Q. How did you hear about The Sauce?
A. I saw the display ad for bARTersauce when I was at the EtsySaver.com website. This ad made me curious. I wasn’t sure if I should eat it, wear it, or play with it. I had to go and find out!

Q. What % of your underwears have you made and what % have you bought?

As in normally the case, I subjected Kevin to several of my "interview" questions.

Q: If you heard that sometimes people go into a room heated to 105 degrees and 40% humidity and do 90 minutes of yoga, what would you say?
A: No thank you.  My aerobics class at the YMCA is plenty for me.  No need for additional torture.

Q: What kind of potatoes are your favorite?

Eric was kind enough to tolerate a batch of my "interview" questions.

A note from The Sauce -- all of my references to Jo Jo are about my friend Jessica who is a roller derby lady and a burlesque lady and a crafty vunderkind.

It may become apparent that I have no idea what vunderkind means. Or, by some chance, I may have used it correctly. Either way - keep it to yourself.

I sent Sean several story ideas for this trade.

He eventually wrote a story for a couple of them, but I had to call him a douche in order to get him to do it. I'm not proud of it, but a lady does what a lady has to:

 
SUGGESTION: Zombies. What happens when zombies get phone calls where the number is marked as private. What do they do? What DO they do?

Juli makes stuff.

You can check out her stuff on her Artfire shop and keep up with her travels on her blog, JulisJewels.

Will Trades Me a French Phone, a Russian Book, Totem Pole Shaped Trophy & a Cross for Terror Clown Painting, No Face Wedding, Hugs for Jesus Statue and Dooky Kiss

Will and some baby
Will, as a hippie

Here's the thing.

Lots of people like to send "extras" to The Sauce along with their official trade offers. Lots of people. Pretty much everyone. I've let it go in the past, but - like I say below - I decided to make an example of Will and punish him for doing the same thing that many others have done in the past.

Nik Trades me Robotic Bug for Alien in Ship and Two Headed Boy Painting for Evil Looking Doll Lamp

Nik and PBS

Nik answered these "interview" questions even though I've asked him about 100 rounds of questions through all of our trades and these are very much the bottom of the barrel.

Q. How tall are you?
A. 5'4

Q. Why/how did you start scary-art.com?

Rhiannon is one of our very good friends who we have grown so old with that we actually get together and play Bridge until 3am every Saturday night.

Woooooooo-hot-damn-party-people!

DOUBLE! REDOUBLE!

The fun never ends. Until one of the women cries or someone has to talk about Bridge night in couple counseling. Then, it's time to go home.

Rhiannon was kind enough to answer my odd and somewhat reduntant interview questions:

Q. Do you like cats?

Sean trades me "Old Man Murder" for "Fangy Tomato and Friend"

Old Man Murder

Sean lives far away, so we do all of our trades through the mail.

Now, it's really exciting for me to get a package in the mail, examine it momentarily then, rip it open in a rush to find the great art inside. And, as exciting as that is, that description probably won't remain exciting through the history of all Sean's trades. He's made a few:
