Re my last post, this is my great great grandmother, Grandma Ingram (oddly nobody in the family knew what her given name was as everyone who knew her called her that). I’m told I have her eyes, which were described as “snapping black”.
Francis Farmer - Old silver screen era stock photo I found in a frame behind a picture of my great great grandmother. I think it was a 30s frame (gorgeous glass scroll work, but unfortunately broken).
Me: I'll climb up this rickety ladder so I can measure the cabinets.<br>
*waits until I'm half way up* You sure you don't want me to do it?<br>
Nope I'm good! I just need to climb on this tall counter to reach this.<br>
Why don't we let me do this. I really don't think you should...<br>
*turns to answer Mom* O.O OH. MY. GOD. *clings to the cabinets* I'm on the freaking counter! *hugs the fridge* Oooh my god I'm so high up. *looks down to see the floor getting farther away...<br>
*rolls eyes* Every damn time, like a cat in a tree.</p>
Yes I did eventually get down via the rickety ladder. I had to be coaxed with promises of chocolate.</p>
(We are watching ‘Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.’ It is just at the beginning of the final battle, when an orc shouts ‘Fire at will!’)
Mom: “If they say fire at Will, but he’s not there, who do they shoot?”
Me: “Legolas. They’re the same guy.”
(My mother pauses for a moment, before laughing hysterically. Legolas is played by Orlando Bloom, who also plays Will Turner in the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ films.)
this is personally in my list of things you must reblog when you see it
Nichelle Nichols on meeting Martin Luther King jr.
"I said "I’m going to leave Star Trek because (I was going to say ‘because I have an offer to star in) …I never got that far”
He said "You cannot - you cannot"
and I felt like that little boy Willis "What you talkin’ about dr. king"
(laughs) "But you know I didn’t say that"
"But I was taken aback, and I didn’t say anything, I just looked at him"
He said "Don’t you know understand what this man [Gene] has achieved?"
"I just looked at him" and he said “For the first time on television we will be seen as we should be seen every day – as intelligent, quality, beautiful people who can sing, dance, but who can also go into space, who can be lawyers, who can be teachers, who can be professors - who ARE on this day, and yet you don’t see it on television – until now…”
"and he went on and I could say nothing, I just stood there, realizing every word that he was saying was the truth"
"and he said, “Gene Roddenberry has opened a door for the world to see us. If you leave that door can be closed. You see your role is not a black role, and it’s not a female role, he can fill it with anything - including an alien"
"And in that moment the world tilted for me, and I knew then, that I was something else, that the world was not the same. That’s all I could think of, what dr. king said ‘the world sees us as we should be seen’ “and i remember being angry come sunday. “Why me? Why should I have to?…
"Whatever happened come monday morning I went to Gene, and I’m not sure to this day what I was going to say. He’s sitting behind that same dang desk and he had whoever he was talking to leave because I went there first. And I said “Gene, and I told him what happened" and I told him “If you still want me to stay, I’ll stay - I have to" and he opened his drawer and said “God bless dr. martin luther king, somebody knows where I’m coming from" and he took out my resignation — that was torn into a hundred pieces and handed me the pile, and we just stood there looking at each other, and I finally said “Thank you, Gene, and he said “Thank you, Nichelle"
"And my life’s never been the same since, I’ve never looked back, I’ve never regretted it. Because I understood the universe had somehow put me there, and we have choices - are we gonna walk down this road? are we gonna walk the other..and it was the right road for me"
