I'm back from Asylum, my first Convention ever and maybe my last one... Yeah WHAT A MESS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry to start with the negative part, but it's hard to forget THAT part 'cause seriously it kinda ruined the fun. Let's do the maths :
- 3 hours to queue for registration (who told me again that it was gonna be very fast and last only a few minutes ??)
- 1,5 hours for my J2 squeeze
- 2 more hours to queue to get things that were supposed to be in our "packs" but were not 'cause nothing has been prepared before...

And that's only for the first day... I'm not talking here about the 2 hours queuing for each autograph (that makes 4 hours for 2 autos...) and blablabla !!!!!

BUT !!!
The guests were fantastics on stage they were hilarious. Misha is my new best friend since he made me laugh to tears on his last panel on Sunday evening. Jensen and Jared were very nice as usual, Jensen was very relaxed on stage Saturday morning even if the rest of the time they seemed kinda lost in front of ALL these fans.
That's my feeling about the con, because there were WAY TOO MANY people, everything had to happen very very fast, so I felt like a number, a piece of meat and nothing else. Jensen and Jared were still looking at you in the eyes when they were saying "thank you" or whatever but it was still pretty rushed.

So as for my own experience, for the J2 squeeze, I had the chance to talk to them a little bit. When I entered the room, the first thing that caught my eyes was Jensen's eyes ! They were all red and tired (and not just because of his surgery). He was dead on his feet. So when it was my turn, the photographer had to stop for 30 seconds to do I don't know what and I said to Jensen and Jared : "Don't worry, the queue is not that long anymore". Then Jensen looked at me and said with a very big smile "Oh Yeah ???" and he said "How many ? Like 20, 30 people ??" (hoping for 20) and I said "Uh no, more like 70 to 100" (we were 600 to have photos for that J2 squeeze to give you an idea) and he called Jared and said "OMG Jared did you hear that ? 100 people to come again" then Jared laughed like he does with all his body and then Jensen said something like "I'm never gonna be able to do that" and then it was time for the photo which took me by surprise and so I ended glued to Jensen and Jared is so far away from me on that pic that it's like he's not even on the pic !! Ah ah I'll post my pics later when I'll have the scans. Then I left put my hand on Jensen's shoulder and said "good luck" and he said pretty loudly (cause I was leaving the room) "thanks for the update". And yep that's it, first connection with the boys done !!

Then on Saturday my luck left me and in that huge huge mess I missed my photo shoots that were supposed to happen that day : jensen, jared and Misha. I only got the photo group shot and my autograph with jensen. There I gave my guitar picks to Jensen and he thought that it was a pretty cool gift and he was still saying that to the guy from the staff next to him when I left the room.
Sunday : got all my photoshoots done finally and I gave myself priority this time. If that's the game they want to play, I'll play, I'll play... So yeah I was almost first for everything. Everything happened very fast. Same thing happened for Jared's auto, he really liked the guitar picks ;o).
I was able to pass through security miraculously just after Jason Mann's concert and gave him personally the guitar pick too. He was happy with it and said he really appreciate it. I'm kinda proud of myself for this one, 'cause if I didn't try to pass through security I would not have that luck.

All in all it all end well with everything I wanted (even if I just hate my face on quite all my photoshoots), but will I go to Asylum next year ?? THE ANSWER IS NO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO WAY EVER EVEN IF THEY PAY ME !!!!! I'm sorry for those who will say "oh yeah it was a mess but we had so much fun and we got to see the boys". Well for me the HUGE MESS ruined everything. I hate fighting to get something I paid. They canceled the end of the goup photo shoot (luckily I got mine) 'cause they didn't have time anymore to do it and people will get refund. Well, hello ??? I'm not here to get refunds, I'm here to get my photos !!! So that's why the next day, I fought like every one else to be the first to all my photoshoots. Before that I was a nice little girl listening to what the staff was telling her, and I didn't get my photos, so the next day, I was a warrior !! ;o) No joking, I hate having to fight for something that's due to you cause you paid it !!!
So yeah no, I won't go back to Asylum, I still wanna go to a con in the US, maybe Chicago 2010.

I'm sure I have so many things to say about that con, but right now I'm gonna try to find some pics and videos from the best moments of this con ;o) I'll post more tomorrow I guess !!!

Hey flist this is probably my last post before I leave for Asylum. I'm only leaving tomorrow morning, but I may not have the time to post tonight.
Anyway just to tell you that I'm very excited about all that. I'm almost packed.
And also, don't wait after me for some beautiful shots of the boys, 'cause I really have a very shitty camera... I'll have a bad ass camera for my birthday in July but until then...
But who knows maybe I'll take great candid shots of the boys with my shitty camera !! We never know. And I'm sure lots of people are going to the con with big cameras so I'm not afraid about that.

So that's it, see you next tuesday... I guess I'll post then the tale of my trip ;o))

I guess I was bored so I did what I said I wouldn't do : create a twitter account !!!
So because I'm new to this, I don't really know who's on twitter and who's not, so please follow me and I'll follow you ;o)
This is so much fun !!! (I need to keep busy in a way to not panic thinking about my week-end coming... Asylum...).

My twitter user name is without any surprise : witchy78.

