The Comment Awards Are Scared Straight (But Not, Ya Know, Straight)

Happy Halloween to you! I hope you’re enjoying a crisp, cool and creepy day and plenty of sweet treats.

Speaking of treats, this week we ranked the 50 best Halloween candies and 25 pumpkin beers. If you’re staying in tonight why not get cozy with your activity partner (or cat, or some mac n’ cheese) and check out some seasonal movies available online? If you’re going out but still looking for that perfect costume think Tegan and Sara. Because T+S is always the answer, with the rare exception of emojis and Taylor Swift.

We also talked about your tattoos, midterm elections and how to get a raise. Finally, Robin reported from America’s first cat cafe, the best thing you didn’t know you needed in your life.
