More Subway Shenanigans

If anyone liked the idea of the subway party I mentioned last week, here’s some more inspiration from Improv Everywhere:

This event went live on Bastille Day, though obviously it has nothing to do with France. I apologize for my random non-Paris postings of late, but you’re probably picking up on the fact that I’m partial to anything goofy – regardless of location.

I do have enough hair for the Princess Leia do should we decide to stage this here, but I think a black Princess Leia might confuse some people.

What scenes would you want to see reenacted on the Paris metro? Any idea what might work for a French audience?

paris (im)perfect?

Sion Dayson is paris (im)perfect. Writer, dreamer, I moved to France on – no exaggerating – a romantic whim. As you can imagine, a lot can go wrong (and very right!) with such a (non)plan. These are the (im)perfect stories that result.

Share the love!
