Sam and Cait are definitely being more open in SA than they have for a long time. Costars posting selfies together is a classic way of how dating romance rumors get started, so after everything that's happened over the past year, I think it's really interesting that Sam and Cait have now started being open about their shared downtime again. I think the last time S&C posted a selfie of the two of them hanging out "personally" away from work was Sam's selfie of them having lunch in January 2015!

I kind of consider the bed selfies from exactly 2 years ago today hanging out personally but that was sort of OL related since they were live-tweeting. but they were live tweeting from a hotel bed together????? with alcohol???? and also say what you want I’m convinced they went out on a date right before this

I mean EITHER WAY. it’s been a really fucking long time and god bless South Africa forever and ever amen. 

no offense but i hear the drums echoing tonight, but she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation, she’s coming in, twelve-thirty flight the moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation, i stopped an old man along the way, hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies, he turned to me as if to say, “hurry boy, it’s waiting there for you,” it’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you, there’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do, i bless the rains down in africa, gonna take some time to do the things we never had

I bless the rains down in Africa

I feel like this song has become a meme weirdly specific to me.

It’s gonna take a lot to take me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had
The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless, longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what’s right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what’s deep inside, frightened of this thing that I’ve become
It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do

if the lead singer🎤of toto and my girl😍both drowning🌊😱and I can only save one😖catch me at my girl’s funeral👻💀blessing the rains🌧💦down in africa

This list is by no means comprehensive and will be added to, hopefully not just by me but by yourself too. It is heavily biased towards history and archaeology at the moment mainly because I am an archaeologist. Hope you find this useful.
