Gorgeous dresses, 'rosieposie'. I'd love a gown like those.

-The only reason you know anything at all about WWI is because of your study of the Romanovs.
-When you're in your house in the summer, and it's hot because your parents refuse to turn on the AC, you pretend you're in the Ipatiev House.
-When you read their letters, in your head they each have their own distinctive voice.
-You have NAOTMAA's birthdays on the calender, but not the birthdays of your family.
-You read through this entire thread, and 95% of the things on it applied to you.

I so do that!

Even better... you DO have your family's birthdays in your daily planner/cellphone calendar but NAOTMAA's are apparently more important! That's me!

Well maybe not 95% but something like that, yeah!  ;D

Quite the same here!
-When you're in your house in the summer, and it's hot because your parents refuse to turn on the AC, you pretend you're in the Ipatiev House.
I should do that sometime! Excellent idea!

YKYOWTRW you're watching Real Housewives of New Jersey (yes, I know, we all have our failings  :-[) and you're thinking "You know what would really be good? Real Grand Duchesses of St. Petersburg! Minnie, Miechen and Alix! Wow!"

Heck, yeah, Miechen! There's only one person Alix and Minnie can't stand more than each other, and that's Miechen!

Similar... YKYOWTR when it's spring though feels like summer and your grandparents always say (because it's still spring) that it's too early to put all the AC's in and you think "now i know how they felt at the Ipatiev House!" especially today cause it is HOT!

we lost electricity during  a heat wave last year and let me say it was a revelation .... It changes how one thinks of Ipatiev House. The physical and  psychological effects of such heat...without a a window...11 people and three dogs closed up in five rooms? It had to be torture. Particularly for Allx as she loved the cold! Her daughter's would complain about the chilly rooms she favored ( like Queen Victoria! )

YKYOWTR when you're checking the "best by" date on a container of yogurt and it is June 14th, and you say "June fourteeth, the release date of The Lost Crown and Maria's Julian calendar birthday!"

I have heard of secondary smoke.....but it seems  there is such a thing as secondary Romanov  obsession.  Yesterday my husband said ," At the train station I saw a man who looked like the cook at Ipatiev House " lol!

I hope it's not here but:


- You dream of /have named your children after them
Woken in the middle of the night told to get dressed what a sight theres an outbreak in the street they are told walking down the steps brave and bold in the cellar 20 minutes it took to kill a family in a little nook that night their dreams were shattered with their clothes bloody and tattered

.....When your in school and you look through the index of any and all history books you recieve, no matter how small they are, automatically to look for anything in them about anything remotly Romanov or about Imperial Russia.

YKYOWTRW you're all dressed up in a suit, heels and pantyhose in 85-degree weather for a job interview and you think "Gee, I've probably got about as many clothes as Nicky wore on the Standart but at least I'm not wearing a corset and petticoats like Alix!
