Sometimes I'm happy I can make Sunless Sea references nobody gets. Other times I'm sad

My plans for the eclipse: Hide in the basement with shades over the windows playing video games while wearing sunglasses just in case.

I do not trust myself to resist the urge to stare into THE SUN THE SUN THE SUN THE SUN THE SUN THE SUN THE SUN THE SU--

Trying to find the thread where somebody was tooting about fingers not having muscles in them, because I just remembered it again and it's kind of freaking me out toot.lmorchard.com/media/uIaq3
