hobbitofkobol: (MOVIES SoM I'm an angel)
I posted icons, for the 1st time in... 9 months. Mostly shows I needed icons for and couldn't find any I liked lol. And some Lost icons I'd been sitting on for months.

Sean Harry just announced that EJO will be a guest at Invasion next year. Duuuude. Just as I was thinking "um, not that excited about this one, not enough BSG guests." Now that's 2 I've never met + 1 from Caprica + Clea Duvall who was on everything ever. So I'm thinking Echo-2 + Invasion next year. I'd really like to go to Basauricon 2.0 in Spain too because helloooo Katee+Trucco. Is it 2011 yet? 2010 is a bit boring for me :(

So yeah, still need a job like woah. I got an email a few days ago from a company saying they wanted to talk to me on the phone following my application and they sent me really detailed information about the company and the job. So I emailed back saying I was still very interested and was available all days this week and the next and gave my landline number so that we could arrange a time and date for the phone itw. But still no news now! Frustrating. It's actually a job that's really not in my usual area (which is food industry) but still in marketing and it sounds interesting.

the ADJECTIVE meme

oh and there's this one too, if one word is not enough lol

hobbitofkobol: (DW who da man?)


Round 3 Poll
Once again, don't forget that you're voting for TWO guys and TWO girls OVERALL (not two per poll question) that you find LEAST attractive.

poll )

In TV news, loved Lost and V, BBT was funny but not one of the best, was disappointed by Glee & HIMYM, still haven't seen this week's Castle & House & USoT. I think that's it?

Job itw went ok, imo I did better at last week's (still haven't heard anything from that one, which is making me anxious). Will know if I get 2nd job itw next week.
hobbitofkobol: (BSG trucco hhhhhhhhhot)
I've seen it around at a couple of friends' LJs so let's do this again! (and I was bored last night so I spent the evening looking for pics)

As a reference, the final results from last year. I changed a lot of people in the lists to match my current crushes/preferences and/or just to make it fun (7 to 8 changes in each list!). And I'm providing pics to make your choice easier.

1. I picked 20 female and 20 male celebs I find attractive.
2. Everyday (or so) I'll make a poll and you'll have to vote for the TWO girls and TWO guys you find the least attractive (and later on just one of each).
3. With the daily poll I'll post the results with pretty pictures of the people who were eliminated.

I know both polls are divided in two parts but it's because LJ's limit is 15 options. Remember to vote OVERALL for the TWO girls and TWO guys you find LEAST attractive.

lists and Round 1 poll )

In RL news, I have a new job itw on Wednesday! (unrelated to last week's)
hobbitofkobol: (CHUCK hi)
[Error: unknown template qotd]

well, duh, I've been to quite a lot of conventions so...

You'd think I'd get used to it but no, it's still very exciting to meet someone you like/admire. And I've been lucky enough to have only met awesome people who were at the least lovely and glad to meet the fans and at the most beyond awesome.

as for random encounters, I ran into Andy Serkis at the Museum of Science in London

and let's not forget Roch Voisine at the Fouquet's hahaha I didn't even recognize him at first


Two voicemail rejections in two days, both because "they chose someone with more experience". What annoys me is that they KNOW I'm inexperienced when they meet me, it's clear on my resume, and yet they still use that as an excuse ugh. I'm feeling a bit blue right now, I'm so tired of all this.

How awesome was Chuck last night?
spoiler cut )

Apparently the ratings reached a low and Josh Schwartz is tweeting that Chuck fans should get organized... But hey NBC, don't you have, like, a zillion timeslots now that there's no Leno at 10pm???
hobbitofkobol: (COMM abed&troy shenanigans)
I removed my brace today (doctor advised to keep it 10 days at least, it's been 2 weeks). It feels a bit weird, it hurts a bit but in a different way as before, I think it's plain induced by wearing the brace lol. It feels so good to type like a normal person with both hands and all!

