This will go down as one of my personal favorites. Not only did I spend nearly two hours chatting with one of my very favorite authors, but Andy got smashed and publicly declared her love for me. Who wouldn’t be thrilled with that?? Be sure to check out Georgia Beers’ work!
We were supposed to focus on Georgia’s new book, Slices of Life, but I couldn’t help myself and we went all over the place. Some of Georgia’s books are favorites of mine and many of my friends so I had stuff to talk about! Not just for myself, but for my friends. I’m a giver, what can I say?
You would think having Georgia Beers on the show would be enough of a reason to listen but, trust me, you don’t want to miss Andy this time around. Not that you’d ever want to miss Andy but this show is definitely one all the Andy fans will love. Oh, and she totally embarrassed me at the end of the show but it’s funny so completely worth it. So listen all the way to the end!
This is the first, but I hope not the last, episode that we have listeners call in with comments and questions for the author and it was a success! A big congrats to Michelle for winning an autographed book from Ms. Beers for calling in. But don’t worry, you’ll all have your chance to win a signed book, too. Georgia has been VERY generous and offered up FOUR more copies of either Slices of Life, 96 Hours, or Starting from Scratch to those who answer the following question: Which of the chapters in Slices of Life would you like to be made into a full length novel and if you haven’t read Slices of Life yet, why not? That’s it! Just post your answer in the comments section below and you’ll be entered in the drawing to win! Get your post done no later than 2/8 because we’ll be picking the winners on the 9th when we record the next show.
At the bottom of this post is a video of me making my Dirty Martini. Georgia had a Skinny Pirate and Andy had THREE vodka martinis. And she’s feeling pretty damn good for a “morning after.”
Here are Georgia’s instructions on making a Skinny Pirate: it’s a shot of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum (or in my case, more like two shots) over ice. Then add Diet Coke to fill the glass. Diet is important because regular Coke makes it way too sweet. Garnish with a lime, which is not necessary, but makes a big difference.
Alright you wonderful, lovely people, give a listen, have a laugh, and then get entered to win!
