IN Famous

You know the game about the 6 degrees of separation? If you don't know what it is, it's the theory that every human being is separated by every other human being by only 6 degrees, or 6 other people. It's also known as the Kevin Bacon game. Because Kevin Bacon has been in about a trillion movies, you can connect pretty much any actor or actress in a movie with others in that movie, and then in movies that they've been in and so on until you get to a movie with Kevin Bacon in it.

I've realized, through the six degrees theory, that I'm basically famous, because I know people that know people that are famous.

For instance, I know the reigning Miss Idaho, Elise Davis. She's my best friend's little sister. I've known her since she was probably 5. I also know last year's Miss Idaho, Sadie Quigley. Her mom was my piano teacher for several years, and I remember when she was born. (Elise is on the left, Sadie on the right.)

I also found out on Saturday that Shera knows Stephenie Meyer. So because I know get the idea.

And my brother-in-law, Spencer, works for the Buffalo Bills. Here's a video of him helping the Quarterback, Trent Edwards. He's in a gray shirt and blue shorts, and you can see him at about 20 seconds in, and then a couple of more times.

So I'm almost famous!

And because I'm not creative by myself, I stole my post title from "Three Amigos". They get a telegram from a lady in Mexico that thinks they are real gunfighters instead of movie stars, and she's asking for their help to defeat their local "bully", El Guapo. The telegram calls El Guapo "infamous" (a really bad guy), but they think it means more than famous, like extra famous or something. They say it "IN famous". I couldn't find that clip, but I found another one that I like.

Okay, I couldn't help it. Here's a second clip from "Three Amigos". Enjoy!

I tell my kidlets that I keep some of their assinments so what I can sell them on e-bay later when they are rich and famous. I figure that with something like 160 kids each year, some old tests and essays have got to pay off for me someday. :)

Okay, I just had an epiphany. I think our husbands (mine, yours, and Beads') should do "My Little Buttercup" for the next Hale Family Reunion. Seriously. My claim to fame - I once sat on the tube next to the girl who played Georgiana Darcy in A&E's P&P. Pretty lame.

My 2 degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon... when Clint and I lived in Jackson Hole we kept hoping we would see someone famous... My family came to visit us and went hiking WITHOUT us and hiked next to Kevin and his wife Kyra. They were very nice apparently. I almost saw someone famous. So you are only 3 degrees away from Kevin.

The Three Amigos is an all time favorite. I got to see in a movie theater with my family. We used to sing My Little Buttercup to my little brother when he was a baby to get him to stop crying, and it usually worked!

Cool! :)
And hey, Elise was recently on the Ellen Show (with Miss America and all the other contestants for this year) And...Kevin Bacon has been on Ellen!
