you're so right! I feel the same way :(
I love that period. though I wouldn't mind going back even a 100 years more. I have a thing for the Napoleonic era AND you wouldn't need to go through the 21st century wars. but you would miss the artistic movements of the '20 and '30... dillemma!
and books in that period are the best books ever written.... the possibility of meeting Flaubert or Oscar Wilde! how cool is that?

anyway... great stamp! if I decide to put stamps in my journal or on my shoutboard, it will be the first one up!

Yeah. 1790 was for me. Even 1890 would be better, tho living through two world wars would destroy my life a little I guess... >>

well, you could always die before the wars :3 you could be born in the early 1800s, then die before the wars of old age or sickness.

Great XD But I think the wars would give me more inspiration to my life. As they have gived to those artists who lived through them. I secretly dream of that.
But today's wars are so much different and too quick >: ohwell.
It's a great stamp you've made. I'm glad to have it in my shoutboard. ^^

Bite you?

Hmm.. "Back then women were allowed to be chubby"

I can't recall any recent laws that outlaw obesity, but since you seem to think there is, you're probably locked up in a federal prison, therefore out of biting range.

*Bow*

But can you atleast admit that if the internet, cars, planes, Advil, Tylenol, bluejeans, ipods, Foo Fighters, coinstar, Wendy's french fries, central air conditioning, shampoo, imported foreign DVD's, wall to wall carpeting, thongs, sunscreen, and everything else in your short little life that you take for granted because you've never NOT had them were all of the sudden taken away, you would miss them?

:iconsora-x-riku:
Sora-X-Riku Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2008
Of course I'd miss them. well, minus Wendy's, I've never tried it. Internet is incredibly over rated- I prefer snail-mail, my addiction to internet nearly destroyed my education. Planes are handy, I'll admit, but I get horribly airsick- I'd rather travel by boat, or train- a little bit rustic, with a nice view. Advil? Tylenol? What do you think I am, emo? I'm allergic to most painkillers, so that's a miss- ugly red rashes really suck. I don't wear jeans, I wear slacks or skirts 8D with suspenders <333 I don't have an iPod and I don't like Foo Fighters- in fact, I dislike most modern music, I think it's atrocious. At the risk of sounding pretentious, I prefer Opera and Ballet to rock concerts- might just be my upbringing, but hey, what can I say. I don't know what coinstar is, either, and I'm still alive-don't have air conditioning, either. We crack a window or sweat it out, we're poor. Shampoo, I would miss, yes-though, if I shampoo or wash my hair, my curls will fall out, so I don't use it anyway- did you know hair is self cleaning, if you leave it long enough? That's why people with dreadlocks don't have oil dripping from the tips. Takes about two or three weeks, trufax. I don't really watch movies, either, not since Pixar started to destroy anything worth watching- my taste in movies doesn't age past 1989, I could live without them. Besides, a book is more entertaining, stimulates the imagination. We don't have carpet, we've got wooden floors- which I prefer, actually. I'm WAY too big and scary to wear a thong, and seeing them yanked up and over the lip of a pair of jeans on some skank makes me ill. And I honestly don't go out enough to need sunscreen 8D

And ontop of all that, if I were in the 1800s, I wouldn't know any of those things existed. Can you miss something you didn't know about?

And I do apologize for the wall of text format- I just reply in like.

Omg! i feel the same way! There was a programme called lost in Austen (as in jane austen) it was amazing! This girl escaped from her life by re-reading the book pride and prejudice and anyway she ended up in the book and getting together with Mr Darcy - i was so jealous i just wish that could happen to me! *sigh* It was so romantic back then :flirty:

Oh god I agree whole heartedly....though I think back then my ancestors on one side were Romanian gypies and on the other were Aboriginal. owo That may have been earlier though and that was only half my heritage, I can't remember the other half....But I love all the clothing they had back then, and the music, and the Art Noveau style. I'm not a big fan of the Impressionist art style really, and my teacher thought it was odd I sounded so bored when I had to do a voice over for a presentation on the German expressionists.

So was I- but, for all being a huge enthusiast of the period, I have to say I feel lucky ^_^ Even though I feel I belong there far more, I'm pretty sure my life would be short and miserable back then, so it seems a better idea to look at it from a safe distance :) Besides, knowing a thing or two about the age, I always thought of it as of a sort of an ultimate, century- long horror story (but boy, the most splendid horror in the history of mankind! :w00t:), and it's always better to watch a scary tale in a cinema than being part of it... This stamp relates to me so much, but still I'm very happy it does :D An absolute must for a :+fav:, and the first stamp I'll use if I ever get a chance to! :clap:

The 1890`s were :heart:, therefore I should`ve been born 'round 1880..
Women were allowed to look better then! (Although they were`nt allowed anything else, and would probably marry at 16 and die at 30)
All the pretty clothing! (Which probably hurts more than it looks, and ain`t very sanitary (lol), and no jeans) but :heart: corsets!
And remember all the beautiful nature! (If you get away from the pollution of coal, the smog all over the cities, the frikkin cold winters (:heart:), the SMELL & the lack of good food..)

But damn.. Wonder if I`d live in France with that Earl who`s placed somewhere in my family tree? Or maby I`d just be a poor farmer.. :XD:

I love questioning my own dreams..

Heheh, there actually were jeans back then, and the clothes themselves weren't much more unsanitary than now- but they could be dangerous to health in different ways :) *Especially* the corsets, they were doing macabre things to the blood circulation and, sometimes, the internal organs :fear: A pity they were just starting to think of diets! ;D
As for clothes for women, it was far more that they weren't allowed *not* to look better than now :laughing: One of the expectations of a proper lady was to look beautiful and feminine, so it wasn't really even one of the few things they were allowed, but quite the opposite- and many of them were really mad because of that ^^; On a more positive note, there would be no need to worry about marrying before 18 in most countries; the legal age is a pretty old invention as well xD Life expectancy was also far higher, in fact, living to your 70ies was nothing strange, given you wouldn't be misfortunate enough to be born in a working class family :( Food could actually be one of the things that were better back then, too :D
... sorry for the rant- I just love the subject, and badly needed to relieve some stress today ^^; I just felt like babbling about something, I hope it didn't offend you! :)
