Yesterday evening I received a formal agreement from one of the banks I talked to about the loan, I'm still waiting for other answers (from banks with better rates) but I'll always have this one to fall back to.
The loan was the trickiest part of the process, I'm not saying it's done just yet but things look a hell of a lot brighter than they did yesterday afternoon.
I still can't believe I'm gonna have my own flat, I think I won't believe it until I get there and start unpacking and moving furniture around. Actually it's more like I don't want to believe it in case deal goes south.
I still have to fill some applications and forms, you wouldn't believe the paperwork you deal with when you buy a flat.

News from geekdom : about 2 weeks before season 3 of Dr Who, bring on the new assistant ! Heroes so totally owns me (can't wait for the hiatus to end), Primeval doesn't look too bad and if anybody going to Serenity 4 watches BSG season 3, I'd love to have a chat (looking at you [ profile] cerulean_blu :)

Speaking of Primeval, anybody feels like meeting up to watch an episode and doing a drinking game. The show calls for it !!! :)
And I'm happy to see they're keeping their trend to hire former pop stars in Sci Fi shows. So far Hannah Spearitt (previously member of S Club 7) has displayed more underwear than acting skills but if Billie Piper was able to pull it off maybe she can too.

Finally, I'm leaving tomorrow for Glasgow to attend Serenity 4. If anybody has some tips about the city or want me to bring back something, now would be a good time to say so :)

I. Would. KILL. To do a Primeval drinking game with you. One shot for each man inexplicably in love with Abby. One shot for each time the Home Office takes a conspiracy theorizing university student seriously. One shot for each time Helen reminds you of Irina Derevko.

When you have your own flat, do you know what that means? THEME PARTIES. One day, not too far from today...theme parties.

I don't know why owning a place denotes that...but it should.

Have fun in Glasgow!!

We would end up sooo drunk :)
I'll talk to the girls, we so need to do something like that next time you'll come our side.

I could do that but most of all, my flat means open doors policy for everybody who needs to crash in Paris, virtual or RL friends. I'd like to have people from all over crashing at my place :)
And we still could have THEME parties :)

Thanks, I definitely will !!

YAY! Just random YAY! for tomorrow. Arriving in Glasgow at 8. In the AM. Oh the joy of a very short night ahead.

BSG. Yes! Dying to talk about that one. How frakkin amazing is it right now? Also, Mark is totally rocking that ep.

I'm YAYing with you on this one :)
I should be in town around 5 pm. I'll call you when I get there (if I don't get lost).
I tried to call your mobile phone tonight but for some reason, it says "the phone you've called cannot accept your call". Just to be safe can you text me your phone number (mine is 00 33 6 63233715). Good luck for the short night.
We need to find a decent pub, I owe you a pint for the T Shirts and everything :)

So true, Mark stole the show, he was mesmerising !!

A Dr Pepper bottle? (50cl, not a big one) ;-)

Hmmm... Can't remember much about Glasgow. Apart from the fact the Holy Grail castle is north from it. ;-)

Well if I can find a package thick and tough enough, I'll see what I can do :)

Aww, huge con envy for S4, maybe we could do a swap of con discs afterwards? I give you the copies of S3 and I can watch the con I missed, how's that sound to you?

Good luck on the flat as well. I can imagine how cool it will be to have your own space finally.

I so wish I was going to be watching the premier of the new Dr Who as well, even more envy!! I still need to catch up on Heroes, I've not managed to see any of it.

Have a great weekend in Glasgow! I shall probably be booking my ticket for Serenity Infinity as soon as they go out for those who missed S4. I'll be having a busy winter for conventions at this rate. Have to make sure I save lots of money now to get to them all.

Take care.

We'll do a disc swap, no problem. Which reminds me I still need to reply to your email with my address and everything (not late yet, just long overdue :).
About Infinity, I'm gonna try to book one ticket for Fan' (she couldn't make it to Glasgow), I know you spoke to Elisa and she's gonna try to book one for you as well. You're lucky to have friends in high places :)
So far, I've got Infinity, the Minear-Whedonverse one and probably others... Too much cons, too little money :)

And yay, once I got my own place, it will be open door policy for all my friends from France and abroad.

You need to catch up on Heroes, trust me you're going to love it.

Sounds great! And yes I really do appreciate having friends with connections. *g*

Which is the Minear-Whedonverse con? I'll have the Browncoat Cruise in December as well as Infinity at the end of the year. I'll have to make sure I save up enough money for them this year.

Not sure yet. I had forgotten about it actually, until Gail reminded me.
I know Sean mentioned it at some point. I need to dig up a bit and I'll come back to you.

Infinity is the first week end of October. Are you going back to the States for the Browncoat Cruise ? What is it exactly by the way ? Like The Love Boat but with our BDH instead of Goffer, Isaac and the Doc :) ?

I will be going on the cruise, from what I gather it will basically be a 5 day trip with some of the BDH's on board with various BC related activities, as well as traditional cruise stuff you can go and do as well.

Bravo pour la banque, si une est d'accord c'est un bon début!
Presque bienvenue parmi nous, avec toutes les charges et les joies d'être propriétaire...:)

Le problème c'est que le courtier a eu une réponse positive d'une banque dont les conditions sont meilleures mais ils ont pas l'air pressé et je commence à stresser un peu moi, j'ai mis l'autre banque en stand by et je peux pas attendre 107 ans. D'ailleurs je vais de ce pas le rappeler ( comme pratiquement tous les jours depuis ces 2 dernières semaines :/ )
Merci pour le soutien :)
