Totally Frenched Out

From the blogger formerly known as Samdebretagne

Nous avons le plaisir de vous annoncer que votre message d'amour de St Valentin a été choisi. Il sera diffusé sur les 170 panneaux lumineux de la capitale, le 14 février, entre 6h et minuit. Chaque message est diffusé 20 secondes. Un total de 150 messages alterne tout au long de la journée.

Every Valentine's Day, the city of Paris offers up their electronic bulletin boards for all the amoureux. You apply online and then they choose 150 of their favorites to be run - so I was really excited yesterday when I got an email saying mine had been chosen out of over 2000 entries! C has the day off and says he has something special planned, so I wanted to do something unique for him too.

Y'all will just have to check them out and see if you can figure out which one is mine!! (Hint: It's all in French). For those not in Paris, you will be able to see them online here on the 14th.

aw very cool! i guess they don't tell you exactly when your message will appear? Did you tell C or will you camp out in front of an electronic sign until your message comes on and you say "regarde! regarde!"?

Hi Sam, That's so cool! Any chance of you sharing your special message with all of us, as well?? Hey - if all of Paris saw it why not me ; )
I was not able to see anything except a blank message sign using the link you provided....Happy Valentine's Day!
