How random. Back in January when I was visiting Paish , she mentioned the word flaneur/flaneuse and starting to define it, but I had actually just gotten the rundown in a book I'd finished 2 days earlier, A Town Like Paris. What a coincidence...
Last night on the finale of the Hills, Kelly Cutrone threw the word out there.
And THEN... on ponymalta I discovered the term for this called the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon. The day after it occurred again.
