'After I told Mama what I meant, she went back downstairs, shaking her head and probably wondering why I had gotten so excited.'

My mother would have gone further than that.

Oh dear! Luckily my mom doesn't mind my Romanov obsession!

YKYOWTR when you are really bored one day and decide to create a Xbox 360 profile for Nicholas and get really excited when the avatar ends up actually looking like him.

When you suddenly burst out of the bathroom shreiking "I have Olga waves on both sides of my head!!"

You might be amused to know that I saw The King's Speech today and when I saw Helena Bonham Carter's hairstyle I thought, "She has Olga waves!"

Hahaha, that is funny.

I have naturally curly hair so if I just pull a brush through it I have the same hairstyle. ;P

i did exactly the same thing. lol.
when someone says something and you get into a heated discussion about it thinking of the romanovs in connection to the topic..although its really nothing to do with them :)
when someone makes a comment online or otherwise about them and you become so agressively defensive that you actually scare yourself :)

When you are talking to an Air Cadet about people with strange beliefs who ignore all scientific evidence, and what you really want to talk about is Anna Anderson.

Where are you going to be in Poland?

btw. it's not that close from Auschwitz to Spala... it's really close to Auschwitz only if you're in Kraków or Katowice, or in south of Poland anyway.
not to mention there are also other Nazi Concentration Camps in Poland besides Auschwitz, in case you want to visit...

hi!
back from poland, it was amazing thanks! i've wanted to go forever so it was a bit of a dream come true! yeh we flew into katowice and spent quite a lot of time in krakow. went to auschwitz, wish i hadn't of now, it was unimaginable. i know obviously you expect it to be, but you can't imagine it until you go. but it was an experience. the guide was very very good, and lovely to listen to because of the wonderful accent that you could literally dissolve in, we also spent time around the zakopane area too. (is that how you spell it?) thought about naotmaa a lot when away. it was a mind blowing experience to finally go to poland after wanting to go forever though. now i can tick that off my list and denmark moves up to no. one place to go. :)

so....
when you go to poland after wanting to go forever and think about naotmaa the whole time!

Yes I do know of Sobibor, Treblinka etc.   I did take an interest in the Holocaust and have visited the Sydney Jewish Museum.   

Tuna Ears glad you had a good time in Poland :)  I can only imagine how heart breaking and moving seeing Auschwitz in person would have been.   

YKYOWTR when you see girls dressed in Edwardian style on TV such as "Turn back the time" and the hemline is to the ankles and you think "No costume people you have got it wrong,  hemline is ment to be above the knees or below after a certain age.   When the girl becomes of age the hemline is down to ankles.  OTMA photos are a good example."
