Things to do in Paris in May

I'm going to be in Paris next week. I'll be alone for three days, and with a friend and her 2 year old daughter for four days. I'd like suggestions for the non-obvious things to do, for restaurants and cafes to go to (by myself and with my friend), for nightlife (there will be a babysitter at night), for places to shop, and for restaurants and activities that adults can enjoy that will be acceptable to a two year old.

How can I see London's Rolling Bridge curl up outside of the scheduled times?

Is there any way I can request a special rolling of London's Rolling Bridge while I'm in town? It normally curls up every Friday at noon, but I won't be in town for it. What are the chances that I can catch or request an unscheduled curl? (And if you've got any better ideas for what I can do in Paris and London immediately before and during the first week of May, I'd love to hear 'em inside, too...)

Ivy Jivey

A Princetonian character in The Dud Avocado (set in Paris in the 50s) is described as saying mostly "zop zop". Was this a real thing? Part of ivy/preppy or Paris-based emigrant slang? Part of a larger lexicon of nonsense? No one in the novel (thus far) seems to think it remarkable. [more inside]
