The Deadliest Men - The Brothers Hillstrand from Deadliest Catch

Yes, I know the photo is crappy.

The person taking the photo didn't know what they were we can tell. :)

Yes, if you squint you will see that is the Brother's Hillstrand from Discovery's Deadliest Catch. So how was I lucky enough to end up in a yummy Hillstrand sandwich? They were doing a signing in Cleveland so I headed up to get a book signed and here I am.

They were almost exactly as they appear on the show - warm, welcoming and just fun to hang out with.

After the signing we hit the bar (yes, I always make it a habit to pick up signing authors and take them out to get drunk - LOL!) and had a fun filled evening watching the latest episode of Deadliest Catch while downing the world famous Duck Farts - a drink from Alaska. They're really good and the recipe is below.

The funniest part of the evening was watching the show...then looking over to see Johnathan....then seeing Andy on tv....and there he was less than 2 feet away. Talk about SURREAL. They hadn't seen the show so we were yelling at the screen and they gave me all the scoop on the other kids on the show.
And what was the most important question I asked them? Does Sig go tanning? He's starting to look a little like George Hamilton....

Andy - thanks for letting me pester you unmercilessly with questions, see you soon.

Johnathan - it is out there man - and its YOURS for the taking - love you!

Duck Fart Recipe:
1 part Kahlua
1 part Irish Cream
1 part Crown Royal (Whiskey)
You can either layer it in a glass or shake it up with ice like a martini - Watch out, they will KICK your ass. :)

JC, You are one seriously LUCKY lady. I just wish the photo had turned out better and I'm sure you do too.

I may have to try that drink. It sounds great.

That is awesome. I have a huge phobia of all things sea related but I LOVE this show.

Woohoo! Way to go. I haven't allowed myself to get hooked on the show yet. I'm recalling my Ice Truckers addiction from last summer.

OMG, How totally COOL!! Someone sent me the link, the pic popped up and I was all 'Hey, that's Andy and Jonathan' LOL. Then I read your write up. HOW COOL!! I am SO hooked on the show.

I am SO jealous! You, my dear, lead a much more interesting life than I do, but I honestly know why that is--it's because you are so NOT afraid to try things and do things and put yourself out there. Actually, I'm not jealous, merely in AWE!!! And I do love that show!
