Sure--we did the first one on here, so if you feel ambitious, go for it!

30. My opinion is that the monachy died in 1917,  there is no need for a future  monachy.  Especially for Maria V.   There is descendants of Xeina and Olga A who have more claim of the throne then  Maria V.

I think I shall stick with Kassafrass this time. My mind is forever changing and it was hard to keep happy with just one...

Isn't "Kassafrass" part of the long word from Mary Poppins, you know, the one that song is about (you don't expect me to spell it, I hope).

Whenever I see this picture, the movie, The Exorcist, comes to my mind for some reason.  Nastya looks like she's possessed!

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious? Haha! Actually, my nickname is Kassy so I simply made it a play on word with sassafras :-)

Why my boyfriend Andryusha first saw it, he thought the same and swore that it was creepy. It is at first glance but I find it to be funny as well.

Day Four - Favorite Aunt Or Uncle Of OTMAA

She's a grand aunt but you know, I actually don't know enough about Nicholas or Alexandra's siblings to make a decision on them.
