Alanis Morissette: Coming to Ireland next July

 

What’s Hot

Alanis Morissette

Coming to Ireland next July, and a musical of Jagged Little Pill is in the works. The Alanissance is here

Snoods

It doesn’t really matter if you think they’re cool or not, they’re keeping us warm in this weather

Beetroot and mint dip

Available at the deli counters in Dunnes and M&S. Smear it on everything. It’s healthy(ish)

Baby Hater

Comedian Joanne McNally’s upcoming documentary for TV3

Staying in

Hibernation season is upon us

First Fortnight

The annual arts festival challenging mental health stigma is on now

Netflix

Always a good way of avoiding the wind and rain, and better again in January when both Grace and Frankie and Star Trek: Discovery return with new series

Turner watercolours

The annual exhibition of Turner art at the National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin is one of the best things about January

What’s Not

Going back to work. In a storm

Seriously. Do we not have enough to be putting up with?

Talking about your January health regime

Can’t hear you, eating leftover Quality Street

See also: Dry January

If there is one time of year when you should drink, it’s January. Lock and load

Sales dregs decisions

Just because it’s 70 per cent off, doesn’t mean you need it

British passports

Nearly twice as many people in the UK applied for an Irish passport in 2016 than pre-Brexit

Ambiguous return policies

You should be able to get a full refund

Spring clean fail

When even the charity shops don’t want your unloved items, it’s time for the bin

People arguing about The Last Jedi

It’s a kid’s film. End of. You need to move on

Stand-up desks

Yes, yes, they’re ergonomic. They’re probably also automatic, systematic and hydromatic. Just stop telling us about them

Unwanted surprises

Finding different pieces of different toys around the house. Also applies to standing on Lego
