Damnit, damnit, damnit.  I always knew when he passed that it would hit me unusually hard for a celebrity.  Yes, as a little girl, I loved watching "Star Trek", but I had a particular fondness not just for the character of Spock, but for Leonard Nimoy himself which stuck with me right through life.

He was something of a Renaissance man, really; actor, poet, photographer, musician.   As a teenage girl, my main crushes were David Bowie and Leonard Nimoy - mom knew this, and I remember she bought me one of Nimoy's books of poetry in high school, so I thought rather than quote Spock, I'd quote the man who played him, and a poem from that book.

"Rocket ships
Are exciting
But so are roses
On a birthday

Computers are exciting
But so is a sunset

And logic
Will never replace

Sometimes I wonder
Where I belong
In the future
In the past

I guess I’m just
An old-fashioned
Spaceman."   -Leonard Nimoy

My name is Kris. Chances are, I'm caffeinated. Work/create/read/write/compose/game/research/sleep, rinse and repeat.

I dream about soundtracks, playthroughs and Intel pixies.
