When I went to my first, and only Star Trek convention. Leonard Nimoy was there and I remember I planned on being all cool and collected. No big deal. But then I saw him come out on stage and I was giddy as a school girl. I wanted up jump up and down and scream, I didn't, but I wanted to! What a sad, sad day. An amazing Sci Fi Icon!

What a sad, sad day
Today Leonard Nimoy died. He was 83. I can't believe Mr. Spock is dead. Star Trek is and always has been such a part of my life. I always said Star Trek TOS was like mashed potatoes, a total comfort food. Something I could watch whenever I didn't want to have to work at paying attention or concentrate. When I just wanted something to be comforting. I remember when DeForest Kelley died. He was the first one of the group to die and I remember thinking, now they can never make another movie, they'll never be altogether again. The end of an era, and now Mr. Spock is gone. I feel very sad. I think I'll be watching a lot of Star Trek in the next couple of days.
