I'm back in Seattle and may have already beaten jet lag by having never switched my watch from west coast time. It feels good to be back in my apartment. The five flights back were pretty uneventful. The only noteworthy event was that I saw Forest Whitaker in the upper class lounge of Virgin Atlantic at Heathrow airport. I was going to walk up to him and tell him how much I loved The Crying Game and Waiting To Exhale until I realized that would have made me sound like a jerk. I doubt that people in the movie business like being told their stuff rocked...a decade ago.

PS: If you are ever in the UK and you hear someone described as being Asian, it means they are from India not East Asia as is the case in the US.

My favorite Forest Whitaker movie is slightly more recent: "Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai."

I'm from the UK. Most of the Asians in the UK are from India/Pakistan/Bangladesh because of various historical reasons. So that's what I think of when I hear the word Asian. I would probably describe someone from East Asia as Far Eastern. But it's only "Far" from here, so that's a very Longitude-zero-centric term :-)

What would you call someone from India/Pakistan/Bangladesh? If you called them Indian then you may offend them if they aren't.

I don't know how I stumbled into your blog, quite, but I thought this was an interesting post. Forest Whitaker was in Iceland (where I live) not all that long ago filming some movie with Julia Stiles, I think? It's called A Little Trip to Heaven and was written and directed by some people here in Iceland. I can't comment on whether the film or Whitaker's work is any good (I have my doubts on the script) but at least the guy's still working. Alas, I think an actor's ego is always bolstered by praise, even if it is for decades-old work. I'm also told that Whitaker is a very genuine and friendly person.
