17.- You go to Paris and in three days you visit Versailles, Conciergerie and Carnavalet Museum.
18.- You are in Les Invalides and, instead of looking for books of Napoleon, everything you buy has to do with MA.
19.- Your messenger picture is one of MA.
20.- Your friends call you 'freaky' because you know a lot about her.
21.- You start painting oil and your first picture is based on a photo you took in Versailles.
22.- They tell you about a Las Meninas (by Velazquez) or Sissi and all you do is looking for their (relative) relationship to MA.

That is so true! I am naming my pug Antonia. :D...well, when I get it.
I'm naming my one of my daughters Marie and my son Charles Louis and my other daughter Sophie. :wink: if you know anything about MA, then you should get Sophie.

32) You decide to live for a month a la Ancien Regim. You only wear historical clothing, and when you try to go into a store, they don't let you come in because they think you'll hide something in the voluminous folds of your polonaise!

33. You wish you could go back in time when she was in prison and confort her and her kids.

34. You turn yourself into a deffiant person till the end with all dignity, just like her.

35. You think of yourself as a person noble enough not to acknowledge nonsense insults and caring enough to forgive those who insulted you and beg those you love never to avenge you.

36. You think of redoing all the research and rewrite Marie Antoinette's biography within the French Revolution context.

Oh yes... and you feel obsessed with all these missed runaways... You view Varennes catastrophe again and again in your head, and you want so hard that, eventually, this time, it will succeed...
