Six degrees of separation

6 degrees

It's 2:30am and I can't sleep, thanks in large part to a nearly 3 hour nap I took when I laid down with Robbie at bedtime. I've hit all my usual internet haunts. I've watched Ace of Cakes and The Office on DVR and am now half-way through American Idol. And I'm still awake.

So I decided to play my own game of "Six Degrees of Separation." I randomly clicked on one of my followers: Jennifer and followed her profile to her blog Savings Chatter. That's the 1st degree.

2nd degree: One of Jennifer's followers, again selected at random, whose name is also Jennifer. Her blog Rundpinne "showcases my exploits in knitting and life in general."

3rd degree: From Rundpinne, I ended up on Crazy Book Slut (sorry for the language, that's really what it's called) written by Tena.

4th degree: Tena didn't have any followers displayed, so I picked a blog off her blog roll and found my way to The Chic Geek.

5th degree: For this one, I thought it was time for a male blogger, so I clicked on one of The Chic Geek's guy followers. It turned out to be Tranquility Jones' site Montana-tude. Hmmm...maybe Tranquility is what I need for that restlessness I described earlier?

Last stop, 6th degree: Appropriately the last site is The Surly Writer written by Michelle Hickman of Pennsylvania.

Well, that was fun. Check out these sites, maybe you'll find a new fave to add to your list (as long as it doesn't replace the 4th Frog!). Or try the 6 Degrees game on your blog.

Now I am starting to get tired. Finally. Just in time to squeeze in 3 hours of sleep!

Thanks so much for mentioning me in your post and dropping by.

I have done the same, leap-frogging from blog to blog (figured that choice of wording would be appropriate here). It is never a dull moment. :)
