1: What did you do in 2016 that you’d never done before?

-I finished my first complete comics series. One that didn’t get dropped before the entire story was told. That was certainly a first.
-Oh yeah I joined a comics authors’ union (and it didn’t go too well, in the sense that I was pretty useless there)
-I tried to go vegetarian, or at least flexitarian. It’s not all completely going according to plan, but I’m making a lot of efforts. I cut off dairy products as well, more for digestion reasons than anything else, and that at least was a success.
-shotgun convention, where I made a fanzine, printed only a limited number of copies out, and sold everything in one day at a convention. It was the best idea ever.
-X-rayed my feet
-got sort of hit on in an onsen in Japan by a drunken lady ; it was really funny
-Also I obtained my 10-years immigration card !
-And there was a certain trip I went on but more on that below

2: Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

To tell the truth I kept none of them. One of them was : be more responsible, and I really don’t think I’ve achieved that. Also, « keep my bedroom clean as much as possible » and… hahaha. Yeah. No.

3: Did anyone close to you give birth?

OMG yes and it was the weirdest shit ever. Because it was a childhood friend to whom I can’t say I’m super close, exactly, but we get along really well, we’re somehow very alike and we’ve followed very similar paths in life… up to this point. So when her baby was born I was super weirded out, because it felt like it was something that had happened to me in an alternate universe, and on some level I felt sorry for me ? Like, the alternate universe me who had a baby ? Because I’m pretty sure it ruined her life as much as it would have ruined mine. Anyway. Super bizarre.

4: Did anyone close to you die?


5: What countries did you visit?

JAPAN. Trip of a lifetime. Felt a little weird at first because of all the expectations and fantasies I used to have about it. And when I arrived I didn’t take enough time to recover from jetlag so in the first few days I was kind of tired and depressed, but in retrospect it was a very good trip, even the times where I was off my tits with jetlag

I also went back to Mauritius in the summer but that’s not really the important part, that was just the usual with my family doing their best to get on my nerves.

6: What would you like to have in 2017 that you lacked in 2016?

Enough money to clear my debts… ? Also a published book, I didn’t have one this year.

7: What dates from 2016 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?

18th of April, in Japan, where HunterxHunter was published in the Shônen Jump. It was very emotional for me.
And the few days I spent in Miyajima. It was so magical and out of this world.

8: What was your biggest achievement of the year?

Definitely completing my comics series Rhapsody, and also the third volume of Geek & Girly. It was huge for me. And that fanzine I managed to print and sell almost all by myself.

9: What was your biggest failure?

Completely failed to be more responsible as I said before
Haven’t sent my novel to a publisher, haven’t finished my other novel either. I haven’t lost hope or will to do so, I just need more time.

10: Did you suffer illness or injury?

In March I hurt my back pretty badly somehow, just before going to Japan which, if I hadn’t met the very best physiotherapist in Paris who completely cured me after only a few sessions, the whole trip would have been a real goddamn bitch, what with all the horrible futons I had to sleep on throughout the country.
In Miyajima I managed to hurt my knee while climbing down a mountain, which again would have been a bitch for the rest of my trip if I hadn’t gone to see a Japanese physical therapist who didn’t speak a word of English. The conversation in my shitty Japanese and gibberish will be something I’ll remember for the years to come (here’s another first : going to see the doctor in Japan)

Stand up like a soldier baby / Yeah I know you're built like that )

Jus de pommes breton, caramel pomme-caramel au beurre salé, caramel chocolat-caramel au beurre salé, confiture d'abricot-vanille cuite au chaudron, saucisson aux cèpes, saucisse sèche de montagne, pesto à l'ail des ours et paquets de biscuits artisanaux speculoos d'une part et sésame d'autre part (avec un chouette emballage de hérisson et écureuil gentlemen)

Alors, pour les bonnes résolutions de cette année:
-il s'agira d'abord de prendre mon courage à deux mains et de tâcher de faire ma foutue demande de nationalité une bonne fois
-d'une manière plus générale et moins pénible, j'espère pouvoir écrire, créer et rêver plus en 2015
-lire encore plus de bouquins
-payer mes dettes

Et sinon la Bretagne c'était un peu le salon de l'agriculture que j'ai pas pu faire cette année; plein de bouffe (LANGOUSTIIIIINES CREEEEEPES FRUITS DE MEEEER RHAAAAA) et plein de produits locaux à ramener à Paris:


Ze butin. En vrac, galettes bretonnes, galettes de blé noir, palets bretons, palets bretons au caramel au beurre salé, caramels mous au beurre salé, confiture de fraises de Plougastel, cheddar anglais mature, nougat au caramel au beurre salé, fleur de sel de Guérande, craquantins chocolat noir et caramel, palets bretons aux fruits secs, biscuits façon Tatin, thé de Noël d'une excellente brûlerie à Quimper que hante [ profile] jainas et thé noir aux agrumes "L'hiver à Quimper", une création de la même brûlerie.

La couronne c'est parce que j'ai eu la fève du "kouign amann des rois" qu'un des convives s'était acheté. Oui. Un kouign amann des rois. Un kouign amann avec de la FRANGIPANE à l'intérieur. Et oui on y a survécu. True story.

Turned 29 yesterday, and I thought I could treat myself until my birthday party this Sunday.

Under the cut there be food porn, of course )

And since there's "9" in my age now, here's an appropriate gif:

So the annual Agricultural Fair of Paris was good.

