But first...My condolences to the families of those killed in the London bombings. This is so horrifying - I have to get my mind around it and will hopefully be able to post some thoughts tomorrow. Please, anyone taking mass transit - be careful and cautious. Mrs. Mogul - hope you and yours are ok!!!
I don't know if any of you have read my 100 Things, but one of them is that I am 1/2 of an elite drinking team. Here is that story, and an introduction to the other 1/2.
Patsy used to date Hub's friend. Patsy and I were friendly, but I was better friends with her boyfriend. Then, the four of us went to Aruba and Patsy and I bonded. We realized we had a lot in common, but one of the most glaring commonalities (is that a word?) was that we both like to get our drink on.
Hub and Patsy's boyfriend (now her ex...whom we will just call "F&A") started giving us nicknames based on our superb drinking skills. The first were Jack and Daniels, given to us by F&A. We were also Deb and Beth from the horrendous yet quotable HBO movie "Hysterical Blindness" (and everyone still calls me Deb). And, we were Patsy and Eddie from the BBC show Absolutely Fabulous (we still call her Patsy). Later, after watching the movie Charlie's Angels, Hub was reminded of the scene where Lucy Liu was trying to figure out how to tell her boyfriend that she was a spy. She comes up with "I am 1/3 of an elite crime-fighting team." So, Hub dubbed us Charlie's Angels and said we were each "1/2 of an elite drinking team".
For a while, we thought that perhaps there should be a third Angel. Striking the Charlie's Angels pose with only two people was not so hot. So we began our search. At first, we thought it was the bartender at the bar we hang out at. But she turned out to be way too odd for us. She was always trying to look down my shirt, and she was quite clingy and needy. We decided to pass on her.
Our best option was our friend, whom I will call Britney (her story will be a post soon). She was one of the few girls who could keep up with us, so we were pretty sure she was The One. So sure, in fact, that I bought each of us cool blingin' "Angel" necklaces:
You'll notice there are only 2 of us in this pic - because alas, Britney was so not the third angel. You'll know why when I get around to posting about her.
There were a few other contenders, but in the end we decided that being 1/2 is better than being 1/3 anyway. So we are Charlie's Angels, and 1/2 of an elite drinking team.
So without further ado, I'd like to introduce you to Patsy, the other 1/2! She finally started her own blog, called Drinks Well With Others, which you can be sure will be filled with odd tidbits of her odd life. Go check her out, please! And tell her True says hi!
