Party like it's 1732.

Today is George Washington's birthday. Please post a short letter to George relating your favorite drunk story, written as if you lived during the 18th Century. Mr. Washington took laudanum for most of his adult life to cope with the discomfort of his bad teeth, so he will know what you're talking about.

It's time to play Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. Please connect yourself to Mr. Bacon using up to six links. You may use films and tv shows as links or you can use other types of contact as well. The only rule for a link is that both people must know each other's first name. For instance, if you know the barista who serves Mr. Bacon his daily morning coffee, it's reasonable to assume that he knows her first name. This might prove to be helpful.