I got 2 calls from recruitment agencies that were interested in my profile. They both told me I should hear from the company that hired them soon. One call was today so it's fresh but the other one was Tuesday and still no call so I'm wondering what that means. :( Especially since they told me they want to fill the position as soon as possible. :(

from [livejournal.com profile] fannish5

List 5 fictional doctors you'd want treating you. (Or not.)

- Gregory House: I wouldn't want to have to interact with him but at least I'd get the right diagnosis.
- John Dorian (Scrubs): because of his bedside manner and we could geek out about random stuff or watch TV to distract me
- Simon Tam (Firefly): because he's pretty
- John Carter (ER): because he's good in stressful & extreme situations (Darfur anyone?) and I ♥ him
- Captain Awesome (Chuck): because he's awesome, duh! And a surgeon, right? I needed one of those on my list. (what is Simon's specialty?)

I'm sad about not having any women on this list. Almost included Cristina Yang but then I thought of Awesome and he's nicer to talk to haha.

- Jack Shephard (Lost): omg stop projecting your daddy/island/Kate issues on my case and stop crying
- Sherman Cottle (BSG): this is a non-smoking area, thank you
- Ethan Rom (Lost): just too creepy
- The Todd (Scrubs): sexual innuendos and painful high-fives, no thanks
- Dr Robert (BSG): in case I'm from a planet he doesn't like

*PS: isn't this quote a rip-off from Arrested Development? only with pie instead of sandwich? whatever, you're still awesome, Community
hobbitofkobol: (BTVS giles + TV)
Thank you all for your kind comments on my last entry. ♥

So yes, I have a job itw in Paris next Thursday. And another one near Le Mans on Tuesday (a 2 1/2 hours drive, ugh). I hope one of them will turn out well!

Meanwhile, a TV meme I stole from [livejournal.com profile] hopelessfangirl

questions&answers )

I'm still playing a lot of Beatles Rock Band and getting better (it's getting better all the time) at it. I can play all the songs in medium level for guitar and bass and get 92 to 100%. I even tried to play a bit of bass in hard level and for some of the songs it was okay, I need to get used to moving my left hand. You know what's annoying? When you miss ONE chord in the whole song. Oh and when you get 100% at a guitar solo and are all proud of yourself and then bam! Somehow you miss an easy chord right after that.
hobbitofkobol: (ANGEL/TMM vampiric puppet)
Status on my BSG auction item: it has shipped and has traveled from California to Philadelphia. Estimated delivery date = Monday. Merchandise description: Costume from TV Show. LOL

Can't remember if I mentioned this here but I landed a 2nd itw for a job! (the one from last week) Itw is next Wednesday. I guess my "spontaneous cover letter" was good enough!

Have started reading the Sookie Stackhouse books. Sometimes listening to the audiobooks instead. A woman narrates the story and her Bill & Sam voices are hilarious (to me). Also, this quote:
"Eric is much better looking than I am," Bill said. "He is more powerful, and I understand sex with him is unforgettable."


I've joined yet another whedonland-like community! It's [livejournal.com profile] himymland and it's focused on - wait for it - How I Met Your Mother! I bet you didn't see that coming, right? lol So please join the fun! I landed in Team Lily&Marshall.

I had other things to write about and forgot. I'm busy writing fic for the fic fest at [livejournal.com profile] whedonland. One is done (Better Off Ted fic!), two to go! One of these is a unlikely crossover with (so far) 3 references to 3 other shows lol.

Oh I know, I'm watching Merlin. It's fun. It makes me say things like "Hey, King Giles, shouldn't you be doing the research about spells instead of letting Gaius do it?" And of course in my mind the only Gaius is Baltar. The next episode I'm watching has Santiago Cabrera, and I knew he was in it, but I didn't know he was playing Lancelot! I find this hilarious for a reason.

