I have no idea what Kevin Bacon has to do with six degrees of separation or what it really even means. I’m pretty sure it has something to do with being able to link yourself to pretty much any other person on the planet through six other people where one knows the other who knows the other…
Um, okay, so it’s 1:00 a.m. and I have no idea what I’m saying.
Grinning about a little Twitter “conversation” Gabe and I had with ex-football great (and apparently Dancing With The Stars contestant–I had no idea) Kurt Warner just now. In other words, Twitter = a bypass of the whole six degrees thing.
I got home at 11:00 pm after talking to an AMAZING (and huge) group of women about loving on their husbands. Sometime after midnight, Gabe and I were both on our computers when he says something about Kurt Warner tweeting some football player who’s on Gabe’s fantasy team. Confused? Of course you are.
Gabe sends a tweet to Kurt:
@kurt13warner Glad to see you’re on Twitter. One of a few athletes I’ll actually be looking forward to following. Appreciate your faith!
Then he says, “Hey! Kurt Warner just replied to me!”
@GabeTaviano Thanks, hope u enjoy following! Glad u are aboard!
Hey! I want a tweet from Kurt Warner! So I write:
@kurt13warner My husband is sitting at his computer 6 feet from me, and you just replied to him. Me too?? Pretty please??
“He replied to you!” Gabe says.
@marlataviano You got it… can’t have any jealousy or envy in the house! Now go give him a kiss, so no hard feelings!
@kurt13warner I just did! We are CRACKING UP! Thanks so much, Kurt. We’re big fans and are so inspired by your outspoken faith!
“He replied to you again!” Gabe says.
@marlataviano OK, you get 2! Now go make it up to your husband somehow… not saying how, but sure he will have a good idea!
@marlataviano OK, not ALL, but yes ALOT!
@marlataviano Just trying to help a brother out! He owes me one or like 30 votes for DWTS next week, LOL!
Oh my goodness, this is hard work searching back through tweets and copying and pasting them in here. WHY AM I EVEN STILL UP?!
The rest of the conversation pretty much went like this: We told him we’d watch DWTS (we just watched some on Hulu–wow, I’m not a very good TV watcher) and that I’d send Brenda (his wife) a copy of ITAHTA.
And now it’s 1:35 a.m. and Gabe had to help me with the post because all the tweets I copied kept messing up the format of everything and I have tears in my eyes and am trying not to cry because I’m so exhausted.
And that’s that. I’m going to hate myself in the morning.
Have a great weekend! May you tweet with someone famous! (or not)
