Ha HA! We still got it...

Friday night, Meghan and I had an "Abandoned WAGs Night Out". Our Jasons were both otherwise occupied with worky type things. We decided it was our own little date night. Apparently, she was playing the role of the boy and I was the girl. She made the reservation and kept the locale secret from me, got us there (still without me knowing the destination), ordered the first round and chose the wine. All the while, French Sade-ish music was pulsing through the room and the entire place was lit by candle light. Tres romantique! In all seriousness, we had a great evening and she picked a FABULOUS restaurant - Beach Blanket Babylon in Notting Hill. It's made up in a very shabby chic slash gothic meets Gaudi revival decor and is super-dee-duper kewl. (That was for you Cat.) Apparently, it's a favorite haunt of Jude Law and Sienna Miller and other British celebs. Anyway, after our fantabulous meal, we decided to have one more drink at the bar before heading home. As we were hanging out, enjoying our bevvies, this guy walks up to us and starts chattting us up. Within mere seconds, his friend appears and, seemingly with our best interest at heart, asks us if guy number one is bothering us. We, being the straight-shooting gals that we are, both hold up our diamond-encrusted left hands and say "Well, to be fair, you're both wasting your time because we're taken. And there are loads of gorgeous single women here that you could have far better luck with." This, however, did not seem to deter them. They continued to chat us up and eventually, a third friend popped up and asked us if the first two dudes were bothering us. (This must be the new pick-up routine.) We're standing there, all smiles and nods and trying to be polite, waiting for the moment they'll realize that we are actually serious about having significant others but that moment just doesn't come... not for a while anyway. Then comes the best compliment a twirty can receive. These dudes were 25 years of age and were completely shocked that we were 29/30 years of age. Boo ya. Still got it.