Glee is back (for real) tonight!!! Fall season is starting at least!!! yay!!!
hobbitofkobol: (FNL coach yelling at Saracen)
I'm feeling blue today... meh. And I've been feeling tired for about 10 days now because of my stupid pollen allergies. I need sth to cheer me up. And a new show to watch because I'm done with season 3 of FNL... IS IT SEASON 4 YET? I have icons now yay.



Remember (or not) the job itw I had? The lady called back to tell me the answer will not me before 2 weeks because the General Manager is on a business trip and didn't have time to review all the applications (then a few of us will have an itw with him). Waiting is a drag but at least it means I'm still considered for the job from her point of view I guess! (she's the direct superior of the position)
hobbitofkobol: (HIMYM job search)
Job itw went ok, it was quite long as first a lady made a presentation about the group and the company and then I has the actual itw with the Product Manager. I think it went better than the last ones but I totally blanked when she asked if there was a commercial or other promotional device that impressed me recently, and then again when she asked me about their competition (I said a few names but they were all in the pharmacy circuit, not supermarket - the company makes dietary supplements). And yes, the 3 strenghts/3 weaknesses question came up lol. I think I managed it well. She's seeing a few other candidates next week and then a few of us (maybe 2-3?) will be selected to meet the CEO.

Round 6 of the Hot Celebs poll!



Round 6 Poll
We're halfway there! Down to the last 10 for each list!
Vote for the TWO guys and the TWO girls that you find the LEAST attractive.

the poll )

I finished season 1 of FNL last night and it was epic! I still don't understand everything that's going on when they're playing football but I think I'm picking up some stuff. Go Panthers! And I love most of the characters (for some my interest in them varies) and I think my favorite overall is Mrs Coach, she's awesome!
hobbitofkobol: (BSG tahmoh)
I need to find "3 weaknesses" to admit that are real, but don't cost me the job, for tomorrow's itw. Ugh. My main flaw is to be "reserved", the PC version of "shy" (which I am at the beginning when I don't really know people) but I can't use that, because no one wants to hire a "shy" person. I hate these questions. They always come up.

Now for sth completely different...

Round 5 of the Hot Celebs poll!



Round 5 Poll
Vote for the TWO guys and the TWO girls that you find the LEAST attractive.

the poll )
hobbitofkobol: (BUFFY xander oh noes)
You may or may not have noticed that I had disappeared from the internet since Sunday. There was a terrible storm at home Sunday night and lightning stroke and my internet box died. Got it replaced only... right now. Anything important I missed in your lives or fandom?

So how was life without the internet? Well I took advantage of this time to watch almost every pilot episode of every unseen TV show I have on my computer (that's a lot, like, 10) and I've now watched the first half of season 1 of FNL and I want Coach Taylor to coach my football team even though it's not the same football.

Oh and I have a job itw on Friday morning :D

But let's go back to serious business with Round 4 of the Hot Celebs poll!



Round 4 Poll
yay only one question per gender! we're down to 14 people
Vote for the TWO guys and the TWO girls that you find the LEAST attractive.

the poll )
hobbitofkobol: (GLEE don't stop believing)
RL update
Got negative answers for both last week's job itws. yay. Hello square one, how have you been?

- It's so weird not having a to-download schedule lol. Instead of taking this opportunity to catch up on TV or finally starting highly-recommended shows, I'm rewatching ER from the beginning. WTF self?
- And instead of making my entry for [livejournal.com profile] dollhouse_lims, I made GLEE icons (see icon I'm using).
- This speculation about sth shown at ABC's upfronts (=possible LOST spoiler, if true I'd say it's big) makes me happy but I don't want to get my hopes up.
- The TV Gods LOVE me this year. Maybe they want to make up for all the FAIL I had to go through before? EVERYTHING I watch is renewed (the exception being Pushing Daisies, but it's 2008 news). EVERYTHING. Even one show I love but didn't want to see renewed as the finale was awesome and I had closure (Scrubs). My only loss is the shows whose ending was programmed (BSG, ER).
(for the record this season (fall/winter) I watched: 30 Rock, Being Erica, Better off Ted, Bones, BSG, Castle, Chuck, Dexter, Dollhouse, ER, Gossip Girl, Grey's Anatomy, Heroes, House, HIMYM, Lie to Me, Lost, Parks&Recreation, Party Down, Private Practice, Psych, Scrubs, The Big Bang Theory, The Office, US of Tara)

