  1. Catherine Wheel

    The Catherine Wheel was a method of torture and punishment in the Middle Ages.

    It was named so becasue according to ledgend St. Catherine of Alexandria was executed upon the device which is also known as a Breaking Wheel.

    Catherine Wheel

    Battered and broken
    you string me up
    lashed upon the spokes
    for all the world to see
    (for what I ask)
    so I may be made to dance
    in mockery to your tune?

  2. Revolt Against Closets

    I have a long time aversion to the closet and that whole system of hanging up clothes, I really do not know who first came up with the idea, but I do not find it in the least bit an improvement. For me it just makes things all the more time consuming and inconvenient than they need to be.

    please don't walk away
    how you act as if this was all just a play
    but you know you will never be happy doing what others say
    is you

    That will be my eternal excuse for not frequenting here anymore. Please don't hate me. Anywho, so i might as well tell you WHAT has been stealing me away from this delightful sight.
    1)I must be honest. Facebook.
    2) But before you condemn me as a traitor let me also inform you of other things i've. Last night i finish sewing a dress for my friend for the formal she's attending. Ha, but i'm not that unselfish. I'm entering a contest. Grand prize is $50,000. nice, eh?
