Looking for a job in Paris...

I would apply to be a policewoman on rollerblades if the job description didn't include pursuing criminals down cobblestone streets! Fortunately, the "petition girls" detained by these policemen didn't look as if they were going to run anywhere.

Position Wanted:

American woman looking for job with flexible hours. Willing to work days, nights and/or weekends as long as office is located outdoors, preferably next to the Seine. 



It's a pity that my skill set doesn't include playing the accordion...
or painting.
But now that I have a French driver's license, I could drive tourists around the city in an open Citroen 2CV "Ugly Duckling" 
or in a Yellowpedicab, although this could be a real challenge if my passengers find Parisian food as hard to resist as I do!
Even though bright orange is one of my favorite colors and chatting with colleagues while standing in the sun is appealing... 
I guess that I'll keep on doing what I'm doing - blogging about Paris.

    1. I don't know how anyone managed to stay indoors today. Several of the waiters were even doing something that I've never seen them do before - sweeping the sidewalks as an excuse to stay outside. It was gorgeous. Just the right weather to have a picnic in the park with phread.

  2. If you find a job ... please pass along the details!! I'd however also need a French hubby to help support me! I'll be looking when I'm there this December :)

    1. LOL - the glorious weather convinced me that I don't want a job but I'll be sure to let you know if I hear of anything! As far as French hubbies are concerned, I know a couple of Americans who met their spouses on the French match.com.

  3. I would so do the "Ugly Duckling" tour with you! Could I pop my head right out the top as we ride around? Of course only if it was your side job...I'm not about to give up my "Out and About Paris" fix :)

    ...and BTW, LOVE the new banner! So fresh and crisp...onward to year two!

    1. For some reason, your comment ended up in my "Spam" box and I only discovered it today. Sorry!

      I would love to take you on a spin in an Ugly Duckling - it would most undoubtably be thrilling! Especially if I was trying to explain the history of Paris while weaving through traffic. Yikes!

      And thanks for your comment about the new banner. I always appreciate feedback about what works and what doesn't.

  4. If you worked outside and didn't blog, how in the world would anyone know where the best hot chocolate in Paris is at?! The blogosphere needs your research skills.

  5. Exactly! Finding the best hot chocolate is definitely my mission in life! The hours are long, the work is tedious and the research is mundane...but someone has to do it. ;)

  6. ah, the humor is good in this one. Of course, don't you have a truck-driving license? That could be a lucrative option, maybe as a delivery/hauling service. You could have handsome French men to do the lifting and moving, you would do the driving.

    Or maybe you should tap into your psychic abilities and set up a table. Or adapt a "Lucy as doctor" profession with a stand along the river and give life advice for five cents, or euro or whatever.

    Glad the weather is so nice for you, here too.

    oh wait, I've never seen policemen on rollerblades, that's sort of crazy, especially with all the old streets of Paris. Crazy I say.

  7. I've spent a large portion of today considering where I should set up my "Lucy as doctor" booth. Dispensing life advice and/or information to tourists for 5 cents is a wonderful idea. For those who aren't in need of life advice, I could take group photos for them. This is one of the most frequent requests that I receive as I'm walking through town anyway. I guess that I must look like an honest person who won't run away with their camera...or perhaps it's because I always have mine slung around my neck so they figure that I don't need another one.

    And policemen on rollerblades - it was a first for me too. I've seen them on horseback on the CE but never on rollerblades. Since I had just waved off a group of petition girls, I was happy to see that the policemen had taken another group into custody.

  8. HAHAH I love this. Luckily you're a Lady of Leisure and your job is this blog! So you get to enjoy being outside no matter what (how amazing was yesterday!)

  9. A policewoman on rollerblades…that's quite fierce and attractive at the same time. :P Well, you can outrun (or should I say outskate?) criminals that way, but yeah, the cobblestone streets make it a bit difficult. Haha :P I’m at awe of your shots, Mary. How long have you been practicing photography?
