Mighty Mac Meal and a Diet Coke

So you may have heard me bitch and moan about the world and its addiction to jogging. Indulgence and general piggery have taken a backseat as hardcore sprinters continue to renounce anything that doesn’t involve a race to the death. Significant Other has notched up a half-marathon whilst I am currently foraging for late-night chocolate. […]

The Only Way is Mute

Daaaay Fooour in the Big Brotha house. Chantelle is in the kitchen eating toast. Way back in 2000, we were still reeling from the potential glitch in our global computer system; little did we know that we had yet to encounter the real Millennium Bug. Six months later, Big Brother was launched in the UK […]

Auld Lang… Sigh

Amidst all the hullabaloo of Christmas, we kind of forget that another year is ending. For the past two months, commercialism invaded our minds to the extent that we had to expel all else to make room for it. Now that Christmas has released us from its clutches and we have once again rang in […]

Black Monday

It’s nearly the 8th of December so brace yourselves; Irish mammies are coming. It is a well-known fact that the Feast of the Immaculate Conception was created by God so that women could get a head-start on their Christmas shopping list.

Life Is Not a Disney Movie

As we edge closer towards the holiday season, we welcome back with open arms those treats that we can only enjoy once a year, lest we resemble Augustus Gloop. Time to tuck into cinnamon lattés, chocolate puddings and turkey stuffing. *drools on keypad* Alongside food, movies are also a vital component to everyone’s Christmas and […]

You May Now Kiss The Groom

As babies of the internet revolution, we are more than familiar with how quickly the world moves. Notifications plague your existence and you’re tagged somewhere before you even arrive. Ireland has seen more progression in the past decade than ever before; Irish mammies are jumping out of planes and dads are using predictive text. What […]

Rest in Peace, Rom-Com

Are you still in mourning? It is with a heavy heart that many bid farewell to the iconic noughties, the era of jelly sandals and body glitter. One thing that was salvaged from the wreckage however, was the legacy of truly terrible romantic comedies. Our loyalty to Sandra Bullock was unwavering and we welcomed her […]

When Hairy Met Sally

Happy Movember everyone! The eleventh month is proud host to the annual competition of who can grow the biggest mo’. For men across the country, it’s time to shave that excess facial hair in order to pave the way for… even more excess facial hair. Once upon a time, in a faraway era known as […]

Damn, Who’s a Sexy Witch?

So it’s that time of year again, folks. (And for the love of sweet baby Jesus, I don’t mean Christmas. NOT YET.) The witching week is upon us and adolescent girls all over the country are making a very important decision: Playboy bunny or rotting zombie? Ever since we decided we could extend the Hallowe’en […]

How Tequila Hangover

Roll over. Turn off alarm clock. Sit up straight. Oh, I actually don’t feel that terrib- OH DEAR GOD I’M GOING TO DIE IN THIS BED. And I have work in less than an hour. How can I go to work, when I have already died? Catch sight of zombie self in mirror. Attempt to […]
