I got another one:
Anastasia: This is Anastasia. I can't come to the phone right now because I am hiding from the doctor.
The three grandduchesses in the background chanting like cheerleaders: O T M A !
please a message after the beep!
(a Cheech and Chong movie is going in the background and Nicholas is laughing)

"Hi you have reached the Imperial phone of the Grand Duchesses,  leave a message if you are family or friends.  If your a stupid, eye glazed, OTMA obsessive teen who ogles our photos, wants to know our habits and thinks we are so "beautiful", "Pretty" etc.  Then bugger off, because we think you guys need to get a life...geez, I bet they want to know when we pee and poop too..BEEP!"

And I thought mine was odd! I can't quite tell who the butt of the comment is exactly. (Or put another way - was that self depreciation or rage at work?) Still, never mind. I'm 'on vigil' for the 16th and 17th and now knackered.

Here's a few points though (apologies if already here - I can't find it if it is.)

1. Wouldn't any 'communal' answering machine carry only 'The Governess's' voice?
2. If an answering machine existed in 1914, how much would it cost because don't they only get 2 roubles a week? Would it be more than a pair of gloves or less? :) Now there's a discussion!
3. What language would they use?

Even though they had a telephone everyone avoided it like the plague. Their answering machine would have been a servant who cost 50 roubles a year

More efficient (given the technology). If mechanical it would have been 22 foot long, 18 foot wide and 8 foot high and run with valves. Hmm simpler to have a biological one. So here's a follow up (sorry if this turns into a sci+tech discussion). How would the sound be recorded? On wax cylinder? You'd have to hire someone just to reset it after each call anyway!

3. I think that Russian for family/friends and the other languages for polytics ^^.

"Hi, this is Maria Nicolaevna, and I can't come to the phone right now. But if you're a really cute soldier, leave a message after the BEEP; but I warn you: I won't kiss you, ok?" BEEP

* Hi, this is Anastasia Nicholaevna. If you're hearing this probably Olga had killed me because I said she was stupid. Tell my Mama and Papa I love them and tell Olya she's REALLY STUPID!!! But not as much as Maria. I'm dead, so I can say this: MARIA, YOU ARE STUPID!!!* BEEP!
