by Accidental Bear

Damn you Jeff. In order to make this rant I need to admit to watching Big Brother (Wow, I feel better, you know, first step to recovery and all, admitting). I have grown a super crush on Jeff Schroeder a contestant on reality tv show Big Brother. In my mind Jeff, my boyfriend and I have all held hands on a romantic picnic, oh and his fiancee Jordan is there, serving us egg salad sandwiches, pickles and Orange Crush Soda (My dream, not your!) So, to my surprise I now find out he’s a homophobic scumbag, allegedly. Jeff I still want to see naked Polaroids of you but you’re an ass (until proven otherwise).

Girl with No Legs, No Arms Says Cheerleading Tryout Unfair So she’s practiced. Her older sister, a former cheerleader, helped her figure out ways she could cheer from her wheelchair. Julia, who’ll be a junior at Aurora High School this fall, was born without legs and with arms that stop short of her elbows. This spring, for the third time, she tried out to be a cheerleader. For the third time, she didn’t made the squad. Last month, she and her parents, Mike and Carolyn Sullivan, asked the Aurora school board to correct what they see as “scoring errors” in her tryout evaluations this spring, saying she was given no accommodation for her disability.

Weird Writing Habits

The Weirdest Writing Habits Of Famous Authors  It’s an old topic but it always manages to be interesting — what did the authors we love do in order to write what they did? Beyond the jobs they held, what habits did they have that made writing possible? We take a look at 10 modern authors who had unusual approaches to writing; some due to the limits they would impose on themselves, others due to what they would wear or how they would attempt to channel greatness. Regardless of their methods, they have all produced work of lasting value. We might learn a thing or two from them if we’re willing to get out of our comfort zone and see the craft as just that — a skill to be exercised, not a bolt of ideas that comes if you wait long enough. So read on, dear readers, and tell us in the comments section who we missed.

ROBERT REED SHERWOOD SCHWARTZ X390 (GETTY) | ADVOCATE.COM
Sherwood Schwartz, the creator of TV landmarks Gilligan’s Island and The Brady Bunch, who passed away early Tuesday in Los Angeles, is remembered fondly by those who knew him.

And despite rumors that Schwartz was conflicted over star Robert Reed’s homosexuality and refused to attend Reed’s 1992 funeral because he feared knowledge of the actor’s HIV-positive status would harm the franchise, two of the actors who played Bradys say that’s not true — Schwartz and Reed simply didn’t get along, but it had nothing to do with the fact that Reed was gay.
