The Day I Met Uhura
We've been cleaning and painting in anticipation of the baby's arrival. I found this in a pile of old photos. I'm the big-headed child on the right. That's Uhura (the actress Nichelle Nichols) on the left. My dad pulled me out of school that day to meet her at the opening of the movie. This is at the Portland, OR opening of Star Trek IV in 1986. My dad's pretty cool like that. I remember planning what I was going to say for days before and completely fuzzing out in person. She's a pretty stunning woman. Anyway, finding the picture made me smile and think of the stuff my (upcoming) son and I will do.
