Eli the Goat - one of the Mistress’s charming handcrafted finger puppets.
Some time ago, I wrote a post that described the vaguely remarkable fact that my posterior is removed by only two degrees of separation from those of Marilyn Monroe and Jacqueline Kennedy. Strange, but true.
As the Missus and I were watching Downton Abbey last night - yes, Esteemed Readers, I do watch Downton Abbey - we both realized that we are, in like wise, connected with Masterpiece Theatre host Laura Linney.
It seems that Miss Linney collects needle-felted finger puppets - specifically, the ones hand made by the Mistress of Sarcasm. It’s a thin sort of connection, but nevertheless, it exists. Two degrees of separation once again.
Appropriately enough, Miss Linney’s earliest acting credit was in the 1990-92 period, when she was an understudy in a stage production of - what else? - Six Degrees of Separation. How ’bout dat?
