Degrees

If you think about it:

1. I am connected to Manuel Legarda by two degrees (me >son of> mom >teacher of> Manuel).

2. In the same token, I am connected to Mimi Gates (Bill’s mother, yes) via my sister (me >brother of> ate >friend of> Mimi).

3. And (this blew my mind away) I am connected to Queen’s Brian May by seven degrees (me >related to> my sister / my niece >studies/ student of> St. Scholastica’s College >school of> Cory Aquino >wife of> Benigno Aquino Jr. >topic of director> Robert Markowitz >hired as musical director> Brian May).

Brian May is cool. Seriously. And it’s amazing what the mind can think of when it is sleep-deprived.
