The Polls Are In!

If you had to pick, which would you wear?

44% chose 12 inch wide Bear Claw shoes that made you waddle...


55% chose flesh painted pointy tip shoes which obviously resemble a certain part of male anatomy...

I love this time period. When visiting London I could not wait to see Hampton Court and the Tower of London. If there was such a thing as reincarnation I know I lived during that time period!

I don't condone the fact that Anne went after the husband of someone else, but I do believe she was the victim of a world ruled by men. I think she was a bit "full of herself." She certainly played with fire and got burned. Or should I say she was so determined to win the game that she completely "lost her head."

The real victim in this was probably Queen Catherine who loved Henry, married him for life, and tried desperately to give him a son.

I agree with you, and I do feel very bad for Catherine. I think Anne had a bit too much self confidence, especially since she was able to break up a royal marriage which was unheard of.
