RIP Farrah
June 28, 2009

I have to give Farrah due respect after her long battle with cancer and the grace, dignity and optimism with which she displayed in her final days. I was a big fan of Charlie's Angels and thought she did amazing work in the Burning Bed and Extremities.

I remember my brother's had this poster hanging on their bedroom walls for some time in the 70's - what teenage boy didn't?
The hair. The swimsuit. The teeth. The nipples..
And I remember wishing and hoping that someday I would grow up to look exactly like her. Well that didn't happen.....but I did have the wing back hair thing going on there for a while. I may have at some point had a Farrah barbie too.

Rest in Peace Farrah, there will never be another red swimsuit quite as memorable.

I had that hair too. Just waiting to fix dinner and see what you were up to today. Nice homage to Farrah! There is a good story about her on cnn.com by a man nemed greene who met her while on a movie set years ago. It was a script he wrote and she was to be one of the stars in it. She was a great woman and down to earth, he said.
