That is so cute! The artist is very talented.

Thanks for all the info, Fyodor Petrovich! Maybe I should find out more about Maximilian!

Yeah, it is pretty cool that there's a giant Norwegian party on my birthday! And it's interesting what it celebrates.

It was about 90 degrees F today, with some clouds but mostly scorching sun. Nice breezes though.
Of course, now it's dark and is supposed to storn tonight.

You know you're obsessed with the Romanovs when

... your mother's birthday is July 30th and you become EXCEEDINGLY jealous that she shares your favorite historical person's birthday and then can't explain to her why you're jealous that this is her birthday.

However you are slightly mollified when you realize your birthday is November 15th, which is still a Romanov connection. (But are still jealous of your mom anyway)

I know! I'm forever asking my family members' birthdays to see if they share it with a Romanov. My birthday was May 16th, which is unfortunately not shared with anybody royal (that I know of).
Who's birthdays are on July 30th and November 15th? Is the Nov. one Olga N's?

It looks rare to me! Maria and Nastia look rather uncomfortable, packed into that rock wedge :D

Thanks for posting that, Dustofhistory :)

Ohh Tasia, I love risotto! My nonna makes it with saffron and sun-dried tomatoes.

Tonight, though, I had grilled salmon, corn on the cob, sweet potatoes, and bread with my family.

I've never seen it before, but am no real judge of its rareness.

My gosh! I laughed so hard while reading these that my brother came in to ask me if I was okay!
I haven't done too many crazy things, but some of the most fun were

throwing snowballs and pebbles at a snowplow going through our neighborhood, as a small child on a snow day (this was with other neighbor kids). Cute, huh?
sitting/laying/sprawling on the sidewalk of a strip mall, laughing and making people go around us (me, my sister, and my friend)
running away from annoyed shoppers on the sidewalk of that same strip mall
climbing onto the roof of the snack building of our school football field with five friends and my sister
dancing around Home Depot, practicing pirouettes and piques and grand jetes in the aisles as the other shoppers looked on (and tried to stay out of my and my sister's way)

...and I guess I was hardly aware the craziness then, but when I was four I wanted SO DESPERATELY to avoid getting a flu shot at the doctor's office that I fended off the lady with a chair, holding it in front of me and screaming.

...nothing else, I'm afraid. We'll see what else is added to the list in the future. The thing is, I'd never do anything like this by myself! It always has to be with other (crazier) people.

It started out very sunny this morning, and warm. Then it got cloudy, rained a little, got cooler, and now it's bright and sunny and above 80 degrees F again. Kentucky weather  ::)

I wonder if there's an anti-rain dance. If there is, I'll gladly do one for you!! :D
