Dreams and dresses...  
Ok, that's it - no more Downton Abbey right before bed. I had amazing, vivid dreams... Both the content and the costuming were just lovely, but they made facing the real world with its trials and trousers quite the disappointment after lovely beaded gowns and fancy balls. Again, it was one of those dreams where you suddenly are shocked and dismayed to remember was only a dream... Damn, I want that life and those dresses!

Only the upper class life. :)

But yes the dresses are fabulous. The suits are pretty good too.

Well, I did specify THAT life. Yes, there were plenty of lives in that period that were horrid, but not the one my dreams had cast me in.

"Facing the real world with its trials and trousers" is now one of my favorite expressions. :-)

Happy to be a source of amusement. I don't know why the trousers were the specifically offensive part of the experience. I mean, it seems the going to work at all would be the primary insult, but there was just a particular indignity of having to put on pants was just beyond the pale. ;)