Hotness Poll, Round One
Let's play the Hotness Poll! I saw this in a few of my friends' LJ and I'm bored (humor me, I'm unemployed!). And it gives me an excuse to post pretty pictures everyday for a while.

1. I picked 20 female and 20 male celebs (lol, celebs... most of them are from TV and wouldn't qualify as celebs for a mainstream crowd) I find attractive.
2. Everyday I'll make a poll and you'll have to vote for the TWO girls and TWO guys you find the least attractive.
3. With the daily poll I'll post the results with pretty pictures of the people who were eliminated.

hobbitofkobol: (DRIVE serenicar)
Well after watching the 3rd episode I can say that I love Drive.
But the ratings are so bad it's probably gonna get cancelled :(((

meme from [livejournal.com profile] superfrayed

Put your favorite movie that the corresponding actor stars in, and then add one actor to the end.

the list )

Job interview tomorrow! *freaks out*
hobbitofkobol: (FIREFLY serenity)
I think I've just turned my dad into a Browncoat. Mwhuahahahaha. I watched the 3 first episodes of Firefly with him and I think he liked it.
I miss these characters :(

Lost was all WTF and still confuses me. But I loooove it when it does.

- spent a good part of the day at the International Fair in Nantes, that was nice
- I got a job interview! Next Wednesday.

Still working on my BSG claim at [livejournal.com profile] 10x10variated, 22 icons so far, 78 to go! I'm having trouble with one of the categories, "trends" because I usually dislike them. And I have no idea what the recent trends are. I couldn't bring myself to make an icon with a red blob so I made one with a light pink blob hahaha.
I'm extremely happy with a Kara&Lee icon and an Anders one.

Going to bed now watch SFU in my bed. Arthur Martin!!!!1!111!!!
(Ruth spying on him running LMAO... I like infants, they smell good... and the big dead guy falling off his casket hahaha)
hobbitofkobol: (AD tobias fire sale)
lol the whole last page of my flist is people complaining that they can't comment.

maybe the Jamboree broke LJ? even if you can't comment, go there, it's the most awesome way to get prepared excited and all fangirly for the return of The Office tomorrow yayyyyyyyy

I'm weak, I claimed BSG at [livejournal.com profile] 10x10variated.

I have 3 rants today.
Uh. At my meeting today there was a cool nice oldish guy but also an obnoxious one who basically kept saying that what we were doing was pointless and whining. For instance, we have to write down our "network" (as in "all the people we know") to sum up what they can do to help us find a job, etc. and the idiot said "I can do it by myself, I don't need other people, what's the point?". The moron. It's not like begging them to find you a job, it's letting them know what you're looking for so that if they hear sth interesting, or know people in the branch, or anything (like borrowing a car, or spending the night at their place if you have an itw in the area). BTW writing down that list? It's gonna take me forever! First, I have a lot of relatives, and now a lot of them are adults. Then I also have to list my friends, my "everyday" connections (like the neighbours or the baker lol), and the friends of friends etc.

And two other rants go to two really bad drivers that crossed my path in a 30 seconds interval. First the guy that overtook me, cutting in so frakking close to me that I got really scared. Not a surprise that his number plate ended in "75". Parisians tsk tsk tsk... just don't drive like the rest of us. Then the old couple who was parked on the side just before my exit and who decided that it was time for them to go back into the traffic just when I was taking the exit. And didn't even notice that they made me jam on the brake. Ring road, I hate thee.

my list )
hobbitofkobol: (HEROES sylar brrrains)
The guest list for the Heroes event at the Jules Verne Festival has been updated. In addition to Tim Kring and Jeph Loeb Zachary Quinto (SYLAR) and Missy Peregrym (CANDICE WILMER) will be there!
I'm still hoping for more guests ;)
I'm gonna see members of a TV show cast for real! OMG.

