Emmett came over to our studio during the First Thursday Art Walk on my birthday to trade me this awesome Kill You in Your Sleep Teddy Bear Lamp.

I gave him a Single Parent Paper Bag Skeleton Puppet Costume that Brit made in honor of some small paper bag puppets that Emmett traded her about a year ago while they both competed in the Live bARTer Sauce trade made onstage at The People's Republic of Komedy Laffhole show. I didn't trade with either of them. But they did trade with each other.

Brit and I go way back. We used to work together at Intiman Theatre. She designed the bARTer Sauce logo.

We've consumed beers at the same time together. She's the one who got Colin's unfortunate paper mache hedgehog and finally ripped it open to find the surprise inside.

And once, just once, I convinced her to get on stage at a Laffhole show and tell me a story about an item she wanted to trade to bARTer Sauce.

Brit's Story about the Single Parent of a Paper Bag Skeleton Puppet Family:

Little did you know that this box, once opened, would compel an single adult female PaperBagSkeletonPuppet to leave her two small children behind. I don't know what was in the box... but, whatever it was... it was way more important to her than the two little ones she had left at home pinned to the refrigerator that night.

Stacy Trades Me "Fangy Tomato" and "Happy Jestor" for "Credit Card Costume"

Stacy was kind enough to find a ride to First Thursday in an automobile large enough to carry away a giant, foam credit card costume.

Thank goodness. oh man, I am not sorry to see that gigantic foamy thing leave my posession.

Go free young credit card. Ride into the night with Stacy and fill up her stupid closets with your credit card-ness!

I did another trade live, onstage at Laffhole on 10/10/07. Those guys are so much fun.

This anonymous donor came by and offered me this expired credit card costume. S/he was the crowd favorite - is it because of the costume? Sexy credit card legs? Her/His good credit? The dance s/he did while wearing it?
