your Bacon number
Ha! This blog is so full of nothing.
So, the guy on the radio just now, as I was finishing cups for Linda, starts talking about your 'Bacon number', or in six degrees of seperation style: how many direct connections are between you and Kevin Bacon???
WELL! My old pal Denis and I have a very low and good number. It goes like this for us:
Denis and I were freshmen at Bennington College, starting in 1983, living in Leigh House. We were, as all freshman boys are, little weenies, and there was this handsome upperclassman GOD living up the hall a couple of doors, Rob Sedwick. Rob is Kyra Sedgwick's brother, and he has acted in soaps and whatnot for years. In 1983, if I remember correctly, he was big, muscular, handsome (do I have to say this? his sister is beautiful, so it isn't a surprise), and went around in wife beater t-shirts and one can imagine he did well with the ladies, because there were very few men at our college, the ratio was something like 2 women for every man. But anyway, so we lived down the hall from Rob, and even said hello to him in passing, and his sister is Kyra, who married KEVIN BACON! Heck, Kevin is like, practically my cousin, wouldn't you say, and he seems so cool, and she does too.
OK, so I think Denis and I can claim a THREE. We are only 3 steps from Kevin Bacon, and if he ever stops by my house, the beers are cold and there would be plenty of chips and salsa.
