Rose Tyler Appreciation Week → day five: one underrated moment
↳ “People say there was this girl, and she sat with Pete while he was dying,”
I am going to die surrounded by the biggest idiots in the galaxy.
this is from a real diary by a 13-year-old girl in 1870. teenage girls are awesome and they’ve always been that way.
Like most fans of Jess & Co., EPs Dave Finkel and Brett Baer “love it when the gang is together" Baer tells TVLine. And this season, "for the first time in a long time, they’re all single." The premiere finds the consciously uncoupled friends capitalizing on that freedom as they try to hook up at the last wedding of the season. That’s where Jess and Kat (a hot genius played by Jessica Biel) will square off over the best man… and, wait a minute, Nick is cool with this?! Finkel says the exes "have made an agreement that they’re moving forward and they are going to be supportive of each other,” and that Miller has reverted to “not trying too hard." Sound familiar? "We want to take everyone back to their roots, their Season 1 personas," the EP continues – which means more dough for the D-bag jar! Schmidt is "back to his beginnings as an all-around douchebag,” Baer says, noting that the roomie uses his expertise to help Jess break into online dating. Elsewhere, Coach becomes a permanent employee at the school where Jess is now vice principal, and Winston “commits to doing something dangerous" — being a cop. On a related note, we are assured that Ferguson is still in the (meow) mix.
BONUS SPOILER | A two-episode arc set in Oregon will enlighten us about Jess’ past.
“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”
Shut up already.
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection.
As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…
A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier. Her dad has ALS. The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp. And they did. She posted pics.
So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.
barcelona! not the city barcelona, the planet barcelona.
