Moving Into Downton Abbey

Top 10 reasons I want to live as a servant or as Lady Darcy at Downton Abbey:

10. Uniforms. No more worry about what to wear each day.

9. Someone could make tea for me. I would definitely drink more tea if I just had someone to make it for me.

8. As a servant, I wouldn’t be expected to be married. So my status as a singleton wouldn’t feel like such a disappointment.

7. No guilt about lounging around all day.

6. At Downton Abbey, my employer would actually appreciate me. I’d receive a real Christmas gift and there’d even be a dance held for me. And if I needed eye surgery, my employer would take care of it for me. My current employer just threatens to cut my pay every year. And there’s no Christmas gift.

5. I could have someone do my hair every day. EVERY DAY!!!

4. Cool things would happen at my job…like getting to drag a dead body the length of the hall.

3. I’d get to hear British Isles accents all day long.

2. There’s a piano, so I could still be musical. And even as a servant, all my meals would be made for me.

1. I could marry my hot, hot cousin Matthew. Because after all, a hot cousin is much better than anything that’s been presented to me in real life.

  3. Stopping by from the Follow-Swap Blog Hop to say hiya!

    It really would be nice to have someone to do my hair for me every day. I mean, why should I have to deal with its uncooperativeness all the time? :)
