I've actually always liked Franco-Belgian comics (you know, Asterix, Tintin and so on). I read plenty of those when I was a teen and I still love most of them.

I really liked Tintin comics when I was younger, nowadays not so much (if you've ever read those you'll know why). Hergé had a unique style and I appreciate it, but I won't most probably read those comics again. I also liked Goscinny-Uderzo comics; Asterix, Oumpah-pah, Lucky Luke, and Marsupilami (and Spirou and Fantasio) by Franquin plus Natacha by Waltéry.

But my favourite has to be Yoko Tsuno by Roger Leloup. According to Wikipedia (I'm lazy, sue me): "the series tell the adventures of Yoko Tsuno, a female electrical engineer of Japanese origin surrounded by her close friends, Vic Video and Pol Pitron. Their adventures bring them to, among other places, Belgium (Bruges), Germany, Scotland, Japan, Hong Kong, Indonesia and also into outer space." They also travel in time. I mean really, what more do you want from a comic book?

I live in a pigsty. Naah, just kidding! But seriously, I'm generally not very tidy person. I'm not a slob, I just sometimes can't be bothered to spend time cleaning and tidying the place. I'd much rather spend the time doing something I enjoy, like read or go running or drink coffee or something. I think the best description of my flat is that it is an organized chaos. If I try to make it presentable I usually don't find anything for a while after. And I like the way it is.

Okay, if you want picture what my flat looks like think Penny's flat from The Big Bang Theory. Overall, they are very similar. Bright colours, studio apartment, Ikea furniture, you get the picture. I love bright colours, seriously. I have a cherry red sofa and a canary yellow lounge chair. Few of you might cringe at that but together they work (and they are not right side-by-side). I don't think I could live in a place where everything is beige or brown or some other muted colour.

One thing I'd really like to change/have is more closet space. At the moment it's abysmal. My clothes could really do with more space and I'd love to have a dish washer in the kitchen (Ihate doing the dishes by hand). But all in all, I kinda like where I live now. :)

By listening to the Monkees.

RIP Davy Jones. You were such an icon and a delight to watch on television. *sad face*

For pretty much obvious reasons: I Wanna Dance With Somebody and I Will Always Love You.

"On the 24th of February, 1815, the look-out at Notre-Dame de la Garde signalled the three-master, the Pharaon from Smyrna, Trieste, and Naples.

As usual, a pilot put off immediately, and rounding the Chateau d'If, got on board the vessel between Cape Morgion and Rion island.

Immediately, and according to custom, the ramparts of Fort Saint-Jean were covered with spectators; it is always an event at Marseilles for a ship to come into port, especially when this ship, like the Pharaon, has been built, rigged, and laden at the old Phocee docks, and belongs to an owner of the city. "

I'm not going to tell you what book it's from, I'll let you guess. But I'll tell you this much, it's a classic.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I actually have two. I can not decide between the Half blood Prince and the Prisoner of Azkaban which is better so I'm choosing two.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Twilight. My friends are almost obsessed about that, but I think I shall just stick to my Harry Potter madness.

[Error: unknown template qotd] What´s the story behind my username? Well, choosing it was quite simple actually. JE is from my first name, JO comes from my second name. 763 is random numbers that I just liked. Easy.
