Jumping a joke across threads isn't funny I guess.  Comedy is so fickle....

I think Nikki Minaj is brilliant.

I agree, she's built her brand up pretty bloody well, she's probably pretty smart, or surrounding her self with some smart people, possibly even both.

Exactly, it took a while for people to acknowledge the same for Lady Gaga, Madonna, etc though I guess

I'll keep an open enough mind that if she produces any music I can stand I'll acknowledge it, but so far everything I've heard from her is grating and horrible to me.

I also saw her act, thanks to watching "The Other Woman" with my wife.  I compared it to someone doing a half-assed Fran Dresher impression without any of the comic timing.

I think she's funny, which is a sort of brilliance.

How do you know if someone has run a marathon?

They'll tell you.

Same applies for how you know someone is going to run in one.  ;D

Yay! Christmas decorations are going up in the city today  :)

I never understand why people talk about the 'commercialization of Xmas' like it's a bad thing.

What's not to love about big dumb decorations, pretty lights, happy kids and general cheesy goodness? What do you have when you take away the commercialization? people going to church? FUUUUUUUUCK THAT.

I don't mind the commercialization of Xmas, but I hate the craze that some people put around decorating early and shopping for it.  Just calm the hell down, decorate in late November or early December or so, and if you happen to be in a Wal-Mart or Target or something try not to start a violent riot or trampling incident because you need that new printer.

You'd prefer how sterile and dull shops and stuff normally look to Christmassy decorations?

I'd prefer the shops to look appropriate to the next upcoming holiday.  We still have one big one left here before I start thinking about Christmas, and stores here have been selling trees since mid-October.

Yeah, I like the cycle of Holidays, I love ritual, so it's a little sad to ignore one in favour of the next big one in the view of the shops.

I always put the decorations up on St. Lucy's (with a soft opening of the season on Krampusnacht) and they come down on Epiphany, which is longer than most people I know, many take them down on Boxing day, probably because they've had them up since November and are tired of the things by then.

Eh, the more holidays the better. They're one of the few good things about religion; that it legitimized reasons for having a party.

Originally? Cork.
Most of my formative years though? Stratford (long family connection there too, one of my ancestors drowned in the Avon and is memorialised opposite Bill Shakes).
