To boldly wait

outfit by Sew Fun Doll Clothes
Well, My Darling Clementine's outfit is here ... but who knows when Clementine herself will arrive.

I feel like I'm stuck waiting in the original 1968 Star Trek episode, Spectre of the Gun.

As punishment for trespassing on their planet, the inhabitants condemn Captain Kirk and his landing party as the losing side of a surreal recreation of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone.

The setting for Tombstone is drawn from Kirk's memory, but the illusion has a surreal incompleteness to it – buildings are obvious facades, windows and pictures appear to float in mid-air, a floating clock, doors open to nowhere, etc.

The landing party also sees their equipment is changed; phasers turned into six-shooters, communicators and tricorders are missing, and there is no longer a way to make contact with the Enterprise.

And time is ticking away for Kirk ... and Me.
