I always liked Robespierre better, Napoloen is a wuss
Well, he got lots of stuff done anyway. :) And he was short, so he's cool with me. hehe
You dig shortness? Then I guess I am not to your liking.
I can't help laughing at the getting "lots of stuff done anyway" phrase. Especially as it could be interpreted both positive and especially negative.
How are you today?
hehe. ;) I like to keep things open.
And I'm short, so I give kudos to the short people of the world.
And I am exhausted. My son's taking a nap,and I will be doing the same very soon. You?
I know you like to keep things open, and I dig you for it.
I did wonder, because I noticed you were here quite earlier than usually. So, go take a nap, it will help you manage the remainder of the day. And hug your son from me.
Yay, *hugs random, even though she hates internet hugs*
Aww. ;) I don't hate them. I just don't like to get too many or I get overwhelmed.
well, if you don't like getting lots of internet hugs, then you should stop being so awesome!
just kidding ;)

wow that's nasty.
why you numb?
It IS nasty. My tummy turned the first few times I read it.
I took a muscle relaxant. lol
Hopefully it's not musky. Ewwww. I like cologne like I like my liquor. Not enough to make me wince, please. :)
HAHA! wow thats funny, i hate it when im riding a bus and someone has WAY too much on.
Me too. Ugh. Or when you're on a date and stuck in the car with a bottle of cologne that used to be a man. *shuddddddder*
Remember in those days ya can only bath once a year, it's a relgion takening over plus it wasn't very healthy to take a bath in the open battle field even in the far back too many things can go wrong
(diesase, lot of cannon balls aiming at the biggest thing there which would be your bath tank and plus i would think ya need to command your troops)
as for the empress... ew she could take a bath all she wanted but i am sure everyone around her didn't hence what she did
Wow....... just wow....
First: bathing once a year was for the common folk, more if they lived near clean river. Napoleon probably could have bathed as often as he wanted.
Second: One of the reasons Napoleon was so successful is that he rode his horse around the battlefield and ordered his troops around instead of relying on messengers.
Well, it sounded like he wore all of that cologne to battle off her scent, which makes me think at the time this was mentioned they were both living in the palace. I believe they both could have bathed regularly, and I don't quite understand what you mean about not bathing meaning you're more religious? *confused* I think it's even in the Bible that cleanliness is next to Godliness, so I don't think in those religious days that would have been a concern. I feel sorry for her poor maids. Fainting couches were designed for women with corsets, but they definitely had a use for those stuck with the overfragranced.
EWW!! and think of all of the musk animals that died or whatever giving up their musk!
He he, the derivation of the word 'musk' is sanskrit for 'testicle'
Some soundtrack. I don't remember anymore. Some movie. Maybe My Best Friends Wedding? Love Actually?
