My Favorite Farrah Fawcett Movie

My list of favorite Farrah Fawcett movies is not very long. In fact, I think there's only one. Nonetheless, I did enjoy her acting in The Apostle (starring Robert Duvall in the title role). The movie is hard to characterize. It's really funny in parts, and it's also pretty dark in parts. It's also touching in parts.

As long as I'm talking movies, I had a chance to watch John Hancock, starring Will Smith. I did not expect much, but the film surprised me, and I really enjoyed it. It's now at the top of my "superhero" list of favorites (which, like favorite Farrah Fawcett movies, is not a particularly long list).

4 a.m. conference call

So I got up this morning for a 4 a.m. conference call with a person in London and another person in Australia. Our meeting lasted for about 40 minutes, then I went back to bed.

We were on the phone, as well as using a web plateform that allowed us to all view the same computer screen as we talked.

I suppose I shouldn't be amazed by stuff like this any more. But I still find the ease with which this is all done to be amazing.