Have a good day flist ;o)

And oh, does anyone know Misha's twitter. I already have Steve Carlson but if you think about someone else, let me know.

No I'm gonna give you a review of last night epi... EVERYONE is already doing it so you don't need another one.

Anyway I just wanted to tell you that I received the guitar pics I made for Jensen and Jared for Asylum !!! I'm a little bit disappointed 'cause the quality of the pic and of the print are not the best at all but I guess that will do....
Here is one of them ;o))


I hope everyone is doing fine and that you all liked the last epi. Once again I'm not gonna review it but I just wanted to say that the end was great but I got a little bored during most of the epi... too much talk on Dean's side... Anyway, it was still a good epi, but not the best finally ever if you ask me.

Have a great week end Flist !

Hey super Flist, I need your help !

Does anybody have any very very very good cure for zips, spots !!!! I'm seeing Jensen, Jared and Misha in exactly 15 days and three spots appeared on my face these last days. The good thing about that is that they are all on the same side of my face, so it means I can turn just a little and they won't appear on the photo shoots !!!!

No seriously if anyone has a very good trick, like something your grandmother did and works very well, I'll take the advice !!!

Please help me ! Why is this happening to me ???

Oh and I went to see Star Trek today and it was really good, that was a nice surprise.

I've been tagged by irsandyberg  to do this meme, so I said, oh what the hell, I don't have anything more interesting to do right now (LJ is so dead these days). So here it is :

Firstly: If you've been tagged, you must write your answers in your own LJ and replace any question that you dislike with a new, original question.

03. Is there anything in your fridge right now that you would never eat/drink?
yep : a chinese beer that they give you for free when you order more than a certain amount. My husband always says he'll drink but he never does and it always end in the thrash (but I have to hide to do so 'cause if he sees me he'll say "no no don't I'll drink it !

I've been a stay at home mom for 2 years but i'll be back at work in september in the "twinings department" of my town.

Jordan Knight from the New Kids on the Block !!!

Too many cloths (jeans, tops) while waiting forminh_u  to join me for lunch. Remind me to never give her an appointment in a shoping mall ! NEVER !

12. What was the cutest thing you've seen today?
My sons hugging each other

13. Does the weather affect your mood?
Yep I always feel like I can do so many things while it's sunny out there, but when it rains, I feel like doing NOTHING !

15. What was the last movie you watched in the cinema?
Twilight ! Yeah we don't go often to the movies, but we're gonna find some time to go and see the new XMen ;o)

16. Weird dream?
These days I'm having nightmares about my sons : them being kidnapped under my eyes or us in a car being hit by a big wave, like a tsunami.... Well stupid I prefer not to think about all that

17. Do you have any siblings?
A selfish older brother ! Do I need to say more ?

18. What's something you'd like to say to someone right now?
hey Sonia, thanks for the spoilers about your fics ;o)

19. What are your plans for next weekend?
Having a party on sunday for my 2 year old son ;o)))

20. Say something about the person who tagged you:

I need to post this in my LJ 'cause sometimes you wonder why everything happens in one day...

First today is my younger son's birthday. He's 2 today. Happy birthday Esteban.

Then this morning I learned that I finally have a placement in a daycare center for Esteban. I've been waiting 2,5 years for that ! That's insane. So it also means that I'll be back at work in September which is not a bad thing, especially for my bank account.

Then this afternoon after school we had the joy to learn that Ethan, my older son (that's it I don't have other kids, you met them all ;o)) succeded at school this year which means he'll be in another class next year. He'll enter the CE1 for my french fellows who may wonder. That's an excellent news cause this year was the year he had to learn to read and write and THAT was not easy every day. I lost my temper more than once on his homework.

So what else now ? That day is not done, so we never know ;o)

That was a very great day, and it needed to be said 'cause we always complain when things go wrong but we rarely expose our joy when things are fine for once !!

Have a great day everyone.

I'm back and I'm glad !! I have a huge headache because of the 8 hours spend in the car, but tomorrow, it should be better !!

I have over 350 mails to catch up with. I've missed soooooooooo much : all the aussie con, all the fics (I won't be able to catch up with this, that's impossible), all my friends posts, all the asylum business with paypal (I still don't know what to do with that !), and all the great replies to my and others promts on the spn_hurtcomfort  community !!!

I need help !!!!!!! Tell me what was the most important thing that happened this week in the J2 world ?

Oh and my vacations ? Yeah they were fine, not a great weather, but the house on the beach was great. I'll send some pics later ;o)

ps : thanks to everyone who wished me some good vacations before I left.

Hey everyone,

Just to tell you that I'm leaving tomorrow morning for a week of vacations.
I'm going to the south of France with my husband and my kids. We rented a house on the beach so wish me good luck for the weather !!!

I'll take some pics for those who don't know that part of France. It's a beautiful place, a paradise for surfers 'cause the waves are huge there ;o))))

Anyway, it's gonna be hard to live a whole week without the Internet, without my computer, without LJ !!!!!!!!! How am I gonna survive ???
Luckily my husband didn't see the 4 last episodes of SPN so we put them on our Tvix and will watch them there. 

So bye everyone and see you in a week ;o))
