el mundo secreto de la castigada

Soy la castigada. I pray for deliverance in the last pew of the emptied church, my palms shaking with remembered concupiscence. The rest of the time, I wait tables at a greasy spoon. I am dueña of the downcast face, the visage los hombres know but cannot quite place. Don't order the pie.

update: Still fixing stuff as fast as I can!. As you may have noticed, Diaryland is being renovated, which is still in progress. Bugs are all being fixed. The new design should work on phones much better than the old one, and pages in the members area are being converted to the new look one by one, so they can be tested. Please email help@diaryland.com with any new problems, but things that are already bugs should be fixed soon!
