This Week's Nose: A Thursday Worksheet

Theresa Cramer.

This week's Nose will feature an out-of-towner (sort of):  Simsbury-bredNY scenester Brendan Jay Sullivan. As if the rest of us on the Nose didn't feel winter-drab and culturally frostbitten already.  Also in the house, Jacques Lamarre and Theresa Cramer. 

At the moment, Santa's bag of Nose ideas seems a little light. 

This one is probably my fave at the moment, simply on a "I never thought of this before" basis. Here we are getting worked up about high school mascots when we have bloody, bloody AJ on the $20.  And Chu is my bro. (A sentence of 2- and 3-letter words.)

From here, things get a little flabby. Maybe my sense of what the Germans call Nosetopikvoid bred a malaise that in turn attracted me to a couple of "is anything anything anymore?" articles.  Is anything trendy? We might have to accept whatever answer Brendan gives us. In a similar vein, do all the most-visited sites say pretty much the same thing?

My theory about O'Reilly is that he's impossible to discredit because everybody already assumes he's a poop-filled windbag.

I double-clutched on this one because I thought at first that everything about it was fake, but upon further review does it not appear that Dove finds women tweeting morose things about themselves and tries to jolly them up in a manner that is one quarter cleansing cream?  And is this really so bad? As bad as Caitlin says? True, the same company, Unilever does make sexist bro deodorant.  Debroderant? WTF is cleansing cream anyway? 

As the producers here knoweth, I have a mostly treatable Maria Konnikova obsession.  If she were morose on Twitter, I could say many things to cheer her up. I would totally be her Doveboy (see above). But I digress. She says all this stuff about larks being better than owls is hooey.

That's all I've got so far. I wanted to show you I tried. I also had this, but I don't understand it, Jacques would never read it, and Brendan would wonder why he ever came back to Hartford where people don't get things like

In the footsteps of Segal and K-Hole, Starr maps social insight onto cultural opportunity. Whereas K-Hole launched #NORMCORE into the world in a free downloadable PDF, Starr has ostensibly gone immediately commercial, even bottling big-boy smoothies in baby food jars and projecting play centers for adults.

Theresa still has PTSD from the Oscar party(long story) She would probably enjoy some soothing hipster babyfood.
