In Loving Memory:

@>->--James Doohan--<-<@

Lt. Commander Montgomery Scott of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701

"No A, B, C, or freaking D!"

James Doohan was a man who touched many people's lives and gave them a lot of joy, which is a fine thing to be able to say about a person. Farewell, Scotty. I will miss you.

Current Mood: sadsad

The online tribute that touched me:

"I was sad to hear that James Doohan had reversed the polarity of his dilithium crystals for the last time. Respect is due to a fine comic actor and possibly the most patient man who was ever born. Anyone who hears "Beam me up, Scotty" from random passers-by every three minutes for well nigh forty years of his life without committing mayhem with a high-powered assault rifle deserves some kind of award."

Oh dear! Yes, I'd think that would get Really Annoying after a very short while.

I learned to speak with a Scottish accent from Doohan, even if his wasn't considered a very good Scottish accent. I remember it from when I was 5 years old. Scary, that.


I believe I shall go and drink something green in his honor.

Mu husband has a pitcher of lime-flavored Crystal Light in our refrigerator. It has a startling green color. I think I'll go drink some of that.


I loved Scotty best.
