I really do.
Good morning everyone!
There will be grits in my immediate future. Good morning
Been watchin' Star Trek TOS. Great as I remember it.
It's social commentary was second to none...
Kind of reminds me of us.
think of us grit-less people. good morning all.
I got leftover roasted potatoes to go with my bacon and egg burrito...with a little medium salsa. I'm all set.
Kirk musta been ripping that Yeoman apart behind closed doors. Like a pitbull on a poodle. The job of Enterprise captain was very stressful.
I smell fried chicken!
Star Trek television show
Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry cast Whitney in the role of Yeoman Janice Rand, the personal assistant to Captain James T. Kirk, in 1966. Whitney said: "I was on diet pills trying to stay thin — and I was very thin. They wanted you to fit into the uniforms and I couldn't quite so I went on amphetamines." Whitney appeared in eight of the first thirteen episodes, after which she was released from contract. She had claimed that, while still under contract, she was sexually assaulted by an executive associated with the series. Later, in a public interview, she stated that Leonard Nimoy had been her main source of support during that time. She went into more details about the assault in her book The Longest Trek, but refused to name the executive, saying in the book, "This is my story, not his."
In a later interview, she said of her termination from the series:
They wanted William Shatner to have romances in each episode with a different person, because for him to be stuck with one woman was not good for him and it wasn't good for the audience. That's what they told me, so I was written out. There were two blonde girls and one black girl. Nichelle was a more important character and couldn't be written out. Everything's political in America. One of the blondes had to go. The other one was engaged to the boss, so guess who went? I just about killed myself. I drank, that's what we do, we drink to get rid of pain. I was really mad. My God, was I bitter.
Spock was her main source of support during that time.
"There there, hun. Come here. I will comfort you. Just rest your head in my lap"
Pay no attention to the green bitch in the next trailer.
Is it a work day?
