History Friday’s #10 – A Tribute to Leonard Nimoy

In light of the sad news heard today regarding the death of Leonard Nimoy, I have decided to modify today’s quote and divert from the theme of history. I have also included two quotes today (one new and one old) as they are both Spock quotes that relate to friendship.

“Because you needed each other. I could not deprive you of the revelation of all that you could accomplish together, of a friendship that will define you both in ways you cannot yet realize.”

— Leonard Nimoy as Spock, Star Trek (2009)


“I have been, and always shall be, your friend. [places a Vulcan salute on the glass] Live long and prosper.”

— Leonard Nimoy as Spock, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan



November NerdBlock

So, today’s post comes to you primarily in the form of a vlog (with this bit of an explanation of course).

As I mention in the video, I signed up for something called NerdBlock about a week or so ago. I enjoy monthly subscription boxes and have been wanting to try out the American based Loot Crate for awhile now, but I couldn’t decide if the cost of shipping to Canada made it worthwhile or not. Then, while searching around, I discovered Nerd Block, which is a Canadian service. I think it works out to a similar price, but I decided that it was worth a try (and the fact that a t-shirt is included each month makes the price very reasonable).

I liked this months Block, so I think I’ll stay signed up for next month and we’ll see how it goes from there! I hope you enjoy the video I made of the “opening.”

Keep Smiling!
