Pssh no prob ;D RHB told me, and I've been reading as much as I can! Truly awesome! Alas, I had to stop, because I have to register for high school, get clothes and supplies, and study! I have AP World History *at this point a loud YES! Is heard at my house, startling the parents, cats, chickens, and neighbors.* which is a major improvement from US History (quite a boring subject, but during lunch one day, me and my 3 best friends started talking about this restaurant in Texas that will fry ANYTHING provided it's not living, and not human. Our teacher told us to stop talking about it and we argued for a while. Best argument ever.) and I REALLY want to correct the teacher if they get something wrong about Russia. I'm seriously going to go around to every history teacher and ask if they are know what the names of the four daughters of the last tsar are. How'd you like the autobiography titles? Personally, Tatiana and Olga's  were a little too close, but now that I think about it, they are the Big Pair.... Hmmm....
Why I enjoy watching The Andy Griffith Show at 2am, I'll never know.
Why yes, I do enjoy comical stylings of Anastasia :]

Autobiography titles? I don't know of any autobiographies. Fill me in puh-leeze!

Let me say, if the IF were here today I would be one happy camper! :D
My picks(or theirs ;D)
Books:
Olga: all the classics, like the bible, to pushkin, to Tolstoy, to Gone with the Wind to to Kill a Mocking Bird etc.
Tatiana: all the celeb magazines (she would be in them, for sure! No rag mags, though, that's more Anastasia :D)
Maria: action, adventure, and romance. Like the Crown and the Crucible. Wonderful story (thanks OlgaBernice!)
Anastasia: tabloids (rag mags) and a lot of online reading! (blogs, pranks, blond jokes! I bet she *might* like Blondie though!)
Alexei: hmm... Toughie.... Definitely the Harry Potter series, and LOTR...

TV:
Olga: BBC, CNN, PBS, National Geographic, Discovery Channel! But I can see her watching the old movies channel too!
Tatiana: she'd watch soaps with Maria! Bold and the Beautiful for her, but she might like older ones too, although not Dark Shadows. (dredful acting, dreadful lines. It is pretty hilarious though! :D )
Maria: soaps with Tatiana! You know B&B all my children, etc... And maybe FRIENDS with Anastasia and Alexei!
Anastasia: George Lopez, making fun of Dark Shadows, looking up footage online of people getting smacked in the face with pie,various other YouTube searches ;D
Alexei: pretty much the same as Anastasia, but maybe a couple military programs with his father and/or Olga!

YouTube searches (I had to put this!)
Olga: something like past romanov Tsars and their accomplishments... I can't really see Olga as a YouTube user... Or maybe she is a user! :O
Tatiana: behind the scenes footage of Days of Our Lives etc.
Maria: something like Tatiana's ;D
Anastasia: this one you can leave to your imaginations, there is way too much to put here!
Alexei: same goes as above! ;)

Jobs:
Olga: reporter for France 24
Tatiana: fashion designer!
Maria: housewife, who operates a store below her house called Maria's Home Goods! (there's a diner call Maria's Diner next to it!)
Anastasia: comedy writer/stand up comic!
Alexei: captain of a ship!

Their autobiographies would be called;
Olga: What my Colleagues Don't Know; The Life of a Proud Reporter Olga R.
Tatiana: Seams and Stitches; The Thread of My Life by Tatiana R.
Maria: Pricing Inventory with a Prized Infant; How I Managed to Not Mix Them Up by Maria R.
Anastasia: Becoming a Comic; Watching the Funniest of the Funniest at 4am by Anastasia R.
Alexei: Living with Hemophilia; The Struggles of a Child by Alexei R. (soon to be followed by Living with Hemophilia; The Struggles of an Adult!)

Okay last one: ;D
Their Electronics!
Olga: cellphone, pager, kindle of course, and an iPad with all the same books!
Tatiana: cellphone, personalized laptop, and a personal organizer (I forgot what they're called)
Maria: cellphone and an ipod is all she needs!
Anastasia: cellphone, Wii, Nintendo 64, best of the best laptop, desktop, and every operating system known to mankind (Olga installed them,  she knows that kind of thing)
Alexei: he and Anastasia share theirs, but he has his own laptop and cell phone!

Sorry, just had to do one more!

Their Nintendo game (if they could only have one)
Olga: what's it called, like brain fit or something?
Tatiana: Wii fit, but she doesn't need it ;D
Maria:classic Mario, because she would love the whole saving princess peach thing!
Anastasia: super Mario galaxy, number two :D
Alexei: good ol' Donkey Kong!

Okay, that's my 30 cents :D

By autobiographies I meant what I think they would be called ;) not that they actually wrote any while they were alive, just for fun.

That's the good thing about this board, Natalie, we can discuss OTMA and such, and your fellow posters know what you're talking about.

Exactly! Shoot, I just realized they probably won't know who OTMA is... I'm going to ask my history teacher if I can teach about NAOTMAA one day... ;D

Lucky kids (or should I say pupils, students, etc. under your care)! At least they won't have to worry about correcting you on Russian History! ;)

Psh I'm drawing up my lesson plan now ;D

Not so lucky, more like bored of me rambling on! They might have to correct me on post 1918 history.... Except for Anne Frank and Holocaust subjects, hate what happened, but like to learn about it.

Yeah-same with me (well, I'm not exactly drawing my lesson plans yet). I could maybe (stress the maybe) teach a class on Anne Frank, Titanic (the real ship, mind you), and, of course, definitely the Romanovs. I don't know much about Lenin and communism and everything after 1918 (like you! =D)

Well, I'm not actually drawing one up now, I was just kidding ;D
YKYOWTR when you write down all information you have on OTMAA in case of a computer crash. Yes, I've heard the horror stories!

GD Ayla, that's pretty well thought out there, and enjoyable to read!

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

It's funny because reading the answers, there is one thing that is not taken into account: the Grand Duchesses and Alexei would probably have a strong connection with Russia and Russian culture.

Things would be better for Alexei.  There are  medications that can control hemophilia.
