my blog, you dirty little shit.