We went to see the final Twilight movie. A lot of fun was had by everyone. Except the other people in the movie theater. I wish I could say I felt sorry for them, but I really, really didn't.

Billet Skyfall

So awesome. So awesome.

Today was the day of my birthday *party* (yes because I celebrate my birthday twice in a week that's just how I roll) and we went to see Skyfall in the morning.

Spoilers and other stuffs under the cut )
sevenswells: (What's up fuckers? (Ouran))
I've turned 27 today (er, yesterday, as it's two in the morning of the 31st of october right now) and this birthday was the coolest thing ever since the last one.

As always, so spoiled, SO SPOILED OMG )

Thank you guys for all your gifts and vows ([ profile] falling_voices, [ profile] coloredink, I heart you my lovelies!), you made this birthday very, very special to me, and I think I'm going to carry a smile as big as Nine's for at least a whole month!

You guise!

I'll be in London from the 19th of December to January the 3rd!

Obviously I'll be with my family on Christmas day, Boxing day and New Year's day, but if you're free on any other day and want to meet up with me, leave a comment here or send me a PM, and we'll see if we can hang out!

This will be my very first Londonian Christmas holidays, I'm very excited!! °0°//
sevenswells: (Junno eating)
I have opened a tumblr about food here:

It's all in French, but if you don't understand French, the pictures are fun to look at (I think). I'm talking about all the interesting food experiences I've had this year, from Kiwi burgers in New Zealand to dim sum in Singapore, but also the dishes I cook at home like fish and chips and roast chicken.

(about the title of the blog, "gurume" is simply the word "gourmet" pronounced in Japanese; it comes from the manga about food that I love the most, "Kodoku no Gurume", The Solitary Gourmet).

I'm ready to go lead me into the light )
sevenswells: (WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN (Sherlock))
Okay so I started watching Suits

Which is basically a show about a borderline-Asperger's pot smoking genius with ~feelings and a yuppie asshole without ~feelings who are in a relationship and who try to make their relationship work

And the show is called Suits because the yuppie asshole buys his Asperger's genius designer suits because he loves him even though he doesn't have ~feelings

And the Asperger's genius gets into all sorts of crappy situations because he ~cares so much and sometimes inadvertently hurts the yuppie asshole's ~feelings which he doesn't have, so the yuppie asshole has to threaten people and get jealous and save his socially awkward boyfriend from the clutches of whatever corporate villain of the week who tried to screw him

And there's Gina Torres who's really fucking sexy in it

And I'm making a lot of ridiculous noises watching it, noises that sound a bit like "meep" and "coo" it's really weird

I guess it's mainly a show about ~feelings you know

Oekakiiiiiiii! I'm back from Singapore where I bought the cutest Dorothy Perkins dress, and today mah homegirl Steph will be performing a girlvention on hopeless me to buy shoes that go with it.

OHMAHGAD, shoes! I've never felt so girly in my life!


And as a result... )
sevenswells: (TARDIS)
Okayyyyy, so, remember I was going to New Zealand in April, well I will probably make a detour via Singapore before I go back to Paris.
I will be there from the 20th to the 29th of April (more or less) to visit my cousin, but again, if there's anyone of my f-list in Singapore who'd like to meet me at some point, leave me a PM whenever and we'll set an appointment ;-)

Holy crap, exciting start of year so far! \o/
sevenswells: (Jayne's Thrilling Heroics (Firefly))
Guess who's going to New Zealand in April? :D Mwahahahaha

I promise I'm not going there to stalk Benedict, it's for my big brother's wedding, actually (and no, he's not trying to emulate Aragorn, he's really marrying a Kiwi woman).

So, f-list, if there's anyone living in NZ (the wedding is in Auckland but I guess we'll be moving around a bit to visit the country after that) who'd like to meet me for tea or a drink (or to eat a Kiwi burger OMG) at some point, let me know! Send me a PM or something. I love meeting new people and I've never bitten anyone who wasn't willing! :D

Or, if you live in NZ but won't be there in April, do you have any recommendations instead? What's fun to do there?

Wheeee! \o/
sevenswells: (Sherlock John kiss)
That's right bitches

Slashy tights under the cut ;D )

I have the best, most talented and outstanding friends anyone could ever dream of. Except now I have to learn how to walk with my legs drawn (pun not intended) together all the time.
sevenswells: (Sherlock John & food)
I've been trying to post this shit 500 times now. Please LJ. Please let me post this on my fucking journal.

Post under the cut is a liiiiittle bit image heavy, sissy bandwidths may want to keep out.

Om nom nom nom nom nommmm )
sevenswells: (London Sherlock John)
I'm swamped! Super busy! Lots of stuff to do! Aaaaaarrrrh!

But! I'll be in London (again! SUPER YAY!) very soon, so I was wondering: do you have any recommendations for me, f-list?

What's fun to do in London? What's good to visit? What's good to eat? If you have tips and addresses to give me, I will be forever grateful and will sing your prowesses to my grandchildren, not that I'm planning to have any (grandchildren, I mean, not prowesses), nevertheless, I'm being very sincere right now.

This request goes to the British people of my f-list, but also to anyone who's been to London and did fun stuff there: please tell me! I'm open to any suggestion!
sevenswells: (Stupid raisins stay out of my cookie)
As it is said in the title, five random things about food.

Om nom nom )

Tomorrow I'm gonna go see Moffat at the French Comic Con!
