Nik Trades me Pee Wee for Fancy Mask and Accoutrements

Nik and a Dead Guy?

Nik and I have done so many trades that I've pretty much run out of stories to tell about them.

And I've run out of "interview" questions to ask him. And once, I've already made him make up his own "interview" questions and answer them. So we've pretty much come to the end of story telling about our trades especially since they happen through the mail. There's only so many times I can talk about that one lady at the post office who hates me.

She does though.

And she's really mean.

Nik Trades me Drag Queen Clown for Picture of Amber

Crazy Nik Face
Amber Alert By Nicolas Caesar

Nik trades with me a couple of times a month at least so I'm not quite sure how many "interview" questions he has had to endure but I do know that I now have a lot of trouble coming up with good ones.

For this trade I made Nik think of five questions and answer them. I know, I'm surprised he even talks to me anymore.

Q. What are you working on now?

Tara Trades Me Twisted Tree Tee for Two Headed Boy Painting

Tara and Rosalie makin' a bARTer Sauce trade

Tara and I often share a space at crafty events and the like so that she can sell shirts to everyone who walks by and Doug and I can sit there, surrounded by Shower Arts and be really supportive of her.

She designs fantastic shirts and screenprints them in her basement in her jammies.

Nik Trades me Tattooed Vintage Farting Duck for Two Red Screamers

Nik or Vanilla Ice?

Nik offered me this Vintage Farting Duck that was very cool in its own right but I asked him to tattoo it for me.

I'm glad I did. It was cool before but now it's freaking awesome. It also proves that I can make Nik do some things....maybe not anything...but at least some things.

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

Nik Trades me Hopeful Caterpillar with a Bunch of Stars and Crap for Still Life

Nik, weirder

I am an extremely lazy person and actually asked Nik to write his own hilarious interview questions and then answer them.

Must people would have told me to go jump in the lake. But Nik didn't. He wrote the questions. Why? Because he is a stand up guy, that's why. With lots of free time, I imagine.

Nicolas trades me "Scary Clown" and "Drinkey Clown" for "Four Boobed Alien with Dingle" and "Pokemon Drawing and copy of Other Voices"

More and more trades are happening through the mail these days as bARTer Sauce expands to every corner of the world to prepare for our eventual takeover/world domination.

I ran to the post office just before closing and the same woman helped me who got mad at me last time for trying to mail huge packages two minutes before the post office closes.

This time nothing happened.

Nothing at all.

She was even almost pleasant.

So that's not a good story at all.

I got the awesome Dangerine shadow box the other day along with an email from her that said he and Nik have been working on their next Sauce trades.

I can't wait!

I should also mention that she is one of only two or three people who have actually supplied the 14 or so different ways to contact them that I request with each bARTer Sauce trade. She's detail oriented. That's for sure. TEACH ME!

She was kind enough to answer my dumb questions and also tell me the dumbest thing Nik has ever done. he he he
