Having Fun! / Re: I got a new cat: Tatiana!

Oh, that's adorable s_p! Are you guys going to name them?

I know the feeling Tim, I have three cats myself, and all sorts of handfuls. Sissy likes to paw at cups full of any liquid, and when she does, she usually knocks them off the counter/table/stand! Then she just walks away like nothing happened. Donut (Sissy's son, and yes, his name really is Donut!) likes to dig up the potatoes and  the mounds in our garden whenever he can, and it's quite a site to see him run back and forth as he's being chased off! And then there's Buddy, the sweetheart. This cat will do anything for some love. Or food. Once he was locked outside all night, and he took refuge in the chicken house (we also have chickens :3) and sat in the boxes where the chickens lay eggs! He actually slept there too.... xD
Sissy likes to think she's a chicken too. Once, about 6 baby chicks were following her around, and she just led them around the yard! She also likes to walk in group with them; it's adorable xD
In all, we have too many animals to name. 3 cats, at least 40 chickens, numerous birds, including magpies and chickenhawks and eagles, there are squirrels in our attic, about 3 moose that like to visit us, summer or winter, at least one bear, and ducks that like to fly in and use the stream in our backyard and eat the chicken feed.

Annie, this is hilarious! Don't forget the tail! :D

Gloria: I agree on the last part, but I'd at least like to give OTMAA a taste of life, after all, they were so similar to little children.
Tim: If you mean Yurovsky's face, I would pay to see that!

I can just imagine their faces right now, reading all of these daydreams! :)

YKYOWTR when you start to make your own Julian calendar, complete with days of the week and holidays, just so you can crosscheck the dates on diaries and letters. Also, I can't add 13 days without thinking my math is wrong, so the calendar is a bit of a bonus!

That's such a sweet dream! I remember talking to myself in the dream, but I don't remember exactly what it was, or what it sounded like. Don't you just hate that?

I love the Grandmamma dream, that's so sweet! What colour was the court dress, if you don't mind me asking?

If I did go back in time, to make sure they would survive, I would go and slap Yurovsky (courtesy of all Romanov lovers!), and at least try to get him to wimp out on the murder, along with his men. That way the Whites would win over Ekaterinburg, bringing them to a safe place. Or I might stop the murder via stopping the telegram. (It was a telegram right?)

I think, if they escaped, they would go to Crimea first, and try to rescue some old stuff, but I think Nicky or Alix or even Olga would realise that it's too dangerous to stay in Russia, so I think they would move to France, (I think Alix wouldn't have liked to expose the girls to Paris though) or the US or Darmstadt. Nicky and Alix would be so much more relaxed, and the girls and Alexei would have a lot more friends! A simple English house, out in the countryside, where Nicky and Alix can grow old, and the children can visit, and the grandchildren will get scratchy woolen sweaters. This is making me tear up a little :)

Often time, when I search Google Books I find Romanov books in different languages, scanned in that language. Have you tried there?

I know how you feel, when someone wakes you up from a great dream like that! I had one about Tatiana a long time ago, and I was so mad when my mother woke me!

But I had another recently.

I was Olga, (I just somehow know that, I never saw my face or anything) and for some reason, I was trapped in a Catholic school. Yes, a Catholic school. I don't know how I got there, but I was there. It looked so much like the upper floor of my school, just a big long hall with classrooms and lockers on one side, but all the students were in class, and for some reason I was trying to escape. I don't really know why I was, but I do remember there was a priest, Father (something that starts with a D), and he was trying stop me from escaping. For some reason there were people at every corner trying to stop me too (they were the minions of Father D), and after a very long while, I finally got out, but there were archers trying to stop me. I was stung by an arrow in my right arm, but I kept running. When I made it outside, what I saw was my friend's big gray house, which startled me because the school seemed so much bigger. I ran down the driveway and into the street in front of it. Right about then my dream ended.

I was rather glad to wake up from this one! It wasn't very pleasant, and I could feel the pain of being hit with those arrows. This dream reminds me of the scenario of the cellar, and how everyone was shooting, and I couldn't escape! I think the Catholic v. Orthodox thought could stand for Reds v. Whites, and the school a prison. My friends and I jokingly refer to school as prison a lot, but this time it was much more real! Oh, I really hope I get a pleasant dream soon! I'm just glad the dream had a better ending than the reality though.

Anyone else have dreams?

It's okay, sometimes in school I like to get on the forum, via phone. I then save pictures and email them to myself for later! Oh, the Romanovs rule my life, but I don't mind!

Maria, I always daydream about going to them, but you've gotten me daydreaming about them coming to us! I've always liked the idea of going to them, so I can see how they lived and what daily life was like.

Antiques Roasdhow.... ummm..... ummm.... ummm.... You are so right! I was talking more like I drop in about say 1916, but I agree with your post whole heartedly! I seriously can't think of anymore shows. This will bother me for a while now xD

Let get a list going, shall we?

Antiques Roadshow

That's all I can think of :)

Indeed blessOTMA, indeed!

AP, I hardly think that would have a place in it. The characters are established, and of course, this is just my daydream. (It's rather ironic isn't it? Day dreaming at night I mean.) I don't really see where it would fit in.
This attitude is making me think you're a fan of the "saga". Is there any truth to that?

YKYOWTR when on of the things you think about at night, when nothing is stirring, if what you would do if you could just go and meet them.

Like for example, I ponder whether I would call them Your Majesties, and in what order would I greet them, etc. I have it pretty worked out xD (First, I would hug whichever of NAOTMAA I see first, put gingerly if it was Alexei or Alix, and then introduce myself as someone from the future. Then I would tell M&A to not burn any diaries, and Alix too... And I would figure out just which bedroom was which. :D)

Was that Anna Vyrubova's book you were talking about, for the single story/source? Also, I saw this post, they updated it.

Indeed! My guess is a grey, but lord only knows!
But I digress.
Anyone else have some pictures?
