Well, it was a pretty solid day. I was up with the alarm, got my 20 minutes in and was back by 6:30. It was pretty cold out, but the lack of wind made it bearable. Other than that, not a whole lot went on today.
Oh wait, I lied.
Leonard Nimoy died, unfortunately. He, as Spock, was always one of the sci-fi folk I remember growing up. Him, Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, and the star wars crew. The rest of the Enterprise crew wasn’t really that important, there was no differentiation to my childhood mindset. It may have been his ears.
But then when we got History Channel, he was on Histories Mysteries, and ever since watching those on reruns, he was always the calm actor. He didn’t seem to be showy, didn’t necessarily seem conceited, and was always a class guy.
It makes me sad.
So tonight, I’ll be watching Star Trek 2: Wrath of Khan (death of spock) and Star Trek 3: The Search for Spock (where he comes back). Sure, it’s escapism, but it seems to be the best way to personally mark his passing.
