Jessamyn Trades me her Brain Scan and Fancy Mask (and accoutrements) for Drag Queen Clown and Kill You in Your Sleep Teddy Bear Lamp

As per usual, I have subjected Jessamyn to my own brand of "interview" questions.

This tradition began long ago when I used to pressure myself to come up with an engaging and funny story of my own to go along with each trade. Well, after about a million or so trades, it seems I have run out of stories, so now, I make my Sauce traders work extra hard by telling me a story AND answering my lame "interview questions." Personally, I think this solution is genius. Plus, I'm lazy.

Emmett's story that came with Kill You in Your Sleep Teddy Bear Lamp:

Sometimes I awaken in the middle of the night to find a teddy bear peering at me through my bedroom doorway. It just stands there pointing a stuffed paw at me accusingly. It never makes any noise but the hateful glare behind its button eyes says one thing to me...

it knows my secret.

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.

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.

Marlow offered me this doll-shaped lamp at the last First Thursday Art Walk.

I immediately accepted based soley on the level of creepiness that I felt when I looked directly into the doll's eyes.

I have to keep it at the studio -- far away from my bedroom -- because I am frightened that it will come to life and beat me to death with the little parasol lampshade.

Okay Kelly.

Seriously.

I'm only doing this because you've been such a good friend to The Sauce.

But I have to tell you.

We are definitely EVEN now.

The Lamp that Whispers to Adam in the Night

Whispering Lamp Made of Popsicle Sticks

As Adam tells it -- this lamp whispers to him in the middle of the night, so he had to get rid of it.

Wise man.

I hate inanimate objects that talk to me.

I mean, it's fine when they're willing to listen too, but when they just talk and talk and talk it gets a little old.
