Did you get offline long enough to see the SuperBloodMoonClipse last night? Did you at least Instagram it? We didn’t: we were inside swearing at our crashy compy and at all the stories that broke over the weekend, once again causing us to ponder working through the weekend and making Wednesday and Thursday our official days off.

I know, “days off.” Right? I kill myself sometimes.

Here’s what you missed while you were lollygagging out there IRL all weekend like a human with an actual life.
