A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP- Leonard Nimoy
I actually got a text from my boss at the HoP today, telling me Spock had left. It really messed up my day.I grew up watching Star Trek. OhMyGawd I was so addicted to it when I was a young kid. I had all kinds of Trek toys an' whatnot...I might as well had gotten a tattoo on my forehead that said NCC10071, or whatever it was...(the ship # of the Enterprise).No, the world definitely won't be the same without Leonard Nimoy. No doubt- some greatness has been taken from us. I hope he led a full and happy life, and didn't hate on his legions of adoring Trekkies too tough.It can't be a lot of fun coming to terms with the fact that you will forever be known as Spock, and even after all this time more people know 'Spock' than know you.But hey, worse things can happen, right?Leonard will be missed, fer sure, but I've got a memory bank all filled up with good stuffs- Vulkan Nerve Pinches and the fine art of lifting a single eyebrow in query. Weird mating rituals and extremely dry sarcasm.And always have sooper-dramatic music playing in the background when you fight your boss to the death in the arena.:)Warp speed, Spock. Grab a red jersey dude and we'll beam down and phaser something.
Well said! May he boldly go, where no man has gone before.
I was surprised how hard it hit me since I didn't really grow up with Trek in that way you did, SinSynn. While I watched the movies and TNG as a kid I didn't see the original series properly until just a few years ago. Yet that amalgation of half-forgotten childhood memories and then filling in the blanks at an adult age somehow got me a sort of retro-active Spock injection. I think it might have something to do with my great admiration for Carl Sagan as well as Spock kind of feels like a sci-fi version of him.I don't know... I was down all day and then I sat down and watched some choice episodes and felt a lot better. Sooper-dramatic music while fighting your boss is always a great way to get pumped up! :D
I am still having a hard time accepting this. Thanks.
Yeah, I know what you mean. :(
