That’s right, fake internet friends! Yours truly is officially only one degree from Kevin Bacon! As you may have guessed, I’m working as an extra on some movie this afternoon. I would totally tell you the name of it, but I forgot to ask. As soon as I heard ‘…blah blah blah starring Kevin Bacon…’ I immediately said, ‘Absolutely, I will.’
I know what you’re all thinking: Geez Sarah, I’m sure there are at least twenty people within spitting distance who could tell you the name of the movie, just ask! First of all – people really don’t like it when you spit on them (or so I’ve heard) so the fact that you’d even suggest that, makes you all terrible people and besides, I don’t want to be that girl who doesn’t know the name of the movie…or at least that girl who admits to not knowing the name of the movie. That’s lame. Second of all, get off my back! If I don’t figure it out by the end of the day, I’ll just call Kevin later. I’m assuming now that I’m in the First Degree Circle that one of his assistants will be around to distribute all of his personal contact info.
Now that I think about it, with all of the background work that I’ve been doing lately, I was probably already only two degrees away – three tops. But one degree? One measly little degree? That’s hardly any degrees at all! I mean, if it were only one degree outside, it would be REALLY cold. (I swear that made sense in my head. Not so much now that I see it in writing, but what’s done is done and there’s nothing I can do about it now. Except delete that line. But then I’d have to delete all of the subsequent lines and that sounds like a lot of work so let’s all agree to just get over it, shall we?)
Hey, if I’m only one degree away from Kev, does that mean that all of you who are lucky enough to know me in real life (or at the very least are frequent commenters on the blog) are now only two degrees from Kevin Bacon? Oh, I think it does. So go forth and bask in the smug superiority you get to feel over all of your friends and relations who are not fortunate enough to have discovered this blog! Or – better idea – you could tell everyone you know about my blog and then they would only be two degrees from Kevin Bacon too! I bet that would make a lot of people super happy.
Look at all the good I do in the world…
