james stewart and michael scott  
I finally sat my three important exams this week. I'm glad it's over. I have still three exams to sit in the next two weeks but it should be less stressful. I decided to take Friday and the weekend off. 

On Saturday, I had lunch at my friend's Julien (I had never been at his place before!). He's most definitely the most vegetarian-friendly friend I have ! He made soy and cereals steaks with salad and it was really delicious. I had never had those before so I'm grateful he made me try it ! We stayed in and chatted. It was really nice. He showed me around his neighborhood before I left. I fell in love with that area of Paris.

Today, I met up with my friend T and we went to see Rear Window which I loooved and I was pleased to see it was even better the second time. I have a newfound love for James Stewart. I don't know where that comes from ! It might be my 4th favourite after Psycho, The Birds and Rebecca ? I have to think about it... I have yet to see Marnie which my friend loves. 

And to finish with the screencaps, I couldn't resist putting some images of the Michael Scott / David Brent reunion on this week's episode of The Office. I really wanted kels450  to see that ! 

It put a big smile on my face. I didn't expect it would be so long ! It was really, really nice. I love these two actors so very much. I think their talent has no equal. You could feel Ricky Gervais is the boss which I found really amusing.
They were so cruel with David's last line (something like "is there a job available at Dunder Mifflin ?") ! They shouldn't tease us like this. They better find someone really good to replace Michael.

On Wednesday after my English exam I decided to go to the David Nicholls book signing. It's ridiculous but I am so excited to go ! I've never been to one before ! I probably need to learn how to spell my name after the Marcus Foster debacle (Morgane became Morjane !)

I hope you had a great weekend !

James Stewart ♥! Rear Window! It's definitely one of my favorite Hitchcock films, and probably one of my favorite films PERIOD. I also really love Vertigo (it and Rear Window are always switching places as my #1), Notorious, Spellbound, and Rebecca. I saw Marnie a while ago but I don't remember very much of it.

I'm very glad you love him too :) and I'm so glad Rebecca is part of your top 5 ! Nobody seems to like that film very much. I think Joan Fontaine is perfect. I love her :)

Ooh, Ricky Gervais!! YAY! Aw, thanks for posting the pics, i love them! :D I'm really tempted to watch the episode but i don't think i'd understand it since i haven't watched any of the others lol!!

And YAY, I'm glad three of your exams are over, and i hope the next few won't be too stressful. *hugs* xxx

I'm glad you like these Dear ! Well, you can still watch the very first seconds of the episode when they both appear together. I found it on YouTube : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AppVGPVYv4. :D But you know I'm all for you watching the entire show :)

Thank you Dear ! I think the worst is over :)

I absolutely LOVE 'Rear Window'!! I think it is one of my all-time favourite films. Grace Kelly is so perfect in it, I think. And it's so well filmed, the tension just builds and builds!

I'm glad for you that the American Office is bringing Ricky Gervais in! You must be so delighted!:)

I'm glad you love the film too ! It's absolutely amazing the way Hitchcock made such a thrilling film when the main character is stuck in a wheelchair ! Grace Kelly really is beautiful in it.

Thanks ! I was so happy !!

Morgane! You must know how much I love Jimmy Stewart, right? I don't know if we've ever discussed that, but I love Jimmy Stewart :o)

I haven't watched The Office in a while, but I did watch the Michael Scott/David Brent meeting--I've been dying to see that for years. I think it was great.

I hope your exams went as you hoped they did!

We've never properly discussed it but I think we talked about It's a Wonderful Life in Paris ! So he's one of your favourites ? That's really cool :)

I wonder what the general opinion is on that scene but I think they did a great job !! I'm glad you think so too.

Keep your fingers crossed for me :)

Jimmy Stewart! <33 It's impossible not to love him, right? And Ricky Gervais! Ah, I hope the episode airs soon over here. I can't wait.

Ooh, and the food looks delicious!
