It’s Time For Hey! Did You See That Comment? Friday!

Can you believe it’s almost the end of October? I cannot. Mostly because I don’t have a Halloween costume yet. What are you going to be? If you’re still looking for ideas, Lizz has another (gay) halloween costume idea for you. Rachel talked about makeup which is kind of like a costume for your face. In non-Halloween posts, we’ve got recipes for savory scones and roasted mushrooms and asparagus. Riese visited Manchester 3 years ago (it feels like, at least)  and wrote about it, Deanne Smith felt feelings, and Gabby watched Almodóvar’s new movie. Katrina occupied a city and has a thing or two to say about real diversity, Lizz has the televisionary captioning contest, Laneia helped you, and Sebastian discussed LGBT safety and visibility in schools.
