LOL Tasia,  you made me think of when I went to a concert and a guy was dressed as a Victorian dude, with waist coat, gold watch chain and a top hat, he also wore a cravat.  He looked awesome.

You know you're obsessed when you forgot that they aren't really common knowledge, and most people wouldn't know who they were if you casually dropped them in to conversation. At work today I saw a girl with her mother that looked a LOT like Tatiana, and I really had to fight the urge to go "You look just like Tatiana!" because I realized that she would have no idea who I was talking about, and it would take far too long to explain.

I once spent nearly an entire meal at a restaurant trying to take a picture of a little girl at another table, who looked like an infant Olga, with my phone. Apparently I'm shameless when it comes to the Romanovs.

When one runs into a stranger in public that reminds them of one of the family , it's hard not to stare...and freak them out! You do have to sneak the looks! lol!

YKYOWTR when it makes your day when Nicholas is mentioned on Jeopardy, but you get annoyed when he is called the last 'king' of Russia. Oh, and you smile at the embellishment that Alex T. puts on 'Feodorovna' while saying the question.
I'm back on my bull****.

They had something similar to this on Jeopardy a few years back. I know the topic was Russian History, but I don't remember the question. All I know is that it had something to do with Alexander III and Nicholas.

YKYOWTR when you drag your boyfriend to a book store downtown (45 minutes from where you live), because you heard that they had a special on biographies and you wanted to find any Romanov book that you didn't already have. Oh and you convince your sister to let you make her a Romanov Screen Saver, just so you have an excuse to look for pictures.

YKYOWTR when while eating your supper of wild mushroom stroganoff, the lyrics to the the cartoon movie Anastasia's 'Learn to Do It' runs continuously through your head. "I never cared for stroganoff; She said that like a Romanov!" :)

You know your obsessed when you name one of your cats kittens Alexei, and you try to convince your brother to give the others Romanov names as well...or at least Russian names. (It didn't work, Alexei's the only one I got out of it, and that's because my brother wasn't around at the time that I named him. The others are Orange Thunder  :-X (His idea, not mine) and Little Foot (the only thing we could agree on))

Hmmmm, wild mushroom stroganoff....I don't know I might like it. I like stroganoff, but not so big on the mushrooms, I'll have to give it a try sometime.
