A To Do List and Suggestions S'il Vous Plait

So I'm going to Paris on Thursday and have spent exactly zero time on figuring out what I'm going to do whilst there. Suggestions please? I've been once before but it was only for a couple days, hit the major sights/museums and went out to Versailles then. Want to do something different this time. And EAT. Been browsing chowhound trying to find suggestions and oh gosh, I think I'm going to spend all my money on food. ALL of it. Anyway, I'm going to be mostly on my own which I still haven't figured out if it's a good or a bad thing considering how bad I am at talking to people and making friends.

Things I need to do by Thursday;
1)Clean room
3)Finish yuletide signup and TPF secret santa survey
4)Find a place to stay in London (anyone know anywhere cheap? I just need one night, it's a 22 hour layover)
5)Figure out what to do for a week in/around Paris
6)Figure out what to do for a day in London
7)Pick up pants (finally got around to getting my collection of nice but too long pants hemmed! Seriously, that was like $500 worth of pants/jeans sitting in my drawer that I couldn't wear some of which I bought years ago)
9)Put new music on ipod (anyone have any listening suggestions? I've been basically listening to the Babel nonstop lately with some country tossed in) and new books/fic on e-reader (anyone have any new long fic suggestions? I should figure out my current fandoms but if there's anything you totally love in any fandom, please rec it! Hell I've been reading Teen Wolf fic lately and I've only seen like 3 eps, I'm totally good with reading in fandoms I don't know well)
10)...I'm sure there was a number 10. It'll come to me. Hopefully...


Re: 4 - I don't know if you're staying at Heathrow or Gatwick, but the good news is that the airport hotels are generally (and strangely) cheaper than the city centre ones.

If your layover is at Heathrow and you might be going into the city, try Ibis (http://www.ibis.com). They're a budget chain, but they're comfortable and their prices are pretty good for hotels near tube stations. If you're planning on hanging out in London for some time, get a day travelcard. It's really hard to find comfortable hotels for cheap in London, especially now. You can do the hostel thing too, but it's totally up to you and your comfort level.

Although... if your layover is at Gatwick, I strongly suggest you just stay there for the 22 hours. :( I was just there and it was a giant pain in the ass to get to Gatwick from London.
