I think your Grandmother needs to cough up some anecdotes about this!
I just want to pop him on a bit of toast and eat him right up.

Degrees of separation between us/them

Post by foolhardycousingeorge » Wed Nov 17, 2010 10:16 pm

Back in the late eighties, and in the early nineties, before she ventured into comedy, Denise Scott worked in the newsagent on my local main street.

It is possible that I would have purchased a video game magazine from her.

Denise Scott is a regular on Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation, which is hosted by Shaun Micallef. Shaun appeared in several episodes of Thank God You're Here.

That's three degrees of separation.

1. My best friend from childhood is Don Walker's nephew.
2. Don released an album with Tex Perkins
3. Tex has been interviewed by Tony on Get This

I can say that I have been in the same room with Don and make it one step less but I was too young to remember.

The MC of my trivia night had a bit part on on episode of Utopia.

She is a part time actor.

That's one degree of separation.

One of the women in my trivia team attended Melbourne University at the same time as the original D-Generation members. She mentioned going to see on campus performances at lunch time, and being a fan of The D-Generation TV series. That's one degree of separation.
