I see Farrah Fawcett has died. ‘Charlie’s Angels’, which made her name, first appeared on NZ tv in 1977, around the same time I turned 13 and the old hormones kicked in.
She was very much the star of the programme, particularly with the guys. Although a lot of my schoolmates were rather keen on her, personally I always preferred the Kate Jackson character.
Moments like this often throw things into perspective. In retrospect, it was the start of a lifetime of preferring smart but awkward women ahead of the more glamorous types.
