It might indeed  be the dying young part, but imo it's also that people here think about them and all that entails.( feelings ) So they are "current"  in that sense. We mentally bring them along to the present.

You know you're obsessed with the Romanovs when you read a review of a book about Coco Chanel and wonder why it doesn't mention her affair with Dimitri Pavlovich.

Is that "being obsessed with the Romanovs" or simply "knowing more about Coco Chanel than the average bear"? ; )

Why *wouldn't* the book mention that affair? Good question!

You're obsessed with the Romanovs when the only interesting thing about Coco Chanel is her affair with Dimitri!

Yeah, that is so true.  I'd heard of her, but wasn't interested until now.

Ha, very true! I care nothing at all for fashion, so I wouldn't even be talking about her if not for that!

 I do have to give Coco a nod for creating  an empire from nothing .....while dallying with a fellow from an  Empire that sadly, went to nothing . Ships crossing in the night as it were

That is indeed a sad irony, Anne.

YKYOWTRW- Going into surgery and thinking if the IF survived even after their faces were bashed and having broken bones in the face.  This is what it feels like.

I'm off to be having lower jaw surgery on Thursday.  Where my lower jaw is going to be moved forward so I have a bite :)  It envolves having my lower jaw broken and postioned so the break is held in place with a titanium while the bones heal.  I'm looking forward to it when I heal but not looking forward to the procedure.
Beautiful faithful Nargony.
Thanks Emily!

Good Lord! I hope they are able to put you under during the procedure, yes?

My thoughts go out to you on your rather unusual and painful sounding surgery...best of luck!

Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right...
