Total eclipse of the...sun

The news has been total garbage lately. (SERIOUSLY, a pardon for Joe Arpaio? Trans military ban? White national dog whistling? Gross.)

So, let's talk about the one good that happened over the past week. 


I wasn't in the path of totality, and I didn't really know what to expect as it began Monday afternoon. So we went outside with our special glasses (that were a pain to find) to take a look. 

It turns out, eclipses are extremely cool. I mean, it looked like this: 

That never happens! I ran inside to tell my coworkers. 

Then I checked on the eclipse every five minutes for the next two hours. 

All my coworkers came out at the max eclipse time and we all "oohed" at the sun together. 

It was actually a nice, community thing that involved something neat (science!) and not, you know, protesting together against civil rights being taken away. Very cool. When's the next one?

I have post eclipse sadness disorder.

Game of dragons

This, you guys. 

I apologize to any non-Game-of-Thrones-watching readers. (But seriously, get on that. You're missing out.)

YAWN. This is the fifth weekend in a row I've been out of town for something (vacation, multiple weddings, bachelorette party, etc.) 

I'm now going to sleep for 36 hours. You'll get a much better post next week.
