Thursday Dance Party: Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon Contest

Who doesn't love Footloose? Who doesn't want to dance like a fool when that music comes on?
And who wants to play Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon in honor of the original Ren from the 80's classic? Thought you'd say yes!

Okay, here's how to play, in case you've been living under a rock all these years and have never tried to see how close your connection to Sir Bacon is. I'll go first: A few weeks ago when I was in Malibu with my daughter in law's mom (aka my bestie Pennie), we parked in front of Julia Roberts' house to go to the private beach. (long story, but let me say it was fabulous) Julia Roberts starred in Flatliners with Kevin Bacon. This makes me 2 degrees from Kevin Bacon.

Comment and let me know how many degrees it takes you to connect yourself to Kevin Bacon and I'll put you in the running for three possible prizes -- a signed copy of my very own HAUNTED, and signed copies of books by two of my Ninja Writers of Texas Austin Comic Con cohorts, The Emerald Tablet by PJ Hoover and Trudy by Jessica Lee Anderson.

Contest will run through Sunday night and I'll announce the winner on Monday.
Until then, let's dance:

Kevin Bacon and I were married in 1987. Although not to each other! Oh, and we're both still married. Still not to each other ;)

I want to play! You don't have to enter me in the contest, though, because it would be cheating for a ninja to try to win other ninjas books. ;)

OK. So. My good friend Amy went to high school with Jim Parsons from the Big Bang Theory. Jim Parsons was in Garden State with Natalie Portman. Natalie Portman was in The Professional with Gary Oldman, and Gary Oldman played Lee Harvey Oswald in JFK with... Kevin Bacon!

Ta Da!

(This is one of my favorite games ever.)

Okay, let me see if this works...

I met Joss Whedon last year (*SQUEE*) and he directed Serenity, which starred Nathan Fillion who is now on the TV show Castle. His daughter is played by Molly Quinn who was in My One and Only with Kevin Bacon!

Yay! It worked! I'm 4 people away from Kevin Bacon. =)

Oh fun! I'll play. I worked on the tv show ER with Noah Wyle who was in A Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon so my Bacon number is 2.

I love this game. I was Mikhail Barishnakov's dresser for a show who was in Sex and the City with Sarah Jessica Parker who was in the original Footloose with Kevin Bacon. I guess that makes me 3
