Mr Spicy Cauldron and Ms Amethyst Dragon will be pleased to see that I have finally condensed my categories down to an almost manageable level!

They are now…..

Creative /Writing

Anything that’s arty darling….my own writing, things on literature, poetry, fine arts, artists, history of art, and arty things in general!


Title says it all really…anything that’s French or about France, and smells proverbially of garlic!


Hmmmm my favourite…alll that is gothic in clothes, music, art, literature, and sentiment…

Me and my World

What could pass for autobiography, friends, events in my life, events and places in my past life….and hopes for the future!


My little homage to the glories of celluloid…or DVD….


A plethora of one hit wonders and serious eighties CHEEEEEESE! Oh, and some goth music, natch!


Anything and everything around paganism, including the Brigantii Moot and those involved with it!

Werewolves Vampires and Ghoulies

Anything nice and dark that I didn’t manage to fit in anywhere else!


Immortalised in verse….

My dear friend Mr Spicy Cauldron has seen fit to immortalise my antics in verse…….. I don’t know whether to be flattered or despair!

Litfest…or not to litfest????

Posted in creative / writing, gothic, me and my world, morecambe on November 15, 2006 by Khlari

Was intending to go to the Litfest this weekend to see two of my MA tutors, Ian Seed and Mollie Baxter perform, and Woo said that Hendryk was on the same bill……great, we could all go together…..

EXCEPT…when I finally get my hands on the litfest leaflet….this ‘free event’ needs booking, and according to the Dukes box office, is ‘sold out’……..

As last year, I have had a hell of a time getting my hands on a detailed events list…posters all very well but could not get these details from there….grrrrrrrrrrr

Looks good, though there are some I don’t fancy, some I can’t get to, and some now I can’t book for!

Strange advance this year, they are running litfest blogs as well……here’s the link to Mollie Baxter’s……

My Tarot Card

Posted in creative / writing, gothic, me and my world, morecambe, pagan on November 13, 2006 by Khlari

Thanks to chaotickitty for this tarot quiz…….

You are The High Priestess

Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.

The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

Here we go now!!!!!! Corset-shopping time methinks

Posted in creative / writing, gothic, me and my world on November 13, 2006 by Khlari

Well, one episode of my life is now well and truly over. I received a cheque for £1100.00 yesterday, as damages for the events which happened in June. Although this will not cover a fraction of what was destroyed and stolen, it is, I guess better than nothing.

I am also writing this from home…after a long-ish delay, We are finally online, so I can write this in comfort with a cup of coffee in one hand and a fag in the other…….

Handfastings, Samhain, Stress and Tranquility

Posted in creative / writing, gothic, me and my world, morecambe, pagan on November 8, 2006 by Khlari

Well a busy weekend over….this weekend it was chaotickitty and Skit’s handfasting which, apart from the rain, went fantastically…

They both looked gorgeous, Chaotickitty looked spectacular in the lovely dress that Woo made for her, Amethyst Dragon was on hair duty, and I was on make-up, for the full gothic Trinny and Susannah team!

First time I’ve seen SpicyCauldron actually wearing the amazing robe that his sister made for him, which was spectacular , and Willow looked really beaut1ful in her new purply-blue gown stitched by Amethyst Dragon…..

My new purple velvet number, alas stitched by me, at least held together!

Chaotickitty and Skit’s ceremony when it finally stopped raining was held in the garden, and attended by Woo’s cats who seemed intent on either sharing, or eating Chaotickitty’s cloak, it wasn’t sure which! It seemed like Bast was present…..

Norman and Lena led the ceremony, Chaotickitty’s mum tied the handfasting knot, and when the broomstick was found, it was finally hopped over!

In the evening a Samhain ritual was held, for which D and I were newbie quarter callers……….and Willow the high Priestess, and at which Norm announced his semi-retirement. It was a powerful ceremony, which led to some strong emotions flying about, (and some powerful joss-stick allergies…..), but left me the next day with a feeling of calm tranquility which, despite work, still lingers today……
