God Speed Scotty
'Star Trek's' Scotty, James Doohan, dead at 85
I guess God needed some more power from Heaven's Warp Drives. Mr. Doohan will forever be a part of our American culture, and will be missed by all. Especially us geeks who to this day still shout 'Scotty, I need more power' at everything from blenders, lawnmowers, and cars.
God Speed to one of the best damn actors, WWII Veterans, and Federation Engineers ever. Also, exfbonnie reminded me that when it's my turn to go teets up, I can now look up and say "Beam me up Scotty"
UPDATE: According to the BBC Doohan's ashes will be sent into space, "following those of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry." Very appropriate. I just hope it's not a NASA-run organization sending him off.

Dittos Bonnie, I forgot to mention the 'beam me up' line. Didn't realize you two were such trekki nerds.1:39 PM
LOL, El Capitan. Not much of trekki nerds. Although, my dad is. We watched it everytime my dad had it on. ;)9:12 PM
El Capitaon - thanks for the props. I love that you posted about "Scotty." My last crush was a Scotty..ok that has nothing to do with anything here, sorry. yes, we (desult and I) are trekkis by proxy because of our father, even if we didnt want to be.10:12 PM
El Capitan, That was EXFBonnie that posted the upper one. I'm not schizzo.11:15 AM
"It's life Jim, but not as we know it...." that's a very funny song called 'Star Trekk'n." It's sad that you're sister knows it, but so do I. Of course since your brain cells are identical, it reflects poorly on your record as well ;o)
I know the song buddy. That's where I got the, "it's worse than that, he's dead, Jim."
So we're all of our records reflect poorly, but damn, at least we're not alone.
And I can't phrase a sentence properly today :( However, I think you know what was meant.2:24 PM
I hope your aim is better ;o)
