Hi! How was your weekend? Are you ready for The Eclipse tomorrow? It’s, like, quite “the thing” in my neck of the world and nearby. We’re supposed to be able to see 99.2% where we are, but we’re going to head south a smidge so we can experience the eclipse in 100% totality. OR we’ll realize that traffic will be a nightmare and it will be better to just stay home and accept less than perfection.
Speaking of the sun, moon, and space in general, these incredibly lucky SOBs found vintage NASA flight suits at a thrift store. - (Gizmodo)
Did you binge all of The Defenders Friday night? Can you picture Jessica Jones knitting? What about Daredevil? What about both?!

Maybe it’s the eclipse that has me slightly on edge anyway, but, you guys, TayTay deleted ALL of her social media posts. That’s weird, isn’t it? - (Celebitchy)

Jane Austen’s books inspire the works of many authors. Elle Katharine White has taken Pride and Prejudice and added dragons in Heartstone. This is no word-for-word retelling with an occasional dragon thrown in but a full re-imagining. Though most of the plot won’t be a surprise, not everything works out the way it does in P&P. Which other classics should have dragons added to the story? (Cannonball Read 9)
