paulh, making lemonade from the lemons that life has given me

I was wondering if anyone could help me
establish whether the Victorian period
had anything to do with Queen Victoria?
I mean, the period might have been named
for some other Victoria of the time, like,
for instance, Victoria Woodhull, the well-known
American suffragette and general pain-in-the-tail.
Can anyone answer this? Are there are Victorianists
out there, with their Victorianistic expertise
on the topic of Victorianisticism? smiley - grovel

Who was Queen Victoria?
And what kind of wood was Victoria
Woodhull made of? smiley - huh

Victoria Woodhull might have been
a woodchuck. Or she might not have been
a woodchuck. Then again, she might have
been a woodchuck after all. It could have
gone either way.....

As for Queen Victoria, well, she died
about a hundred years ago. She never
flew in an airplane. She never sent
email. It's understandable that you never
heard of her, FPR. smiley - smiley

Queen Victoria is dead? smiley - yikes
How come nobody told me? smiley - wahsmiley - wahsmiley - wah

Poor, poor Queen Victoria.
How can I get on with my life knowing this?

Wait, what was Victoria's secret?
Did she tell anyone what it was before she went
to her grave? smiley - skull

Oh, this is serious, FPR.
We have all these questions about
Queen Victoria, and there is nobody
to answer them for us. Our lives will
be ruined until we can find out.

There is one thing which makes this conversation *extremely* odd... which is probably why it fits here. smiley - laugh

Okay, Lady Scott, what is the one thing which makes
this conversation *extremely* odd... which is probably
why it fits here? smiley - huh

Is it the fact that a man, a smiley - bunny, and a smiley - dragon
are doing most of the talking? smiley - winkeye

Lady Scott

Bingo. That's it. smiley - erm No, not actually bingo, smiley - silly.

The man, the smiley - bunny and the smiley - dragon - and the fact that the smiley - bunny and the smiley - dragon are alter-egos of the man, who must be *very* bored to be essentially talking to himself.

And of course there I go talking about you as if you're someone else we're talking about, which makes it even smiley - weirder! smiley - laugh

I don't mind, Lady Scott. smiley - smiley

You go ahead and have fun.
That's why I started this thread.
Stick around, and you'll hear the smiley - bunny
say:

"We should express our regrets at Queen
Victoria's passing. Is her son around?"

You silly smiley - bunny! smiley - winkeye

King Edward died in 1912.
And Edward's son George died in the late 1930s.
And George's son George became king, until
he died in 1952, when his daughter Elizabeth
became Queen. smiley - smiley

If you want redundancy, look at the names
of some of these Kings and Queens. smiley - tongueout

I did look at them. It was difficult to resist reading them, but I somehow managed to *just* look at them.

Poor, poor Victoria.
First she lost her beloved husband.
Then Crimea.
Then she was snatched away in her prime
by the Grim Reaper.
And then her children and grandchildren
and great-grandchildren all dead. smiley - cry

What a tragic chain of events. smiley - sadface

Ans for what, I ask you, for what? smiley - huh

Nancy the dragon

Oh, brother! smiley - erm

Can you imagine what Queen Victoria would be like
if she were still alive at 185? They'd have to
prop her up so she could send emails to everyone
telling them that she is not amused.

Well, maybe *that* thought is a little funny. smiley - laugh

What's this about bored alter-egos engaging one another in pleasant conversation? I don't know any one who would be bored enough to do that!

neither do i.

what's all this about redundancy? am i being made redundant?
maybe i would be redundant if there were a queen broelan
and a queen broelan II and a queen broelan III and then a princess broelan. and they were all named after the patriarch of the line, king broelan V!

but *i'm* a princess broelan.

oh dear, did i just make myself redundant?

I don't know if you've made yourself redundant or not, but you sure are repetitive!

But to drag this thread back on topic, maybe the Victorian age was named after me smiley - bigeyes ... Little Victoria Mischief smiley - devil