Woke up at 6:45 am this morning and had to drive in heavy traffic. I talked with my appointed counsellor for a while but it was just a kind of introductory meeting. I'm coming back on Wednesday afternoon for a (3-hour!) collective session with general information about job search and stuff.

Time for Vmars on TV now! Ahoy Mateys episode (yay there's Mac in this one)!

ETA: I have sth in common with Angelina Jolie! Who knew?
Your Celebrity Boob Twin:

Angelina Jolie

BSG season 3 finale!!! )

Ok, now back to preparing my phone interview for Tomorrow. If I manage to stop freaking out about this finale asdfghgjhjlùs;v; paijdaur)àpiajfvneoufaemùvjùoùù;zl
hobbitofkobol: (LOTr what would gandalf do)
Remember my job interview back a month ago? After I re-wrote them an email, they finally wrote me a letter telling me I didn't get it. I was sure of that but come ON! I just don't get how companies can be so unpolite and don't tell you you don't get a job until you ask them. That's just rude and disrespectful. Unfortunately they all do that. And they call themselves human resources.

Watched some more Grey's Anatomy and there was Terrence Steadman from PB, Micah from Heroes and Duncan from VM! lol My mom recognized Duncan as she watches VM everyday with me now.

omg Chris Lowell and Kristen Bell are so cute )

Last night I watched Music&Lyrics on Danielle's recommandation... omg that was such a cute movie!!! and has Hugh Grant singing and shaking his butt dancing and being overall charming and very cute Drew Barrymore. The clip at the beginning made me laugh so much. The music is very addictive. I had a look on allocine.fr to see the French name of the movie and its release date... March 14th... and its name is now Le Come-Back. Ew. I mean, the purpose of a different name is to make it French-ier.

My internet is being wonky again... *sigh*
I'm writing this offline and my Office download cut at 51% :(( I want to see the JJ Abrams episode!

And gotta go, we have movie tickets expiring tonight so my mom and I are going to see sth... not sure what yet because there are no movies I'm dying to see right now... mmm...

Internet is working again! (for how long?) Huzzah! *posts before it cuts again*
hobbitofkobol: (LOST/PB Scofield&Sawyer!!!)
Had a great weekend so far.

- last night and today with my friends was great, we had a lot of fun about silly things and drank rum and ate a lot of things with maple syrup, including a "poutine" that was very weird
- woke up at 11:15 am because my cell phone rang, I didn't answer but some guy left a message saying I had sent him a CV and that I could call him back. The thing is, I have no idea who he is (name was no familiar) and he didn't say which company he was from! I don't even know if it's for an internship or a job... And anyway, WHO calls you about your CV at 11:00 am on a SATURDAY? I didn't have any of my things with me, so I thought I'd call back on Monday, I fell it's more appropriate!
- football game was great!!! we won! And played well! But missed a penalty kick, again. And I've realized that I didn't have any favorite player in the team as the best ones had left but now I have one. Julio Hernan Rossi is made of awesome.
- tonight I'm sleeping one hour more because it's Winter Time day
- tomorrow my brother and his family are spending the day at home, yay

and GIP!!! how great is this icon by [livejournal.com profile] canadianmobster!!! I totally thought of this crossever during the last Lost episode!!!

people commenting on icon posts can be so weird sometimes

I have the Prison Break French theme song stuck in my head. Ugh. How awful.
I also heard Joey Starr's new "song". It hurts my ears for real.
I really hate French Rap music. Except IAM, the lyrics are very good, especially the third album and they had a song with a lot of references to Star Wars, that was so cool.
